Great Ship but Cloud 9 Spa not worth the price

This was our 13th cruise on Carnival, and our first on the Carnival Breeze.  This is the newest ship and it was very nice.  You can really see the redesign and it looks fantastic.  They have toned down the glitter and neon to a much more professional and clean color scheme.  Its very impressive!

The hallways on deck 5 are great with lots of dining options.   The casino feels bigger and the Cruise Director is the best we have ever seen.  The main DJ is also the best Carnival has.  The room staff and cocktail waiters on the Lido and deck 5 are excellent.

Here are the negatives with this ship.

1. We purchased the Cloud 9 Spa suite because of the additional benefits, it is not work the extra price.  In fact we think the actual suite was smaller than the suites on deck 7.

2. The additional bathroom amenities are just like any other hotel and they do not replenish them.

3.While the 3 thermal spas sound great they don't work very well, and there is no place to hang your robe, we tried it one day and was bored (and we like big spas).  Because they have created these large thermal spa areas they have reduced the main spa changing areas and dressing rooms.  There is only a dry sauna in the men's area and no wet sauna.  the locker room is very small and the workout room is also very small. appears that carnival has cut back on staff, they need more cleaning help, for example the casino was dirty and ashtrays full everywhere, need more staff.


Overall great ship but don't do the Cloud 9 spa your money.

Good suite, but the Cloud 9 suite appears to be smaller than the normal suite. it was not worth the extra money to get the cloud 9.


deck 10 is the best deck for a balcony.
