March 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas
I've travelled Carnival 9 times and Royal Caribbean 2 times. This is the first time cruising Norwegian. The dancers were good and the one solo guy (Arvan) was excellent. Other than those two, the entertainment was not good at all. I paid for a dinner show which I've never done on any other cruise because they didn't charge for the same type of dinner show and it was horrible. The show was average at best and the meal (that I paid for) was the worst meal I had on the ship. The food menu was small and the same menu for 3 different dining rooms. As I am easy to please with food I ate everything I ordered but the food on the other cruise lines was better. I did not like the freestyle dining because I had a different waiter every night. On all of my other cruises I had the same waiter and helper for the entire cruise and they really took care of me and we built a personal relationship. There were so many things that Norwegian charged for that my other cruises didn't. I still relaxed and made the best of it but I would never cruise Norwegian again. Life is about options and I opt to cruise with Carnival and Royal Caribbean. I would not recommend Norwegian to a friend.
