We spent an awful lot of time working hard to secure a visit aboard Norwegian Breakaway and communicated with Norwegian Cruise Line many times.
In the end we were invited aboard by the Master of Norwegian Breakaway, Captain Evans Hoyt, who which we corresponded with via social media.
Captain Evans Hoyt was very interested in our drawing of Norwegian Breakaway we were delighted when he invited Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester and his father Brain Cotterill to visit Norwegian Breakaway in Southampton on April 30th 2013.
Harry and father took the decision to travel to Southampton the day prior to the visit, on April 29th 2013 and stayed overnight in Christchurch, which is nearby to Southampton. On the way they stopped off at Mayflower Park in Southampton to see Norwegian Breakaway before boarding the vessel the following morning.
Boarding the vessel on Deck 5, Harry and his father made their way to the Atrium on Deck 6 where they visited Guest Services and got a plan of the ship to help find their way around.
They also had a quick look at Splash Academy on Deck 12 & 13, which is one of the largest children’s facilities currently at sea.
" Norwegian Breakaway was a truly spectacular ship and it was a great honour for my father and I to both personally visit the brand new vessel during her inaugural visit to Southampton on April 30th 2013. We were very impressed by Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest addition to the fleet and proud to be part of their inaugural celebrations."
" We would both like to extend our utmost thanks and appreciation to the Master of Norwegian Breakaway, Captain Evans Hoyt for his assistance and help in securing our visit aboard. It was a true pleasure and honour to be able to meet with him on the bridge and officially present our especially assigned drawing of Norwegian Breakaway to him."
