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.
Carnival was okay, not my first choice and I might consider going on this line again with lower expectations and hope to be pleasantly surprised. We are already looking for our next cruise so who knows what will happen!
We really enjoyed our cruise and would recommend it to anyone! The Caribbean is lovely, even in January! I was surprised that we could swim in the Caribbean Sea in January and stay warm! So nice to escape the cold Wisconsin winter for a little while!
I am very disappointed with the majority of events on this cruise. Our tour guide in Belize was the best on the Top 10 of Belize tour, and otherwise I didn’t enjoy my time because I was always waiting for a drink or waiting to be served and I remember the waiting and not the quality of the food and drink which is dumb.
Overall it was a great vacation. We enjoyed the spa (we got the pass), the water slides and splash area, as well as the overall music and atmosphere of the ship. There seemed to be lots of college age kids and young adults on this cruise which could be a function of timing (right before school starts after winter break) or the port of Galveston's location (there are several college campuses within 100 miles of the port). There is plenty to do throughout the day if you are adventurous and willing to get involved, but there is also lots of opportunity to enjoy the sound of the ocean and sunshine in peace and quiet if that is your cup of tea. The Breeze is a great ship and Carnival runs a good program.
IT WAS RAINY AND COLD FOR THE MAJORITY OF THIS CRUISE. THIS IS SOMETHING MOST EVERYONE WAS NOT EXPECTING. DESPITE THE WEATHER, WE MADE THE BEST OF IT. A DAY CRUISING IS BETTER THAN A DAY AT WORK, REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER. THE CREW WAS AMAZING AS ALWAYS. CRUISE DIRECTOR SCHWARTZ IS ONE OF THE BEST THAT WE'VE ENCOUNTERED. THANKS CARNIVAL, FOR MAKING ANOTHER GREAT VACATION POSSIBLE!
