There are just 64 more days to go until Norwegian Cruise Line’s, Norwegian Breakaway, officially joins the fleet and this morning her float-out took place at roughly 7am at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.
The 145,000 gt cruise ship has a length overall of 324 m, and is 39.70 n wide, taking that into consideration can you believe she has taken just 17 months to construct!
So what can her guests expect?
She will feature a three deck high indoor complex of restaurants, bars, entertainment and gaming which will be named 678 Ocean Place. It will spread out across decks six, seven and eight. 678 Ocean Place will also lead out into the Waterfront which will be located on deck 8. The Waterfront will consist of outdoor dining and lounge options including an Italian restaurant, seafood restaurant, Steakhouse, cocktail bar and a beer and whiskey bar.
The outdoor area will also play host to a gelato bar which is a first for Norwegian Cruise Line. She will also feature areas like that of her sister ship Norwegian Epic including Bliss Ultra Lounge and O’Sheehan’s Neighbourhood Bar and Grill.
Norwegian Breakaway is currently berthed at the Meyer Werft yard pier. She will remain here for the next few days whilst the remaining tests, trials and other works are carried out. The coming days will also see her first crew members arrive as they settle into their cabins and familiarize themselves with this massive vessel.
She is due to leave the shipyard heading down the Ems River towards the North Sea in early March, during this time she will prove her sea worthiness,
