Measuring in at approximately 167,800 gross tons, Norwegian Encore will hold nearly 4,000 passengers and is scheduled to launch in Fall 2019.

Though no details have yet been announced, other Breakaway Plus-class ships feature a key card entry-only complex for solo travelers that includes cabins and a lounge; a water park; and the line's popular Waterfront, an alfresco dining spot that wraps around the ship, promenade style. More recent additions of this class have featured a go-kart track and laser tag arena.

Sailing out of Miami every Sunday from November 17, 2019 to April 12, 2020, Encore will sail seven-night itineraries that visit San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Tortola, British Virgin Islands. Beginning April 22, Encore will resposition to New York City from where it will offer seven-night cruises to Bermuda. 

Norwegian Encore is currently under construction at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
