Cake Boss Climbs Aboard Norwegian Breakaway
You've got to give Norwegian Cruise Line credit. They've spent the past few months leaking news about its forthcoming mega-ship, Norwegian Breakaway. The line is dubbing it "New York's ship" since it will home port out of Manhattan. NCL has done an excellent job of incorporating unique Big Apple touches to Breakaway and so it probably shouldn't be a surprise to hear that the Cake Boss, master baker Buddy Valastro, will bring a branch of his family-run business to the ship.
The TLC television star is best known for his shows Cake Boss, Next Great Baker, and Kitchen Boss as well as his family's famous bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey: Carlo's Bake Shop. Locals and visitors fill the bakery everyday in search of delectable treats.
The Carlo's outpost will surely become a favorite hangout on Deck 8 aboard Norwegian Breakaway when she sets sail this May. Cruisers will be able to purchase sweets like Buddy's famous Oreo Dark Chocolate Mousse and Purple Groovy Fondant cakes, Italian butter cookies, biscotti, cupcakes, cheesecake, and tiramisu.
Fun cupcake decorating classes will also be offered at the shop. And, if you're marking a birthday or anniversary during your cruise, you'll have the option of pre-ordering a specialty cake for the onboard celebration.
Valastro is happy to bring the tradition of the family bakery to Norwegian Breakaway, which he calls "the ultimate ship for families." Breakaway will sail roundtrip out of New York to Bermuda as well as the Bahamas and Florida.
