This Is How Powerful the Norwegian Escape Is!

All the talk is about the Norwegian Escape these days as the large ship is getting closer to its debut. We thought this video would interest our readers showing just how powerful the large cruise ship is.

The new video from YouTube is drone footage as the Norwegian Escape was making its conveyance along the Ems river from the shipyard in Papenburg in Germany. As the ship was going through one of the locks the power from the propulsion is shown in all its glory by almost sinking a small tug boat. The ship continued through the locks backwards with no harm done but we’re pretty sure the next person to step foot on that tug will have to deal with some dirty water.

Norwegian Escape finally reached its final destination in Eemshaven, Netherlands and has also recently completed Sea trials in the North Sea. The new Breakaway Plus class vessel is now in the final preparation stages before the ship’s delivery on October 22. The 164,600 gross ton ship is currently docked at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany.

The 4,200 passenger Norwegian Escape will begin sailing year round out of Miami, Florida on November 22. The ship will sail Eastern Caribbean cruises to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Tortola, British Virgin Islands and Nassau, Bahamas.
