Norwein Breakaway - NYC Roundtrip to the Bahamas

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Getting on the ship was a breeze - They had everything pretty well set up to permit an easy and relatively smooth boarding - We boarded at about 12:00 noon and were able to eat at the buffet right away - Our cabin was fine - It was listed as a mini-suite with a bathtub and balcony, which it was - The cabin was small, but we did not mind that as we were not in the cabin all that much - The balcony was a little cramped, but then again we were not out on it much or for very long periods of time - Our cabin steward was great - Very friendly and attentive to everything - He was especially good at making animals out of the towels - Food at the buffet was just OK - The main dining room (Manhattan Room) and the smaller dining rooms (Taste & Savor) were fine - Not awesome, but fine - We ate Cagney's Steakhouse (up charge of $30.00/pp) - It was very good - Also ate at Teppanyaki (Japanese - up charge of $25.00/pp) - It was OK (food fine), but our cook was not real good with the tricks - More Bars were nice - Alcohol drinks were reasonable ($5 - $10 each) - Soft drinks $2.00 each - Ice tea and water free - Ate dinner at Savor, Taste and Manhattan Room - Better than eating at the buffet - Table service provided - Got off ship at the island - Had BBQ on the island then back on the ship - Got off ship at Nassau - Went to Atlantis - Nice - Gambled at the Casino at Atlantis - Drinks free while you are gambling (not on ship, just at Atlantic Casino) - Walked around Nassau - Ate lunch there - Had a couple of drinks at Skeeters (local bar) - Back on ship - Did gamble at the Casino on the ship - Broke about even - Seems like slots loose first few nights - Last night not as loose - Blackjack OK, but the have a constant shuffling of the cards (machine) after each hand - Rock of Ages show is NOT for anyone under 16 - It is a very sex explicit show - Music good, but most of the time you thought you might have mistakenly walked into a Strip Club - Burn the Floor, was good - Like Dancing with the Stars - Comedy Club (Second City) was poor, as was the Dueling Pianos - Have been to Dueling Pianos in Orlando - No comparison - Orland was top shelf - Not so much on the ship - Gave numerous songs, but they seemed to ay only what they wanted to play- YES, I did send $$$ with the requested songs and the songs were songs that we had seen requested at other Dueling Piano shows - Did not use the pools/hot tubs much - Only a day or 2 of warm weather - Hot tubs were NOT hot - Just luke warm - The band IMPACT was absolutely GREAT! They could play anything and good too - Deal or No Deal and Not So Newly Wed Games were GREAT! Circus show was OK - Had to buy dinner with that show - BINGO was also GREAT! Internet service poor - Customer Service was very good - Photographers were good - Did not have any young ones with us, so can't comment on those activities, although the kids did seem to be having a lot of fun - Getting off the ship was very good - Everything seemed to go real smooth - All in all, it was a fine cruise - We have come to like the "All Inclusive" resorts, but we might cruise again in the future Less
