Took us a little time to appreciate all there were offered!
Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: October 26, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

We love the bright decor of the Breakaway, bright and fresh in most of the public areas!
The start off was not overly great right at the Manhattan terminal. The public announcement system did not work well to start and actually stopped working just at time of boarding. Terminal staff were not overly friendly and only the odd NCL staff were nice. It must be the enormous crowd and we were after all in the midst of New York!
We found our room is small and the hall way to our stateroom narrow comparing to what we are used. My wife is very unhappy with the limited closet spaces provided in our stateroom. We did however like the bathroom layout!
We had poor experience with guest service staff, most of them but not all seemed stressed and not overly helpful! We complained in writing to management and were responded relatively timely!
There were many options of dining and entertainment and we found them all meet our expectations more or less! Our room steward tried hard to accommodate our requests through our stay! We also had lovely wait staff in all of the restaurants!
We enjoyed the entertainment offered and the performers were fabulous!
They offered many opportunities to enhance our cruise experience in dining and entertainment usually at an added charge.
The biggest hurdle for us on this cruise is to getting used to pre-book or reserve everything ahead of time.
They had a staff performance/presentation at the last day of the cruise in the theater and it was rather well done and we recommend attendance for sure! All in all we enjoyed our time with NCL in NY!

It is difficult to say what tips we could offer since we all have different tastes and preferences! It is an enjoyable cruise!
