Another Norwegian Cruise Line ship is back in service.
Norwegian Breakaway set sail from Manhattan on Sunday, marking the cruise line’s sixth vessel to resume cruises after the industry pause that began in early 2020.
Breakaway is now on a seven-night voyage to Bermuda, where she will spend an overnight at the country’s main cruise port: King’s Wharf. The sailing will also include four sea days.
The vessel is scheduled to continue the weeklong Bermuda cruises from New York City through October 31.
After her short Bermuda season, Norwegian Breakaway will move down to Louisiana to resume sailings from New Orleans on a 14-night Panama Canal repositioning cruise. The vessel will arrive there on November 21, and begin a winter season of seven-night cruises to the western Caribbean with calls in Cozumel, Roatán, Costa Maya, and Norwegian’s private destination in Belize — Harvest Caye.
Amenities aboard Norwegian Breakaway include Free Fall — the fastest drop waterslide at sea, a ropes course with The Plank that extends over the side of the ship, a rock climbing wall, a spa, a casino, and kids’ clubs.
Bars and lounges include Headliners Comedy Club, Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar, Bliss Ultra Lounge, and Starbucks. Restaurants include the 24 hrs. a day O’Sheehan’s Bar & Grill, Shanghai’s Noodle Bar, Cagney’s Steakhouse, La Cucina Italian restaurant, Teppanyaki, Le Bistro French restaurant, and the Brazilian-style steakhouse Moderno Churrascaria.
Norwegian Cruise Line originally resumed service this year when Norwegian Jade set sail from Piraeus, Greece in July. In August, Norwegian Encore set sail from Seattle to Alaska and Norwegian Gem resumed voyages from Miami.
This month, Norwegian Epic resumed sailings from Barcelona and Norwegian Getaway launched Greek Isles cruises from Rome.
On October 24, Norwegian Bliss is scheduled to become Norwegian’s seventh ship back in passenger operations, as she sets sail from Los Angeles for the Mexican Riviera.
