We enjoyed our week on the Breakaway but we're very disappointed in the pool area. The pools are way too small for 4,000 passengers. We spent our first morning in Bermuda finally enjoying some time at the pool. (All of the pool hogs went to the beach.) This was a major design flaw. 

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Complimentary food was ok. We upgraded to the specialty dining package for 3 nights. There was a big difference in the food. The upgrade was definitely worth it but it's kind of annoying that we had to pay even more for an already expensive cruise.
