Norwegian Breakaway Gets American Captain
Norwegian today announced that one of the two rotating Captains of Norwegian Breakaway will be Evans Hoyt. Captain Hoyt is a 1982 graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and was born in Morocco in 1960 where he father was serving as a U.S. diplomat. He was previously Captain of the Pride Of America in Hawaii.
No doubt Norwegian management liked that in keeping with the NY theme of the ship, the Merchant Marine Academy is just across the bay from the Bronx and next to Queens.
