From the Freestyle dining made famous throughout the fleet to the elegant, private dining of the Haven, Norwegian Breakaway offers a superb selection of cuisine.
When it comes to complimentary dining, the excellent array of restaurants included in your cruise fare means you'll never have to eat the same meal twice on NCL Breakaway.
Dining onboard Norwegian Breakaway can be even more exciting thanks to the ship's tempting speciality restaurants. Available for a supplementary cost, these fantastic eateries are well worth splashing out on:
NCL are renowned for their entertainment, and like the rest of the fleet, Norwegian Breakaway has more than enough to keep everyone entertained once evening arrives. For live entertainment, look no further than the sparkling onboard theatre. Shows here range from energetic ballroom dancing courtesy of Burn The Dance Floor to Howl At The Moon’s piano duelling, a circus show gone wrong courtesy of Escape The Big Top.
Once the curtain closes, the night is still young on NCL Breakaway, and with so many bars and lounges to explore, you'll never have to visit the same place twice. If it's a quiet drink in a relaxing atmosphere that you're looking for, the centrally located Atrium Bar or Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar are bound to delight. Meanwhile, for those looking for a place to dance away the evening, party under the stars at Spice H20, sing your heart out at Syd Norman's Pour House or head inside to the Bliss Ultra Lounge to show off your moves. Other venues onboard include:
Kids and grown ups alike will love the activities available on Norwegian Breakaway. The Aqua Park is a must visit thanks to its five slides, two swimming pools and four hot tubs, perfect for both exhilarating rides and relaxing by the water. There's even a dedicated kids area so even the youngest guests can make a splash.
Finished at the water park? Head to the Sports Complex for some adrenaline pumping activities, including an exciting high ropes course, as well as the chance to walk The Plank, a thin platform extending 8 feet over the edge of the ship.
However, you don't always have to be on the go during your time on NCL Breakaway. All the family will love a leisurely turn on the mini golf course, while indoors there's always the opportunity to indulge in some retail therapy at the onboard shops and boutiques.
While a cruise holiday is all about making memories together, kids can also make the most of their time onboard Norwegian Breakaway thanks to Splash Academy. Designed for 3-12 year olds, this dedicated space is spread over two storeys and gives younger guests the chance to play games, have fun and make friends with others their age.
Meanwhile, teens haven't been left out. A relaxed hangout made for 13-17 year olds, Entourage is on hand with TVs, films, games and much more!
As with all Norwegian Cruise Lines’ new ships, Norwegian Breakaway boasts a superb spa and fitness area. The Mandara Spa showcases a wide range of excellent treatments, from massages and facials to acupuncture and even botox. There is also a well-equipped fitness centre and a sports complex onboard, which is great for those who want to maintain a health and fitness regime during their cruise holiday.

We sailed from New York to the Bahamas and back during the Christmas period. Firstly the check in went wrong as my son had been booked with drinks package but he is only 17.. this causes havoc!! And took an hour to sort out whilst we stood there. We went straight for lunch when first boarding to the garden cafe which was busy noisy and then to our staterooms. We had an amazing guy looking after our rooms.. so friendly and accommodating called Benedict. On booking we had been told we had free wifi which we then found out was limited which caused no end of problems between my children!! Sad I know but my husband needed wifi for work too. The Internet cafe didn't work out either. In the free dining restaurants the menus were all the same which was most disappointing as we are vegetarians and they only had one choice per night. We were well looked after though but served meat on the last night by accident. Christmas Day was really disappointing too there wasn't a roast potato in sight apart from garlic diced ones.
The ship was lovely lots going for it. Cabin nice also very clean ship. Bars and restaurants done out very nice and cosy. Downside to these type of ships they are getting to big and having to cue up for everything. Never cruised with NCL before, all they kept pushing is to gamble and spend more money on different things. Having spent a lot of money on getting all the extras like balcony, paying for granites upfront also drinks package which does not include water which I find hard except. Also having to pay extra in the other restaurants which were empty if they just included it with the price I think there would have not been so many cues all the time to eat.
The Breakaway is a pretty new vessel so in very good condition. Staff were very helpful and the standard of food was very good. Personally it's too big. We were a little disappointed that so many of the restaurants were extras, as was soft drinks; something we weren't expecting. We were led to believe only alcoholic drinks would be extra. Entertainment was very good, but well worth the money. There was also a $12 dollar per day per person for gratuity, we personally were not happy with this, it assumes good service! This should be on service received, not a default. Every drink or service also carried an automatic gratuity, again assuming good service. Generally a lot of the entertainment was 'holiday campish', not to our personal taste, but that's just us.
