  3. Norwegian Breakaway
We had a great time on the Breakaway. Our only disappointment was the behaviour of the other passengers who we found to be most unreasonable given the difficult circumstances the captain had to face. Sadly one passenger had to be medically evacuated from the ship (I can’t imagine how worried their family would have been.) The captains actions could have saved that persons life. Yet people were complaining that we missed the Bahamas since the ship had to turn around and backtrack a long way in order for the helicopter to be in range for the evacuation. St Thomas was another missed call due to a tropical storm, I’m glad we were kept safe in the port of San Juan. I understand no other cruise ships made it to St Thomas that day too. We loved the ship and the entertainment too, particularly the duelling pianos in headliners they were hilarious! We enjoyed watching a show every night in the theatre. The food was great, we used the garden cafe quite often as we have a teenage daughter and the great variety suited us all. Also dined in Savour and The Manhattan lounge with Late nights in O Sheehan’s after the casino too! Sometimes the bar service was a little slow but we still got served. We’ve already taken advantage of the cruise next deal and look forward to sailing with Norwegian again.

Great cruise

Cabin Review

Family Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin M2 12788
First time we’ve a balcony and we loved it. Our cabin steward was friendly and did a great job. We found the cabin to be a good size for the 3 of us.
