Project Breakaway for Norwegian Cruise Lines

Date Posted: 27 Jun 2011
Category:

Norwegian Cruise Lines have begun to announce plans for their next generation of ships, Project Breakaway. The two 144,017 tonne Project Breakaway ships will carry 4,000 passengers with NCL's tag line for the new class of ships being: "Project Breakaway ships represent an opportunity for guests to 'break away' from the routine of work, school, and daily life, and find respite at sea."

With their latest cruise liner, the Norwegian Epic, being a one off, the cruise line have enlisted the help of a top design agency Priestmangoode from London, working in conjunction with Tillberg Design of Sweden to design the new staterooms for Project Breakaway. The idea being to take combine the most popular aspects from the Norwegian Jewel along with some the Epic's modern innovations.

Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s chief executive officer, says, "The overall design theme for Project Breakaway’s staterooms is ‘modern boutique hotel meets the sea.’ We strongly considered the overall needs of our guests when designing these staterooms and wanted them to be greeted with an ambiance that is warm and inviting, and has a very contemporary feel with clean, modern lines."

"We also want to maximise the use of space within the staterooms, so our guests are as comfortable as possible and storage space is well planned throughout. Ultimately, our goal is to achieve a good balance of form and function – well designed, beautiful, comfortable and sensible living space".

The new ships will each boast 1,024 balcony staterooms and 238 mini-suites. The cabins will be decked out with 26-inch flat screen TVs, LED lighting, King Sized beds that can be separated, a chestnut leather headboard and rich panelling with warm tones and accent colours.

With NCL announcing these new ships for 2013 and 2014, Royal Caribbean announcing Project Sunshine and P&O Cruises and Princess Cruises both having new ships on order, there will be some fantastically new, innovative and very different ships hitting the seas over the next year or so.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
