NCL Unveils Hull Artwork of Breakaway-Plus Class Ship

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled the hull artwork for Norwegian Encore, the final Breakaway-Plus class ship. The design can be seen on the ship when it arrives in 2019.

Norwegian Encore Hull Artwork Revealed

The hull artwork for Norwegian Encore has been revealed and it has a Spanish flare thanks to the creativity of Eduardo Arranz-Bravo, the award-winning Spanish artist. The design is more vibrant than ones in the past and the labyrinth of color is inspired from Arranz-Bravo life by the sea in Barcelona, Spain.

Arranz-Bravo said:

“Norwegian Cruise Line is a dynamic, pioneering company known for its innovative experiences and breathtaking collection of beautifully designed ships.”

“I am honored to not only bring that vibrancy to life even more on Norwegian Encore but also showcase my love for the ocean and my hometown of Barcelona.”

Recognized for his inventive and humanistic approach to abstract art, Arranz-Bravo’s work is showcased throughout the world and portrays a constant evolution that some refer to as futuristic.  He is highly regarded, having been the recipient of countless awards and accolades, and was one of three artists chosen to represent the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona.

Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings said:

“We are well-known for our iconic hull designs and know that Arranz-Bravo’s lively design will complement the colorful destinations in the Caribbean that Norwegian Encore will visit when she debuts next year.”

Norwegian Encore is going to be the final ship in the Breakaway-Plus class and sister ship to Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Joy, and Norwegian Bliss. The ship is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany and will debut in Miami, Florida in November 2019.
