Breakaway Review - 2/9-2/16, 2014

Sail Date: February 09, 2014

Our cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway was not as we expected.  There were far too many people onboard in the respect that there didn't seem to be enough "areas" to take care of everyone in a timely fashion.

If you wanted an omelet or eggs prepared in any way, you waited in line for 20-30 minutes.  It seems that there should have been more than 1 chef at each omelet station.

Any show that was worthwhile seeing had a extra cost attached.  (We have been on Princess Cruise Lines where the shows were phenomenal and we never paid to see them.)

The Mixx Bar was a shining jewel.  The personnel that worked this bar made us feel at home and always welcome.  They knew us by name and always greeted us warmly.  Unfortuantely, this bar closed at 10 - 10:30pm and unless you wanted to go where it was very noisy and music was played LOUD, there was really no place else to go that was comfortable.  Perhaps the Mixx Bar could become a piano bar for people who are not into disco.  Music from the 60's and 70's would be a big hit.  People love to sing along with this music.

The first 2 days of the cruise, my husband was ill with diarrhea and could not leave the room.  He is not sure if this were something he had gotten before coming onto the ship or something that he ate.

All in all, we would not sail on the Breakaway again.  It was not a BAD vacation, but it also was not one that will be remembered as a "lets do again".

The best dining we had was in the Japanese restaurant. Excellent food and service. It was well worth the extra money to eat there.

Not enough entertainment for our age group.
