The NCL Breakaway is a huge ship with the crowds to go with it. They've tried to break the hordes into many dining venues which does give one more options than a smaller ship. (We missed having a grand dining room although The Manhattan Room with live music and a dance floor was nice.)
The biggest benefits: extraordinary live shows (and the cheap price).
Another plus was staying in Bermuda 2 nights versus the typical in at 7am and out at 4pm. If you like having 5 water slides (for adults - these are fast!), a bowling alley, and numerous kid activities this might be a cruise for you.
Smaller cabins, overwhelming crowds, SMOKING areas scattered around so the odor is many places, poor dining room service, and mediocre food were some of the negatives.
