Norwegian Breaks Out More Project Breakaway Accommodations

Hot on the heels of revealing their possible names, Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled the balance of stateroom designs for Project Breakaway, the cruise line’s two new next generation Freestyle Cruising ships scheduled for completion in April 2013 and April 2014. Similar to the Balcony and Mini-Suite staterooms revealed this summer (images here), The Studio, Spa Balcony, Spa Mini-Suite, Oceanview, Family Mini-Suite, and Inside staterooms combine the form and function of the line’s Jewel class ships’ staterooms with the modern and contemporary design touches of Norwegian Epic.

Norwegian is continuing the popular award-winning Studio staterooms for solo travelers on the Project Breakaway ships. The 59 Studios (image at left) on each ship are specifically designed and priced for the solo traveler with an innovative bathroom design that includes a separate sink and shower to provide more personal space. The Studios, the majority of which connect, feature a full-size bed with convenient lighted recess above the bed to hold books, magazines, tablet computers, or electronic reading devices and have a unique window to the corridor. These rooms also have private keycard access to the Studio complex and exclusive two-story Studio Lounge with a bar.

For cruisers who really like to relax, the 28 Spa Balcony and the 20 Spa Mini-Suite staterooms feature tranquil spa d├ęcor and easy access to the adjacent spa and fitness center. Plus, complimentary access to the Thermal Spa Suite during operating hours is an indulgent perk that comes with these categories.

On the Project Breakaway ships, Norwegian is re-introducing Oceanview staterooms that feature large picture windows. Of the 158 Oceanview staterooms on each ship (image at right), there are approximately 42 Family Oceanviews that sleep up to five and have a bathroom similar to the Mini-Suite with a modern double sink, bath tub, and a second wardrobe for added storage. The Family Mini-Suites located on Deck 12 and 13 feature all the attributes of the Mini-Suite and are located in close proximity to the children’s facilities, making it convenient and easy for families. For families with small children, there are a number of staterooms with bath tubs.

Project Breakaway ships include 449 Inside staterooms that feature two lower beds that can be converted to a queen-size bed. Many are connecting and sleep up to four. They are located on various decks throughout the ship and some are adjacent to the children’s facilities.

Each of the 144,017 gross ton Project Breakaway vessels will have approximately 4,000 passenger berths, for which Norwegain commissioned design group Priestmangoode of the United Kingdom and Tillberg Design of Sweden, to design the staterooms. Priestmangoode won accolades and awards for designing the Studios, the first staterooms designed specifically for solo travelers, on Norwegian Epic.
