NCL unveils more ‘Breakaway’ cabin designs

By Jerry Limone
Breakaway spa mini-suiteNorwegian Cruise Line has unveiled more cabin designs for two ships scheduled for delivery in April 2013 and April 2014.

The ships don’t have names yet, and Norwegian is calling the venture “Project Breakaway.”

Similar to the balcony and mini-suite cabins revealed this summer, other cabins “combine the form and function of the line’s Jewel-class ships’ staterooms with the modern and contemporary design touches of the Norwegian Epic,” Norwegian said.

The 59 studio cabins on each ship will have a separate sink and shower to provide more personal space. Guests in studios will have private keycard access to an exclusive two-story lounge with a bar.

Twenty-eight spa balcony cabins and 20 spa mini-suite cabins will feature “tranquil spa decor” and will be adjacent to the spa and fitness center, plus offer complimentary access to the Thermal Spa Suite during operating hours, said the cruise line.

Oceanview cabins will have large windows. Of the 158 oceanview staterooms on each ship, there will be approximately 42 family cabins that sleep up to five guests.

Each oceanview family cabin will have a bathroom similar to the mini-suite: modern double sink, bathtub and second wardrobe for added storage.

The family mini-suites located on Deck 12 and 13 will feature all the attributes of the mini-suites and will be located near the children’s facilities. Some of these cabins will have bathtubs.

Each of the 449 inside cabins will have two lower beds that can be converted to a queen-size bed. Many cabins will be connecting and sleep up to four guests each, Norwegian said.

Each of the ships will have 4,000 passenger berths.
