Norwegian Joy is a cruise ship for Norwegian Cruise Line, which entered service in April 2017. She was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg in Germany. Base ports are Shanghai and Tianjin. The ship exclusively serves Japanese ports.

The Norwegian Joy is unusual in that it was given a godfather, Chinese singer Wang Leehom, rather than a godmother. The vessel was christened June 27, 2017. It had been reported that she would visit Dubai on her re-positioning cruise to China. Other ports of call on her maiden cruise were unknown. The keel was laid on 5 April 2016. A first section was launched on 4 June 2016. A second section was launched on 19 August 2016.

Being a component of Norwegian’s Breakaway Plus class, Norwegian Joy is a sister ship to the Norwegian Escape, which was completed in October 2015. The ship was originally going to be named the Norwegian Bliss. The original name for the ship was selected through an online contest hosted by Norwegian Cruise line. The construction of the Norwegian Joy started on 16 September 2015.

It was announced on 12 October 2015, that the ship would be built with a different name, be reintroduced and redesigned specifically for the Chinese market. On 30 March 2016, the ships new name, Norwegian Joy, and the new home ports of Shanghai & Tianjin (Beijing) were announced. In October 2016, construction of a new ship was announced, taking over the Norwegian Bliss name and will be delivered in 2018.
