Norwegian Encore, the latest addition to Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet, will invite travelers to the Caribbean islands with cruises now on sale for voyages beginning in the fall of 2019. Guests can now book their vacation for the inaugural 2019 season of Norwegian’s fourth and final Breakaway-Plus class ship. Norwegian Encore will cruise out of Miami every Sunday, and sail seven-day voyages to the Eastern Caribbean, beginning with its first journey on November 17, 2019, through April 12, 2020.

Norwegian Encore’s Eastern Caribbean cruises will include some of the region’s most popular destinations offering a mix of leisure activities, culture immersion, and active experiences. On this seven-day voyage, guests will first visit San Juan, Puerto Rico, where they can explore the city extensively. 

Guests can travel through the streets of Old San Juan, tour the island’s popular Bacardi Rum distillery, and visit historic sites including the Castillo San Felipe del Morro. Norwegian Encore will then make its next call into St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, and finally, guests will have the chance to see the exotic isle of Tortola, British Virgin Islands and relax on its white sand beaches.

In January, Norwegian Encore marked its first construction milestone with an official steel-cutting ceremony that took place at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Slated to be approximately 167,800 gross tons and accommodating up to 4,000 guests, Norwegian Encore will make her debut in Miami in November 2019 to coincide with the scheduled completion of the new terminal at PortMiami, which will be dedicated to Norwegian Cruise Line. 

The design that was recently revealed at the Seatrade Cruise Global Conference in March is a creation of the architects at Bermello Ajamil and Partners, and will feature modern elements including state-of-the-art lighting, indoor and outdoor waiting areas, new technology for a more efficient checking-in process, and more.
