Norwegian Cruise Line kicked off the holiday season this week by unveiling a Norwegian Breakaway interactive exhibit in the Grand Lounge of New York’s historic Radio City Music Hall, featuring a 1:100 scale model of the 4,000 passenger ship.  Guests attending the show have the opportunity to tour the exhibit to view the model and learn all about the ship’s unique attributes, entertainment, dining, destinations and more.

Norwegian also launched their “Spectacular Sweeps,” giving Radio City Christmas Spectacular attendees a chance to win a cruise, for a family of four, onboard Norwegian Breakaway, the largest ship to homeport year-round from New York City beginning May 2013.

Designated the “Official Cruise Line” of the Rockettes, Radio City Music Hall and the “Official Partner” of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Norwegian Cruise Line takes center stage during every Radio City Christmas Spectacular performance.  In one very special scene, The Rockettes dance in front of the backdrop of a glittering Times Square, featuring an eye-catching “Cruise like a Norwegian” billboard. This year’s production commemorates 85 years of the past, present and future of the Rockettes featuring dazzling dance numbers, beloved favorites, breathtaking special effects and a brand new showcase featuring the Rockettes' most extraordinary costumes through the years, alongside beloved favorites that have been in the show since its inception.

The Rockettes, one of New York’s most illustrious and beloved icons, will christen Norwegian Breakaway as the official Godmothers on May 8, 2013, further strengthening the ship’s strong ties to New York.  As the stars of the annual Christmas Spectacular production, the Rockettes entertain more than one million people at Radio City Music Hall each year and have played to 75 different cities across the country with the national touring production.

As part of their role as Godmothers, two Rockettes will sail aboard the first six sailings of Norwegian Breakaway, beginning May 12, 2013, and the first sailing of each month thereafter, taking part in special events for guests to enjoy. Onboard Norwegian Breakaway, the Rockettes, with their unparalleled grace, athleticism and precision technique that has made them part of the fabric of New York City for 85 years, will be showcased with a variety of offerings, including a historical retrospective in the ship’s library, exclusive fitness class designed by the Rockettes, featured beverages and more. On select sailings, guests will have the exclusive opportunity to meet two of the Rockettes.

To celebrate the holiday season and introduce Norwegian Breakaway’ legendary godmothers, Norwegian invites guests to experience the Rockettes’ dazzling performance first-hand and is offering a 25% savings on tickets to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, now through December 30, 2012.
