I have been on the Breakaway from NY on 2 other occasions, in the past the staff was friendly and the food offerings had better varieties and better quality. This time around the overall experience was not good at all. The staff were not really friendly at all, most the employees came across angry. They allowed smoking in the casinos and the ventilation was horrible. The general dining restaurants were at best OK and the wait service at Teppenaki was not good at all, but the cook was very good. On the nights at the Garden Cafe that was specialty nights, it turned out to be just plain buffet food, not special at all. We had a spa balcony cabin with unlimited access to the spa, that was not a change from our prior trips, clean, private spa with limited access, so it provided some haven for time to relax. Casino was terrible, the comps are horrible, so don't plan to get a lot of comps if you are playing at the casino, they are extremely cheap. We did not travel with our kids this time, but it seemed like there was a mild amount of kids on board and seemed well behaved. We we did a shore excursion and it went well. The main reason why I gave this a poor rating is due to 4 main issues 1- Food quality overall was less than good 2- Employees just did not seem to care and were not friendly 3- Disembarkation was extremely slow, even though we had priority disembarkation spent extra money for nothing 4- All inclusive with airfare but no opportunity to upgrade Read Less

My wife and l tried to take in everything you had to offer: Comedy shows: Excellent!!! Dueling piano bar: Excellent!!! They did a fabulous job taking requests and miraculously pulled off 80% of them JP’s Magic show: Excellent!!! Sid Norman’s Pour House band: Excellent voices, dancing and chemistry amongst the band!!! Pool party (not my scene, but it looked just like the movies with a lot of smiles, laughs and drinks... oh, and a bouncing beachball) Since the crowded pool was not my scene l was glad that we signed up for the thermal spa package. Not crowded, plenty of lounge chairs and air conditioned (plenty of heat in the jacuzzi and sauna but the AC is really nice when you need it). And also saw Velvet (a great acrobatic show set to music featuring some very talented artists/ acrobats). And everything was spotlessly clean I expected the excursions to be my favorite parts, and even though I had a lot of fun with them, my best memories were on the boat (and that doesn’t even take into account our honeymoon-related activities, which also took place on the boat). Seems most people ate at the Garden Cafe buffet. I wonder if they realize that Moderno, Savor, Taste, O’Sheahan’s don’t charge extra for bfast, lunch or dinner. The food was great!!! Read Less

Embarkation was simple and easy. Went right into ship. However, very little direction given once you were on the ship. Room - Room was nice 9244. I suggest that room if you can get it as it has an oversize balcony. Service in the room is far below what we have experienced on Royal Caribbean and/or Carnival. Simply, he made our bed and changed towels. Nothing more. The issue in the room was he charged us on the first day for a bottle of whisky and a red bull. However, we had never even opened the refrigerator. We finally (on the last day) got the charges off. The service wasn't bad it was just nothing like other cruise lines. Food - Simply put the idea of free style dinning is a farce. They tell you that you can choose from many different restaurants every night that are complimentary. However, they all serve the same menu. The food was usually luke warm at best as it is made in a central kitchen and then delivered around the ship. The food was simply mediocre. I have had better food at a Dennys. The first night we ate at O'Sheens (not sure how to spell it) it was without a doubt the worst service and worst meal we have ever had on a cruise ship. We were provided three waters and then our "waiter" took our order. Then we never saw from him again for over an hour. When they did finally deliver our prime ribs, they were disgusting. WAY over cooked and not even warm. The waiter set them down and walked away without speaking. It was so bad we simply left and went to the buffet. The buffet on the 15th floor is pretty good actually. Well staffed and well stocked. The service and attendants were awesome and friendly. Food was what you expected it to be.. Shows - Burning the Floor was one of the best I have seen on a ship, Broadway worthy. However, many shows cost extra money and you had to rush on the ship to make reservations. This is no an all inclusive ship. You have to pay for many many many things. They are constantly hounding you to attend an way over priced art action that is the same art you find on almost every ship and cruise line. Comedy shows were a bit raunchy for what was supposedly a PG13 show. Casino - STINKS, smells like an ashtray. The MALE dealers were almost all rude and unfriendly. The claimed to have $10 black jack tables but then rarely opened them up. The casino is in the central walk was so you are forced to walk through it. Then they are rude to children who stop and look at the lights. The casino was a serious letdown because of the attitude of the dealers. Numerous other players complained about the contrast between the male and female dealers. COMMUNICATIONS APP - DONT BUY IT. IT doesn't work. We spent $30 for all three of us to use it. The phone portion of the app never worked,...... NOT ONCE. We couldnt even call the front desk. The text messaging simply did not work. You would send the messages and the other person would never receive them. When you are using this to communicate with children this is a problem. I went to the desk to ask for a refund and was told they would not do it as it is all done electronically. Trivia games - These games were often and fun. Allowed for lots of people to play and participate. However, it is located next to and beneath an open air bar and many times you could not hear the game or movie that was playing. The staff who manages and run these fun games was outstanding. Children's games. They had many games around the ship and a full game room. However, $160 to play a video game is unbelievable. These are games that are .25 cents. The game rooms were mostly empty the entire cruise. The rock climbing wall only had one person running it with a line 50 people deep. He was eastern European with a serious rude attitude. The head three ropes and courses but only one attendant. The wait time exceeded two hours. Even after numerous people complained there was no change during the entire cruise. Putt Putt golf course did not have enough putters or balls. The game room had many games but not one had all the pieces. This room was a total wast. Both the game room and the library were full of kids screaming and yelling. There were no cruise staff there to maintain it in any way. Internet - When it worked it was "ok" at best. However, the round every minute so if you use it for 1 minute and 3 seconds they deduct 2 minutes. Since it takes a full minute to get connected, you are charged usually 3 -5 minutes to connect. If it is NOT free, dont pay for it. \ Excursions - we did the beach and snorkeling in Honduras. Enjoyed it. However, we basically paid $300 to ride a bus to a beach, borrow a make, snorkel and fins. The lunch that was served was terrible and not very good. This was our 18th cruise and first on Norwegian. We will most likely never cruise with them again. The free style dinning is not very good and the food is mediocre to below average. I would not cruise this cruise line again unless it was an unbelievable deal. Read Less
