This review uses experience on Royal Caribbean as a high water mark reference point; though the Breeze offers good value, it does not measure up to the quality of service, ship design, décor, and staff professionalism experienced on ... Read more

I've sailed Disney, Royal Carribean, Norwegian and now Carnival. My biggest concern with Carnival is food safety. The first item I ordered to eat, there was a hair in my food. This happens and isn't a big deal to me, and they were ... Read more

This is a lovely ship, probably the largest we have sailed on in our 30 plus years of cruising. We always go in the spring time and the spring breakers have never bothered us, until this year. And it wasn't the college students you ... Read more

I am extremely disappointed in the experience I had with Carnival Cruise Lines on the Breeze just a week ago. We initially checked in at the airport, paid for a round trip transfer to the ship and were on our way. When we get to the boat, ... Read more

We have been on several cruises with Carnival and I must admit that sometimes bigger is not better as this ship is the largest so far. This is the first time we did not get a suite and we sure missed it. We had originally booked a group ... Read more

Our cabin was beautiful, plenty of room for 2 adults and 1 "child" (he is 14, but 6'2"!) We enjoyed the sports deck and the multitude of things to do each day. The food, as always, was excellent. I have never had a ... Read more

I loved the Breeze and my family had a wonderful week. I thought Mike Pack (cruise director) brought a great, positive energy to the ship. We loved the food options and were overall very happy with quality of food on ship. We are a ... Read more

We have been on many a Carnival cruise and this was our best one yet! The ship is new and has the most thrills of any Carnival ship (not counting Vista soon to be sailing). I'm going to break it down into the sections that are important ... Read more

This was my first cruise so my expectations were neutral. I have stayed at many all inclusive resorts and our family decided that we'd tryout a cruise instead. The good thing about the ship is that the dining was good. However, that was ... Read more

This was our 20th cruise on CCL. The Breeze was definately my favorite ship. I loved the layout & use of deck space. We sailed March 6th. We were happy to hear there were only 580 children under 18 on board. The food was good. We ... Read more

We just did 8 nights on the Carnival Breeze and we were a little worried. Embarking was a little long and a pain but once we were on it was great. Cabin was 11253 and fantastic just a little smaller than our mini suite on NCL Epic. But it ... Read more

After reading a few of the negative reviews I can see that many people who take this cruise are amateur travelers and don't do their homework before taking a trip. I flew into Miami from Chicago and had no trouble with the efficiency of ... Read more
