Nice, but Bigger isn't Better
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Shows are limited. Theater is small so u need to book reservations. Same shows as well. Burn the floor well done...Rock of Ages...lacked energy and a plot. ..Comedian Michael Finney was very good. second City was fine. Captain was very impersonal. Posed for pics one day for a total of 15minutes...barely spoke at Latitudes gathering and lacked enthusiasm when he did. We are used to crews also initiating "hello", not the case here. When one did ask about things which were you experienced on past cruises and enjoyed, standard answer "This is the Breakaway"..... Which I determined, forget the niceties, we do things our own way, when we want to and forget the cruise experience you used to enjoy. Water slides are fun and obstacles course was a blast. Liked the adult only Spice H2O.
Next cruises...smaller ship with more better food and service ratings. Read the reviews and trust the poor to middle. They are more accurate. Less
Cabin review: 8114
Room is tight. You have to walk sideways to squeeze between wall and bed. Loved the extra balcony except when the water dripped down from theship's bridge overhead. starborad is great to view the fireworks..although, it was lame. No big finish.
Better than expected
We a had a great time
Second time was not as good as...
