First cruise!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

It was our first 7day cruise, my fiancee and I went on and we loved it! 

The crew and staff was so nice and courteous. Our steward was amazing and we always enjoyed the warm smile they all gave us and took care of us. It was a great experience and we definitely would love to go on another cruise again. Only down fall was we would have love to have more time on bermuda the last day we had to be at the dockyard at 230pm so it was really like 2days and a half instead of 3 full days. Overall it was a great experience.

Too Kid Friendly

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship did not have a very good layout, and kids were constantly near us.  We still had a great time because of the friends we were with, however we wish the adults only areas were larger.  Bermuda was wonderful, and the food was fair.

The cruise overall was fantastic. There's something for everybody. My mom and I went - I am 22 and my mom is 50 and we both had a great time. The shows were amazing we saw rock of ages (hilarious), burn the floor, and the cirque one which included a 3 course meal for only 47$. Even though there is 4,000+ people on board it never felt crowded. There were dances every night on the top deck including 70s night, 80s night, and 90s night and a glow party which was a blast. There's 4/5 water slides and a rope course with a zip line which was fun too. The cruise director Alvin and his assistant Mandie were a lot of fun and got involved with all the activities. They had game shows every night which were hilarious. I would recommend this cruise to anyone at any age.

We really enjoyed our cruise. The ship, staff, and food were great, with many varieties & restaurants options.  The boys enjoyed the waterslides. Embarkation and Disembarkation could not have been quicker.  We recommend The Haven wholehartedly!

Constricted ship

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Let me start out by saying the overall trip to Bermuda was great. I would have given a five star rating except that the Breakaway cruise ship is big, but constricted. Its like they crammed 10 lbs. of stuff in a 5 lbs. bag. The ship was difficult to move about it was like walking through a maze. The walk areas were narrow and most became quickly congested as the passengers came out to the decks. I would do the destination again, but not on the Breakaway. We had a balcony stateroom, the only thing was that the balcony was way too small, apart of the constrictions. Literally big enough to have two chairs and a small table. You had to move them around just to get on the balcony.

Awesome Family Cruise to Bermuda!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Our favorite parts of the cruise to Bermuda on the Norwegian Breakaway was the great tasting food, the beauty of the island of Bermuda along with the included Beverage/Specialty Dining Package!

A couple of things for Norwegian to consider would be an All-night create your own pizza station like Carnival has on their ship, the Pride that goes out of Baltimore.  More activities (like Ping-pong & pools still being open to swim for example) available in the later hours for those of us that stay up late.

All said, this was our best cruise out of four cruises within the past five years!

horseback riding

snorkeling

staff was excellent

food was very good

we did not like the fact that the adult pool was 18 and over. we believe that 13 + would be ok in the adult pool.

i did not like the fact that the blackjack tables use 6 decks of cards.

pleasantly surprised at efficiency in main and specialty dining rooms. Food was great...never had to wait to be served.... pools much to small for such a large ship. 

Rock of Ages too loud and not enjoyable for me...Burn the Floor was good and singers in Atrium very good. Stateroom was fine and room steward, Gerald, was great. In fact-all service personnel were terrific. They went out of their way to accommodate.

Bermuda Cruise- Pleasant Break

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The Bermuda Cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway was a pleasant break, but I would not go on a ship of this size in the future. There were way too many people. It was like a noisy, overcrowded floating hotel. We had to wait to get into restaurants; services ranged from poor to excellent. The food was good, but not outstanding. The room was comfortable and the steward very good. Bermuda was interesting to see and I learned a great deal about the island, so it was educational, but I would not return. There are too many other places to see. If you like huge crowds, a jammed packed, noisy pool deck and standing in lines for meals and to get a drink this cruise is for you.

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!

Deck 16 burgers are great. Deck 16 no wait for breakfast omelets. Large posters on wall are the kiosks and book your activities right away. Bring ear plugs. If you go to Taste for breakfast you get a decent order from a menu breakfast.
