So little to love

Review for Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Southern

Specialty dining: considering the food we had in Manhattan during the cruise we found it to be far and above the best restaurant on the ship. We found nothing special at all about the specialty restaurants. Mostly the food was bland (Cagneys) or in some cases inedible (Le Bistro - duck) and what we did like (La Cucina) could be found in Manhattan anyway (ravioli and gnocchi were exactly the ...

Great time out of the Big Easy

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 ...

Ship was clean, beautiful, & friendly employees. We really had a great time & would definitely do it again. Especially for the great price we paid. On & off the ship was a easy process. Only one thing maybe on disembark day have the slower older folks & handicaps get off at a different location. We got behind some that could barely handled their luggage & held up the line. Also, maybe next ...

Nice ship, but could use improvement in some areas

It was a good price for a 10 day cruise and I thought I'd give the big ships a try. I had only had one other "big ship" cruise on the Epic that was terrible. The room was nice, but I didn't find the brown carpet very cheerful. Our room steward was terrible. Room was dirty and things were not refilled/replaced. Quality of the room stewards seemed to go downhill immediately after NCL began the ...

We like to chase away the winter blahs with a cruise. Although we had been to the western Caribbean before we decided to try it again, this time only planning a couple of shore excursions. The Breakaway was a really nice ship. It offered many entertainment venues from dancing and singing shows to comedy. We had a mini suite which was not much larger than a regular balcony room. Our balcony was the ...

Totally Disappointed

This was my 4th NCL cruise and possibly my last! Last year we went on the Getaway and it was great so we thought the Breakaway would be great too, but boy was I wrong! Embarkation was a nightmare, lines for days, took close to 3 hours to get on board! Our stateroom was ready once we boarded and it was very clean, spacious and bed comfortable. The balcony was a bit small but adequate for ...

Somewhat disappointed with NCL this time

My husband and I wanted to see New Orleans and chanced upon this cruise. We cruised with NCL when we crossed the Panama Canal and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so we thought we would attach this cruise to our NOLA visit. We got upgraded to a balcony and really enjoyed it. There was no one looking onto us in the balcony and, even though we could hear our neighbours if they were to talk, we do not ...

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 ...

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. ...

We have only cruised on NCL once (NCL Star 2007 Mexican Riviera). Since then we've cruised Princess (Royal, 2016 Southern Caribbean) and Celebrity (2018, Western Caribbean). I don't remember a lot about the first NCL cruise except we liked the ship (easy to move around the ship probably because it was smaller, good food in the free restaurants although the wait lines were long, fairly easy to ...
