Terribly disappointed

Sail Date: May 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Although a new ship, signs of poor cleaning were noticed. THe ship's layout lacked adequate rooms for shows or other activities. Too much space on the ship were dedicated to speciality restaurants. Too much extra charge items on ship, i.e. speciality restaurants, charge to play pool or bowl in miniature lane. Not enough live music and not enough variety in music. Little opportunity to dance. Few dance lessons. No lectures or classes.
For the first time on a cruise we got bored!!!

Pros: New ship

Cons: Activities

Recommends Norwegian Breakaway? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
Ship Quality
Main theater too small. Need more large lounges for other shows as well.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Noticed neglect in little things like tissue in bathroom missing. Dirt on floor of elevator. No serious effort to clean ship constantly that has been the rule on previous vessles. Too bad since the "new" ship will show aging signs soon.
Only had 4 shows that were repeated. Shows were very good but not enough and not enough variety. Show "heat the floor" was very good but used recorded musis most of the time.
