My husband and I have been on many cruises together but the Norwegian Breakaway out of New York has been one of the best so far.  Some of our favorite things:


The doors to the balcony "slide" instead of opening out, which allows much more comfort when getting onto the balcony.


The door to the shower is a solid door instead of a curtain, and there is no steam in the bathroom after a long, hot shower.  Very nice!


The Spice H2O area on Deck 16 was our FAVORITE part of the ship.  We spent almost every day there.  Even though there is not an actual pool, the refreshing waterfalls and the sound of the waterfalls was very relaxing . . . and a great place to relax, sunbathe and read in that adult-only spot.


Our favorite restaurant was the Uptown Grill - we had the salad bar almost every single day.  


My husband enjoyed the fitness center every day.  We also liked the way the casino area was very bright and wide open, allowing us to pass through even if we didn't want to stop and gamble.


The restaurants were nice, although way too dark.  It was difficult to read the menus.  For that reason, we preferred O'Sheehan's and the Uptown Grill.  


The ship is very large, clean and bright.  We love the swimming fish on the carpets in the hallways.  The hallways, however, were very narrow.  Because of that, every time someone was coming the other way or someone was doing housekeeping with their cart, passengers had to stop and duck into an entryway to allow the others to pass.


We would definitely go on this cruise again!
