Norwegian Cruise Line announced today that thanks to its Facebook fans around the globe, the names of the line’s two new Breakaway Plus-class ships are Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Bliss. These names are the two that received the highest number of votes, out of the line’s top ten name prospects, in the “Norwegians Name Their Ships” contest, which asked fans in five countries to help select the names for the line’s two new Breakaway Plus vessels.

The contest, which ran from September 10 through September 24, 2013, garnered more than 100.000 votes from Norwegian fans located in five different countries, including the United States, Canada (excluding Quebec), Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom.

“The response to our ‘Norwegians Name Their Ships’ contest was overwhelming,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s President and CEO. “It reaffirms that we have a very engaged and passionate community of Norwegians and we are thrilled with the names they have selected for our two new Breakaway Plus-class ships. Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Bliss are two names that truly characterize our brand, Freestyle Cruising®, and the experience guests will have on board these fantastic new vessels.”

Norwegian’s new Breakaway Plus ships will be the largest in the line’s fleet at approximately 163.000 gross tons and 4.200 passenger berths each and will be similar in design and innovation to the line’s current Breakaway-class, the first of which, Norwegian Breakaway, launched in New York in early May and the second of which, Norwegian Getaway, will launch in January and arrive in her homeport of Miami in February.
