7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 13, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 14184
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This is a huge and fabulous ship with tons to do.  The kids were well entertained and mostly stayed out of our way.  The balcony room was totally worth the upgrade.  The food was great, but I'd recommend the buffet over the included sit down restaurants because service was slow and unfriendly.  The extra-fee restaurants were fabulous.  Watch out for the energetic salespeople at the spa!  They'll get every penny you have. 

The ports were lackluster - touristy and uninteresting - but the boat more than made up for it and we were happy to explore and enjoy the activities.

The pool is small - too small for laps - which was disappointing, but the decks are very walkable and there was a ton to do when the weather got iffy. 


I highly recommend this ship!  The staff was incredible.

Fantastic! We had lots of room and everything we could need. Our cabin steward was fantastic.

Ship Tip

The piano singers are a hoot - check out Shakers at night.
