Luscious chocolate and vanilla cannolis, cream-filled lobster tails, and individual goodies such as strawberry cheesecake, chocolate truffle and tiramisu …. Sound yummy? These are just some of the delectable desserts that you can find on the Norwegian Breakaway!
Norwegian Cruise Line announced that Master Baker Buddy Valastro, star of the popular TLC television series “Cake Boss” will open an extension of his family business, Carlo’s Bake Shop, on the new Norwegian Breakaway. In addition to the onboard bakery, Carlo’s will offer cupcake-decorating classes, where guests can learn some of Valastro’s tricks of the trade.
“The New York area is known for its outstanding bakeries,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “As with all features of this new incredible ship, we wanted to bring not just a taste of the region to our guests, but the very best out there. Buddy is known as the ultimate baker, so we knew he was the best choice for our new bakery on Norwegian Breakaway. We are thrilled to welcome Buddy to the Norwegian family.”
“Spending time with family is one of the most important things. A cruise is a wonderful opportunity for a family to relax and have fun together and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to bring Carlo’s aboard this fantastic cruise ship,” said Buddy Valastro. “I am thrilled to begin this partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line and open Carlo’s Bake Shop on Norwegian Breakaway, the ultimate ship for families.”
The Norwegian Breakaway will be the largest ship ever to homeport in New York City. The 4,000-passenger vessel will debut in early May 2013, when she will begin weekly summer seven-day cruises to Bermuda. From October 2013 through April 2014, the ship will offer voyages from the heart of Manhattan to the Bahamas & Florida and the Southern Caribbean.
