Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that Spanish artist Eduardo Arranz-Bravo will create the hull artwork for the fourth and final ship of its Breakaway-Plus class, Norwegian Encore, debuting in Miami in November 2019.
A representation of his modern and abstract style, the ship’s hull will showcase a variety of color inspired by Arranz-Bravo’s life by the sea in Barcelona and pay tribute to the guest experience that the Norwegian brand provides. Arranz-Bravo, whose work is showcased throughout the world, has received numerous awards and accolades and was one of three artists chosen to represent the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.
Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, played a key role in the selection of Arranz-Bravo as the hull artist for Norwegian Encore, having been inspired by his work. According to the cruise line, Del Rio’s passion for the arts has influenced Norwegian’s on-board experience, most recently with the multi-million-dollar art collection curated for Norwegian Bliss.
At approximately 167,800 gross tons and accommodating up to 4,000 guests, Norwegian Encore will complete the Breakaway-Plus class. She is currently being built at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany. Following her unveiling, she will cruise out of Miami every Sunday and sail seven-day voyages to the Eastern Caribbean, beginning with her first journey on November 17, 2019 through April 12, 2020.
