Norwegian Cruise Line Officially Announces Fourth Breakaway Class Ship
norwegian-breakaway-plus-ii-cruise-ship (11:30 a.m. EDT) -- Norwegian Cruise Line today announced that it will again be tapping German shipyard Meyer Werft for a fourth Breakaway Class ship, to be delivered in early 2017.

In April, during an interview with Cruise Critic, line CEO Kevin Sheehan alluded to the possibility of a fourth ship: "The second Breakaway Plus will be confirmed in a couple of months. I assume that we'll do that, even though we haven't confirmed it yet."

Norwegian's newest ship, Norwegian Breakaway, launched in April of this year. Norwegian Getaway, the second ship in the class, is set to debut in January 2014.

The third ship, known as "Breakaway Plus" until it receives an official name, is slated to arrive in October 2015. Along with newly announced Breakaway Plus II, it will be the largest in the fleet at 163,000 tons and 4,200 passengers. Combined, these two ships alone will set the line back a cool 1.4 billion euros (more than $1.8 billion).
