This Thursday Norwegian Cruise Line’s biggest ship to date, Norwegian Escape will set sail on her highly anticipated maiden voyage. Sailing to her homeport of Miami from Southampton on an 11 night transatlantic cruise. She will be christened in Miami by named godfather and international music sensation Armando Christian Perez, aka Pitbull.

After just 17 months of construction, Norwegian Escape was received by Norwegian Cruise Line from the German based Meyer Werft shipyard last week. Inaugural festivities include time in Hamburg and a two night stopover in Southampton before sailing home to Miami.

Norwegian Escape is the first ship introducing Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway Plus Class. This new class of ships are around 10% bigger than NCL’s Breakaway Class and feature ground breaking technologies, highly creative facilities and a backdrop of cool, contemporary designs.

Norwegian Cruise Line President and COO Andy Stuart said “Norwegian Escape’s arrival marks a true evolution for our brand—we’ve capitalized on the best of our Breakaway Class ships and taken freedom and flexibility to the next level with this incredible new ship”

Guests sailing onboard Norwegian Escape will enjoy top class entertainment, from the Broadway shows After Midnight and Million Dollar Quartet to the outstanding onboard venues keeping the party pumping. Other notable facilities and onboard activities include an impressive three storey ropes course, innovative Aqua Park with slides; and the luxurious private Haven for a calm escape.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
