Norwegian Breakaway

October 2016 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda

The cruise that wasn't

This cruise never happened.  Actually we did leave N.Y. on Oct. 10 bound for Port Canaveral and Nassau Bahamas instead of Bermuda due to Hurricanes Matthew and Nicole.  I would not have chosen those ports as alternatives especially since there really is not a lot to do in Port Canaveral and Nassau was devastated from Hurricane Matthew (they offered no excursions in Nassau and we left after 5 hours in port).  Norwegian did not give us an option to leave the ship in New York.  Right up to October 9 departure, they were still planning on going to Bermuda, and it was either take the new itinerary or leave it.  I was told you should have known that there would be no refund or option to rebook when you signed your contract.  This was our 6th Norwegian cruise, and it will probably be our last.Angry

Norwegian Star

January 2016 - Norwegian Star to Caribbean - Western

Wonderful Western Caribbean cruise

This was our 4th Norwegian cruise, and it was probably our most relaxing.  From the time we boarded until we departed the ship, we enjoyed every minute.  The food was delicious and healthy (we ate exclusively at the Market Buffet so we could get exactly what we wanted), the weather was gorgeous, and the ports we visited were very interesting.  Also the entertainment was top notch every night.  We love to walk, and so we were able to jog 2 miles every day on the jogging deck.  Nothing like being out at sea and breathing that fresh air.  The crew and service on board the Norwegian Star are fantastic.  We especially liked having the Ultimate Beverage Package since we are avid wine drinkers.  All in all, we had a fabulous time and look forward to our next Norwegian outing.

MatthewMalok's Tips

Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Make sure you have travel insurance that allows you to cancel. And make sure you cancel 72 hours before departure otherwise it's no good.
Belize City, Belize - You need to take the tender from the ship into port. We didn't spend much time here.
Cozumel, Mexico - The Cozumel museum downtown was very interesting and only $4.
Norwegian Star Norwegian Star - Nice to be mid ship. Nice smooth ride. Loved walking on Deck 7, but wish smoking were totally prohibited. Maybe Norwegian should have a total ban on smoking on certain ships.
