You can follow the ship's launch on our Breakaway page, complete with live Twitter feed and photo slideshow. Stay tuned for a "First Impressions" blog, lots more photos and six short videos offering a sneak peek inside the ship's dining options, cabins, activities, entertainment and more.
The 146,600-ton, 4,028-passenger Norwegian Breakaway is the first of two sister ships and the largest ship ever to homeport in New York City. It will feature a quarter-mile-long "boardwalk" dotted new dining options and lounges, a three-deck atrium spanning the length of the ship and a massive water park with the first-ever free fall slide at sea. Additional highlights include a new salt spa and "Black Light Spinning." Breakaway will be officially christened by the Rockettes on May 8.
