We wanted to take our son to see Cuba. It was everything we had hoped and more. I had read all the reviews before we sailed so we had an idea of what to expect. We took one NCL excursion and then took a local carriage ride around the ... Read more

We took the cruise as a relaxing vacation and another way to visit Bermuda. We loved the idea of using the ship as a resort and also spending days at sea. However, it would have been better to have an extra day in Bermuda. We loved ... Read more

ROOM 11772 (BAD GIRLS CLUB) The two ladies in room 11772 (next to our room) for the first 2 nights between 2am-3am would yell at other and swear up a storm with verbal threats to do harm to each other. The first night one girl was upset ... Read more

This was by far one of the best cruises I have taken and I have taken over 100. I could not find one thing to complain about. Getting on and off was a breeze, I would have thought with almost 4000 people this would be nuts...very ... Read more

Family voted for cold and boy they got it! Only 2 days of sunshine with lots of rocking, rolling and raining. Great views, fun excursions, seafood galore and time to relax were on our agenda. Ships decor is more suited to the Caribbean but ... Read more

We did a Bermuda cruise out of Boston on June 9-16. We liked the Friday departure and the price was much better out of Boston. This cruise spent almost 3 days in Bermuda. We arrived in the afternoon on Sunday and stayed through 5:00 PM ... Read more

This cruise choice was purely based on itinerary and price. We have sailed on this line seven times, and have taken 35+ cruises overall. We sailed on the Norwegian Escape prior to this cruise and absolutely loved that ship. My cabin ... Read more

I have been on several cruises on different cruise lines. Norwegian is by far the worst so far. Here is why: 1.) In the first few days frozen deck drinks actually had some booze in them. I'm not a drunkard, but I like to have a ... Read more

This is my second time on the Breakaway. I thought the shows were good but not as good as the last time. The Cirque show was better this time around. The food was very good. Our service in the complimentary restaurants was slow and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ship. We wanted to use the water park and ropes course. We went to all the shows on base. We really enjoyed Scotty the juggler. He went above and beyond to make my son feel special on the cruise. We ... Read more

I love NCL however I prefer the smaller ships with less people and better service. The cabin was very nice and the balcony was extra big which was a bonus. My 16 year old grandson loved all the entertainment and activities for the ... Read more
