Today Norwegian Cruise Lines released images and details for the balcony rooms and mini-suites on the two ordered ships, which they are entitling "Project Breakaway". The ships, set to sail in 2013 and 2014, will be 144,000 tons, which is smaller than their newest ship, the Norwegian Epic. Other notable differences from the Epic will be the return to "normal" cabin restrooms and the lack of curved walls in the stateroom. New upgrades are a built in 26 inch LED television, extra storage, all energy efficient LED lighting and a muted color palatte. The new ships will feature 1,024 balcony rooms and 238 mini-suits. More details and pictures can be found here at NCL's site. Further information about other stateroom categories will be released next month.
