Norwegian Breakaway Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Norwegian Breakaway, the New York–themed follow-up to the popular Norwegian Epic, sails year-round from New York City to the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Caribbean. It's a large, 4,000-passenger ship offering a wide variety of restaurants (many specialty restaurants with cover charges) and entertainment and is particularly family-friendly.
Norwegian's newest class of ships is impressive, slightly smaller than Norwegian Epic but with improved flow in the main dining and entertainment district, 678 Ocean Place. A major innovation is the addition of outdoor dining at almost all specialty restaurants. You can check wait times and make reservations on digital screens throughout the ship. As on other Norwegian ships, entertainment is a strong suit and includes not only a Latin ballroom dance show and a full-fledged Broadway show. Norwegian Breakaway has a branch of Carlo's Bakery.
Outdoors, there an impressive ropes course on the sports deck, as well as five water slides and an aqua park for smaller kids. The kids and teen clubs are impressively large and offer a wide variety of programs and activities. The adults-only Vibe Beach Club has a cover charge. The ships' electronic screens now make reservations for dining and entertainment as well as giving wait times. Automated wine dispensers in the atrium and buffet let you buy a glass (or taste) whenever you want.
