Norwegian Breakaway is Norwegian Cruise Line line’s homage to New York City. Homeported right in Manhattan, Breakaway accommodates 3,963 guests and sails to the Bahamas, Florida, Bermuda, the Caribbean, and Europe. In addition to the New York-themed decor throughout the ship, passengers will find plenty to remind them of the Big Apple, like three genuine Sabrett’s hot dog carts. The Waterfront, an outdoor space that runs along Deck 8, also provides a great invitation to spend time outside.

Dining

Many of the 27 dining options onboard this Norwegian cruise ship will be familiar to repeat cruisers on the line. The big news for Norwegian Breakaway is Brazilian steakhouse Moderno, The Raw Bar, and Ocean Blue on The Waterfront. Ocean Blue is as good as similar Manhattan-based spots, with impressive cocktails, impeccable service, and carefully prepared dishes.

Entertainment

The ship has lots of nighttime entertainment options — from a Cirque de Soleil dinner theater to a comedy club — but the big news is the production of Broadway’s “Rock of Ages,” an ’80s-themed musical that’s racy by cruising standards, if tame for anyone with cable. The spa has a large thermal suite — with hot tubs, steam rooms, and heated lounge chairs looking out over the water. It also has a Salt Room (the first at sea) in which salinated air aims to soften skin. The gym is attached, and classes include a workout designed by The Rockettes, the ship’s godmothers.

While Norwegian Breakaway's three-story sports complex (complete with a rock climbing wall and basketball court) isn’t new, the nine-hole miniature golf course and massive ropes course are completely redesigned. The Aqua Park now has five slides, including The Free Fall. Kids’ areas include everything from a teen arcade and club to a space for the under 3 age set: the Guppies room; Splash Academy, for 3 to 12-year-olds, is the largest playroom yet for the line.

Staterooms

Norwegian Epic was the first ship to debut the single-occupancy Studio cabin concept for Norwegian Cruise Line, and it remains a genius solution to the age-old problem of single supplements on Breakaway. There is also a variety of balcony, oceanview, and interior rooms, most of which hold 2-4 (and sometimes 5) guests, and offer a variety of configurations to fit every group’s needs. The Haven, a similar but higher-end grouping of suites with shared space and keycard access, is also not new but remains impressive. These suites encircle a private restaurant and a glass-enclosed atrium with play pools and curtained cabanas. Other staterooms worth a second look include spa cabins that have window-view whirlpool tubs tricked out with neon, as well as the right to use the spa facilities during business hours.

Very-Good in general. I did not realized how big this ship is until I was at the breakfast buffet. I would like an smaller ship.

We positively enjoyed this trip. The ship was wonderful, lots of things to do and great staff. All the ports were beautiful. We used SPB tours in every port and had great shore excursions.

Great Baltic Cruise by golf4abe

From the time we boarded the bout until we left the boat we felt we were the number one priority. Everyone of the crew treated us with respect and dignity. They could not do enough for us. Have two more cruises book in 2019 and 2020. The only problem we had was the flight home on British Airways. I will NEVER fly them again. They changed the plane from London to Boston from a 747 to a 777. After waiting in line for one hour and five mins. to check in they told me I couldn't get on the plane. I had to go to get rebooked and had to spend the night in Copenhagen and fly home the next day. British Airways did not notify me or rebook me after I wasted all this time. I booked the flights thru American, it was a American flight number. As a partner airline they shafted me. I had to fly home on Lufthansa via Frankfurt. I still want my miles !!!!!

Norwegian Breakway is poorly managed with hostile guest service managers. A total nightmare trip with this ship.

Enjoyed almost everything. Very large ship but many restaurants and clubs to choose from. SAS flight over was not the best--hot and crowded cabin. Return flight very good.

O'Sheen's Irish bar is the best place to go for an enjoyable sit down breakfast. It is also great for lunch, where you can even be served at the bar!

Deck 16 burgers are great. Deck 16 no wait for breakfast omelets. Large posters on wall are the kiosks and book your activities right away. Bring ear plugs. If you go to Taste for breakfast you get a decent order from a menu breakfast.
