Breakaway is a very nice ship. It has verynice appointments. However, the main lobby areas tend to get very crowed and noisy at times. The casino is poorly laid out, because if your on the 7th floor you mustwalkthrough it. Also the pool and deck areas are ridiculously small considering the ship has over 4,000 passengers. Finding lounge chairs anywhere is an almost impossible challenge.
Splash zone for toddlers is very good yet it does tend to get crowded. Tip -surface in slash zone is slippery-pack water shoes for toddlers.
Staff was very accommodating and friendly.
Shows were great. Both the production shows as well as the dualing pianos. Been on a dozen cruises, probably the best entertainment on any of them.
Food was just ok.. but staff in the dining venues was very accommodating to children.
There are no quiet bars or lounges anywhere on the ship.However the 8th floor outdoor "boardwalk" is great "since it has some nice restaurants and bars. Great for just walking about and getting away from noises and crowds.
Plenty to do for kids of all ages,however if you are traveling without kids this is May not be the ship for you.
ONE LASTTHOUGHT NCL is setting itself up for a major law suit because the Safety Drillis a complete JOKE.
