Norwegian Breakaway From The Norm

Date Posted: 12 Jan 2012

Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that their forthcoming über cruise liner, Norwegian Breakaway, will be based in New York for her inaugural season in 2013 — breaking away from the norm of basing new ships in Fort Lauderdale.

The NCL have broken with a cruise industry tradition by opting to base the Norwegian Breakaway in New York, they haven't gone completely against the grain, as their newest ship will be offering cruises to the Bahamas, Florida and the Caribbean. The inaugural season will see the ship sailing from New York to Bermuda on a series of seven night cruises, before embarking on 25 seven night cruises to the Bahamas and Florida.

Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Chief Executive Officer, said: "Norwegian Breakaway is one of the most highly anticipated new ships and has seen great demand for her summer sailings to Bermuda. For her winter inaugural season, Norwegian Breakaway will offer guests a chance to experience the tropics of the Caribbean and the Bahamas & Florida from the fascinating metropolis, New York. We are also excited to announce that the ship will stop at our newly enhanced private island, Great Stirrup Cay, offering an exclusive beach experience."

Norwegian Breakaway’s cruises to the Bahamas & Florida will include visit to Nassau and NCL's private island — Great Stirrup Cay — in the Bahamas, Orlando and Florida. There will also be a couple of 12 night Southern Caribbean cruises, that will take in San Juan (Puerto Rico), St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands), Philipsburg (St. Maarten), Castries (St. Lucia), Bridgetown (Barbados), and Basseterre (St. Kitts).

NCL Breakaway will be the cruise line's most modern ship and has been touted to include the most popular venues and innovations from both the Jewel Class ships and the Norwegian Epic, along with boasting a whole host of new Breakaway class signatures, which are yet to be announced.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
