The birthday was saluted by the ship's godmothers, the Rockettes.
In addition, Fred Dixon, NYC & Company's president and CEO, called Norwegian Breakaway 'a great addition to our city and we’re excited to have her continue to share the best of NYC every week.'
New York City Economic Development Corp. president Kyle Kimball said the cruise industry plays a critical role in the economy, supporting thousands of jobs and a robust tourism and hospitality industry.
Norwegian Breakaway's anniversary signals the start of the summer season, as the ship sails the second of 22 weekly cruises to Bermuda through Sept. 28, with Sunday departures.
This birthday week sailing also coincides with the 2,000th performance of Cirque Dreams & Dinner: Jungle Fantasy, held in the ship’s Spiegel Tent.
