September 2016 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western
The Breeze is beautifully decorated. Even the buffet area is broken into nicely laid out smaller sections with a decor that reminds you or a tropical cafe.
Cucina Del Capitano is an excellent specialty restaurant at only $15/person. A real bargain considering the amazing quality of food, the small and intimate setting, and the impeccable staff and chefs!
We had a Cove balcony because we love being close to the water. This is always a great choice for us, but this time we seemed to be in a part that was under a noisy galley area. Our room was 2374. Excellent location and amazing room steward, Alfred, but we were woken with loud banging every morning between 3:30 and 4:30am.
The Indian food, Tandoor, on back of ship by back pool is amazing. Also, Guy's Burgers, Blue Iguana, and the bit hidden Fat Jimmy's BBQ (deck 5 midship) are excellent.
We tried the extra charge room service menu one day; most items $5. The Philly Cheesesteak "meat" was unrecognizable and tasted terrible. My husband's pizza was good though. The cookies in the Coffee Bar on deck 5 are $1.75 and amazing. They are soft and taste home made one batch at a time. Not like the hard mass-produced cookies on the buffet.
This ship's decor is very Caribbean and puts you in a vacation mood from the time you set foot onboard. The staff is excellent and the food is good quality. Galveston is a nice port too because you aren't surrounded by just ugly shipping container vessels. One block over is the historic downtown which is very nice to spend time in before or after your cruise and their are plenty of nice places to eat on the water close to the ship as well as museums.
We absolutely LOVED the steel drum music played in the atrium. Now that's a Caribbean Vacation!
