Too many people
This cruise was the fifth on this itinerary, and the third on the Breakaway. Although the Breakaway is lovely and the designed to hide the fact that there are often over 4,000 passengers, it all comes to naught when tendering everyone to Stirrup Cay, Norwegian's private island. When just about everyone wants to get off at the same time, it lierally takes hours. These mega ships are just too large, and it seems that's all that is being built now. I just learned that my favorite ship, the Gem, is being removed from New York after next year and is being replaced by a ship even larger than the Breakaway. How sad! I guess I just will have to find a new cruise line near by with a smaller ship. (Summit)

On good weather days go to the new Margaritaville area for a quiet, uncrowded buffet breakfast, at no charge.
