Breakaway to Bermuda

Sail Date: May 12, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Suite

With this being our 10th cruise and our 40th wedding anniversary we were excited to experience the brand new NCL Breakaway. First the positive: Entertainment was very good, make sure you do the Cirque show, definitely worth it, but don't pay the extra money for "premium seating". The specialty restaurants we tried were all amazing. The ease of getting around the ship was a plus as they had touch screen displays to guide you everywhere. Last night there were fireworks on the top deck! Great way to end the trip. Having cruised on the Epic last year we found ourselves comparing the two and my wife liked the Breakaway a little more I prefered the Epic, especially the stateroom. We had a mini-suite with a balcony, and the balcony is definitely smaller on Breakaway. Only drawback was the Breakaway had no first night specials, like other ships and the price at the spa was way too high.

Make your show reservations on line before you cruise, so you don't have to wait in line, and also do walk-off with your luggage, as we chose not to and regretted this decision.
