I already have a birthday cruise booked for November of 2019.
This year's B-day cruise is on Bliss, the final Alaska cruise of the season and getting back on for the Pacific Coast cruise.

You aren’t paying attention very well. Google NCL Leonardo.

Very happy to read Encore will be heading to Miami. I received an email from NCL today with the announcement!!!!
Already booked on the Sky Princess inaugural on Oct 20 to the 27th.....so Encorescrossing is out. So now to figure when to get on the Encore.....maybe a NewYears cruise? Too many new ships �� after Encoreits Virgin Voyages......
Help, I can’t stop cruising!

Ya, it's weird that they based the rendering on the Escape, when they already have the Joy and Bliss that actually reflect what Encore will look like.

At least we know for sure it won't be Escape 2 based on the block plan. Interesting that there seems to be an additional enclosed deck aft. Looks a little weird IMHO.

I wonder what the hull design will be??? Maybe images of all the Breakaway class ships in a row...leading up to the Encore? Or maybe giant waves.....representing the Seas that NCL calls home ��
More info paleeeze.

Enclosed aft deck.....maybe a pool with a magrodome? Anything but a go cart track......an enlarged Vibe would generate more revenue imo.

I *did* check EU.Encore.NCL.com but it's not live yet, I guess we'll be waiting for the new intern to upload them.. :P

Inward lifeboats for Encore by the way, same indents as Bliss and Joy in the superstructure. A large difference is the further aft placed stabilizer fin, needed for the extra aft deck?

Will this one be built like the Bliss to be able to travel through Panama Canal I wonder? Wasn’t bliss different than the other ships?

It’s interesting to me that NCL doesn’t seem inclined to retire any ships. Admittedly I have not been cruising long, but are retired ships typically in just awful shape? I went on NCL Sun last September and even for an older ship was happy with it overall (bathroom curtain not my favorite).

with the new locks at the panama canal, there is no issue with building bigger and bigger ships

back in the day, ships had to be built within a certain size to fit in the old locks ( panamax size ships)

Yes, it must be renamed. I’ve already lost it twice.
