  1. You are assigned a random phone number. We texted each other and then set up our address books. You can do individual and group texts. You can also call.
  2. We were on the Breakaway last week and it worked pretty well. The deadest spot we had was in our Aft cabin near the balcony. Four of us texted and called at various times of the day.
  3. We just got off the Breakaway this morning and the ship was beautiful and clean! Saw people cleaning all over the ship and an abundance of supervisors checking on progress. Great cruise!
  4. Thanks for taking us along on your journey! We board when you get off and it's great having a LIVE preview!
  5. Thanks for such an amazing review! This Grammy felt like she was on the ship with you and your family! We leave on the Breakaway May 5th and your review made me even more excited! The time and effort you put into the scavenger hunt made it an experience your kids will never forget! Thanks for sharing!
  6. Two years ago on the Escape, we had a "ladies lunch" at Wine Lovers and left our husbands to their own devices. The show was hilarious! The actors (from other shows on board) were very talented with wonderful voices. We were at a front row table for two and loved it! The 🍷was good (don't go expecting top shelf!) and you learned about each glass as you drank. The hard part was remembering not to drink until they tell you to!
  7. Do they add the $15 corking fee to the Viva Vino package or just taxes and fees?
  8. My husband, RedRover96, surprised me for our anniversary and for my birthday on different NFL cruises. I was so excited when I walked into the room and found it decorated! It really made for a special cruise! I brought both the Happy Birthday banner and the Happy Anniversary banner and he'll home and have used them for other occasions. Plus, your room steward is the one climbing and hanging things on the wall and ceilings with a ladder - you don't have to worry about doing it! 😊
  9. I have one that I bought at Walmart for under $10 that I travel with. It is double sided (magnifying and regular) with a folding stand so you can set it up on a counter.
  10. We were able to book our excursions on our Breakaway trip in May through the Shore Excursions phone line without being charged. We have the $50 Shore Ex credit and the representative said it would be applied after our excursions were completed and we would pay the balance at the end of the cruise. I would call them back and hopefully talk to a rep that knows what is really going on!
  11. Sid, thanks for your fantastic trip report. We're sailing on the Breakaway in May and I really loved all your pictures around the ship! You have a unique perspective at times, but you make the journey come to life for us back on dry land! You have also inspired me to write a trip report when I return from our journey. I have retired from teaching middle school, but hopefully that doesn't make me one of those old folks you were talking about on your trip! 😀
  12. We LOVED the Waterfront on Escape when we sailed two years ago. We loved the outside Cellars Wine Bar with Jocelyn as our server each evening. NCL had a wine guy from Portugal who did a presentation in the Atrium and Jocelyn found his wine for me to drink at the bar. She also kept my husband's favorite bourbon in stock for us as well as making wonderful drinks for our friends. On Thursday, when my husband sat down at the bar, Jocelyn asked him, "Your usual?" A girl who was at the bar for the first time commented that it was cool to have a usual and the bartender to know you that well! We're on the Breakaway in May. Is there an outdoor bar on the Waterfront where we can get this kind of service? I also loved just relaxing in the chairs and couches on the Waterfront.
  13. We were on the Escape two years ago and enjoyed being able to plug our phones into USB outlets on the bedside table. I know the Breakaway has been in for refurb recently. Did they upgrade the outlets/add USB outlets during this time? If not, where are the outlets and how many are there? Thanks! GrammyLove
  14. Do they have the crepe station on the Breakaway? If so, where? Just booked this week and sail May 5th. Can't wait!
