Review summary

My son and I had a wonderful Cinco de Mayo birthday cruise. Enjoyed the ports. Got great photos. I loved the food, everywhere but the dining room at dinner. Breakfast and brunch were always good . I highly recommend this cruise and these destinations. Will probably do the same destinations on the on Mardi Gras, in 2021.

Embarkation

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The drinks we're always super. I give them a 5. This 3, is because on this voyage, our dining room food was poor. Not the service. The service was superior. We paid for upgraded cuisine, which I've never felt necessary before. I cruise a couple times a year. Specialty restaurant food is superior, even to this foodie. But almost necessary. I never eat off of buffets, so can't comment on that, however, all the other fresh food choices, Guys burgers, etc...are incredible. Really good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Shows were all, as always, very good. Very entertaining. Very familiar with this Loved, loved "Flick"!!! The female string trio was enchanting, so talented. Just fabulous. The comedians were fantastic. First rate. This ship lacks pools. Spa and fitness center were 5 star.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
All fantastic, truly. My favourites were "Flick", the female string trio, brought tears to my eyes with their rendition of my favourite metal classics! They were superb. I've seen them twice on the Breeze, this time and in Jan. Comedians were hysterical. And Cruise Director, Schwartz, is the best yet. Love you, Schwartz. You're amazing. I hope they're paying you a lot of money, because tv, will snatch you!!!

Children's Programs

No kids. Well my son is 30!!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
EKO took care of my son and I, in 12026. Perfect service. Couldn't have been better, this time. Always on point. 5 stars EKO and your team!!! Waiters at table 583, early dining, were always entertaining and also on point.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
This ship needs a little work. Her teak surfaces, rails, steps and such are showing her age. The ship was very, very clean. Always.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Great, clean spa balcony stateroom. This ship has lots of movement for it's size. I fair better, midship, I'm afraid. And...on the 12th floor, no cover over balcony, and I like the shade. There was also, to me an unacceptable stain on the couch in our room, that clearly would not come out, without re-covering it. It also looked stretched out and old. Felt compelled to cover it with a towel. Our room steward and his team were spectacular.

Ship tip

Bon Voyage! Enjoy the staff. By far the most interesting people.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Love this port. No excursion. My sis lives here.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
Would go back. La Ventana Resort, our all inclusive excursion was gorgeous. Would definitely go back and stay a week.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

2 out of 5
Would not go back to St Thomas. Don't pay for the excursion to Coki Beach and Coral World. You can go by cabs that run all day, for $9.00 and they're more polite and accommodating. I took a cab on the way back to the ship. The lady driver gave us a fabulous tour and some great history, all the way back to the ship. I tipped her double fare. She was wonderful. The driver that took us, to our excursion, was beyond rude. We should be ashamed that this is a US territory. The other Islands in this string, are superior. Views are beyond amazing from a ship.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Loved Old San Juan. The architecture is from the same time period as Charleston. Only it's a little bigger and they're doing a better job with their trash. I would definitely go back to Puerto Rico the people were wonderful. So impressed with our tour...Best of San Juan. Our tour guide was a native and incredible.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Grand Turk is always beautiful. The people are beautiful and kind. The water is a magnificent aqua. I've been twice. It's a wonderful place.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Disembarkation was great. I usually have an early flight out of Orlando airport. So they always get me off the ship right away. No complaints.
