Is wish we were already booked on the Breakaway ... but alas we only have one cruise planned .. The Royal Princess in The Med in July. The Breakaway looks nice, but we will "suffer" with the RP for now !

I was on the 2-night Breakaway inaugural and was really impressed by the ship! A new, great option for NYC and I can't express how convenient it is to leave from here and not have to worry about flights before or after the cruise!

Pied Piper is a gay travel agency out of NYC. The fares are discounted and you travel as a group on a regular cruise but you don't have to be with the group in all of their functions (but the free cocktail parties are a definite must participate). We've traveled twice with them. Pied Piper was our first cruise.

If you'd like to talk more about similar cruising interests feel welcome to e-mail us at Montclair2Guys[at]aol[dot]com.

Aquafest Cruises is another agency that puts together gay groups on regular cruises. My partner and I sailed with them recently on a Celebrity transatlantic. It was our first sailing as part of a group. We thought they did a great job and would definitely sail with them again.

lol...will do!

I see you were on the Breakaway and didn't like the layout of the buffet either. I prefer the food station buffet and the fact that when you walk in you can see around the space, the guest and the food. This 'square' buffet set up was yucky to me.

I love your Breakaway photos, you have great pictures of the public spaces which I did not.

I'm going to check out your GEM review next, we are cruising her in December for the Christmas/New Years sailing.

Has anyone begun planning for 2014 yet?

We are looking at Hawaii on NCL's Pride of America, last sailing in May. I'm also thinking about RCCL's Quantum of the Seas.
