She’s out! She’s out of the shipyard. Norwegian Cruise Line’s next mighty ship, Norwegian Encore, has emerged into daylight as she sailed out of a German factory for the first time.

Although she’s out and about, the 3,998-passenger ship will remain in the shipyard port for the final phase of her construction before her conveyance up the Ems River to the North Sea in September.
