Speaking aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s new 1,062 ft Norwegian Breakaway, which will sail out of the terminal on Manhattan’s West Side, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg promised the leaders of Bermuda and The Bahamas—both of whom were in the audience—that he would be spending much more time on their islands once his mayoralty ends on December 31.

One of the biggest cruise ships ever built, the Norwegian Breakaway, received a New York-style send-off at an entertainment-studded christening ceremony in the city. Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie and Bermuda Premier Craig Cannonier both spoke at the christening.

The 40th Independence Anniversary Committee announced yesterday that the 40-day Independence Countdown will be launched in Rawson Square at 6:00 pm May 31, 2013.
