Dispatch from the Norwegian Breakaway
- Spa cabins are actually relaxing. It’s worth splurging on the Haven Spa Suite for its whirlpool, which sits adjacent to your private balcony and overlooks the ocean. Another perk: access to the Haven (ship-within-a-ship) courtyard and… Drumroll, please... 24-hour butler service.
- The Ice Bar. It’s a hot day here in New York, and stepping into the 17-degree room was totally (ahem) cool. The best part? The Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge carved into the ice.
- The Spaitself, which is gorgeous in a heart-palpitating sort of way, with waterfalls in the hot tub and a salt cave. If I ever get to take a cruise on the Breakaway, you’ll probably find me here—recovering from my Rockette-led work-out.
