Norwegian Cruise Line Names New Project Breakaway Ships
(11:45 a.m. EDT) -- Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the names of its upcoming 144,017-ton, 4,000-passenger Project Breakaway new-builds: Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway. The two ships will launch in April 2013 and 2014, respectively.

After a contest run by USA Today whittled the options to five names (Breakaway, Getaway, Bliss, Escape and Journey), a team at Norwegian selected the winners.

In a statement, the line said it "felt these names best reflected the innovation of the brand ... and invoked the feeling that these ships will provide a 'break' at sea from the stress of everyday life."

Norwegian has been revealing a steady stream of information on the Breakaway duo. Last week, the line announced plans for its solo cabin-and-lounge complex. Earlier this summer, it showcased the ships' exclusive suite complex, The Haven, indicating its newly designed bathrooms would eschew the controversial bowl sinks and revealing frosted-glass shower doors that were introduced on Norwegian Epic.

Cruise Critic will be covering every step of the process, from steel cutting to launch. Follow along on our NCL Project Breakaway page.
