Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Good and bad

Great ship for cruising with kids, the clubs that different age groups can go to are outstanding and we used the first three in the age range and our grandkids could not get enough. The waterpark can come under a bit of pressure at times from the sheer numbers of passengers but there are plenty of quite areas, so much so that you think you are on a different ship. There is a great concept mid ships with a giant screen which can be viewed from two levels, it really works well for films, quizzes and other entertainment. Rather than one main restaurant there are three you can choose from all serving a variety of food which is prepared to a high standard, The speciality restaurants are fine but watch out for those cover charges, bit high in my opinion.

Some of the bar staff suffer from a lack of training but that's not their fault, management need to pull their socks up here.

One of the big failings is the drinks packages and the way they operate. If the staff are confused you can imagine how the poor passengers fared, I heard more rows about what was and what was not covered than anything else, again, it comes down to a lack of staff knowledge, it took one poor soul about twenty minutes to try and explain the deal to me and that included several interruptions from other staff and passengers who were as confused as I was. NCL need to get to grips with this, it could spoil things and give an impression of cheese paring.
