Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest and most innovative ship sailed into Singapore waters, the first port of call in Asia for the brand new ship after leaving the shipyard in Germany where she was completed in April 2017.
Norwegian Joy, one of the largest cruise ships ever built, is on her way to Hong Kong and then Shanghai, which together with Tianjin near Beijing will be her homeports when she commences operations at the end of June.
“The launch of the Norwegian Joy cruise ship reiterates our strong commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, and is designed to be appealing to Asian guests,’ said Steve Odell, Senior Vice President and Managing Director Asia Pacific of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH), which operates Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas brands.
