Not for everyone, a bit quirky, exceeded expectations

Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

After reading a number of negative reviews we decided to roll the dice and get a sense of the ship with a weekend cruise to nowhere. A number of the complaints are perfectly valid, some a bit overblown, others somewhat questionable. We had a lot of fun and will likely sail on Breakaway again but this ship isn't for everyone.


Get there early and you'll get on board fairly quickly. We arrived at the port at 11:40 and were onboard by 12:30. Not too shabby.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin BC

Significantly smaller than a similar cabin on NCL's other New York ship, the Gem, by almost 30 square feet. Attractive design, balcony a bit on the small side.
