Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Review by Renee68
- Sail Date: March 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Spa Balcony Stateroom
Specialty Dining: We ate at Tepanaki which was good, we did that more for the fun. Ocean Blue which was REALLY good. Cagney's Steak House which is always good.
Excursions: Rum Tasting and Cultural Show in Belize City. We liked it, was good. Would recommend. Superman Zip line in Harvest Caye, my husband did it and loved it. Wellness Retreat in Costa Maya was ok. It was neat but the massage at the end was not a real massage. Would not do that one again.
Tips: If you go out of NOLA, park in the Whale lot. The terminal is not as nice as the ones in FL, it's very small, be prepared for it to be a bit of a cluster. Tips, I know you already are paying your tips, but the staff on these ships don't get paid a lot, giving even $2 when you order your drinks will get you the best service, these folks will appreciate it and will remember you, trust me. You don't even need to EVERY time, just now and again. Keep in mind these guys work 12-hour shifts 7 days a week. Guest services has a hole punch. If you bring a lanyard, you can actually clip your key card onto your lanyard instead of in the sleave and have less risk of losing your card. ALso know that when the ship is in US waters, any drinks you purchase you will be charged the tax. Best way to know is if the shops are closed, you are being charged the tax on your drinks.

Belize CityWe were given a tour of Travelers Liquor and tasted 6 different rums as we saw a history of how rum came to Belize and moved to the US as well as the aging barrels in the back. We then saw a show then taken to the tasting room for more tastings.View All 12,792 Belize City Cruise Port Reviews

CozumelIt was good, mostly lots of shopping. We were entertained by the vendors trying to get us in their shops by telling us to come see the best "Mexican junk" or "junk we don't need".View All 6,685 Cozumel Cruise Port Reviews

Harvest CayeSuperman Zip Line, husband loved it. We didn't stay on the island as it didn't seem like it was worth it to stay there and pay for food and drinks when you can get food and drinks for free on the ship.View All 1,121 Harvest Caye Cruise Port Reviews
