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.

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!

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.

It is a big ship. If you like hanging out in the pool, you might not be happy as pool space was at a premium. You do need to get your chair early as people reserve chairs with towels and clips before breakfast. We had been on Carnival last time and they monitored the chairs. If you left your chair for more than 45 min they removed your stuff. I liked that idea. With a ship of this size and limited poolside chairs, that made it fair. I would bring a coffee travel cup. I brought mine as I love coffee in the morning. Many people commented how they wish they had brought theirs too.

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!

Make reservations for the specialty restaurants and the shows before you cruise otherwise you could be out of luck.

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.

Go to relax and take advantage of the anytime dining experience. The French Bistro is excellent.
