On March 5,Norwegian Gem‘s main superstructure was completed as block numbers 62 and 63, weighing 600 tons, were lowered onto the ship’s aft at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, where the ship is currently under construction. Once this section is welded to the ship’s hull, the final outfitting work in the accommodations area will begin.
On Thursday, March 8, the ship will be moved backwards in the dock so that the final block at the ship’s nose and funnel can be installed. With these final blocks in place, Norwegian Gem, NCL‘s fourth Jewel-class ship, will have its complete form.
Built specifically for Freestyle Cruising, Norwegian Gem is designed to provide guests the most customizable experience at sea.
