Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest Breakaway Plus-class ship, Norwegian Bliss, is one step closer to delivery after she was floated at Meyer Werft building dock in Papenburg, Germany.
The third vessel in the class will remain in the shipyard port for the final phase of construction, until its journey down the River Ems towards the North Sea, scheduled for mid-March.
Measuring 329.7 metres by 41.4 metres, the 167,800GT vessel with hull artwork by Wyland accommodates 4,000 guests.
The crew will now be preparing Norwegian Bliss for her first guests to arrive after delivery on April 19.
Norwegian Bliss will feature a 180-degree observation lounge.
