Today, Norwegian Cruise Line made another big splash by unveiling Norwegian Breakaway’s ground-breaking recreation and outdoor spaces. Norwegian Breakaway will feature an unparalleled multi-story Aqua Park and will be the only ship in the world to feature five full-size water slides. This high-thrill, incredible aqua park will be Norwegian’s largest ever and home to the first-ever twin Free Fall slides at sea, also the fastest slides at sea. As riders stand up in the chute, the floor will abruptly drop from underneath, propelling them into a thrilling loop. The Whip, two additional side-by-side twister slides, will give guests the ultimate adrenaline rush – as they plunge through a two-story spiral in a race to the finish line. For families, the park will also feature an open-flume body slide. And for those who wish to just chill out can do so in one of the two main pools, four hot tubs or at Breezeway Bar & Grill, a semi-open air eatery, serving up delicious pool-side favorites.
Norwegian Breakaway’s spectacular sports complex was also designed with sports enthusiasts and adventure-seekers in mind. Spanning three stories, it will be Norwegian’s largest sports complex by far, and offer guests the ultimate challenge on the largest ropes course at sea. Here, guests will enjoy testing their endurance as they meander through each of the course’s 40 different elements. Guests will also be challenged to hang on tight as they whizz along the zip track, and be dared not to hold their breath as they walk out along The Plank. Extending eight feet over the side of the ship, The Plank will give guests the opportunity to test their mettle as they step out on to the narrow platform, looking down at the water below! As if that wasn’t enough excitement, the complex also includes a special ropes course for children, a nine-hole ocean-themed miniature golf course, a three-story rock climbing wall, bungee trampoline and spider web, a 24-foot enclosed climbing cage with a spiral slide.
Children will also have a blast splashing around in the Nickelodeon themed Kids’ Aqua Park surrounded by statues of their favorite, whimsical and larger than life Nickelodeon characters, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick, Squidward and more. Family-favorite Nickelodeon Programming is also back on Norwegian Breakaway, including the all-new Pajama Jam Character Breakfast, Dora’s Dance Party, Nickelodeon Character Meet and Greets, Story Time with Dora, Nickelodeon Arts and Crafts and more. Splash Academy, the ship’s two-story youth area, will also feature Nickelodeon characters and activities.
Also revealed today was Spice H2O, the ultimate adult-only enclave. The combination of comfortable sun loungers, a huge video screen, two hot tubs and a soothing waterfall feature (perfect for cooling off from the sun) will make Spice H20 the ideal destination for daytime relaxation. When the sun goes down, Spice H20 will transform into a night time hot spot where guests can dance under the stars, chill out at bar or lounge area, while admiring the ocean views. Vibe Beach Club is another adults-only hot spot. This exclusive beach club will be the perfect place to relax, unwind, soak up the sun and enjoy a refreshing drink from the bar.
Back by popular demand, Garden Café, Norwegian’s action-station restaurant will also be found on board Norwegian Breakaway and will offer guests an abundant assortment of delicious menu items for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No matter what they are craving – guests will find it here and enjoy watching the skilled chefs at each station prepare a wide variety of fresh, made-to-order dishes, including seafood, pizza, fruit, soups, pasta, ethnic specialties, burgers, desserts and more.
