January 2015 - 12 Night Southern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway
Great Ship, Great Time!
We had an excellent experience on the Norwegian Breakaway. We had previously cruised and enjoyed our experience with Carnival, but this ship had a lot more to offer as far as on-board activities, dining options, etc. Our cruise director, Julie, was very welcoming and presented a variety of excellent shows/entertainment. Some of our favorites were Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor, and the Cirque specialty show (which wasn't free, but was worth the extra cost).
While there were 24-7 delicious (and complimentary) food options, the specialty restaurants were impressive, especially Teppanyaki which we dined at twice it was so good!
We booked excursions for 5 of the 6 stops through Norwegian, and all worked out well logistics-wise and were a ton of fun. Our favorites included ziplining excursion in Saint Thomas and the seaturtle/shipwreck snorkel & beach excursion in Barbados.
Our only complaints were the location of our room (at the very front of the ship which was very susceptible to waves and ship-related noise) and that some of the prices on-board were a little high (specifically drinks and photographs).
Overall, a great experience and we can't wait for the next Norwegian cruise!
