Norwegian Escape floats out from the Meyer Werft building dock in Papenburg, Germany. You can watch the footage live or if you’re too late re-watch it all.

The live footage is provided by HD1080ide at a high quality. The Norwegian Escape is Norwegian Cruise Line’s largest ever cruise ship at 164,600 gross tons and carrying 4,200 passengers at double occupancy. The new ship will sail weekly seven-day cruises from her year-round homeport of Miami to the Eastern Caribbean beginning on November 14, 2015. Ports of calls include St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Tortola, British Virgin Islands and Nassau, Bahamas.

Just last month a major milestone was met with the completion of the ship’s hull artwork by Famed marine wildlife artist Guy Harvey. This float out will be the first time we get to see the finished artwork. Now the final phase of construction will begin with the interior spaces starting to come alive and crew members setting up their departments.
