  3. Norwegian Breakaway
We took this cruise Aug 2-9th, 2015. There were five of us, myself, my husband, my adult son and his two daughters age 11 and 16. The entertainment was great. We saw Rock of Ages and Burn the Floor. I advise booking these on the Norwegian website as soon as you can as they get filled up very fast. These two shows are free. My 11 year old granddaughter loved Splash Academy. She would have rather stayed in Splash Academy then going into Bermuda. We had two balcony cabins 13738 and 138740 and they were connecting cabins so we could leave the doors between the cabins open or closed at our discretion. The cabins are a little small. I have only ever been on Carnival and it seemed to me that their balcony cabin was larger. That being said, I liked Norwegian better than Carnival. This ship has a rock wall, a rope walk, huge slides, an ice bar, a cigar lounge, multiple shows. We also saw Second City and they were hysterical. The food in the buffet was really good. I am not a foodie and I don't get too caught up in food, but they had a good selection. We also ate in Taste and Savor - two complimentary dining rooms. The food there was very good. There was something to please everyone. For our cruise, we got the liquor package for free and the kids got the soda package. Our steward Ven was a doll and took good care of us. Everyone who worked on the ship was helpful and very polite. We took a 5 hour bus tour in Bermuda. We also went on Hartley's Helmet Diving. If you have a chance to do this, don't pass it up. On the 3rd day in Bermuda we had to be back on the boat at 2:30 so we did not get to go to the beautiful beaches. We chose to go to the man made beach in the dockyard. I believe it was Snorkel Beach. Very, very rocky. If you go here be sure to wear water shoes. I did not and it wasn't pleasant. I had my reservations about Norwegian from all the reviews but I had a wonderful time. I recommend this cruise.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B4 13738&13740
In cabin 13738 we had two single beds and a pull out couch. In cabin 13740 we just used the two single beds. Both rooms were balcony rooms and they were connecting cabins. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The rooms are small and it's best if you put the suitcases under the bed. The bathroom was a good size and very clean.
