The Carnival Breeze cruise director, Matt, was a great host and creative (not annoying or sleep walking like several others - e.g. woohooo!). The crew was great in the dining areas and around the cabins... very friendly and extremely helpful. All 6 in our party thought the food on this cruise was the best of any of our previous 4 crusise. Pizza especially good (wish we could find a thin crust pizza restaurant around our town that was even close). Cabin 7064 was well kept, nice and quiet. Lots of fun for all. This was a great cruise and I would do it again.
My only negative comment is, the La Romana Dominican Republic port was a waste of time and effort because there was nothing within easy walking distance of the ship's port and the cab fare for 6 @ $15per person was gouging. However, it was interesting to pull up at the dock and see all 3 baseball fields in use at 8 am. However, I recommend avoiding cruises that dock at La Romana Dominican Republic unless the price is crazy low.

Recommend trying a side balcony. Our rear balcony seemed to get numerous whiffs of the smoke from the ships stack even in (or maybe because of) high winds.
