Meyer Werft of Germany says that 'Norwegian Encore' is scheduled to leave the covered building dock II at the Papenburg shipyard on 17 August.

The 169,145 grt cruise ship is 333.46m in length and 41.4m in width, with capacity for 4,004 passengers. It is being built for US-based cruise shipping company Norwegian Cruise Line. Once Norwegian Encore has left the dock, scheduled for 8am, it will berth at the shipyard's out-fitting pier to be fitted with its funnel cladding. The ship will then remain in the yard for further out-fitting work and on-board trials until its passage through the river Ems up to the North Sea, which is expected to take place end of September. These timings are subject to change according to weather conditions.

For Norwegian Encore to be able to berth at the out-fitting pier, the floating section (engine room unit) of P&O’s Iona that is currently moored here will have to be moved to another berth. Once Norwegian Encore has left the dock, the floating part for Iona, which is due for completion in spring 2020, will be manoeuvred back into the free covered building dock II for further construction work.
