Clean, crowded cruise from Pier 88 NY. Huge ship, plenty of amenities. Food in free buffets passable but pay extra for the Ocean Grill, Cagneys Steakhouse and the Italian restaurant. Pool area very, very noisy n overcrowded. Entertainment: The best show by far Cirque Jungle dinner show. Dueling pianos Howl at the Moon was alot of fun especially after 11... More

Attendant advised that we were waiting for several others going on the tour and that she would call us when they were ready. We asked her again at 6pm, 615, 620, and she advised that she had called the tour guide and for us... More

We went bay fishing during the 6-10 pm time frame. First there was unknown problems with the boat and about 7:15 we got into a replacement boat. The crew on the boat was unfriendly and no help at all. There were a few fish caught on the boat but if you wanted any help from the 3 man crew you... More

OMG! This was our first time to go to South Padre Island but it definitely won't be the last. I am actually already planning another trip for before the summer is over. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo (the Inverness) with the most spectacular view! We booked through Breakaway Cruises and couldn't be happier with that choice.... More

This was on my bucket list of things to do. I enjoyed every moment! The guys were professional, had a lot of fun cutting up with us. I will definitely be doing this again! Now onto tandem skydiving.....

During the bay fishing we finally started catching fish the last hour, but the crew laied around they whole time texting and facebooking on their phones. Not a good trip at all. During todays trip No one caught fish nor got a bite again... More

Captain Chris & Deck Hand Pepe were great!!! They joke around a lot & it's hard to know what is factual or real. They are both very passionate & knowledgeable about the marine life, dolphins, history, pollution-free beaches & ocean. The parasailing was easy & fun. They take care of everything. It was a great time.
