    Cruise Line Taps Rockettes For New York Ship


    Norwegian Cruise Line's new 4000-passenger Norwegian Breakaway, set to debut in April 2013, will be based year-round in New York City. Not long ago, Norwegian announced that the hull of the ship would feature a 40,000-square-foot, New York City-themed design with images of the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline, painted by Peter Max. Now, Norwegian has announced the Godmothers of the new ship, The New York City Rockettes.

    Two dancers from the Rockettes will also be on board for the first six sailings then one sailing a month after that, joining in for special events.

    "This signature partnership will provide Norwegian Cruise Line with unprecedented access to the Rockettes, Radio City and the Christmas Spectacular," said Melissa Ormand, president of Madison Square Garden Entertainment in Travel Weekly.

    Featuring an oceanfront boardwalk called The Waterfront, Norwegian Breakaway will have shops, restaurants and bars combined with entertainment and gaming. A hub of activity spanning three decks is called 678 Ocean Place, featuring seven dining venues, 12 bars and lounges coupled with shops and other entertainment options.

    Among the dining options will be the first all-seafood restaurant aboard an NCL ship, Ocean Blu, which will include a premium raw bar and sushi bar.

    An 11-foot model of Norwegian Breakaway will be on display year-round in the lobby of Radio City Music Hall and patrons of the Rockettes 2012 Christmas show can enter a sweepstakes to win a cruise for four aboard Breakaway.
