Default Breakaway Sailing Into New York

Has NCL released any information on what time Breakaway is coming into New York Harbor on May 7? I would like to go down to Hoboken to watch it come up the river, if possible. I'm assuming that the NYFD will do some sort of Water Cannon salute or something, right?

Not sure how accurate it is, but awhile ago the NCL facebook page mentioned it would be coming into the harbor around 4 a.m. on the 7th.

Do you think the New York Harbor cam will follow her in, like they do for cruise ships that sail out?

Hi johnnypiano. Spoke with a NCL agent who told me that Breakaway will be coming in at 8am on My 7. Call NCL to see if you can see if that is correct.

Ohh, would LOVE to know this. I work in SI and my office has a beautiful view of the VZ bridge/harbor and would be able to see this perfectly. BUT, I would only be able to see
coming under the VZ and about another 5 or so minutes after that. I guess I would need to get in earlier, which isn't going to happen LOL

Maybe they'll have some more exact times once she's underway on the TA. I'd hate to get down there and find out I'd missed it!

The Breakaway will be docked and ready for Customs by 8 am on May 7. It's pretty likely that it *will* enter the harbor around 4 am.

On The Schedule it is shown as arriving at 8am at Manhattan Cruise Terminal, However If I remember correctly so did NCL Epic back in 2010, but in that case we arrived at about 9am but were unable to disembark because of the lifeboat situation until past lunchtime. There were however plenty of activity watching the lifeboats getting removed prior to docking.

I'd say that is more accurate. Seems that ships are dockside around 6 am much of the time with similar schedules.

The powers that be at NCL and Manhattan Cruise Terminal, had not realised that The Norwegian Epic Did not fit the berth with the overhanging Lifeboats attached. They did try but it was not to be until they had been detached.

That is why the Manhattan Cruise Terminal has now had the new modern adjustable gangways and expanded pier aprons to cope with the new generation cruise ships.

Any updates here? I've read from some on the ship that the captain is taking the ship a little faster than originally planned (~20 knots). Has anyone on the ship received any estimates of time into the harbor?
