Breakaway is BIG.  First time on NCL.  There was nothing bad about this cruise.  Prefer Princess Cruises style and Grand class ships.  Most problematic on this ship is lack of large enough adult pool area.  H2O zone great but no pool and the hot tubs always crowded.  Forget about main pool.  Cost for Haven not justified in our opinion. That would solve all problems but at a cost.  Food was great but a bit of repetition in buffet.  Specialty restaurants very good but with so many, you loose any relationship with wait staff.  All the staff was friendly and helpful.  With big ship it took 1:20 to leave ship.  Another factor of BIG ship.  Only two elevator banks meant a lot of walking.  Not bad but would be better with third elevator. We enjoyed destination of Bermuda.  Would probably opt for smaller ship in future.
