Feeling the Breeze. Eastern Caribbean March 2, 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Breeze was an hour late leaving port. I think the captain was trying to make up for it cause we were cruising at 39 knots for a few hours and the ship was rocking and rolling like I have never felt before. I had assured my daughter that she would not get sea sick because you can hardly feel the ships move at all. I was eating my words right about then. we could hardly walk down the hallway. We also usually get the patches which are very expensive. we didn't this time. we got "motion ease" from Walmart. I don't know if it worked or not. it is an oil you put behind your ears everyday. we did, we didn't get sick. maybe we would not have gotten sick anyway but who knows and it was very cheap. only $8.The captain also moved the ship time ahead on Monday an hour. I think also to make up that hour we lost.
Water park is really fun.. Rope sky track was hard and kinda scary for adults. kids can do it without a problem. Food, of course, was great in the dining room..we had anytime dining and they do it differently now. in the past when we had anytime dining we never got anyone who knew us. but now they know our names and somehow know what we drink and our other preferences which is cool.
Cruise was great. didn't see many shows. wasn't interested. did do some line dancing classes. the sail away party. some of the other parties, had loads of fun all around.
Debarkation was horrid. they stopped it at one point because people were getting off that weren't supposed to be getting off. some people just don't get it do they? we were number 30 so were some of the very last to exit. that was fine by me. stayed at the casino bar and talked with Lucjia (pronounced Lu see a) the bartender. a very very sweet lady from Croatia and drank funships until 10:30 am. I was a little tipsy by the time we got off. well it was 5:00 somewhere. Less
Cabin review: 8a2326
Would get this cabin again in a minute especially on this ship and her sisters. in fact I would have been really upset had I gotten a balcony like I usually get. I have always had balconies on the upper decks usually on lido or empress but usually cruise with only me and my husband. I have been on the Triumph, legend and the glory and they are set up differently than this ship. all the balconies on this ship above the coves are looking down on deck five. people on deck five can see right up on your balcony and into your room except on the very front and very aft of the ship. cabin 2326 is almost exactly midship. hardly any noise except for slamming balcony doors at times. It felt so private and I loved being so close to the water. we even saw a whale and some sharks.
