Beautiful Bermuda crowded cruise ship!

In August 2016 we took the Breakaway on a cruise from New York City to Bermuda.  Booking through BJ's was a breeze, we got great rates and even gift cards to the store!  The cruise ship itself was gorgeous and had a lot of amenities however it felt over crowded especially in the pool areas.  On a seven day cruise we actually never got in a pool and didn't even get to sit in a chair around the pool as it was so packed.  We could have taken this opportunity while in Bermuda however we would rather spend time exploring the destination.  There was a private pool we could have had access to by paying a fee but by the time we learned about the pool area it was already sold out.  

Cabin / Stateroom I think next time we would pay the higher rates to have a suite with more room or a Haven.

If you want to get in the pool you need to go first thing in the morning. Also the ship has a policy that the pool chairs can only be "reserved" by placing items on them for an hour without being used. So if you cant find a seat move the stuff that has been UNFAIRLY sitting in the chairs all day!
