Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Awesome! The Mexican Cantina breakfast and lunch food was phenomenal! Chocolate dessert bar on Lido was absolutely heaven! The baked Alaska dessert in the MDR was the best I have ever have. Crab cakes, coconut shrimp, strawberry bisque, kale salad, keylime pie (in MDR) and the deli section on Lido was awesome. I don't eat pizza.

Hot tubs, serenity deck and spa amenities was great. The "hairy chest contest" that I watched was FUNNY!!!! The best guy won!

Entertainment

Breeze cruise director had the best personality and very outgoing. MJ String Trio (all female group) was phenomenal. They were very captivated and the best music group I have ever heard. The DJ played fantastic songs in the dance club.

Service and Staff

My room steward Eka was THE BEST!!!!! He was very personal. He called me and my husband by name every morning and evening. Had us cute animal towels and cleaned our room everyday. In addition, we had ice waiting in us each day. He has been working with Carnival for 10 years and most definitely needs a "day off" and a promotion. I can see him doing bigger and better things for Carnival. PLEASE give him a raise!!!! The dark hair guy at the Alchemy Bar (young, tall, attractive and with an accent) was funny and personable. He poured the drinks in a row perfect!!! Definitely had skills to do that.

Cabin / Stateroom

I did like the size of spa room.

Ship tip

Bring a tumbler/ yeti type container to fill up with apple juice/ guava juice because it is only served at breakfast and we often like something to drink throughout the day besides the weak sweet tea and lemonade.

The tour guide Fausto was really good and personal. He spoke fantastic English as well as Spanish. He gave my son some "currency" coins so he could buy something small to eat. The charter bus driver was an excellent driver even in small and tight places. Loved the free bottle of water on the charter bus.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Coki beach was so/so. I will probably not go back. I would have rather went to another beach. The sky lift was fun and the view there was great.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Loved the forts, blue cobble stones was gorgeous! The beauty of the cemetery was breathtaking in a memorable way. The "umbrella street" was very unique, different and amazing. Great idea to bring harmony to all. The church was absolutely just in awww. The details of the painting, architecture, symbolism and spirit was unbelievable amazing.

Grand Turk Island

Was not in port long enough to really enjoy this beautiful place. Was here the least amount of time and would have rather spent the most time here of all the ports.

Disembarkation

Very, very crowded and long wait but it was expected as the Breeze is a big ship.
