Breakaway / Live (*) / Solo - Feb-07-17-2019...

Recommended Posts

Thanks again for not giving up on reviewing, considering all of the difficulties you had last time. I know we all appreciate this. When a review is well-written and keeps me entertained, I have no problem waiting for its conclusion. Life tends to get in the way sometimes. Best of luck to you and I hope you are able to cruise again in the near future.

Thank you Sid Aka James aka Wilson!

I have followed your carnival reviews and sailed the Vista last August and rebooked for this July when a friend just got off the Breakaway before you and recommenced I give NCL and the Breakaway a try.

i have a courtesy hold on a July sailing 

so I was researching and came across your review!

 

Love your reviews and how you honor your special lady’s memory. 

 

Vegetarian here so I blast past the food but oh so enjoy the drinks! As a medical professional I may need temporary custody of your liver though 😂

 

I am torn betweeb the Vista in a Havana cabin which I loved or acregukar balcony on the Breakaway... thoughts?

If I knew I could buy a vibe pass I’d choose to try the Breakaway since I’m sailing in late July or 1st week of August... but I know the higher status cruisers will grab them before I board...

 

Thoughts  in the differences in drink packages?

 

Also I was one of the dorks that followed your unscripted page after your last sailing 😂

 

thank you for taking us all along yet again!

also I’m going to try and post a fun bathroom pic in my next post ... to add to your collection!

Thank you and loved your review.  Can't wait for your next one!  This is the 1st I have read of yours, so I will read your previous reviews.  We are sailing carnival and princess (1st x) this year.  No NCL booked right now unfortunately.   Don't worry,  everything will come together for you.

Sorry, I don't do any gambling whatsoever. There were a few casino photos near the post about dinner at Shanghai's

Thank you so much for following. The easiest way to find them is to just Google: Escape/ Live/ Solo (there are two different ones) Vista/ Live/ Solo, Magic/ Live/ Solo, and Bliss/ Live/ Solo...

I wouldn't hesitate to sail either the Vista or Breakaway again. And, don't count yourself out on Vibe passes. 90% of the people there had no status whatsoever with NCL. They did, however get there early to score a group 1 boarding card.

Absolutely LOVED your review!!  We are going on Breakaway end of April.  Did they have any of those "theme" nights?  We are newbies but we have heard about some ships having them.

I would totally be willing to do that if there was enough interest...

 

You know I followed, and enjoyed, the last time you were posting more "from home" type stuff.  I'll still be there, if you pick it back up.  No matter how short, or long, it goes.  I may not post too often, but I am definitely hanging around!

Thanks Sid. I looked forward to reading your posts each day.  I've never had the time to do a post cruise report but now that I have retired, you have inspired me to share my journeys as well. Glad you had an awesome trip!!

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! 😀
