Despite the awful weather, I’m sailing today on the inaugural cruise of the NCL Breakaway, the beautiful new ship that will be sailing from NYC year round. The Norwegian Breakaway is being christened at 2 p.m., and you can watch live – click here for the link to the livestreaming. The hull is decorated with famous New York City landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, designed by world famous poster artist Peter Max, who I met last night at a special Breakaway preview party for journalists and bloggers. The Breakaway is berthed at Pier 88, and departs on her maiden voyage this evening. She’s a wonderful addition to New York City, and to travel to and from New York City.
