Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed further details of what to expect on board its newest ship, Norwegian Breakaway, which launches in April 2013.

The ship will feature two firsts for the line – The Waterfront, an oceanfront boardwalk lined with shops, restaurants and bars, and 678 Ocean Place (pictured), which adds three decks of dining, bars, entertainment and gaming.

Norwegian will also introduce a new dining concept on Norwegian Breakaway, Ocean Blu, the line’s first ever all-seafood restaurant, which will include a separate sushi bar.

There will be a total of 17 dining venues combined on both 678 Ocean Place and The Waterfront, along with 12 bars and lounges.

The Waterfront will feature eight outdoor dining and lounging options, including signature Norwegian favourites like Moderno Churrascaria; Cagney’s Steakhouse; La Cucina; Shaker’s Cocktail Bar; Malting’s Beer & Whiskey Bar; and the newest addition, Ocean Blu on The Waterfront, with outdoor seating and a special takeaway menu.

The Waterfront will also feature another first for Norwegian – a gelato bar serving a selection of flavours. A yet-to-be-announced entertainment venue will also have an outdoor space.

On Deck 8, 678 Ocean Place connects the The Waterfront outdoor spaces with interior dining venues for Moderno; Cagney’s; Shaker’s; La Cucina; Malting’s and Ocean Blu, including the raw and sushi bars.

“With our newest ship, Norwegian Breakaway, we are continuing our tradition of innovation with a brand new ship design that will provide our guests with a unique experience unlike anything else at sea,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive.
