Not any more. Got an e-mail saying it is no longer allowed to bring in water/soda even if sealed. Won't be allowed from ports either.

Short answer is yes. We sailed to Bermuda 6/19/16 and the porters were very happy to slap baggage tags on the two cases and three single gallon jugs of water we brought. They were delivered to our stateroom with the rest of our luggage.

I believe that NY is one of the ports where they don't allow you to check in water and soda. It is a restriction imposed by the port authoritative and not NCL. However, you can carry them as your carry-on luggage.

Yes, you may bring cases of water or soda on board with you. They must be full, factory sealed cases. In most ports you may check them with your luggage and they will be delivered to your room. In other ports you must carry them on board yourself. I have not yet sailed out of New York, so I am not sure if you will need to carry them, but according to NCL policy they will not be confiscated.

Within the Haven courtyard, Deck 16 forward. If you see a photo, it may look like three pools. Two of them are only a few inches deep, meant for relaxing in a lounge chair. The third is the only swimming pool, and it's on the small side. There are also two hot tubs in the courtyard.

Yes you can purchase beer, wine and other alcohols as needed. The caps & corks package or the ultimate drinks package is only good if you plan to drink at least 7-8 drinks per day. For an average drinker, the packages are a waste of money.

Yes, you can. If you are a moderate drinker, in fact, it probably would be less expensive that way rather than to purchase a drink package. About the only shortcoming is the extra paperwork. You will get a receipt for each purchase, and each will appear separately on your final bill.

You can check in cases of sodas or water with your luggage. You can also put them in your carry on bag. There is no restriction on how many cases you can get but I believe NY is one of the ports where due to port restrictions they don't allow you check the cases but you are allowed to carry them as a carry on.

The TV channels available are quite limited. However, there is a large screen in the atrium that they use for presentations. They use the same screen to play movies and NFL football games. The same channel will also be available in your stateroom. I'm sure they will have special events for the Super Bowl. Check the onboard newsletter for details.

On a past cruise the Superbowl was broadcast on the ship in one of the main lounges which was decorated and serving stadium style snacks as well. My guess is that it will be broadcast on the Breakaway in a similar manner but can't guarantee it. You'll have to ask once on board for specifics.

Yes, you can use cash to setup your initial account. However, your account will be frozen if you go over the limit until you add more funds. You can use a credit/debit card to setup your account at the port and you can use cash to settle the account on the last night of your cruise to avoid the charges showing up on your credit/debit card.
Also remember that the charges are per person, so you will have to multiply it by the number of guests travelling with you.

I'm booked in a MX category mini suite - the deck plans do not show these rooms - where are they and when can I expect a room number assignment

asked 7 months ago
By

Answers
answer 1
MX is the code for a guaranteed mini-suite, meaning that you are assured that NCL will provide you with a stateroom of equal or better quality than the minimum for that class of stateroom. Depending upon what rooms other passengers have reserved and what is left over, you are guaranteed to get at least a mini-suite. You could get lucky and be assigned a better stateroom. The only time my wife and I have sailed with a guaranteed room, we did not receive our cabin assignment until we arrived in Barcelona on the day before embarkation, and were pleasantly surprised to find that it was for a balcony room when we had paid for an inside cabin.

MX just means you guarantee a category of stateroom, but you do not get to specifically pick which room. They will assign you a room. It will be at least a room in the category you chose, which in your case is a mini suite. It can be on any deck, but it will be at minimum, a mini suite. You could possibly end up in a higher category room, but you will at the very least, be in a mini suite.

You have a GTY reservation which guarantee accommodation. The rate you got the room is a discount rate which means that the room will be assigned any time after the final payment is done. In some cases, the cabin may be assigned at the time of check-in. Log into your NCL account and check often for updates.

Here is the link for the floor plans on the ship.You can find the generic floor plan and pics for a mini-suite.

I only found them on deck 8 forward via the "Deck Plans" link even though the description says decks 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14. Stateroom is assigned anytime between final payment and the day of boarding so you'll have to check your reservation via "My NCL" frequently to know what stateroom you've been assigned.

When we were on the Breakaway this past February, they offered three wines that may interest you. There was a Reisling from Rosemount Estate in Australia, a Spatelese from S.A. Prume in Germany, and a Gewurztraminer from Hogue Cellars Winery in the State of Washington. The selections change from time to time based on availability, so the offerings on your cruise may vary, but there probably will be some Reisling or similar wine available when you sail.
