Weekend getaway, you'll be glad you did

Sail Date: January 17, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was at capacity for a 2 night get away out of New York. There were couples,families and groups of friends just hanging out. While it was New York cold, there were plenty of activities throughout the day. The rooms were about the same as a carnival or princess balcony room, however, the balcony was tiny. Not what I am used to. The non fee restaurants were ok, there was some variety. The clubs hadgood music, the bars were plentiful. The highlight of my two nights was hanging out at the blues club. Slam Allen and his band was great, great and great. That guy had some voice on him and his choice of music was excellent. Without exaggeration, his shows are something I'm goingto brag about. I did not experience long lines getting on and off the ship. Things went well and was organized. I'm planning for my next weekend getaway. If you need a break, two nights on the breakaway is your answer New York
