The world's 3rd-largest cruise shipowner - NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line - is sending a proportion of its North America-homeported cruise ships to Europe. Most of them arrived this weekend. Some liners have been reunited with sisterships already deployed in Europe since May 2020.
First to arrive were two of NCL’s newest vessels - Norwegian Encore (2019-built, 169,116 GT) followed by the Norwegian Bliss (2018-built, 168,028 GT). Both were bound for Copenhagen Denmark, with Encore arriving on Wednesday, August 12, and Bliss on Sunday, August 16.
One of the last NCL ships to arrive - Norwegian Star (91,740 GT) docked in Southampton UK on Sunday, August 16. The ship followed the Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas (168,666 GT) which had arrived on Saturday, August 15.
