This was my first cruise and I must say the overall experience was fair. Document check was quick and smooth. Norma provide us with spot on service with a smile. Boarding the ship was quick and effortless and the room available sooner than expected. Even luggage arrived in a timely fashion. News letter was a great help and informative. The trip listed 4 ports, we got to see two. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Shows were spectacular! Food awesome! Service excellent! Specialty restaurants excellent also. Thanks so much to executive chef Kevin Greene for personally delivering me sugar free desserts every day! So awesome. Made my trip so special. To top it off, hit a royal flush in the casino! Negatives: ncl collects a lot of extra money on bingo, deal or no deal, etc. prizes are small in ...

What I did like about this cruise is that we got a cheap upgrade to a balcony on the forward of the ship. We arrived at the port at 9am and were surprised to get parked so quickly especially in NYC. The Embarkment went well. The food, the steward, and cleanliness was all good. Food was available 24/7 and not just junk food like pizza. The shows were all good except the Rock of Ages show was not ...

I was on this ship before and did not like it at all. We got a free cruise from the casino and tried it again this past week and I was pleasantly surprised.Everything went smoothly and the food was excellent. We ate in the dining room 1 night and the waitstaff, service and food were outstanding. We ate in the specialty restaurants the other nights--my favorite was the beef tenderloin in Le Bistro ...

I chose this cruise as I wanted to embark close to my home and not deal with the hassle of an airport. It was a wonderful and easy process to embark on the cruise. Process was quick. The ship itself was beautiful and clean. My room with a balcony was well worth the extra money. Sleeping with the door open and listening to the waves is a calming experience i will never forget. I was extremely ...

While this review will be lengthy, hopefully it will be packed with info!. Sailed with a total of 11 people ranging in ages from 9 months old to 65 years old I do NOT fly. I have never flown so I get around by cruise ships. I sailed on the Breakaway April 8 to the 15th. I was on floor 14 midship. I always make sure to cruise midship due to horrible seasickness I get. I was in the front ...
