- Business & Finance
After eighteen months spent at Meyer Werft’s covered building dock II, the 164,600-gt cruise ship Norwegian Escape is now only three days away from its scheduled float out.
The float-out of the ship, which is built for the U.S. cruise operator Norwegian Cruise Line, will commence around 8.30 am local time, August 15.
Following the float-out and more tests to be carried out in the harbor, the ship will be berthed alongside the yard’s outfitting pier.
The Norwegian Escape’s conveyance down the river Ems towards the North Sea, where she will prove her seaworthiness, is scheduled for mid-September 2015.
The 164,600 gt cruise ship has a length overall of 325,9 m and is 41.40 m wide.
