Great time out of the Big Easy

We were just on this ship doing the Baltics in July and changed from the Pearl out of Tampa over T-giving. The embarkation was less than could be desired. It took almost an hour to go from the hotel to the port because of construction about 2 miles away, and then it was like nobody was expecting us when we finally got inside to check in. Thank goodness for priority. In July we had an Oceanview ...

Ship was clean, beautiful, & friendly employees. We really had a great time & would definitely do it again. Especially for the great price we paid. On & off the ship was a easy process. Only one thing maybe on disembark day have the slower older folks & handicaps get off at a different location. We got behind some that could barely handled their luggage & held up the line. Also, maybe next ...

We had read all the reviews possible prior to boarding on December 6th and we feared the worst. As we walked to board we asked a couple how they liked their cruise. They responded "fantastic." The embarkation process actually went quite well. There was the usual excitement while in the lines and it wasn't long before we had found a high table in O'Sheehan's, and ordered drinks and chicken ...

We like to chase away the winter blahs with a cruise. Although we had been to the western Caribbean before we decided to try it again, this time only planning a couple of shore excursions. The Breakaway was a really nice ship. It offered many entertainment venues from dancing and singing shows to comedy. We had a mini suite which was not much larger than a regular balcony room. Our balcony was the ...

10 Day Western Caribbean Cruise

We chose this Norwegian cruise for the ports of call. We have been to the Caribbean a number of previous times and we liked that this cruise was leaving from and returning to New Orleans, LA. We were interested in seeing Roatan Island, Belize, and Costa Maya. These were new stops for us. The Breakaway is the largest Norwegian cruise ship that we have been on. It had its good points and some ...

Nice ship, but could use improvement in some areas

It was a good price for a 10 day cruise and I thought I'd give the big ships a try. I had only had one other "big ship" cruise on the Epic that was terrible. The room was nice, but I didn't find the brown carpet very cheerful. Our room steward was terrible. Room was dirty and things were not refilled/replaced. Quality of the room stewards seemed to go downhill immediately after NCL began the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my first cruise. I liked the ship as a whole and had a fabulous time. I love the staff. They were helpful, professional, and seemed like they were glad to be there. They always went above and beyond whenever they could. The entertainment was always a blast. I love James and his piano. The Martini bar was wonderful, though I do not drink alcohol, however, I was always served as well as ...

Somewhat disappointed with NCL this time

My husband and I wanted to see New Orleans and chanced upon this cruise. We cruised with NCL when we crossed the Panama Canal and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so we thought we would attach this cruise to our NOLA visit. We got upgraded to a balcony and really enjoyed it. There was no one looking onto us in the balcony and, even though we could hear our neighbours if they were to talk, we do not ...

Just finished a 10 day cruise the Carribean with stops in Honduras, Belize etc. The food was great. We especially enjoyed the restaurants. All we visited were excellent. The smoke smell around the gaming area was awful. I paid the $75 for wi-fi but it was so difficult to work with. I used 9 minutes and finally just gave up. They charged me for the whole package despite my complaints of ...

This was my 4th NCL cruise and possibly my last! Last year we went on the Getaway and it was great so we thought the Breakaway would be great too, but boy was I wrong! Embarkation was a nightmare, lines for days, took close to 3 hours to get on board! Our stateroom was ready once we boarded and it was very clean, spacious and bed comfortable. The balcony was a bit small but adequate for ...
