May 2014 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western
I was hesitant to try a Carnival cruise but was encouraged by a family member to try this newer ship, The Breeze. I'm glad I did. Although the new ship designs do not cater to the types of lounges and entertainment that an older adult is looking for, we were able to get past that and have a very good time. The service was impeccable, and our cabin (a cove balcony cabin on Deck 2) was roomy, clean and well maintained. The food was good, and the service in the dining room was excellent (after we asked to be reseated from a very undesirable location). I would recommend this ship to families as there are a lot of activities. However, there were still plenty of quiet places to curl up in the sun with a good book. Overall, a very nice cruise at a good value!
