Zencruising On The Breakaway 4-28-19!!!

Recommended Posts

We Ubered from the hotel to the port for $17.72 plus tip. I snapped a few pics along the way. We passed So Cal Taco on the way. The anticipation is always highest when you are waiting for a glimpse of the ship. We weren't disappointed. There were at least 5 ships in port that day. We dropped our bags off with the porters gave them a nice tip and we were off to check in.

We arrived at the port at around 10:30 and went right through security then filled out health questionnaire. There was no line to check in. We had our ship cards in hand within a few minutes and we were on our way upstairs. We were in boarding group 5.

We waited about 15 minutes and then they began calling boarding groups.Soon they called our group and we we off. From the curb at the port to boarding the ship took maybe 30 minutes. Next stop will be at O'Sheehan's for our first drink on the ship

While a large majority of people head directly to the buffet we usually hit O'Sheehan's first.This trip would be no different. Mrs Zen would start with a White Russian while I would start with my first of many Painkillers.

Thanks so much for the review Mr. and Mrs. Zen.  This is EXACTLY what I needed before my sailing on June 30th!  Cheers!

The Painkiller and White Russian went down real easy! Time for something else. Michelob Ultra it is for both of us and we're off to explore the ship and get outdoors.

I took a  pic of the new terminal Norwegian is having built. It looks like it will be real nice when it is finished. Also some random pics of Miami. A great view from the upper decks.

May I ask what excursion you did in Roatan, or why it is your favorite? 

 

We did zip the South Shore Zipline Adventure which we booked through the ship. It was a lot of fun with great views. Our favorite excursion on the trip was Maya Chan in Costa Maya. It the most relaxing day. We will be going back to Maya Chan next April when we sail on The Getaway out of New Orleans.

With no drinks in our hand we decided to we needed to go check our Spice H20 and get a drink or two. It was nice and quiet there with  not too many people. I got another Painkiller and Mrs Zen got a Miami Vice. We hung out for a while and soaked up the sunshine and laid back atmosphere. Soon it was time for another round. Another Painkiller and Miami Vice please!

We bid on an upgrade from to a Thermal Spa balcony which we got. We were upgraded from a mid ship balcony.Our bid was considered poor so we were surprise when we got it. Our rooms wouldn't be ready until 2pm so we decided to tour the spa.

We brought them with us. Mine lasted a day and half. I ended up throwing mine away on accident.

love the door decorations!

 

It is easier to find your cabin when you have the door decorated.

Great review so far. We are also staying at the Hampton Inn in a few days. Glad to hear you liked it.

Based on the Zen and Sid recommendation I have ordered Flyby. The older I get the harder it is to keep up with the drink package!

Breakaway on Sunday!! 🍸🌴
