On Sunday, November 11, Norwegian Cruise Line will return to New Orleans, introducing Norwegian Breakaway to the Big Easy with five- to 11-day cruises to the Caribbean. The move will make Norwegian Breakaway the largest-ever cruise ship to homeport in the city, as well as the youngest in port this season, the cruise line said.

Following its renovation in May, Norwegian Breakaway debuted refreshed staterooms and public areas and introduced a new bar and lounge concept to the fleet with Syd Norman’s Pour House. Modeled after influential rock houses such as CBGB’s, The Rainbow and The Fillmore, Syd Norman’s is a tribute to the grandfather of “Rock of Ages” playwright Chris D’Arenso and features vintage décor, diner-style seating, signature cocktails and a playlist of classic rock from the late 1960s to 1980s. Additional entertainment options onboard include the Tony Award-nominated Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor and Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy.

Norwegian Breakaway will sail from New Orleans through April 12, 2019, offering five-, seven-, ten- and eleven-day Western Caribbean cruises with calls to some of the top Caribbean destinations, including Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico; Roatan, Honduras; Belize City; and Harvest Caye, the company’s resort-style experience in Belize.
