Norwegian Breakaway

June 2017 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda

A little bit of a disappointment

I was on this same exact cruise 2 years ago and had a very different experience.  The ship itself is very nice, but the service was lacking this time around. 

 

I went on this cruise with a large group of 14 family members, which included 4 children under the age of 14.  I found it ridiculous that only having one main pool, children under 18 were not allowed and had to only swim in the kid's pool, however, were allowed in 2 of the hot tubs in the adult area.  

 

I also found that there was not a lot of activities for families to do and most of the parties on the ship started at 10:30, when most children are sleeping.  They also played rated R movies at 7pm but put on G rated movies at 10:30 or later.

 

The service or lack there of, also stood out to me.  The waiters and waitresses in the main dining rooms were not very friendly and almost got annoyed when you asked them a question about a menu item or why the food was taking so long to get to us. 

 

I honestly feel as though this cruise would be better for just couples or groups of less that 7 or 8 people.

 

Bermuda was absolutely beautiful and the dock area was great and very convenient with lots of good shopping , bus and ferry services, and very friendly people.

Carnival Vista

March 2017 - Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Southern

Fun, relaxing vacation

My cruise on the Carnival Vista was a great experience.  Embarkation was pretty easy and our Sail & Sign cards were delivered to our room, which was ready fairly quickly. 

 

We had a Havana Balcony with Lanai room.  The Lanai was nice, but to me, not worth it because it did lack privacy and we hardly used it.  If I was to do this ship again, I would definitely stay in the Havana area again but just do a regular balcony room.

 

The first day was kind of crazy and there were lines everywhere.  After that, you did still feel as though it was a bit crowded, but not as bad.  All the food was EXCELLENT and we didn't have one bad dinner.  The only complaint I have is the buffet breakfast on deck 10.  The eggs were always cold and it lacked variety.  Other than than my favorite places to eat were the Blue Iguana taco area, Pig and Anchor, and also the Italian restaurant was amazing- great food for only $15 a person.

 

The Havana pool area was fabulous.  It was never crowded, we always found chairs and it was very relaxing.  The bar area could have had more choices for drinks and only once did a waiter come over to use to ask if we wanted drinks.  Other than that, I highly recommend staying in that part of the ship if you prefer a quieter, more relaxing cruise experience. 

 

All 4 stops we had were great.  We went to Grand Turk, La Romana, Curacao, and Aruba.  The tours we took were of good quality for the price.

 

I think the best part of our cruise was our cruise director, Mike.  He was so energetic, friendly, funny, and made the cruise A LOT of fun.  I would highly recommend going on any cruise with him as the cruise director.

 

Disembarkation was also very easy and we were off the ship by 8:30 am and headed to the airport.

 

Overall, this cruise was very enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing 8 days.

Norwegian Breakaway

June 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda

Awesome Vacation

My boyfriend and I took this cruise on June 7th to Bermuda.  This ship is amazing and has so much to offer. We had a balcony room and while it was smaller than what I have experienced on other ships, the room was clean and pretty spacious. We purchased the dining packaging and found the the food to be excellent worth the price. Bermuda was a great port of call and there was a lot to do on the island. The only thing Norwegian can improve on is the service towards passengers as the crew wasn't as friendly as Royal Caribbean or Carnival and the adult pool should be only for ADULTS!

Beachgirl0481's Tips

Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - My best advise is to make any kind of entertainment reservations either prior to going on the cruise or as soon as you step foot on the ship. If you don't, please don't expect to have much available to you.
