Review of Norwegian Joy

Launched in 2017, Norwegian Joy (ordered as "Norwegian Bliss") is the 2nd of the three Breakaway Plus-class newest and biggest NCL ships – together with Norwegian Escape (2015) and Norwegian Bliss (2018). This class ships are approx 7,000 GT larger in comparison to the company's second biggest vessel Norwegian Epic. The NCL Joy ship cost US $920 million to build (October 2012 shiporder rates).

History - construction & ownership

Norwegian Cruise Line Corporation Ltd. (Norwegian) is a wholly owned subsidiary of NCLH (Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd). This American cruise company is headquartered in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida. In 1966 Norwegian began operations under the name "Norwegian Caribbean Line". The NCL company is best known for the Freestyle Cruising concept, meaning that there are no set times and seating arrangements for meals, formal attire is not required. Norwegian is a publicly traded company with 44% publicly listed on NASDAQ, with major shareholders (as of 30 June 2014): Genting Group (28%), Apollo Global Management (20%), and TPG Capital (7.9%). NCL controls nearly 8% of the total worldwide share of cruise market.NCL Norwegian Joy cruise ship

The 163,000-ton, 5,400-passenger cruise ship Norwegian Joy is currently under construction by Meyer Werft (Papenburg, Germany). The newest of the NCL ships is scheduled to enter service for Norwegian Cruise Lines from 2017. The first name of the ship (Bliss) was selected in a USA TODAY contest. Norwegian Cruise Line largest and newest ships to date, weigh 163,000 GT each. The Joy ship boasts the innovative features found on Norwegian Getaway and Norwegian Breakaway, as well as a number of new interactive experiences.

The NCL Joy ship was ordered in 2014. The construction (under the name Norwegian Bliss) began on September 16, 2015. On October 12, 2015 it was announced that Bliss will be renamed and designed specifically for Chinese cruising market. On February 29, 2016 (leap year) the new name “Norwegian Joy” was officially announced. The name translates into "Xi Yue Hao" (Chinese glyphs 喜悦号).

The Breakaway Plus-class NCL ship Joy features food and onboard experiences catering for the preferences of Chinese holidaymakers. Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) also features a different name in China - Nuo Wei Zhen, meaning "Promising, Exclusive and Authentic". The translation of "Bliss" into Chinese doesn't have positive connotations, hence the name change.

In November 2016, Norwegian Cruise Line named Wang Leehom, the "King of Chinese Pop", as godfather to Norwegian Joy. The Chinese-American songwriter, singer, actor, film director and record producer christened the vessel at the inauguration ceremony in China 2017.

  • The Norwegian Joy cruise ship is one of the two Breakaway Plus-class (new series) vessels of Norwegian Cruise Lines. Her sister in the fleet is Norwegian Escape (October 2015). Fun fact is, that the names of both NCL ships were selected through a contest hosted on-line.
  • NCL Joy was built with new "scrubbers" (exhaust gas cleaning systems). The new technology reduces the equivalent of approx 1500 tons of the poisonous gas Sulfur Oxide. These in-line scrubbers (5 units) are lightweight and able to operate in dry mode, as well as in open and closed loops.
  • The vessel's construction officially started on September 16, 2015, with the steel cutting ceremony at Meyer Werft shipyard (Papenburg, Germany). Instead of the traditional water method (injecting the metal with heat), for NCL Joy was used the dry plasma method - for more precise cuts and creating less mess).
  • On October 12, 2015 NCL announced that the "Norwegian Bliss" named ship will be eventually renamed. The ship name “Norwegian Joy” (in Chinese “Xǐ Yue Hao”) was announced in 2016 on Feb 29. However, there are some speculations about the name "Norwegian Bliss" to be used for the NCL ship that enters service in 2018 (also a Breakaway-plus class vessel), with scheduled operations serving the North American market.
  • On April 5, 2016, was held the official keel laying ceremony for the NCL Joy at Meyer Werft shipyard (Papenburg Germany). During the ceremony, the first keel block (weight 680 tons, one of all 80 blocks comprising the vessel) was lifted by a huge crane and placed into the shipyard's covered building hall. With this event was officially started the ship's assembly. Previously, a special commemorative coin was created and during the keel laying was traditionally placed under the first building block. The coin was blessed on March 31, 2016, at XingTian Temple (Shanghai) during a pledge ceremony to the Chinese goddess of the sea "Mazu".
  • In March 2016, at Mazu Temple (Shanghai where, China) was held a traditional ceremony to obtain a blessing for the coins used in NCL Joy’s Keel laying ceremony. During the event, temple representatives gifted a Mazu ceramic statue to the NCL company. The statue was then brought to Germany for the vessel's official delivery. The statue was given a place of honor onboard the ship to carry Mazu's blessings on the repositioning cruise from Europe to China.
  • On March 4, 2017, the vessel was floated out of the shipbuilding yard's covered dock 2 and was berthed at a pier for the remaining works. The conveyance via Ems River towards North Sea is scheduled for the end of March.
  • The name of the ship's godmother (godfather in this case) was officially announced by NCL in late November 2016. This will be Wang Leehom (born 1976) - Chinese-American singer, actor, producer and movie director. The NCL Joy's godfather will also serve as the NCLH company's brand ambassador for the Chinese market, promoting NCL through various media (including social media) platforms.
  • On March 4, 2017, the vessel was floated out at Papenburg Germany. At the end of March 2017 was the planned conveyance along Ems River to North Sea. In North Sea were held sea trials before the official delivery (April 28, 2017). NCL Joy will arrive in Shanghai China in late June for year-round operations.
  • On March 26, 2017, te vessel was conveyed on Ems River from Papenburg (Germany) to Eemshaven (Holland). In the following days, the ship completed sea trials on North Sea, and was handed over to NCL on April 27.

Itineraries 2017

In November 2015, the NCL company announced that their scheduled for launch in Summer 2017 cruise ship "Norwegian Bliss" (later renamed to Joy) will be deployed for year-round operations in Asia. The NCL Joy ship is specifically designed to target the Chinese market. The vessel features a higher cruising speed allowing it to operate on longer itineraries to more distant ports of call.

  • Following the April 2017 delivery, NCL Joy started its repositioning to China. The relocation cruise itinerary included showcasing events as part of grand inaugural port tours. These 1-day events were held at each of the itinerary's ports of call - SingaporeQingdaoShenzhen and Hong Kong. VIP partner cruises were also operated from the ship's Chinese home ports Shanghai and Tianjin-Beijing.
  • The ship's christening ceremony was scheduled for June 27, 2017, led by the ship’s godfather Wang Leehom.

Godspeed to the new ship!
