Disappointed. We sailed in the NCL Breakaway in the Caribbean the week before Christmas 2019, and were hoping to have a relaxing time, but couldn't during the day. The one pool is small and very crowded with young ...

Everything was great except getting to see entertainment

It's a very large, highly populated ship. The pool area could and should be bigger to accommodate the 4,000 plus guests. It's shoulder to shoulder in the pool area but there's a very busy bar and it has a great ...
