Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed their latest iconic hull art design by Spanish artist Eduardo Arranz-Bravo.
The cruise line’s new ship Norwegian Encore will debut in November 2019 sporting the colourful design by award-winning artist Eduardo Arranz-Bravo.
Arranz-Bravo said he aimed to bring the vibrancy of Norwegian Cruise Lines to life in his work. Finding inspiration in his hometown of Barcelona, the design expresses his love for the ocean and his life by the sea in his famed modern and abstracted style.
Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings was key in selecting the Arranz-Bravo, having been an aficionado of his work for many years. He said “We are well-known for our iconic hull designs and know that Arranz-Bravo’s lively design will complement the colorful destinations in the Caribbean that Norwegian Encore will visit when she debuts next year.”
Arranz-Bravo is highly-regarded who has work showcased around the globe. He has won countless awards and is known for being one of the artists representing the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.
Norwegian Encore will be the fourth and final ship in the Breakaway-Plus class, joining Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Joy and Norwegian Bliss that debuted this year. Weighing in at 167,800 gross tons, she’ll carry around 4,000 guests, 900 less than Bliss. The ship is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, Encore and is scheduled to sail seven-day Eastern Caribbean voyages from Miami every Sunday. Her first sailing is set to be November 17, 2019.
