The Breakaway cruise was fun with my daughter, but there were a few problems. Lack of communication was a large one. No one told us we had to have the TV on, and tuned to a certain channel, to hear announcements made. There was no general information booklet specific to the ship in our minisuite. Other passengers agreed with the lack.

Shore excursions were very over priced.

The mid ships Atrium on deck 7 was where most of the free entertainment happened. On a ship carrying over 4,600 passengers there were only about 100 chairs available.

Too many things cost extra and then were generally way overpriced.

My daughter has life threatening allergies. The Maitre d' met with her daily to plan for the next day's food. Service and food in the "Complimentary" (baloney -  I paid for them!!!) dining rooms was excellent.

The snorkeling was fun, but there were so many people on the island the water did get stirred up. We were there 15 years ago, before the unfortunate current amount of development took place.
