Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that following the successful installation of Norwegian Breakaway’s bow, it is now in the process of putting a New York style ice bar in place.
The ship, which is going to be the largest vessel to ever be homeported in New York, is to have ties to the city throughout – from its Rockettes godmothers to the hull artwork, which was created by renowned artist Peter Max.
“Placing the bow is a very symbolic and momentous step in the building of Norwegian Breakaway,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “Meyer Werft is doing an incredible job of constructing our most groundbreaking ship to date in record time.”
Norwegian Cruise Line was the first line to ever feature an ice bar at sea and the Breakaway will feature special features – including ice sculptures of famous monuments including the Brooklyn Bridge, Status of Liberty and the Chrysler Building.
The ice bar will be able to accommodate 25 guests at a time and will be opened with the launch of the Breakaway in May 2013.
