The Ship - 7 out of 10 The Norwegian dawn (at the time of writing) is a 7 day cruise from Boston to Bermuda. It is an older ship that has been recently renovated. I was not on the ship before the updates were made, but to me the ship ... Read more

This was our second time on the #NorwegianBreakaway from NYC to Bermuda (August 14-21 2016) and, I have to say, it was just as good as the first time. Top 5 reasons why I say it's a great cruise: 1. Freestyle cruising. All day food ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was an easy drive (less than 2 hours) to NYC as well as diverse activities that would meet everyone's needs/desires. The 1.5 hour wait in a long line to board the ship was very much indicative of what the ... Read more

I chose this cruise as Boston is my home port, and is easy to get to.Not to mention Bermuda is one of my favorite places. I took public transportation to the South Station and from there a taxi for $12.00 to the port. I was on board ship ... Read more

The staff was horrible, the food was horrendous and the entertainment was almost non existent. You can no longer bring water or soda on board but you can bring wine probably because they charge a corkage fee. Don't even try to contest the ... Read more

THE BOAT GOOD: The Norwegian Dawn is nicer than I had expected. Tons of restaurants, bars, and activities. The best party by far is the STAFF, relentless in entertainment. Shows! David DaVinci, Elements, Comedy etc. David DaVinci is the ... Read more

We chose the Breakaway after reading about the ship. It was great to be able to drive to the pier, park on the roof and take the elevator directly to the entrance. NCL did a great job of processing us aboard and our rooms were ready for ... Read more

Living in CT, I love sailing out of NYC. Hop on the train to Penn Station, get in a cab and before you know it, I'm at the Pier. Arrived at the pier around 10:30 - just when the last of the cruisers are getting off (tip - go up to the ... Read more

I was very disappointed with the NCL Breakaway cruise out of NY to Bermuda. My wife and I cruised NCL once before on a 3-Night getaway to the Bahamas. Our perception of the cruise was that it was an extended booze cruise. However, we ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was close to home, and I didn't have to fly anywhere. Bermuda is my favorite place in the entire world. If I could live there, I would. This was my first time on the Breakaway, but my 2nd cruise with NCL. I ... Read more

Visiting Bermuda is the highlight of your vacation. While the Norwegian Dawn itself had plenty of activities and entertainment, variety of eating preferences, and friendly staff, it lacked consistency in enforcing rules set by the ship, ... Read more
