The Breakaway Experience in Bermuda

Sail Date: September 22, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was billed as a cruise in the newest and biggest ship in the Norwegian

line.  And it certainly was big and certainly crowded.  Apparently every square

inch of space has been converted to cabins.  Gone is the imposing theatre of the older Norwgians.  What we have is a large cave with the girders still showing on the low ceilings.  Gone is the social space and cookout area around the pools. Gone is the imposing open elevator in the atrium.  Scaled down is the atrium itself. Gone are the large main dining areas.  Every function is overcrowded: if you want a seat you have to show up an hour early.  Some theatrre areas had virtually no seats at all. Finally, all the art in the cabins and corridors are pictures of dried, brown grass.

Yes, Norwegian has to make a profit, but if you want cruising in the grand old style, avoid the Breakaway.
