Review summary

I am so impressed with Carnival Cruise Line. I have been aboard the Carnival Breeze for the past 13 days which started as a 7 day cruise. Because of hurricane Harvey our trip was rerouted and we ended visiting our sites backwards. Going around Harvey was a scary night; the boat was rocking and the wind was blowing but we made it safely around and continued on our voyage. Upon going to Cozumel we were confronted with the fact that Hurricane Harvey was headed for our homes and where my daughter was with her father. They hunkered down and prepared for the best or worst. After the water came up so far he took collette and had a boat come out and rescue them from our home. All of this put a huge strain on myself and so many other passengers who were dealing with the same exact issue. The cruise line did everything in the power to make us at ease, opening wifi for all passengers to phone home, and were very accommodating. They felt it best to keep us ok Cozumel overnight and leave for galveston the next day allowing the storm time to pass. On our way back to galveston we were then informed that galveston was still being hit by heavy rains and storms and so our route was again rerouted for New Orleans, allowing passengers to disembark if they chose. I wanted to but had to way to get to Houston as buses, planes and cars were not able to enter the city. We spent 4 days there and I am now heading home. We are supposed to port in galveston tomorrow morning and be reunited with our families and see the damage now for the first time. For a first cruise, first time out of the country and first time ever doing a girls trip away from my baby, and with all the added stress I can honestly say that carnival is a wonderful way to cruise and the only company I plan to cruise with ever. Thank y'all for making us your number one priority in safety and for also making this voyage what will always be unforgettable but pleasant as well.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was tight but clean, our steward Tony was great, very attentive. He always kept our room and our needs a top priority. He was very respectful of space and on my very first night on the ship after having to excuse myself from dinner due to being sick and go to bed, he found out and made every effort to help. That was very appreciative.

Ship tip

Don't be afraid or shy to join in on the activities. The trip flys by and by the end your finally getting comfortable it's over so jump all in and enjoy yourself. Life and your cruise are too short not to!!! ;o)
