Review summary

All in all I had a great time. The Breeze is a beautiful ship inside. I was expecting the food to be mouth watering because of all the talk and it wasn’t for me but, it was good. There was plenty of it with lots of choices. I really enjoyed the entertainment. I will go on another cruise one day and I look forward to it.

Food and Dining

I wasn’t enamored with the MDR’s food. The entrees seemed to lack flavor/spice. Some of the food I did enjoy was the Guys burgers & fries, Mongolian Wok, frozen yogurt, chocolate melting cake. Even the Steakhouse wasn’t fantastic.

Mongolian Wok

Another wonderful place that I would frequent more but I found it on my last day. Veggies and choice of meats and sauces hand cooked just for you. Delicious 😋!

Great Happy Hour prices with their Fishbowls and Pitchers. Super way to start out the cruise.

Guy's Burger Joint

Now this food had flavor!!! The burgers were delicious, and I don’t eat a lot of burgers in my diet. Plus the fries fresh, tasty, and crispy. Winner!

I was not impressed with this restaurant. I ordered the Surf &Turf and it just wasn’t very flavorful to me. The Yukon Gold mashed potatoes with wasabi could of had a little bit more zing to it for my liking. The free bottle of red wine was horrendous. It had a terrible bitter bite to it. We didn’t even finish a glass and left the bottle there. I would not go back to this restaurant with the added cost of $38. Sorry 😐

I enjoyed their lunch menu one day. The food came out hot and tasty. The bread was good too.

I ordered a breakfast burrito from this venue and it was so salty I couldn’t even eat it. 🙈

Onboard Activities

Never having been on a cruise ship I didn’t know what to expect for pools but I did think they would be bigger. I enjoyed laying out though.

Beach Pool

I thought the pools were a tad small for all the people on the deck.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The ovations theater was wonderful and I enjoyed the performances very much. The PG rated Punchliners Comedy club was great but walked out of the late night one due to such fowl language and material. Lip Sync was great also and our Cruise Director Swartz was the best!!!

Ovation Theatre

5 out of 5

Over the top productions! The guys and gals did a fantastic job of singing and dancing their way across the stage. Wish the show were a bit longer because they are soooo good.

Cabin / Stateroom

It served its purpose of sleeping and getting changed. It was always made perfect by our Steward. We had a problem with the toilet but they came and fixed it right away.

Ship tip

It’s a big ship so make sure you get some walking exercise before coming on, lol

Fairly quick. Got hung up around the elevators because there was only one running. But all in all good.
