The Norwegian Bliss cruise ship departed Meyer Werft in Papenburg last night, Tuesday, March 13, for her conveyance along Ems River. The ship will arrive in Eemshaven on Thursday, March 15.

The 167800 GT Bliss embarked on her trip down Ems River and up to North Sea in reverse, making the passage through the sea lock of Meyer Werft, with less than 4 feet clearance. The maneuver took about 2 hours at a speed of just 0.2 knots. 

After passing through the lock, Norwegian Bliss continued along Ems.  Her journey to Eemshaven includes cruising through narrow passages of Friesenbrucke Bridge, Weener; Jann Berghaus Bridge, Leer; and Ems-Barrier, Gandersum.

When the newbuild arrives to Eemshaven, she will take on additional crew members and provisions, before heading to the North Sea for nautical and technical sea trials. It will be one of the final stages, before Norwegian Cruise Line takes delivery of its 16th ship on April 19 in Bremerhaven, Germany.
