What if Norwegian Breakaway’s Hull Was Designed By …

September 6, 2012 | By | 3 Comments

The first rendering of Peter Max’s Norwegian Breakaway hull has garnered mixed reviews. It’s the first cruise ship hull ever designed by a famous artist, so, naturally, we wondered: What if NCL had asked another art icon to tackle the massive project?
Not that our four suggested picks are up to the task (they’re dead), but which great artist would you have liked to seen take a stab at Breakaway’s 40,000-square-foot floating canvas? Which specific work would hang well on a hull?

      Me. I would take a bucket of white paint, a long roller, and get that hull looking perfect again: pure white. Ahhhh.

      Thomas Kinkade could have painted an awesome scene, & Lena Liu could paint a colorful, pretty hull.
      The Breakaway’s hull certainly IS colorful, though. Almost to the point of being GAUDY !. . .

      Great choice..Peter Max is the modern day master and the Breakaway is a modern day ship.
