Photos of Breakaway M6 Mini-Suite with Large Balcony

Recommended Posts

Just got off the Breakaway recently and wanted to share some photos of the M6 Mini Suite with Large Balcony to help those who are interested in booking it. The last photo should be particularly helpful to illustrate just how large with balcony is.

 

As mentioned in previous threads, the location on Deck 8 really was fantastic with close proximity to the theater and atriums.

Thank you very much for posting these. Did you hear any noise from the theater or other cabins?

Thank You we are looking forward to our M6 on Getaway in May.

 

Did you find deck 8 to be convenient for getting around the ship?

For more details, we were in cabin 8126. It's right in the middle of the pack of M6's on the port side.

 

Never heard any excessive noise while in the cabin, although you could occasionally heard sound from the theater while walking in the hallway. In all fairness, I think it was Rock of Ages, and that show is pretty loud =)

Thanks for sharing! We'll be in an M6 on the BA in June. :)

 

Did you have to request the lounger or was it there waiting for you? I've seen reports of people not having them or having them at first but then the loungers disappearing and only getting it back after request with tip.

@MissMet - Upon arrival, there were already 2 chairs and 1 lounger in the balcony. We generously tipped the steward at our first introduction and requested a second lounger. A few hours later and the second lounger showed up.

 

On a side note, the lounger in the balcony was the same type as the ones up on the pool deck.

Thanks for the pics. I have been scouring the Internet for an ACTUAL picture of a M6 balcony since I booked one for October. I was starting to worry that I may have overpaid and would be better with a BX which was $300 cheaper. Your pics make me think I made the right choice!!!

 

One question since you were port. I heard the fireworks on BA and GA are on the port side aft. Did you try to watch them from your balcony? If so were you able to see them decently?

@wichitastatecruiser - I completely forgot to mention the balcony in respect to the fireworks show. It's perfect place to watch the fireworks show! Since the M6 sticks so far out from the ship's superstructure, your view of the fireworks is not obstructed in any way. Here's some photos:

Wonderful pictures! I don't believe that I have seen a picture of the bathroom before either. I love that sink! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for posting these pics! I have also looked before & wasn't able to find too many of a M6. I currently have a B6 booked but I'm hoping for a price drop so I can upgrade to the M6. Does anyone know if this is the standard bathroom for all mini suits?

Yes that is the standard bathroom except for family mini suites, I heard that those have a tub.

Many thanks for posting pics of M6. We have a M6 booked for our September 20th sailing and looking forward to enjoying the balcony especially after seeing your pics, which were great.

Great pics. My family and I booked the room directly across from you on other side of ship. We have our two kids with us. Do you know if the sofa has a bunk bed above it?

Wow I just realized how big the balcony is. You can essentially fit two loungers and four chairs!

Great cabin. I was in 8130 on the BA in June. Loved the balcony and short walk to the action! Our cabin did have the bed above the sofa, We kept it down the whole cruise.

I am so disappointed . my dh and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary in 2016. We want to cruise on the "Breakaway in April of 2016 with our kids and grandchildren. We will be paying for all the rooms and thought I was all set for the M6 category and then looked at the price. It was over $5000 per cabin. I thought that was ridiculous! what is with that price. I have cruised a lot and never paid c lose to that for 14days.!!!!!

Best part no chair hogs!

 

We bought Vibe passes for the week..... to be honest I only went once, Really enjoyed being out on the balcony. Next time I will not get the Vibe pass if I have this cabin.

 

We also had friends we met on the cruise watch the fireworks from the balcony the 7 of us fit just fine :)

Wow that is high, when I booked it was $40 less than the family mini suite for the week. And to be on deck 8 was great I took the stairs one flight up or down. I never heard any noise at all from other cabins.

 

You should keep an eye out for price drops as your cruise comes closer.

To the OP or anyone else that can post it. Do you happen to have a picture looking up to see the decks above the balcony?

I'd have booked one of these, but that 1/3 -1/2 of the ship trek down the narrow corridor to the elevator/stairs is unappealing

Keep watching the prices. When I originally booked our trip I chose an inside & B6 balcony because of prices. I kept watching & prices dropped. I was able to eventually get two M6 cabins for the same price I originally booked the inside!
