  3. Norwegian Breakaway
We chose this cruise because some friends had been on a Norwegian cruise in 2018, and they had great things to say about it. We decided to take this cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary (September), we travelled with another couple also celebrating their 20th anniversary (June). We had an absolutely amazing time! There wasn't a moment we weren't on the go and loving everything we did. We were on the ship for seven days and there is still so much we didn't do. The staff was great, always ready and willing to help with a smile. There is always someone to help you find something awesome to do while on board or even at shore. They will even help find other guests that are looking for similar things to do and introduce you. Our cabin was spacious and comfy, our steward kept it tidy and perfect. The food was amazing, everywhere we went. There was never a time that we had the same thing at the same place. The ship is massive and provided so many things from entertainment to relaxation. We spent a day in Miami before embarking, mostly shopping. We arrived early to board the ship, we did have a little time to wait before getting on. Once we were on we started exploring immediately. Enjoyed a few drinks while we waited to set sail, there was entertainment on the pool deck. Any time we left the ship it was a bit busy but the staff entertained while we waited in lines for our shore excursions. We travelled to Roatan, Belize, Costa Maya and Cozumel. There was shopping at each port right off the boat, I preferred Cozumel, but each port had it's cultural souvenirs that are worth checking out. If you're looking for a great pub night.. go to O'Sheehans, awesome food and lots of things going on all around you. In the main atrium there is always something going on there.. movies, comedy, music or my personal favourite was the game shows that brought contestants out of the audience, definitely a must see if you are on this ship. There was even bingo in the theatre almost every day. I would definitely travel with Norwegian again, and I would certainly go on the Breakaway again. Next time we will be bringing our kids, there were so many things we said "they would love to do that" .

First time cruiser, this was amazing!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BA 14776
This cabin was spacious and comfy. I loved the view off my own deck everyday. It was the perfect place to unwind after a busy day of exploring and eating.
Our steward, Joseph, was amazing. He offered insight where he could about the ship or things to see in the different ports. Anything we needed he was available to help and provide. I love the towel animals he created and left for us each night.
Thanks Joseph.
