The new cabin design on Norwegian Cruise Lines two new vessels has been revealed and named as Project Breakaway.
According to the Mirror newspaper the new cruise ships which are to be constructed at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Germany, will each carry approximately 4,000 passengers and this week's announcement was about the 1,024 balcony cabins and 238 mini-suites.
"The overall design theme for Project Breakaway's staterooms is 'modern boutique hotel meets the sea.' We wanted an ambiance that is warm and inviting, and has a very contemporary feel with clean, modern lines.
"We also want to maximise the use of space within the staterooms, so our guests are as comfortable as possible and storage space is well planned throughout."
The cabins have been drawn up by London designers Priestmangood and working alongside Tillberg Design of Sweden, slot together with a wide section for the bed and a narrower area for the sitting space.
Each balcony stateroom onboard the new ships will have a king-size bed (which can be split into twins) with a leather headboard. There's a lighted recess above the bed to hold books, magazines, iPads and Kindles - which every passenger will no doubt travel with. A 26 inch television is mounted on the wall and tilts so it can be seen from the bed or sofa.
The bathrooms in the balcony cabins will have plenty of storage space and a decent-sized basin - neither of which was part of the design of the Epic cabins - and a "private shower" with a shaving bar.
The mini-suites will have oversized spa-like showers with a rain-shower head and multiple jets, along with a separate handheld shower head.
With these new cabin features, would it encourage you to take your cruise holiday with NCL Cruises?
