Embarkation on the Breeze was not too bad, but the signage as you enter is not well displayed. You must ask someone to confirm locations. We waited about 1.5 hours and were aboard around 12:30.

There were really only three places in which you were able to get decent food. The steakhouse was excellent, but why pay for meals everyday when you already have paid the fare? Guys and Blue Iguana were also very good. The buffet is good is you like old, crusty, out of temperature food. It was assorted leftovers with a side of confusion.

The main dining room was awful, no matter which meal you ate. If you plan on eating any meal set aside 2-2.5 hours. Brunch was food that was left under a warmer or under-cooked. My wife received a raw pork chop, delicious!. The pancakes were fit to use as coasters as nothing would penetrate their rubbery crust. Mac-n-cheese is just mac without the cheese, oh there were chicken pieces that resembled balsa wood. Dinner service was not any better. From 40 minutes between courses, cold/tepid food, to hair in the soup, dinner was a disaster.

We were in Spa Cabin 12030 and its mattress was in dire need of being thrown out. Springs that poked you while you slept made the spa experience feel like being probed by aliens as you tried to slumber. Other than that the cabin was a typical CCL balcony room.

One final note, if you have Cheers many of the bartenders seemed hesitant to help you. You have to be assertive as you may be skipped over multiple times by patrons that came to the bar after you did.

If I had a time machine I would go back in time and warn myself not to book this cruise.
