Her keel-laying ceremony took place on November 28, 2018.

At the beginning of 2019, the ship looked like this.

In just a couple of months, she has become beautiful.

BTW, Norwegian Encore’s hull art by Spanish artist Eduardo Arranz-Bravo was inspired by his hometown Barcelona and by his love for the ocean.
