  1. The salad bar and burgers were great on the Breakaway and they were included in the price of sailing. I don’t want to go on a cruise ship and see chain restaurants. What’s next they going to replace the Italian with an Olive Garden. NCL keeps adding places and services that are an extra cost. Soon we will have to pay for everything and the only thing that will be included is your room.

  2. If you’re gonna consider that a “specialty restaurant”, don’t bother!

    You did this to us on the Escape, after announcing it was included, and then changed it.


    You’re lucky we’re still sailing on the Breakaway 9/4-9/11/16.

  3. Great news. We loved Margaritaville on NCL Escape. The place was always busy, so only a matter of time to the decide to roll it out to other ships. Now, we have to give either Getaway or Breakaway a try in the near future.

  4. Are you kidding me? We were on the escape this July and Margaritaville was empty most of the time. It had no activity and none of the fun I associate with a true Margaritaville. I collect hats from every margaritaville I go to and I would not even consider collecting anything from this venue!

    • I also cruised in July. Margaritaville was always empty it was a great place to get away from the crowd the prices were not bad and we had on-board food credits so it just cost us a tip and we always tip so no big deal. I wish they were open for dinner. And I hope they add it to some of there smaller older ships.
