  3. Norwegian Breakaway
Alright first the Cons: I’ve been on breakaways sister ship the getaway 4 times and i know both ships are identical but their not. Breakaway wasn’t put together as well as her sister ship. What i mean is noise. I booked a studio cabin 11563 it was horrific. First thing is every morning at 6am the cleaning staff would start working on the floor. This included an access door that slammed so hard that my room would shake. And this door would slam shut almost every 10 seconds. I couldn’t understand it and counted the seconds in between.. The only conclusion i came up with is that the cabin stewards were intentionally going through this door to wake people up and get them out of their rooms so they could begin cleaning them. I mean horrifying loud. My other nightmare were these young kids who were booked in the studio cabins. Another nightmare. The punk in 11567 would invite his juvenile friends from across the ship to enter his cabin after 1am for a late night party. Leaving the studio cabins acess door unlocked for easy entry. I could hear every word until 4am where i called security twice that week. The other time i called security was when after midnight one night i could hear a girl screaming like she was being assaulted right down my hall. I’ve cruised 16 times on ncl and loyal to them as a platinum cruiser, but i will never return to breakaway. The pros: everything after was awesome. The specialty restaurants were excellent, i ate in both cagneys & la cucina incredibly delicious. Every day was sunny and bright and the pool packed with people. The bartenders were efficient and kind. I suggest giving them tips as this will insure a quick return on your money. They really appreciate it and most don’t tip. Atrium had great shows which were entertaining and fun as the atrium is the heart of the ship so arrive early. Loved all ports of calls except belize, because as a private island i don’t agree having to pay for everything. Ship staff was amazing and the bar manager sent me a bottle of red wine.
