Bad ship, good stops

Review for Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Western

First Time Cruiser • Age Under 20

Not sure why most reviews give decent stars but bad comments, so I’ll be very honest with mine. This was my first cruise with my boyfriend and his parents, who have gone on a similar route with celebrity. We all agree the ship itself is no good, especially if you don’t have enough money. I travel often, am not picky, and like to make the most of any trip, but this cruise was key enough to make a ...

Just did two prior cruises on Celebrity and MSC, and NCL Breakaway was a dissapointment. Only good thing I can say is that the food was pretty good in most restaurants and that only one night we had great service at the Manhattan with Jay Deniso and Mauriel Often. Aside from that, the service and the wait was unbearable. The Garden Cafe should be serving the food as Celebrity was doing. ...

We have traveled on NCL several times over the past several years and they have gotten worse and worse. We started paying for higher level cabins but now the food has gotten to the point where it is like eating at golden corral. We were forced to eat in the main dining room the entire cruise because we could not get reservations for any other dining room since they had the Savor closed for ...

This cruise had been twice booked and twice cancelled due to Covid. We were both vaccinated and double-boosted and decided to try again. The cruise was very decent. The ship was maintained well and clean. All staff and crew wore masks which I appreciated. Most of the cruisers did not. There were supposed to be staggered embarkation times, but something went way wrong. We were severely ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We went on this cruise as a wedding guest. A few things were frustrating according to us and other (long-time) cruisers. Inability to access app prior to leaving port. Reservation issues (duplicating or not going through to the boat's system) on the app. Minimal options for things to do after 11pm. As for food, the buffet was great. I wouldn't recommend ordering anything from the complimentary ...

Premium plus package. Purchase because I like upscale wines. Premium wines are only available in the dining room and it will take an additional 15 minutes to convince staff the wine is included in the package. If they sit the wine on the table they assume you purchase the bottle and it will be placed on your bill. Only cheap bottles of wine is available to purchase by the bottle. Staff would ...

Saved by the staff - very disappointing cruise.

All the staff were lovely, and deserved better from the management who have made some awful business decisions. We've cruised with Celebrity and were keen to compare as we have never swerved from Celebrity before. As the say ' One and done'! Never book Norwegian again. And it was a similar price to Celebrity. Embarkation at NOLA was just awful....shouty officials and queues a mile long. 2 and ...

5 of us traveled on the Casinos at Sea promotions. When we arrived at the port, the wait time was over 1 1/2 hours to get to a desk to check in. There was no priority line for my mother, who was in a wheel chair, nor the Casinos at Sea invited guests. It was stifling hot in the indoor area where the line was. We finally were able to board the ship, and went straight to O'Sheehan's, which never ...

First time on Norwegian. Have cruised on Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. Had high hopes for this cruise line as they are suppose to be more “elite”. Let’s start with the positives. The STAFF is what stops this from being a completely negative review. They were all so nice, friendly and made you feel welcome. The cabin was okay. Same as other cruise lines. Unfortunately that’s ...

First look at the false advertisement NCL claimed to offer rock climbing and even currently they say this is offered on the breakaway, however you can see from my recent April 2022 photo the rock wall is gone. It was apparently removed during the covid-19 cruise stoppage period. They also closed the splash academy for child care and closed the kiddie splash pad swim area and blamed the closure on ...
