Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We sailed on the Breakaway in June 2013 and again earlier this month.  What a difference!  In June, I seemed to spend all my time walking the passageways to the back of the ship for food and then to the front for entertainment.  What a bore.  It didn't happen this time and the only reason I can find to explain the difference is the location of my cabin right next to the aft elevator lobby.  The ship has only two banks of elevators and all the activity centers are located between them  and easily accessible.  We had a mini-suite the first cruise and a balcony cabin the second.  The balcony cabin seemed more comfortable.   We discovered Spice H2O which we didn't remember from the first cruise, but it's a lovely open deck on the top rear of the ship which is child free during the day and becomes an entertainment venue at night with an enormous led screen for showing movies and DVD's.  We loved the ship the second time around.  The only drawback for late night snackers like us, is that there's no place to get a cookie or piece of cake after eleven at night.  We wound up eating hot dogs in O'Sheehan's at midnight.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
O'Sheehan's and the Manhattan Room are the best food venues on the ship
Service and Staff
Fire and Ice, Howl at the Moon and Burn the Floor are excellent. Can't say much about the others.
Children's Programs No kids
Onboard Activities
No learning experiences
Destinations and Excursions
Bermuda is beautiful.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bring a nightlight.


The ice cream that's free in the cafe at lunch is as good as what you pay for the rest of the time on deck 7.
