We were a party of 13 people from New Jersey looking to have a great time. They were unable to get all our rooms together so two cabins had to be on the other end of the ship on the opposite side. Ok so we dealt with that as we know things can't always be perfect. What bothered me the most was the fact that all the dinning rooms that were included (not upgraded) served the same food as the others and it was always warm and the selection wasn't the greatest. I actually ate the same food all week long. We were never told that the restaurants all serve the same exact food but with a different view. Each nights menu was different, but everyone was serving the same thing! We did however have dinner at the steak house which was awesome (highly recommend doing the up charge dinning). The Irish pub was by far the worst food we had. The chicken wings tasted like they were cooked in ketchup and tomato soup. Nothing in their was worth going back for. We actually left our meal on the table and went to the buffet. Come to think of it, we spent a lot of our time ending up at the buffet. The other problem was the fact that the ship was too big with way to many kids having a free for all. I guess the parents don't care that their children are running all over the ship and knocking on doors and running away and hanging out on the stairwells in groups. Would of liked to have seen them being attended to by their parents. I noticed that on smaller ships the food is of better quality and actually served hotter then what we experienced on the Breakaway. The best part of the cruise was the Martini Bar. Rachel the bartender was fabulous and William the piano player was a pleasure to listen to. That is where we spent most of our time. The ice room or whatever they called it was not worth the money at all. It was like being in a walk in with a heavy windbreaker on. Nothing special and your not missing anything at all honest! We played bingo one night in the comedy club which was very over crowed, but we made the best of it. We also went to the Comedy club for a show but some of us walked out along with others as it was boring.  We did some gambling and even won a few bucks. Your probably thinking that we're a bunch of old farts with bad attitudes but were actually not. I guess this ship was designed to attract families with kids. Well now I know and I will just have to try another ship. Have fun and make your own conclusions!

Loved our room and balcony. Looks just like the picture. Would of liked the blow dryer to be in the bathroom and not by the refrigerator where you place your food.

You had to cross a busy highway with your luggage and wait to be picked up. That was a little tough to not having parking for that.

Husband enjoyed the Space Center I stayed on ship.

Enjoyable but the lines were getting a little long at the bar.
