Review summary

1st cruise, last cruise. When we booked this, we specifically asked about smoking and was told it was a very restricted area! Well that was B.S. She only wanted her commission, didn't care about her customers obviously.

Chaos and fog pretty much sums it up. Line control was non-existent. Fog in Galveston delayed Embarkation by hours. Not sure how older people could stand in line for hours.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
When is All Inclusive not Inclusive?! When you travel on Carnival Breeze. Not included on first day; only one drink allowed; mixed drinks are made with 1/2 shots; bartenders would starve in a economy where they were not guaranteed gratuity; max number of drinks per day;

Blush Dining Room

3 out of 5

Blush dining staff was great; food was good. Head waiter Bajon was Outstanding.

Winner's Luck Bar

LOUD, Cigarette stench on Deck 5 Mid. Do they really think the stench doesn't carry all over the boat?

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Theatre productions were good. Bingo payouts are small. NOISE levels of Lido deck, Atrium and other locations is very difficult to escape.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Service staff on early morning shift are professional assassins. We lost sleep every single day at 2am and 4am from noise on Lido deck. Our room was directly below Lido Market area. Banging chairs, scraping across the deck. Anything they could do to make our stay miserable!

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Rooms were clean. Hallways and bulkhead doorways were filthy. Curtains were filthy and probably contributing to virus.

Cabin / Stateroom

DON'T stay in this room, you can hear the night crew playing upstairs. Nothing but misery.

Ship tip

Smoking everywhere. GROSS. Buffet lines with kids picking at food, no sneeze guards to stop a 4 ft rug rat from hacking on food. Customer Service desk doesn't care what you are experiencing and the accounting practice is HORRIBLE.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

1 out of 5
Never again! Fog delays. No shuttle from local hotels. Trolley line doesn't even run close.

Cozumel, Mexico

Pres Trump was accurate. Need I say more? What the heck happened to these people, all they want is your money at an exorbitant charge for anything.

Belize City, Belize

DITTO! No snorkeling on this location. Water is too dirty, you must spend several hundred to go out for an hour and back. RIGHT>>>

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

1 out of 5
Finally, a singular bright spot in the trip. We could snorkel from beach, get beers with out extremely loud music blasting from bars.

Galveston FOG! Did anybody mention you can't stay in your suite and take a nap? They throw you out or your room and let you fend for yourself on the ship. All of you, luggage and all. Five hours delayed disembarkation. How many people had to pay for additional airline tickets!!
