My boyfriend and I always pick a mid-ship cabin just because we get a little dizzy/nauseous in the aft or forward. We usually tend to get a balcony but this time we went with a mini-suite because they had a good deal. With out room we got a free bottle of wine, chocolate covered strawberries, free dinner for two at La Cucina's and as well at Cagney's. I'm not sure how much difference there is between the balcony and mini-suite cabins, but what I do know is that the bathroom in the mini-suite seemed well worth it! Definitely a good space for two people and the showers on the Breakaway in general were amazing (they have jets)! The mini-suite, I believe, has a double sink as well as a more spacious bathroom in general (definitely easier to do your bathroom business!) than the balcony cabin. I had no complaints for the room or the floor we were on. I think the most annoying thing in the room was the TV because you’d have to stand in a certain angle with the remote to turn it on and switch through the channels. The balcony was still a do-able size for us since we weren't out there 24/7 anyway. If you think you'd be on your balcony most of the time, you might want to consider the extended balcony. My boyfriend's parents came with us on the trip and they had the forward mini-suite with an extended balcony and it was huge! Definitely enough room for a round table with 2 chairs as well as another 2 sunbathing chairs.

Tiny safe. Above the waterfront walk restaurant deck and Fat Cats so at night smokers and drinkers hang out below. No hair conditioner or body lotion. Tight space between bed and closet. Couch next to doors. Bigger shower with upgraded shower head and smaller water jets.  Read entire member review.

Clean, small with a tiny balcony. This cabin is over the Ocean Front deck. You will hear noise from the Ocean Front deck (people, chairs, music) & smell smoke as well. Not good if you turn in around 9 - 10. Even if you have your balcony door closed you can hear the noise. Robes that were to come with cabin were not there, had to request them. In a nut shell, if you are a smoker & stay out late this cabin would be fine for you. It had twin beds that when put together make a king size bed. It also had a couch that turned into a single bed.

We were two in a cabin that can sleep three. We had the twin beds kept together to give us a few more inches of walking space. I worried that this arrangement would cause my tossing to wake my daughter. However, this was not the case, as the separate mattresses prevent such disturbance. Storage was plentiful, although some of the cabinet space is odd. I suggest you remove the extra pillows and linen from the sofa drawers, put them up high in the closet (space that is too high for most of to utilize comfortably), and use the drawers for clothing. My daughter used the closet and I used the drawers. This allowed us each to essentially have half of the room and to stay out of each others space.

The bathroom is roomy by most standards. The shower is impressive in size and features. I wasn't traveling with young children, but could see how a parent could easily assist a young toddler in showering in this. Lower spray jets could be used instead of the rainfall showerhead. However, I never did figure out how to use those jets properly, and they seemed to be rather low for adult use.

The balcony is small, just enough room for two to sit out. I suppose that one doesn't need more room than that, but I wished for a little more space. The view is superb. My daughter spotted some dolphins from the bed one morning and then sat out on the balcony watching them at length. This was only possible because the railing is a clear glass.

Great. Modern. Large bathroom and large shower with 8 or more shower sprays. Mini suite. No tub. Large comfortable bed. Bigger than a queen. Beautiful views and great location on ship.

This cabin has a small balcony and a hard to access closet with the bed next to it. The shower is a good size and a dual sink but not worth the extra expense from a balcony cabin which is the only difference between the two. There are two outlets for plugging in electronics but none in the bathroom. It has a flat screen TV but limited channel selections. It was quiet and we didn't hear anything from people around us or from deck 8 below us.

Our cabin was of average size but on the Breakaway I believe it is the same size as a balcony stateroom.
The balcony was very small and not what we were use to. The bathroom was a good size but the rain shower head was just a simple shower head. The cabin was clean and good for what it was needed for but not a great place to relax and unwind. If I were to chose again I would have to look at the large balcony rooms as I really enjoy the balconies during my cruise.

Best Cruise Yet by jenmcbee

Cabin 10806. Small Balcony, view below was blocked by lifeboats so would choose a different cabin next time. The rooms are smaller than on other ships BUT the bathroom is larger - we had a double sink - and the shower was actually large enough to turn around in!

Wonderful week! by dolphinlover12

Four people and we had plenty of space to unpack all our clothing and store in the various drawers and closet.
Plenty of room under the bed for the suitcases.
great location mid ship. a walk to the elevators but hardly felt the sea movements.
Small balcony, afternoon sun on the way to Bermuda, morning sun on the return trip.
loved the bed, slept like a rock and I'm usually very picky.
very quiet
shower was my fav.

Sweet and Sour by Fortressgirl

Our cabin was ready for us when we boarded (13198), located on deck 13 mid-ship. We had a mini-suite to accommodate three, since we were traveling with our adult son. Calling the cabin a mini-suite is a bit of a stretch, but it was large enough for three adults without too much trouble. The bathroom is a nice change of pace from normal cruise bathrooms. It has a standard size shower with glass doors and multiple jets for a wonderful shower experience. There was a double sink and plenty of storage. The balcony was very small, about 2 ½ ft by 10 and could accommodate 2 people, but NOT comfortably. The closet was more than adequate for all of us, especially since there is storage in the desk area, under the sofa (two drawers) and even a storage cube that serves as an extra seat or table. The location was quiet and only two decks from the Pool/buffet deck. The Room Steward, Garry was excellent!

One of the finest prefabricated rooms I have ever slept in. A little noisy from the groovy times on deck 15 above you, but no worries.

The room was nice but I don't know how they can call it a mini suite. The only thing that was larger was the bathroom which had an amazing shower with multiple heads. Balcony was tiny
