Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by Ocean Breezer
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom
We enjoy the casino, and we had so much fun in this casino. The servers, Soledad and Jerwin, were really on the ball. We never waited for a drink. We also enjoyed our chats with the casino host, Wei Seng Kuang. He was friendly and personable!
As stated in many reviews, the small adult pool is inadequate for the size of this ship. We did enjoy some entertainment around the pool. Loved the Sexy Legs contest. We found that Spice H2O was the perfect spot to enjoy the sun. It has rainfall showers and a very large waterfall feature, all designed to cool you off in the absence of a pool. There are also 2 hot tubs there. There were plenty of loungers, a nice ocean breeze and a bar with very entertaining bartenders!
We ate all breakfasts outside at the Margaritaville buffet. It was always empty and quiet. The Garden Cafe is way too noisy and active!! Go to the 16th floor to enjoy a peaceful breakfast.
Overall, the ship was crowded but there are plenty of nooks to escape the crowds. Service was spot on at all bars, all dining rooms and our cabin. We had a fun, relaxing vacation!

Costa MayaThis is a small, natural resort which I refer lovingly to as Gilligan's Island. The owner is hands on and very friendly. The entire staff wait on you from beginning to end! Fresh tacos for lunch were delicious! Staff take great care in getting you back to the ship on time! There are plenty of water toys included. Nice, relaxing beach day with phenomenal service. Nice break from the crowds on the ship. If you're looking for loud music and a party atmosphere, this is not for you.View All 13,320 Costa Maya Cruise Port Reviews
Fresh guacamole and homemade salsa were excellent!
Seaweed is a definite drawback. It is quite smelly and has marred Mexico’s gorgeous beaches!

CozumelWe tried a little shopping at the port. There is plenty of shopping right off the boat. The vendors were so aggressive that it became tiring and we just went back to the ship.View All 6,733 Cozumel Cruise Port Reviews

Harvest CayeSpent an hour at the beach on this private island. Thought the resort style pool was beautiful, but I am opposed to NCL charging it’s customers for food and drink that should be included in our cruise.View All 1,183 Harvest Caye Cruise Port Reviews
