The ship is super big , it has the biggest casino I have ever seen on a ship. It is very noisy and the elevators are ridiculous. always waiting. I personally thought there was not enough outside space. I don't like the free style ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because it was the only one left for the week we needed to sail that still had mini-suites available. She is new, launched Oct 2015, so there isn't much that can be wrong with her The staff was very ... Read more

I thought this would be a good cruise based on my other NCL cruises. I have also been on the Star and the Pride of America which I felt were much better ships than the Epic. The ship was too big and had too many people. I don't feel the ... Read more

We chose Norwegian because as a Latitudes member, the incentives are tempting. Add in the freebies such as the Unlimited Beverage Package & Specialty Dining Package and you cant compare to the other Cruise Lines. Some GOOD things: ... Read more

Where to even begin.... We had a large group of 16. When booking that many, there are perk and discounts. We were supposed to get money back because everyone initially over-payed. It took months to get the refund from the time they ... Read more

I'll preface this review by saying that I have been on Disney, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, MSC and Carnival cruises before and while they all may have had a few issues they were all great cruises and I was never excited to get off ... Read more

We chose this cruise exclusively for the Epic. First and last time using Port Canaveral. There were long lines for arrival and lots of walking from one end of the building to the other just to manage the number of people. Departure was ... Read more

We went as a family and it was my first time on a cruise. I was beyond impressed across the board with just about everything. I'll start off with the bad - the elevators... they were awful. We had our 6 month old with us and we had to take ... Read more

I did the cruise as a solo. The Solo program with a coordinator and Barteneder in the lounge was excellent. Front row seats for theater events! Group dinners were great. We did change ports, and missed Stirrup caye, We were told it ... Read more

I have been on other cruises but always with family. Now they can't travel as much and neither can my friends so I am choosing to fly solo sometimes to get away as often as I wish. 10th cruise, 3rd on NCL, 1st solo. I liked it a lot. ... Read more

From embarkation to debarkation, our cruise was a mess! We should have gone home after the mess just getting on the ship. It took over an hour just to get dropped off! After getting in a 45-minute line to get through security we had an ... Read more

The cruise was a 2 week getaway from the NYC winter without having to fly. It also had 8 ports 2 of which were new to us. This was our second time on the Breakaway and I was at first hesitant to book again because of the difficulties we ... Read more

Let me start by saying that this cruise deserves 4 stars for dining, entertainment, staff etc. I am giving this cruise 2 stars because we did not make our Harvest Caye stop. We are not the first cruisers in the last three months to have ... Read more

My husband and I were quite happy with our cruise on the Breakaway (2 wk Caribbean). We had only cruised on smaller ships before and the many reviews about how crowded the big ships can be meant we were somewhat apprehensive. There were ... Read more

This was our eighth cruise on Norwegian. We chose this one because it was the right length, time of year, and departure port of New York meaning we would not have to fly somewhere. We opted for the Haven penthouse 12706, forward and ... Read more

We booked this cruise in early January of 2016 and were very excited for our second cruise with Norwegian. We booked an AFT facing room 10916 which we found out later was designated as a handicapped room. We were willing to move if need be ... Read more

Truth in advertising: I went into this cruise with a fairly negative attitude toward NCL based on problems with essentially this same cruise last year. I still have tried to make this as honest a review as possible, not letting my previous ... Read more

My wife and I were on a cruise two years ago to Bermuda on this ship and we had a good time and liked the ship and the crew. We went with the owners of our dance studio who went on there honeymoon with 24 other dancers. The largest dance ... Read more

We chose this cruise for two reasons-- because of getting to spend 5 full days in NYC prior to the cruise, and getting to finally see and experience the Breakaway! This was our 8th cruise, all but one on NCL (various ships). We ... Read more

We had a fantastic time. This cruise visited most of the ports We were looking for. Our cabin was a very nice size (although it was only me and my best friend and it was a family stateroom) we weren't tripping over each other. We had ... Read more

Food, service, people all great! Casino is a bit tight with payouts.... The staff was excellent, toga party a bit different. Wish we were made more aware of all the onboard activities in advance. Had everything book pre-cruise so we missed ... Read more

I rated this in the middle because we had a great time in spite of one of the most poorly managed and poorly designed ship we have cruised. Embarkation was great but disembarkation was a nightmare. They allow you to choose the time ... Read more

I've written a lot below to hopefully help answer some of the questions we had as first-timers. This was our first cruise with Norwegian and we were very impressed with everything about the Getaway which was built in 2014. I rated the ... Read more
