We chose this cruise because of the incentives of 3rd and 4th person in same room sail free and this was our first cruise. We loved being pampered the whole week....all you can eat and nearly all the entertainment you can handle. Yes, ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Breakaway. We did the same cruise to Bermuda last year on this ship and enjoyed it very much, so we thought we would try this cruise again. We are a couple in our sixties, who have cruised 14 times ... Read more

We had booked a mini suite with balcony using the casino-at-sea rate and felt we had a great deal with that, but we had an opportunity to bid for an upgrade to various Haven suites. We put in bids in the "low fair" range and ... Read more

This was my first cruise and overall a great time was had by myself and 8 family members. I read from other reviews and completely agree that the embarkation and disembarkation process needs to be handled differently, both took HOURS so be ... Read more

I was on this cruise because it was free and because the ship goes to Bermuda, otherwise I'd never have chosen to be on this ship. Casual does not translate as "slobby" but evidently the people who booked this ship think that ... Read more

My boyfriend and I (33 and 28) were looking for a fun, romantic vacation and since we'd never been on a cruise before we were excited to try something new. This specific cruise came highly recommended from friends and now we know why! ... Read more

I have been on this ship eight times previously and have been very happy. This time was like being on a different ship. The food was tasteless.even the specialty restaurants were not good this time. Portions were noticeably smaller, for ... Read more

Maybe I'm easy to please but I loved everything. The ship, the crew, the food, Malting's sunset cocktails, our fellow cruisers (everyone we met were great people). The three days that Horseshoe Bay (the main reason we went- we're beach ... Read more

I booked this cruise with several friends shortly after returning from an Alaska cruise on the Jewel a year earlier. Most of us upgraded to the Haven and for half of us it was our first Haven experience. It was well worth the additional ... Read more

My wife and I are 70 and this review is from our point of view. If you're younger, you may disagree with me. That's OK. Boarding in New York was long and disorganized. NCL told us to arrive between 10:00 and 10:30 even though they ... Read more

all and all everything was great. They should do more parties like The glow party, the music that night was great...more appealing to people twenties to 60. Our Cabin boy Albert was excellent, cabin was always cleaned. The small ... Read more

My wife and I recently returned from our 6th cruise on the Breakaway. This is our favorite ship. The new menu is much improved. The menu changes regularly and some choices are repeated. Breakfast has several options that everyone loved, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we could leave out of New York and not waste any vacation time. I only had a week vacation and wanted to spend each day relaxing. We had a balcony room, which was wonderful. Never been away in such a ... Read more

4000 people with over 1600 of them being kids - not my type of vacation. Rooms were kept clean - never told we would be charged $13 for a bottle of water that was in the room (thought we had unlimited water?). We were on 8th floor ... Read more

I've been on four NCL cruises. They were on smaller ships. I chose this particular cruise ship because I was excited to try one of their larger ships. However, to my dismay the service and warmth I felt on their large ship was night and ... Read more

We choose this cruise as it sails out of NYC and saves us airfare as we live in NYS. It was fun because we were with family and friends with no time restraints. Food and drink and sun were plentiful. Our only concern was the lack of ... Read more

Highly disappointing. The kids club for ages 10-12 is a bar set off the casino. Yes, a literal bar. During the day, the Bliss Ultra Lounge is converted to a kids club. I use converted in the loosest sense of the word. Fencing is put ... Read more

This was our very first cruise and we could not be any happier. The ship is huge and was filled to capacity but we always got to do what we wanted or found space. I will say the only place we felt crowded was at the Buffet. Hard to get a ... Read more

Food is mediocre, hard to find regular hot breakfast food(pancakes, french toast without raisins) Desserts weren't that great. Food selection was okay. I was annoyed with the constant need to make reservations for shows, lines made ... Read more
