Love Norwegian! I have been on two cruises, both with Norwegian and I don't think I will ever try a different one. You can't beat the low prices and the nice staff. Freestyle is also a huge plus. Last year I went on the Norwegian Dawn and it was a completely different feel than the Breakaway. The Breakaway is twice as big and had so much to do on it that I couldn't even get to everything. The rock wall and the ropes course were included in your cruise fee which was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting them to be an additional cost. There was literally something for every age. I don't know if it is the best boat for older people because there's a lot of younger people and kids. And its so big the older cruisers can get tired really quickly. I would recommend the Dawn for older people because it is smaller and more intimate. I loved how the boat had a pool area for just adults and one for just kids!! Will definitely be going on this ship again!
