  3. Norwegian Breakaway
We had friends from Wales tell us about this cruise with great perks. Since all of us have cruised at least 15 and none of them on Norwegian we were looking forward to a new experience. The reasons I give The Norwegian Breakaway this rating is as follows. The great: A) Ship is beautiful B) Our room was a fabulous room and bathroom C) The main shows we went to (except the magician) were top notch. D) The staff was mostly great. Especially, Boris the Art Director, and Claudius Cruise Staff. The bad: A) The venues were filled with very large furniture and could not hold the amount of people who wanted to watch the shows. ie: the Atrium & Syd Norman's. With over 3700 passengers, Norwegian should set up the ship to handle more passengers for these shows. B) You gave us such a nice room but filled it with cheap,single ply toilet paper? Same with the cheap, runny lotion? C) The cruise staff overall (except a few) were far below what we have experienced on our other 20 or so cruises. D) The Cruise Director was the WORST we ever had on any cruise. Not just my opinion but overall concensious. with many on the cruise ship.

Good cruise...not great
