Breakaway was horrible!!! Do not go
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The food on the boat was disappointing as well. Our first night, we were handed a beeper and told we would have a 45 More minutes wait at the main dining room. We went to Ocean Blue the following night ($49 per person up charge) and were so disappointed. Portions were tiny, and we were told we could only have one appetizer or we would be charged more. My husband was told not to order the black sea bass entree because it was really small- we questioned the waitress as to why they would put something on the menu that was too small to be served. My risotto in Ocean Blue was fine, but was no better than the risotto I have the next night in the regular dining room. The lunch buffet at the Garden Cafe was boring and limited, and in general, there was not much food available on the boat throughout the day relative to other cruise ships we have been on. Our cabin steward (Nicole) never came to meet us the entire week we were there, and in general the cruise staff was argumentative instead of helpful and friendly. We have never experienced anything like this before.
One standout on this cruise was the entertainment- Rock of Ages was amazing!!!
Overall, this was a disappointing cruise for us. Do not go on the Breakaway. You can do much better- there are much nicer ships with better food and nicer cruise staff for the same price. This ship is certainly no bargain! Less
Room was okay. We had a spa mini suite with a balcony which was smaller than regular balcony rooms we've had on other cruise lines. Our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was a nice size and the shower was great
