My girlfriend and I took this cruise because her cousin got married on the ship. This was my fifth cruise overall and her first. It was my second time on NCL, the first one being NCL Majesty back in 2002. I've also been on Royal ... Read more

We went on the Breakaway with friends for a cruise to the Bahamas. While we have already been to the destinations(which are so so) on previous cruises we decide to go again because we like the Breakaway. We like the freestyle dining in ... Read more

This was a smooth sailing cruise. It's a great ship with wonderful amenities. The shows were top-notch. We saw as many as we could and ate at many of the restaurants. The food had such flavor and free style eating is the way to go. No ... Read more

Well, after deciding to take our first vacation by ourselves (without the kids), my wife and I started looking into either a Cruise, or an All-inclusive resort. We booked pretty last minute, so after finding out we needed to spend nearly ... Read more

This was a girls week away- no hubbies or kids. It was a nice little break. Great weather for a short trip to the Bahamas! Overall, I enjoyed my time on the ship. I had been on her before, so I knew what to expect. My companion is ... Read more

I picked this cruise because it was leaving when I wanted from NYC. I booked at the last minute, the day before. Yes, you can still do that if there are cabins left. I also booked because they were not charging too much extra for a ... Read more

Cruised from 4/10-4/17. Made our selection based upon the "freestyle" option. We probably will not take a traditional cruise again. Loved not being locked in to a dining time or table with people we didn't know. Loved having the ... Read more

This is my very first cruise critic review so please bear with me here! I'm usually not one to write long and extensive reviews about my cruises, but this one was so eventful (and not in a good way) that I felt obligated to share my ... Read more

Hey guys, Just got home from a 7 day Bahama's cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway out of New York and thought I would give a review. We visited Cape Canaveral, Great Stirrup Cay, and Nassau. Boarding in New York took about an hour and a ... Read more

First time on NCL. Have sailed many other lines with my wife (Celebrity, Princess, RCL, Carnival) but this was the first time sailing with the kids (kids 8,10, adults late thirties.) We booked this cruise as it was during our kids ... Read more

We were a party of 11 sailing on the NCL Breakaway in April 2016 (7 adults and 4 kids) travelling from the UK. Our holiday did not start well due to British Airways cancelling our flight from the UK as we arrived at Manchester Airport ... Read more

Norwegian Breakaway was our first cruise and we enjoyed it to maximum. We selected it to celebrate our marriage anniversary and NCL didn't disappointed us. I'll start with pros: 1. Staff is really good. They helped us in making our ... Read more

This cruise was the 53rd for my wife & I and the 9th NCL cruise, over the past 13 years. We stopped using NCL for about 3 years, around 2007, because they were beginning to 'nickel & dime' you for everything, but gave them ... Read more

This was our third cruise- the second on Norwegian and our first on Breakaway from NYC. The ship was at full capacity, but it only felt very crowded a few times throughout the week. With 11 foot waves, the captain decided to skip Great ... Read more

This is a great starter cruise for first-timers, or for anyone wanting a weekend away. Because we were 3 to a room, we decided to get one with a balcony (9266), but there really isn't much to see, so next time, I would opt for window only ... Read more

So I picked this cruise over spring break because we could take our grandchildren without flying. We had cruised several times before on Disney but since kids were older felt this would be a good choice. First off if you really want a ... Read more

Sorry for the long review but I value these and got so much from reading them myself that I had to do a thorough one. This was my second cruise in less than 12 months. I previously cruised on the celebrity summit out of Bayonne and ... Read more

This is my 2nd cruise. My first one was on RC. Cruise reviews are very important to me, and I wanted to be sure to review this cruise for others to see. We chose this one because it was a 2 hour drive to NYC. Parking was easy because ... Read more

This was our first cruise but we traveled with 4 friends all of which have cruised before. All 6 of us are in our 30's. Check in in NY was fine, no major issues, we parked at the port for $40 a night and walked with our luggage to check ... Read more

This was our 16th cruise but first on Norwegian. I was not impressed and wouldn't sail with them again. We found the bar staff to be very rude, our room was never cleaned the first day morning or evening. Found a a dirty stained towel ... Read more
