Meyer Werft has handed over the 169,245 grt cruise ship 'Norwegian Encore' to Norwegian Cruise Line of Miami, USA, in Bremerhaven following extensive testing of all machinery and systems, sea trials and intensive crew training.

Norwegian Encore is the third vessels delivered by Meyer Werft in 2019. The technical equipment for entertainment on board is standard for cruise ships built in Papenburg. But the ship offers more technical measures, to protect the environment and ensure passengers can enjoy their time while showing responsibility for the environment, illustrated by features including the electric pod propulsion drive and improved hydrodynamics, together with many energy saving systems such as heat recovery or extensive water cleaning systems. The exhaust gas from energy-efficient engines is cleaned in a scrubber system.

Norwegian Encore is the third cruise ship we deliver in 2019. I am proud and thankful for the contribution of our employees and partners”, said Tim Meyer, MD Meyer Werft.

Following delivery, Norwegian Encore will be leaving Bremerhaven for Southampton, where the ship will be presented to the public for the first time. The ship will be christened on 21 November 2019 in Miami by US singer Kelly Clarkson.
