Great Trip 3rd time

Jul 17th, 2019

This was our 4th Norwegian Cruise. Some things are better some are not. Don't overpack. Bring plenty of sunscreen. Ask yourself if you really need to wear a speedo or a thong. There are some views I will ( sadly ) never forget.

July '19 Breakaway

Jul 17th, 2019

I made an appointment at the SPA early on a "Port" day so that I could receive a 15% discount. Since we were not "technically" docked at the start of my session, I was not extended the advertised discount. Additionally, the price listed on the Norwegian App was not the amount charged-despite the SPA acknowledging that they knew the pricing had not been updated on the APP. I felt ripped off twice.

Just returned from our second cruise, the first with Norwegian. On the Breakaway where it was a "spring break" like atmosphere, not family oriented like our previous cruise. Pool area way too small for 4000+ people. Not enough chlorine in this world for us to use the pool, not enough seating pool side even if it was a larger pool. Our room was not made up for the kids 2/7 nights. Food was good that's about the only redeeming quality. Definitely will not be sailing again with this cruise line. Not recommended for families with children although their kids program Splash was fantastic they never wanted to leave maybe because it was the only thing for them to do?

Great cruise with great ports and entertainment

Jul 15th, 2019

Overall, the cruise and ports were fantastic. We loved the ship, the food and the excursions. We were a little skeptical at first about booking excursions that were not part of Norwegian directly, but we had nothing but a perfect experience with both excursions we booked. The ship was beautiful, the food was excellent and the people were amazing. Roatan and Costa Maya were our favorite stops. We highly recommend this cruise!

A hit and miss cruise

Jul 14th, 2019

This cruise had some high points (the rock wall, ropes course, water slides and some of the dining options). It also had many low points (cigarette smoke you couldn't avoid, some to the dining options, the awful drinks package for kids). Based on my experience I am seriously considering not taking another Norwegian cruise.

Very relaxing, wonderful cruise

Jul 14th, 2019

Even though ship was booked full, I rarely felt overwhelmed with the amount of people. Caveat to that is that I did not visit pool on sea days. Otherwise, crowd was not a problem. Cruise went very smoothly and I had a great, relaxing time on this ship. Staff was friendly, food was of good quality, and activities kept me entertained. The reviews had me concerned prior to me embarking but those concerns were unfounded. I enjoyed the Breakaway and the ports visited. I would do again and also recommend without hesitation. Only “complaint” is my Wi-Fi experience. I paid for premium access and that was a waste. Wi-Fi was spotty, although access to social media was never an issue.

The cruise was very fun and a nice way to relax from school. Activities on the boat are fun and the ports were nice for tours.
