Norwegian Cruise Line is going big on Alaska. Its newest ship will be the first cruise ship specifically designed for cruises to “America’s Last Frontier.”
The third ship in the line’s Breakaway-Plus class, will be named Norwegian Bliss and have accommodations for 4,000 guests. Special features of the ship are still to be announced, but Andy Stuart, President and CEO of Norwegian, said design elements will customized for Alaska cruising. “Alaska is one of the top destinations for our guests to explore,” he said.
Continuing Norwegian’s tradition of decorating each ship’s hull with signature art, Norwegian announced that marine life artist Wyland, has been commissioned to design the hull artwork, with his whale murals, marine life paintings.
Entering service in the spring of 2018, Norwegian Bliss itineraries will feature calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, along with scenic glacier cruising, from its home port in Seattle.
