Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by PATMILLER

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise because my friends got a special deal with their travel agent. We have been on many cruises with Norwegian and Carnival. This is Norwegians "bad" experience for us. This ship was extremely overcrowded. There was no way to get near the pool or hot tubs. People crowded the pool and the edges of the pool so it was impossible to get near it. There wasn't an "adults Only" pool, We didn't get to see any of the free shows because they had to be booked in advance of the cruise. All entertainment areas were packed at all times and it was very, very difficult to get a seat anywhere. The cabin attendants must have been overworked because one night our cabin wasn't straightened nor clean towels provided. We had specialty dining as part of our package but we didn't know you had to make reservations to dine there before you ever got on the ship. The excursions were great but that was away from the ship. I do not ever want to book on this ship again.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB 10236

Enjoyed the cabin. Especially enjoyed having a coffee maker. The bathroom was the best thing on this ship. It had a great shower and double sinks. I guess that's why it was call a "mini suite".

Harvest Caye

Loved this place. The beaches were great. The pools were fabulous. Lots of chairs for everyone. People were very nice and friendly. The wildlife and butterfly exhibit were beautiful! The entire island was beautiful! Even had a zip line. I didn't try it but it looked fun!

Costa Maya

Been to Costa Maya numerous times. It's a great shopping area and place to have a tropical drink and enjoy the sights


Snorkeled at Chakkanab. Water was a little choppy but it's a nice snorkel
