Norwegian Joy is a cruise ship for Norwegian Cruise Line, which entered service in April 2017. She was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany.

Being a ship of Norwegian's Breakaway Plus class, Norwegian Joy is a sister ship to the Norwegian Escape, which was completed in October 2015. The ship was originally going to be named the Norwegian Bliss. The original name for the ship was selected through an online contest hosted by Norwegian Cruise line. The construction of the Norwegian Joy started on 16 September 2015.

It was announced on 12 October 2015, that the ship would be built with a different name, be reintroduced and redesigned specifically for the Chinese market. On 30 March 2016, the ship's new name, Norwegian Joy, and the new home ports of Shanghai & Tianjin (Beijing) were announced. In October 2016, construction of a new ship was announced, taking over the Norwegian Bliss name and will be delivered in 2018.

The Joy is unusual in that it was given a godfather, Chinese singer Wang Leehom, rather than a godmother. The vessel was christened June 27, 2017.

It was reported that she would visit Dubai on her re-positioning cruise to China. The keel was laid on 5 April 2016. A first section was launched on 4 June 2016. A second section was launched on 19 August 2016.

On 19 July 2018 Norwegian announced plans to move the Norwegian Joy from China to the U.S. The company plans to utilize the ship for cruises to Alaska, Mexico and the Panama Canal, depending on the season. Norwegian Joy will undergo ~$50M worth of upgrades to bring her designs and offerings to be virtually identical to those of sister ship Norwegian Bliss.

Norwegian Joy has five main engines with total output power of 102,900 hp. The vessel has two MAN B&W 14V48/60CR, each with power of 22,520 hp and three MAN B&W 12V48/60CR, each with power of 19,300 hp. The propulsion system is two ABB Azipod XO units with total power of 40 MW, which allows service speed of 22.5 kts, while the maximum speed during trials exceeds 25.0 kts. The ship also has an air lubrication system installed, the Silverstream® System, which creates a carpet of tiny air bubbles along the hull to reduce drag.
