This was my second cruise with NCL. I went in May 2015 also. The embarkation took a very long time. My dad is disabled and had to wait over an hour for a wheelchair. When we finally got on the ship, we had a bite to eat and went to our ... Read more

I cruised last year on the Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda and had a wonderful time. The NYC themed ship has everything that you would need to breakaway and enjoy some good "night out" time. We had such a good time that we ... Read more

We absolutely loved our time on the Breakaway! Embarkation: We are from Syracuse NY - took Yankee Trials from the Albany area directly to the ship. The luggage went on the bus and we next saw it in our cabin. We were directed to ... Read more

1. We are not new to cursing, so we are familiar with cruise enbarkation; the embarkation on the NCL Breakaway was a fiasco. Luckily we booked a semi-suite or (what ever they call it on NCL) this is an up grade. They said we could bring ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we took it last year and had such a great time we had to do it again. There was so much to do both on the ship and land we couldn't fit it all in. It's a beautiful well maintained ship. With great staff and ... Read more

I chose this cruise for several reasons. It was a multigenerational trip which included my 87 year old mom, my brother and my 20 year old daughter. The trip was a Mother's Day gift to my mom. The destination was not important to her as ... Read more

Service was okay, most of the staff was okay. Not a lot of choices for food unless you pay more for specialty dining. Only one pool for 4,000 people to share, 4 hot tubs & was never able to get in. A word of advice, stat out of the ... Read more

As this was my first cruise, as well as the majority of my family, I did a reasonable amount of research on cruise lines in general, not really on a specific ship. Since NYC is fairly close to home, we decided on cruising to Bermuda on the ... Read more

The breakaway is a lovely ship. I was a bit worried because of the may 1st sailing reviews but i think it was because of the weather. I can see where the ship is really not conducive to people being inside . There isn't enough room or ... Read more

Computers were down when we embarked/checked in. So we had to wait over 30 minutes at the desk while the check-in guy just strummed his fingers on a desk. Our cabin steward, LEONARD, on Deck 12 was AWFUL. He was surly, bitter, and ... Read more

Bring earplugs!! The noise factor in the cabins and slamming doors were the worst part. I timed the slamming at once every 4 seconds most evenings and the bed would shake when the door was slammed next door. I cannot understand why ... Read more

Fabulous speciality restaurants, great food. My only complaint was the seats in the theater are TERRIBLE, small, bar across the back of seat. Had to slouch and if the show was an hour you are crippled. The volume could have been toned ... Read more

This was my 6 th cruise on Norwegian. The last one was two years ago. Wow has it changed! The cruise fare is just the starting point. This is a vending machine vessel. You keep having to pay and pay and pay. The atmosphere is not relaxing ... Read more
