The ship, which will be Norwegian’s fourth “Breakaway-Plus”-class ship, is slated to launch in the Caribbean in the fall of 2019.
Norwegian Encore will focus on cruises of the Eastern Caribbean, with visits to San Juan, St Thomas, USVI and Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.
Encore will cruise out of Miami every Sunday, sailing seven-day itineraries between Nov. 17, 2019 and April 12, 2020.
