Norwegian Cruise Line announced today its newest ship, Norwegian Escape, will homeport year-round at PortMiami and sail an Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Norwegian Cruise Line also announced Guy Harvey will be the artist designing Norwegian Escape’s hull artwork.
“The larger-than-life paintings of popular, but endangered, marine creatures in the Caribbean will heighten public awareness about marine life,” Harvey says. “The large scale mural demonstrates the concern and respect that Norwegian and I have for the marine environment through which this ship will travel over the years.”
Harvey revealed his custom design for Norwegian Escape’s hull, which features an underwater scene of marine wildlife, this morning at a Cruise Shipping Miami event.
“Guy Harvey is the perfect artist to design Norwegian Escape’s hull artwork because he is so passionate about the sea and his marine artwork is so life-like and well recognized,” says Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s CEO.
Norwegian Escape will join Norwegian’s fleet on October 2015 and will begin its voyages on Nov. 14, 2015 offering 7-day Eastern Caribbean sailings from Miami to Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas. The 4,200-passenger ship, will offer all the features found on the Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway, plus new spaces and interactive experiences that have not yet been announced.
The Norwegian Escape will open for group bookings on March 19, for Latitudes Rewards Members on March 25 and to the general public on March 26.
