This is my second time on the Norwegian Breakaway. It is so convenient for me as I live in Manhattan and just have to head across town to board. This is a beautiful ship. They assign you a check in time to stagger the crowds checking in. ... Read more

We were very excited for our trip, but unfortunately it was not the trip we hoped for. This was mainly due to the weather, so we had a lot of time on the ship. We were traveling with 2 teenage girls. There are many positives about ... Read more

This was our first cruise. Two adults, two teenagers and two other couples. We had adjoining balcony cabins for us and the kids. Here are our random thoughts about the experience: Embarkation was smooth and easy. Seas were very ... Read more

My first ever cruise and last one ever at least on this company. Very underwhelming experience from food quality to staff friendliness. Lack of attention to detail, overcrowding, and poor to lackluster service depending on where you're at ... Read more

We were very disappointed not to go to great stirrup, we were looking forward to it big time. I'm beginning to think there is something going on with norwegian and skipping gsc, and these "medical" emergencies that make them go ... Read more

This was my first cruise. It was not good. The ship was very crowded and most activities were either cancelled or booked. Many months before the cruise I booked shows only to find out my bookings were changed when I arrived on the ship. ... Read more

The ship is huge and beautiful. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food and drinks were great. There were many amenities but the lines were so long that we didn't even participate in some. There are 2 pools but both were small. One ... Read more

Visiting the Bahamas was a pleasure and I will certainly go again, but there's literally no chance we'll ever cruise with Norwegian again. We didn't pay the inflated Norwegian excursion prices and instead worked directly with locals. ... Read more

My husband, my two kids, and I took this cruise because it was advertised as a family friendly vacation. Much to my dismay, when we arrived at the ship, it was overrun with college students. Apparently, this cruise was advertised to them ... Read more

I was a first-time cruiser, but two others in our party were seasoned. There was a good blend of people on the ship; older, younger, families, couples, etc. We made friends with just about every type of person, and especially with the ... Read more

First of all I want to thank all of the people who post reviews. I think if I hadn't been prepared we would have had a different experience. If you do not pre book excursions, shows, dinners etc. you will probably be out of luck. ... Read more

I usually do not bother to write a review, however this trip deserves one. We chose the norweigian escape because it is the newest and one of the largest cruise ships, and it was going to stop in the Bahamas. I was going to Alantis! Yah! ... Read more
