  3. Norwegian Breakaway
This review is for a cruise of 4 (my DH, my DS, my DBIL, and myself) with side-by-side midship balcony cabins starboard side on the 13th deck. Both cabins chose the Ultimate Beverage and Dining packages for this trip. We sailed from New Orleans to the western Caribbean stopping at Cozumel, Belize City, Harvest Caye, and Costa Maya. All 4 passengers on this trip have stopped at these ports on numerous prior cruises. We selected to travel this week to avoid a crowded ship. Just a note that it’s much cooler sailing out of NOLA than Miami so bring the appropriate clothing. We took advantage of NCL’s flight incentive program and paid extra to fly into NOLA a day before the cruise. We rented a car and drove over to Biloxi for the night and arrived back to NOLA approximately 10:30 a.m. We rented the car from Budget since we could return the car to the Hilton Hotel which is beside the port terminal. There was an entry into the mall from the car rental office and we enjoyed a little shopping since we had time before embarkation. Once in the mall, we walked towards the food court and took an elevator down to the terminal entrance. The terminal was busy with traffic so being on foot seemed the best option. All cruisers should check the Saint’s football schedule before their trip to avoid traffic issues. Note those with Diamond or Seven Star status with Harrah’s can park free in their garage. The short walk to the terminal is worth the money saved in parking. The cruise terminal is small but we quickly went through security without much of a wait. The area for the Casino at Seas check-in was extremely cramped but we again had little wait. Our party included 2 passengers with Platinum and 2 others with Platinum + status. Note – there is no priority boarding for status members other than Haven passengers so boarding was done per group numbers. We had little wait but were told by another passenger boarding was delayed because of a mechanical issue after we boarded. Cabin – We had the typical midship balcony cabin. We prefer the configuration with the beds closer to the balcony. Our TV didn’t work but by day 2 it was replaced with a new working unit. Our bathroom door was warped and had to be forcefully shut – no big deal. We shared the closet, had our steward remove everything from the minibar/refrigerator, and diligently used the safe. There was a coffee/tea maker with a variety of choices. The stool tucked under the coffee bar provided the best location to blow-dry and style your hair. There is a full length mirror next to the bathroom door for a quick look before you leave the cabin. The shower flooded one evening but our steward had it cleaned and dry by the time we returned to our stateroom. We easily had enough room and storage for 2 people. The cabins on the Escape, Getaway, and Breakaway all appear similar with a difference in color and decoration. Just watch your step when going into the bathroom because it’s a step-up. Our steward was very helpful and friendly. My only complaint is there was no foot bar in the shower. My DS said she had one in the cabin next door – I improvised. Ship – We love the larger NCL ships and find them easy to navigate. They all have a magnificent hanging glass chandelier hanging 3 decks above Headliners and Le Bistro. Sail Away – We left the port after 6:00 p.m. and it was totally dark. The cooler weather prevented us from staying outside on the 8th Waterfront deck for an extended time so we ended up at Savor for dinner. Behind the Scenes – As Platinum guests we always enjoy the Behind the Scenes tour and again we were not disappointed. If you have the opportunity we highly recommend taking advantage of viewing the show dressing rooms, laundry, and galley areas. It makes you appreciate how diligent staff is to please everyone cruising. Casinos at Sea Event – The event was located in the Bliss lounge which was the perfect location. Music, drinks, appetizers were included along with greetings from the hosts. This event was much better than what we encountered on the Getaway. Latitudes Celebration – The Latitudes party was located in the Manhattan Room (main dining room) which was an excellent choice. Drinks were served along with cheese and crackers, officers were introduced, and some danced to the live music. The Cruise Next staff informed us of the many new ships that will be sailing soon. Overall it was a welcoming event. Manhattan Room, Taste, and Savor – Manhattan Room was the main dining room with Taste and Savor as the smaller dining venues – all have the same menu. Taste and Savor were open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on sea days while Manhattan Room was open for dinner only everyday. During port days Taste and Savor were open for breakfast and dinner. We had positive dining experiences with all 3. You may encounter a short wait if you choose to dine at peak times and service seemed slower in the Manhattan Room. Garden Cafe – One either likes the buffet or avoids it. We tried to limit our time at the buffet for a variety of reasons but mainly to not overindulge. It was the same setup as NCL’s larger ships with a variety of food. There was a Kids’ Corner on the back starboard side of the buffet. Staff was helpful, the tables were quickly cleaned, and overall it was a good experience. Both sides were open, albeit alternatively, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We like to sit in the back port side which seemed to have less traffic. If you are sailing in an inside cabin it’s a great place to drink coffee and watch the view. Our stress-free sailing agenda included avoiding the buffet on day 1. Other Dining Experiences – O’Sheehan’s is Open 24 hours. On day 3 we dined at O’Sheehan’s for lunch. At 12 noon we had approximately a 20 minute wait so we made small talk at the bar. Our order included chicken wings, artichoke cheese dip, Coney Island hotdog, the black and blue hamburger, and the ruben. It had been some time since we dined at O’Sheehan’s so the experience was both refreshing and pleasing. They have the best hamburgers on the ship and the other items were all good. We loved this alternative for lunch. Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville in the past has been our go-to in the mornings after walking 2 miles on the track. Unfortunately we can not recommend this location as a great breakfast alternative. Once we stopped walking we ventured in to find the water and ice machine did not work, they only offered orange juice (we drink H2Orange after walking), they did not have delicious premade omelets nor did they offer to cook any, the eggs were runny, and there were no bananas. All of these can be found one deck below at the Garden Cafe but we loved Margaretaville on other ships to avoid that morning craziness. Update – the water and ice machine were fixed and it was a gamble whether they had runny eggs. We still stopped and got coffee and enjoyed the view in the mornings. Le Bistro – This was our 2nd recent cruise to be seated at their outside cafe. It’s actually entertaining to people watch so this was not a problem. Our dinners included the veal and Coq au Vin. Appetizers were French onion soup and seafood medley (which was amazing). The veal was scrumptious and my DBIL tried the chicken dish again. We used to love this dish in the past but found it lacking in flavor of late. Well, it’s delicious again and we highly recommend spending an evening at Le Bistro. Teppanyaki – Our reservations were for 7:30. Apparently all our reservations were moved back 15 minutes from our original request. We arrived at 7:15 and after roughly 5 minutes were seated. The waitress took our drink and food order for the table of 8. When the drinks arrived about 10 minutes later everyone at the table received their drink but myself. When the waitress came around another 10 minutes later to serve the sauces my DH asked her about my drink. She replied the bartender didn’t know how to make a Madras. I requested a glass of wine. At 8:20, an hour after being seated, I got up from the meal and went to the Atrium bar and got myself a glass of wine. The chef who was cooking our food was very entertaining and the food was delicious but I would have to say the service was far below our expectations for specialty dining. La Cucina – We returned to LaCucina because of our positive dinning experience on the Breakaway. With the new dining menu we were not disappointed and dined there 2 nights. Items ordered included calamari, salads, pasta, veal scallopini, and of course the tiramisu. On our 2nd visit we concentrated on pizza and ordered 3 along with more calamari. Warm bread with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette was served and fresh parmesan cheese available. The service was impeccable and food delicious. We will be back on our next cruise in 4 weeks. Cagney’s – The steaks are fantastic and we have never been disappointed with our meals at Cagney’s. For appetizers we ordered the shrimp, tuna, wedge salad, and lobster bisque. Don’t waste your time on the bisque and leave room for your main meal. Three of us ordered steaks and 1 ordered the veal chop. All were excellent. Moderno – On our last sea day we chose to have lunch at Moderno. It was setup with 2 buffets. One had salads and desserts while the 2nd buffet had American style barbecue. We arrived shortly after it opened at noon and found seats. It was easy to get salads and drinks but the barbecue line was long and they kept running out of food so you had to wait until they replenished the dishes. The barbecue chicken, ribs, and sausage were all good so it was worth the wait. There was no ice at the drink station so we ordered our nonalcoholic drinks at the bar. If you can wait until after 12:30 there were no lines. Cozumel – There’s not much to say other than it was cool and it rained all day. On a good note a bad day on a cruise is better than a good day at home. We made the best of it by playing trivia, having a relaxing lunch, reading, napping and taking a short walk around the port terminal. We were able to log in about 4 1/2 miles for the day even with this weather. Our shipped docked about 2 miles down the shore from where we normally dock but with an Effy store nearby so that was bonus. The best way to describe the day is ominous. Belize City – Three of us tendered in, walked around the shops for about an hour, and returned back to the ship for lunch. In the past we went on an amazing excursion to see ruins that we highly recommend. But on this trip, we just relaxed. Harvest Caye – Two of us walked off the ship, walked around the shops and sanctuary, and strolled along the beach before returning to the ship for lunch. Many were enjoying kayaking, paddle boarding, zip lining, relaxing by the pool, and many other activities. All food and drinks are not included with your NCL cruise so bring cash or credit card when you venture around Harvest Caye. Costa Maya – All aboard was at 1:30 p.m. so this was a brief stop. We toured around the shops before returning back to the ship. Per the ship’s announcement they were calling for 17 people before sailing. Just a reminder that if you book your own tours the ship won’t wait for you. Slot Pull – A slot pull was organized through a group on Cruise Critic. NCL had nothing to do with this event. Over 50 people participated and we ended up breaking even. It was a lot of fun and we would participate in another if organized. Burn the Floor – Some may say they have seen this show many times. Even so, we recommend that you see this very high energy show with incredible talent. The songs are the same but with a difference in costumes and stage setup it will seem like a brand new show. Comedy – We made reservations immediately for all the late night comedy shows. When we showed up 1/2 hour before the show standby was being scanned into Headliners. That irked us since normal protocol on other ships allows reservations in first. The warm-up comedian was wonderful but we found the main comedian lacking in entertainment. We went to the 11:00 p.m. show again later in the trip with little variation from the prior show. Queen Flash – This show brought us back to the 1970s with some of Queen’s most popular songs. The show was lacking in energy (who can keep up with Freddie Mercury) and pizazz. Sid Norman’s Pour House – This is located across from La Cucina. We scored great seats for a fantastic rock and roll show. The performers mingled throughout the audience in this very talented and high energy performance. It’s a first come basis for seating so show up early. We highly recommend adding this to your evening cruise calendar. Services – Overall service could have been better. We all noticed that there seemed to be a shortage of bartenders. We want to note the bartenders that were present were very good and did their best to serve us. For example – there was 1 bartender taking care of VIBE and the bar outside of VIBE, on many occasions there was only 1 bartender in the atrium bar, many times there was only 1 bartender at the casino bar, and we could go on. When getting a drink (seltzer with lime) there was always a wait and at times I would just leave and try another bar. Many on the cruise had the same sentiment about the lack of bar service. This was not indicative to our experiences on other NCL cruises. Precautions – From the moment we stepped on the ship we realized there was a diligent campaign for cleanliness. Bathroom doors were propped open, no condiments we on the tables, crew was wiping everything down, our waitress scooped ketchup for us, notices were left in staterooms, all menus were printed on paper, and the captain made numerous announcements for everyone to wash their hands. Actually we found this wonderful because we have experienced the cruise crud previously. The joke on the ship was there was no salt and pepper, it wasn’t a problem with us, but seriously we would forgo seasonings to keep everyone healthy. Many followed this campaign so we found the occasional empty soap dispensers in the restrooms and empty washy washy stations. VIBE Tip – On the larger NCL ships the first 100 people who sign up for VIBE get into this private area on the 17th deck on the front starboard side of the ship. NOLA was cold when we boarded so we opted out of paying extra to join. In the past it usually turned into the same people showing up and one big fun shot o’clock party. We found we didn’t need to join VIBE to have the same experience. As we met people at bars we arranged meeting times and places for meet-ups and found this just as fun as when we joined VIBE. The VIBE experience is fun but if you don’t make the cut (first 100 people) you can make your own fun. NCL app – We downloaded and paid $9.95 per person to use the NCL app. We used it to communicate with each other, see what was happening, check our itinerary, and keep tabs on our account. It worked better than the old application. It was worth the cost. Disembarkation – This was the easiest disembarkation on any cruise thus far. We entered the adjacent shopping mall and had a treat at Cafe Du Monde before our flight back home. Overall we had a good cruise and met many new friends. It’s that time of year for colds and the flu so we appreciate the effort to keep us healthy. I did end up with a cold on day 5 but everyone else stayed healthy. We are looking forward to sailing on NCL Bliss in 4 weeks. Happy cruising to all and stay tuned for another cruise review!
