    Norwegian Breakaway makes maiden call to Bermuda

    Norwegian Breakaway made her inaugural stop in Bermuda on May 15, on her first seven-day voyage which departed New York on Sunday.

    Carrying 4,000 guests, Norwegian Breakaway, the largest ship to ever port in Bermuda, docked at Heritage Wharf at approximately 8 am local time.

    Bermuda’s Premier Craig Cannonier and local officials greeted the ship and Captain Evans Hoyt amidst much fanfare.

    “On behalf of the people of Bermuda, we are so pleased to welcome Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda,” said Cannonier at a press conference held on the dock. “We thank Norwegian Cruise Line for bringing their magnificent new vessel to our beautiful island. The ship’s guests and crew are of the utmost importance to us and we will show them all that Bermuda has to offer.”

    The 146,600 gross ton ship was christened on Wednesday, May 8 during an exclusive ceremony featuring Premier Cannonier, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York City icons The Rockettes, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, and Master Baker Buddy Valastro, star of TLC’s “Cake Boss,” among others. Her signature hull art featuring a large sun, planets and the New York skyline was designed by legendary artist Peter Max.

    “Bermuda is a world-class summer destination for our world-class ship,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “We thank Premier Cannonier, the government of Bermuda and all of her residents for welcoming our new ship with such gracious hospitality. We know our guests are going to have an amazing time on this beautiful island.”

    This voyage is the first in a series of 22 cruises to Bermuda through October 6. Weeklong cruises on this incredible new ship start at $1049 per person, double occupancy.

    Norwegian Breakaway spends three days in Bermuda and offers more than 30 unique shore excursions. Guests can go reef fishing at night, bike the original Bermuda railway trail and explore the spectacular scenery by paddleboard.

    Norwegian Breakaway guests will also have the opportunity to experience several excursions exclusive to the ship, including the opportunity to explore Bermuda’s natural beauty and hidden treasures in a more personalized setting and at their own pace with a private boat tour.

    Beginning October 13, Norwegian Breakaway will offer seven-day voyages from the heart of Manhattan to the Bahamas and Florida, as well as two 12-day sailings to the Southern Caribbean.

    I like the fact that when the ship sits in port for several days, you can go off the ship and not have to worry about getting back at a specific time. Bermuda cruises are very relaxing!
