This was the fifth cruise for our family of 5 with 3 young sons (4, 7 and 9) but our first time on the Breeze. We've previously sailed on the Sunshine (twice), Glory, and Fantasy. My first impression of the Breeze was the decor-I LOVED the more muted and modern look of the ship. I also noticed very quickly that it was larger than any of the ships we had sailed on previously-this was also noticed in the amount of people on the ship, we did notice longer lines for dining, longer waits for elevators-nothing huge or inconvenient overall.
We arrived around 10:30 for embarkation (we prefer to arrive early to get seating with our 3 children) and were on board by 12:30 and the terminal was EXTREMELY crowded once we were finally boarding (zone 3) I'd recommend arriving early unless you're comfortable waiting in a standing room only situation or arrive later when the wait isn't as bad.
As always the service was awesome and always with a smile-Ermie at the Serenity deck bar makes the best spicy Bloody Marys and our room attendant Cecil on Deck 1 was fantastic! The staff at Camp Ocean was all smiles and really helped our 3 boys feel comfortable-my 7 year old says Luke is one of his new favorite friends!
