Review Summary

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.

Ship Quality

Things are clean enough, but the pool is WAY too small for a ship this size.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The extra space in a minisuite seems all to be in the bathroom. The shower was outstanding! On the downside, whoever designed the position of the closet and storage shelves must have travelled without any luggage, because you hade to sqeeze past the bed to get to it.

Ship Tip

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

Either get off the ship very early, or wait until noon or you will be waiting in the theater forever.
