Cruised the Breeze on its 7th voyage

Sail Date: August 14, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

Please see the comments below: The ship itself was nice it was set just like all Carnival ships! Most of the main things ; ie shops, casino, clubs etc. were on the fifth floors as is most Carnival Ship.

Pros: The crew and staff were very good; colors were differnt from other Carnival Ships

Cons: Food was not the greatest! The entertainment was repeated and not very flamboyant as other cruises

Recommends Carnival Breeze? Yes!

Ship Quality
We like the color and theme not your normal Carnival colors
Food and Dining
The worst possible thing was the reusing of the bread & dishes that was left at a table and we witnessed these ourselves. During breakfast & dinner (at least 4 occasions) whatever bread was left over in the basket after people ate the staff put the bread not eaten back into another basket and served this to another passenger!!! This was horrible!!! We had a family of three but the tables were set for four and each time I moved the cups or put my hands inside the cups to move them\, the staff still used them and took the glasses to another table without inspecting\, this was awful!
This had been my 4th cruise this year on Carnival and the menu was the EXACT same on each ship!!! Thank goodness for Guy's burgers\, Steakhouse & Deli otherwise we were eating the same food.
Cabin / Stateroom
This is the first time we had a junior suite it was beautiful\, we loved the extra space\, the tub & closest! The only bad part was on our balcony\, since the jr. suites are located at the front of the ship\, people who went on the front part of the deck could look right into our room we had no privacy. Others with a balcony have had shields or blockages so others could not look onto their balconies. The way our room was set people could look right into our room and at night see everything!! We had to keep our drapes closed at all times\, no waking to the beautiful ports. In the morning we wanted to go out to the balcony in our pj's just like others did but there did ALWAYS people want to see the ports.... to our dislike we couldn't go out there unless we wanted everyone to see us!!!
Service and Staff
The worked very hard and seemed to me to be understaffed!!! They did always take good care of us!
The entertainment was not up to the usual standard\, not sure if it was because there were so many ports or what\, but they repeated the comedy shows & the entertainment shows and many nights there was no entrainment!!!
