Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Family Birthday Cruise

We sailed on Norwegian Breakaway the week of August 25th. Embarking took about an hour and a half, the lines were long. Once we boarded the ship the first thing I noticed was how immaculately clean it was after having just let off over 4,000 passengers that morning. We were directed to the Garden Cafe for lunch but you can also go to O'Sheehan's and The Uptown Grill. The food at the buffet was always good and there was something for everyone. Our room was ready by three o'clock and accept for one small bag our luggage was in the room. The small bag showed up around 7:00.

We went to see the Cirque Jungle Show the first night. It was excellent, but the food was not very good. You get a small piece of steak and three shrimp. The other shows we saw during the week were Rock of Ages which was good and Howlin At The Moon dueling pianos. I liked them both.

We went to three specialty restaurants: Ocean Blue which was excellent, Cagney's which was really good and La Lucina which was also good but very slow service.

On Friday night they have a fireworks display. The best place to view it if you don't want crowds is right out the door by La Lucina on The Waterfront Deck.

The pool is very crowded and you pretty much can't get a lounge chair unless you go up by 9:30 in the morning. We did not have children with us so we always went to Spice H20 and there were ample seats, a bar and a hot dog cart and two hot tubs.

Yes, the ship is very crowded and at times the elevators are full but you go with the full. Overall I thought for the amount of people on this ship there was something for everyone and the staff went out of their way to be courteous and helpful.
