OVERVIEW

Norwegian Breakaway is the fourth ship in a new
generation of cruise ships.  Like fleetmate
Norwegian Epic
and Royal Caribbean's
Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the
Seas, Breakaway abandons the traditional cruising model
in favor of a new paradigm.  It is one in which the cruise
experience no longer revolves around the main dining room
and the main theater.  Instead, the guest has quality options
not only with regard to dining but also as to entertainment.

Breakaway owes much to Norwegian Epic.  She
incorporates many of the innovations pioneered on that ship
such as studio cabins for solo travelers, the Haven luxury
ship-within-a-ship area, and perhaps most importantly, the
concept that guests should have a number of high quality
entertainment offerings each night.

Yet, she is not a mere clone of Epic.  Restaurants, bars and
entertainment venues open onto her outdoor promenade
deck, the Waterfront, giving the ship a much more open
feel.  Her Ocean Blue restaurants developed with celebrity
chef Geoffrey Zakarian raise specialty dining to a new
level.  For the more adventurous traveler, she has an
enhanced sports complex.

She is also different in appearance.  Breakaway is more
streamlined than her immediate predecessor.

In addition, Breakaway is the first ship to have been signed
by a world-famous artist.  Peter Max designed the bold
mural on Breakaway's hull and Max's signature appears in
bold letters on both sides of Breakaway's bow.

In fact, you see well-recognized names throughout
Breakaway.  There are reminders that the ship's
godmothers were The Rockettes of Radio City Music Hall
fame.  The shows in the main theater, Rock of Ages and
Burn the Floor, have Broadway reputations.  Cirque
Dreams and Second City established their pedigrees long
before going to sea.  Breakaway's cake shop was
developed by master baker Buddy Valastro of the
television series “Cake Boss.”  The list goes on but the
point is that Norwegian has invested in recognized quality.

Along the same lines, Norwegian Breakaway was built by
Meyer Werft, a shipyard with a reputation for quality.

Breakaway was designed with the
New York market in
mind.  Norwegian was the first cruise line to base a ship
year round in New York and has managed to succeed in
this market while several other cruise lines have tried and
failed.  Reflecting the fact that the ship was intended to be
part of this community, Breakaway has a New York theme.  
Indeed, Peter Max's mural contains the Statue of Liberty
and images of the Manhattan skyline. And reflecting the
line's commitment to New York, Pier 88 at the Manhattan
Cruise Terminal was upgraded to accommodate
Breakaway.

Breakaway's itinerary calls for her to sail from New York
to
Bermuda during the warmer months and to the Bahamas
(
Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay) and the Caribbean when
the weather turns colder.
