Norwegian Breakaway’s tranquil Mandara Spa and thermal suite will offer guests 22 treatment rooms with over 50 signature services for both men and women. The Breakaway will also feature the first ever salt room at sea. Popular in top spas around the world, salt room therapy has been proven to alleviate respiratory and skin ailments, strengthen the immune system, promote better sleep and have a long-term positive impact on overall lung function. Spa guests visiting the Salt Room will be immersed in a dramatic grotto setting as they enjoy this unique, indulgent and beneficial spa experience. The thermal suite will also offer a solarium, steam room, and a barber shop exclusively for men.

Fitness enthusiasts and active New Yorkers will delight in the variety of cutting-edge fitness programs offered on board Norwegian Breakaway. The ship will feature the first-ever Nexersys® interactive fight training modules at sea, offering guests the opportunity to engage in high-intensity, interval training against an avatar, through the use of a simulator. Boxing lovers will also enjoy Norwegian’s all new “Freestyle Fight Klub,” which combines Nexersys® training with a cardio boxing class, utilizing the fitness center’s 12 heavy bags.

Those who prefer biking will delight in the first-ever “Black Light Spinning” class at sea. Guests will jump on their spinning bike and pedal away to the hottest music in a room lit entirely by black lights and neon graffiti art – giving riders a once-in-a lifetime adrenaline rush. Additional fitness offerings include TRX, the biggest fitness phenomenon of 2012, kettle bell training, yoga, Pilates, reformers and body sculpting boot camp style classes.

Guests who prefer to workout independently will enjoy the latest Technogym® cardio equipment and weights. All cardio equipment synchs to iPod music devices and features a large, HD screen from which guests can watch television, follow a set training program or navigate the playlist on their iPod.
