Norwegian Cruise Line, the contemporary market unit of Norwegian Cruise Line Holding, Ltd, said it would base the 4,000 passenger capacity Norwegian Breakaway in New Orleans for the winter of 2018-19.
Ports of call of the cruises from there will include Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; Roatán, Bay Islands, Honduras; and the beautiful island destination of Harvest Caye, Belize.
“Harvest Caye offers a diverse, enriching experience highlighting the natural beauty and culture of Belize along with lush native landscaping, a swim up pool bar, luxury beach villas, private pool cabanas, thrilling aerial activities and water sports. The destination also features the first ever pier in Belize that allows guests to walk straight off the ship and into paradise,” the company said in a statement.
Norwegian Gem will replace Norwegian Breakaway in New York City in the winter 2018-19 season.
“Norwegian Breakaway will be the largest and newest ship from Norwegian to sail from New Orleans, and we are thrilled to bring our signature Breakaway-class ship to this important homeport,” said Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line.
