Carnival Breeze

September 2014 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Southern

First Cruise-Ok not sure we will go again

I was not impressed with all of the sales pressure. It seemed like the cruise was focused around consumerism not relaxation. Persistent sales pitching was a big minus. Grand Turk was not a great stop. I loved Governors Beach. But again the focus was "duty free shopping" even though they don't tell you that there is a cap of $800 of duty free purchases per person. Mandate made by US customs. Spent 4 of the 8 days on the ship. We were digging deep to find entertainment on the ship for four days. Stops on shore were brief and left more shore time to be desired. Good if you are looking for a good spot to spend more time. Not good for active explorers. Thought this would be a good ship for a family vacation or older people that are less active. Marketing pitches were the biggest turn off. Spend Spend Spend little consumers.... Can I give it two and a half star?

 

Ship was nice people were friendly.

clwaine's Tips

Willemstad, Curacao - Liquor tasting was fun. Visited the old fort. Down town farmers market was cool very laid back community.
Oranjestad, Aruba - Had fun on the catamaran. Snorkeling not great. Ship wreck snorkel was cool. Free open bar Rum punch was great!
Carnival Breeze Carnival Breeze - Be prep paired to be bombarded if you walk past the ships retail shops. They pitch duty free is cheap, free samples and give aways. Most are cheap trinkets. Buyers beware of overpriced goods and services.
