The excitement mounts as I am preparing for the launch of Norwegian Cruise Lines latest ship tomorrow, Norwegian Breakaway, in Southampton. NCL’s latest ship promises to deliver many industry firsts including The Waterfront, a quarter-mile oceanfront promenade. With it’s shops and dining and stunning view of the Caribbean islands, I am sure it will prove a popular addition with the guests. Although the weather forecast for Southampton tomorrow is only 13 degrees, I will make sure to check out the Waterfront and all the outdoor facilities this new ship has to offer.
As far as her statistics read, Norwegian Breakaway boasts a guest capacity of 4,028, which explains the need for 28 dining choices, 22 bars and lounges, 3-storey sports complex featuring ropes course, mini golf and more. An Aqua Park with 2 swimming pools, 1 kids’ pool, 5 water slides and 6 hot tubs.
Breakaway’s inaugural sailing is on Tuesday 30th April 2013 as she leaves Southampton for her home port of New York. From there she will be sailing 12 night Southern Caribbean itineraries including Puerto Rico, St Thomas, St Maarten, St Lucia, Barbados and St Kitts,7 night Bermuda and 7 night Bahamas & Florida.
I’m off to pack my overnight bag and paint my nails. I promise to return on Tuesday with great photos of all the fantastic facilities on board.
