Norwegian Cruise Line will introduce the first purpose-built ship customised for the Chinese cruise market in spring 2017.

Currently under construction, the new 4,200 guest ship – the second of Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway Plus class – is designed specifically for the China market with accommodation, cuisine and onboard experiences that cater to the unique holiday preferences of Chinese guests.

Chinese guests will indulge in a resort-style vacation experience, with the freedom and flexibility to spend time enjoying world-class entertainment, fine Mandarin, Cantonese and Continental dining, duty-free luxury shopping and participating in incredible first-at-sea onboard activities.

Norwegian’s announcement follows news that Princess Cruises’ new ship Majestic Princess will be homeported in Shanghai, China year-round beginning in summer 2017.

Norwegian will take delivery of the line’s first Breakaway Plus class ship, Norwegian Escape, on 22 October.

Two additional ships in this class are on order for delivery in 2018 and 2019.
