First Custom-Designed Cruise Ship for China Floats Out

Norwegian Joy, soon to be Norwegian Cruise Line’s first cruise ship custom-designed for the China market, has departed from Meyer Werft’s covered building dock II in Papenburg, Germany. The 168,800-ton ship has been under construction since September 2015, and will now move into the final phase of construction with delivery taking place on April 27, 2017.

The 3,850-passenger vessel, with her distinctive hull artwork designed by Chinese artist Tan Ping, belongs to the line’s Breakaway Plus Class, offering its customers 'first class at sea’ experiences when she debuts in China this summer.

Norwegian Joy will provide a multitude of VIP accommodations, including The Haven by Norwegian, the line’s exclusive, ship-within-a-ship luxury suite complex, which will also include an all-new Observation Deck with 180 degree views. The Concierge level is an all-new accommodations category which features larger balcony staterooms.  The ship’s accommodation offerings will also include staterooms designed specifically for families and a multitude of connecting staterooms, as well as a wide array of mini-suite, ocean view and interior staterooms, many of which feature virtual balconies.

Norwegian Joy will offer engaging and innovative activities, including a first at sea two-level competitive racetrack, an open-air laser tag course, thrilling simulator rides, and interactive video walls at the Galaxy Pavilion, as well as hover craft bumper cars.
