Review summary

Overall we had a wonderful time. We took my parents with us again, which they truly enjoyed this cruise the best so far. We have only been on 3. The problems I had was the amount of marijuana being smoked on ship. If that's what you like so be it. I smoke cigarettes but I dont smoke on my balcony or try to hide it. I noticed during the lido deck movie time the older teenage kids would go towards the back of ship, and within a few minutes the smell just hit ya. Then they would have to walk back by and their smell good spray couldn't cover the smell they just smoked. Lol. Which brings me to the lack of parents paying attention to their children, Including teenagers. Parents, your children are not going to be who they are around you when they get around friends and strangers. The cruise staff is not your babysitter 24 hours, your job as a parent does not stop because this is a family vacation and you dont want to be bother. This was the 1st time I took my daughter. She enjoyed it. I knew one day I would have a drink with my daughter sitting at a bar. That day came as she order her virgin daiquiri. She is 13. We sat in the casino a lot. On the 4th day while we were just walkng through a staff member told us she couldn't be in the casino. Within an hour we were back at the casino sitting at the bar having a drink together again. There is really no where other than the bars pub casino areas for a child to get drinks. So we would order and stay in there. Didnt want to have to leave a place and stand outside of it till we wanted another drink. We did enjoy it. This is the smoothest cruises I've been on. The late night deck movies were great. The ports were good. We did go swimming at one beach. The free one. We had a wonderful time. A couple of movie nights we didnt go, so we could enjoy the back pool to ourself. The beds felt hard but I slept good. Food was great, drinks were delicious. Kiss me on the lips is my favorite drink. We did hide a few ducks, still dont know if they were found. Oh and my husband enjoyed it as well, he came too. He is in a few of the pictures. I would have loved to buy more pictures but I need to save up for about 2 years to be able to afford what cost them $10 give or take will cost me $1000. And the ones trying to give that pitch about buying pictures. Be careful with what they say, how they say it, and make sure to have them repeat. Repeat. Repeat. They seemed to be trying to confuse people to get more money out of them for less value of a plan. Or just take screen shots of all the pictures you take on the Hub app. Yeah it has carnival watermarks but they still look good. Lol. The Breeze was an awesome ship. Love it!!! I'm ready to go on another one.

Bed was a litter hard, but that's the best sleep I've had in a long time

Ship tip

Enjoy , visit the back pool. Dont think that gas bubble coming out is going to be silent when you are in an elevator with 8 plus people. It's not quiet. But it's the fastest I've ever seen 8 people trying to press buttons to open the door.

We had to get our tags the day before we get off the ship. We got tag 6. We were off the ship before 9am. The quickest I've ever gotten off a ship.
