A Cruise to Remember

Sail Date: October 25, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

This was a beautiful ship with a spectacular crew. Props to Jamie the Cruise Director for keeping everyone happy in spite of rainy, cold weather and missed ports. We were never able to dock in Monaco or Venice :( but they did our best to provide free internet access and alternate activities. Most of our cruises have been on Royal Caribbean, but Carnival pleasantly surprised us. We had an exceptional trip on the Carnival Breeze. I was also very pleased with their internet service, which we have experienced problems with in the past on Royal Caribbean.

Pros: Ports

Cons: Missed Venice and Monaco due to weather

Recommends Carnival Breeze? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very new clean ship. Decor is not extravagent\, but very comfortable and pretty
Food and Dining
Waitstaff was very accomodating and we found the food to be very good\, except for the luncheon at the Italian Restaurant. We did not dine at the Italian or Steak restuarants at night because we felt the addtional prices were excessive. Dining room meals were great with several comfort food options nightly. Buffet for breakfast was exceptional and service was very quick.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony was smaller that we we have had previously\, but we still enjoyed it on the warmer days
Service and Staff
Very friendly staff. We especially loved our dining room/bar staff - Thomas\, Wa Won\, Florentino and Gabor. They did a great job and worked very hard for our large group.
Nightly entertainment had to be rescheduled due to missed ports and we were not able to see one show\, and several comedians that we had hoped to see. Later we were told that we could have changed our dinner time to see them\, but we were not aware that this was an option. I would have liked other day time activities for our at sea days (went from 3 at sea to 6 due to weather problems).
