Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Breakaway | Sail Date:
At this point I would say we are experienced "cruisers" as we have now been on 8 in total. This cruise was a disappointment. We knew it would be crowded as it was a school vacation week so we knew what to expect as far as long lines, impossible to get lounge chairs etc. With that being said, we found ourselves to be very bored while on the ship. On the days at sea there was hardly any entertainment going on at the main deck (no live band) just background music. There would be one guest activity at around 1:00 (ex. men's sexy legs) but after that nothing. As for night entertainment they had a few shows. I would recommend Rock of Ages. As for the food, if you are traveling with any food allergies I would say BEWARE. My son and I have a severe tree nut allergy and honestly did not feel safe with the way it was handled. You had to pre-order for the next night but even doing so when you mentioned that you had a pre-order to your waiter they seemed confused. On other cruise lines, you get to know your waiter and they understand by day two what your allergy is and make sure you are safe. There is one restaurant that claims to be nut free but it has the same boring menu (wings, burgers, salad) and after eating there a few times it gets old. All in all we had an OK time. I would cruise Norwegian again but definitely not this ship or a ship this size.
