Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Newbie but saw some things that need some attention.

Let me say i am no pro at the cruise thing, but a chance christmas and birthday gift to go to a place i always wanted to visit and to have my son and mother and father there, Bermuda was awesome.

I understand space and time has alot to do with the design of a ship when being built, but if you had a little more space time wouldn't matter. We stayed 10th floor aft with a balcony. Although the room was nice there just wasn't enough room to sit in the room or get by someone if they were doing something on the bed or at the counter. 3 max on the balcony is pretty tight, especially with 2 chairs on it. I slept on the bed/couch. Hard as a rock but helped my back out.The drawer faces came off by the end of the week and no on could be sitting on it to open the drawers. Finger space was dangerous and even smashed my finger trying to clso them. I would suggest a nylon dtrap sticking out to grab and pull on to open the drawers. and a tad smaller main bed sidways to give a touch more room to get to the balcony. bathroom was spacious but a one at a time one. The things i noticed in the bathroom was the lower lady shaving leg bar probably not going to hold up over time. and the plastic caps to cover screw heads were cracked already by improper installation. Other than those few things it was nice. Our room steward MR.Ron was awesome!

The food was good and not so good. The pizza was terrible and some foods that should have had alot of flavor was bland and vice versa. Sushi was the best thing i had the whole week!

Shows were great!!!! I would have to say ROCK OF AGES was the best one all week but should be rated at least PG13. lol! saw to many parents there with to young of kids.

Entertainment was decent, the most fun was at Headliners Piano bar! One thing i would have like to have seen on this ship was a Classic rock night club! to much island and dance party music for my liking. everywhere you went it was in your face!

The Staff i encountered all week was great, Ron our steward, Philly who was pool side and at headliners, The beautiful Julie cruise director, the bartenders at H2o, the waiter at the boardwalk whiskey bar little guy with a big smile i believe Michala, And Cory who knows her stuff when it comes to art. And the waiters we had at dinner each night were all great although they do not have enough time to interact and get to know there customers and we all agreed even the waiters and servers we don't like the trays of dishes sitting around while at dinner. I challenge NCL to improve on it!

Other than the little things i enjoyed myself got some good deals and won some money.

Bermuda was beautiful and i think i will be going back to see some more of the beautiful Saragossa sea treasure!
