had terrible service at bars. bar tenders worked hard, but needed help to keep up. Drink package extremely too high. traveling friend did not drink, but was forced to pay $1,700 for both if interested. I just didn't drink that much on cruise. Just ok service at restaurants, even the specialty ones (3). Both cabin beds felt like they had nails poking out of them. Had to take pain pills to get ...

We choose this cruise for the drink and dining packages. Great value. Specialty dining was awesome. Food was excellent and service was exceptional . Main dining was typical. Service was slow and wait staff unattractive. Nice variety on buffet. It was fresh and well maintained. Norwegian does lack in late night dining options. Only one 24 hour food option for the whole ship. Hard to get into dining ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This cruise was chosen by my sister. There were 8 of us on this cruise and we all enjoyed it. We went deep sea fishing in Roatan, which turned out to be a dud. Nit a bite, not a nibble, and the boat had only 4 poles out for the 6 people on board. I felt we should have gotten something, a voucher for onboard gambling, a dinner or something. I know there is no guarantee you will catch fish,but these ...

We have been on 10 cruises and this ship was the largest. 4000 people and we did not notice it to be overcrowded in any one place with the exception of O'Sheehans on one day following an excursion. Book your reservations to activities early; ie specialty restaurants and shows . This will save you from aggravation later. The cruise was very enjoyable in many ways. We noticed there were only one ...

The breakaway is a Beautiful ship with a wonderful crew The speciality restaurants were all outstanding Both the food and the service! We enjoyed the waterfront area both during dining service and just as a quiet place to read during the day. The garden Cafe was clean with a good selection of foods. We had a balcony port aft. 9th deck. The room was good but the bed was in need of ...

12 hour embarkation delay and poor communications from NCL.

Itinerary included nine Caribbean ports of call. Plus it presented opportunities for sightseeing in two very interesting cities: New York City and New Orleans, both highly recommended. Unfortunately, the first day of the cruise was marred by the 12+ hours embarkation delay arising from a medical emergency and search for a cargo ship crew member, as well as strong currents and adverse weather ...

A day late leaving New York - boarding was a total mess, muster at 3am may have amused the children ? Ship stunk like the bottom of an overfull ash tray ! They allow smoking in the casino which permeates throughout the ship...... YUK ! Food was boring and very average, staff in main dining under trained or just inept. Swimming pools were unbelievable small deep and very inaccessible by the ...

We chose this cruise for a number of reasons: The itinerary gave us 3 vacations in one: we had never been to New York City, we wanted sunshine and heat on our vacation, and we had never been to New Orleans. We had 2 full days in NYC before the cruise; the 14 days in the southern Caribbean had beautiful hot sunny weather and we had 2 days in New Orleans after the cruise was over. Also, we have ...
