Norwegian Breakaway

7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail date: April 28, 2019

Ship: Norwegian Breakaway

Cabin type: Balcony

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

A great cruise with Norwegian. I was very happy and will cruise with Norwegian again, however not on "Breakaway" due to the design of the awning over the life boats running the entire length of deck 8. This prevents most of the balconies on this boat from looking down at the water.

Fast and efficent, less than 45 minutes from car to ship

Food and Dining

Every meal was perfect, the choices were the hardest part. Evening entertainment in the Manhattan room (Main dining) was a very nice touch to dinner. Drink package was awesome, and the buffet always there, with great food.

Onboard Activities

Casino and evening show in theater were great!

Ship shows were very good, especially the dancers. I did think the magician and comedians did not hold the audience attention well.

Service and Staff

Everyone was very polite, courteous and professional. Very happy with the crew.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was very clean and spotless. This was very evident when in port next to another ship, the Norwegian appeared much cleaner and nicer. My only complaint with layout was there is a covered awning over the lifeboats on deck 8, the total blocks the view of the water from balcony rooms above. For this reason, I will never sail on the Breakaway again, but I will sail with Norwegian as long as this feature is not on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very happy with the size and cleanliness of our cabin. Again very dissapointed with the balcony room looking over the awning.

Ship tip

Verify the view from your balcony room, you may not be able to see the water.

Did the excursion for Secret Unergound River. The best excursion I have ever been on. Don't miss this one, it is fantastic. The staff was awesome, but the underground cavers were spectacular. Again, I highly recomment this excursion!

The only bad point of the trip. A huge crowd that totally grid locked deck 7 and the elevators for a hour. It appeared to be a very unsafe condition.
