Review summary

The Breakaway seemed crowded compared to the Joy. The Joy has a huge observation point on deck 17 where some Haven suites are. It spans across the entire front of deck 17 with food and snacks furnished all day long. Also beautifully furnished. To us, the layout on the Joy is much better. Food was equal but, the Breakaway lobster tails were very very salty. Heard the same from many guests.
