Kids enjoyed it, adults, not as much.

While we won’t return to the Breakaway, it was a vacation and we were on a cruise. It’s kind of hard to be mad about that!

Always great to be on a ship but so many things on this cruise where less than expected. Food needs massive improvement and overall service needs great improvement.

Western Caribbean early January Breakaway

Jan 13th, 2020

There were 4600 Passengers on this ship. 700 of them children. The first port of call was canceled because of weather. All in all it was a very enjoyable cruise. If you put a smaller ship (half the passengers) next to this one and gave me the option with the same itinerary, I’d go on the smaller ship.

We just returned from our first journey abroad the NCL Breakaway, she is a beautiful ship with the hints of Peter Max art work placed around the ship. Our first trip with water boxes, ncl,s way of trying to eliminate single use plastic.

Not a great experience

Jan 11th, 2020

Have been on many cruises before and this was one of my least favorites of all time. So much that I had the discretionary service charges removed. After I had gone to guest services on multiple occasions to correct charges, I have now left the ship & have a lot of random charges from NCL now and I am in the process of disputing. I gave cash tips where I felt it was deserved. There were things onboard we never even got to use because of the overcrowding etc. Still have plenty of other complaints unmentioned but I cannot go on with this review anymore.

A bad day on a cruise is better than a good day at work. With that being said, Breakaway leaves a lot to be desired.

Paid a lot, got a little

This was my second time on a Norwegian cruise. My first experience was similar to this one re: service staff being invisible, difficult to contact, and in some cases down right rude. Most people take cruises to be spoiled a little with great service and that was really lacking here.
