Breakaway

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

I definitely would recommend this cruise. The only fall back is the pool. It is too small and too crowded. The specialty restaurants are awesome. The regular restaurants are okay. Definitely take the alcohol package it is well worth it. They didn't have many outdoor theme dinners as they did on the Dawn.

Good Times

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

The Breakaway is much larger than other ships we sailed on.  The food was great.  Service was good. Room very nice.  Bermuda is always beautiful with friendly people.  Entertainment in the ship's theater was a little "overboard" (pun intended) and not for everyone. Especially with so many children on board. If you have to purchase the unlimited drink package it may not be worth the expense. The over 4000 passengers make the ship very noisy. There is no quiet place outdoors to sit and read a book.  Seating by the pool is limited and people place towels on chairs early so none are left by 7:30 in the morning.

HAD A GREAT TIME ATE SO MUCH FOOD IT WAS GREAT.

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

This was my second cruise, I had a great time with my family. We were 13 altogether. Ten adults two children, the kids loved it. The food was the best and I ate so much hope that I did not gain any weight. Also the ship did not rock at all I was afraid that I would gotten sea sick I am very happy about that. Next time I will use NCL for sure.

Great Cruise!!

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

We had a blast. People pleasant. Shore excursions awesome. Great weather. Food really good. Teppanyaki awesome both times. Food is delicious and the show is always fun to watch that they put on. Absolutely loved rock of ages show!!!! Natalie Weiss was good but nothing like rock of ages. I didn't like the fact that we could only go to the comedy show 1 time. I think it should be first come first serve. I would have gone every night to the adult show. I'm not waiting on the side to see if I may or may not get in on the standby line. ridiculous. It took getting used to the key card controlling the lights in the room....kinda funny. The beverage package was perfect. No cares in the world, just sign and drink and its all paid for ahead of time. Well worth it!! The aristocrat catamaran with capt. Smitty and Baxter was very cool. Nice places they took us. Boy can he sail..... in and around all those reefs. Ray and John were great when we went scuba diving. Very relaxed and calm teaching us. It was only my second time. So many cool fish at snorkel Park too when we were being casual on the first day. Nice and close to the ship. I thought it was great to be able to get on and off the ship whenever. We could have stayed off the ship for three days if we wanted...very cool. Not cool was the stores closing at 5:00. I've got $$ to spend, whats up with that...That was a downer. I wouldn't want to waste a beautiful sunny day shopping but after I enjoyed my sunny day, I would have loved to go shopping. Oh, Cagneys was out of this world once again. Lets just say I had my fair share of filet mignon. LOL. OK I think I rambled on enough. Thumbs up all around!! Oh, Donnie our agent rocks!!

BREAK AWAY... DISAPPOINTMENT

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

Disappointed in this ship and the cruise line.  Disembarked earlier with no explanation as to why.  Just received an email several days prior. Poor Communication!   The pool was very overcrowded.  1 adult pool for over 4,000 passengers.  REALLY?  No place for teens to swim.  They have to go swim in the  feet deep pool with the 5 year olds BUT CHARGE ADULT PRICE FOR THE VACATION.  This is my second cruise with Norweigan and I AM DONE!!   Now I understand why I choose Royal Carribbean, Celebrity and Princess over you!

Relaxing

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

I liked the cruise , I just would like less al a cart costs. The staff is amazing and pleasant. Loved the balcony room! I liked the drink package, liked the beaches in Bermuda,not enough pools on boat. Ice cream in certain resturants cost extra, kids running down the hallways at 2:30am!

Cruise to Bermuda on NCL

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

NCL Freestyle really is just what we wanted in a cruise.  Eat where you want and when you want.  The entire staff was incredible and extremely friendly.  The entertainment was top notch and we especially loved the Howl At The Moon dueling pianos.

Just go with Carnival. Might not be as big or as glamorous - but at least they care about their passengers and not just the money they can make off of them

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.
