Favorite part of the cruise was just the beauty of being on the vast ocean for 7 days and the way we were taken care of by all the staff. The ports were awesome too, loved the fact that I got to visit 3 different beaches on one trip. The food (specifically the burgers at Guys, the Burrito station and omelets, top notch. Of course the fine dining was impeccable, and the service, they treat you like you are the most important), entertainment (loved Flick and Schwartz, the comedians, and the country duo, as well as the nigh shift (keyboard player had us in stitches, what a great entertainer), and the violin players... they rocked some BonJovi!!), accommodations, were fantastic. 

 

Only things I would change. The casino is not a smoke free environment. you have to go through it to get to places. The other thing, not a big deal, is you have to wait in the breakfast buffet line to get milk and cereal and yogurt. It should be separate from the warm food like the eggs, pancakes, and french toast. That area gets backed up a little.

Our family Breeze cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

My favorite part of the cruise was the peacefulness of sitting out on my balcony or finding one of those large chair on the deck and relaxing in the adult only section.  There was plenty of places to find that quite places to just unwind.  I did not like so much the cigarette smoke I had to deal with in the open deck areas.  I wish there had been more musical shows or something along that line to enjoy with my husband.  I was not all that impressed with the comedians that were on the schedule.  I don't feel like they we're comedians but rather just making fun of the crowd that was there and boardered on the family friendly. The magic show was really good and I did enjoy his presentation.  Over all I would say the cruise was good.

This was our second time on the Carnival Breeze.  It wasn't as good as the first time around.  The shows were the ones we saw last year.  We cruised with an 8 and 10 year old and I was a little disappointed that the family comedy shows that were "family" shows had multiple sexual reference and countless drug references.  It was PG13... at least prob PG15.  I understand the drinking goes with the type of vacation but it does get a bit old seeing so many drunks and party goers by the pool where the littles just want to swim.  The atmosphere is more geared towards spring breakers.  We had to stay off the Lido deck and pool area most of the time because the dancing and drinking were obscene.  There are things that we really enjoy, the sky course, the water slides and of course the ice-cream.  The family dinners are nice and we did have some great excursions this round.  If you get the chance to swim with dolphins in Jamaica its so worth it.  We had a great time a tiki beach and snorkeling in Cozumel was awesome as well.  The cruise director was great this year, up beat and sweet.  The kids really enjoyed him, Schwartz

 "bye love you!'

Best (Carnival) Cruise Yet

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We found the Breeze cruise much better than the Magic cruise we took a couple of years ago. Although we had Suites both times, and they're "sister" ships, physically at least, we found the food, service, entertainment and Cruise Director to be far superior on the Breeze. Also, Carnival comes off as "cheap" compared to Royal Caribbean: like the lack of a live orchestra for the shows - excellent sound system and lighting, but canned music takes something away from the showtime experience. Also, Carnival offers no Concierge/services/priority seating/exclusive seat or anything extra for Suite holders beyond a bit larger cabin and balcony and priority Embarkation/Debarkation - a lot more money for not that much special. Carnival also has paltry Bingo prizes and inferior food and dining seating compared to Royal. The real problem was that the first days had fairly rough seas and not only did the boat shake a lot, but there were periodic, huge poundings/shakings that made it hard to sleep. The Steward told us that it was because our Suite was fairly close to the bow and it was even worse for cabins further up, but I think the boat has hydrodynamic design issues and a ship that size shouldn't pound the waves so hard or rock so much in any seas.

This is a beautiful ship to travel into the Caribbean!  We enjoyed the director Shwartz and all of the crew!  We thoroughly enjoyed Jamaica, Georgetown, and we went to Mexico to see Tulum.  The best part is the FREE childcare!  Every night our children looked forward to going to Camp Ocean after dinner, and if they stayed later than 10:00, it was about $12 per hour for 2 kids!

For a place that is not as crazy as the pool area, try the 5th deck. Lots of room in either sun or shade. Hot tubs on this deck are rarely used.

Recommend trying a side balcony. Our rear balcony seemed to get numerous whiffs of the smoke from the ships stack even in (or maybe because of) high winds.
