Norwegian Breakaway

March 2016 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

nice ship, fair food, poor ports

I sailed on The Breakaway 3/6/16.  My cabin (aft balcony) was great.  There were 2 lounge chairs and 2 regular chairs on the balcony.  However, every night around 10:30 the outside party on the top deck would start.  The bass in the speakers made the room vibrate.  This went on to 1 or 1:30. Not good. The ship is well laid out and you rarely ran into crowds of people. 

The specialty restaurants were excellent but the regular ones did not have much choice and the food was bland.

My brother enjoyed the water slides and ropes course.  I was disappointed to only get into a hot tub once due to crowding, esp on sea days.

I felt that Cape Canaveral was a dud. If you didn't spend the money for excursions there wasn't much to do.  The NCL island is well developed and comfortable but the almost $13 pina colada on the beach was a bit much.

The last stop is Nassau.  You don't have to buy the excursions- take a taxi for $4 to Atlantis and enjoy the free things there. You can also take a $20 horse and carriage ride on the pier.  Of course the ship doesn't tell you this.

The ship was clean and comfortable.  It was very stable in the water. The crew was pleasant. It was disappointing to learn that room service costs $7.95 a time. That took away from some of the usual fun in ordering in and eating in the room.

The TV selection is poor unless you want to pay $9.95 to rent a movie.  This nickel and diming is the pits.

auntcw's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Skip the expensive excursions. For $4 one way you can take a taxi to Atlantis where there is a lot to see for free. Or, spend $20 for a horse and carriage ride in Nassau
Port Canaveral, Florida - This port was a bust. The gangway is incredibly long (open the rear one people!) and the terminal building walk is even longer If you don't pony up for an excursion prepare to be bored
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - The hot tubs are very crowded on sea days. Try to get specialty restaurants included in your fee. they are terrific.
