DO NOT SAIL OUT OF MIAMI PORT

Sail Date: October 10, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Carnival Breeze is an awesome ship, however, the embarkation process in Miami is nothing less than disgraceful.  If you are traveling with anyone who has a disability or a small child in a stroller expect to be treated like dirt!!!  The so-called "guest reps" are RUDE beyond imagination and not very knowledgeable about procedure.  We were sent to 5  areas before we FINALLY got to board.  We didn't even have the opportunity to get an embark group picture due to the employees that did not have a clue what they were doing.  With a passenger on oxygen ( which got low during all this mess) and a screaming 4 year old and a wet baby who was hungry while we were shuffled around again and again - it pretty much RUINED our first day and part of the second.  Everyone was stressed, mad, irritated and had a big headache.  GET IT TOGETHER MIAMI - your employees are awful!!!!  We were even yelled at by an "old man" calling himself a "guest rep" to MOVE IT!!!!!!  We basically told him to GO TO------!  NEVER again will we sail out of Miami and we will think twice before even booking Carnival again.  By the way - getting a shuttle after the cruise was a night-mare too  - just saying!!!  Good luck if you sail out of Miami.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was awesome Nice size nice balcony
Embarkation and Disembarkation
HORRIBLE embark and fair disembark
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Entertainment
shows were fair - not as good as we had hoped for with a 4.0 ship
Service and Staff
service on the ship was great - service at the terminal was disgusting!!!
Food and Dining
Miami, Florida
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
be prepared to pay $7.00 each for a water taxi to the "free" beach. DON'T hold the monkeys the street people offer a "free" picture with - they are TRAINED pick-pockets.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
San Juan, Puerto Rico
we took the $10 person bus ride to see the area as you do not have much time in port to really do anything.
Grand Turk Island
Take the semi-sub - it was fantastic. The public beach right off the ship is total rocks!

Tip

Balcony was on Lido deck not far from the awesome food!!!! we always pick this deck. Do not get near the launderette as there is much activity towards the end of the cruise with passengers waiting and talking in the hall by the washer and dryers. Laundry is located by cabin 10264
