Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Inside Stateroom

NCL Breakaway is a wonderful ship with a captain who is way to eager to close off access to outer decks. He closed the lower deck often with sunny skies and 15 mph wind. Our transatlantic cruise consisted of 8 sea days and only 2 days warranted closed decks. This may have been due to reduced staff who could not manage the chairs and cleaning duties.

The food was very good and our wait staff was superb.

The embarkation was not good. We were made to walk in the rain to terminal 2 which was 100 yards away from main terminal.
