March 2015 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Breeze
We are still in the 'trying' phase of cruise travel. This is our 6th time, all with different companies. So what I write here is compare with other company's ship. This ship is new and very nice. Clean and well maintained. Kid's activity area is nice and big. Crew (especially the cabin crews) are very friendly. Food is fare in quality and variety. Dessert can use some improvement. The main disappointment I have on this cruise is the entertainment. Director Matt is great. But shows need more work. Last few times we were in holiday cruise and spring break cruise, we always get one or 2 guest performers. This time (in a sell-out spring break ship) we did not get any. The only activity that happens all the time is trivia and bingo. There are very little music in the cruise (like dance classes, music performance). In other cruise I find myself busy all day long doing music related things. Even when I walk to dinner I will pass 2 or 3 different music performance/dance on my way. But in this ship all 4 sea days (we missed a port day) I can walk up and down the ship all day long and will be lucky to see one music performance somewhere. It will be lucky to have 1 dance or dance class during the day. I do not feel very entertained.
