Review summary

For my 1st cruise I couldn't ask for more. I enjoyed every minutes. I was apprehensive about travelling on my own but WOW. I met wonderful people. The staffs made you feel special and Mike Pack (cruise director) keeps you pumping the entire time.

The embarkation process was very easy and smooth. I used the Carnival shuttle from the airport and we were greeted at the port by Carnival representative with a porter. She then directed us to the lines. Also we didn't have to stay in line to receive our sail and sign card which I presumed facilitated the process. Very great experience at embarkation.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I used mainly the main dinning room. The food was good. I would have preferred my food hotter but I didn't ask for it. I also had the opportunity to participate in The Chef Table experience and it was AMAZING. The Chef is an artist. I will try to participate again on another ship. I used the buffet twice for breakfast and the food was good.

Fahrenheit 555

5 out of 5

Fahrengeit 555 was FABULOUS and $35 is a bargain. The food was very good and my steak was cooked exactly the way I love it. Definitely will book a reservation to the Steakhouse again.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I had a very relaxed vacation. Enjoyed the pool and especially the Serenity deck. They were no children however we were very closed to the water park and coukd hear lots of screaming.

The live band at The Atrium was excellent. I did not participate at any shows. Also I totally like watching movies under the stars. That was totally awesome.

Children's Programs

I did not travel with children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff on the ship was ver accommodating to me. Many people complaints about guest services however my experience with them was very professional and friendly. I had an issue with my credit card after an excursion and the beautiful lady (sorry forgot to take her name down) was patient and help me get in touch with my bank. My room stewart Disna was excellent. My stateroom was clean and loved the towel animal every day. The staffs in the Blush dinning room was my highlight every night. Noemi, Sadurmanto and Alex made me feel so special. I was looking forward for dinner to see them more than for the food.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean and you could see the staffs everywhere cleaning and picking up after guests. As it was my 1st cruise I cannot critic on the layout. Not sure if they are ship where you could go from one end to another without going up and down. For example my room was on deck 2 at the back of the ship. Guess servie was on deck 3 front of the ship. I needed to go to deck 4 Mezzanine to reach the front and than back down to deck 3. However I loved that the restaurant were at the back. Very convenient for me 😀😀.

Cabin / Stateroom

I travelled by myself so I was very comfortable. I had morevtham enought storage. The bed was very comfortable and my stewart kept everything very neat and tidy. I have no complaints whatsoever about my stateroom.

Ship tip

Enjoy your cruise. There is so much to do and to keep you entertain. It is up to you do as much or as little as you like. For me it was my 1st cruise and I wanted to relax and I was able to acheive that. The Breeze is a beautiful ship and I loved every minutes.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

I arrive to this port only to embark and desembark. I did not have time to visit. It looks like a very beautiful port and definitely will come 1 day early to visit it.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
I had a day at the resort pass. It was 1 of my favorite thing to do during my vacation. The resort had a beach front and the pool was si clean. The staff treated me like a Queen. I will definitely go back to that resort to spend more time.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
Belize is such a beautiful country. For my excursion I did ziplining and visited Maya ruins. It was my 1st time ziplining and itvwas exhilarating even I got stuck on the 1st line probably due to my fear 😱. The rest of the time I had a guide with me 😊. The Maya ruins tour was beautiful and such an history. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
What save my excursion was the ziplining experience. This time I did 17 lines and didn't need assistance. Roatan is the best place to Zipline. I had a blast with my 2 monkeys Mike and Jenson. I was alone with my tour guide and he wasn't very talkative. But the country is beautiful and the people very charming.


4 out of 5
It was well organized for the amount of guests on the boat. There was a wait at customs which is to be expected.
