This was our first ever cruise. We enjoyed the cruise and the ship was beautiful. The staff was amazing and all were very attentive to our every need, however, we were misled a bit on our state room window and what that really was. We ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Escape because our first choice, Royal Caribbean, was canceled. I feel like the escape was greedy in terms of charging for every little thing (including soda and water). All the restaurants served the same thing but ... Read more

Once again NCL did not disappoint. The Boat itself is just big enough and had tons of things to do for everybody. It was well kept and very clean. Our room was made up quickly each day and turned down each night. The washrooms ... Read more

Bring earplugs!! The noise factor in the cabins and slamming doors were the worst part. I timed the slamming at once every 4 seconds most evenings and the bed would shake when the door was slammed next door. I cannot understand why ... Read more

We wanted to travel between the islands without flying so this was the only thing available. The ship itself is lovely. Embarkation and disembarkation went very well. Our issues were more with the staff. Our cabin was adequate but we ... Read more

What we found on this cruise was a very large ship that was well designed. We learned it's really only very large because of the added cabins, not because they added a lot to the ship. Overall, the ship was very nice with a lot of ... Read more

Before you go: Make your dinner and show reservations as early as possible, up to ninety days in advance. We had gotten the “free” specialty restaurant package; when I tried to make dinner reservations for 5:30 there were none ... Read more

Ship is a bit old but it's serviceable. Service staff is very friendly. Food ranges from "Just OK" to "Good", but skip the Sushi restaurant as they are all their own unique "rolls" and not very good. ... Read more

Food and beverage quality not good at all. Many drinks were made from commercial mixers containing high fructose corn syrup, and didn't taste good at all. Some specialty restaurants were good, some were not good at all. The buffet was ... Read more

I have always wanted to sail on the Breakaway since seeing her presented by the cruise consultant while aboard the Pearl. The Pearl has always been my favorite NCL ship, but after a week on the Breakaway, I would say it's a tie. The ... Read more
