The 4,200-passenger vessel is due to be completed in less than one year and differs from other vessels in the Breakaway-Plus class by having one more deck. The 169,145gt ship will have a length of 333.46m and a breadth of 41.4m.  
“It’s great that we can celebrate the keel-laying ceremony for the Norwegian Encore today with our partner Meyer Werft,” said Andy Stuart, NCL President. “The start of production is an important milestone, and we can rest assured in the shipyard’s expertise to built yet another first-class ship.”
The Norwegian Encore is the twelfth vessel to be built for NCL by Meyer Werft which now has an order book extending until 2023.
