Great Stirrup Cay and Cabana

By: Sari Palmeri When we were on the Norwegian Breakaway we were fortunate to go to their private island, Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. We were also fortunate to get a cabana and share it with friends. Great Stirrup Cay is a tender island. This means that the ship docks in the water and you take boats to get to their private island. Once we got to the island we could either take a tram or walk to the cabana. We chose to take the tram and our...

Breakaway Haven Suite

Breakaway Haven Suite

By: Sari Palmeri Our Norwegian Cruise was AMAZING! We stayed in a Haven Suite and there was a special area in the cruise terminal specifically for Haven guests. It had its own check-in desks and some light snacks, coffee, hot chocolate, water and juice to enjoy while we waited for embarkation. When the time came we were able to board first and they took us directly to meet the concierge and our room was ready. While in the Haven area they had...

A Family of Five Takes to the Seas on the Norwegian Breakaway

Dining on the Norwegian Breakaway

Dining on the Norwegian Breakaway

By: Sari Palmeri Our first night on the Norwegian Breakaway we ate at the Haven Restaurant. We only ate there that night because we wanted to explore and try other foods. The menu was a little limited, but everything was delicious. The wait staff was very friendly and welcoming. You can only dine in this specific restaurant if you are staying in a Haven Suite. We love buffets and all the options and our kids loved the “freedom” of getting...

My Norwegian Sky Weekend

By Shellie Wylie I loved it! My husband and I flew into Miami the night before our three night cruise on the Norwegian Sky. This would be our first NCL experience. As an avid Disney Cruise Line fan, I was a little worried that we would be disappointed in the service, food, and over all experience. I really had nothing to worry about! The Sky is an older ship but she is kept up well. We had a very nice balcony stateroom. It wasn’t quite as...
