Our friend Andreas Depping, an extrodinary photographer who has made it a passion and hobby of his to capture all the new ships as they make their “Float-out” debut at Meyer Werft Shipyard in Pappenburg, Germany, has captured beautiful and striking images of the soon to be sailing Norwegian Breakaway. She is planned to be delivered in April 2013, and will be 144,017 GT in size, and have capacity for about 4,000 passengers. The ship will have a total of 1,024 staterooms and 238 suites, designed by Priestmangoode and Tillberg Design. Andreas has been taking remarkable pictures of all the ships built at the Pappernburg shipyard for several years now. His photos have become so popular that industry executives have even extended invitations for him to come aboard and photograph the ships interiors and attend some of the per-inagural festivities. View all of his pictures and take a virtual tour of many different ships, please visit his Cruise Ship Gallery Website.
Norwegian Breakaway will be homeported at the New York Passenger Ship Terminal in Manhattan, making seven-day cruises to Bermuda (May thru Sept) and seven-day cruises to the Bahamas & Florida (October thru April). She will be the largest cruise ship to sail from New York City. She is slated to be christened by the world’s most famous kick-line and dances, New York’s own Rockettes. The hull art is also indicative of her Big Apple home port.
The ship, along with her sister Norwegian Getaway, were named through a public contest; Kimberly Powell submitted the name Norwegian Breakaway, which was announced on 14 September 2011.
