Norwegian Breakaway

February 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

Big Boat; Bad Weather; Still Pretty Good

We have cruised 8 times before, 5 of which were on Norwegian. We tried the Breakaway because we love cruising out of NYC and the Great Stirrup Cay day is our favorite. We prefer a smaller boat (already booked for the Gem next February) and the weather did not cooperate so we missed Great Stirrup Cay. It's also hard to determine whether I would have preferred the bigger ship if the weather was better (likely yes, but I'm not sure). That being said, we still had a good time. I would like to give this 3.5 stars, but that's not an option.

ManhattanMom's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Snorkeling with Bahama Divers (local joint which mostly serves hotels, not cruise ships)
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Eating at 6/6:15 prevented any wait in the main dining rooms. Burger joint (cannot remember name) was great (albeit a long wait - but worth it). If you are prone to seasickness, the large ship was great for not rocking too much.
