We chose this cruise because it was an easy drive (less than 2 hours) to NYC as well as diverse activities that would meet everyone's needs/desires. The 1.5 hour wait in a long line to board the ship was very much indicative of what the ... Read more

We have been on 14 cruises. We have been on Norwegian, Royal Carribean, Carnival, Disney and Celebrity. We had heard many nice things about the Norwegian Breakaway so we decided to try it. Our party consisted of 8 people aged 23 to 66. ... Read more

We chose the Breakaway after reading about the ship. It was great to be able to drive to the pier, park on the roof and take the elevator directly to the entrance. NCL did a great job of processing us aboard and our rooms were ready for ... Read more

Living in CT, I love sailing out of NYC. Hop on the train to Penn Station, get in a cab and before you know it, I'm at the Pier. Arrived at the pier around 10:30 - just when the last of the cruisers are getting off (tip - go up to the ... Read more

I was very disappointed with the NCL Breakaway cruise out of NY to Bermuda. My wife and I cruised NCL once before on a 3-Night getaway to the Bahamas. Our perception of the cruise was that it was an extended booze cruise. However, we ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was close to home, and I didn't have to fly anywhere. Bermuda is my favorite place in the entire world. If I could live there, I would. This was my first time on the Breakaway, but my 2nd cruise with NCL. I ... Read more

We choose this cruise as it was the only one going out of New York at the beginning of April. It was the biggest cruise ship we had ever been on. We normally go on much smaller ships. I always imagined bigger would be better. I did not ... Read more

We just returned from the Norwegian Breakaway 7 day cruise to Bermuda. This ship is huge and the biggest ship we have been on. I chose this cruise specifically for the ship as my children (ages 12, 15, 18, 19) wanted to go on a cruise ... Read more

First cruise, mixed review. Staying in the Haven was a most amazing experience. The butler was on the spot as was most of the staff. The room was also great. The specialty restaurants were pretty good for the most part, though the ... Read more

I'm platinum level on NCL so I try to do most of my cruising with them. This was another excellent cruise on the NCL Breakaway to Bermuda. Embarkation was a little crazy because the ship was late arriving, so embarkation was delayed until ... Read more
