Cruised out if new Orleans. Embarkation was easy and quick. Overall, ncl food was pretty good. Better that carnival dream. Ncl Taco shells on Mexican night buffet were perfect... Crunchy at fist bite and then melts in your mouth. Ricotta cheese cake was amazing. There other cakes were a bit dry. Service in dining rooms were slow. On carnival dream, each server addressed us by name and service was speedy. On the breakaway, only the host seating us greeted us by name. Lots of activities available for kids and adults on both ships. I think breakaway ship had more sport activities such as a ropes course, climbing wall and jump pad. The carnival dream had a high energized party atmosphere. Ncl had plenty of activities and lots of choices but was not as energized. Hiwver, the quality of the shows in the theater was significantly of higher quality. Dream shows were tacky. Our primary choice of activity is the thermal spa. Although smaller, we liked the thermal spa set up much better on the carnival dream. The ncl thermal spa was noisy and it was difficult to relax on the heated lounge chairs. Guests put there belongings on the chairs and prevented others from using it. On the dream, we didn't experience that. On the dream, the various features we're in separate rooms and it was much quieter and relaxing. However, the dream spa staff were constantly trying to sell services. The ncl staff did not push at all. If I were to sail out if new Orleans I would choose the carnival dream simply because of the better spa features. However, for better food, more activity choices and higher quality theater shows I would choose ncl breakaway. Read Less

We choose this cruise because our friends son’s senior trip. We were all celebrating. This cruise has us wishing we’re were back on the boat. We had so much fun. The boat was very clean. We had a balcony cabin and it was just perfect.we went to a little bar early in our trip called Sid Norman’s the Guilty Pleasures was playing 80’s music. This show was amazing and we went back every night they were playing. It was so much fun and the kids on stage are amazing. We left with wanting more. They did a great job it was fantastic. Debra, Grant, Niki and Billy put on an amazing show time after time. I also want to pay kudos to the Japanese restaurant we eat at. The name started with a T. The food and entertainment was really good. The island of Belize also won us over. The white sand beaches. We can’t wait to go back. Read Less

My husband and our two kids decided to take our family vacation on a cruise this year... after much research and obviously not enough reading of reviews, we chose to sail on the Norwegian Breakaway. We prepaid all the service fees and pre booked all our excursions so that we could relax and not have to worry.... wrong! We booked with several promotions included in our trip...or do we thought. Our $50 onboard credit was nowhere to be found on our bill so after several trips to the customer service desk, sand two other people beside us having the same issue, we left disappointed!! $50 is not the end of the world but we expected the cruise line to honor their promotions..beware of these promotions. We all had the drink packages....my husband and I the liquor package and the kids had the soda package... what a joke. We could have at least saved the $70 we spent on the kids because they couldn’t get a drink from the bar without us... and well let’s face it... this ship is nothing but bars. Speaking of bars, I hope you like standing in line... the service is atrocious! These employees avoid eye contact at all cost. And you pay a heavy service fee for no service. Even the sit down restaurants leave everything to be desired... cafeteria food at its best and again atrocious service! The excursions were amazing... after we waited in line for 30 minutes at guest services to get our passes that were supposed to be left on the room since we prebooked. The service of our room was touch and go... out room was always cleaned but we had to search the hall for someone to get us toilet paper... there is never anyone available at the housekeeping number and it will tell you to call back.... very frustrating! We preordered water bottles... yes you should do this since only a couple of the bars actually have water bottles... but they are warm... and no need to have them empty the mini bar to store your water like we did because the refrigerator was room temperature. All in all this was the most disappointing family vacation I’ve ever taken... thank the lord the islands and people there were amazing! Read Less
