NCL Thanksgiving Cruise on Breakaway

Sail Date: November 24, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

Overall cruise was alot of fun. The Breakaway is a large ship and holds 4,000+ passengers. Because this was Thanksgiving, it was at capacity. Service was good, especially if you asked the crew (cabin, bartenders, servers, waiters,) for anything but because there were so many passengers, they could not be proactive with service. If you don't expect proactive service then you wont be dissappointed. Food was very good with alot of choices. Captain and his staff were excellent and gave you a sense of professionalism and security. Cruise Director was hysterical. Best shows were Burn the Floor, Cirque. Comedien would have been funner but families brought little kids so he changed his act to be PG last minute. Rock of Ages singers were not strong vocally and this is not my favorite musical.  Double decker movie screens were awesome. Fireworks were so much fun.

Cabins had lots of storage (Mini Suite Family). Weather was not good but Crew tried thier best to entertain. Lots of extra charges which I did not like. This was an expensive cruise $2000 pp with very little alcohol consumption but we bought pictures, excursion to Atlantis, soda, bingo, spa etc..

Use Cruise excursion since we rented a car and shuttle crashed. Then there was another accident coming back to Port. Almost missed our onboard time. Not alot of time in Florida and because of shuttle crash, lost 2 hours.

Atlantis was fun. Weather was not that good.
