The fans who voted for their most liked ship name were also entered into a random drawing. The price is to attend the inaugural festivities of the first Breakaway class ship. Also included in the prize is transportation, meals and a balcony cabin! the winner will be announced on the cruise lines facebook page.
The Breakaway Plus class ships will be the largest ever built for the cruise line and they will overtake Norwegian Epic which is currently the largest in the fleet. The Norwegian Escape and Bliss will each be 163,000 gross tons carrying 4,200 passengers, thats big! The design of the ships will be similar to the current Breakaway class ships which are Norwegian Breakaway and the upcoming Norwegian Getaway.
