The start of Portland Port's cruise season has been a spectacular one; the first ship was the 20th visit by a Phoenix Reisen vessel. They are the first cruise line to reach this milestone at Portland Port so to commemorate such a momentous occasion, the port commissioned a special hand carved Portland stone plaque that will be presented to the cruise line.

It is not only the Norwegian Breakaway's inaugural call to Portland Port, but she is also the largest ship to ever call at Portland Port.
