Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by rattanchair
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: The Haven Aft-Facing Penthouse with Balcony
Luggage is promised before 8pm, so plan on wearing your day wear to dinner first evening. At Haven check-in you should receive a nice leartherette key card holder. Use it after you go through security. Security had us remove card to scan while holding up line trying to remove it while juggling our carry-ons. Got our bags at 3:30.
Toilet came with a new unwrapped roll of toilet paper, a small, but welcome amenity.
Had concierge Roy. Amiable gentleman, who warned us that should we order any specialty restaurant entrée, it would be through our butler and ONLY to our cabin; and do not expect it to be hot. An honest ‘heads-up’. There are absolutely no tables for two in Shanghai Noodle Bar or Teppanyaki. One is crowded in with the rest of creation. (Yes , I am an elitist, and thought I was paying for an elitist experience). Roy also advised us that there was no guarantee of a time or what evening he could get us into a specialty restaurant. Since we dine at 6:15 every evening, we were ‘forced’ to take our meals every evening in the never changing Haven Restaurant. No problem for me since I get broiled chicken every night at home, why should it be any different on NCL?
The doorways leading from the interior of the ship to the decks requires one to push a button to open the sliding doors. Not as hygienic as motion detector type, but I am sure it must help NCL’s bottom line.
If you enjoyed this so far, please look up my ‘Observations from the Breakaway Haven” on the CC boards, especially for those of you that take umbrage. I think I defended myself quite well there.

Harvest CayeGot off and walked around. Very impressed. CLEAN! One of the best, but we walked back to ship to take advantage of our balcony.View All 1,121 Harvest Caye Cruise Port Reviews
