Norwegian Breakaway
7 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 10, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 11290
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Length of cruise was perfect. A couple of days to settle in while at sea and a couple of days to wind down at the end of the week. Seas were rough coming back but that's the weathers fault. Room Service was good, housekeeping kept room clean but not as much as Carnival experiences. Very Very smokey and cigarette smell in Atrium on deck 6 (where all the family activities occur) directly below casino floor. Casino is on deck 7 with very heavy smoking smell, (right where we have to exit ship for every port) so this was not good for my granddaughter who has asthma. Whoever designed this like that did not take children and asthmatics into account.

If going to Disney without ship excursion, rent a car!! Cabs are ridiculously pricey. We rented a mini van for $40 instead of paying $500!!! For 10 ppl. Van ride. Thrifty car rental Took Avis shuttle to thrifty
