Traveled As: Couple

We really appreciated the newness of the ship. The staff was mostly pleasant\, except for a male at both the excursions desk (totally ignored me\, another female stepped in to assist) and at guest services (attitude).
The watersports and amount of pools were nice. Also the sky gym (exercise with your own body weight) was pleasantly different.
The meals were average. Many restaurants were pay per entree.
Entertainment was average.
Rooms were comfortable. Irons not in room\, but half down the LONG hallway in a laundry room.
The spa was welcome but a little pricey.
Only free drinks were syrup tea (hot and cold)\, syrup lemonade\, water\, coffee. Sodas\, alcohol were for additional fee/charge.
COMEDY night was fabulous. We loved Percy Crews 2.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
NEED more staff at the pizza station (often just one person for making and serving) need higher quality and more consistency in the main dining room meals. need longer hours for the marketplace. many times people looking for food (between lunch and dinner) and only pizza available (long line\, or maybe burger). Minimal healthy option for vegetarian at that hour.

If comedy was the only real enjoyment. (may it be known the venue is small and the entrance line is LONG\, but worth the wait.) The games in the ocean plaza were so lame. The deck parties were mediocre but the staff was engaged.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
mostly helpful. although it seems some were burned out/tired. they are OVERworked. If you want to tip your room steward do so before turn down service on the last night. The cleaner for your room the next day (on checkout) will be a new crew.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
size was exercise in and of itself. length of 3 football fields. 4400 people.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
decor average. bed comfortable. sofa bed hard as the floor\, even with padding.

Pros: NEW ship\, nice ports

Cons: more money for everything

Recommends Carnival Breeze? Yes!
