The newest upcoming ship from Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Escape, passed another construction milestone when it unveiled its new hull art from marine wildlife artist Guy Harvey.
Currently being built in Meyer Werft in Germany, Norwegian Escape will debut this November in Miami.
Spanning more than 1,000 feet in length from bow to stern, the custom-designed artwork features a scene of marine wildlife which blends two underwater seas seamlessly together. Featuring Harvey’s signature sailfish, the design also showcases key Caribbean sea life including sting rays, sea turtles, whale sharks and a variety of tropical fish.
The process of creating the artwork begins with a laser that projects the design onto the hull. A team then outlines the art onto the curved hull, pencilling in the lines and then taping the edges in preparation for applying the paint by hand.
Norwegian Escape will sail weekly seven-day cruises from her year-round homeport of Miami to the Eastern Caribbean beginning on November 14, 2015.
