NCL Breakaway Stateroom Designs Revealed

Norwegian Cruise Line unveiled the first look at its new balcony and mini-suite stateroom designs for Project Breakaway, the project name for the two new ships scheduled for delivery in April 2013 and April 2014.  Each ship will have 1,024 balcony staterooms and 238 mini-suites.

Balcony staterooms will have a king-size bed (that can be separated) with a pillow top mattress set against a cushioned and tufted chestnut leather headboard.  Mini-suites are a roomier version of the balcony stateroom with a larger, more luxurious bathroom that incorporates a large, modern double sink with two faucets and an over-sized spa-like shower with a rain shower head and multiple body spray jets.
