O'Sheen's Irish bar is the best place to go for an enjoyable sit down breakfast. It is also great for lunch, where you can even be served at the bar!
Deck 16 burgers are great. Deck 16 no wait for breakfast omelets. Large posters on wall are the kiosks and book your activities right away. Bring ear plugs. If you go to Taste for breakfast you get a decent order from a menu breakfast.
Loved all the restaurants on board including the Buffet! Lots to do for kids.
If there's a show or restaurant you really don't want to miss, make a reservation well in advance online, or you might miss out. Also, be prepared to spend more onboard than you might have on other cruiselines.
you should book all of your activities or entertainments ahead of time, otherwise you have no show available if you wait till a last minutes. We had so much fun at Bingo games
Rock of ages is a good show, but get on ship and make free reservation immediately. theater cant hold everyone on ship so even of you don't know you're gonna go, grab your seats. if you don't go, then just don't go. show is an hour and 45 min. a real Broadway show so get comfortable.
Just go with Carnival. Might not be as big or as glamorous - but at least they care about their passengers and not just the money they can make off of them
Be sure to see Burn the Floor, Rock of Ages and Jungle Cirque. Also, try the hamburgers and salads on the 16th deck, outstanding.
Don't book a room on the Aft portion of the ship for the top floors unless you tend to stay up until 1 in the morning.
Tip: If you want no lines on the pool deck for the water slides and an open pool, spend one of your port days onboard when most people are off the ship. One of the best days was that day because we had the ship to ourselves during the day, and then we saw a great Second City performance that night!!
Breakaway was organized very different from any other cruise we have been on. You had to make reservations to see the shows, instead of having open seating in the theater every night. This was a great idea, but it should have been in the pre-cruise material, so we knew what was going on.
Gotta try the Uptown Grill on the 16th floor for a fabulous burger. But don't go between 1:00-2:30...waited an hour for it!
Eating at 6/6:15 prevented any wait in the main dining rooms. Burger joint (cannot remember name) was great (albeit a long wait - but worth it). If you are prone to seasickness, the large ship was great for not rocking too much.
We ate mostly at O Shehans which was always open,and Savor,both were good.
Take advantage of all the offered shows.. they are fantastic!
Go to relax and take advantage of the anytime dining experience. The French Bistro is excellent.
Best waterpark on the seas. Tell Evan G'day.
Make sure you make your show resevations as soon as possible.
Try to eat anywhere but the Garden Cafeteria whenever possible or only during off peak hours. Bring a large reusable cup for drinking, as the glasses and cups are small. It was tedious to keep asking bar tenders and wait staff for pop and other beverages. The cup provided leaked.
Theater is rather small. If the show does not require reservations it gets really packed. Come early if yiu want good seats.
