Hot Dog Cart

Ah, the familiar sights and sounds of a cruise ship: the pool, the water slide, the steel drums, the endless buffet… the hot dog cart?

Launching in May, the New York-based Norwegian Breakaway will provide one of the most ubiquitous of New York institutions for travelers:  three Sabrett hot dog carts, exactly the same as seen on the streets of New York, right down to the condiments and distinctive yellow and blue umbrellas.

Other touches from the city include a full-service seafood restaurant from New York restaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian and a hull decorated with artwork by pop artist Peter Max.

"As a New Yorker, I’ve been a fan of Sabrett’s," said Kevin Sheehan, CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, according to PSFK. "Since we are launching New York’s ship, it made complete sense to bring New York’s favorite hot dog to Norwegian Breakaway."
