If you don’t expect too much, and find your own groove, you will enjoy your vacation. The true reason for a vacation is to relax so find yourself a nice spot to lie down get a drink and do that just relax. If you were looking for high-quality food and five star service then you need to find a different cruise line. I did think that the cost did not justify the cabin price.
My family and friend enjoyed the cruise.
My kids had a Blast the only thing was the service since we have to pay gratuities in every cruise I understand this gratuities are standard but if the staff not provide a good service and respect that you are a guest then it's not worth it.
Maybe your staff are overworked or not feeling happy with their job.
They should really limit the amount of people on the boat, instead of cramming everyone together. This would allow you to get a drink and the bar, have dinner without wait for an hour and be able to get hot food.
This is the first cruise my family has. Everything runs really smooth. NCL cruise employees provided warm and excellent services.
I was little bit upset when I know I need to leave the boat.
I make another one for sure!
All in all our cruise was awesome. We would definitely do it again. There was definitely some room for improvement but anyone who did not have a good time on this vacation only has themselves to blame. Everyone was great and we met so many amazing people. It was definitely worth the price!
We had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves. The buffet food was just OK. We really enjoyed Noodles and Cagney's. You could use a Mexican restaurant. Melvin was awesome as was Rock of Ages! The comedy improv was just OK. We loved having the last 2 days at sea to just sit back and relax. We loved the freestyle dining and the ultimate beverage package! Over all it was awesome!
We love the bathroom size & bathroom shower so much, excellent fruits quality from breakfast & lunch buffets, but foods quality & taste not good & needs improved also too loud in the area, hand senitary need enforced in Garden buffet.
This was neither my best nor my worst cruise. My favorite cruise was my first one which was on Premiere (?) which is a cruise line that no longer exists. The food was amazing on that cruise and the entertainment was quite diverse. I loved the entertainment and food on Celebrity. I loved the food and swimming pools on Princess. The food and entertainment on Royal Caribbean were good. I liked Norwegian Spirit better than Norwegian Breakaway--the ports were better. I prefer NCL to Carnival. I haven't tried Holland America or river cruises yet.
Third time sailing on Breakaway. Enjoyed first two
Not this one. Two many things wrong and ship needs
Some tender loving care. Found ship to be very dirty. Lots of smokers everywhere.
The ship is big and there are a lot of people but you don't really feel that crowed. At least we did not. The Haven is amazing. If you can book it do it you will not be disappointed. Also when booking the Haven try to get a cabin on deck 16. Our room was right next to the door out to the pool. Walk 20 feet more you are in the lounge. Best deck is 16.
