Granted my experience with the Breakaway was 2 years before my recent time on the Escape but I enjoyed the Breakaway more. It seemed much less crowded but I don't know how close to capacity both sailings were. Escape only holds about 300 more but it sure seemed like a larger difference. Escape did have the Tapas place and that was incredible.

For a December sailing weather will likely be warmer from Miami than from New Orleans. That's another advantage Encore has over Breakaway. With that said I have no issue with sailing from New Orleans at that time of year as we have done so as recently as this past January. We can drive to New Orleans and prices are often quite a bit less. If the prices you are looking at are close and you will be flying to either port, Encore is the better choice in my opinion.
