We chose this cruise because it was our home port and easy access without flying in the night before. Getting on the ship was not too bad. We were told to arrive between 10-10:30 which we did and waited until 11:30 to board. By 2 our ... Read more

I'm a solo traveler had a great time, we got together every night for dinner and shows And when you travel alone you have to learn to make your own fun and get out of your comfort zone and just let lose. The spa on the ship is ... Read more

This is our 4th NCL cruise, second on the Breakaway to Bermuda. To be honest we were actually looking at a few other cruise lines but between the price and destinations in October we decided to stick with the devil we knew. After reading ... Read more

This was a family cruise consisting of 19 adults and children. I enjoyed the cruise since I have never stayed in 1 island for several days. I especially would like to thank Riassa, our cabin person, she was invisible most of the time ... Read more

I really like the Norwegian Breakaway ship. It is new, strong and safe. Me and my wife 3rd time have cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway. Service is good, but food quality and variety is going down cruise by cruise. In the Main ... Read more

Embarkation was extremely slow compared to 24 other cruises we have been on .Ocean view cabin was very nice, more room than expected. Restaurant service was very slow. Le Bistro French Restaurant is still our favorite although the ... Read more

So I'll start by saying this was a great cruise ! I've cruised with NCL, HAL, RCI, MSC and Princess before so I'll compare to those. We were extremely lucky with the weather to avoid Hurricane Mathew and Nicole. The breakaway sailing ... Read more

It was an interesting story. In general we prefer carnival for the Grand appearance of the ships from the atriums, theaters, pools decks and the overall "fun ships" We ended up getting the last room on the Breakaway the night ... Read more

The cruise came as part of a package so we had no choice of the ship we sailed on. We have sailed 5 times before on Princess , Royal Carribean, Carnival and Thomson. The ship was overrun with children even though it was term time. You ... Read more

This was the first time I sailed on NCL. The food, the staff and service was very good. It was a large ship but the pool was smaller than the in ground in my son's yard. There was no comedy shows at night actually except for 2 shows that ... Read more

The Breakaway is a big, beautiful ship, sparkling clean.To start with the cons, embarkation was a nightmare. This was my 16th cruise and I have never had an embarkation take so long.This was Norwegian's first 4,000 passenger ship and I ... Read more

This is was our 5th cruise, but first one with ncl- our other cruises were with rccl and Disney. The embarkation was not a smooth process- minimal staff and numerous IT issues meant large lines to get your room keys. Disembarkation was ... Read more

We choose this cruise partly because we wanted to spend a few days exploring NYC before heading to Bermuda, and had a lovely time in both cities. It was great to be able to explore a port for 3 full days and have such a full schedule of ... Read more

Took the 9/25 New York to Bermuda on the Breakaway. We were on the Getaway from Miami to the Caribbeans last year so we are familiar with the Breakaway ship facilities. PROS of the ship: 1)I like this new big ship. Spice H2O is a ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an easy port of departure to visit Bermuda. The international crew is friendly. While the ship is well laid out, they have made it a "smoker friendly" environment with indoor smoking in the casino and ... Read more

This was our second cruise from NYC on the Breakaway to Bermuda - the first being in 2013. We found the ship's appearance and maintenance to be as we remembered which speaks highly of the crew who work behind the scenes. The Manhattan ... Read more

Although my wife and I did our best to have a good time, I would not recommend non-smokers or anyone with children cruise on the Breakaway (and likely the Getaway since they are sister ships). For reference, we just cruised to Bermuda at ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Breakaway. We enjoyed our cruise and so did the kids. The food is good but I will be honest not amazing, I think it goes by quantity not quality. We ate at some of the specialty restaurants and the meals ... Read more

I read several reviews prior to booking my cruise on NCL Breakaway. Needless to say, I had a great time. We experienced a minor issue like the TV in the room not working, but one phone call to guest services resolved that issue. For the ... Read more

Went with just wife and I for our 35 year anniversary. Tons of fun in the casino, cigar bar, restaurants and Bermuda. Embarkation went smoothly, although we waited from 10:30 a to 11:30a to get onto the ship. Went directly to room to put ... Read more

We sail on NCL routinely and always enjoy the nuances of each of their ships. The Breakaway is a very large ship and I enjoy this class of ships as they are usually newer and "feel clean and shiny " . They also have a multitude ... Read more
