Another major design element of Norwegian Breakaway is a three-deck-high atrium called 678 Ocean Place that will have many of the restaurants, bars and amusement areas opening onto it. Some of the Waterfront's venues will run halfway through the ship so that they will open onto both the Waterfront and into Ocean Place.
The casual Italian restaurant, La Cucina, is one of those venues with two "fronts."
It has this "front" on the Waterfront with al fresco dining.
The video below puts it all together with the walkthrough portions helping to demonstrate the flow from inside the ship to outside.
