8 Night Southern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 07, 2014
Ship: Carnival Breeze
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6411
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago


Carnival would not grant a price reduction or on-board credit when comparable category balcony cabins went on sale within 2 weeks of sail date for ½ of what I had paid. When I booked I was told that price reductions would be authorized for comparable category cabins. I guess someone lied to me. (No longer have an incentive to book ahead, or with Carnival.)

This is the first time receipts were not consistently given when using the sign & sail card. This made it very difficult to reconcile purchases against the TV or folio print-out. I’m still not sure if all the charges were legitimate, or if additional tips were added after I signed the slip.

I don’t ever recall seeing so many unsupervised kids and teens on a cruise. They were generally loud, disrespectful, and travelled in mobs. This is primarily a parenting issue but Carnival seems to tolerate this much more than other cruise lines.

Dining rooms were understaffed, especially at the early dinner seating.

The port call to the Dominican Republic was a complete waste. It was a genuine 3rd world slum, no matter what fancy Latin name you give it.

The slot machines were programmed to be VERY, VERY stingy.


The ship was well laid out and comfortable.
