My wife and I are Platinum members with Carnival and have cruised on all the different classes of Carnival ships.

However, the Carnival/Breeze did not impress us as much as it's sister ship, the Dream. It looks as if a different design team was in charge and were told to cut costs, as much as possible. In our opinion, the decor was not nearly as nice, not as much marble, etc. - looked cheap.

We could not believe the quality of the food that was served - prime rib was too tough to chew. Guests all around us were requesting a different entre. For example, fried chicken, and that, too, was not up to Carnivals past standards.

Entertainment in the Oviation Theatre was very high tech, not nearly as nice as previous enterainment. No band, extremely bright LED screens and recorded music was too loud, no Las Vegas style shows. We were not impressed with the changes Carnival has made. I truly hope, other Carnival ships will keep their band and not change to the high tech screen, etc. We have always looked forward to the great food and entertainment. Elevators were too small,, also, spent more time waiting for elevators to stop on requested floors. Not Good!! WHAT A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, AND MONEY NOT WELL SPENT..

We will not cruise or recommend cruising on the Carnival/Breeze or any other Carnival Ship that has this new high tech entertainment. Please bring back the live band and live performers, as in the past.
