  3. Norwegian Breakaway
We chose this cruise because my friends got a special deal with their travel agent. We have been on many cruises with Norwegian and Carnival. This is Norwegians "bad" experience for us. This ship was extremely overcrowded. There was no way to get near the pool or hot tubs. People crowded the pool and the edges of the pool so it was impossible to get near it. There wasn't an "adults Only" pool, We didn't get to see any of the free shows because they had to be booked in advance of the cruise. All entertainment areas were packed at all times and it was very, very difficult to get a seat anywhere. The cabin attendants must have been overworked because one night our cabin wasn't straightened nor clean towels provided. We had specialty dining as part of our package but we didn't know you had to make reservations to dine there before you ever got on the ship. The excursions were great but that was away from the ship. I do not ever want to book on this ship again.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB 10236
Enjoyed the cabin. Especially enjoyed having a coffee maker. The bathroom was the best thing on this ship. It had a great shower and double sinks. I guess that's why it was call a "mini suite".
