Good time, ordinary ship by Cherdix

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

It wasn’t the best cruise we’ve ever been on, but we still enjoyed ourselves. Someone to clean your room, people to cook and clean up after, what’s not to like? We didn’t do any excursions this time. Chose to just go with flow and relax. Having the towels to check out/in right when you get off ship was nice as well as the cool towel to wipe your brow before you got back on ship.

Could get used to it by ekysailor

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

This was a fun cruise. We never got sick or sea sick. The ship entertainment was fabulous. The dining was wonderful. We loved our balcony. We were sorry to miss the private island due to winds. The staff and crew were good.

We enjoyed it but we had problems by Petz

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

It was windy and cold in FL when we left and it continued to follow us to the Bahamas causing us to skip the private island as it was. The crew was good, but we didn't think the restaurant staff or many of the passengers cared too much for the sanitary precautions necessary on a loaded ship, at least until the last couple of days when even the buffet was served to us by staff so the handles of the serving items would not get contaminated. (We believe it was because of the Princess Diamond situation with the coronavirus.) In any case, back in port our breakfast was not served to us. Restaurant meals were not as good, or varied as much as on our previous cruises.The elevators were large, available and intelligent and greatly appreciated.

Great winter excape by bud4dale

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

We sail on Norwegian or Royal Caribbean both have good things to offer but this was our first 10 day cruise and wish it was longer as people were not in a hurry to pack all the events in so quickly and was more relaxed. Going to look for longer trips soon.

Fantastic Western Carribbean cruise by lkuhel

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

Loved this cruise. The ship was clean, entertainment was good. Loved the Jamaican band that played by the pool. Hard to find a couple of lounge chairs if you don’t get out early but we always found if we went on the top deck above the pool we usually found something. Many loungers are under cover in shade which was a drawback. Moderno, Ocean Blue, Cagneys, and Le Bistro were all fantastic.

Good crew, but food, activities and shows poor. by flbigguy2

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

Hadn't been on NCL for a year and they have definitely cut back on food quality. Their larger ship design is far inferior to RCL.

Mostly a good cruise by bhdickson

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

There were lots of good things about the cruise (good ports, great food, excellent entertainment), but some negatives (no bringing beverages of any kind aboard, no chair in our cabin) that will make me think twice about another cruise with NCL.

Last minute booking by cruiseboomer

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

I booked this a week before embarkation because of last minute deal. Okay ship, too large for my taste but I can turn an average trip into a relaxing sea cruise.

We loved the Breakaway. It was the best cruise yet. 11 days in the Haven was wonderful.

NCL not worth the money by BebeBeth

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

I've sailed with about 4 different cruise lines. Norwegian was by far and away, the worst I've ever dealt with. Trying to communicate with them before the cruise was impossible. And the service, quality, food, and excursions were not quite up to par. If I had to do it all over again I'd never choose Norwegian. We've sailed with Regent Seven Sea before, and the parent company for them is also the parent company for Norwegian. But the cruise lines are like night and day. Do yourself a favor and find another cruiseline.

Large stable ship in high winds. The ship reeks of smoke. by JimWeiss

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

My first time on Norwegian Cruise Line. The Breakaway is designed poorly - smoke permeates the common areas even when the ship is in port. I suspect that the crew gets used to it, but the occasional traveler does not - and can not. One and done for me.

Smokers Paradise by willwork4cruz

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

I did have a lot of fun. Great ship for a larger group because there is something for everyone. Although, I like relaxing on a deck with a grill close by and that's not Breakaway. People we getting up at 6:30 am to get a chair because the number of chairs on any deck were limited. If you can put up with cigarette smoke in public areas, enjoy game shows, and like to plan then this ship will be a blast. I had a lot of fun but unless it was a big sale, I would pick a smaller, old school style ship next time.

First time on a Norwegian Cruise by denmb

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

This was fun because we went with a large group; twenty eight people. We had a bad experience with the staff at the Manhattan Dinning room. We were ousted because our men We’re not allowed to wear dressy shorts and shirt. We saw ladies being allowed in wearing hoochie shorts and skirts showing their butt cheeks. When we asked the staff about this , they said that was okay. They said the men could wear pajama bottoms but not long dress shorts. We were treated disrespectfully and we felt that we all dressed better then most. We were ushered and relocated to another dinning area for the rest of the week. Here we were treated much more respectful . The boat was nice but all but four ended up sick after cruising in this ship. It could have been better cleaned prior.

Breakaway 1-4-2020 by roband116

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

A bad day on a cruise is better than a good day at work. With that being said, Breakaway leaves a lot to be desired.

Worst cruise ever by Pardee2007

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

Enjoyed my time with family. The Breakaway leaves a lot to be desired I many areas. Sometimes when we cruise we would like to be pampered just a little, instead we felt as if we were a burden. And that is a terrible feeling. Will never cruise this line again due to just that alone.
