  3. Norwegian Breakaway
We previously sailed in the Haven on the Escape. We were in the Haven Spa Suites on the Breakaway. The Haven was fantastic- great staff. Bartenders outstanding. Food in Haven either fantastic or bad. Also service very slow- two plus hours for dinner or fast. Lunch over an hour a couple times. Spa was great. Specialty dining Cagneys horrible- cold then next undercooked. Teppinayki- average at best La Cucina was great Shows were good - Burn the Floor and Rock of Ages enjoyable Howl at the Moon- not good Main areas of ship crowded with rude people. Chair hogs and those who crammed into elevator when no room. Buffet nasty. Kids cutting in line on slides- 4 year old with no parents watching. Person clipping toes on pool deck. Expect that on Carnival not NCL. Escape much nicer ship. There were good and bad things. Would cruise NCL again but not Breakaway.
