  3. Norwegian Breakaway
The staff assisting with luggage getting on the ship was rude. No one really seemed to know which bus was going to the right ship. The main pool was very small and always too packed to enjoy the area. It was almost impossible to get a drink and the bar tenders were not friendly. The food was nothing to write home about. The dining options were plentiful, but the quality of food was average with the exception of a few places. Our kids were bored as there wasn't much for them to do. Two of the water slides didn't work the entire time we were on the cruise. Three of the four stops were actually very good and we enjoyed them. Roatan was the worst. It was a dump and not a very appealing place at all. I would encourage NCL to drop that from their list of places to stop. Belize and the two stops in Mexico were very nice and we enjoyed them. The other highlights were the two shows we attended. Burn the Floor and Rock of Ages were both very good and we enjoyed them. Overall, it was not something we will likely do again. We would rather find a resort or do a European trip rather than sit on a ship for multiple days. If you are traveling with kids, I wouldn't recommend this at all.

Terrible pools and little for the kids to do

Cabin Review

Family Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B2
It was ok. We had issues getting towels and we were charged for drinks from the mini bar that we didn't have.
