Norwegian Breakaway arrives in Southampton

Norwegian Breakaway has become one of the biggest ships to make its debut in Southampton after arriving at the UK port ahead of a trade preview.

The Norwegian Cruise Line ship made a pre-inaugural overnight sailing from Rotterdam to arrive in the UK port.

Agents from across the UK trade will be invited onboard today as the 4,028-passenger ship is showcased.

The Norwegian delegation will be led by chief executive Kevin Sheehan.

Agents are also being given the opportunity to meet representatives from key cruise destinations, including Alaska, Seattle, Miami, Clearwater Beach, Barcelona, Malaga and Palma.

UK & Ireland business development director Nick Wilkinson said: “Our Partners First philosophy recognises the central part that the trade plays in product distribution, and the Engage & Reward programme idea is rooted in that.

“Attending agents will have the opportunity to earn incremental commission for their organisation through attending the various educational elements of the launch activity.”

Norwegian Breakaway leaves tomorrow for its homeport of New York where it will be officially named on May 8th.

Summer cruises to Bermuda start two days later.
