Norwegian Encore is a Breakaway Plus-class cruise ship operated by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL). She is the fourth Breakaway Plus-class ship in the fleet, following sister ships Norwegian Bliss, Norwegian Escape, and Norwegian Joy, and debuted in November 2019.

On 14 July 2014, NCL announced that it had reached an agreement with Meyer Werft for a €1.6 billion order of two new Breakaway Plus-class ships, scheduled for delivery in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Each ship was initially estimated to be approximately 164,600 GT and have 4,200 passenger berths.

In February 2017, it was announced that the ship scheduled for delivery in 2019 would be designed for the Chinese market, much like her sister ship, Norwegian Joy. However, in January 2018, it was later announced that the ship would instead be designed for the Western market like her other sister ship, Norwegian Bliss.

Construction started with the ship’s steel cutting on 31 January 2018, the day her name was also announced as Norwegian Encore. Her keel-laying ceremony was performed on 28 November 2018, accompanied by a performance from the musical Kinky Boots.

Norwegian Encore‘s float-out was on 17 August 2019 and the ship was towed from the building dock to receive her funnel cladding and further outfitting. The ship began her scheduled conveyance along the Ems towards the Eemshaven for her sea trials on 30 September 2019 and completed it on 1 October.

Norwegian Encore was delivered to NCL on 30 October 2019 in Bremerhaven. The ship was the 14th and last ship that Meyer Werft has built for NCL. Andy Stuart, then-president and CEO of NCL, announced on The Kelly Clarkson Show on 10 September 2019 that Kelly Clarkson would be the godmother to Norwegian Encore. Clarkson performed at the christening ceremony and officially named the vessel on 21 November 2019 in Miami prior to the ship’s debut in the Caribbean on 24 November.
