Overall, good - Cabin - AWFUL

Food is plentiful, though not quality. If cruisers are going to eat, they'll be disappointed.

AWFUL - Avoid the Cove balconies below the Galley. We booked a balcony guarantee, expecting to get a Cove room, so weren't upset when we did. However, the upsetting part was the noise. The cabins are directly under the galley, which operates 24/7. We could constantly hear the banging/clanging of pots, pans, silver, everything being washed and thrown around. I contacted Guest Services immediately and was told they'd had complaints about this in our cabin before, but the ship was full and we couldn't be moved; if someone left at port, we could be moved. Nobody left. Our Room Steward advised calling Guest Services each time it happened. I called Guest Services each night, each night they advised they'd contact the F&B manager and the noise would subside for about an hour. For what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, most of it was interrupted by the noise above us. Cove balconies themselves are nice, same as a "normal" balcony room, just horrifically noisy. If you're booking a Cove, consult the deck plan when choosing a cabin

Quite diminished on the Breeze. We sailed on the Destiny in January and had many more entertainment options. Not sure if they struggle to book enough entertainment on an 8-day itinerary, but it was disappointing. The highlight of the entertainment was the comedy shows, which you needed to show up about 45 minutes before hand to make sure you get a seat and aren't locked out before the show starts.
