February 2016 - 7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway
Mostly a good time
We just got back and have to say the staff was excellent. They were very friendly and accommodating. The food was mostly good, with a few hits and a few misses. For example we found the NY strip steak to be fatty and chewy but the Prime Rib (only offered on the last night in the Manhattan room) was much better. Apparently there have been cutbacks in the kitchen, no more shrimp cocktail or escargot.
The activities staff was energetic and made us laugh with their antics. They kept us entertained with all the games and contests.
It happened to be the week school was out in Montreal so the ship was loaded with French Canadians. For the most part they were nice but some bad apples spoiled the whole bunch, especially the bratty kids who don't know how to use an elevator (let us off please before you barge in). There was even a fistfight during the cruise! The cruise line can't help that but just a word of warning to fellow travelers to check the school calendars before booking!
We had a 12th deck balcony cabin and I recommend that you book any deck except the 12th because that is where the kids camp Splash Academy is located and we heard tons of kids running and screaming on the way to camp.
Overall it was a fun trip and I was limited to the times we could go. Otherwise I would NOT have gone when Montreal was off from school.
