Disappointing: Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by kkatt1
Overall Member Rating
As for the ship it was rather bland and boring. The food was the same. The pay restaurant Moderno was excellent however, as was the Blues club -we attended it every night and it turned out the be the highlight of our cruise. We More highly recommend the band Slam Allen. The Cirque show was good as well, but Rock of Ages was horrible. We walked out after a tedious hour of amateurish singing and dancing. The pool area was totally inadequate. Set in the middle of the ship adjacent to a stage - speakers blasted either canned rock music or music from a live band. The sound was deafening and a total deterrent to using the pool. The children's pool and the water slide pool across the deck were unusable also as this was the area people landed from the huge water slide above. For a transatlantic cruise the pool was not really missed but it certainly would be on a Caribbean cruise.
Another issue with this ship was a lack of quiet reading areas inside. There were almost no public lounges as pay restaurants had replaced these usual lounge areas. People congregated in the atrium mostly but it was extremely noisy.
As for the cabins, we had both a balcony and an inside cabin and both were excellent. Top marks for good design and ergonomics.
In conclusion I have to say we will not be cruising in this class of NCL ship again. Overall, it did not work for us. Less
Cabin review: bc11134
11134 balcony and 11421 inside were both quiet though 11134 has a corridor door to the studio units right across the hall. Initially the door slammed and was a problem but after it was adjusted I didn't hear a thing.
Over all very disappointing!
NYC to Bermuda 7/30/17
Better than expected
