September 2016 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western
The wheel chair access for disabled folks was quite a mess!! while on our way to check in for reserved wheel chair met a Carnival individual with an empty wheel chair, asked if my husband could use this chair, was told he had just delivered a passenger off the cruise ship and was headed back up for another, so could not take my husband on board at this time. so empty wheel chair was headed back up on board does this make sense? ended up waiting for over 45 minutes for a chair only to be taken up to check-in floor. Then another wait of over 30 mins for chair to actually take my husband on board ship. This plan needs to be looked at and hopefully will be easier in the future.
Next concern, dining assignment. This has happened TWICE now. Our staterooms are towards the front of the ship on Decks 10, 11, yet we have been sent to the AFT Dining room, WHY? Both times we changed to mid dining, not a problem but another concern to deal with.
Next concern; NO FOX NEWS, only local Fox Channel from Miami, why no Fox News or Fox Business channel? CNN UGH! Not a fan.
Good things: Veterans meeting on board is awesome. Staff are wonderful, cruise director Mickey was outstanding as were dining staff. Overall great experience, just please forward to Carnival the wheel chair confusion. Not a great start to cruise for sure.
