Hmm, I already see people accidentally typing "NCL Escape" with they mean "NCL Epic" and vice versa, adding another "E-c---" name seems like a bad idea.

another breakaway plus ship, very similar to the escape/joy/bliss and the other breakaway class ships. I wish Norwegian would of done something a bit different like a ship similar to the MSC Seaside.

According to information posted on Norwegian's website, delivery will be 31 October 2019.

Transatlantic would probably be mid November or so.

Wish granted! Project Leonardo, the ships after Breakaway-plus, will be similar to the MSC Seaside prototype.

Are you aware that the next generation of NCL ships after this last BA/BA+ class ship will be based on the same design as the Seaside? Project Leonardo ships will be built out of Fincantieri.

Project Leonardo (NOT ENCORE)...

Just wait.....



No real details about Leonardo but the speculation is that the Haven will move to the aft of the ship and the Garden Cafe will be at the front.

Norwegian Encore will feature amenities and interactive experiences that will excite and inspire, and more details on the ship’s design, accommodations, dining and onboard offerings will be shared in the coming months. The ship will be available for reservations in March 2018.

Looks like we will have to wait until March.

Since Breakaways last cruise out of Miami ends November 17, I would expect Encore to start November 24 for a Thanksgiving cruise.
If they do a 12 TA, Nov 12 would be my guess.

I was thinking the same thing depending on the dates, itinerary and place.

I already have a birthday cruise booked for November of 2019.
