Norwegian Breakaway/NY to Bermuda

Sail Date: May 10, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

We felt the ship was entirely to large accommodating over 4,000 guest... Personally we prefer a smaller ship, 2,000 passengers or less (The Norwegian Gem is perfect) Our room was not ready when we boarded the ship and when housekeeping did clean up they didn't do a through job:( The theater is to small and no frills/nothing fancy about it at all and it seats 800 people? Again, over 4,000 people were on board? Crowds everywhere, long wait for elevators.  Food in complimentary restaurants was hit or miss as was buffet cuisine ... Overly crowded pool area, with only ONE pool open for all those people??? difficult ordering a beverage and such a hassle having to sign a receipt for each and every drink you order (we had all drink package) Ship was not keep that clean either with lots of slippery areas near the pool area (dangerous as H-ll)         On a good note, The shows were fabulous but we had to make sure we got there early or NO seat! Also, not enough ventilation in the casino area for the unhealthy smoke! Could smell it in the area's near by which was annoying! Again, to many people/crowds around every corner:( I seriously doubt we'll sail on the Breakaway again:( I hope others had a better experience! 

Ship Quality
wasn't the cleanest, wet, slippery area's on top deck near and around the pool!
Food and Dining
Complimentary dinning was hit or miss:(
Service and Staff
Terrible! Room was NOT ready when we boarded ship! Houskeeping I give a ZERO to... The restaurant staff was a little better however...
Children's Programs Does not concern
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Not enough info on ship re: excursions and such...
Cabin / Stateroom
Nothing special for a balcony room! kind of plain/no fills and not kept that clean either... Room was NOT ready when we boarded ship which was really annoying:(
New York, New York
Loved looking at the sites as the ship took off for Bermuda!
Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

O'sheen's Bar actually was one of the best acts aboard the Breakaway (great comfort food) HOWEVER, the night we were there, the wait was obnoxiously LONG!! I'm thinking this was probably because of the dance show that was going on in the atrium across the way.. So, Bad timing on our part but still!!
