Enjoyed our cruise on the Breakway.  However,  there were a few things that we felt needed help.  There should be more crew - the bars were understaffed and there were not enough bartenders walking around by the pool.  Now don't get me wrong, the people that worked those areas did a great job and we enjoyed them but they did need help.  And speaking of the pool, it is way too small.  Children were in the adult pool and I even saw a baby with a diaper.  Staff should put a stop to that, but there wasn't enough staff.  Also too many children at Rock of Ages - absolutely not for children - we loved the show but really children should not be allowed in and the parents and children should have been escorted out.  Ok that's about all the negatives.  Everything else was wonderful - loved the shows, restaurants, staff - the trip was great.  We would sail on the Breakaway again.

Ship Tip

Just know that you won't get in the pool until you get into a port and a lot of people get off

Port Canaveral, Florida Did not visit port

Stay on the ship and go in the pool

As soon as you are advised to sign up for a tender do it immediately. Took way too long to get there and the best beaches were filled up.

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

Stay on the ship and go in the pool.
