As we'd enjoyed the 2 previous Breakaway inaugural cruises, it seemed only right to sample Escape to see if the Plus added much to the already excellent concept.
Embarkation was very chaotic , badly organised and confusing, with even ...
NCL Escape 3 day from Hamburg to Southampton.
GETTING TO KNOW US
We in our late 60’s and we are active seniors who have done 29 cruises over the last 30 years. This was the end of 15 days in Europe to celebrate our 50th ...
I just arrived from the airport, and sat down to write this review, hoping to be the first.
I'll start by saying that it's hard to write a review based on a 2 nights cruise. There are so many features of the ship we didn't try, and so ...
The food and staff were very good.
No lounges to relax and read a book.
Watched 2 shows and both were very good.
This ship is basically trying to extract money from you by every means possible, eg by charging for some meals which ...
The Crew - met many crew-friends and experienced great dining experience
The food (Breakfast Taste/Savor, Lunch Margaritaville, Snack O'Sheehan's, Dinner The Manhattan) was very good - especially the daily changing specials for ...
I was travelling solo with a group from a German cruise website. This was my first (and likely last) NCL cruise. I decided to go on this cruise to meet some people I am chatting with on the cruise website and to find out if the big 3000+ ...
My husband and myself are seasoned cruisers - having cruised both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, the Mediterranean and Caribbean. We've cruised on some of the most beautiful, largest, newest and much of ...
I took this cruise because it was a new ship , and I wanted to experience this ship. But it was a disappointed. This cruise is just long and narrow. It is very congested, they tried to pack all these restaurant in this ship, but its no ...
NCL,s weekend end cruise's are not at all ran buy the same standards as the week long trips. With that said they cost more money per night with less staff. Don't other booking a Haven suite you'll never see the butler and oh get ready for ...
We had not cruised on Norwegian in about 10 years as we had such a bad experience previously. When this cruise came along, we decided to try NCL again and we are glad we did. Embarkation - we arrived at the port around 1:45pm and was on ...
This would be me and my husband's 8th cruise but first time sailing with Norweigan. I am going to start off by saying, I was not impressed. My husband liked it a little more than I did but not by much.
Embarkation and ...
I have cruised quite often, to the Caribbean many times, to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexican Riviera...on RCI, HAL, Princess, Carnival (once) and Celebrity. I cruised on NCL three times before: Hawaii, Alaska, and Bermuda. Only Bermuda was a ...
Returned from a relaxing weekend on the Norwegian Breakaway cruise to nowhere from New York City. It was a beautiful ship and I enjoyed it very much. Parents took the same trip year ago but myself and sister this was our first time ...
This was my 2nd time on the Norwegian Breakaway. My first cruise was a 7 day cruise.
We decided to take the Cruise to Nowhere, in hopes of a little getaway.
The ship itself is a beautiful ship, and has many perks to it.
However, this ...
Well... I have my verdict. The Breakaway is an amazing ship! I was way more impressed with it than I thought I'd be. There is so much to do on this ship and the décor and themes throughout the ship are beautiful.
I like the ...
After reading a number of negative reviews we decided to roll the dice and get a sense of the ship with a weekend cruise to nowhere. A number of the complaints are perfectly valid, some a bit overblown, others somewhat questionable. We had ...
I'll state up front that this is my first cruise. My wife has cruised a few time before. We went on a 2-night cruise to nowhere out of NYC to celebrate our 40th birthdays.
We arrived to the port in New York City around noon and went ...
We just returned from a 2-night sailing aboard the Breakaway this past weekend. Normally, my family prefers sailings with 7+ nights to really get to know the ship and the staff on board. We loved our first cruise with NCL in 2004, but each ...
I've been thinking about writing this review from the first time I saw the boat. It's so beautiful. Inside and out.
-You actually park on the pier right next to the boat. NOT across the street like I read in some of the reviews. ...
This was my very first cruise. My sister sailed before and surprise me with this trip for my birthday.
Excited! Happy happy birthday to me! The boat was late, really late. We was suppose to leave at 4p.m. We left at 6 or 7:00p.m. The ...
Hi my DH K and I had a great cruise on the Breakaway 11/30.
Some background. K has Parkison and I have had 4 back surgeries in the last 1 1/2 yrs, so walking can be a problem. Yes we stayed in the Haven and it was just what the doctor ...
The 2 night weekend escape aboard the Norwegian Dawn Ship was not a fun sail for neither my sister nor me. Let's begin with the Dawn being set to sail at 4pm and not sailing until seven. When my sister called the reception to ask about ...
I went on this cruise because i am sailing her in December to the eastern caribbean, and i wanted to see what the ship was all about... Really i can't judge the ship too much, because it was only for one night, and a lot of loud roudy ...
My family and I set out on April 4th, 2014 for a one night cruise to nowhere for my grandmothers 85th birthday (300$ per person.) The day started out great after getting the family (11 people) together to celebrate such an occasion. ...
My husband and I just returned from an overnight cruise to nowhere and had a fantastic experience. We're in our early 40's with 2 small children, so this short trip was a perfect pre-Valentine's getaway. Leaving out of NYC was a breeze. We ...
