Overview

Built in 2013 and refurbished in 2018, the 3,963-passenger Norwegian Breakaway pleases passengers with a lively atmosphere and family-friendly amenities.

Offerings include two Aqua Parks (one of which is especially for children), a three-level Sports Complex with a ropes course, and specialized kids and teens clubs. In addition to a smattering of daytime activities, the ship contains more than 25 dining options, including three new seafood venues. Other options include three main dining rooms, a noodle bar and a popular steakhouse. Entertainment ranges from comedy acts to rock 'n' roll shows.

As far as cabins go, categories range from small Studio accommodations for solo travelers to Oceanview, Balcony and Mini-Suite cabins, as well as Spa designated rooms with extra perks. For even more luxury, guests can spring for a Haven category cabin, which offers more space, a private balcony and access to private dining and lounge areas. Even with the ship's massive size, the 1,657 crew members on board ensure that service is still a priority.

In 2018-19, Breakaway sails from New York City, Miami, New Orleans and Port Canaveral (Orlando) to Caribbean destinations, as well as from Berlin and Copenhagen for sailings throughout Europe
