Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Breakaway to Bermuda. Way better than the NCL Jewel

I think I spoiled myself having my first experience being Royal Caribbean. Everything was near perfect. Second cruise was NCL jewel to the Bahamas which absolutely sucked. I figured with a brand new ship, how badly could they screw this one up?

As many others have mentioned, the ship is way too crowded. Very happy we got a balcony room to escape from the wild children running around (and jousting with the shuffleboard equipment). The cigar bar stunk up everything in the surrounding area, even on another deck. Open smoking all over the place including the balconies too.

The Garden Cafe was a major improvement over the Breeze and the pub style restaurant was quite nice as well. I refuse to pay the additional cover charges at almost every other place. Entertainment was decent if you could book a show. Almost everything booked solid very early because the areas are undersized.

Bermuda was beautiful as expected... If it wasn't so expensive, I'd skip the cruise and fly there.

I would consider booking another on this ship only if it was when school was in session and if the price was right. Otherwise, it's back to Royal Caribbean or one of the better cruise lines.
