Norwegian Breakaway

December 2016 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

Great cruise

Service and friendliness of staff on board Breakaway was fantastic.  The ship was clean and decorated beautifully for Christmas.  This was my husband's and my Christmas present to each other and we treated ourselves to a stay in the Haven - the Spa Balcony cabin.  The cabin was roomy, bathroom was the nicest I have ever seen on a cruise ship, and we had everything we needed.  Butler and concierge service was top-notch.  The Haven dining room was just as good as any of the specialty restaurants.  All in all, a very Merry Christmas present to ourselves!

Norwegian Jewel

July 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaskan cruise - WOW

Alaska wasn't that high on my bucket list, but my husband was definitely interested, so off we go on the Norwegian Jewel for the 7-night Alaska cruise out of Seattle.  It was way beyond our expectations.  The scenery was magnificent!  We even saw a whale breach from our aft suite balcony -- too bad we didn't have our camera at-the-ready.  The ship was clean, service was impeccable.  We had the ultimate dining package so we ate in the specialty restaurants.  Our favorite was Le Bistro (with Cagney's running a close second).  As suites guests, we also had breakfast and lunch available to us in Moderno and it was quite good.  I cannot speak to the main dining room or the Garden Cafe on this trip because we did not eat there.  Our butler was very accommodating, bringing us breakfast twice in our suite and dinner from La Cucina once.  

All in all, one of the best cruises we have ever taken!

diannholtgarges's Tips

Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - O'Sheehan's was my least favorite place to eat. Noisy, crowded, service wasn't great and food was mediocre. Ocean Blue, on the other hand, was my favorite place to eat. Yes, it was a specialty restaurant but the food was superb and service impeccable.
Victoria, British Columbia - Day we were there it was rainy and cloudy so not ideal for sightseeing. We did see Butchart Gardens, which were beautiful, even in the rain.
Seattle, Washington - Dinner at the top of the Space Needle in the revolving restaurant a must!
