Off the Bremnes coast, The Breakaway, Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest and most state-of-the-art sea vessel, was put through a cadre of rigorous trials. Cruise ships, under so much heat lately with recent disasters, are repeatedly tested for speed, maneuverability, and put through a number of disaster scenarios. Luckily, all went well for the new vessel, it even exceeded some expectations.
The linchpins of these trials are the “Williamson’s Turn” and the “Zig Zag”, which are designed to examine a ships responsiveness and ability to maneuver deftly while holding a steady course. Afterwards, the ships ever important propulsion units were stringently evaluated by jamming them to full speed at a moments notice, and while the crew held tight, important gauges and dials were persistently monitored. After reaching top speed, the ship was then jerked to a sudden and grinding halt as the azipods (the main propulsion drive) launched into a somersault, ripping the ship into a high speed reverse. All industry standards were ferociously crushed by this gleaming new warrior of oceanic leisure, and her salty crew.
Once the excitement died down, all tests pertaining to creature comforts were observed, such as: soundproofing of walls, structural integrity under extreme vibrations, and the effect of storm-grade winds on the open air decks. Luckily, no one was seriously mangled during these procedures, and once completed the whole team was able to catch their breath and enjoy a well earned celebration in honor of their brilliant nickelodeon cruise success.
The Breakaway is a uniquely themed ship, with all the marks of New York City’s finest amenities and cultural highlights. Guests will be amazed when they see: an open-air boardwalk, a replicated version of The Waterfront, along with the opportunity to catch live broadway shows hundreds of miles away from civilization. The celebrated Slam Allen is slated to perform regularly, as well The Second City comedy troupe. And if that isn’t enough, there will be a high-powered display of fireworks, engineered to whip travelers into a frenzy, during a zany 80s dance group travel party.
The ship will also feature an Ice Bar, kept at a chilly 17 degrees, where guests can cool off after the dance group travel event, calming their nerves with famous NYC cocktails as they gaze upon colossal ice sculptures of noteworthy landmarks from the Big Apple. Children will be delighted with nickelodeon cruise featuring cutting-edge water park that includes 5 full-size slides, and a 3 story funhouse featuring, among other things, mini-golf and rock-climbing.
