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

Returned today from a cruise to the Bahamas. Embarkation was very smooth. First off the ship is beautiful! We had mid ship balcony cabin and it was perfect. We sailed with multi generations and everyone enjoyed themselves. This was my ... 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

Hello All, I've been on 8 cruises before and this was my 9th. I was on the breakaway Dec of 2014 and had a great time. On that cruise I did not experience any of the inconvience as I did on this trip. I got engaged and figured I'd take ... 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

Every complicated to write a complaint with this site and with NCL. I have been ignored when contacting NCL. Called before the trip to get a cabin close to any elevator, but they said this was not possible. This is after my 10th sailing ... Read more

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

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

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
