Embarkation

5 out of 5
Always great leaving from Port Canaveral, esp when you're platinum!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Breakfast & dinner in the dining room was spectacular, Fahrenheit steakhouse was marvelous with tons of food, didn't eat in the buffets because they're... not awesome. The coffee was really good all over the ship, which is rare.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Loved the fitness center and running track, dodgeball on the sports court was hilarious, pools weren't crowded with kids because their weren't that many kids on this cruise.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Musicians & DJs were great, fun squad (specifically Brad and Rebekah) were terrific, dancers were... fine, and comedians were not funny at all. Using the same jokes on two different cruise ships...

Children's Programs

Our kids weren't with us, plus they are too old now.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiters, bartenders, and room stewards on the Breeze were amazing, as we experience on all CCL ships.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Breeze is too big. Takes 10 minutes to walk from the lobby to the aft dining room. Despite that, the ship was great. All the great amenities that we expect on CCL ships. Would have been nice to have USB ports in the staterooms, but I brought my own anyway.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our interior cabin was fine for the two of us. Would have been nice to have USB ports and an extra table surface for random junk. But the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are spotless. We really like the staterooms on CCL ship. Having a fridge on the Breeze was terrific!

Ship tip

Bring a approved power strip with USB ports, bring earplugs for the incredibly LOUD music on the 12 deck at the lido pool, bring your own straws since they have been outlawed, bring air fresheners for the rooms.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
An easy time getting on and off the boat.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Really enjoyed our $40 daypass to the nearby (within walking distance) Playabachata Resort. Highly recommended. The Bay of Maimon is truly gorgeous.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
The 5 stars is for the port, not necessarily for the excursions. We did the sail and snorkel to Turtle Cove, which was... not great. This is the second time we have been disappointed with sail and snorkel trips in St Thomas. Not happy at all that the tour groups insist that you use snorkeling safety vests. Do yourself a favor and stick to the incredible beaches. Get yourself some food and drink at Bumpa's, and do your souvenir shopping at Caribbean Surf Company.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
One of my favorite ports of call. Old San Juan is amazing. Definitely eat at Punto de Vista Rooftop Restaurant for lunch, and get there early to put in your reservation.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Margaritaville Grand Turk is a total party. Snorkeling at the Grand Turk Wall with White Sands Charters & Tours (ask for Capt Donovan) was the best. Do not go to the large tour groups! Capt Donovan will give you the best bang for the buck!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Walked off the ship at 7:15am with the rest of the diamond and platinum VIFP people!
