Review summary

I will not sail on breakaway or sister ship the scale is not in proportion. public gathering areas are way too small and uncomfortable for a larger ship. Having to small cigarette smoke when on bord is unacceptable and unpleasant.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Most of the food and drink was awesome. Had one bad meal in Manhattan DR, the braised lamb shank was cool and chewy, potatoes were over salted. Cagney was disappointed a bone in rib eye was not available. Any top line steakhouse would have it.

service was as expected but not over the top, bartenders were under staffed and overworked not allowing any personalization or friendliness.

Ship Quality

The casino is in the wrong place. I felt assaulted by the filthy smell of cigarette smokw when I was near the center of the ship. VERY displeasing.
