It was supposed to be a family vacation, but for me it was a nightmare. The entire staff were very rude. When we went to the restaurants, the servers will rush my order. Everything was rush,rush,rush! the room was like being in a closet, the shower was plugged up, there was water everywhere in the bathroom, you can go swimming in there. The pool was so small it's a joke, my sons kiddie pool was bigger. The food was terrible, the same food everywhere, the buffet, the restaurants. Most of the time it tasted re-heated. nasty! So just to say you will eat the same food over and over again the menu never changed, and that goes for all their restaurants. Before disembarkation time, my family and I were getting ready to leave, when all of a suddenly my cabin door open, it was the cleaner. He put a stop on the door keeping the door wide open, while other passenger walked by and looking in while I was putting on my shoes, THANK GOODNESS I was already dressed!! these were his words" you have to get out" can you imagine this, he threw us out of the room! very very rude!!! If you go on this cruise you will never get a smile from any staff, you will not feel welcomed!! and you will pay more then any other cruise line. So beware!! Read Less

Three years ago, while on the Escape, we bought a Cruise Next certificate and we had to use it! After some research we decided on this ship because it was similar to the Escape, which we all loved, but with a different itinerary. My family consists of me, 44, husband, 45, two boys, 12 & 10. My 12 yo is less than a month from turning 13. Our stateroom, 10874 was small, but laid out nice and we never felt too cramped. We all had space to relax. I never had a balcony before and it was wonderful. Most days I woke up before anyone else, so I was able to slip out to the balcony with my book and relax while my family snoozed away. My kids went to Splash Academy every night except one (we thought they’d enjoy the magician/comedian). Even my 12 year old liked going. We would check them in and have a nice dinner and see the show. Since they were “dolphins” they were able to sign themselves out after two hours if they were bored or tired. It worked out great! In Roatan, we booked the Dolphin Encounter through Norwegian. We were taken by van along with 16 others to Anthony’s Key resort. Once there, our group was split in half and we had a 30 encounter with a dolphin and her trainer. Though it was was a wonderful excursion, with great pictures. Harvest Caye was spent on the beach. The pool, while huge was very crowded and I feel like some people had too many and were being obnoxious. My husband and 12 yo did the zip line course and both said it was great. In Costa Maya, we booked Maya Chan on our own. It is a private resort with a max of 80 guests. We had the best day there and would plan other cruses just to go back! We stayed on the boat in Cozumel so the kids could go on the waterslides, but sadly, only one was open. We enjoyed the shows, especially Rock of Ages, which I saw on broadway. It is a but raunchy and several people left with their kids in the middle, despite warnings in many places it was 18+ The food was really good, especially Teppenyaki and the meal during Wine Lovers (another highlight). I got the thermal spa pass and enjoyed spending an hour or so there every day, only the first evening it felt crowded, after that, I was usually in the hot tub all by myself! Overall a great week!

The crew - all of them - were friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The head chef was great; he showed care, consideration and understanding for my vegan companion's dietary needs, and was genuinely interested in our dining experience. He even explained how she could use the signage color coding to determine vegan vs non-vegan food offerings. Speaking of which - the Breakaway has the best dining experience I've had in over 10 years and 15+ cruises. The variety, taste, quality and presentation was fantastic no matter if we ate in the buffet or any of the specialty restaurants. We had a 2-person occupancy balcony room that was more than adequate for our needs. The bed, however, was very firm - fine for me but too hard for my Significant Other. Our cabin steward also made our cruising experience excellent. I cannot say enough about how wonderful her service was. There was plenty of entertainment options on-board the ship, along with activities for adults, young adults and children. [The kids and teens will love deck 16 aft - water slides, obstacle course, I ran into several of the "unseen staff" - the engineers, maintenance personnel, etc. - thanks to my insomnia. They were all professional, friendly and helpful. They even gave me great tips on shore locations, ship events, etc. The art auction staff was very helpful and pleasant. They were incredibly helpful with information on appraisals for my existing art purchases. [My only "complaint" - can you please stop pushing the Peter Max artwork? Please???? ;-)] The ship appeared to be well maintained, clean and organized, with just the right level of lighting throughout. There were plenty of shore excursions and port shopping. [Unfortunately, I cannot comment with any authority on the shore excursions as I didn't take any this trip - I was taking a "complete rest" vacation cruise for a change.] There were a couple minor complaints: 1. This is the first ship I've been on where there were no locker rooms/showers available for users of the gym. I was not the only passenger that commented on the lack of shower facilities at the gym. 2. The H2O adult-only deck needs shade - desperately! This deck area is awash in sun - too much sun. [This was area that other passengers commented upon; makes this deck area undesirable.] 3. Jimmy Buffet's seemed like a neglected afterthought by the ship's designers when they discovered they had unused deck space. The lack of activities or events there was palpable. And, IMHO, a waste of a great name, trademark brand and NCL investment. No Happy Hour. No "Kid's Only" non-alcoholic events (a pity since Buffet's is located adjacent to the kids recreation area). No special events/tastings/demonstrations/celebrations. Why is it this venue even there if NCL isn't going to take advantage of the Jimmy Buffet "island/laid back/soft partying" experience that is the Jimmy Buffet experience? 4. Bring your own coffee/cold drink container: I forgot to bring my cold drink bottle, so I broke down and bought one from the ship's stores. Someone at NCL needs to find new suppliers for this merchandise. I bought one cold drink cup and its lid broke within 3 hours. A second was defective. The third - exchanged the evening before disembarkation - broke its lid right after leaving the port building. I wouldn't comment if I did something stupid like dropping them, because they would be my fault and problem, not NCL's. But, they all broke on their own accord after little or no use. 5. Disembarkation: This seemed to take much longer than the entire check-in and embarkation process. I noticed that disembarkation was often held up by long pauses as certain people passed through NCL security; NCL Security personnel often had to take 1-2 minutes typing something into the computerized profiles of the just-exited passenger before resuming disembarkation. US Border and Customs Enforcement was not the source of any delays. 6. The safety drill prior to launch: Seemed a bit disorganized compared to the other ships I've cruised, including prior NCL cruises. In summary, these "complaints" are minor; no situation or facility is perfect. The overall experience was excellent. Read Less
