14 Night Southern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 03, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 11880
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Menus in main dining rooms much improved.  Had some truly terrific meals in La Cucina and Cagney's.  Tappanyaki continues to be crowded and of uneven quality , noisy. and felt hustled.  Drink package was great.  The wait staff and bar service folks were marvelous, kind, solicitous, friendly, mostly knowledgeable.  Embarkation and disembarkation were awful, one mistake after another, delayed to the point we feared missing our limo service.  The weather cooperated until the last choppy day at sea.  Our cabin was fine, except my walker wouldn't fit in the door, so I couldn't use it on the ship.  Entertainment was good except for "Rock of Ages" which is unnecessarily crude and vulgar, despite improved staging.

Cabin and balcony comfortable, great location. Entry too narrow. Bathroom was very good.

Ship Tip

Find the burger grille on 16 and order a "child's" burger. The regular size is a two-fister. The waffle-fries scrumptious, if warm.
