Norwegian Breakaway has changed its current itinerary due to the threat of Hurricane Nicole. The Hurricane is a category 3 and causing disruption to Bermuda located in the Atlantic Ocean.

The NCL ship was originally scheduled to call at Bermuda on October 12. The cruise line stated, “we adjusted Norwegian Breakaway’s itinerary for this week’s cruise to call in Port Canaveral on Wednesday, October 12, from 12 pm until 9 pm and in Nassau today, from 3 pm until 9 pm.” Norwegian Breakaway also departed its home port in New York later than usual to allow Tropical Storm Matthew to move further away from the coast.

The National Hurricane Center (NOAA) reports that Hurricane Nicole is currently at category 3 with maximum sustained winds of 120 MPH. The island of Bermuda is being hit by the strong weather conditions where Hurricane force winds extend out as far as 70 miles. The Hurricane is heading northeast directly over Bermuda.

As a gesture of goodwill Norwegian Cruise Line is giving all passengers a $200 onboard credit, this can be spent on the ship. NCL stated, “We sincerely thank our guests for choosing Norwegian for their cruise vacation and the 1600 dedicated crew members aboard Norwegian Breakaway will do everything in their power to make Norwegian Breakaway’s cruise this week the most spectacular vacation experience possible.”

Norwegian Breakaway’s next cruise will be out of Cape Liberty on October 16, this voyage will include a call at Bermuda which so far is scheduled to go ahead as normal.
