Norwegian Breakaway is a cruise ship of Norwegian Cruise Line.

History

The ship, along with her sister Norwegian Getaway, were the first two ships in "Project Breakaway" ordered by Norwegian Cruise Line. The two ships were named through a public contest; Kimberly Powell submitted the name Norwegian Breakaway, which was announced on 14 September 2011.

Construction of Norwegian Breakaway began on 21 September 2011, when the first piece of steel was cut at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The ship's godmothers are the New York dancing troupe The Rockettes. She was delivered to NCL on 25 April 2013. Following the handover, Norwegian Breakaway left the port of Bremerhaven, heading for Rotterdam. Following several inaugural events, she started her transatlantic cruise from Southampton to New York City, where the naming ceremony took place. On 12 May 2013 she headed to Bermuda to start her seven-day cruises.

Norwegian Breakaway is home ported at the New York Passenger Ship Terminal in Manhattan, making seven-night cruises to Bermuda (May thru Sept) and seven-night cruises to the Bahamas & Florida (October thru April). She is the largest cruise ship homeported year-round from New York City. Beginning in late 2018, Breakaway will leave New York, traveling to New Orleans, followed by Miami in early 2019, before sailing out of the Orlando-area port, Port Canaveral, in November 2019.

She is 146,600 GT in size, and has capacity for 3,963 passengers, double occupancy. At launch, Norwegian Breakaway was the world's ninth largest cruise ship by gross tonnage.The ship has a total of 1,024 staterooms and 238 suites.

Onboard features include a restaurant, Ocean Blue, by Geoffrey Zakarian, and a comedy club, in which a Second City company performs. Peter Max designed the hull art.
