Norwegian Cruise Line reached an agreement today with Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany to build a third new cruise ship. The upcoming vessel will be 163,000-tons and debut October 2015, Norwegian’s largest ship yet.

“Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway have garnered significant attention in the marketplace with their innovative design, rich stateroom mix and world-class amenities.  Building on that momentum, along with MEYER WERFT’s expertise and efficiency in the design and construction process, we are extending the excitement and anticipation with a new, larger edition Breakaway Plus class ship to further distinguish the Norwegian brand,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer.

The project is named “Breakaway Plus.” Other newbuilds Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway will debut in 2013 and 2014.
