We had an excellent experience on the Norwegian Breakaway.  We had previously cruised and enjoyed our experience with Carnival, but this ship had a lot more to offer as far as on-board activities, dining options, etc.  Our cruise director, Julie, was very welcoming and presented a variety of excellent shows/entertainment.  Some of our favorites were Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor, and the Cirque specialty show (which wasn't free, but was worth the extra cost).  

While there were 24-7 delicious (and complimentary) food options, the specialty restaurants were impressive, especially Teppanyaki which we dined at twice it was so good!

We booked excursions for 5 of the 6 stops through Norwegian, and all worked out well logistics-wise and were a ton of fun.  Our favorites included ziplining excursion in Saint Thomas and the seaturtle/shipwreck snorkel & beach excursion in Barbados.

Our only complaints were the location of our room (at the very front of the ship which was very susceptible to waves and ship-related noise) and that some of the prices on-board were a little high (specifically drinks and photographs).

Overall, a great experience and we can't wait for the next Norwegian cruise!
