So I’ve been absolutely ecstatic since the return of my client’s recent stay on the Norwegian Breakaway to share her experience here. This client is just such a beautiful person and her travel experience was so unique and relaxing, that sharing it was a MUST. While I sat down last evening to prep my notes for the blog, Norwegian announced that they would be breaking the mold with an ALL-INCLUSIVE CRUISE PACKAGE for 2015 sailings! This package is only available on bookings made between August 4-29, 2014, so don’t wait to contact me to book this (DinaSilvestriTravel@gmail.com)!:
THE All-INCLUSIVE Cruise is here!!
So why Norwegian cruise lines? Well first and foremost, they have really spectacular new ships. The Breakaway, which sails out of NYC year round, and the Getaway which is their newest ship sailing out of Miami, are outstanding options. So why else do I love this cruise line? Well there is a list of reasons specific to each client but this time around it’s because 1) they go ABOVE and BEYOND, especially for clients who have dietary restrictions 2) they have fantastic rates, even for last minute travel and 3) because they offer single supplement rooms that are STUNNING! Cruising with a group or opting to go by yourself no longer means paying more than you should have to! The new Norwegian ships have a solution for this and I will be sharing here my clients amazing experience with the Studio Rooms and VIP areas for these rooms on the New Norwegian Breakaway.
My clients have been booking a lot of last-minute summer travel and I’m happy that there have been so many fantastic deals on five star resorts and top cruise lines to offer them. This client was looking for a last-minute getaway that would be easy for her to travel to/from on her own for relaxation and rejuvenation. We explored a few all-inclusive options but during the week she was looking to travel, Norwegian was offering a fantastic sale on their Studio rooms that couldn’t be beat! This was her ticket to paradise!
“Parking at pier is $40 a day. People offered to drop me off but I felt badly so I took your expert advice and took the bus. It was great! Two dollars a day to park at the bus terminal!… I met other people on the bus going to the cruise port. It was less than a mile so we all walked together. On the way home buses run pretty regularly and Sunday was not crowded in the Port Authority. Most importantly, my car was fine when I got back. Only prob – after not driving for a week – I really did not want to drive!”
Although Norwegian Breakaway is a larger ship, I was curious to know my clients feedback, as a single, adult traveling without kids, regarding crowds and the ship in general, especially where kids are concerned. Her feedback is priceless and insightful!
“The boat was meticulously clean and beautiful. The attention to detail was amazing. We were docked in Bermuda next to a competitor ship and everyone said our boat was so much nicer! I felt bad for the kids on the other ships having to see out boat with water slides! I didn’t find the amount of kids (on the Breakaway) to be too much. At night our boat lit up! You couldn’t hear the deck party music from my room though or on other parts of ship. The deck parties were a blast! That crew did a great job with organizing and getting everyone involved. Fireworks at sea were magical!!
The theater was gorgeous. I could see no matter where I sat and seats were comfortable. Rock of Ages was well done! I saw the Broadway show and found acting and staging to be excellent. Only difference was no live band under the stage.
The service friendliness and hospitality of staff was indescribable. My room Stewart could not have been more kind. The waiters assistants and maître d always made sure I was ok and I had everything I needed and my food was allergy free and safe. (more about her food allergies later on!)
This client, as mentioned, took advantage of the new single supplement Studio room offerings on the Breakaway. These rooms are fantastic because now people who travel alone or who are in a group but don’t want to share a room, can do so at a single priced option. My client got an AMAZING last minute rate through me and was so surprised by the room!
Until next time,
