Meyer Werft has cut the first piece of steel for Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Bliss.
Andy Stuart, president of Norwegian Cruise Line, pushed the button of the plasma torch at the yard’s laser centre to cut a silhouette of the new ship from the steel plate. Stuart was joined by the line’s senior vice president Christer Karlsson, as well as Meyer Werft’s managing directors Bernard Meyer and Lambert Kruse, and the yard’s project manager Stephan Schmees.
“We are very happy to build these new class of ships for Norwegian Cruise Line and to continue our long-standing relationship,” said Meyer.
Due to debut in spring 2017, the 165,600gt Norwegian Bliss will accommodate around 4,000 passengers and operate at a speed of 23 knots.
