No Better, No Worse...NCL Breakaway 12.06.2018

Review for Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Southern

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my first cruise. I liked the ship as a whole and had a fabulous time. I love the staff. They were helpful, professional, and seemed like they were glad to be there. They always went above and beyond whenever they could. The entertainment was always a blast. I love James and his piano. The Martini bar was wonderful, though I do not drink alcohol, however, I was always served as well as ...

If you want a cheap price this is the boat. The overall staff was not friendly. They nickel and dime you. Soda $4.45 water bottle you pay. Shows that were free you would not pay to see couple of the shows they wanted $44.00 or something for the shows. We did not see Grand Cayment we were told because rough waters but 2 other ships tendered there passengers onto the island. If you want to see ...

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 ...

Tons of illness, trashy people, staff lack of communication

This cruise was a very last minute booking to celebrate a 70th birthday and an anniversary. No prior research was done which was out of our ordinary. We usually research, book, then research some more on any vacation we do both in and out of country. With that being said....the outcome was worse then anticipated. We are local from Nola and had heard about the Breakaway being first of its kind ...

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 ...

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 ...

I have been on many cruise lines and enjoyed them all. This was the worst experience I have ever had. They charge $7.95 for every room service order! They charge $.99 a minute to get on the internet unless you pay a $100+ fee, and that still limits your time. Our shower was consistently lukewarm or cold. They take forever to make any repairs and we we usually got a message to call back later. ...
