Great ship! by MimosaMatt

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway

This cruise was good, but I will probably avoid this ship in the future. It was not bad by any means, and I had a great time, but something felt "off" with the ship and crew. I can't put my finger on what it was but it was there. Grand Cayman and Cozumel were wonderful ports, but give Jamaica a miss. I had a great time over all and can't wait to sail with NCL again!

Nice trip by rarnoldi

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Very nice ship. Good food. Great wait staff. Clean rooms. Poor pool layout. Would not go back on this ship again because of the pool area. Kids were not any problems. No seating next to the pool. Had to go to the above deck to lay in the sun.

Norwegian Breakaway! by SpeedyDMG

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway

I would definitely use NCL again. There were lots of things to do and see. They took care of us on the sea and land!

Another great NCL cruise! by wildslh

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I have nothing negative to say about the overall cruise experience on NCL. For the past 20 years, we've usually taken an annual cruise on Princess, Carnival, RCCL or NCL. Each one has positive and negatives. We usually travel with mostly adults but have been with children and grandchildren as well. I suggest going off season if possible to avoid up to 50% children on board during summers and holidays. We went once during Thanksgiving break and it seemed the parents let the children run-a-muck. Never again during peak times! Most of our cruises have been in winter and this seems to work well for us.

Not really a review, just my opinions! by jaffa67

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Not a fan of the gi-normous ships, would prefer a medium sized ship. We are old, we don't need a floating amusement park! Would rather have more room on the lido decks and maybe a bigger pool. I think they are stretching themselves too thin; too many bars, too many restaurants, quality is slipping a bit. But if you like that kind of thing, it would be great! Like I said at the beginning, not really a review, more a matter of my opinion. We are keeping an open mind about NCL, going on a smaller ship next year, so we will see how it compares to this one.

First leg of back to back cruises by Killercruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We're cruise junkies, so we're always glad to be on a cruise ship. Just relax and take things as they come. Treat crew as you want to be treated, whether you're on vacation or not

Breakaway Cruise okay, but not what we had hoped for by tweinke

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway

We had a great time on the cruise, but I think next time we will be going back to Carnival! We also are looking at smaller ships as it is just too crowded on these larger ships- hard to get a drink...hard to do anything. The food did not live up to our expectations, So we get more bang for our buck on Carnival we believe. We missed the movies under the stars, the larger pool area, and many other things. The cruise directors also are better on Carnival, I feel. we did not like ours on this cruise. But we didn’t let those things wreck our vacation; we still had a great time and it’s hard to be back in the snow again!

Ok but not great! by ksa110

Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Was an okay cruise, but enjoyed the Sky better!! Pool deck was to small and no lounge chairs in the sun around pool. All on the upper deck.

A bit of a crowded ship that was understaffed by SeeAllTheSights

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The weather wasn't the best, but this isn't the fault of NCL. The ship had a lot of activities, but not enough staff. It seemed we were always waiting, which didn't happen when we were on the Pearl in 2019. There were many rude people, and a few violent fights (thankfully of which we didn't see). I will stick to NCL's smaller ships :)

Fun Cruise by jdpudlo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Our cruise overall was excellent. The service was great for Haven guests; our room was fantastic; the food and drinks were off the charts! The boat was pretty rocky some days, but other than that, I'd do it again!

Bad by AnneandDon

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We had a great time despite the poor customer service & bad food. Unfortunately this left a bad taste for NCL. I don't think we will ever book another NCL cruise. Going bad to Royal Caribbean for sure.

Too Crowded, Many Surprize Upcharges and AdvanceReservations require for most shows by duffell

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Crowds are almost every where. Even specialty restaraunts charges have upcharges on their base fees !! Watch the fine print on what specific liquors are covered in your drink package We missed most shows because we could not get advance tickets which were booked up pre-cruise date. We even went IMEDIATELY upon boarding to get tickets and could not do so ! Had a broken desk chair . Was never fixed or replaced. We finally had it removed on day 2. But never received a replacement. Could NOT use in room refrigerator - both locked and told it was only for mini bar items Be prepared for crowded decks, restaurants and bars Luggage difficult to locate and retrieve. Too many people and narrow isles.

To many people, small venues and reservations required to see shows. Thumbs down on this one. by SitEli

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This ship was so crowded, venues were small so you needed reservations and if you don’t have them good luck seeing a show. If you didn’t need reservations there was no place to sit. The theater in front of the ship was small, very plain looking and was barely used. Food was good and staff was very friendly. No more sailing on this size ship.

Breakaway 10 day, Port Canaveral by jmkm

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway

The first two days we had heavy Seas so they cancelled the NCL private island stop. This was one of the reasons we choose this cruise so we were bummed. One of the shows on the ship the was great was the dualing pianos and the night they had a violinist show up that was from Ireland and she played a couple of songs was was unbelievable. She was so good! All and all we had a great cruise and looking forward to our next one. Good job NCL!

Great cruise with excellent itinerary by Think

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I was looking for a cruise the went to Jamaica, Barrier Reef and 2 ports in Mexico and this was the best option. The ship was good and I've got what I wanted. Everything worked well, I didn't have any problem and enjoyed the ship and onshore.
