Great cabin Steward. Comfortable rooms, not too small.

The accessible cabin was excellent. A member of the housekeeping staff built a special toilet seat for my wife to insure her safety. The cabin steward provided friendly and excellent service. However, unlike on other ships where you hear no noise from the nightclub so long as you are at least one deck above or below it, this did not apply to the Breakaway. Although we were on deck 13, 3 decks below the nightclub, we could get no sleep from 10:30 P.M. until 2:00 A.M. because the loud sound made the walls vibrate. This is not good construction.

The cabin was so nice, I was really shocked at how big the room was, and the bathroom was so nice and big too! The shower was quite large, and the double sink was great. We loved the huge balcony. It was big enough for two chairs, two lounge chairs, and a big table. It was great.

I was nervous that stepping into it, I would be in claustrophobia hell! But surprisingly and appreciatively I was not. The rooms were always clean and we enjoyed our towel friend every night! The only downside to the room would be the bed. It was two twin beds pushed together which just caused the bed to slide apart when we together in the middle. SO it would be two of us on one side of the side or us separate. That's a bummer. We found a way to make it work however. The balcony was a great addition and definitely made the place feel much bigger. I have to thank my boyfriend for that surprise :) During the day it could get really loud out there on the balcony which is annoying. So we mainly enjoyed it during the evenings when people were out having dinner. I love the sound of the ocean and having the opportunity to hear it was calming and when I didn't closing the balcony really shut all noises including the loud people out. Overall it was a very good first cruise!

Loved our cabin. We had lots of room and our cabin steward always had it cleaned and ready to go for us. Allan is the best!

Our steward Renato kept our cabin immaculately clean and neat as a pin. Our rear-facing balcony was larger than the side balconies (Large enough for a chaise lounge, 3 chairs and a small table) and always a great view when cruising. The cabin itself was more than large enough for the two of us with plenty of storage, nice bathroom, flat screen TV. The bed was quite comfortable, even with my back problems

Loved our cabin. The balcony was huge with 2 sun chairs, 2 regular chairs and a table. We had plenty of room for 3 people. The air conditioner stopped working and the toilet wouldn't flush one day but both issues were resolved quickly thanks to Allan our cabin steward.

Awesome trip!! Famcruzer
Plenty of storage, nice larger balcony and very attentive cabin steward. Our first aft balcony and I felt more movement in that room than I had on a previous mid ship mini-suite on the Gem. Very clean and bathroom size was not a problem.

Plenty of shelf and closet area for two. You must leave your key card in the slot inside in order to keep electricity on; however climate control remains constant even when key card is not engaged.

We Had a Great Time Mairzy Doats
Our cabin - 9918 - was fantastic! It was a bit tight for the 3 of us but we made it work. The balcony was the best part. I had chosen an aft balcony on 9, starboard. We had 2 loungers, 3 chairs and 2 tables and plenty of room to move them and ourselves around. Looking up to the other decks, we could see from the angle that ours was larger than the others above us. As it turned out, looking out over the balcony, we could see the fireworks just fine. There was a lot of storage but some was tricky to find. The bathroom was a good size, as was the shower. There were more shelves in the bathroom than usual and I liked being able to leave my cosmetics and stuff in there. I had read that there was no conditioner in the showers so I brought my own. I also followed advice from Cruise Critic and brought magnet hooks for the walls and those were great for hanging hats, card lanyards and so on. Giant clips, meant for holding towels to chairs were repurposed for clipping our last day paperwork under the TV. About the TV - we never watched it so we can't really comment on the programming. We did watch the info from the deck once or twice to find out about the sea conditions. Our bed was great, very comfortable king sized with 2 pillows each. The steward, Bradley, turned the couch into a nice bed for our son. The end tables on each side of our bed were pretty narrow but we made that work. The lights beside the bed were a little high up, so I'd have to get up to turn mine off. Luckily, I read a Kindle before bed so I never really needed to use the bedside light.

Pretty good luannstrell
Room and balcony space were fine but noise from deck parties was unacceptable.

Cabin, bathroom and shower, larger than we thought it would be. Only drawback was no drawers to put our cloths other than under the window seat. Our cabin was right above the deck where the crew relaxes..the door they used was constantly being opened and it always slammed shut...usually between the hours of 1am and 4am...We did complain and it was cared for. They did offer us dinner at one of the "pay" restaurants. Nice gesture!

Nice sized balcony, but noisy. Felt a lot of vibration leaving/entering port. Bed is next to the balcony; nice to wake-up to the ocean (when it wasn't raining)

By far the best cabin I've ever had, and the best cabin steward! If you'd like to see a video of the cabin, here's where it is posted! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGqnHIaG3YQ&list=PL_CqfGqgvFwOzkjt_m1_F9nNRGE0hL1HQ

Room was great; at first I couldn't imagine how we would stow away all our stuff, but it turned out not to be an issue at all.

Great cabin and great location, even though it's all the way aft. Easy access to the Garden Cafe and pool deck. We love the extra length of the aft facing cabins and had them bring in 2 lounge chairs. A bit smaller than Carnival's newer ships, but very adequate.

Room seemed small so did shower. It did seem to lack clothes storage options. The hangers seemed to clatter. Water pressure was a tad low but the temperature was great. We did on one night get too much noise from up above.

A huge balcony in a quiet part of the ship (due to there being only 6 cabins on our hallway). Lots of storage space in both the cabin and the bathroom. Loved being in an aft cabin!
