This was our first experience on the Breeze since the change of ownership from Seabourn to Windstar. We were catching another ship in Europe for a cruise in the Mediterranean for a month so we decided to do the two week Windstar crossing from Barbados to Lisbon rather than fly. Having read other reviews, we were pleased to discover the ship was not carrying a contingent of workmen contracted to do maintenance work that would interfere with our enjoyment of the cruise.
Comparing the different Windstar ships is like comparing different champagnes. Each experience is delightful and different. The unifying overall enjoyment originates from the hard working and faithful Windstar officers and crew who make every effort to call you by your name and remember little things from how many towels you want in your bathroom to your personal beverage preferences in the diningrooms.
Our suite was mid ship on deck 5 and steps away from the circular stairway and the elevator.
