The first of the innovative Breakaway class of ships, the Norwegian Breakaway entered service in 2013 to offer Royal Holiday Cruises members the very best in Norwegian Freestyle Cruising. As the largest ship to call New York City her home port, the Norwegian Breakaway takes Royal Holiday Cruises vacationers to Bermuda during the summer months, and then through the tropical waters of the Bahamas, Florida, and the Caribbean in the winter.
While on board the Norwegian Breakaway, Royal Holiday Cruises guests will revel in the many cutting-edge features that grace this stylish vessel. At the heart of the ship, 678 Ocean Place unites three full decks’ worth of entertainment and dining into a single, elegant space opening onto countless shop fronts, lounges, restaurants, theaters, and more. On the Waterfront, passengers can walk along a quarter-mile, open-air promenade right up close to the waves, never more than a few steps away from a selection of fine eateries, lounges, and other waterside venues where one can relax and enjoy the ocean breeze.
The ship’s Sports Complex offers guests a range of ways to get an action-packed workout, from a high-flying ropes course to the thrilling Plank. A state-of-the-art spa and fitness center offers equipment and classes for those looking to keep in shape, while five water slides provide plenty of crazy wet fun. Even the kids and teens of Royal Holiday Cruises guests have their own dedicated hangouts and staff, with plenty of activities and opportunities to make new friends in relaxing places designed just for them.
Of course, when night falls, the real party begins. Along with several signature lounge acts, jazz performances, and comedy acts, three stunning Broadway-style productions: Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor, and Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy. Bliss Ultra Lounge turns up the heat with heat-pumping dance club beats, while Norwegian’s award-winning casino offerings include slots and all the classics, including Texas Hold’em, roulette, blackjack, and more.
