Good

Aug 17th, 2020

I had my wedding on this cruise. I definitely had a good time but it could have been better. This cruise is smaller than cruises i am used to so I did feel like the layout of this cruise was enclosed. The service I got on this cruise from bartenders and guest services was not the best. I felt like I was bothering them most of the time. I did have the drinking package though and the drinks were delicious most of the time. None of the staff were ever on the same page when it came to guest questions. I did not like the food at the buffet at all but I did enjoy the complimentary breakfast locations at the sit down restaurants. I did have the specialty dining package and those experiences were great! Especially the hibachi restaurant! Literally one of the best meals I have ever had! The room/janitorial staff were great! They made beautiful towel animals. The onboard activities were not fun in my opinion and the entertainment staff that coordinated onboard activities were rude at times. However, the entertainment staff that starred in the broadway type shows were breath taking! Overall, I did have a good time but there is always room for improvement.

Wonderful EasternCaribbean Cruise

Aug 5th, 2020

This was a fun cruise and we loved all the ports that we stopped at. Norwegian is a great cruise line and we can not wait to go back to the Caribbean.

Love it & Best for Solo Cruisers

Jul 29th, 2020

I really, really liked this cruise line and am glad that I took the chance. If you are a solo cruiser, I do not think there is another better program to meet new friends and have great people who are also cruising on their own. I still communicate with many to this day!

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.
