Sail Date: Mar 2020
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

The food in the 3 main complimentary dinning rooms took a trip in the wrong direction since our last NCL cruise aboard the Epic 3 years ago. Not only; the food that was offered, but the preparation of it took a couple of steps down the ladder. Much of it was over done and lacked in flavor. We ate in three specialty dining restaurants Ocean Blue, Moderno, and

Le Bistro. These restaurants were all very good with Le Bistro being our favorite.

With the threat of COVID-19 looming over the cruise the crew did a nice job of sanitizing the beast they could with the exception of the bar staff. To keep the thirsty passengers happy the bar staff worked at a feverish pitch but in doing so sanitation went overboard.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

My wife and I were on the NCL Breakaway for a 7 day cruise. I use a manual wheelchair with power assist (emotion). We were in cabin 11888 it was by far the largest accessible room that we have ever been in. There was plenty of room to maneuver all around the room. The bathroom; as well, was spacious and well laid out. The one disappointment was the narrow balcony. It was only about 3 feet wide which made it difficult to maneuver.

A negative point would be the bedding had a few small holes and the room steward did a mediocre job at best.
