Sailing were my DW and I in our mid 50's, and our 17 yer old nephew. We all felt the ship was too crowded and it felt like you either needed to make a reservation in advance or you risked waiting in line. The ropes course and slides were ... Read more

Overall, the cruise was good. This was our fourth cruise with Norwegian, and 12th cruise overall, the others being on Royal Caribbean(3), Carnival(4), and MSC(1). The ship and overall experience can be good depending on if you know what ... Read more

Ship is too big. Disembarking for Bermuda was awful. Had to wait 45 minutes for a cab to Horsehoe Bay. While I dislike the cheesy shows that I was forced to attend by my party, the Second City Improv and Howling Moon Dueling Pianos were ... Read more

Loved our experience. I booked the cruise last minute as I had to cancel a planned Disney World trip due to a back injury. Had no issues getting dinner times, or show reservations or any issue at all, even last minute! Used the ... Read more

Choose this cruise line because my wife and I were taking two of our grandchildren along (ages 7 and 12) so we wanted a ship which had things for the kids to do and one which departed from a port that we could drive to. The overall cruise ... Read more

Very underwhelmed by the Norwegian Breakaway, very large ship with a lot of amenities squished into small areas such as the pool area for commoners. Norwegian built a huge pool and lounge area for those willing to pay triple the cost of ... Read more

We booked this cruise because we had always wanted to see Bermuda and found a last-minute deal for a cheap interior cabin. The Breakaway is a very large ship and can feel quite crowded when one is endlessly circling the sundeck looking for ... Read more

I wanted to go to Bermuda where hotels are either very pricey or small guesthouses. I liked that the itinerary allowed plenty of time to explore Bermuda and that the ship left from NYC itself, making departure extremely easy via Long ... Read more

Our family of 3 traveled from June 19 to June 26. We live in New York, about 40 minutes from the port. We decided to park the car at the pier, very convenient in my opinion. Embarkation was smooth as well as self disembarkation. ... Read more

NCL is not what it used to be. Cutting too many corners. Charging for entertainment that used to be free. In order to eat at an early to mid evening time, must make a reservation at their regular dining rooms. Staterooms are the ... Read more

I sailed Carnival in 2016 and Norwegian in 2016. Since Norwegian was about 2K more expensive, I was expecting a much better cruise. Unfortunately, I didn't find that to be the case. It wasn't terrible, it was fair but not better. I ... Read more

We just returned from a 7 Day cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway. The ship was beautiful. We reserved a mini suite. It was adequate space for a cruise ship, probably larger than most, but I think it was a little smaller than the Pride of ... Read more
