Norwegian Breakaway's Aqua Park

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the latest feature-packed details of forthcoming new ship Norwegian Breakaway for 2013, and these will take recreation and outdoor fun literally to new heights when it launches next April. 

The ship’s top decks will feature the first Aqua Park at sea with five full-size water slides, including twin Free-Fall slides, the first ever at sea. There will also be a three-story sports complex that includes the largest ropes course at sea, a nine-hole miniature golf course, basketball court, rock-climbing wall and more. The line also announced that the ship will feature Nickelodeon experiences for the whole family and will include a Nickelodeon themed Kids’ Aqua Park.

The Aqua Park is Norwegian’s biggest innovation yet and features five multi-story water slides. Breakaway is the first cruise ship to feature the Free Fall – two side-­by-side slides where guests will stand up and have the floor drop from underneath, propelling them into a thrilling loop. 

Offering another first with a twist are two additional side-by-side twister slides – called The Whip - that deliver an unforgettable adrenaline rush as they plunge guests on a spiral race to the finish line. For those who prefer a more relaxing ride, there is a family-friendly open-flume body slide. The Aqua Park also features a Kids’ Aqua Park, two swimming pools, four hot tubs and the Breezeway Bar & Grill, a semi-open air eatery.

Adult Only Areas

Breakaway will also feature several adult-only outdoor areas. Spice H2O, located at the back of the ship on deck 16, is an adult-only escape with contemporary Asian influences, offering day-time relaxation and night-time exhilaration. 

Sun loungers surround a huge video screen, complete with two hot tubs and a soothing dual waterfall feature, perfect for cooling off from the sun. At night, guests can dance under the stars or chill at the bar with accompanying lounge area, featuring comfortable seating while admiring the ocean views.
