Review summary

We had an amazing time and will be going on another cruise very soon.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Emabarkation was very fast and simple. Just make sure when you print your boarding passes they don't print front and back. If the do they can get you more, but it just takes a little longer.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We all ate so much on this cruise. The kids loved the ice cream... they ate it every time we passed the machine. We ate at Blush upper and had an amazing waiter staff. Jaun, Jose, and Toshee always made us feel like we were so important. They all would see us eating breakfast and would stop and speak. Jaun went out of his way to find my daughter Kellee a box of Lucky Charms when there wasn't any out. All three of them made sure our meals were wonderful and we got everything we wanted.

Cherry On Top

5 out of 5

My husband went into Cherry on Top to order me a birthday cake. Mel told him that orders were supposed to be made the day before. My husband said he understood, but Mel wouldn't let me be dissapointed. He called and got the chef to make me a birthday cake for that evening. It was amazing. If it wasn't for Mel it would have never happened. He told my husband that he wanted to make sure everything was perfect for me. We went by there after dinner and thanked him for everything he had done.

Guy's Burger Joint

Awesome burgers!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Schwartz and his crew are awesome. They made sure we always had a great time. The kids loved the ropes course. The kids didn't swim much because it was a little chilly, but they had a good time while they could swim.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We watched all the shows in the evening. The performers were great. You could tell they really loved what they were doing. We also really enjoyed they military appreciation. It was amazing for my 89 year old grandfather to be able to get on the stage and be recognized. Thanks Carnival Breeze for remembering the people that served our country.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The kids loved the activities they had for them to do. They even got to go on stage for the lip sinc battle. They thought that was really cool.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Keerthi, meet us before we ever got into our rooms. He was supper nice. He remembered our names all week and was always making sure everything was just like we wanted it. Again, our wait staff Jaun, Jose, and Toshee were great. Mel at Cherry on Too made sure my birthday was amazing.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
They boat always seemed to be spotless. The crew is super obsessed with making sure it was spotless. The boats layout was nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was very spacious. Our kids loved the cove balcony.

Ship tip

Make sure Schwartz is going to be the cruise director. He made sure to make everyone feel welcomed and made sure everyone was having a good time.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
Galveston really has it going on during embarkation and debarkation. They have it all under control.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Nice port. We just kind of walked around and did our own thing. We are at Sloppy Joes, we went to the aquarium, ad we did some shopping. We loved all the chickens just roaming all over the place. Just make sure to get some chocolate dipped Key West Lime Pie before you get back on the boat... so yummy!!

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Ok, so Nassau is beautiful, but their pier isn't that great. There was about 5 other cruise ships docked there and so we had to walk quite a long way to the end of the pier. I would suggest that you have an excursion booked to make sure you get to see this beautiful place. We didn't so we didn't see anything but the shops. It really didn't impress me and I was ready to get back on the boat. Our friend that went with us went and swam with sea lions and had a blast. Also, the Bohemian government makes she shops close at 5:30 so if you are going shopping you have to make sure to do that before they close. People in Naussau weren't that friendly either.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5
The people in Freeport are super nice. It was my daughters 11th birthday while we were there. They wanted to make sure she was having an amazing day. We did the all inclusive beach day. It was pretty chilly that morning and we were really scared we were making the wrong decision. We decided to go anyway, and I'm so glad we did. The beach was beautiful. The food was amazing, and the people were just great. Our girls had a great time getting in the water and playing in the sand.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Super easy. They have this process really figured out and made it super quick and easy.
