Norwegian Breakaway, the newest ship for Norwegian Cruise Line, has added The Bahamas to its itinerary beginning in October.
The Norwegian Breakaway is the first of two Breakaway class ships that's being built for Norwegian Cruise Line.
Prime Minister Perry Christie was among the dignitaries and other special guests who attended yesterday's lavish christening and celebration onboard the vessel.
During his remarks, he thanked K.T. Lim, chairman of Resorts World Genting, which has a 50 percent stake in the Norwegian Cruise Line, for his investments to date and his continued interest in The Bahamas.
"You have invested significantly in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas," Christie said.
"You have the basis to make further investments. When one adds this cruise ship and the others that will come to our country, it is for me to express on behalf of the government and people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas a real appreciation for the consideration that you and your company continues to express in favor of our country."
The ship's inaugural trip to The Bahamas takes place in October, as part of its seven-day Florida/Bahamas itinerary.
The Norwegian Breakaway has combined innovative design including The Waterfront and 678 Ocean Place with three decks of dining, entertainment, the largest aqua park and a ropes course at sea, along with the first ever salt room in the luxurious spa.
"We are elated to take ownership of this spectacular new vessel, the Norwegian Breakaway that has so many unique features, world-class entertainment and artfully designed staterooms," said Kevin Sheehan, the cruise line's chief executive officer.
Norwegian Breakaway's entertainment will include three Broadway shows. It will also feature a fireworks show on every cruise and will be the grand finale of a decadent 1980s-themed deck party.
Celebrity Chef and Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian will also debut his first restaurant at sea on Norwegian Breakaway called the "Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian". Buddy Valastro, star of the TLC series "Cake Boss", will open an extension of his popular bakery, Carlo's Bake Shop.
The ship will feature a total of 28 dining options on board and an ice bar.
The Norwegian Breakaway will head to Bermuda to start its first seven-day cruise beginning on May 13.
Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe was also on hand at yesterday's launch.
Meantime, its sister ship, Norwegian Getaway is expected to launch in Miami on February 1, 2014.
Was it destiny, a winning strategy or just extreme luck, that pushed Michael Davis to beat the odds and win not only the initial drawing of $1,000, but also the highly coveted $10,000 cash jackpot in Wendy’s and Coca Cola’s “Upgrade Me Too” promotion?
WAS IT destiny, a winning strategy, or just serious luck that led to Michael Davis beating the odds and winning not only the initial drawing of $1,000, but also the highly coveted $10,000 cash jackpot in Wendy's and Coca Cola's "Upgrade Me Too" promotion?
This easy going, down home guy from Freeport said he set his sights on winning from the very start.
Michael said "somehow" he just knew the big cash prize would be his, and the first win gave him and his family the motivation and determination to press on.
For the Davis family, it was a group effort. They banded together with Michael insisting that the family dine at Wendy's (their favourite quick serve re ...

The Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) and a major Bahamian rival are at odds over when a key wireless spectrum band should be opened up, the state-owned incumbent wanting this to happen immediately to meet cellular demand, with its competitor advocating a "strong argument" for this to be delayed.
Paul Hutton-Ashkenny, president of Systems Resource Group (SRG), which trades as IndiGo Networks, urged the Utilities Competition & Regulation Authority (URCA) to delay opening the 700 MHz wireless spectrum band until there was clarity on when BTC's cellular monopoly would end, adding that this would better serve the interests of the wi ...
PLP leader Perry Christie is at odds with Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham over his belief that the six hotels which are to be built as part of the Baha Mar Resort should be built or opened in phases.
Mr Christie said it would only increase the cost of the project to break down the construction into phases, and would make little sense for the resort developers not to open all of the hotels at the same time if they were all constructed simultaneously.
Paint Fair Adds Another Industry Leader To Its Product Offering With The Launch Of Its Distribution Of Acrocrete Products
Freeport, Grand Bahama - Paint Fair adds another industry leader to its product offering with the launch of its distribution of Acrocrete products.
The Elizabeth on Bay plaza will receive a boost this year with the addition of a trendy sushi lounge, Guardian Business can reveal, as the property seeks to raise its profile.
Sur, a sushi bar described as both a restaurant and an after-hours lounge, is expected to open its doors by the summer.
Charles Klonaris, a key owner and developer of Elizabeth on Bay, told Guardian Business the move should add a chic dimension to the property's offerings.
"There are plans being drawn up and experts will be coming down to look at it. It will be a beautiful place and we'll have two major restaurants on the waterfront, making the venue as a whole very attractive," he said.
Blu, the first restaurant in the complex, opened its doors in October of last year. It created dozens of jobs in the process, and according to Klonaris, sales have proven steady. The $14 million shopping plaza is also home to a variety of other boutique shops.
Sur, he added, adds a further dimension to the destination.
"It will be smaller in size than Blu, but upscale," Klonaris explained. "After late hours, they'll turn it into a lounge area where you can come after hours to check out the waterfront. A lot of thought has gone into the interior design and I think they'll be very careful on the ambiance."
The area is being leased to an American developer, he said. The total investment in the project is unknown at this time.
Although the developers expect great things for the Elizabeth on Bay shopping plaza, Klonaris told Guardian Business it is has been difficult "pioneering" East Bay Street. He felt it was an ongoing effort to convince tourists "to turn left" when they step off the cruise ships.
"We have more traffic coming down our way. We think down the road, the city is going to shift more to the east.
It will be the new Nassau, is what I would call it," he said. "We're still working with new ideas, fresh ideas and a better product mix for the consumer."
Admitting that too many of the buildings along East Bay are "dilapidated", he anticipated the rise of a boardwalk and movement of the container ports as a seminal moment in downtown's evolution. He pointed out the Kellys and Pritchards, large landowners in the area, "are moving quite fast to put together a master plan".
That would be welcomed news to Elizabeth on Bay as it continues its expansion with a sushi restaurant. More Japanese cuisine will also be a welcomed addition to Bahamian consumers. New Providence is currently home to just three notable sushi restaurants, including Nobu, Ichiban and Seafront Sushi.
"Everything we do today is for the long term," Klonaris said. "This is the first year the plaza has been there. You're going to have a trial period where you'll see growth. We're working on the product mix and changes will take place. When it comes all together ... it's hard to say.
