We took the cruise as a relaxing vacation and another way to visit Bermuda. We loved the idea of using the ship as a resort and also spending days at sea. However, it would have been better to have an extra day in Bermuda. We loved ... Read more

This is my third cruise on the Breakaway (and third to Bermuda). This is a great itinerary and Bermuda is always a great place to visit. Having a two night, three day stay on the island makes for a nice, relaxing time compared to the ... Read more

We booked this cruise at the last minute. We love the specialty restaurants, especially Ocean Blue, Cagney's & Le Bistro. The main dining rooms do not compare in the quality of food. The service was always exceptional. Bermuda is ... Read more

First and last cruise! This ship is so outdated I felt like I was in a really bad 80's wedding the whole week. The entertainment is very painful to watch unless you enjoy 70 songs being sung very badly. The décor is tacky and vases ... Read more
