Norwegian Breakaway

July 2016 - 9 Night Eastern Caribbean & Bermuda (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

Value of NCL cruises has been steadily decreasing over the years.

The Breakaway was intended to server over 4,500 passengers, but the pools, theaters, and Atrium area cannot accommodate this number of people. They can no longer claim to be "freestyle" when reservations are required for many dining and entertainment functions. The service was very slow. This was not due to the staff themselves since they always tried their best to make the customer happy. The problem appeared to be under-staffing. NCL has implemented cutbacks in services as well as increases in fess and charges. They will no longer allow bottled water or soda to be brought onboard and will soon replace the free Uptown Grill with an a la carte fee-based version of Maragritaville. I can no longer recommend NCL. If you do wish to try an NCL cruise, I suggest doing the Gem out of NY rather than the Breakaway.

gpinzone's Tips

Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Try O'Sheenans for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Uptown Grill has great burgers and salads. Make reservations in advance for specialty restaurants. Try the liquor tastings on At Sea Days. There are lunches available in Modernos for free on some at sea days.
Norwegian Gem Norwegian Gem - When traveling between front to rear, always use the starboard side. Blackjack machine in Spinnaker has way better odds than tables in casino. Eggs better in MDR than buffet.
