Norwegian Breakaway

Sail Date: September 27, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 5776
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The boat was nice and clean, the service was hit or miss, but the main drawback was the CROWDING! Over 4,000 people onboard, I found myself fighting for a lounge chair on the deck, unable to get in the pool (more like a large bath), and without a towel most days (somehow they still haven't calculated how many towels are needed bc the towel stand was always out of towels when I would stop by). Angry

If you're going to cruise, spend the extra money and do Disney. Far less crowded, less "nickel-and-dimed" feeling since more things are included (soda, more shows at night, better food w/o upcharge, etc.)

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin was fine, but the bed was awful. The "queen" bed was actually two single beds shoved together (and this is the case for all staterooms), where you could feel the crease in the middle. They also do not use fitted sheets, so if you toss and turn at night, expect to wake up tangled in sheets on a bare mattress.

Ship Tip

On deck 16, the front of the ship is the best quiet spot to lay out. No pool nearby, but it's the only shot at getting a seat and having some peace and quiet to read a book.
