February 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas
We had a great time on the Breakaway, and it was just what to doctor ordered (a break from this miserable winter!) We were concerned about being on such a large ship, but it was a non-issue. Service, food and entertainment were excellent., Ports were okay, certainly not among our favorites, but this was about getting away, not the destinations.
However, and it's a big however, the air pollution from the casino was literally intolerable. My husband has emphysema, and we had to route ourselves to avoid the casino area, and as the area is three decks high, we avoided the areas above and below as much as possible. We were not alone in our complaint regarding this area. We understand that a great deal of the ships revenue is generated in the casino, but it's a sad world that pits profit against health concerns.
