Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by Teresaann0719
- Sail Date: August 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
The cruise overall was nice but nothing gave me the ‘wow’ factor. Service, food, entertainment, activities, cabins, excursions, etc were all average. Our service at Cagneys was exceptional but our service at La Cucina was horrible. Our meal took 2 hours which was ridiculous. Buffet was good for breakfast and lunch. Food and service in Taste and Savor was average.
One thing that our group had an issue with was the pool area. We had ‘kids’ ranging 12-21. The main pool is adult only and the kid pool is really kiddy (not really fun for kids over 10). So we were never able to all go in the pool together. I spent my time by the kid pool watching my son be splashed and ran into by small children acting crazy, while my brother and nieces were hanging out by the main pool where all the entertainment was. I understand the need for an adult pool but it should not be the main pool!! I have cruise 3 other cruise lines and have never encountered this problem. The adult pool was off in a secluded area where adults only were able to hang out. The main pool was for families. This was a big disappointment for our group of 8.
Also, I noticed a sewer smell on the ship. It was not everywhere but I did smell it horrible in public restrooms and when our toilet seat in our cabin was up. Things were clean but did have a odd smell.
Entertainment was disappointing. Burn The Floor was horrible. Boring and unentertaining. Rock of Ages was much better but was very long.
Overall the cruise was nice but I would not cruise Norwegian again. I think you get a better experience for your money on other cruise lines.
