Great Time!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

The staff was awesome, the food was good, the facilities were nice and clean.  I’d definitely cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway again.  I traveled with my mother and 3 year old son and both had a good time.  There was something for all of us to enjoy.  I especially loved Rock of Ages - Broadway entertainment at sea.

Bermuda

Beautiful Island.  Beautiful people.  Excellent experience and the ship and staff were awesome.   Take out life insurance before getting on the Pink Bus.  Just Kidding but you will fear for your life.  Plenty to do once you get a feel for the island.

Best family vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

My family and I took the seven night cruise from New York and I have to say that it was the best vacation that my family has ever taken.

 

To start with the rooms were nice and since the ship is new therefore it is very clean.  The staff working on the boat and in the cruise terminal were all friendly and happy to help.  

 

On board the food was good, because we were traveling with my son we didn't get to try too many of the specialty restaurants.  

 

My seven year old loved going to Splash Academy (their kids club) which gave my wife and I some time alone on the ship.

 

Once on the island, Bermuda was beautiful and the people were happy to help you out however they could.  We loved it so much that we have booked the same trip for next year.

Nice relaxing week

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

Cirque show was amazing. Restaurant good was usually good, but some disappointments. Service was lacking in many areas. Had to wait for drink refills, forgot sides, etc.  Splash Academy Kids Club was awesome! My 9 & 10 year old begged to go back each day, leaving us a lot of time without the responsibility of children! Loved the itinerary...spending 3 days at one location was great, flexible, and less expensive, as we could still go back to the boat to eat. LOVED Bermuda...very clean, friendly, and lots to do.

A good time was had by all!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

Best part of cruise was specialty dining (Cagney's and LeBistro), and wonderfully attentive staff (room steward, bartenders, etc.).  Needs improvement:  need more bartenders on pool decks, more sun deck area (zip line takes up too much room), have a Customs Agent/s on board to help with bottleneck of getting off the boat, add another pool (very crowded)

OK Cruise -- nothing spectacular

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

I thought their ultimate beverage package is a scam.  I got the beverage package email after I booked a mini suite and when I asked them to add it to my cruise, I was told that since this was an "MX" category mini suite (which means I'll take any mini suite that is available) We didn't qualify for the package.  What a crock!  So much for bonus offers.  Also, I'm not sure why it took so long to get to Bermuda and a day less on the return.  An extra day at sea isn't what I want on a Bermuda cruise.

Bermuda is beautiful.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

The Horseshoe Bay Beach is awesome.

The island of Bermuda is green and beautiful.

The ship NCL Breakaway is comfortable and lots to do while on board.

Overall a great week for us.

Will recommend to friends.

Beautiful ship, beautifull Island

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:

The cabins had plenty of storage space and the bed was very comfortable.  We purchase the week pass to the Thermal Suite and enjoy it very much.

The staff was not as friendly as our past cruises on other NCL ships.

Great Cruise, Great Time

The entire cruise was wonderful.  Great food, great entertainment, and a great companion (my wife).  We had a wonderful time.  This ship is as much a destination as is Bermuda!

O'Sheen's Irish bar is the best place to go for an enjoyable sit down breakfast. It is also great for lunch, where you can even be served at the bar!

Loved all the restaurants on board including the Buffet! Lots to do for kids.

If there's a show or restaurant you really don't want to miss, make a reservation well in advance online, or you might miss out. Also, be prepared to spend more onboard than you might have on other cruiselines.
