Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Norwegian Breakaway - Okay

My Wife and I decided we needed a getaway after a long summer of family and work so we started looking for a trip we had not done. Bermuda came to mind and leaving from NYC was no problem.

The Breakaway is a BIG ship. As with the Epic, these ships just seem to lose some mystique with their size. The service is just a little off. The cabin was just a little smaller (206 sq ft) and the balcony was tiny. The food was good but not great. I enjoyed Cagney's (at a premium) but the Garden Cafe was disappointing. Manhattans and Taste was better. The entertainment was not as good as on the Epic. The Customer Service was a disaster. Now, the good. Clean. Noise in and around the cabin was fine and we were just off the elevator bank starboard aft. We had somewhere around 3,000 passengers (on a 4100 PAX Ship) and one did not get a sense of it being crowded. The wait staff, cabin steward and bar staff were fantastic. Appointments like Malt-in's and the open bar on the 8th deck were a nice touch. Ease on off and was superb for a large ship. Bermuda was great. I want to go back. The Dockside is the first and a nice way to enter Bermuda. Beaches, golf courses, good gift selections but a bit pricey.

All in all, if you paid what we paid for a Balcony Cabin, then you got a good deal even with the negatives. I just miss the old Norwegian and the charm that brought us back. But, should the opportunity arise again, we will probably sale Norwegian again.
