Evolution rather than Revolution Norwegian Breakaway

After a good walk around Norwegian Breakaway I am glad to say that this ship is Evolution rather than Revolution. I have always enjoyed Norwegian Epic and when you walk through the main areas Breakaway has the same feel especially when in the main dining areas, Cagney’s Steakhouse and Moderna Churrascaria are virtually identical and inside the ship is very familiar. When I say Evolution I really mean that Norwegian Cruise Lines have taken the best of Epic and tweaked and added, the Waterfront area allows guests to dine outside in a selection of speciality restaurants including the new Ocean Blue Seafood restaurant by Iron Chef celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian. The Waterfront allows guests to dine outside overlooking the sea (this I imagine is weather dependent but perfect for a balmy Bermudan or Bahamian night). The water slides and rope park look amazing for younger guests as well as a crazy golf course, bungee trampoline and a rock climbing wall for the more energetic. As Norwegian Breakaway’s home port is New York a lot of the deck space is enclosed and sun beds may be difficult to get at times. If my youngest son Mark was onboard he would make me take him to the Dolce Gelato daily for his fix of fine Italian Ice Cream. A lot of thought has gone into the main bar areas such as O’Sheehan’s where the restaurant is separate to the bar with less noise, the bar area is a fun pub lovers dream with darts, pool, air hockey and of course Ten Pin Bowling (a Norwegian Cruise Lines signature). The dining choices are fabulous and I can’t wait to have some fresh Sushi tomorrow. A lot of thought has gone into the space used but the proof is in the pudding and I’m looking forward to tonight to see the restaurants and entertainment in action. I have put a few pictures of interesting areas below, more to follow
