Carnival Breeze

August 2013 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Southern

What Happened to the Evening Shows??

NO Orchestra anymore!!! There were a mere 8 artists who lip -synched and jumped around . The background was flashing lites and computerized noises that sounded like a bunch of un organized boom boxes. I hope this is not the NEW thing. I found myself hoping no one passed out to the EXTREMLY fast paced workout. The comedian shows were for Adults or General Audience. I dont think a comedian needs to get dirty to get a laugh....The show host seemed to delight in chatting up the audience before the performances by trying to embarass individuals, pushing for personal information. Then turning it into something else. The best shows on board ended up being the "do it yourself" karaoke and talent stuff done by the passengers and crew.

Westerdam

June 2013 - Westerdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

3 Star Mariner Not Impressed

Not as classy as they used to be. No Chocolate Extravaganza. No Ice carvings. No Baked Alaska Parade with waving napkins. Drinks not as fancy but more $$. No little toiletries in balcony room . No boarding greet with champagne . No namecards on doors. Overall decor of ship very ordinary , where there used to be museum quality pieces. I realize "you cant go back"... but it just doesn't feel like the Holland America Style that was so unique. Looks like they are trying very hard to SELL you art and wine and spa and junk jewelry. The people who buy Shore Excursions have priority over others when disembarking ..when there is so little time in most ports anyway. Specialty Restaurants not much better than regular dining venue. Sorry not up to par anymore.

Grandeur of the Seas

April 2013 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Loved the beaches

Traveled when few kids around. Really a relaxing time and the shows were great. The adults only pool area was a delight except it was very humid with the "top" covered.They could have stopped the fake bird chirping recording but nice not to have "elevator music" or else going! Nice medium size ship with happy crew.

Miami, Florida - VERY crowded to board..VERY long time in lines Why not have seats and refreshments??
Oranjestad, Aruba - Did Kayak tour to de Palm Island. All inclusive. Very Good. Best snorkel here.
Carnival Breeze Carnival Breeze - BIG ship. Lots of places to see and check out. Lots of different foods everywhere. Eat in the dining room whenever you can, and avoid the standing around in lines. Use the stairs ... stay away from the crowded areas.
