Too crowded to really enjoy. by emailgarylee

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our first Norwegian cruise and probably our last based on it. Based on the crowded entertainment venues, condition of the mattress and couch in our state room and the general atmosphere of the cruise itself; we will go back to Holland America and Princess as our favorites.

Caribbean Cruise by t2lager

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This is a very nice & big cruise ship with several things to do, however it did seem to be a little under staffed compared to how many passengers there were. The atrium had a lot of the activities I liked to do but there was not enough room/seating for everyone. Where some of the seats were you could not see the screen due to the overhang of the above floor.

Enjoyable by tcdixson

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Loved all the outside seating on deck 8. There is always something to do, whether it is to your liking or not. We brought games to play, worked well with the outside seating. Lots of places to sit around the Garden Buffet. Try other venues for all meals. Love O'Sheehan's.

1st Time on the Breakaway by LWoodbury

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We really enjoyed our cruise. Our experience with Norwegian and will book again. I am still upset about the towel animals and was disappointed that there were no Christmas decorations the first week of December. The service was good but the service on the smaller ships was great, much more personal and consistent.

Thanksgiving Cruise by fla97

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We thought we would try something different for Thanksgiving, but find going on a cruise at that time does not suit us. We had a great time...but we will stick to spring and summer

Worst Experience ever by sherrimoll

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was by far the worst vacation we have ever taken and we travel 8-10 times per year for leisure. We have never looked forward to going home from vacation before and we could not wait to get off of this ship, it was a terrible experience. We will not be cruising with Norwegian again and we had plans on purchasing cruise next deposits and booking a cruise to Alaska this coming summer which did not happen because we were so disappointed with this experience.

Relaxing Honeymoon Cruise by Cruiser55744116

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We booked a Haven Spa Suite and couldn't be happier with our decision. The customer service was fantastic and being able to skip a lot of the lines to get on and off the ship and book shows and dinner was 100% worth it.

Food in specialty restaurants (Ocean Blue & Cagneys) was wonderful. Cruise overall was good, would ask for more entertainment as far as the shows are concerned. As a avid cruiser I am accustomed to atleast 3-4 shows per cruise. by melodyfitzgeral

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise overall was good, however there was not enough entertainment (shows). Also the wait staff in the Garden Café (buffet) was not very attentive. One suggestion I would have is to have theme nights in the club. The music was geared toward a younger crowd.

Generally great with some exceptions. by pamelabis

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Working with has always been a pleasure. I use them exclusively when booking cruises. Overall, we greatly enjoyed the itinerary of this NCL cruise. Major disappointment in cabin “mini-suite” accommodation, disembarkation process, and inability to reserve space at our favorite specialty restaurant (Cagney’s Steakhouse). Thermal Suite spa package is well worth the $$. Cruise staff was outstanding as typical on NCL. We enjoy gambling (slots), but we were very disappointed in the casino lay-out, lack of clear definition between smoking/non-smoking sections, and rather limited slot machine choices.

NCL and the Breakaway have gone downhill by mja2573

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We never received our onboard credit from cruise only.com. They no longer make towel animals in the rooms. Our room Steward did not make our room every day. And to top it all off there was no main show in the theater

Our trip was fantastic. by andreljohnson

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We cruised with a group of 28 people and together and separately we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and each other. There were great experiences on and off the ship especially in the ocean on the beaches of Tortola and the American Virgin Island.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Very disappointed on the design of the ship. Not enough room in activity areas for the amount of guests.

Don’t bother over crowded by corygc

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We left Miami Nov. 3 on the Breakaway. We booked with NCL after our last cruise out of New Orleans with NCL was one of the best cruises we had ever done. I went with just my wife for our 20th anniversary and my 40th birthday. Getting on went pretty smooth but quickly realized the service on the ship was very poor. My guess is the unlimited bar and prepaid gratuities takes away from the staff’s motivation to care about the cruisers. The entertainment was not good. I might call it decent if they didn’t make it such a pain to get into. They had larger venues they could have done comedy show or the karaoke in but crammed people into small spaces and locked out many. Similar with the events in the atrium or on the pool deck. It is a huge ship but very little room for entertainment. It felt like the ship was just designed to house a large number of people. The specialty dinning rooms were hard to book before the cruise and on the cruise and the staff was rude about it. All the restaurant staff was slow and only the matradee at the hibachi grill stood out as as good and the rest of the restaurant staff could have been brand new for all I know. In summary, I would never pay to go on the Breakaway again. I don’t if know if I’ll cruise again after this and that was my 9th cruise and cruising use to be my favorite type of vacation.

Not family friendly by 7roofs

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We will never cruise with Norwegian again. We cruised as a family with our 20, 16, and 14 year old. Not much for them to do especially with water activities. All of the hot tubs were adult only. Of the 2 pools, 1 was adult only and the other was basically a kiddie pool. We paid for 2 cabins and Norwegian didn’t even make an attempt at locating them near each other. Each was on the extreme opposite ends of the ship and on different floors. So not family friendly. When I kindly mentioned it the didn’t seem to care and then they blamed the travel agent. Our precious cruise which was on Royal Caribbean was exactly the opposite as they were super family friendly and placed our rooms next to each other. Anyhow, if looking for a more family friendly cruise line with kind and accommodating staff, I would look to Royal Caribbean and not Norwegian.
