MV ‘Norwegian Breakaway’ flies the Bahamian flag but she’s home-ported at New York City and the New York City Passenger Ship Terminal in Manhattan. Typically the vessel departs New York every Sunday for seven-day cruises to Bermuda, and thus the evocative name. At almost 326 meter length (1,069 ft) and eighteen decks, she’s presently the ninth largest cruiseship in the world. Until this year, MV ‘Norwegian Breakaway’ and her sistership MV ‘Norwegian Getaway’ (of the ‘Breakaway Class’), were the biggest vessels in the Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet.
At the time of her delivery, it was posted: “Designed as “New York’s” ship, “NORWEGIAN BREAKAWAY will bring the best of NYC to sea when she arrives to her year-round homeport in early May 2013, offering the high-caliber dining and entertainment options that New York is known for worldwide. To date, the company has revealed the ship’s groundbreaking design, including an open-air boardwalk, The Waterfront, and 678 Ocean Place; a wide range of indoor and outdoor venues on three dynamic decks that will create a whole new complex at sea that enhances guests’ connection with the ocean. Norwegian Breakaway’s entertainment will include three Broadway shows: five-time Tony nominated ROCK OF AGES; the dance sensation BURN THE FLOOR; and CIRQUE DREAMS & DINNER JUNGLE FANTASY. The famed comedy troupe The Second City, Howl at the Moon dueling pianos, and New York’s own Slam Allen will perform on the vessel. Norwegian Breakaway will also feature an exciting fireworks show on every cruise that will dazzle guests on the second to last night at sea each week, and will be the grand finale of a decadent 1980s-themed deck party.”
