In addition, the "Norwegian Breakaway" sailed from the port of Miami on Sep 5 with hurricane relief supplies on board,. The goods were donated by the company and its employees, as well as by the City of Miami, Baptist Health South Florida, the 305 Gives Back Foundation, and other Miami-based organizations. The ship was heading for Nassau, Great Harbor Cay and the company's private island, Great Stirrup Cay.
