BREAKAWAY ACCOMPLISHED

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 30, 2014


OUR FIRST TRIP ON THE BREAKAWAY WAS VERY REWARDING.  ALTHOUGH WE ARE

ACCUSTOMED TO SMALLER SHIPS (WE WERE APPREHENSIVE) WE FOUND THE SHIP'S

PERSONNEL TO BE EFFICIENT AND HELPFUL.  THINGS WENT VERY SMOOTHLY.

THE FOOD WAS ABOVE PAR.

THE CABIN (OCEAN VIEW) WAS VERY SMALL---OUR SMALLEST EVER ---NOT EVEN A

CHAIR FOR SOMEONE WITH A BAD BACK.

If not for certain waitstaff ,asking for things offered.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


Going on a trip with two friends, neither have been on this line, I was once before but thought I would try again. Everything was going great until I read Freestyle Daily and it had stated I could have the serves of the same waiter daily (this is the reason I did not go sooner I like the same wait staff). When asking for this service everyone was great that is until I went to the dining room to try to get it. After this the hostess treated my guests and I extreamly poor. So poor that I had put a deposit down on another cruise that I actually went and pulled my future cruise credit.

My Breakaway Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


I had a wonderful time on the Breakaway. It is a beautiful ship with so many fun things to do . The crew were kind and wonderful people who catered to my every need. The food was the best I had on any other ship . I can't wait to cruise on the Breakaway again maybe sooner then I think.

Review of the Breakaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


I usually cruise with RCL and enjoy their ships very much. The Breakaway seemed overcrowded, I believe the layout makes the ship seem smaller. Way too many charging activities, makes me feel like I am being hustled. Food and service was good for most restaurants, the churrasco place was nasty and the service was poor. For such a big ship I believe it rocks way too much. The rooms are very small but bathrooms are very nice. The shows are good, I enjoyed Burn the Floor and Second City, I did not like Rock of Ages(not into that kind of thing). The best thing about NCL is the freestyle dining, but I would still choose the Oasis or Allure any day.

Wonderful vacation!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


We have been on 2 other cruise lines and this was the most fun! We loved freestyle dining and dressing more casually. There were lots of activities so we were never bored. We really loved Nassau. It was very picturesque and the beaches were beautiful. The Straw Market was great, especially if you know how to bargain. We enjoyed the outside restaurants and bars on the promanade deck. And the most important thing of all- the service was excellent! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the food was not quite as good as on Holland America.

Not what I expected

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2014


No complaints about any of the crew members or the level of service that was provided.  That was fantastic.

I think that handling 4000 passengers comes with its challenges.  First off, only 4 complimentary restaurants, not 5 like Norwegian states.  Restaurants Taste and Savor are not different restaurants at all....they are the same.  Same menu same kitchen...Same Same Same.  Because there are only 4 complimentary restaurants, wait times are long.  When your hungry, so is everyone else.  If you don't feel like waiting then you have a ton of options at restaurants with a cover charge.

Compared to other cruises, the entertainment was not that great.  I thought the entertainment staff lacked "energy".  The on board game shows were a little dull.

Stormy weather----poor communication from the deck-captain---tooo many pasengers

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2014


Never again a cruise with more than 2500 pasengers. The Shows were great. The staff was excelent, very accomodating, friendly and helpful. The captain appeared to be very impressed with himself. My cousine and I are German and....No German material on board....I had to translate everything. At the end of the cruise the New York City Tour was canceled and absolutely NO effort was made to help with the connection to any of the Airports. I had booked this Cruise directly through the Norwegian Cruise Line website and I dont think that I will be on another cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line.

Burgunda Probert and Hannelore Lombardi, Colorado and Germany

Tips for Norwegian Breakaway

The ship is BIG. Be prepared for that. The shows were very good, especially the Cirque show/dinner. Ice Bar wanted $20 to enter. Included two drinks. Most people only stay 1/2 hr. We didn't try it. Cagney's was, as always, excellent. Sushi Bar was excellent. Limited hours though. 5 stars.

Go to the blues club, that was the height of my trip

Book your shows and reservations early. There is a lot to do but the shows can fill up quickly. The premium restaurants are worth the nominal cost and the Circ show was excellent

If you want privacy from kids and craziness at main pool area sign up for VIBE

Go online and book everything ahead of time!

go to regular dining first night for lobster

Early morning (buffet opens at 6 AM) in the Garden Cafe is the most relaxing, beautiful way to start your day. No crowds, no lines, hot fresh coffee, sun shining off the water....gorgeous.

If you're looking for sun, and not traveling with children, the decks above the pool deck are some of the nicest and quietest! Without a doubt, the best show onboard was Slam Allen in Fat Cats!

Watch the departure from NYC and get great views of the Statue of Liberty on the way out while dining in Blu!

Dine in Garden Café for breakfast early, best seating availability.

Breakaway you are the most beautiful giant ship in all its glory !

Reserve restaurants and other shipboard activities early because space is very limited...

Plan the time for the shows and reservations for dinner. If you want to avoid waiting in line at the restaurants, make reservations as soon as you get to the ship even those included in your package. They get full quickly - specially times between 6 and 8 p.m.

The Garden Cafe is a ZOO at breakfast, and often at lunch. Make sure you like small children and want to be with hundreds of them, on a confined vessel. Note there are FEW public areas to just relax and talk because public spaces like on other ships are now money making venues!

O'SHeehan's for breakfast. Table service, food cooked to order and avoid the chaos of the Garden Buffet.

Plenty of lounge sun spots. If you want to be by pool, like all ship get there early. But, plenty of acceptable places. Unique was fireworks one night (though only 10 minutes, tops).

If you drink soft drinks/soda or bottled water, be sure to bring it with you otherwise you pay restaurant prices on the ship per glass.

be sure to try breakfast delivered to your room. Don't hold back on having fun with the many activities.

Try Deck 16...the best breakfast if you don't mine being a little warm. The venue is open and not air conditioned.

To ensure finishing dinner in time to attend a scheduled show, make a reservation at even the complimentary diningrooms.
