Construction on the Norwegian Bliss has officially started at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The ship will be identical to Norwegian Escape which is entering service November, 2015.

Now that Norwegian Escape is about to enter service for Norwegian Cruise Line, construction on sister ship Norwegian Bliss has now started. The first piece of steel was cut at the German shipyard which begins the huge construction task of the 163,000 gross ton vessel. The steel cutting was attended by cruise line and shipyard executives which is the first ceremony out of several during the year and half process.

It’s early days yet for specific details and features for Norwegian Bliss but we can expect similar spaces to the Norwegian Escape along with a few extras. The ship’s hull artwork will also be revealed, a popular element on Norwegian cruise ships. NCL will tease us with details throughout 2016 and as we get closer the ship’s delivery in Spring 2017.

Once complete the Norwegian Bliss will carry 4,200 passengers and 1,700 crew members. The ship along with the Norwegian Escape are the largest ever built for the cruise line.
