1st time leaving from Galveston.  Things to know?  Yes, like Alaska only flies in/out 1x/day, meaning when you disembark the ship, you will not be able to get rid of your bags until 2 hours before your flight.  Meaning?  When you arrive at 12 noon, getting off the ship as late as you can, you are stuck with your bags until 3:30 PM!  Warning.  No place to store them in Galveston airport either.  Suggestion?  Go to the Marriott and hang out until the ticket counter opens :)  Our cruise ended up missing Grand Cayman because of too much windy weather so they added another sea day.  Usually fine, but 4 sea days and 2 shore days made the cruise feel a bit unbalanced.  Nothing we could do though. Ship was beautiful, entertainment staff, cruise director (Leigh), Punchliner comedy guests fabulous.  Missed that there isn't an Alchemy Bar, but hear it's coming.  Montego Bay Jamaica tours with Chukka were crazy disorganized, but we still had great fun on zip line, tubing, and horseback riding tour.  But seriously, Carnival?  Have signs up for "each and every" tour you sell!  We spent 30 minutes just getting matched up to a bus for our particular tour with Chukka because there was no specific sign for us to go to.  And the driver was late getting back to the ship, so we did a lot of "suicide" driving on the bus back to the ship...crazy!  But we made it.  Food on Carnival these days in regular dining room is outstanding.  No need for specialty dining.  And 1st meal on board?  Of course, Guys' Burger!  Will be back!

Good trip

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We had a good trip however we are not excited to book another cruise. We missed the port of Grand Cayman due to weather. That was quite upsetting. Also, the entire second floor, where our cabin was located, smelled rather foul for most of the trip. It was quite unbearable in certain spots. We were also unimpressed with the cluster of a carnival excursion. There were way to many people, it was supposed to be a 2 hour excursion and lasted over 5 hours. We were nearly late to the boat almost running to get back on time. 

The best thing about the trip was the food. We really enjoyed the variety offered. All of the staff on board was very friendly. There is always something to do.

Our 11th Cruise

The food was excellent.  There were many choices to choose from.  All of the staff was great; very friendly and accommodating. 

We had a cove balcony, which we really enjoyed.  We liked being closer to the water.

It seemed as if there were more seating areas available to eat at on the Lido deck than on other ships we have been on.  Also, there were a lot more lounges available on the top decks to enjoy the beautiful Caribbean sun and warm breezes.

It was a much needed, enjoyable getaway!!!

I am already booking next year and am bringing a new cruising friend with me.  I would not hesitate to recommend Carnival.  There is something for everyone.  You can exhaust yourself covering all the activities or snooze thru the entire week on the serenity deck..  You can eat yourself into a coma or have yogart and fruit.  The choices are endless.

This was my first cruise and my girlfriend's 8th cruise with Carnival.  Speaking for both of us, I can say that the service we received was outstanding.  The crew was absolutely spectacular;  nice, courteous, friendly, professional, helpful.  I can say without a doubt that Carnival will be my choice for cruise ships.  A special thanks goes out to Costin (head waiter) and Lynn (hostess).  Not only were they professional but I felt as if they were my best friends by the end of the cruise.

My experience on Carnival breeze

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Well cruise was nice but as promised by I didn't get my on board credit as I was to get. I call and carnival called from the ship for 3 days and no one at cruise 411 could or would get a answer. When I'm promised something and pay for it as I did booking 6 months ahead of time I should get it. I have a sour taste of using anytime in the future.

I would not recommend this cruise to anyone. the ship is set up for 2000 guests and 1000 workers and they put more than 3000 guests on the ship. there is line ups for everything. when we took our first cruises there were 2 waiters for 3 table, now they have 2 waiter for 6 to 8 tables. The workers work very hard but they our just overworked by management. the food was subpar compared to other cruises. On this one the soups and the breads were good but not the rest. The people who kept the rooms clean did an excellent job. the rooms are very small. there is no sports anywhere and there is no sports bars. or espn. The breckfast menu did not change for 7 days and the lineups for omlettes were 10 deep. They disttroyed our luggage getting it up to our rooms  and would not accept any responsability  for any of it. there were lineups for all the activities on the 12 th floor. The only ggod desserts were in a seperate case on the 5 th floor that you had to pay extra for. The cookies they served could have been used for hockey pucks.When we first started cruising the dinning hall was open for breckfast,lunch and supper, not any more just supper. This cruise line needs a big change at headoffice as they are going down fast.

Sailing on the Breeze Celebrating 10 years

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I really enjoyed my cruise and believe that the other 5 passengers who sailed along with me for my Husband and My 10th Wedding Anniversary did too!  We LOVE sailing with Carnival Fun Ships because even though we are in our 50's we still love to have FUN!

 

Our Cabin Steward Daranee was absolutely AWESOME.  She inquired as to when we wanted service and took great care of us!  It always amazes me how they remember all of our names!

 

Our Dining Staff was AMAZING!  All the way from the Assistant Maitre d' April to the head waiter Ronaldo, to the assistant waiters Michael and Simeon!  They served us each night and remembered each night our preference of drinks (lemonade and iced tea) and had them on the table waiting for us to the grated cheese (heavy) on my salad.  They were amazing and Michael's dance moves are great!

 

The Entertainment staff is always a key area for us because we like to have FUN!  Leigh was an AMAZING Cruise Director.  We also enjoyed Caviar and William and want to thank each of them for what they do.

 

The ship was GREAT!  The water slides were EXHILARATING!  It was a much needed and enjoyed trip!

 

The only complaint that I have is the Manager of the Pixels Gallery. She had a very nasty attitude on the last day of the cruise and the information that was posted in the Debarkation Information ("Photo Purchases at Pixels Gallery:  Our photographers will be happy to assist you for any last minute purchases. 7:00 am-9:00 am Pixels Gallery, 4 Fwd") I was told was not accurate.  Being that this was my 10th Anniversary I wanted to purchase photos as memories.  I specifically wanted the embarkation photo because it was the only photo that had the entire group of family and friends who celebrated with us.  One of the members of the group had already purchased the original printed photo and I wanted to purchase the printed version and the download version.  I realized that online on the Carnival Hub app it was more expensive, so opted not to purchase online.  When arriving at the Pixels Gallery I was told that I could only purchase what was on the shelf and photos could no longer be purchased through the app.  Needless to say I was not very happy with that option because the specific photo that I wanted had already been purchased.  I was told that a duplicate could not be printed and so I asked for a manager to assist so that I could somehow obtain this photo.  When speaking with the Manager (whose name I neglected to obtain), she first had a very nasty attitude when I told her what my situation was.  She repeated what the photographer stated earlier...that I could only purchase what was on the shelf.  She failed to listen to what I was asking and ended up stating "you decide what you want" and walked away.  I have never had this type of service on a Carnival Cruise and was extremely upset.  My son told me to let it go and we determined that I could purchase the download version of the photo from the app.  I did this.

Carnival Breeze

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The breeze is a nice ship. Embarkation and debarkation were much more organized then other times I have cruised. The Breeze is a big ship with many passengers but it never seemed crowed unless by the pool. so my husband and I usually stayed on the serenity deck during the day and at night went to the pool when everyone was at early dinner since we dine late. we really LOVED guys burgers and the lines weren't to long either. as for the comedy shows they had one of the same comedian from the last cruise we were on and he did the exact same act. so that was a little upsetting. still funny. but the other comedian we had not seen and they were really good.

For a place that is not as crazy as the pool area, try the 5th deck. Lots of room in either sun or shade. Hot tubs on this deck are rarely used.

Recommend trying a side balcony. Our rear balcony seemed to get numerous whiffs of the smoke from the ships stack even in (or maybe because of) high winds.
