Leehom is known for his unique blend of pop, rock, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, classical as well traditional Chinese. He has also worked with some of the greats in music like Tony Bennett, Avicii and Usher.

The Norwegian Joy is the second Breakaway Plus class ship. She is built specifically for the Chinese market and will sail from Shanghai and Beijing all year round.

There’s a thrilling two level go kart track where passengers can race each other and exciting hovercraft bumper cars. Play immersive virtual reality games or laser tag, or slide down huge multi storey waterslides. For something more relaxing, a tranquil park on the top deck is the spot for tai chi, yoga or meditation. And the huge luxury shopping venue will have great duty free bargains and renowned global luxury brands in fashion, jewellery and electronics.

Onboard technology is the the most impressive of any Norwegian ship. Many interior cabins feature virtual balconies and the bow to stern Wi-Fi is the fastest in the fleet.
