My family enjoyed sitting in the Great Outdoors on the Gem, watching the wake and enjoying eating outside.

Am I missing something, or is there no where on the Breakaway like this? I only see a closed (glass-in) buffet area, and cabins (and the recreation area, perhaps mini golf all the way aft?)

I believe the only public deck is deck 8 on the waterfront but that is just a walkway.

There is nothing on Breakaway like the Great Outdoors.

The great outdoors on Breakaway is slightly enclosed but they have tables by the side windows.

You also have the uptown grill.

But for watching the wake deck 8 waterfront aft is great or sit at the comfy chairs sea gazing..
