Norwegian Cruise Lines added two new ships to their fleet in 2013 and 2014, the Norwegian Breakaway and sister ship the Norwegian Getaway respectivly. The Norwegian Breakaway launched in April 2013.
The two new ships have been designed to incorporate the innovations of the Norwegian Epic, their largest ship, along with the form and function of their popular Jewel class ships. The 144,017 tonne ship carries approximately 4,000 passengers and offers a vast array of contemporary, comfortable staterooms.
One of the most exciting new innovations on the Norwegian Breakaway is The Haven. The Haven was first seen onboard the Norwegian Epic and offers a world of luxury and privacy, usually found on smaller ships, onboard this, huge, new ship — in essence it is like a ship within a ship. The Haven is only available to guests booking into the luxury Haven suites and boasts exquisite décor and personalised service, with a 24 hour butler service offered by certified butlers from the International Institutes of Modern Butlers. The private pool has its own valet service, there will be white tablecloth in-suite dining available and exclusive access to The Haven Courtyard with private pool, sundeck, hot tub and fitness area.
From the Freestyle dining made famous throughout the fleet to the elegant, private dining of the Haven, the Norwegian Breakaway offers a superb selection of cuisine. From heading to the main dining rooms, to enjoy a sumptuous three course meal, to the selection of alternate dining options, including a buffet and several of the cruise line's most popular venues from the Norwegian Epic and Jewel Class ships.
NCL are renowned for their entertainment, whether it be performances of the Blue Man group, enjoying a perfectly made Martini or heading feet first down the waterslide. With the most popular innovations, acts and venues from the current fleet, mixed in with a few surprises, the Norwegian Breakaway has more than enough to keep the whole family entertained at sea. There is a varied choice of lounge bars and show venues, a signature nightclub and of course, a casino.
