Out of 5 stars I give the Norwegian Breakaway 4.  If they make just a few adjustments , it would be a perfect cruise vacation.

The freestyle dining experience is excellent with several complimentery restaurants and even more specialty restaurants that are more than worth the cover charge.  The variety of bars and lounges and the selections of beer, wine and cocktails make for a great day at sea.

There are many activities going on at all hours of the day to entertain you.  Most of it is good but I did find the Atrium on deck 6 a bad place to have as a central point for the entertainment because there was just too much going on in that area.  You have guest services and the internet cafe and the atrium bar plus there are never enough seats to comfortably watch a show.

I very much enjoyed the pool and water slides on the days we were in warm climates and the day at Great Stirrup cay was the best.

I can only give 2 big disappointments on this ship.  The first is the fitness center.  It was a terrible experience.  It is way too small for a ship that size with the passenger capacity it has.  More and more people are implementing a fitness regimen into their lives and it would do Norwegian some good to improve the fitness center on their ships.  The second disappointment was the seats in the Breakaway Theater.  We saw Rock of Ages and the show is great but it is 2 hours long and the seats are the most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in.

Overall, I would recommend the Norwegian Breakaway to anyone looking for an enjoyable vacation.
