July 2015 - 8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Breeze
Ports Were Great, Breeze Was Not
I wanted it to be great, we had a terrific ocean view cabin with a very attentive cabin steward, the ports and itinerary were also solid and that's about were it ended. Go on Carnival Breeze if you want a very casual dining experience, the formal white linen service is twice. Drinking, Bingo, trivia games and shopping in their promenade is it for daytime activities. At night you can eat some more and go to the comedy club for 5 out of 8 nights(one of the five shows was truly entertaining), there was a magic offered the other two nights. There was nothing offered that was remotely enriching, such as cooking, jewelry making class, scrapbooking, or video editing. BlueIguana was delicious but VERY limited hours, the same thing is true with the Mongolian. The pools were crowded with 10 year olds throwing footballs across it, or doing canon balls onto other guests. Serenity (the adults only section) had limited chairs and two jacuzzis, no pool at all. The gym had good equipment and a fair amount, but no steam room open for all guests, it is now a pay only perk. I would rather pay for the use of all the ship than be nickel and dimed throughout.
