Review SummaryThe Breakaway is a MASSIVE ship with plenty to do and see if you plan well, but it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Keep an eye on the Freestyle Daily and have a plan and you'll do well with your cruise vacation.
Food and Dining
La Cucina - very good (4/5)
Main Dining Rooms - very good (4/5)
Garden Cafe Buffet Breakfast - Good (3/5) but WAY too crowded.
Garden Cafe Buffet Lunch - Good (3/5) but selection was surprisingly limited
There are not nearly enough shady areas to sit on deck and even fewer chairs when compared to the number of people on board. There were a few altercations over chair-saving that I saw.
Rock wall, ropes course, water slides were thoroughly enjoyed by my 9-year old daughter. Wife and I used the fitness center and it was well stocked with cardio equipment.
My main issue is that there was not a traditional revue show every night like on previous cruises I'd been on, and there was no stand-up comedian. There were 3 of 7 nights when I did not get to see a show because there was Rock of Ages or Burn the Floor only available those nights, and I saw them other nights. I know sometimes the revue shows are cheesy but at least they're entertaining!

Be prepared for long lines and huge crowds. If this isn't for you, another ship may be a better choice for you. Be sure to reserve shows and specialty restaurants in advance to get what you want.
