This was our 5th on NCL. Always liked it for the kids and better than average food. This time, I was bullied into a family suite in the Haven. Overall: 1. The booking process and dealing with NCL people off and onboard was uniformly pleasant even though I had a minor pricing kerfuffle pre-sail that we worked out. Very service oriented. Good for NCL. 2. Cabin is well laid out with ...

We chose to cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway for a number of reasons. 1. My 23 year old daughter is a Broadway fan and has been wanting to see Six and since she just completed a difficult semester of physical therapy school we decided it would be a nice holiday treat. 2. We are very covid conscious and were comfortable with the precautions that were being taken by Norwegian to keep guests safe, ...

Chose the cruise because it was fit in with the school holiday calendar and was originally planned for the end of August. Had to reschedule to Christmas break and cruising out of New Orleans was the only option. The port was a little crazy having to get the Covid test and the bus driver not really having a clue as to where and what the protocol was. But once we got on the ship everything was ...

Overall, Breakaway Norwegian is very nice and clean. For me, the best dining options were The Manhattan, Ocean Blue, Taste, and Savor. The lone bad dining experience was at Hibachi Restaurant. The food was not good and the chef was terrible. My wife and I laughed the entire time due to the disbelief of how bad it really was. However, that one lone bad dining experience would not sway me ...

We worked with a Travel Agent who presented us with 3 cruise options that met our time and finacial requirements. The NCL Breakaway worked best with our schedule and budget. The minute we arrived at the pier, we were directed to a nearby hotel where we had our Covid test done. The testing process was so well organized and streamlined. It took about 15 minutes to get our results back. Once we ...

Loved our 7 day out of NOLA leaving on 12/12/21. My girlfriend, now fiancé, and I last cruised 2 years ago (pre-COVID) so didn't know what to expect. NCL knocked our expectations out of the park. We felt safe, healthy and ready to have fun the entire cruise. All the staff was friendly, and entertaining. Definitely see "The Six" and the "Syd Norman Band" if you love music and entertainment. We ...

We chose the Breakaway because the close proximity to home as we live in northern Mississippi. This cruise was very unique as we encountered the aftermath of the Cruise prior coming back with 17 positive covid Cases. I will try and be as detailed as possible: Night before Cruise: We stayed at the Hyatt right across from the Pier and was also right next door to the Marriott where they where ...

This cruise was to celebrate my sister's retirement. The benefits of booking a Haven suite are fantastic. I spoke with the concierge a few times before our cruise & was given accurate information & told of benefits I didn't know about. Our cruise was delayed by many hours because the cruise that arrived in the morning of the day we were leaving had COVID cases. NCL had to meet with the CDC to get ...

Nothing you couldn't live with out.my husband had a scooter which we were ...

We were the last cruise before the COVID started. This was my 6th cruise (2nd on Norwegian). First I must say the cruise line did an exceptional job of keeping the ship clear & cruisers safe. (All public restroom doors open, servers at the buffet, no salt/pepper, cream/sugar on tables, etc.) The reason for this review - The Norwegian Getaway is the most poorly designed ship I have ever been on. ...
