Today we took delivery of our 146.600 GT cruise ship, Norwegian Breakaway from MEYER WERFT after a building period of only 18 months. Extensive tests and trials of all systems and intensive training of the crew kept everyone busy in the last weeks prior to the delivery in Bremerhaven.

“We are elated to take ownership of this spectacular new vessel Norwegian Breakaway that has so many unique features, world-class entertainment and artfully designed staterooms,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Chief Executive Officer.  “This is the moment we’ve been waiting patiently for. I am so proud of the team at MEYER WERFT and at Norwegian who worked tirelessly on our newest and most exciting ship.”
