Breakaway is a beautiful ship. However, the pool area is overcrowded and not well designed. My greatest displeasure was the quality of the food. Steak in the regular dining rooms was tough. The specialty restaurants were a disappointment. Modern for many is a novelty. However, I eat at Brazilian Steakhouses monthly and the quality of meat offered onboard was B+ at best! La Cecina, the Italian restaurant, didn't understand the concept of a base sauce on pasta so they brought bolognese which was terrible and way too salty. O'Sheehan's might have the worst food ever served on a cruise ship. Plus, they advertise to go and watch your favorite games. Unfortunately, they could not figure how to show any college football games on a Saturday in September. Really? A Sports Bar and no football?

Shows were fun and staff super friendly and attentive.

Unless the food is improved, I would not be in a hurry to take NCL again (first time on this line, 10 times on cruises).
