Just returned home from the January 4 , Southern Caribbean. My wife and 4 kids . 22,22,21,20 We had a great time. Loads of things to do on board for everyone . The crew was friendly and they have a tough job to do with 4,000 passengers.The food was average and you had to hunt for the better Meals. The Italian and Steak House restaurants were very good and fairly priced. Guys Burgers ,Pizza Pirate, Mexican were all Good and visited by most of the passengers. We all visited the Casino and the staff was cruise friendly ( smokey at times)
We had 3 Cabins with balconies on the 8th floor mid-rear and that was a perfect location, 2 quick steps up to 10 and you are in the Lido Market for meals, 11 is the pool deck in the rear. Perfect location is mid.
The reason we picked the Breeze was because it was newer and the itinerary of the ports were ones we have not been to. Plus 8 days gives you an extra sea day. only mini complaint about the ports was the final stop of Aruba. Leaving the ship was always busy and could take some time to get off. Having to return by 3:30 did not give you enough beach time and time to shop. Considering the ship had 2 sea days to get back to Miami . A couple more hours on Aruba would have been appreciated.
Excursions: we recommend checking Carnivals trips and booking with private excursion company's or take Taxis to the popular beaches and you can save money. We highly recommend Pro Excursions on the Dominican port. They were a family owned business and went out of their way to accommodated all of there guests, no matter what age, Boat ride, Snorkeling, Stopping at Sandbar for rum and fun. Jessica and Crew were professional and fun.
We enjoyed some of the Shows and most of the Comedy shows . Fitness center was small and Stuffy.
Wife had a massage at the Spa and enjoyed it .
There is more good then bad on the Breeze, calling it a fun Ship is appropriate ! Plus being minus 17 below home in Chicago the week we traveled made it even better!!
