Review summary

Ok/good but not great - freestyle seems to mean scruffy to Americans. Ship is overcrowded compared to other ships I’ve been on. Nothing is spectacular about Breakaway - most other ships seem to have at least one wow factor. Very focused on upselling. NCL are handling the Coronavirus situation quite well, additional hygiene measures seemed to work well but means extra queuing. NCL seem like 3rd class cruise line in ports, having to tender where others dock and tendering is a shambles - 2hr queues to get off and on!
