Review summary

I highly recommend this cruise! We would definitely do this same cruise again!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
The process of going through security and getting on the ship was so easy. We parked in a lot and had a shuttle transport use the port. The took care of our luggage from there. We were an hour early to the port, and they let us get on the ship early. Because we were early, our room want quite ready, but that was no big deal. Since we had no luggage with us we were able to explore the ship, grab food, and start relaxing immediately! Easiest experience I've ever had boarding a ship, and I've been on about 5 cruises now.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Guy's burger joint and barbecue restaurant were delicious! The breakfast buffet had quite a few great choices for breakfast. Most everything we tried in the dining room was delicious. The wok restaurant was delicious, and the build your own omelet bar was good. The Blueiguana Mexican restaurant was great. The lunch and dinner buffet were somewhat lacking, but had tasty choices. The bar drinks were all amazing! Bottom line, you will leave happy and 7-10 pounds heavier after trying all the great food on the Carnival Breeze!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There is more than enough fun, exciting things to do for people of any age while on the Carnival Breeze. The staff on the Breeze go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great time! My husband and I loved the slides! Unfortunately, the two pools are very small for the number of people on the ship, but there are other ways to cool off like the slides and splash area.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
My husband and I loved all of the shows we attended! All of the comedians were so funny that we both left in tears. The performances were beautifully choreographed and performed. We attended a Motown show, part of a country music show, the Lip Sync Battle show was great. Two cruisers tried out at the beginning of the cruise, and the did the performance the last day. The Clue show was a blast as we as the Hasbro Game Show. There was so much to see and do every evening.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff are amazing! They take the time to get to know each person. They call you by name. They go out of their way to make sure you have the best, most relaxing, carefree vacation.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
There are people constantly clean every nook and cranny of the ship constantly. While at port, there are people painting the ship and clean off rust. The ship was very clean!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The bed was very comfortable. Our room was small, but all we needed for the two of us. The shower's water pressure was amazing. I've stayed at nice hotels that don't have as good of a shower as our stateroom did. Our room was an interior room, so while we were in it, we never knew the time of day because we had no window. It didn't bother us much because we could turn on the television and see the outside deck of the ship! Overall, the room was comfortable and satisfactory.

Ship tip

Have a blast! There is so much fun stuff to do, but don't feel like you have to do everything. That can be a little exhausting. Take time to relax! I do recommend the Cheers package if you enjoy having some drinks while relaxing by the pool or in the evening. I'm not a heavy drinker, but it more than paid for itself while we were on our cruise. Also, a great excursion is the Home Sweet Home excursion at the Grand Turk port! It was well worth the price!

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Small port that really has their process and procedures down. They get people through security and customs quickly! It is also in a pretty cool area!

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

We did go on an excursion here, but I highly recommend doing one otherwise there are some shops in this small area and an overcrowded pool. We got off of the ship for a little over an hour and got back on to enjoy the pool since most peopl were out enjoying the port. It was nice to be on a less crowded ship. Overall the port area is pretty limited, so I'd recommend an excursion or spend time on the less crowded ship unless of course you like shopping for duty and tax free liquor, shirts, handmade crafts, etc.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Beautiful island! I definitely recommend an excursion to see Drake's seat. We went to Magen's Bay, which was beautiful. On the same excursion, we took a sky lift up to the top of one of the mountains where you got a great view, amazing drinks, and there was shopping.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Such an amazing sight! We got off the ship and headed for the fort. It cost $7 to get in, but it was well worth the views inside this fort! Absolutely one of my favorite ports!

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
One word...gorgeous! The beaches are beautiful! This is one port where you don't need to go on an excursion. There is a beautiful beach right off of the port, but if you do go on an excursion I strongly recommend the Home Sweet Home excursion! My husband and I had a blast! They are very welcoming and take great care of you. It is an all you can eat and drink. The food is amazing and the drinks were great! Crusher the bartender is great! The workers do everything to make sure you have a fun, relaxing time. Great experience!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Easiest experience! We were able to disembark early, and the entire process took less than an hour to get off the ship and get to our car at the lot.
