Loved this cruise, really. Great cabin, great food, entertainment was talented, great cruise director. One out of two shore excursions were excellent, the other just so so. Started with a lot of rain - five inches in Miami so leaving the port was a challenge to get there and then it was very hard on the Lido deck or any deck to eat or whatever, but we managed, it was not their fault, people, just an extraordinary rain storm. The Guy Burger and Burrito stands are ravingly great and yummy. Glad they were convinced to keep them open on port days. We came back on two ports because it was better than the local fare in Antigua and Nassau. The trip was special our anniversary so we celebrated at the Fahrenheit 555, WOW! A glass of champagne and special dessert were gratis, the rest was $35 per person plus bar service plus tip. But it was worth it!. Regular any time dinner service was mostly great. Pasta dishes were just okay, so the hint is to ask your waiter to recommend a good choice. 90 percent of the time we were impressed. Also did room service on excursion days and it was prompt with good, hot strong coffee and croissants or whatever. The best part of Carnival Breeze are the rooms - bigger than other cruise lines. Been on a few - Norwegian and Royal Carib. Their room attendants never fail to be excellent. Entertainment was good for dancing, music and comedy. Also try breakfast in the Sapphire for nice start for the day, and it is very good. Their Ovation Theater has innovative technology in their sets  - artistic, but even the range of the audience will appreciate the Latin Nights, Motor City, or the Brits all from a very talented group of eight dancers and singers. The cruise director Matt should have his own tv show one of the better cruise directors ever! Only glitch was disembarkation on the second day of daylight savings - many late and confused guests made this very tedious. Sorry to hear that this ship is going to Galveston. Guess all the competition in Miami with the Quantum and others are kicking this new ship out. Can we please try not to hog all the deck chairs, people? I saw very nice attendants trying to put stickers on the chairs that were not being used, but really.....

Loved the El Yunique Rain Forrest Shore Excursion, want to come back again
