Chose this cruise because Galveston is close to home. Will never go on the BREEZE again, the ship needs to be refurbished and cleaned. The hallways always smelled like sewer. The 5th floor reeked of cigarette smoke this is where the ... Read more

It was a rather hellacious embarkation due to late arrival of the Breeze that Sunday and no port personnel imparting information as to which boarding times should be in which line, etc. But it got done and we departed Galveston on time. ... Read more

Embarkation was a mess and took forever to get threw. The service for dining was very slow, the food was not all that good and not a wide verity. It seems that the crew was slacking in the fun energy they usually put out. One of the ... Read more

The day we was to leave on our cruise. We had to wait in line outside the terminal for over 3 hours. No where to sit, the elderly, the handicapped all waiting outside in the sun. Our ship was supposed to leave at 4, instead it was at 6. ... Read more

Overall: We had a very enjoyable time but were a bit disappointed in the days at sea and certain aspects of the cruise in general compared to past cruises. I don't wish to be negative as our experience was mostly on the positive side and ... Read more

This was our first time sailing with Carnival and we were more than pleasantly surprised. Everything about this ship, the itinerary, the crew, the food, the rooms were outstanding. I read several CC reviews about the Carnival Breeze ... Read more

Amenities offered on the ship was the main reason why we picked this ship. We were very excited for this trip, it had been 13 years since we sailed with Carnival, but have cruised over 9 other times on RCCL and NCL in between. Our ... Read more

Fantastic ship, Crew, and itinerary. We have been to Cozumel before, but wanted to go to Progreso to see more Mayan ruins and this itinerary was the only one that would accomplish that. We also needed to go out of Galveston as our son, ... Read more

This was our first cruise, celebrating our 25th anniversary. I did a lot of research and found good things and bad things. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our cruise. We chose a cabin with a balcony and it was great. Mali ... Read more

I went on this cruise because one of my cousin's daughters was getting married. We had about 15 in our group, and it was, overall a fun first cruise for me. The ship was large enough to "avoid" (I hate to use that word) family ... Read more

It was an excellent cruise. Entertainment was great. Don't miss 80's show and Beach Party show. Hasbro show was fine, too...a little kids-ish. Food everywhere on the ship was quite good (in dining room, food quality is good but portions ... Read more

The food sucked, nothing special or extravagant at all. The shipped was so chopped up- you had to go up and down different elevators to get to certain floors then walk across the ship then back up or down- it was very annoying. The cabin ... Read more

This was our 3rd time with Carnival and 5th time overall cruising. The Breeze is one of the newest ships and has a few amenities that are nice but it really feels like not much has changed over the years. The food at the buffets are ... Read more

First, the good - both the food and the hospitality were the best we have had on any cruise on which we have ever been. That being said, there were more things broken/out of service/unavailable on this cruise than any on which we have ... Read more

This is my fourth cruise with Carnival and my family's second cruise. We recently cruised on the Conquest, which is a sister ship of the Liberty. The layout was the same with the decor being a bit different. I will say upfront that ... Read more

We have cruised most frequently on other cruise lines, and, frankly, perhaps unfairly looked down on Carnival. Therefore, our expectations were low, but we decided to give it a try because Galveston is much closer and less expensive than ... Read more
