Meyer Werft Cuts Steel for Norwegian Breakaway

Meyer Werft cut the first steel for Norwegian Cruise Line's first Project Breakaway ship today at their facility in Papenburg (Germany). The computerized plasma torch took four minutes to cut the the plate which will become part of a support in the double bottom in the middle of Norwegian Breakaway.

On hand for the event was Bernard Meyer (left), a Managing Director of Meyer Werft, and the man with his finger on the button, Kevin Sheehan, NCL's CEO.
