Cabin
Our balcony cabin was smaller than similar cabins on other cruise lines. The balcony itself was tiny, suitable for standing only. The room layout was quite strange. It contained a double bed, narrow desk built into the wall, and a sofa. The sofa however was obviously an afterthought as it completely blocked access to the closet. The only way to hang anything in the closet was to kneel on the sofa. The closet itself was quite narrow. So narrow, in fact, that when the ship rocked, the hangers banged alternately into the door and the back of the closet. We had to rig a towel to silence them. The height of the closet bar was so low pants hung by the cuff crumpled into the floor rather than hanging straight. There were only two electrical outlets in the room, both on the desk. Thus, one could not leave electronic devices such as e-readers charging by the bed at night. Nor could one leave a device charging when the room was unoccupied. The lights and outlets are live only so long as your key card is in a slot by the door. When you leave with your key card, the outlets go dead.

The bathroom did have a bright spot. The shower stall is glass, including the door. This provides a much more effective water containment system than the flimsy shower curtains we have experienced on other ships.

Plenty of space and storage in the cabin. We had 4 people. It was tight but workable.

Great little balcony room in a fantastic location. Get off the aft stairs, turn left, and it's just around the corner. The location made it super simple to get places, and as someone who has zero sense of direction, I couldn't lose my cabin! Balconies are smaller on Breakaway than on most other NCL ships, but we didn't find the size diminished our use of it. This cabin is on one of the bump outs, it is NOT a corner one with a larger balcony, but because of its position on a bump, has a view that can only see a handful of cabins in either direction, not everything. There's not a lot blocking the view here, which is fantastic. You can see the lifeboats below, but it didn't bother us.  Read entire member review.

Great room for two people. Quiet. Balcony is on the small side (only about 3 feet deep) though, and not private. Guests walking on deck 7 can look up and see you, as can guests in balconies below you on decks 8 and 9, since those balconies extend out further than this cabin. Plenty of shelf space in the room. Bed is near the balcony, sofa if near the closet, making room seem larger and providing easy access to the closet. Room safe is small, will not hold an SLR camera. Bathroom is large enough to move around easily but shower is rather small; does not accommodate 2 people easily.
