Norwegian Breakaway

February 2016 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

It was OK

The overall cruise was good  but not   outstanding. The   free style dining leaves large groups  either making 5:30 pm or  9pm  reservations to guarantee a table or waiting during busy times to be seated together.   The  main dining room staff is too busy  and the meals take long and the orders/drink orders are not often correct.  Also the food was not always hot.    I feel when you have the same waiter each evening like on other cruise lines they try harder to make your dinner experience a good one.    English was also sometimes a challenge for the wait staff.     In light of this it made us use  and pay extra for the specialty restaurants which were excellent.  

 

The entertainment was very good but not up to par with other lines I have been on.  The seats in the main Breakaway theater are badly padded and you can feel a bar in them. They are very uncomfortable for long shows.  All of them seem to have this problem.   People were testing seats to find a decent one.  

Children are allowed in bars   and lounges  at all times  and at evening   shows ( even the very adult themed  Rock of Ages ) . It made for an uncomfortable atmosphere late night in bars with  tired children in PJs   running around.   

 

Overall I would not cruise with Norwegian again.
