Ship Facts: Norwegian Breakaway Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Breakaway Deck Plans
Not for us

We love new ships and New York and that provided the motivation for our booking. Turns our those were the two best things about our cruise. Those and the embarkation and disembarkation process.The ship and programs are designed for for the younger cruiser, definitely not for senior citizens. The major show "Rock of Ages" was so loud that we left after 10 minutes, even with ear plugs. The late night second City show was just plain boring when every other audience suggestion included sex acts and boy parts. Everything on the ship was loud. Even when there was a nice singer and combo in the dining room it was so loud you couldn't talk. If you like to relax and/or read in a comfortable and quiet place you will not find it here.

The food in the main dining room was okay. The food in the specialty restaurant we ate in was not. We had to send both our meals back. And then there is the smoke. If you don't smoke this is not the ship for you. The balconies are smoking areas and so it the casino, which is right in the open middle of the ship. You smell the smoke on every open floor as you come and go.

This is our last NCL cruise, and we have been on five. We are not the target audience. We have enjoyed Princess and our next booked cruise is on Celebrity.
