  1. They hold back quite a few reservations to be booked on the ship. Go to the theater booking office the first day on the ship and you should have no problem.
  2. We had to ask him for the bags. There were none in our room.
  3. Yes, it is. A lady at our table last week was a vegetarian, and they served her a special meal.
  4. Got the Lobster Roll on Wednesday, 12/5 because of this recommendation. It tasted good, but $11.75 for a sandwich that was 4" long with about 3-4 little chunks of lobster was VERY disappointing! Definitely not worth the price. Sorry.
  5. I had a BX room on the Breakaway for the Nov. 25 sailing that was assigned immediately when booked in January. The price dropped $300 before final payment. This was refunded with no problem. After final payment, the price kept dropping. I did politely ask if there was anything that they could do since the price was almost half of what we had originally paid. We were offered an upgrade to a mini-suit (MX), but we didn't want to take a chance on losing our huge balcony, so they gave us $75 OBC. So yes, they do sometimes work with you.
  6. We just got off of the Breakaway on Thursday. On day 8 of 11, we asked our steward when the laundry special would be announced, and he said that we can use it anytime, just fill the bag and write PROMO on the the laundry slip. We filled 2 bags, got them back the next day, and were charged $19.95 each. They never did advertise the special during our cruise.

  8. Kim, I have read all of your reviews and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I haven't seen anything from you in quite a while. Just wondered if you were taking a break from CC or you just haven't cruised in a while. I am looking forward to reading about your newest adventures. Janice
  9. I don't know about everyone else, but I am enjoying this thread so much that I keep refreshing every few minutes hoping to see new posts from you! LOL I have been dieting since February and have lost 80 pounds, so this cruise will be my reward for a long journey completed. We are even doing a foodie tour in Cozumel in addition to all the good food I am looking forward to eating on the ship.
  10. Thanks for a wonderful review! We leave on the Breakaway on Nov. 25, and I read so many negative reviews on CC about the food on NCL that I was getting concerned, but it looks great. Your pictures are beautiful! Thank you for all of the time and effort you have put into this. Looking forward to seeing your wife's choices!
  11. I booked our November 25 cruise on the Breakaway in January. My guarantee balcony rate has gone down 4 times, saving us $700! I purposely left a small balance to pay on our account hoping for one more price drop before our July 18 final payment date. And, we got to pick our room when we booked even though it was a guaranty rate. We got one with the huge balcony, over 100 sq. ft., on deck 8. Very excited! Also, in addition to the price drops, a couple of weeks ago, they were running a special where you got all 5 on board perks, plus prepaid tips, plus double on-board credit, and an additional restaurant meal paid for! Unfortunately, we didn't get any of these since we are in the guaranty category, but our price was so low and our balcony so great, we didn't want to switch categories to get the perks.
  12. Are you on the ship now? What other changes did they make to the Breakaway during dry dock? Nobody has reported a thing!
