The fourth ship in Norwegian's Breakaway class, Norwegian Bliss, will debut in March 2017. Bliss will be the sister ship to Norwegian Escape; coming in at 163,000-gross tons and housing 4,200 passengers, both will be larger than Breakaway and Getaway. Once completed, Bliss and Escape will be the largest in Norwegian's fleet.
Bliss 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, Escape
(slated October 2015) -- to feature energy efficient scrubbing technology.
While little information on Bliss 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.
