Cruise 2020 by AndreaNicole08

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

Although our seas were a bit rocky, we still had a very enjoyable experience. Sadly, of my three NCL cruises, this one was our least favorite. The staffing issues and hit or miss food options soured some of our experience.

Another great cruise on the Breakaway by KCMO2017

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

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.

Pineapple by adtifft

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Breakaway

This was my first time on NCL as I’ve only cruised Royal Caribbean and Carnival. I felt that the main dining room food was good as well as Buffett. The speciality restaurants didn’t impress us at all. I thought the food was very bland and honestly not as good as the main dining. The one thing that was a total turn off was the fact they charged for a bottle of water. We had the drink package and with RCL and carnival bottled water was alway free of charge. This was kind of a turnoff to me. I enjoyed it but and certainly had fun but I felt I got a better value on Royal Caribbean. I certainly would sail NCL again but not my first choice. I felt as if there were many more up charges for small stuff that is usually included.

Good time with family, several disappointments by jmann95

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

Please add kids program info to the app. It was great having an app with schedules and reservations etc but it never had ANY kids program info listed. This was a huge disappointment. Service and food quality has certainly declined. Otherwise it was a great trip. Beautiful cabin and balcony, our favorite part of the ship! Didn't like the smoke in the atrium interior of ship, due to the casino. Please make all interiors smoke free. Great job handling special needs, my child has autism but had a great time! Communication was poor however... had a private boat drill but then told we didn't show up when we did. Terrible service at cagney's and said they would make it up to us but never did/no follow through. Frequency of guest services blunders was frustrating and disappointing. Love cruising and love NCL but there was a noticeable decline from previous cruise experiences.

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.

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!

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.
