We had sailed on the Breakaway four years ago and were enroute to Bermuda. Unfortunately, there was a tropical storm or hurricane on it's way (don't remember which), so we were rerouted to FL/Bahamas. There was quite a bit of complaining around us, but my husband and I, and our friends, just shrugged our shoulders. What can you do? Throwing a tantrum wasn't going to change the situation. Writing a letter to NCL wasn't going to do anything. Weather is weather, and if you're sailing during hurricane season, it's a risk you take. We just figured we'd make the best of it, enjoy ourselves and simply felt, "at least we're not at work."

When the captain made the announcement, he did also mention that they were going to refund our port fees, etc... and extend a "good will gesture" of $75 onboard credit per passenger (could have been $50, or $100 - don't honestly remember).

Bingo ... easy tipoff, shadow of the sun against the ship ... old fashion sun-dial. Looked more of a northerly heading on course for NY, maybe still eastward. I see some white caps in the water, but considering it's the Atlantic, I call that quite calming (maybe 7' to 10' seas ... )

From stateroom TV's Channel 21 or 22, ususally give you basic navigational data like speed, headings and air temperature - we find the mid-size ships like the Gem, Dawn & Jewel yielding/sharing more precise info, including (used to ??) pool temperature & even barometric pressure. Newer ships like the Breakaway, not so much. Distance to next port (NYC) should come up - easy calculation based on ship's actual speed, for a very close approximation of ETA.


We're on a Bahamas sailing many, many years ago (on the Dawn out of NYC) when we had to sail toward Bermuda to avoid a hurricane, we skipped GSC & left Nassau early ... somewhat similar to this one, and, the sea days were actually quite nice.

Yep, it appears that during breakfast there was an accommodating adjustment (briefly). It is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL SUN AND HEAT AND NO REAL FEEL FOR THE WAVES. Escape just too big, and when underway, lot's of tech tools that smooth the ride.

We did miss Bermuda, but we also missed Florence. On top of that, we've have almost perfect weather after clearing NY.

We've actually HAD ENOUGH SUN in the limited time we do sit out. The pools and decks are FULL, lots of high atmosphere people having a blast. Fun to watch.

JUST MADE OUR FINAL PAYMENTS ON OUR B2B NCL BLISS CRUISES IN JANUARY.

Couple of cruise comments ~

Cagney's is still the same quality (IMO); other lines top Specialty Steakhouses have had major cost cutting declines (IMO).

Food Republic IS STILL A SECRET; 5 lunches or dinners so far. Haven't had the same thing twice. Haven't even had sushi yet. Unique.

Ship is clean, staff is friendly. Completely outpaces our RCCL Anthem cruise (a beautiful, cutting edge ship design) crew experience; shows that it takes a crew to make a ship.

Again, thoughts and hopes are for the landfall areas affected by Florence. When we get home, if you're really beat up, we'll all rally around to help you.

Decent, 'relatively calm night at seas; not perfect, but relatively calm considering our path and the related storm activities. Yep, some movement, but we're in the Atlantic with a TS/H that just moved through.

Taking in the usual, daily morning urn of coffee at O'Sheehan's will wife get ready for walk and then breakfast. Laughing at the LARGE GROUP of really young passengers having a huge and boisterous breakfast AFTER HAVING NOT GONE TO BED YET.

Oh, to be young.

Got a real surprise at Bayamo's last night; actually a couple.

THE MENU IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN THE DOWNLOAD FROM THE SITE A MONTH OR SO AGO.

First, the reservation system and front desk for dining SAID IT WAS FULLY BOOKED ALL NIGHT. We walked in at 5:45, during our hour there, not more than 5-6 other tables occupied. The bar is always FULL as they have a mojito reputation that appears quite good.

Second, to our surprise (expectations were real low), it was GREAT. The Alaskan King Crab Legs appetizer would have been my entire dinner. About 10 legs sliced in half, cool arrangement, lemon bag and butter. It was surprising really good and the volume was nuts. Cancelled 2nd course and good thing. The 2nd from the top seafood combination of Lobster Tail, Red Snapper Fish Fillet (4 by 8 inch cut 3 inch thick) and fully shelled grilled Prawns/Shrimp. I ate the white fish, 1/3 of the HUGE half lobster tail and none of the shrimp. It was great. Wife had 5 ounce (off menu) fillet; as good as Cagney's. NICE SURPRISE.

Hoping all is well on the US coast dealing with Florence; checking on it now all the time.

We've been very lucky, the sun is already up and still another hot, bright day ahead. The SEAS were bigger yesterday afternoon, but it appears Captain made an adjustment for dinner and show time. THE SHIP WAS REALLY NOT CHALLENGED BY THE SWELLS AT ALL.

A great place to sit, relax, have a drink and watch the weather is the District Brewhouse. Wicked comfortable leather couches, nice environment and great views. Good beer too, as that is what it is known for, but also carries a FULL BAR.

YEP. That's correct. LOL on me.

Never been there, but after your post remembered the signage. Very busy place 4 sure.

We've done Getaway and Escape(s); the prior food venue was something we had NO interest in so we missed it. Also, wife HATES THE SMOKE in that general area on all decks proximate to casino. On this cruise, more noticeable than late last year out of Miami.

The Sugarcane Mojito Bar is on the Waterfront on Getaway (inside/outside), right beside the Ice Bar. It's not near the restaurant (which is Ocean Blue on Getaway, I believe.)

Another great day on the seas. The air much less humid. Only now beginning to cloud up. Compared to our worries concerns last week, we've have absolutely gorgeous weather and seas once leaving NY. One more day to go at sea. Really can't ask for any better week given the circumstances at hand.

Here's that latest location, wind directions and wave heights. Not too bad at all. Looks like we'll make NY with ease.
