Cruise lines love to promote the first keel laying of a new ship, but what does a keel really look like?
Norwegian Cruise Line has captured the keel laying of its first Breakaway Plus cruise ship at a German shipyard this month.
The first of 86 blocks was lifted into the covered building dock, officially marking the start of the shipâ€™s construction.
Named Norwegian Escape, the ship will be the largest vessel in the lineâ€™s fleet when she launches in October next year.
