To Light Up the Sky

When Norwegian Breakaway debuts this May in New York City, it will feature  an exciting fireworks show on every cruise during her summer inaugural season.

The environmentally-friendly pyrotechnics display will dazzle guests on the second to last night at sea each week, after the ship departs Bermuda.

1980s Deck Party

Norwegian Cruise Line is known for their entertainment such as The Second City Comedy and Blue Man Group.  They also are known for deck parties and on the new Breakaway, they'll be taking things to a new level. Building on the electrifying theme of the ship’s headlining Broadway show, ROCK OF AGES, the awe-inspiring fireworks will be the grand finale of a decadent 1980s-themed deck party and will be set to a specially-selected playlist of classic 1980s hits by artists like Madonna, Devo and Prince.

“All the incredible entertainment and amenities on Norwegian Breakaway are going to wow our guests,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s CEO. “We wanted one additional element that would really blow them away and this incredible fireworks show is going to take the cruise to a new level of excitement.” 

Guests will party the night away under the 
stars in the open-air Spice H20 venue at the aft of the ship while enjoying the  fully-produced show featuring a visual masterpiece that is set to a playlist of classic 80s hits including “Come on Feel the Noise,” by Quiet Riot; “Whip It,” by Devo; “Cherish,” by Madonna; “Final Countdown,” by Europe; and “Purple Rain,” by Prince. In a breathtaking finale, a mesmerizing color-filled fireworks show will light up the night sky, right above the ship. New Yorkers are very familiar with fireworks shows set to music, with the annual Fourth of July spectacular hosted by Macy's.   We suspect this show will be as exciting as that annual event.

The 4,000 passenger Norwegian Breakaway will 
begin weekly summer seven-day cruises to Bermuda on Sunday, May 12, 2013 after its arrival in her year-round homeport of New York City on May 7th. From October 2013 through April 2014, New York’s ship will offer voyages from the heart of Manhattan to the Bahamas & Florida and the Southern Caribbean. 

Not the First Ship to Offer Fireworks

While Norwegian Cruise Line often is the first to introduce new ideas at sea, they unfortunately can't claim the fireworks show.   Disney Cruise Lines offers a similar experience onboard their ships during their "Pirates in the Caribbean" show.  Pirates chase each other around the deck as music blares and culminates as the nighttime sky is lit by colorful exploding bursts of light.  We'll have to wait and see if Norwegian Breakaway's show comes in first or second place in guest rankings.  Be sure to plan your cruise during this inaugural season so that you'll be able to see what promises to be an exciting show.
