Norwegian Breakaway Float OutWorkers at Germany's Meyer Werft shipyard floated the 4,000-passenger Norwegian Breakaway out of its construction shed to finish the final details on the New York-bound ship.

The Breakaway is expected to debut in early May, doing seven-day New York-Bermuda cruises. The 146,600-gross-ton ship has been under construction in Papenburg since September 2011.

Delivery is scheduled in 57 days.

The Breakaway is the largest cruise ship ever constructed in Germany. It is expected to start its journey down the Ems River toward the ocean on March 10.
