LOVED THE ITINERARY AND THE SHIP

Transatlantic cruises are such a great value and this particular cruise visited 4 different ports after embarking in Copenhagen. Wonderful friendships are made during this 14 day cruise and we love the rest and relaxation during the final days of the cruise after some super excursions. Our best excursion was in Ponte Delgada and was arranged by Darlene through Cruise Critic.....be sure to check ...

It's a long time at sea when the decks are often closed

Part of a group of two Australian couples, we were looking forward to this cruise as something a little different. (This is our 6th cruise) This was the second of a back-to-back cruise holiday. The first cruise also on the Breakaway (Russia & Scandinavia from Copenhagen) was fraught with problems so we were hoping for a better experience. Our planned 5pm departure came and went and at ...

Dining room had a lot to be desired but the specialty restaurants were excellent

I am a platinum member and when we got to our suite I never received the specials for platinum members...had to ask for them..ex bathrobe extra towels also had to go to guest relations for my laundry and extra specialty coupons. Sometimes had to wait over 60 mins for food in restaurant and café food was luke warm. Some of our group of eleven did not receive the correct free spending allotment ...

To be fair we chose this cruise for the itinerary…not the ship. However, the ship was a big disappointment. The upper decks were closed for the vast majority of the cruise and there were no accommodations made even though there were 4000 people jammed in the lower decks. They have 3 main restaurants and they were almost never open at the same time. We utilized the “pay’ restaurants 6 times and ...

We chose this transatlantic cruise mainly because of the ports offered. When we booked, Amsterdam was to be the first stop from Copenhagen. This was changed to Gothenburg, Sweden....very disappointing, but all the other ports remained the same. First the pros of this mega ship: Balcony cabin storage was plentiful Angle balcony was larger than others but due to wind and weather, we only ...

We thought it would be fun. We were not particularly impressed by the Breakaway and would not go on it again. There is not enough spaces available to get away to, because it was cold outside. We heard this from others as well. The best spots were always taken by those who got up very early in the morning and we could never sit by a window. The Atrium was too small to handle everything and ...

Actually it was a YMT offer which they selected NCL not us. However, we chose it for combination of reasons: time of year, price, a cruise with bus trip in U.S. and ports of call were of interest. We were a little disappointed port changed from Amsterdam to Gothenburg but it was a lovely city and we enjoyed ourselves. Let me start with we have cruised 3x before so have a comparison, first time ...

Great cruise itinerary, just bad weather

This was the second part of our back to back cruise holiday, after doing a nine day Baltic cruise, unfortunately the bad weather continued. Tropical storm Leslie hung around the North Atlantic for over a month, with 40 knot winds and 3 to 5 metre swells making life on board uncomfortable on most days. We did make all of our ports on this cruise and we enjoyed good weather while in each of the ...

We did the Transatlantic Cruise previously on a May sailing and enjoyed it. This cruise was less enjoyable than the previous cruise. Activities were held in the Atrium which did not have room enough for the 3000+ people on the ship. Service in the restaurants has declined. Dinners took 2 hours to complete. Meals that were served in the complementary dining rooms were very basic with no WOW ...

Ship too big, activities too few

Review for Norwegian Breakaway to Transatlantic

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We made a mistake in booking a cruise on this ship. It was too big for our liking and had too many passengers (even though it was not full). Many activities, such as they were, were in the atrium where it was very difficult to find a seat. This class ship has no central elevator, meaning my partially disabled husband had to walk many extra steps every day. Even with reservations in the main ...
