  3. Norwegian Breakaway
This was our 14th cruise our 5th on Norwegian. I am 72 years old and my wife is 69. She uses a rollator to get around. We chose to leave out of Cape Canaveral as it is close to our home. We parked at a remote lot and took the bus to the ship That was great. Embarkation was fast and easy. Because of my wife's problems and since there were no disabled cabins available we took a Mini Suite. Outside of a bathtub there is no difference from a regular cabin except the price!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The steward was not the best ie no clean towels at night. The ship itself seemed to be poorly designed with reguard's to the public areas. Sound whet from the atrium and blended with the smoke from the casino and you had trouble ordering at some of the dining rooms due to the noise and the smell of old smoking from the casino. The Lifeboat drill was not well organized It took oven an hour with no place to sit for most people at there stations. The cruise director's English was hard to understand. While the food was good in the dining rooms the specialty rooms were better. The 3 ports were ok but the Great Stirip cay was not worth getting off the ship. The only good thing was getting to see and rind in the tenders from the OLD Norway! All in all the trip was not of the quality and value of past Norwegian Trips The entertainment was ok but again not up to the past trips. Disembarkation was fast and easy

Could have been much better
