Review summary

My husband and I had an absolutely fabulous vacation on the Breakaway. We had a forward facing Haven suite that was beautiful. The bathroom was huge and our attendant, Nyoman, kept the rooms spotless. Anoop was the concierge, very personable, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. We especially enjoyed the entertainment; from the Cirque dinner show, to Burn the Floor, Rock of Ages, Fireworks, Angel the guitarist and our favorite, the dueling pianos in Headliners. Brandon, Rhonda, and the other pianist were so much fun. I would recommend this cruise to anyone. If you are bothered by motion sickness, try to get a cabin in the middle of the ship and consider medication. It was quite 'rocky' the first day, and I did have some trouble sleeping the first night but fortunately did not get sick. Another Haven guest told us they requested dramamine which helped. The food and service in O'Sheehans was much improved from the Epic. I do not care for most of the desserts on NCL, which is a good thing, however, the scones and homemade whipped cream served in the afternoon were excellent. The gym was adequate and the ropes course was a fun challenge, note to others-the goal is to do the course without holding on to your harness! I was surprised to find many venues smaller than the Epic and did not realize the Breakaway is smaller. There are quiet, intimate spaces, you just have to look for them...outside on the waterfront, the front of the boat, the library, etc. Loved the Rockette memorabilia, wish I could have made one of the 7am Rockettes 'stretch' class-perhaps offer one or two later in the day.
