April 2015 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western
Checking in was a nightmare, but thankfully ended before we gave up! Once on board, the Cruise Director, Mat was FANTASTIC! Orlando was just as good - both provided a wonderful way to start and end our days. The excursions were good but need reviewed independently because there were some flaws ... especially the Grand Caymans - what a nightmare getting there and back. Dining in the Blush provided a wide variety of food and the wait team was attentive for most of the cruise. Our only request would be to have pre-determined sleeping decks for families with children. It was disruptive and not very relaxing having kids run up and down the halls or have a screaming child not willing to sleep at night next door. We have been on other cruise ships that didn't seem to have young families on every deck and generally running around all the time. The cruise ship was clean and comfortable - had no problem finding lounge chairs. But locating food during the day without standing in long lines was difficult. Loved our room service - she was a delight and our room / bathroom was always clean and bright ... even filling up our bucket with ice every day. All in all we would recommend the cruise.
