Some specialty dining was included in the package we got and that was very good. The regular dining rooms were inconsistent - some pretty good meals and some not very good meals. My main complaint is that the smoke from the smoking areas drifts into the surrounding areas. There was a good noodle restaurant next to the casino but only ate there once because it was smokey. Enjoyed a quiet bar ...

We were nervous about cruising for such a long time but we discovered it was so great it wasn't long enough! Norwegian is excellent in all they do. The ship was in great shape, well maintained and clean. The service was personal and impeccable. The cabin was roomy with a nice closet with shelves. The bathroom was surprisingly spacious. Although if you were overweight you might not say that. ...

Right balance of sea days and port days

The Breakaway had just undergone a refurb not too long ago so everything had the new look and feel. Our cabin had nice carpeting. The bed was reasonably comfortable that we slept soundly every night. The best thing about this particular cruise was the value received for 10 days. And as my title suggests, it achieved the right balance of sea days and port days. I particularly appreciate the ...

Was looking forward to the 11 day cruise out of New Orleans. Have sailed on the Getaway twice and as the Breakaway is basically identical, could find my way around. I really love the Boardwalk feature as it provides a calm oasis away from the poolside hustle and noise, Always found a comfy chair to read or relax. Embarkation was smooth and quick once my friend was provided a wheelchair and ...

This was our 4th cruise with NCL and this ship and overall experience was mediocre. Crowding everywhere. Quality of Freestyle dining was poor. Staff were not as friendly as our previous NCL cruises. We will consider cruising NCL again but most likely not this ship. We are hoping that this is not an overall trend throughout NCL. Ship: seemed crowded everywhere we went. Pool Area: Small ...

The Breakaway is a fantastic ship! Embarkation was a fairly easy process, although there were thousands of people getting on board at the same time. Disembarking was fairly easy as well, although I thought that having to stand in line outside for an hour wasn't great. I thought that the groups were called too close together and too many people were trying to be scanned off at the same time. I ...

This 10-day getaway was the first cruise my husband & I have ever taken, & in anticipation of the crowds on a ship the size of the Breakaway we opted to splurge a bit & book in the Haven - best vacation decision EVER. As NCL pledged, being a guest of the Haven afforded us over the top perks during our entire cruise. From our initial embarkation in New Orleans to any chosen daily port embarkations ...

We were just on this ship doing the Baltics in July and changed from the Pearl out of Tampa over T-giving. The embarkation was less than could be desired. It took almost an hour to go from the hotel to the port because of construction about 2 miles away, and then it was like nobody was expecting us when we finally got inside to check in. Thank goodness for priority. In July we had an Oceanview ...

A Fab Time! Solo Haven

My complaints are so minor they slip my memory. DO keep in mind I was a solo traveler (female mid-50s) and in arguably the best cabin onboard for me (16704). Embarkation was a complete cluster. Think NYC traffic, bozos everywhere and a completely disorganized plan. For those of us that paid the large premium for Haven it was a dismal start. There was no marked line. I had the choice of ...
