Howl at the Moon made for a great cruise experience!!
"My husband chose this ship. I wasn't wild about going on another NCL ship because the last three or four cruises we have been on NCL. I liked the Breakaway because it was more modern décor and updated. I wasn't..."Read More

We arrived in Orlando and took an Uber to Cocoa Beach the day before the cruise. The beach is beautiful and we really enjoyed our evening. Next day our hotel provided transportation to the port. Ideally we would have arrived earlier because we ended up waiting in a very long line. However once we boarded the fun began! The Breakaway is a huge ship that has endless activities all day everyday. We ...

Let me start by saying I have been on many cruises. CCL, NCL, RCL, Disney and on the River Nile. Any time in the Caribbean in February is nothing I can complain about. Embarkation was pretty smooth. Debarkation was chaotic. I don't understand why St. Thomas was such a short stop. Either you went to the beach for a couple of hours or you shopped. No real time to explore St. Thomas or ...

Have spent over 50 nights on NCL. We have been on the large and Mid size ships. Overall Program is very good . Each Cruise ship has its own personality , regarding cruise and experiences. NCL attempts to maintain consistency and they do a good job at what they can control. Hear are the positives and negatives we experienced on this trip . ----Boarding and Departure- very good - The heavy ...

Rough seas, cold weather, beverages and food aplenty

While the seas were rough and the weather cold in Florida and the Bahamas, we had a lot of fun as first-time cruisers. Our trip took us from Port Canaveral Florida to Tortola BVI, St Thomas USVI and Great Stirrup Cay (Bahamas). We enjoyed the shopping, history and the beach the most of any of the islands in Tortola. St Thomas is very small and commercialized, but the Jet Boat ride is one to not ...

Worse ship Ever

This was the worst ship I have ever been on. I don’t know who designed it. By the main pool was so small I have seen bigger pools in peoples yards. This one is for 4000 guests. They offer a vibe for adults. We were on board by 1120 trying to sign into vibe and it was sold out. All week long we looked at vibes and saw hardly anyone there. The casino is open to the Atrium area, so all you smell is ...

This cruise was chosen for my kids & grand kids. The cruise was good ,crew members were friendly & accommodating. Cabin was alright enough storage but the balcony was to small. Dining was nice specially at OSheehan's, good food. Manhattan room was a nice dining experience with entertainment while you eat. This is first cruise I have been on where shrimp cocktail wasn't offered or Lobster at ...

NCL was our go-to cruise line for several years. My son wanted to try a larger ship so we took an Eastern Caribbean cruise on Breakaway. Been there, done that. Too many people for the size of the amenities. Tiny main pool. Difficulty getting a drink order during busy times and a horrible layout for smoking areas. The casino is a smoking area and unfortunately is open to the entire deck so after a ...

We were on this cruise because my Wife is a Sweet Adeline's International Champion/Queen and she was asked to fill in for a missing "Tenor" in a quartet that was part of the faculty/program for "Harmony 2020" onboard the Breakaway. There were about 80 people participating in this year's "Harmony" cruise. If my Wife hadn't been part of the faculty/program we wouldn’t have normally chosen this ...

I chose this cruise as a way of seeing the Virgin Islands for the first time. While the islands were fantastic, the standout feature of this trip was Norwegian's staff. They seemed truly concerned that we had a good experience. Teppenyaki was our first dinner reservation on the first day. The show put on by the chef was good. He juggled, told jokes, and interacted well with the people seated. ...

I just returned from a 7 day cruise on the NCL Breakaway. This is my 3rd NCL cruise and my 2nd time on the Break away (last sailing on this ship was 2015 out of NY). We booked a mini suite on deck 11 and paid for NCL's Priority Boarding ($99.00) per cabin, I arrived at 10am and were on the ship before 11am and was the quickest most pleasant boarding I have ever had! We rushed to get tickets to ...
