The Buzz About Norwegian Breakaway

Early reviews from travel agents and passengers indicate that the new ship from Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Breakaway, provides a terrific onboard experience. Some of the most-talked-about features include:

The Aqua Park. With five full-size water slides, this water park is thrilling for all ages. If you dare, the twin “free fall” slides will drop you and a friend nearly straight down for several stories. There are also two pools, hot tubs, and a SpongeBob-themed play area for little ones.

 The Sports Complex. This three-story playground includes lots of great activities for kids, teens and adults, including an intricate suspended ropes course, nine-hole mini golf course, basketball court, rock climbing wall and bungee trampoline.

The Staterooms. The mix of stateroom options includes unique Studio staterooms designed for solo travelers; and, elegant suites in The Haven, “ship within a ship” accommodations that offer 24-hour butler service and access to a secluded courtyard with a pool, fitness area and dining.

The Waterfront. Located on both sides of deck 8, the Waterfront features several restaurants and bars, plus an ice cream stand. Passenger can dine al fresco at tables that overlook the water.

Ocean Blue. Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian’s seafood restaurant reflects the celebrity chef’s devotion to premium-quality ingredients prepared with expert culinary techniques. Dive into Grilled Prawn Panzanella with heirloom tomatoes, Roasted Dover Sole with sauce meuniere, or Risotto of Jonah Crab with hon shimeji mushroom.

The Shows. Guests can see three sensational Broadway shows, including Rock of Ages; an adaptation of Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy; and Burn the Floor, a showcase of passionate ballroom dancing.

 There’s much more to this ship, including features with a distinctly New York feel, such as a branch of Carlo’s Bake Shop, run by Buddy Valastro of Cake Boss; three of the very same Sabrett’s hot dog carts you’ll find on the streets of Manhattan; and regular visits from the ship’s godmothers, the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes. And, there’s a fireworks show on every sailing!

 Norwegian Breakaway sails from New York year-round, currently to Bermuda, with Bahamas and Caribbean itineraries scheduled in the near future. To make plans to sail on this spectacular new ship, talk with Anita, your Cruise Holidays personal cruise expert.
