Yes, you read that correctly. Norwegian Cruise Line announced today in New York City that the famous Rockettes will christen the upcoming 4,000-guest Norwegian Breakaway on May 8, 2013.
“Norwegian Breakaway is being designed as New York’s ship and we want everyone to know that this is the “must-sail” cruise ship from New York in 2013 and beyond,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “I strongly believe that the Rockettes, one of the most beloved and recognizable New York icons, are the perfect choice to serve as the ship’s Godmothers. The Rockettes not only epitomize New York, they are known as strong role models and talented stars. We couldn’t be more pleased to have these renowned dancers as the Godmothers of New York’s ship, Norwegian Breakaway.”
Also announced that Norwegian Cruise Line will be the official cruise line of the Rockettes and Radio City Music Hall, along with an 11 foot cut out of Norwegian Breakaway displayed in Radio City Music Hall year-round.
The Rockettes have been entertaining crowds since 1927.
