The perfect cruise...

Apr 27th, 2020

This cruise was fantastic and the best cruise I've ever been on. I did a full video review on YouTube because it's way too much to type on here but just know I enjoyed every second. The food, activities, ports and service was all up to par. For my review search MrBucketlist Norwegian Breakaway to see why I thought this was the perfect cruise

Boring Cruise

Mar 31st, 2020

Overall it was a nice time however this was the last cruise prior to the cruise lines being suspended due to the coronavirus so lot some limitations were put on on board activities. Very unorganized at Ports!

Not the best, but we had fun

Mar 24th, 2020

This cruise was definitely not my favorite. We had really bad weather for the first 3 days, wind and big swells. Meant you couldn't really go outside so you had to stay inside and explore. We missed Great Stirrup Cay because it was unsafe for the tenders. We also had Vibe passes but were not able to use it at the beginning because it was closed due to the weather. All of that is beyond Norwegian's control and we knew that. Once the weather cleared up, we did enjoy ourselves more. Tendering process for both Grand Cayman and Cozumel was pretty dreadful. Very slow and unorganized. Partly Norwegian, partly the port of Cozumel. Due to COVID-19 there were healthy practices in place throughout the ship, like no self serve in the buffet, but none of it bothered us or took away from the cruise. Overall, we made the best of our trip, enjoyed lots of competitive games of darts, drinks, food and would recommend the ship and itinerary to anyone.

Waste of money

Mar 24th, 2020

The whole cruise was laid out horriably. There was not a lot of options for people with GI issues. All shows was booked when we got on board. The staff does not care about there guest. We were sitting on the balcony & they were cleaning the balcony above us. They poured cleaner all over us. THey offered to wash our clothes, but was told that was all that would be offered. We were dealt with rudely. My husband went to clinic, because his ear was clogged. They said it was 130 to see a dr to get peroxide.

Ended up being a Nightmare Cruise

Mar 22nd, 2020

Be real with your guest! This corona virus is serious and if we knew that someone on this ship was sick we could have taken extra precautions, now we are home hoping we don’t get sick! Will never sail Norwegian again! We should get a full refund for this excuse of a trip. Staff did all they could

Upsetting, lied to sickness

Mar 20th, 2020

In quarantine because of sickness on ship. I am sick waiting for test for virus. Lied to and not told about sickness on ship. Very upset with company. Do not feel like they were honest with what is going on in the United States. Told only keeping ship clean.
