April 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas
The Breakaway is a beautiful ship but is really too big. There is a point of diminishing returns when the size of the ship can actually have a negative affect on the operation of the ship. Boarding and disembarking become more of a problem. The dinner meal was place where assigned seating was an asset. It was a great way to meet people and strike up new friendships. The waiters became a friend of yours by the end of the trip. They knew your likes and dislikes and made your meal much more enjoyable! With open seating a new waiter every night and you are usually eating alone.
The biggest disappointment of all was the $79.00 charge the tour of the bridge and the galley. I can't tell you the feeling I had when they told me the price...OUTRAGEOUS....I have more to say but I'm a lousy typist.
