Chose due to itinerary and length of trip. Ship is pretty outdated and has lots of creaks and banging noises when moving. Bed was hard as a rock, lumpy and tilted toward the head, pillows are no better. Bathroom was TINY. Shower about ... Read more

Embarkation was quick. We arrived at the port a little after noon, and were on the ship before 12:30. We immediately went to Crossings Main Dining Room and had a great first meal. Our room was ready right on time, and was clean and ... Read more

My husband and I traveled with our seventeen year old daughter for spring break and very much enjoyed the excellent restaurants and service. Our beautifully appointed and very clean accommodation was in The Haven (AFT) and a wonderful ... Read more

This was our very first cruise and we could not be any happier. The ship is huge and was filled to capacity but we always got to do what we wanted or found space. I will say the only place we felt crowded was at the Buffet. Hard to get a ... Read more

Food is mediocre, hard to find regular hot breakfast food(pancakes, french toast without raisins) Desserts weren't that great. Food selection was okay. I was annoyed with the constant need to make reservations for shows, lines made ... Read more

Pros: the food as good, at all locations. We went to the buffet a lot because there are so many options for the kids, and all the food we tried tasted good and the variety was great. No wow factor, but food was abundant. The specialty ... Read more

I was off for a week for Spring Break and wanted to get away. As a teacher I also wanted to avoid kids as much as possible. Surprisingly, I was able to accomplish this easily onboard the Breakaway. There are plenty of adult only areas ... Read more

We just returned from a Spring Break Cruise on the Breakaway with our three kids (ages 9, 15, and 17). This was our first cruise on NCL and first out of NYC: - Embarkation was mediocre. Positives: The Pier is easily accessible from ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it leaves out of New York, I live near Philadelphia. This ship has all the amenities that other cruises have, but I really liked the Freestyle aspect of dining. My teens did not take advantage of the teen ... Read more

I have to say i was very impressed with NCL's Breakaway. I've read a lot of negative reviews but my family and I (husband, 2 boys; ages 9 and 11, my husband's aunt and uncle) had a great time on this cruise. I'm comparing this to the ... Read more

This cruise was a last-minute decision for a quick Spring Break getaway. A friend took care of the details for me and my daughter so I didn't really pay attention to what I was getting into. We joked about the open bar being included and I ... Read more

Choosing a cruise is difficult. Everyone has different wants and needs. Food, entertainment, ports, service, it goes on forever. The "open bar" was the main reason we choose the Sky. We were pleasantly surprised with the Sky ... Read more

We selected this NCL cruise because we wanted to take our family on a fun spring trip and we had a great NCL cruise experience on the NCL Dawn a couple of years ago. We booked a suite on this cruise because we had a great suite experience ... Read more

My parents retired last year and took my wife, son and I on this cruise. Took a flight to JFK where Norwegian doesn't have any transport too... which is a shame but took the longest private van to the docks ever. Almost missed the ship ... Read more

This is the second time I have been on this ship and my 25th cruise. I have cruised Holland, Norwegian, Disney, Celebrity, Princess and Royal. The last time we sailed Breakaway we did the Bermuda itinerary which I prefer for this ship. The ... Read more

I will try to make this as informative and beneficial to all who decide to read. First it was my wife and I and it was our first time away from the kids (22, 20, 18 & 16) since having them. We were definitely ready for this! We live ... Read more

We were looking forward to this cruise for months as we had heard very positive things about it. We'd done Carnival before and loved it. Unfortunately, our experience was anything but positive. While boarding we received warnings from ... Read more

As 1st time cruisers, we weren't sure what to expect. We had heard both good and bad things, and the internet is full of both positive and negative reviews. I'm so glad we went on this cruise! We had an excellent time! From the moment ... Read more

We usually take vacation later in the year, but decided to try one during warmer months. Embarkation and disembarkation were fairly smooth as we required wheelchair assistance. Cruise terminal in NYC seems small because of the sheer ... Read more

It was a last minute vacation plan. We weren't really sure if we wanted to do a cruise so to satisfy our curiosity we went ahead and planned a quick weekend one to "test the waters", so to speak. We sure are thrilled we did. ... Read more

I had heard horror stories about cruises- everyone's old, there's nothing to do.. so my partner and I decided to try a short one to get our feet wet. We chose a three night cruise from Miami to the Bahamas. We came in a day early to enjoy ... Read more

This cruise was the perfect amount of time--four nights--and what made it really special was that we bought the Specialty Dining package for three nights. That meant we ate in the Palace Main Dining Room only one night which I must admit ... Read more
