The Breakaway is a beautiful ship and the staff work their tail's off, but there isn't enough staff for the amount of passengers on the ship.  3 hours for dinner on the first night, 2.5 hours to tender to the private island.  There was no organization no one to direct you on the day of disembarkment.  Had an issue with the cruise staff at a BINGO session, he was using very sexual comments when calling numbers.  I now know his sexual preferences and that he loves nutrella spread over his body and licked off.  Very inappropriate in my opinion.  I had to call 3 times to get my safe fixed.  First time cruising with them and the last time.

Better check with NCL if they are going to carry specific sports events.  Leaving out of NY with the Mets in the World Series, and they didn't license the games.  Per the cruise staff, it was too expensive, but when you called NCL to check they said yes.  Be prepared to spend money for your internet connection if you want to see something special.

I have never seen so many people walk out of a show. Make sure you reserve everything on this cruise.

Make sure you are on an excursion, at least you will be in the first couple of tenders. Otherwise plan on waiting around for at least 2 hours to tender. Rent the Cabana for the day!
