Breakaway Review

Sail Date: July 01, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

These mega  ships loose the experience, tried it twice. Theater only holds 700 people, the ship has 4,000 passengers. Have to make reservations & only had 4 different shows. Activities that were held in lounges & theater are done in the Atrium. Unable to get seats & difficult to get through. with all the crowds. Difficulty making Specialty Reservations. Getting off ship terrible, long lines went from back going around in a circle.  Cabin bathrooms couldn't flush 3 different days for about 3-4 hours. The pool much to small, no chairs. I personally enjoy the smaller ships, like the Gem class.

Cabin / Stateroom
My Cabin Stewart was excellent. They work very hard & have too many cabins to take care of.

Be prepared for crowds & lines. Make as many reservations before you go on ship!
