What a cruise. Ncl dies not care if u are on board or not. They charge almost same as other cruises. There is no service. It's like a crue has a vacation of their own. 1. It's definitely not free style. You still have to reserve dinners. Even in free restaurants. Also, breakaway has only 2 shows which repeat twice. You also have to reserve your shows. 3. They will not honor anything. You will get notices if policies changes and itinerary and stay time changes 2 to 3 weeks before your cruise date. Be careful if you sail this ship. Rooms are super small. So as balconies. Pool area is messy. You may see someone cleaning it once or twice a day. If you still decide to sail it remember: book your dinners way in advance. Book your shows way in advance. Don't take kids. Kids pool open 3 out of 7 days. Other days it's closed and no one knows why. Even the staff. Also, remember: Ncl has tons of extra charges like 20% service charge on board for anything you get. Room service is not free. Anyways. Please sail any other cruise line. Even if you pay a little more for the room, you will have much better experience, much better shows and at the end, it will be cheaper then dirty, messy, Ncl breakaway and it's none caring, nasty, horrible crue. By the way. Food. Eat at home. It's better. No selection. No presentation. Uhhhhh.

Bingo. That's about it. Well you got casino, card games, everything else included passengers participation to make an activity.

Only 2 shows. Burn the floor is fine. The production rock of ages is terrible. Other shows are crue. No free style. You have to book all shows. Wow. No other ships have it.

Children's Programs

Didn't travel with kids. Don't know.

Service and Staff

There is no service or any staff available for service. How can you rate something that is not there.

Ship Quality

OMG. Pool area is messy. Papers or other trash in hallways. Bathrooms are the worse.

Ship Tip

One tip. Pick another cruuseline. Ncl does not care for you. Throughout the entire cruise, you will want to be somewhere else. So as the Ncl crue. They will let you know in many ways that you rather be somewhere else. Don't believe me? Try them. Waist your time and money on this cruise. Good luck.

Get a bus, or water taxi for your destinations. Never book anything on the ship. For this island you don't need it. It's super safe and you can get anywhere by bus or taxi.
