Norwegian Encore’s Iconic Hull Art Has Just Been Revealed (And It’s Surprisingly Spanish)

Norwegian Cruise Line has just revealed that an award-winning Spanish artist, Eduardo Arranz-Bravo, has created the hull artwork for Norwegian Encore.

It will be the fourth and final ship of the line’s Breakaway-Plus class when it debuts in Miami in November 2019.

The vessel’s hull will pay tribute to the vibrant experience all guests famously experience onboard the brand.

This will be done through a labyrinth of colour inspired by Arranz-Bravo’s life by the sea in Barcelona aswell as a representation of his modern and abstract style.


“Norwegian Cruise Line is a dynamic, pioneering company known for its innovative experiences and breathtaking collection of beautifully designed ships,” said Arranz-Bravo.

“I am honored to not only bring that vibrancy to life even more on Norwegian Encore but also showcase my love for the ocean and my hometown of Barcelona.”

Arranz-Bravo is recognized for his inventive and humanistic approach to abstract art and is showcased throughout the world. He is known for portraying a constant evolution that some refer to as futuristic.

He is held at high regard and has received several awards aswell as being chosen as one of the three artists to represent the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.

“Eduardo’s design will be a perfect complement to the collection of hull artwork within our fleet and is a testament to the dynamic experience our guests will have on board,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.

We are proud to welcome him to our Norwegian Cruise Line family.”

President and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, Frank Del Rio, played a key role in selecting Arranz-Bravo as the hull artist for Norwegian Encore, having been inspired by his work for many years.

Del Rio’s passion for the arts has helped elevate Norwegian’s on-board experience, most recently with the multi-million-dollar art collection curated for Norwegian Bliss.


“We are well-known for our iconic hull designs and know that Arranz-Bravo’s lively design will complement the colorful destinations in the Caribbean that Norwegian Encore will visit when she debuts next year,” said Del Rio.

The 4,000-guest ship will be Norwegian Cruise Line’s seventeeth addition to the fleet and will actually complete the Breakaway-Plus class, the most successful class in the line’s history.

She is currently being built at Meyer Werft, in Papenburg, Germany and following her unveiling, she will cruise out of Miami every Sunday and sail seven-day voyages to the Eastern Caribbean.

This will begin with her first journey on November 17th 2019 through April 12th 2020.

NCL fans can expect more details on the ship’s design, accommodations, dining and onboard offerings in the coming months.
