Carnival Breeze

October 2021 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Breeze

Carnival Vista

August 2021 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista

In summary all I can say is even though we had to jump through a lot of hoops to get back on a cruise ship it was definitely worth all the effort. The stress of waiting on our test results definitely wasn’t fun. Walking up the gangway and getting our first Sailaway cocktails made it all worthwhile. I was a little stubborn about carrying around my cell phone because that’s just not what I do on a cruise. There were always paper menus available at any of the restaurants. We were able to get a copy of the next days activities every evening or every morning just inside the sliding glass doors on the Lido deck or Guest Services. The 3D IMAX Documentaries in Surround Sound are a great deal at $5.50 p/p.

Carnival Breeze

September 2018 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Breeze

We went on a seven-day Cruise out of Galveston Texas with stops in Montego Bay Jamaica, Georgetown Grand Cayman and Cozumel Mexico. We weren't sure we were going to like the Carnival Breeze due to the large class of ship. But we were pleasantly surprised. From the moment we got on the ship it was just a wonderful experience. We loved the layout of the ship, especially the Lanai that goes all away around the ship. This deck helps relieve all the crowding on the Lido deck and is very quiet with lots of loungers and tables and chairs with umbrellas. We really enjoyed eating outside at the Red Frog Pub and pig and anchor barbecue. The layout at the buffet with all the palm trees and high top tables looks very nice. The pools on the side of the ship were never crowded and nice and quiet. We ate at the Steakhouse and it was simply amazing excellent food. The comedy shows were amazing so funny. In Montego Bay we went to Margaritaville which was a blast and the Rose Hall shops. In Grand Cayman we went of course to Stingray City such a beautiful experience. Then it was off to Cozumel Mexico to our favorite party place Mr.Sanchos. The crew was just fantastic from the room steward to all of our Waiters and bar staff. I also have to give a shout out to all the passengers everybody was just amazing and fun to be around

Cruise tips

Belize City, Belize

In Belize we took the 20 minute water shuttle ride to shore. We didn’t have any excursions planned here so we just did a little shopping and had food and drinks at the Wet Lizard. It was oppressively hot and 96° and it was very hard to breathe through your mask and it is strictly enforced so after about three hours we jumped back on the water shuttle back to the ship.

Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista

The ship is so big and so much to do you really have to remind yourself to slow down and relax because the time goes by so fast and you’ll wear yourself out trying to everything.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

This was our first time visiting Roatan. We docked at Mahogany Bay. We don’t usually book cruise ship sponsored excursions but we did this time because at the time we booked this on short notice we didn’t know what the protocols were going to be as far as going on excursions through a private party. We went to AJ’s Monkey, Sloths and Macaws. We got to hold and pet the Sloths for quite a long time before moving over to the monkeys 🐒. We must’ve been in their little area for at least a half an hour as they would jump all over you as you would feed them. Then we went into where they had all the big, beautiful Macaws. Our next stop was at a Iguana Reserve where we hand fed Iguanas and gigantic Tarpon fish. Our last stop was at a market area where you could buy food drinks and souvenirs and watch local dancers perform. After we got back to Mahogany Bay we purchased tickets to get on the flying chairs that takes you over to the beach. We probably rode it back-and-forth five or six times. What a beautiful beach it is.

Key West, Florida

It looks like the citizens of Key West have come up with enough signatures to get a referendum on the November ballot to ban all large cruise ships from stopping in Key West. It will be interesting to see how that plays out. We’ve never cruised to Key West before,but have vacationed there several times. I would think all the business owners and their employees that rely on the cruise ships to make a living are hoping this referendum doesn’t pass.

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel is our Caribbean home away from home. Rather we fly to Cozumel or cruise there, we just love being there as there is so many great options to spend your time there. After going to Mr.Sanchos many times we decided to go to Nachi Cocom. I now understand why everyone raves about this place. It is definitely quieter and more laid-back than Mr.Sanchos.
