The reason I am giving this cruise a 3 star rating is because the Carnival Breeze ship's overall design is poor. The Lido deck is horrible! You have to wait in long lines to get your food! They have a Barbeque Place on deck 5 which is opened during sea days, but the line was so long we skipped it. Our stateroom was located on the 7th deck mid ship and we could hear the people above us walking and the people beside us talking in their room and having pillow fights etc...In the adult only section "Serenity" which is located on the 14th floor has no adult pool and is located right by the slides. There are not enough seats available either. There are only 2 pools on the boat and both are small. At one tine we counted 60 people in there! You could not find a chair to sit in by the pool. We ended up staying on deck 5 because there was a hot tub and plenty of seats and not as crowded. The positive side of things is the service was excellent in the dining room and in housekeeping! Our family loved the ports of call and we enjoyed our time together. Overall, the value for a family of 6 is unbeatable.

The water was beautiful, but again not enough chairs on the beach in the area they have roped off for Carnival guest. The shopping was limited and the pool area was way to crowded!
San Juan, Puerto Rico
If you go to the Rain Forest don' t book through the cruise line.

Parasailing was amazing, the people were friendly, and great shopping! Make sure you ride the water ferry for 7 dollars all day. you can go back and forth to the ship! WE did not want to leave the beach! This was our favorite port!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Taxis are expensive, book excursion through the boat!Great shopping!


Go to deck 5 and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is a hot tub and plenty of chairs! Outside by the pool s a hamburger place that was amazing. You do have to wait in lines, but they are worth it!
