My family and I sailed on the breakaway this past week. Two teenage girls, my husband and I have been on 3 previous cruises.
Pros - Large ship,
Lots of things going on,
Specialty ($) restaurants are great
Shows are good
Photography staff did a great job
Excursion staff was accommodating
Kids like teen club...staff did a good job of entertaining the kids
Great parties on New Years Eve.
Fireworks on New Years Eve.
Disembarking was very smooth.
Cons - Only one power outlet with 2 plugs in the whole room...including bathroom
3 included restaurants have the same exact menu
Very little variation at the buffet from day to day
Tendering at Great Stirrup Cay was very hectic and not well organized
Most things are extra $.
Must make reservations days in advance to see shows or eat at specialty restaurants
Excursions sold out quickly (you should book online before embarking)
On board communication app ($7.95) only works approx 50% of the time.
Communication app should have vacation planner calendar (as on the TV)
Many staff members do not speak or understand English
In room TV has a vacation planner calendar which only showed some reservations.
Very confusing to keep track of all the various reservations.
Wifi is expensive
Overall it was a decent cruise, but I've had better overall experiences on prior cruises. Food that was prepared at the buffet or in the included restaurants was better than average but service was poor.
