Review for NCL Breakaway, 4/24 – 5/1, 2016 Sailed on NCL for the fifth time, second on the Breakaway. Although it has many perks due to it's size, it is still the least favorite of the NCL ships I have sailed due to the set-up ... Read more

I chose this cruise based on past experience on Norwegian Breakaway. Arrival was poorly organized. Boarding delayed 1 hour past published start time, and the terminal was so crowded there was no place to sit ... passengers stood shoulder ... Read more

For the Kids: This cruise has a lot to offer children & young teens. I have a 15 year old and she enjoyed the ropes course, water slides, and the Rock of Ages show. She did not go to the teen program at all so I can't comment on ... Read more

We're first time cruisers (probably one and done), and these are my impressions of our time on the Breakaway…. Embarkation - Truly a nightmare. We embarked from NYC, and from the cabbie trying to get to the drop off area through ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise primarily for the ports of call. This cruise ship carried too many people (for its size) and was not very well managed/organized. Reservations were required for every event and sit down dinner. ... Read more

We choose the NCL Breakaway for the itinerary and departure port of New York. Our son has dreamed about visiting the Atlantis waterpark and what better way to experience this than by cruising to the destination. Our time slot for ... Read more

If total chaos at embarkation and waiting endlessly for drinks is your idea of fun, then this is the cruise for you. Embarkation was like Ellis Island circa 1895. Once on board, there was no one to give directions and people were ... Read more

This was the 2nd cruise we had taken on Norwegian. We have cruised 2 other lines. Norwegian falls far below what I expect of a cruise. The bars were grossly understaffed, with a particularly long wait - 15 min or more - at the Topsiders ... Read more

The accomodations were good however there are way too many people on the ship for the better activities that were done in the atrium or other common areas. The regular dining was so so . The staff seems very ... Read more

I am a Norwegian Platinum Cruiser, and up until now I have always enjoyed and recommended cruising with Norwegian. This was my first cruise on their newer, larger class of vessels however, and if this new ship is any sign of NCL's future, ... Read more

As a retired Marine, I have traveled the world, yet this was my first cruise. While retired, I have started writing mystery novels and can happily say I am published. I thought this cruise might give me a plot for my next mystery. Well, it ... Read more

The crew and staff were terrific. Most friendly and helpful of all cruise ships I've traveled. Rooms were spotless and so was the entire ship. Everything was organized and set to perfection. Elevators were labeled for eliminating ... Read more

We recently sailed to Bermuda from NYC on the Norwegian breakaway with our 2 children (1.5 and 4.5 years old) and in-laws. It was the first and last time we will ever sail on a Norwegian cruise. We paid for a mini-suite with balcony and ... Read more

Before I get to the reason for my poor rating, I will say that for the price I thought the value was good. I have read lots of complaints about NCL nickel and diming you that may be justifiable but I took this cruise with only what was ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Norwegian, and it was perfect. Our steward, David, was exceptional and went out of his way for all in his section. The room was always kept up, fully stocked, and clean. We stayed in 10814 mid ship ... Read more

My reason for choosing cruising over other forms of travel is for the personalized service. On many ships you can feel like you are staying in a 5 star hotel for very little money. Whether in an interior or the captains suite- you are made ... Read more
