Fireworks Over Brooklyn and NYC, Wednesday, May 8 -- It's Norwegian Cruise Lines and the Rockettes

Fireworks will be exploding over Liberty Island on Wednesday, May 8, 8:30 p.m., visible from Brooklyn, New York City and New Jersey. And here's why:

Norwegian Cruise Line's Peter Max-decorated cruise ship 'Norwegian Breakaway' has arrived in NYC and is being christened by The Rockettes as the ship’s official Godmothers.

More than 4,000 guests will take part in the ship’s christening ceremony at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.  A live webcast will be available here.  Fireworks will light up the skyline near the Statue of Liberty at approximately 8:30 p.m.

We swear we are not making this up . . . Norwegian Cruise Line is the designated “Official Cruise Line” of the Rockettes and Radio City Music Hall, and the “Official Partner” of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Two Rockettes will be present on board during the first six sailings of Norwegian Breakaway, and then on the first sailing of each month thereafter.

"Active guests" can get fit with the dancers at morning sessions hosted by the Rockettes in the ship’s spa, as well as learn the Rockettes signature choreography in dance classes. Rockettes-inspired spa packages are available on all sailings  (facials, deep tissue massages and conditioning hair treatments). There is a “Rockettes celebratory exhibit” in the ship library.

Guests can order a “Rockettini” cocktail from any of Norwegian Breakaway’s bars and lounges. (There are 28 dining options on the ship.) They can also take home authentic Rockettes-themed merchandise, available for purchase in the ship’s shopping complex.
