Norwegian Breakaway

November 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

Freestyle? Not really!

This was my first time on a Norwegian ship, and a first sailing from New York. i expected a lot from the ship since it was so large. However, the cabin was smaller than I have had on other lines, the balcony was tiny, and all the corridors were almost impassable for two people. The food in the buffet was not bad. The idea of freestyle cruising left a lot to be desired. You had to make reservations for almost everything. If you reserved a time for dinner in one of the main dining rooms, you still had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table. i had a reservation for Rock of ages, and when i got there (5 minutes before the show) there were no seats left. what is the purpose of reservations then? They would pack up all the lounge chairs on the deck right after sunset, so there was no place to sit and relax on deck after dark. One night I went to watch a movie in the aft deck, and people wound up sitting on cocktail tables because there were only 20-30 chairs. The crew in general were not as friendly as I am accustomed to at all. They have a beverage package which we took, but you still had to pay 1-2 dollars per drink service charge. One thing I did enjoy was the ropes course. That was a lot of fun. Also, the adults only pool had someone enforcing the no kids rule, which was good. There were several events on the main deck, but there was no room between the pool and the stage. Very poor layout for such a new ship. In all, very disappointing.

Nassau, Bahamas - Be careful, we arrived after dark, and the area near the port seemed seedy and almost dangerous.
