Default Novice Question-Port Day

First cruise (well, in recent decades anyway!)....we are on the Breakaway July 7-14....is the ship busier, or less busy, on port days? Do most stay on, or get off, or is neither noticeable?

Thanks for feedback!

The ship obviously is going to be less busy on a port day when everyone can get off as opposed to a sea day when no one can get off!

I have not been on breakaway yet, but on our 2 previous cruises I loved port days to stay on the ship.. there were plenty of chairs by the pool and no lines for the water slides! Plus undivided attention from the waiters!

Yes, the ship is a lot less crowded on port days, but there is still a decent amount of people who choose to stay on.
