Much Better Than Expected: Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by jfinkmd
Overall Member Rating
Much Better Than Expected
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Traveled with wife and 2 boys, age 10 and 6. There was so much to do that we never needed one of those scarce chairs by the pools.
Highlights from my kids point of view:
1) Ropes course
2) Splash Academy (esp in the evening, we did not mind at all)
3) The food (esp the Garden café, we preferred Taste)
4) Having their own adjoining room
5) The water slides
6) Rock climbing
7) Spiderman and trampoline
8) The Bermuda beaches
9) Shuffle board
10) Room service
12) Splash pool party
13) Giant television in More the Atrium
we did not eat in any specialty restaurants and found the complimentary venues excellent. Never a wait and the service was terrific. No complaints about the buffet and loved the Irish pub (great chicken wings 24/7) as well as the hot dog carts.
My advice for Bermuda. Skip horseshoe bay beach (unless you like crowds) and go 1/2 mile further and hit Warwick Long Bay Beach. No crowds and amazing beach.
Overall, could not have been more pleased with Norwegian. Yes, there are 4000 guests but with some many activities and such a large ship, we almost never felt crowded. Less
