NCL Announce Names For Their Two New Project Breakaway Ships

Norwegian Cruise line has announced the names of their two new “Project Breakaway” ships after holding a naming competition in the US that attracted over 230,000 entries.

The new ships, Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway, will launch in 2012 and 2014 and will feature accommodation purposely designed for families, solo travellers and spa enthusiasts.

The names were chosen after NCL felt they reflected the flexibly and freedom of their Freestyle Cruising as Norwegian’s chief executive officer, Kevin Sheehan states;

“Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway epitomise both our Freestyle Cruising philosophy and our belief that these ships will offer a true respite, whisking guests away from everyday routine and delivering the ultimate cruise vacation.”

Onboard, both vessels will feature family Mini-Suites that will be located adjacent to the children’s facilities and a number will feature bathtubs. There will be 158 Oceanview staterooms on each ship, 42 of them will sleep up to five guests, and 449 inside staterooms that will sleep up to four guests.
For the solo traveller there will be 59 studio staterooms with access to the studio complex and exclusive studio lounge with a bar. For the spa guests their suites will be located close to the spa and fitness centre and will receive complimentary access to the Thermal Spa Suite.

Once completed the Breakaway ships will each weigh 133,017 tons and hold approximately 4000 passengers. The design has incorporated the best features of NCL’s ships with the modern touches of Norwegian Epic and the function and form of the Jewel class ships’ staterooms.
