7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 14, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Breakaway is not a ship I would recommend based on size and lack of abilities for a large ship. We travel with a group of 14 people of varying ages, the youngest was 6 months and the oldest being 72 years. 1 person has severe allergies and to date NCL has had no problem accommodating her but on this ship it seemed impossible according to a chef who said they couldn't make dairy free sorbet that she wasn't allergic to. Every night there was a problem with the food for her. As I mentioned earlier, we have traveled with NCL since 2006.  12 trips so far but the Breakaway was the first that wasn't able to take care of someone with special needs.

Cabin lighting is a good European design, meaning you use your room card to activate it. The Balcony is extremely small. You can not sit with your legs facing out, only to the side.

Ship Tip

Breakaway stabilizers work well to steady the ship :)
