OK but the Ship had to Cancel Some Port Stops
Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review to Europe - Northern Europe

Review summaryWindy sea conditions eliminated three scheduled port stops - bummer! Also, because of the cool weather, the pools on the top deck were hardly used. This resulted in the majority of the passengers forced on to the remaining venues and crowded conditions everywhere.
Food and Dining
Moderno on the Waterfront
This location provided about the only nice quiet place I could find to read, early in the morning. It has nice, well lit tables and usually I could get the staff to shut off the overhead music so I could concentrate.
For a ship this size, this location is a joke. It has poor seating and is way too noisy. The big screen is good but again, the location is just WAY too crowded. Trivia games should have been held in another location.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Sailing the Baltic this time of year apparently comes with some risk. Because of a storm front passing, we remained an extra night at Copenhagen. This resulted in us having to drop the Warnemunde port call. Rough seas caused the ship to remain an extra day at Tallinn so that pushed back the St Petersburg visit by a day. We remained at St Petersburg for 2 days but the delays resulted in the dropping the visits to Helsinki and Stockholm.
Ports of call
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany Did not visit port
Helsinki, Finland Did not visit port
Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden Did not visit port
