Breakaway--Too Big: Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by hollyheather
Overall Member Rating
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The second hand smoke was a problem for me, when walking anywhere near the gambling, as smoking is allowed in the casino. The beautiful atrium area was always crowded and very noisy due to the very large television screen they utilize to entertain people.
We enjoyed the Rock of Ages show, as well as the dueling pianos, at the Howl at the Moon performances in the Headliners lounge.
This was my second cruise on NCL. The first was in February 2013, where we enjoyed our cruise. It was a different atmosphere than the "party type" cruise on the Breakaway. I think this cruise may be OK for the under 45 year old people, but I sure felt closed in and very disappointed that they didn't provide enough quiet areas inside or outside on the decks. I spoke with many others who felt the same way as I, about the atmosphere on this ship. I heard several people say they would not cruise with NCL again.
I was very disappointed in this cruise and probably will never go on another, due to this experience. Less

The room was quite nice. The balcony was too small for a room that is supposed to accommodate 4 persons. The steward kept the room very clean and he was attentive to us. The bad thing about the balcony, as I mentioned above, is that if anyone is smoking out on their balcony, which happens to be anywhere close to your balcony, you can smell it and ruin your balcony experience.
