I guess I was spoiled by the supreme food and service of a Celebrity Panama Canal cruise. This was my 3rd cruise. They only get an average 3 star rating from me. Food was not that great in dining room or in the buffet. In the dining room ... Read more

After reading all the negative reviews, we were surprised. Yes, the Miracle is an older ship and need a facelift, but overall it was nice and we had a good time. We arrived the day before our cruise and was at the pier by 11 am and ... Read more

This review uses experience on Royal Caribbean as a high water mark reference point; though the Breeze offers good value, it does not measure up to the quality of service, ship design, décor, and staff professionalism experienced on ... Read more

Boarding the ship was a smooth process. Disembarkation was also easy. It took us 20 minutes to get to our car from the time our section was called. They ran ahead of schedule and the process was quick and easy. All the staff in the ... Read more

First, I must say, this cruise was a deal (price) considering the awesome ports we visited: St. Marten, St. Kitts, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. So considering I paid a bargain price, I feel I received what I paid for. She is a pretty ... Read more
