Norwegian Breakaway Highlights
    New Spaces
  • 678 Ocean Place - As soon as you approach, you can feel the energy. It's captivating. Magnetic. It's one space that uniquely flows, intertwines and connects three entire decks of daytime and nighttime entertainment. This electric destination is the heart of Norwegian Breakaway. Welcome to 678 Ocean Place.
    But it's more than the vibe that will pull you into the experience. The architecture is also mesmerizing. Take in the sweeping views from each interconnected level. Marvel at the showcase chandelier sparkling with sophistication. And the glass staircases that elegantly spiral up and down in the spectacular space are, in a word, dazzling.
    What's more, each level within 678 Ocean Place offers something different, from relaxing with a cosmo at the Atrium Bar on Deck 6 to exciting casino action on Deck 7. Buzzing with excitement of its own is Deck 8 where you'll find The Waterfront along with a myriad of venues offering indoor and outdoor seating.   » See video highlights.
  • The Waterfront - Imagine spending your day or night exploring shops, restaurants and bars along a quarter-mile oceanfront boardwalk. The breeze tickles your skin. You can almost taste the salt air. Your connection to the ocean strengthens with each moment you spend outdoors. Now, imagine you're miles out to sea. Eight decks above the water and worlds away from anything you've ever experienced. Welcome to The Waterfront.
    The Waterfront is a destination to be experienced thoroughly and often. With each visit, you can discover something new like Ocean Blu on the Waterfront, our first seafood restaurant.
    Dine oceanside in an Italian trattoria and savor a glass of Chianti. Pop into the martini bar for front row seats to the sunset.
    Just as adventurers were drawn to the sea, you'll feel the same sensation and exhilaration as you discover this revolutionary oceanfront destination. It's a unique outdoor experience that adds a whole new dimension to Freestyle Cruising.   » See video highlights.
  • The Haven - An exclusive, private enclave Hidden away at the top of the ship is an exclusive place reserved for a privileged few. It is home to the most well-appointed and spacious accommodations you'll find aboard Norwegian Breakaway. Contemporary elegance, personalized service and privacy combine to create a unique cruising experience. We call it The Haven by Norwegian. You'll call it your own personal slice of paradise.
    The personalized experience begins from the moment you arrive - whether taking advantage of the 24-hour services of your certified butler or enjoying the privacy of The Haven Courtyard offering two levels of private beach club ambiance and a private pool. We've also recently added a retractable roof so the weather's always perfect.
    In addition, guests of The Haven enjoy a private lounge and delicious extras such as a private dining experience at The Haven Restaurant, exclusive cocktail parties and gourmet treats. Countless pleasures await you at The Haven.   » See video highlights.

  • Moderno Churrascaria - Add a Brazilian touch to your Bermuda or Bahamas itinerary
    Norwegian was first to bring this dining concept to sea, and now we've taken it a step further with outdoor seating at our signature Brazilian-style steakhouse. Whether you dine indoors or out, your mouth will water as different grilled and slow-roasted meats are carved tableside. Use your Moderno Green and Red Place Card to control the carving. Green side up and the professional "Passadores" will continue to stop at your table with succulent skewers of meats. Use the red side to stop.
    Moderno Signature Salad display is a traditional part of any churrascaria. You'll find a mouthwatering, bountiful selection of freshly prepared salads, artisan cheeses and more.
  • La Cucina Italian Restaurant - Bring your familia and enjoy our colorful piazza-style trattoria.
    Prefer your pasta al dente in the main restaurant, outdoors on The Waterfront or would you like to dine Atrium Al Fresco-style? The menu at La Cucina's is casual, family-style Italian and the ambiance, including the courtyard, is Tuscan-esque complete with lanterns, timbers and stonework. Be sure to try the pizza.
  • Shanghai's Noodle Bar - When you crave a taste of the Orient, think Shanghai's Noodle Bar. You'll find it on Deck 7, next to The Manhattan Room. Sit at the counter and let our skilled chefs prepare authentic dim sum and fried rice as you watch. It's more than delicious, it's fun! Order your noodles prepared in a wok or cooked to perfection in a scrumptious broth with your choice of sauces and flavors. This dining option is priced a la carte.
  • Cagney's Steakhouse - Succulent grilled steaks along with perfectly cooked double cut lamb chops will make your mouth water at our signature steakhouse. With an opening to view The Manhattan Room below, you can dine in style amidst the warm wood tones and comfortable leather. It's an experience that should be savored and enjoyed at least once on your cruise.

  • Entertainment & Bars & Lounges
  • Bliss Ultra Lounge - Cruise into the clubbing scene at Bliss. Dance to a different beat and feel the excitement as you walk through the lit tunnel to the illuminated bar. It's electric. Bliss is a top hot spot every night of the week. Experience it.
  • Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar - Sit starboard, right alongside the sea where the view is intoxicating. Good times flow indoors, too. With a unique international variety of spirits and an impressive list of imported and domestic beers, you can sip your way around the world without leaving your chair in air-conditioned comfort.

  • Shaker's Cocktail Bar - Happy hour comes shaken or stirred at this classic martini bar with a twist. Join the martini crowd for some cosmopolitan ambiance or try the latest, modern concoction made to your liking.
  • Bar 21 - The sounds of the slot machines and cheers of the crowd at the neighboring casino won't distract you from noticing this stunning, intimate bar. It could easily become your favorite haunt, especially late at night.
  • Cafe & Bar at the Atrium - Relax in the center of the hustle and bustle of the Atrium. Linger with cocktails or coffee in this grand space that offers three-deck vertical views and a two-story Wii wall.
  • Mixx Bar - Mingle with new friends and enjoy live piano at Mixx, a modern classical, pre-dinner gathering place between two of our most popular dining spots.

  • Recreation Spaces
  • Aqua Park - Seventeen decks above the sea, wind in your hair, sun on your back, ocean views all around, and before you - a stellar selection of liquid delights: five multi-story waterslides, two swimming pools, four hot tubs...more water than ever before. It's a proverbial smorgasbord of aquatic opportunities.
    For a twisted thrill, the Whip is two racing, side-by-side twister slides that deliver one unforgettable rush. Or, try the Free Fall - one of two drop-slides that rapidly plunge you into fun, feet first. It's the fastest water slide at sea!
    For a beach-style break, relax in a lounger alongside the extended pool edge. Or just pause, reflect and enjoy the many special water features. Dancing, jumping, glowing ... and we're not just talking about the water.
  • Three-Story Sports Complex - Our Sports Complex provides three stories of action-packed activities including two new additions that will test your skills like never before.
    Challenge yourself with our new, largest-at-sea ropes course where you can conquer over 40 elements as you masterfully maneuver through this multi-level structure. For the ultimate thrill, confront The Plank that extends 8 feet over the side of the ship. Cameras capture your conquering moment.
    Our ocean-themed, mini golf course is where the young and young-at-heart can go for par on nine different holes. With obstacles for all skill levels, everyone can perfect their putt.
    Want to be a rock star? Try your skills on our rock-climbing wall. Or try a few flips at the bungee trampoline, then try the Spider Web - a 24-foot enclosed climbing cage complete with a spiral slide.
    If traditional sports are more your game, join a pick-up game on the basketball court where you can breathe in the ocean air and polish your three-pointers.

  • Youth Venues
  • Entourage - Entourage is a place where teens can be themselves, hang out, meet new friends and get lost in a world of cool comfort. Ages 13-17 are welcome to this inviting venue, designed like a chic adult lounge, minus the adults.
    The atmosphere of Entourage is stylish during the day with an easy vibe perfect for relaxing, listening to favorite tunes on the video jukebox or watching movies on the big screen TVs. There's also plenty of big time fun to be had with PlayStation 3, pinball, air hockey and foosball. But once the sun goes down, Entourage transforms into a cosmopolitan space where they can dance or just chill with mod seating and an awesome ambience.
    When hunger strikes, the adjacent Breezeway Grill is perfect for a casual bite. The video arcade is right there, too.
    Entourage also has amazingly cool counselors. They're not only young and relatable, they're trained and certified and are totally awesome at planning activities like nighttime pool and pizza parties and group games.
  • Splash Academy - It's our biggest kids' area yet! This radical venue was created especially for our young fans, ages 3 to 12 years. Within this two-story facility sprinkled with NickelodeonTM excitement, kids can do what they do best - be a kid!
    At Splash Academy, kids 3-12 can dance on the interactive, light-up floor; clown around at circus school; play Wii and PlayStation 3 and watch movies in the state-of-the-art cinema. In addition to high-tech games, kids can do crafts and participate in pirate parades and more.
    The icing on the cake? Your children will love our certified and energetic counselors (so will you)! These take-charge pros do more than supervise - they're masters at playing, creating, inventing and sharing giggles with your kids. It's a win-win. Parents relax. Kids play. Families connect.
    New to Norwegian is a dedicated nursery area where parents and children, ages 6 months to 2 years, can enjoy quality time playing and interacting in a stimulating and comfortable environment.
  • Kids Aqua Park - What could be better than hanging with NickelodeonTM characters from Bikini Bottom at the top of the ship? How about if they squirted water and showered you with silliness? You got it at Norwegian Breakaway Kids' Aqua Park! You'll find colorful, whimsical and larger-than-life figurines of SpongeBob, Squidward, Patrick and more surrounding a shallow pool perfectly sized for kids. Slide on in and prepare to get soaked.

    "On a ship like the Norwegian Breakaway you really do break-away from your inhibitions. I found myself "breaking away" and enjoying the ship's huge ropes course - the experience was nothing short of thrilling! Not only was I tens of feet above the top deck but hundreds of feet above the ocean, enjoying a million dollar view as I snaked my way through the obstacles. Tense at times, exciting at most, the ropes course was certainly a highlight of my trip. The cherry on top was most certainly the zip line across the width of the boat. Not normally one for heights, the Norwegian Breakaway broke me away from my fears and I enjoyed every minute of it!"

    ~ Adam, cruised aboard the Norwegian Breakaway
