Next, board the Norwegian Breakaway cruise ship for your western Caribbean cruise. The buzzing 678 Ocean Place connects three floors of nightlife, shops, dining and bars for day and night time entertainment, so there will never be a dull moment as you travel through the tropical waters surrounding the Caribbean. From an abundance of sophisticated bars, lounges and restaurants to a vast collection of sports activities and duty-free shops, there really is something for everyone to enjoy on board.
Boasting world-class amenities including The Aqua Park, with five multi-storey slides and Free Fall, the fastest drop slide at sea, as well as the Sports Complex, which features a rock climbing wall, the largest high wire course at sea, a 9-hole mini golf course and The Plank, a daring feat which expands 8 feet over the side of the ship. If you want some quality relaxation time, head to the Mandara® Spa which offers over 50 treatments to leave you feeling refreshed, or perhaps go for a walk along the quarter-mile oceanfront promenade deck, with unparalleled views of the turquoise oceans surrounding the ship, or bring your workout on-board at the Pulse Fitness Centre. Alternatively, head for some retail therapy at the vast range of duty-free shops and stock up on any essentials or perhaps treat yourself to a new perfume or jewellery. Adults can also try their luck at the casino or enjoy unwinding at the Thermal Suite.
Kids can also enjoy their own Kid’s Aqua Park with shallow pools and exciting slides at the top of the ship. Splash Academy is the biggest kids’ area yet for kids aged 3-12 with two storeys of endless fun. Teens aged 13-17 can also enjoy meeting new friends at Entourage, designed to be a sophisticated adult-style lounge without the adults.
At night, the ship comes alive with Broadway entertainment, including star-studded shows such as Velvet, which combines circus acrobatics and groovy disco tunes, and Six, the sell-out musical featuring the unlikely combination of pop music and Henry VIII’s wives that every musical lover is talking about. There’s even a breath-taking ballroom dancing show, Burn the Floor, featuring 45 minutes of non-stop dances from the Charleston to the Rumba and Cha-Cha. If you’re left feeling inspired to try dancing for yourself, the show dancers will help you at the ship’s dance and exercise classes.
