October 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas
The ship was clean and nice. However, I found it to be too large. It took a bit to navigate. I liked the bar outside on deck 8 and the adults only section aft deck 16. I don't think the ship needs 6 specialty restaurants that charge an additional fee. It seemed these restaurants didn't fill up which would cause a wait in the dining room some nights. The pool area is not very large so there was no BBQ near the pool which I have experienced on many other cruises. However, there were plenty of deck lounge chairs so no fighting over chairs (Yay!). I am not a smoker, but I thought the smoking "box" on deck 15 was ridiculous. Plus it smelled really bad and has no fans to help ventilate the smoke. The food was excellent especially the beef dishes. But no lobster unless you went to a specialty restaurant and paid extra on top of the additional fee to dine there--Lobster in Le Bistro was $19.95 plus another $9.95--so $30 for lobster???? Also felt like the ship nickled and dimed the passengers for everything. Like the games at O'Sheen's Irish Bar--they were expensive to play. O'Sheen's is a nice Irish pub but they don't serve Guinness--WHAT????? The atrium was too loud--I went for a chef demonstration and could not hear the chef. The dining rooms were loud too--Savor, Taste and Manhattan.
The Rock of Ages show was AMAZING! However, the theater seats are incredibly uncomfortable. Please fix the seats.
I would have loved to attend some of the parties on board at night, but they all start at 10:30 p.m. Can't you start them a bit earlier like 9:30 p.m.?
