Review summary

I love cruising! The foid was great, our room steward was THE BEST! Our waiter/waitress in the dining room( the Posh) were amazing!! Our excursions were not the best but that was because of the weather.

Love our balcony. Seems like it was smaller than last year on the Breeze.

We got in late as it was pouring down rain and accidents on the freeway made the trip slow.

Well....we had an excursion and we got in the Tender Boat moved about a car length from the ship, then we moved up to the first gangway and had to get back on the ship. Too windy. No one got to go to the Port. 😥

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

We went to the Bobsled ride once. When we got on.....it started pouring( really pouring!)rain. We were soaked when we got finished and there was water in the bottom of our car. So we rode the sky ride back down and went to the Harley Davidson store, got shirts then back to the ship to dry off.
