Dynamic Ship Hull Art

Extraordinary Artwork

Most cruise ships relegate their artwork to the inside. Norwegian Cruise Line takes art one-step further by featuring dynamic images on the hull of their vessels.

 Norwegian Dawn

The artwork, depicting Norwegian Dawn's itinerary, runs on both sides of the hull with the starboard side featuring dolphins playing in Technicolor waves reflecting the ship's Caribbean itinerary from the port of Miami. The port side featured New York City's leading lady, the Statue of Liberty, signifying the ship's Bahamas and Florida itinerary from the port of New York.

Norwegian Pearl’s 
decorative hull artwork is splashed along both sides of the hull featuring dramatic strands of colorful pearls and streamers running from the bow of the ship almost to the middle of the ship.

Pearls naturally come in a wide variety of colors, ranging from creams and roses to greens and golds. The hues on Norwegian Pearl’s hull  showcase a colorful palate including green, plum, cranberry and sapphire blue.

Norwegian Breakaway

Norwegian Breakaway’s signature hull artwork designed by pop icon and America’s most popular living artist, Peter Max, covers approximately 40,000 square feet of the hull.

This was the first time Norwegian Cruise Line  commissioned a well-known artist to paint the hull artwork on one of their ships.

Norwegian Epic

Norwegian Epic’s hull artwork, designed by the company’s internal marketing team, was painted on both sides with free form rolling waves of varying sizes that run through a modern color spectrum of lime, aqua, red, and purple and are dotted by silver circles.

The hull design was a departure from the rest of the line’s signature hull artwork which typically is inspired by the ship’s name or the destination the ship sails from. Instead, the hull artwork on Norwegian Epic took on the characteristics of the ship’s interior features including controversial New Wave staterooms.
