Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Nice cruise, but there are a number number of problems to be resolved

Traveled with a group of 32, ages 2 to 70's. Activities were numerous, but some were open for such a short period of time, example the climbing wall, was open for 3+ hours and was never staffed by more than 2 or 3 people. There were 8 stations available to climb on and the lines were long, but no more than one station was open at any given time.Had dinner reservations at 5:30, confirmed by the people in Miami for three nights. I made sure to take a copy of the confirmation with me and the people in the Manhattan dining room were totally confused with it. Each night we had the same experience, waits of up to 15 minutes with RESERVATIONS and of course it delayed others who where waiting to dine as no one got in while the dining staff tried to figure out our situation.

Most dining areas were well set up and you could go to most of them with little or no wait. Boarding and departing of the ship were done extremely well. We were off the ship and home in Southeastern Pennsylvania in about three hours.

We made reservations for the shows on the first day that they could be made and it all worked out well. There seemed to be some confusion about where the Burn the Floor show was to be held. On a number of occasions while we were waiting to go into the Manhattan dining room passengers would ask where the show was being held. I was told by the people in Miami the show was in the dining room. but found out the first day that our information was wrong. It was being held in the main theatre. Hopefully problems will be worked out in the future.
