I’m not sure if you have noticed in the last few years how all the major cruise lines have seem to be battling it out to have the newest, biggest and boldest ships. While I usually roll my eyes at this sort of thing, I have to admit I’m one of the bystanders that oohs and awes at all the new amenities. It really is fascinating. Disney just launched their new ship this month the Disney Fantasy that follows the Disney Dream last year. These ships are 50% bigger than any of their other ships.
The next big cruise ship to come out will be NCL’s Breakaway which has her maiden voyage in April of 2013. NCL’s Breakaway boasts an oceanfront boardwalk and is slightly patterned after the Epic (so excited to sail on Epic in the Fall!) as more of a modern boutique style cruiseship. It also has the biggest teen area of any cruise ship on board.
The Breakaway will be docked in NYC and will get to see the pink sand beaches of Bermuda and will be the largest ship ever stationed in NYC. Anyone else really want to head to New York with me next year for a cruise???
