This was my first time cruising and I enjoyed the all inclusive meals and drinks. The staff was welcoming when we first arrived. On the first day, we did the blue lagoon beach day and found a spot on the snorkel beach which was relaxing ... Read more

Not a bad deal for a spur of the moment decision. Our room ended up in the rear of the ship which was great. The balcony was a bit more private than the ones on the sides of the ship. Although we have done the Bahamas' thing too many ... Read more

This was the fourth cruise we have taken, and would rate this cruise quite low, in comparison. We had cruised on 3000+ passenger ships, previously, but that should not account for the difference in experience! 1) The ship is not well ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise, first on NCL. The Good: Love freestyle dining, that is a huge win. Will totally go on NCL for that alone. This ship was a beauty, my stateroom and balcony was lovely. Outside areas were great, loved the quiet ... Read more

Great promotions run for 3/4 sailing and unlimited beverage package were a great deal. We booked this for a group on 13 people. Food was delish. Many options. Rooms extremely clean. The on and off of the ship was a hassle but, for the ... Read more

We sailed on Feb 12 with our two young boys (age 4 and 2). There were pros and cons about our trip and the cruise in general: 1. Ship: the ship itself is nice and has lots to do (pools, waterslides, hot tubs, trampoline jumper, ropes ... Read more

If you like rush hour traffic and gridlock, you will get a taste of it on the Breakaway. There are many good things about this ship, which I will detail below, but the long lines and waits put a damper on some of the trip. We have always ... Read more

Boarding process at NYC was very smooth and organized; all staffs (security and check-in) were very nice friendly. Lines moved quickly. Food was great in all places; Garden Café on Desk 15 to The Manhattan Room on Deck 8. ... Read more

We chose the Breakaway because it had the right timing for two of our son's friends who were joining us for their first cruise. This was our first cruise on NCL and on such a large ship. We all (6 of us - Us, Parents, and adult son and ... Read more

This was a free cruise awarded to us by a nearby casino. We've done dozens of NCL cruises including the inaugural Breakaway from London to NYC a few years ago. Liked it a lot. This cruise though was too crowded. We couldn't even get ... Read more

We arrived at the pier at Noon and went through customs with passport. Went to see the mini suite and it was that small and since I am handicapped the doorway just barely fit through the door. We went to the desk for some off ship ... Read more

The Breakaway is a big ship. That being said, it was not crowded. Reservations in specialty or other restaurants was not a problem. There were not many children on this cruise so most activities were always available.  I was ... Read more

This is my 6th NCL cruise and 3rd on the Sky. I also have sailed on Holland America and Carnival. So, as you can see I'm "all over the place" when it comes to cruising. I've pretty much settled in on cruising NCL as their ... Read more

Norwegian Sky is a great ship: old & outdated - yes, but having been a Hawaiian ship refurbished and re-assigned to the Caribbean it has a much different character than the newer NCL ships. The staff was friendly, & the food was ... Read more

This was my 3rd cruise but my husband's first time. I read through quite a few reviews before selecting this ship - glad we chose Norwegian Sky! Going for a quick weekend trip I knew not to expect anything glamorous having done a 3-night ... Read more

Wanted to do a quick cruise out of Miami on NCL. The good: Affordable cruise which includes all your food and alcoholic beverages. There is plenty of entertainment on board and the 1st stop which was the private island is great. ... Read more

I would rate this trip between average and very good. We knew the NCL Sky was one of their smaller and older ships with only two stops so we set our expectations at that level. Having said that I was pleasantly surprised. Granted not a ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise, first on NCL (1 on Carnival, 3 on Celebrity). We were expecting this cruise to be comparable to Carnival in the way of a relaxed vibe, fun games, and colorful decor. We took this cruise to get some sun, and away ... Read more

Second time on this ship for only two main reasons. After my first cruise on NCL three years ago, I started collecting ship models, neglecting to obtain one of the Sky. After my voyage to Panama Canal on NCL Pearl last October/November, I ... Read more
