Default 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.

Interesting; I don't think I've ever heard of a ship with an American Captain--except maybe the Independence of American Hawaii Cruises. But your reasoning makes perfect sense.

Royal Caribbean has had an American Captain. William Wright was the first Captain of the Freedom of the Seas in 2006 and then he was also the first Captain for the Oasis of the Seas.
