Float Out Of Norwegian Joy From Meyer Werft, Papenburg

Today marked the floating out ceremony of Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest ship, Norwegian Joy from the dry dock at Meyer Werft, Papenburg . The Breakway Plus ship is scheduled to debut in China this summer with the ship designed specifically for Chinese guests.

The ship was moved from the undercover drydock at a slow speed to an ‘equipment’ pier at the shipyard where further fitting out and finishing touches such as the addition of her funnel will take place and tests carried out before she makes her conveyance voyage at the end of March from the shipyard along the River Ems to the North Sea where she will carry out final sea trials.

At 168,800 tons, she has capacity for 4200 guests on board in 2100 cabins and is currently the largest cruise ship to be constructed at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg.  She is expected to be delivered to Norwegian Cruise Line in April before sailing to China, where she will be home-ported in Shanghai and Tianjin (Beijing).
