Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
First Time Cruisers
Wow! We had a fabulous time aboard the Norwegian Breakaway. This was our first cruise so did not know what to expect. It certainly lived up to our hopes and dreams.

Thought cabin was nice and roomy (although reading on here it was smaller than other cruise lines). We did have a balcony and did think balcony was small (not cruised before so maybe same on other ships).

Restaurants again found good most of the time. Service seemed to deteriorate by the 6th day. Ate in Cagney's Steak House and thought this was amazing (although had to pay $30 per person extra).

Entertainment was good - although very disappointed with Rock of Ages. Burn the floor was exceptional. Disappointed with the Ice Bar too - and having to pay to go in it. Being a transatlantic cruise and being on the ship 7 days by day 5 was looking forward to getting off - so will try a stopping cruise next time,

Again found service charges confusing and bit expensive $12 per person per day, then extra service charges on every drink. We did find out (when it was too late for us) that we could pay less if we asked!

After reading other reviews on here we are definitely going to try other cruise companies.

Overall for our first (of many) cruises it was good!
