Fireworks At Sea Planned For Norwegian Breakaway

Norwegian Cruise Line is set to bring cruise entertainment to a whole new level with the announcement of a fireworks display on every cruise onboard the new Norwegian Breakaway. Debuting May 2013 and homeported in New York, the ship will dazzle guests on the second last night at sea each week during her inaugural season with the pyrotechnics show, the grand finale of an electrifying 1980s-themed deck party.


Building on her headlining Broadway show “Rock of Ages”, the visual spectacular will light up the night sky above the open-air Spice H2O venue on the aft of the Norwegian Breakaway. A playlist of classic 80s hits including “Come on Feel the Noise” by Quiet Riot, “Whip It” by Devo, “Cherish” by Madonna, “Final Countdown” by Europe and “Purple Rain” by Prince sets the party atmosphere as the ship sails back to New York from Bermuda.


The fireworks display is the latest in a series of groundbreaking features unveiled for the 4,000-passenger vessel. Norwegian Cruise Line has commissioned legendary artist Peter Max for the Norwegian Breakaway’s hull art, while a wide range of indoor and outdoor venues on 3 dynamic decks are aimed at enhancing guests’ connection with the ocean. Her Aqua Park will be the first in the world to feature 5 full-size water slides and a 3-storey sports complex will incorporate the largest ropes course at sea.


A trio of Broadway shows (5-time Tony Award-nominated “Rock of Ages”, dance sensation “Burn the Floor” and “Cirque Dreams & Dinner Jungle Fantasy”), “Howl at the Moon” dueling pianos and New York’s own Slam Allen promise a slew of entertainment options onboard. Celebrity chef and Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian debuts his first restaurant at sea with Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian.


Currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, Norwegian Breakaway will arrive in New York on 7 May 2013 to be christened by godmothers The Rockettes. She then begins year-round weekly Bermuda roundtrips from 12 May 2013, spending 3 days at sea with 2 overnights in King’s Wharf.
