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.

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.

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.
