Norwegian Breakaway

A ship of ground-making design with a host of mouth-watering features

Norwegian Cruise Line's groundbreaking ship, the 4,000 passenger Norwegian Breakaway, arrived in her year-round homeport of New York City in early May 2013 to begin weekly summer seven-night cruises to Bermuda and winter cruisers to Bahamas & Florida and the Southern Caribbean.

The ship is certainly not the faint-hearted, with action-packed thrills that literally take your breath away, or for early birds as an amazing entertainment line-up keeps you buzzing all night long.

Innovative features include The Waterfront and 678 Ocean Place - a wide range of indoor and outdoor venues on three dynamic decks that creates a whole new complex at sea that enhances guests’ connection with the ocean.

Entertainment includes three Broadway shows: five-time Tony nominated Rock of Ages; the dance sensation Burn the Floor ; and Cirque Dreams and Dinner Jungle Fantasy.

There are 27 different dining options - the sushi bar is exceptional - and Celebrity Chef and Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian made his debut at sea with Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian. And for a cool drink, you have to viusiut the Ice Bar, unique to some Norwegian Cruise Line ships.

The ship also features a rich mix of stateroom options including The Haven by Norwegian, comprised of 42 Suites at the top of the ship, and 22 additional Suites located throughout the ship; the innovative Studios, designed and priced for solo travellers; the re-introduction of Oceanview staterooms; Inside staterooms, Balcony and Mini-Suites; along with Spa Balcony, Mini-Suites and Suites in close proximity to the spa.
