Itinerary:  Jamaica, Cozumel, Grand Cayman

We loved the Breeze.  We stayed in our first cove balcony, and really enjoyed the cabin.  It was the first Starboard cove.  Location is important with these cabins.  The aft coves are under the galley and reported to be very noisy.  Ours was quiet, and you just can't beat being that close to the water.  The balconies don't get direct sun, but that was a plus for us.  

Menu was American table, our second experience with the "new" menu.  We really like the choices, and never had a problem finding something we wanted to try.  We prefer YTD, since we don't like having to be on a schedule when we are on vacation.  

The ship has most of the 2.0 bells and whistles.  There were long lines for shows and restaurants at times, but it didn't take long to figure out the best times to beat the crowds.  

CD was Mike Pack.  He really added to the fun onboard.  He is one of only two CD's who we actually noticed on our cruises, the other being Jaime Dee on the Sunshine.  There was always something to do, but also plenty of places to enjoy some peace and quiet.

One of our favorite activities onboard is people watching on the Lido.  There was plenty of seating as long as you didn't mind not being close to the pool.  

Great ship, great cruise.  Within a week after coming home, we booked our upcoming Sept cruise on her sister ship, the Magic.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, plenty of room for three, and location was perfect.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Miami is not our favorite port. It was okay with no real problems. It just pales in comparison to our experiences at Port Canaveral and Jacksonville.

Try the cove balcony, but be sure not to book one under the galley.
