Review summary

This was our 2nd cruise on the Breakaway and 3rd NCL cruise. Went with group of 13 and had a great time. My husband and I like NCL’s freestyle dining. On the Breakaway you can do as much as you want or as little as you want. All the staff we came in contact were very friendly. Will definitely be sailing NCL again.

Loved the new show SIX. Saw Burn the Floor last year but enjoyed seeing it again. The Magician and Comedians were good. Went to Howl at the Moon one night, different entertainers from last year. Don’t take your young one after 11 as it got pretty raunchy after that.

Ship is very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was very clean. Didn’t hear any noise from other cabins. Bed and pillows comfortable. Bed by the closet instead of by balcony doors. Nice big aft balcony, just not in cabin much to enjoy it. Good location to the aft elevators.

Ship tip

Book entertainment, excursions and specialty restaurants before you cruise, if not go directly to the kiosks as soon as you board.

Ports of call

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

Our group rented a cabana, had a great time. Food and drinks included with your ship card.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Took the San Juan tour through NCL that includes the Fort and Bacardi. Had never been to San Juan before so enjoyed the stop.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

5 out of 5
Took a van to beach for 3 hours $24 per person round trip. Once on the beach I think it was $5 to rent a lounger, I think wifi was included. Food and drinks available for purchase.

Well organized, in line at 9:00 and by 9:30 we were outside waiting for our NCL shuttle to take us to the airport.
