This is my second time on the Breakaway. I thought the shows were good but not as good as the last time. The Cirque show was better this time around. The food was very good. Our service in the complimentary restaurants was slow and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had not traveled to Bermuda, nor had we sailed on the Breakaway before. NCL offered this cruise with lots of perks and it was perfect for us. We love parking at the Manhattan pier for convenience. As ... Read more

First and last cruise! This ship is so outdated I felt like I was in a really bad 80's wedding the whole week. The entertainment is very painful to watch unless you enjoy 70 songs being sung very badly. The décor is tacky and vases ... Read more
