2 Night Weekend Escape (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 13, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 11643
Traveled As: Couple

Breakaway is a fun ship and I can imagine how great it is in the hot weather when all of the outdoor areas can be used, especially the outdoor restaurants.
That said, the winter cruise gets crowded & a bit hectic but there's lots to do. Catch the sail away party on deck 16 and wear your hats & coats!
If you do the short cruise you MUST book your spa appt super early, get on the boat early & run to deck 15 to book the spa time. The NCL concierge app does not work for spa.
If you book a package that includes room service, book that right away & be sure to get a menu if it's not already in your room. Go to guest services on deck 6 to confirm number for room service.
Have fun!

Cabin / Stateroom

Since it's interior room, often got lost trying to find it. Bring your own decorations for special events, such as Valentine's Day

Ship Tip

It's big, study the map they provide so you can save time & feet getting around on a short cruise!
NCL concierge app was only good to keep track of expenses & already booked apts. App is not good for booking spa appointments or dinner reservations
