September 2016 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western
Our dining staff and our room steward were excellent - they went over and beyond our expectations. The staff at the Guest Services desk were not friendly nor helpful. The entertainment staff was disappointing - specifically for Bingo. After we bought our cards to play the $3,000 game, they informed us that if they did not have a winner (in a blackout game) within 49 numbers - the prize would be reduced. This should have been stated before cards were purchased. The prize was reduced to $800 - quite a difference in winnings (not me). I did ask for a refund on my card purchase and was never even given the courtesy of a reply. The Breeze has a problem on Deck 11 as exhaust fumes from the engines fall on the rear of the ship. It falls on the chairs and stains your clothes - diesel is next to impossible to get out of your clothes. They completely remove all cushions there on the last day of the cruise - bummer. I do not like having no smoking section on the decks with pools. If you are a smoker, you have to leave the pool area to smoke - the deck should be split so that smokers can remain "by the pool". Our ports of call were very good, we especially enjoyed Belize City and Roatan.
