Norwegian Cruise Lines has been killing it lately, haven’t they? There can be no doubt that they’ve truly carved out a space as one of the top cruise lines in the world, and the Norwegian Breakaway stands as a testament to this. From all the fun you can have up on deck to all the fun you can have below decks, the Breakaway is a ship that’s ready to deliver a memorable vacation to you and yours.
Naturally, you’ll find the things that you’ve come to expect from NCL on the Breakaway. For example, you’ll find some amazing water slides up on deck as well as a challenging ropes course. But, there’s other things that really give the Breakaway a character all of its own.

Or, if you need to relax, then you can pay a visit to the ship’s world-class spa.
