HomeNCLNorwegian Joy Floated Out March 6, 2017 Norwegian Cruise Line’s first purpose built ship for the Chinese market has just been floated out in Germany. This is our first time seeing what she’ll look like. While she may look like a modified version of the Breakaway-plus class, there are some key differences between the Joy and the Escape. The 168,800gt ship will have the first ever racetrack at sea. You can also notice some differences in the layout of the sun deck. There are fewer pools and the waterpark area has been replaced with a large lawn area. They also seem to have removed the ropes course as well. Delivery is set for 4/27/17.
