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 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

Not knowing exactly what to expect as a first time cruiser, I nevertheless always expect service with a smile, and that's exactly what I experienced aboard Norwegian Sky. Every Norwegian staff I encountered was cordial and helpful. The ... Read more
