Another Broadway musical is heading to a cruise ship!

Norwegian Cruise Line late Thursday announced that the soon-to-debut Norwegian Breakaway will feature the Tony Award-nominated Rock of Ages as well as a second show that has appeared on Broadway, Burn the Floor.

The classic rock-infused Rock of Ages, which inspired the movie of the same name released earlier this month, will play in the Norwegian Breakaway's 800-seat Breakaway Theater. Burn the Floor will appear in the same theater as well as in another shipboard venue called The Manhattan Room. Rock of Ages has appeared on Broadway since early 2009. Burn the Floor's Broadway run lasted from 2009 until early 2010.

The Norwegian Breakaway also will feature larger children's areas than previous Norwegian ships and new cabin designs..
Currently under construction at a shipyard in Germany, the Norwegian Breakaway was named by a USA TODAY reader last year in a contest held here at the Cruise Log. 

It's scheduled to sail year-round from New York to Bermuda, the Bahamas, Florida and the Caribbean.
