The third ship in Norwegian's Breakaway class, Norwegian Escape, will debut in October 2015. Escape will be the sister ship to Norwegian Bliss; coming in at 163,000-gross tons and housing 4,200 passengers, both will be larger than fleetmates Breakaway and Getaway. Once completed, Bliss and Escape will be the largest in Norwegian's fleet.
Escape will be built at Meyer Werft GMBH shipyard in Germany, where both Breakaway-class ships are under construction.
It also will be one of the first new builds -- along with its sister ship, Bliss
(slated March 2017) -- to feature energy efficient scrubbing technology.
While little information on Escape has been released, much is known about the first-in-class Norwegian Breakaway
, which debuted in April 2013.
Norwegian fans named Bliss and Escape in an online contest offered by the line, which provided a list of options from which to choose. Bliss and Escape came out on top.
