When in San Juan the Carnival Breeze was docked next to our ship.While returning back to ship on the Carnival side they were playing Caribbean music and dancing on the dock with the ship dancers on the Nieuw Statendam side they were handing out cold towels.Which side would you rather be on?

Food was good at the buffet and main dining area .Service was excellent

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
There are very few activities. This ship is set up for a older crowd .There should be something happening during the day besides eating and sleeping.

The BB King All Stars and The Rolling Stones Band were fantastic they were the only real entertainment on board. Unfortunately after a few nights they became repetitious
