NOT gluten free, too crowded

Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by Trsvelinmom

  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Family Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window

Felt packed like sardines all the time! Way too crowded for me. Long waits for elevators, no place to sit for buffet meals.

Ship boasts gluten free products and options, but are not fully trained in cross contamination. I have celiac and was sick from day 1, no matter where I are. You can preorder meals in the dining room, but it doesn’t do any

Good when they are not actually gluten free. Nothing in the buffet is gluten free except fresh fruit. Workers do not change gloves consistently, prepare and use ingredients from shared sources and prep areas. 2/3 of workers looked st me crazy when I asked if certain menu items or dishes were gluten free. So very frustrating.

Cabin steward was awful- forgot towels, wouldn’t makeup the room for days on end.

Russian shore excursions were a rip off- felt taken advantage of. Overpriced with guides that took us to toutrist traps. Awful.

Rooms were large and spacious. Outlet picture window was foggy and dirty, but it was better than nothing. Linens were smooth and beds were comfortable.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Rostock (Warnemunde)

Lovely day! Worth the money to spend extra time on the Baltic beaches


Great tour- just wished we had more time to explore

Only didn’t 90 minutes in the Hermitahe and 30 minutes st Spilled Blood our of the 8 hour tour. Spent 2 hours in an awful tourist trap lunch spot that was not mentioned in the description. Ended the day in an overpriced tourist trap shop fir an hour. Clearly guides got kickbacks. Title of the excursion was misleading.

Wonderful combo of touring and time on our own to explore

Super fun experience that gives you a break from bus tours. We had fun playing in the snow, and the husky rides are short but exciting
