This was our second cruise with the Breakaway. The port of NYC is just so convenient for us. The cruise itself was overcrowded. We could not even walk thru the main hall at night. We, luckily, made reservations for most nights before ... Read more

Review Just returned on March 13, from my 3rd cruise on the Breakaway. We had a great time as always. This year we splurged for a Haven Suite and it was well worth it. We were traveling with our 16 month old son and 11 year old daughter ... Read more

I had the pleasure of sailing with my husband on the Norwegian breakaway for the 2cd time. The ship although HUGE was not as crowded as last year. We just got lucky I guess. Where do I start? Elevators crowded first day so expect ... Read more

We booked this cruise mainly for the ship. We had been on several smaller ships (Norwegian Dawn) and wanted to see what the experience would be like on the bigger one. We were not disappointed. Embarkation went very smooth. Being from ... Read more

Today [3/13/2016] we disembarked from a Norwegian cruise. This cruise was a 7-day cruise on the NCL Breakaway out of New York heading for Florida and the Bahamas. Had this been our first cruise we would have accepted what we received ... Read more

Worst cruise ever. We had a cabin with a balcony. Our balcony had an extra chair that was broken, after my husband almost breaking his leg tripping on it a half dozen times, after telling our maid about it for three days and about a ... Read more

We cruise a lot, over25 cruises so far, but our first time on Norwegian. The food left a LOT to be desired, we had the restaurant package with 4 specialty meals. (Note- Norwegian has no "formal" dining room, they have a very ... Read more

THE GOOD: The NCL Breakaway is a beautiful ship both inside and out. I just recently embarked on a 7 day journey to the Bahamas and it was the best vacation ever (March 6th-13th)! This is my second cruise ever and my first? ON THE ... Read more

First, it was probably my fault for not thinking about College Spring Breakers, but our first cruise was such an incredible disappointment, and I'm certainly not saying college students shouldn't have fun, I work at a college, more it's ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise with NCL, my wife really likes the freestyle atmosphere because we have young children (age 7 and 5) and keeping to a strict schedule is tough at that age. We previously cruised on the Jewel, the Sun and the Gem. ... Read more

The Sky is a good short trip for anyone. Our embarkation port was Miami. Embarkation was short and sweet. When we boarded we were able to leave our carry on luggage in a safe place with an attendant while we ate lunch. The food ... Read more

We cruised on the Norwegian Jewel last June and since we were going to be near Miami decided to take a short cruise. After reading more recent reviews of the Sky I was a bit apprehensive but overall we had a wonderful time and were ... Read more

I'm a college professor with a very early spring break, so I like to go on a cruise to get away. In 2015, I went on the Norwegian Epic 7-day cruise and stayed in one of the studios. That was a fantastic experience. The room was wonderful, ... Read more

Day 1.....arrival time was 9:30am so we parked the car a few blocks away and they drove us to the terminal to begin the check in process. They also gave us huge apples upon arrival, I guess that's what you get in the BIG apple.The service ... Read more

I cruised on NCL Breakaway with my 25-year old daughter from 2/28 – 3/6, going to Port Canaveral, Great Stirrup Cay, and Nassau. NCL was running several free promos where you can choose two offers. I chose specialty dining and ... Read more

I have cruised about 15 times and the last few trips have been with NCL and continue to be loyal. We booked this sailing in the middle of a blizzard in 2015 and was a little nervous cruising out of NYC in February but we had amazing ... Read more

First off you should know that I went into this cruise skeptical and a bit scared because I hate large groups. I realized this was a big ship..but a cruise is a cruise! We sailed out of NY which is a bit of a pain, but we were able to ... Read more

This was a cruise booked by my husband as a solution to our holiday dilemmas. I like holidays that centre on a pool, sun and rest, my husband likes to sight-see and pack as much as he can, so this seemed to address both our shopping lists! ... Read more

My 3rd time on the Breakaway and perhaps my best yet because the service was so exemplary. 4 days of cold windy weather with 3 beautiful days in FL & Bahamas - so it definitely was NOT the weather that earned the 5 stars. I was in ... Read more

The Norwegian Breakaway does not have the staff to accommodate so many people. We were offered the FREE drink package which wasn't free after paying taxes and then more taxes on the ship. It would have been a good deal however if they had ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise on the Breakaway, and 3rd on Norwegian. This was the least enjoyable. First off, I understand that booking a cruise in Feb/March out of NY, well, you can't expect the weather to be great, until you get into a ... Read more

My wife and I have been active cruisers for 14 years now. This was our first time on NCL because we received a good deal through one of our local casinos for the cruise. I will honestly say that we couldn’t wait to get off this boat ... Read more
