Carnival Breeze Overview
Thanks to its focus on casual, no-frills fun, Carnival Breeze was rated the best Carnival ship for onboard activities in 2019 according to thousands of verified reviews by Cruiseline.com members. Breeze’s onboard water park, WaterWorks, comes with PowerDrencher tipping buckets, mini-racers and splash parks, and the Twister, a 320-foot-long corkscrew waterslide. Active travelers can engage in friendly competition at SportSquare, the ship's onboard gaming area, which features sports courts and miniature golf, and for the truly daring, the SkyCourse rope challenge suspended high above the deck. For a different type of thrill, adventurous cruisers can take the stage and compete for prizes in Breeze’s Lip Sync Battle, while amateur sleuths make the ship their game board in CLUE: The Murder Mystery Game.
For the under-18 crowd, Carnival Breeze has plenty of age-appropriate offerings. Camp Ocean provides kids ages 2 to 11 with supervised, ocean-themed activities, and children 12 to 14 can socialize at Circle “C” lounge. For teens, Club O2 is the place to be with video games, sports, and karaoke. While the kids are playing, parents can indulge in a massage at Cloud 9 Spa or lounge around the Serenity adults-only retreat.
In 2017, Breeze received Carnival’s Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades, which included the Punchliner Comedy Club, Cherry On Top candy-and-more store, and Guy’s Burger Joint, where cruisers can savor mouthwatering burgers crafted by the Food Network’s Guy Fieri. Enhancements also included several new bars, including The Library Bar and the mixology-focused Alchemy Bar, which serves up custom elixirs with fresh ingredients.
Sailing from Fort Lauderdale and Port Canaveral, Florida, Carnival Breeze cruises range from six to 14 days with destinations in Bermuda and the Caribbean. Eastern Caribbean voyages may include stops at Nassau, Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Kitts, and Half Moon Cay, while western Caribbean destinations include Cozumel, Belize, and Mahogany Bay. Breeze also sails to the Southern Caribbean, with ports of call at Curacao, Aruba, and Bonaire. Longer cruises also have stops in St. Croix, St. Lucia, and Barbados.
What to Consider Before Sailing Carnival Breeze
With its wide range of exciting amenities, Carnival Breeze is meant for active travelers and families looking for a casual vacation at affordable prices.
Carnival Breeze has a reputation as a family cruise ship, so there are bound to be plenty of children on board, and a passenger capacity of nearly 4,000 means crowded public spaces. This ship is not for mature cruisers seeking a quiet, destination-based cruise.
