Outstanding service by crew vs quality of food

We were sailing out if NYC parked the car in the terminal lot at noon when we had a scheduled appointment..and had to walk a city block to be Covid tested ( 2 tests) in another terminal...It took over 4 hours in the hot terminal waiting in line after line. ! You got the results back from the rapid Covid and we’re approved you get a wrist band and then told to truck on back to the first terminal ...

My wife and I just did the 7 night NCL cruise on the Breakaway from NYC - our first post COVID cruise. I wanted to share what to expect in a Bermuda cruise now since it was hard for me to find current info. Overall, we had a great cruise vacation thanks to the 40% capacity (2000 instead of 5000) and our good fortune with weather (we departed on 10/31 - the prior cruise ended up stuck in rough ...

We had cruise credit from a cancelled 2020 Caribbean cruise and decided to use it on this Bermuda cruise. We arrived in NY the day before and stayed at the nearby Midtown Comfort Inn and walked the one block to the port in the morning. I struggle with motion sickness, especially on the Pacific, and figured with this cruise I was guaranteed 2 1/2 days of land. A few of the Bermuda cruises in the ...

This was our first cruise post covid shut downs. Ncl canceled our original Boston to bermuda cruise and 3 others due to covid. We had booked the joy out of Miami for the same week, we had a haven suite and of course they canceled that on us without explanation. Since we had that week scheduled off from work the Breakaway out of NYC is what we rebooked. They jacked the prices and we now had to ...

First let me say the NCL is doing a great job making sure the passengers feel safe and comfortable on the ship without the scent of antiseptic or over powering disinfectants. the staff is masked at all times but you do not feel uncomfortable. The Ship was 1/3 to capacity and this made getting around easy. The restaurants were great, and the ship staff could not make you feel more ...

The Haven Experience on the Breakaway to Bermuda

Wife and I celebrating our 30th anniversary stayed in a 2 bedroom suite in the Haven Courtyard. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. This review will be very Haven centric. 1. Boarding in New York was straightforward, but somewhat delayed. After doing the required testing with EuroFins, we arrived at the Haven check-in room around 10:40 only to wait about 90 minutes before being permitted ...

I have sailed Norwegian over 15 times, and the service has always been good, and cleanliness was always a priority even before pandemic. This cruise was different being the first since COVID that I have been on one. The service was 10 times superior, everyone grateful and appreciative. The food however was not up to Norwegians standard or my past experiences. Cagneys was excellent as always, ...

My husband and I love to cruise, we are loyal to NCL and we booked this last minute cruise to Bermuda on the Breakaway for our 35th wedding anniversary. We upgraded to the Penthouse Suite in the Haven; it was our very first Haven experience and it was spectacular! We cannot say a single bad thing about this cruise other than it wasn't long enough! We enjoyed every single minute of it but we ...

Being Canadian in a small town with very very low covid cases it was hard to book this cruise. Looking at cases in Toronto, New York and Bermuda, we went ahead and booked. With safety in mind the extra tests didn't bother us, other than the price to get the tests done. $225, $40. This is our 27th cruise so we knew to follow Cruise Critic for all the info we would need. Over all it was a great ...

The overall cruise was above average. We enjoyed the freestyle part of the cruise. The main reason we gave it an above average score was we had to switch rooms due to a foul sewage smell in our room. We also had an issue with our upcharge dining at Cagney's steakhouse. They sat us then told us that we didn't have the right package for this dinning experience. We had to go to Guest services ...
