The biggest cruise ship ever to visit Bermuda has added new shore trips to its schedule.

Passengers on the 4,000 passenger Norwegian Breakaway, which will sail from New York from May, will be able to enjoy night reef fishing trips on the Jolly Roger, take a bicycle trip on the Railway Trail and tour the island and St George on the high speed catamaran, the WildCat.

Breakaway guests will also be able to go on special night snorkeling tours and enjoy a private boat tour of the island’s hard-to-get-to treasures.

Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Lines’ (NCL) chief executive officer, said: “Bermuda is one of my favourite destinations and is such a fun and beautiful place to visit.

“These new Bermuda shore excursions are sure to complement the exciting features and amenities our guests can experience on board Norwegian Breakaway and enhance their cruise vacation on this spectacular island.”

He added: “Norwegian Breakaway guests will also have the opportunity to experience several excursions exclusive to the ship, including the opportunity to explore Bermuda’s natural beauty and hidden treasures in a more personalised setting and at their own pace with a private boat tour.”

The new trips add bring the total of shore trips available to NCL passengers on the Breakaway and sister ship Norwegian Dawn, which sails from Boston, to more than 30.

The Breakaway is scheduled to visit Bermuda on 22 trips next season, running from May to October, and will be berthed at Dockyard for three days.
