Review summary

We had a fantastic time on the Breeze! FTTF was well worth it and we enjoyed the perks of the spa balcony cabin. Our location on the ship(11243) could not be beat, we were close to everything. The Hub app is a must! tells you what is going on at all times and what restaurants are open at that time. Could not access our cruise pictures through the app, however which led to some frustration when it came to narrowing down and purchasing photos. We had to go to Pixel gallery and use the i-pads. They will try to push a certain package, but I just told them what i was looking to purchase and they worked with me. Be firm! Food was very good, ports were excellent! Staff was incredible and very accommodating wherever we went. Would cruise on this ship again!

Embarkation

We had FTTF and were on board within 15 minutes from the time we parked the car.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was great. Steakhouse had excellent service. Buffet had good variety, but could use a better layout(i.e. different stations to avoid the mega-line that happened during peak times). Had your time dining and it was great. You can check in for a table when you are ready through the Hub app and it will notify you when table is available, very simple and it worked perfectly. We never had to wait.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Tons of activities! Always something going on. We enjoyed the variety and using the Hub app to see what was happening at any given time.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
DJ's we great. Loved the string trio in the atrium and steel drum guy on Lido. Could never get into a comedy show, always jam packed which was disappointing.

Children's Programs

2 out of 5
8 year old was upset over something and was crying when we went to pick him up. Got conflicting stories. We were not happy at him being ignored. Staff seemed overwhelmed. Too many kids, not enough adults. Check-in and out space was too cramped/not organized. Our child refused to go back after night two due to his experience.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff is excellent. Welcoming. Happy. Cruise Director, Schwartz was phenomenal. he was everywhere always interacting with guests. Room steward, Sabina, did a fantastic job. Always great service in dining room. Staff constantly cleaning.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the layout of the Breeze. It was very clean and staff was always seen wiping things down, cleaning public bathrooms, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was very clean and surprisingly had plenty of space for 4 people. Beds were comfortable, no issues except would have liked more hangers in closet or I would have brought more of my own!

Ship tip

Get the Faster to the Fun! Totally worth it! And Spa balcony has access to thermal pool and steam rooms. Loved it! Heaven!

Ports of call

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Loved Amber Cove. It was clean and felt safe. We did an Outback excursion and it was the best! Visited a school, plantation home, had lunch/shopping and a beach visit. Fantastic Day!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Have been here before. We did a snorkeling excursion on the catamaran, Castaway Girl 1. Great day and saw sea turtles!

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Loved San Juan, very clean. Walked around the town on our own, did not do an excursion.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
First time here and was one of my favorites! Water is gorgeous. Cruise center is very nice. Has shops and a decent layout. We rented a golf cart inside the port and rode around the island to the lighthouse, Governor's Beach and Jack's Shack. Great day!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Again, FTTF got us off quickly and effieciently. Instructions are very clear and we were off the ship by 8:15 a.m.
