The hero squad was great from the guest services team down to the activities team. My husband and I loved how it was adult oriented, which does not mean that it did not exclude the children there were plenty of places for adults to hang out without having kids around, because we did not take our children on this one. Our room steward was more than helpful with everything. And with our spa balcony ...

I have been going through some personal problems. MY spouse and my Doctor suggested a cruise, because every one knows how fun they are and they thought it was the perfect thing. Well the first night the maître de was very rude when we asked to be put on the list for dinner. The hostess tried to be nice and told him that they still had a whole section they had not opened yet. The Maître de was very ...

My husband and our two kids decided to take our family vacation on a cruise this year... after much research and obviously not enough reading of reviews, we chose to sail on the Norwegian Breakaway. We prepaid all the service fees and pre booked all our excursions so that we could relax and not have to worry.... wrong! We booked with several promotions included in our trip...or do we thought. Our ...

Review of Norwegian Breakaway This was our first cruise ever. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and our budget did not permit a stay at a resort with the same amenities as the cruise ship. My husband was 110% convinced this was a good idea and asked that I give it a try. I was very skeptical and researched it WAY too much. Going in, I had a very low bar of expectations. Why? I read ...

It was our first family cruise with 2 kids. I do not even know where to start .... the staff were amazing, our cabin was always clean, beds made, fresh towels... and every time we would come back from all our activities, there would be an elephant, or penguin, or a puppy made from towels.... kids absolutely loved it!!!! The highlight for the kids, was of course... Splash Academy!!! Kids never ...

We sailed out of New Orleans on 04/07 for our five night cruise. Embarkation was easy and we were able to walk right onto the ship. Room was ready when we arrived so we got to unpack and relax for a bit. We chose to eat at O'Sheehans and the service and good were good. Ship itself was spacious and clean. Staff always made eye contact and greeted us. We chose the drinks package, dining package, ...

Cruised out if new Orleans. Embarkation was easy and quick. Overall, ncl food was pretty good. Better that carnival dream. Ncl Taco shells on Mexican night buffet were perfect... Crunchy at fist bite and then melts in your mouth. Ricotta cheese cake was amazing. There other cakes were a bit dry. Service in dining rooms were slow. On carnival dream, each server addressed us by name and ...

Went on the Breakaway out of New Orleans last year and it was not a great trip. Food was not great, staff not friendly. This year it was a different ship. Food was AWESOME, staff was way more friendly and the ship was a lot cleaner. But that may be from recently failing a health inspection and waiting on new inspection. Either way the ship was a lot better. The shows as always are great. ...
