Great time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Jan 16, 2015

We had a great time on the cruise.  Other than the inordinately large amount of people on the cruise it was a good time.  Liquor may have been slightly cheaper but that would be a complaint anywhere.

Breakaway Cruise - 12 Day

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Jan 04, 2015

We truly enjoyed our cruise.  We met a lot of great people, and found the benefits of the all-inclusive package was fantastic.  Cagney's had wonderful food, and Moderno was also good (the grilled pineapple was worth the cost if we had to pay for dinner).  We had some great service.  I do think the ship is a little too big, and the lack of an elevator in the middle of the ship makes getting around more difficult.  Also, the stops at San Juan seem like a waste.  The ships from NY usually don't arrive there until 3 or 4 and there really is not a lot to do (other than to go to Senor Frogs).  Overall, it was a good time and we would do this cruise again.

Loud praises for Norwegian Breakaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Jan 04, 2015

We always enjoy Norwegian and their freestyle cruises. We have been on the Breakaway before and have recommended it. Our only reason for withholding our usual five star rating for this trip is that the decibel levels at both the outdoor and indoor venues have been significantly increased. While discussing this with friends, during disembarkation, several others in line agreed. The accommodations, service, and food were excellent, as usual. Senior staff were particularly courteous and would inquire as to our satisfaction. When my wife made a casual observation regarding our room, the change was made before we returned that evening and a tray of hors d'oeuvres, with a note, were delivered the next day.

Happy Norwegian Cruiser

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Dec 28, 2014

Me and the kids had a blast on the Norwegian Breakaway. It was a huge ship with lots of things to do for the kids and adults. I would definitely recommend this ship to anyone that wants to have fun. The only thing is that the elevators are very slow. But otherwise I would love to go back on this ship.Happy

Mixed feelings

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Dec 28, 2014

We had a great time with our kid and grandkids. Plenty for the kids to do, the kids loved the water slides and Sponge Bob swimming area, the bowling and arcade games and the kids academy on 12.  We were impressed with The dining rooms. They felt more like very nice restaurants not the usual huge dining rooms on most lines and most were included in the "free" dining. The Manhattan dining room had a nice band with a dance floor in the middle for dining enjoyment. We had a balcony, the room was nice but the bed was right on top of the closet very poor configuration otherwise nice room.  The Atrium on 6 was awful!  There was a bar, guest services, excursion reservations, the Internet area all in one area surrounding a seating area used daily for entertainment like dances, games, movies, demonstrations etc.  There wasn't enough seating it was very loud and crowded!  The Internet also sold megabites not minutes! Who ever heard of that?  We did however have a nice time.

breakaway cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Dec 28, 2014

We have sailed with Norwegian quite a few times & this is by far the worst cruise we have ever been on.The food in the main restaurants was average at best.The buffet food was terrible. service disgusting, no tables cleared, over run with children & most of the time the food was cold & tasted burnt.We decided to splash out & pay to eat in the Italian restaurant only to find the dishes were exactly the same as the included restaurants....save your money & don't bother!.

Although our cabin was kept resonably clean we never once saw our housekeeper!!!The ship it self is really beautiful with impressive shopping but the crew seem to nickel & dime everywhere.EVERYTHING costs extra....but they use clever words like "free" & "complimentary" when it should read "included".The crew have no control over the passengers...especially people with children.....they are everywhere including the casino &

adult areas only.When we complained we were told there was nothing they could do as the passengers report the crew as being rude!!!!

We will NOT be travelling Norweigan for a while...not until they get there act together!!!!

The ship was great, entering and exiting the ship was painless. Getting around the ship wasn't difficuilt I was able to learn the ship lay out in less then two days with help of the daily activity news paper.  the food was great and the service was great.  I had the unlimited wine and caps.  my head was nice the whole trip.

Popular tips for Norwegian Breakaway.


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.
