The only piece of advice I would give someone sailing is forget about the "professional" pictures, they are WAY overpriced. Take your own and enjoy the memories!!
Book on another cruise line. Had way better experience on Royal Caribbean.
Enjoy and relax Carnival has got you covered !!! Favorite part of Galveston is that old downtown right next to where the ships are it’s nice to have lunch there at the port and watch the ships come in and out
Carnival Breeze is great. I’ll choose the Breeze over the smaller ships out of Galveston.
load the carnival app before you arrive on the ship and activate it as soon as you board and this will be very helpful. It is free to use. It gives you a daily hour by hour schedule of events which you can select as favorites and you will get reminders ahead of time. You will also be able to manage your funds account on it.
Relax and enjoy the experience
Get ready to relax, have fun and enjoy the most amazing experience of your life. Download the app and use it to see and decide what activities/shows/entertainment you want to enjoy. It can be a little overwhelming with so much going on; but look for what you want to do and set alarms on your phone to remind you where to be at any given time.
This was our first cruise but we heard from other people that it was nicer than some other Carnival ships so we will try to get this one next time!
Do not sail in hurricane season
get the drink card.. youll save your mortgage.
Do not pack so many clothes do not need them
I don't know.
If you need to "transfer" from the ship to the airport, schedule a later flight and take your time getting off the ship. Uber and Lyft rates go down considerably after 10:30/11:00am. Also, they are cheaper than many other forms of transportation...carnival transfers and Galveston Express.
If you have specific food allergies/intolerance's, and your waiter does not seem to understand what you are talking about, request wait staff that understand. Do not try to suffer through! Trust me, it's not fun!
If you are a hot natured person...bring a small fan. It was cool in our stateroom but there was absolutely no airflow.
Relax and enjoy the ride.
Take wire hangers you get from your dry cleaner, they never provide enough hangers. If you are an overpacker like me, take plastic over the door hangers for extra hanging space. Pack socks, underclothes, other item that dont wrinkle in jumbo ziplock bags. Makes for easy packing before and after the cruise, easy storage to save space and can use the large bags for wet, dirty clothes. Bring large clips to hold towels on chairs they are also handy to dry your swimsuits if you have a balcony or to hang in shower.
If you don't like smoking stay away from the casino. It was awful and you could smell the smoke Le outside of the casino. They needfilers in there.
The Breeze is a great ship and we really enjoyed our cruise.
