This was our 15th cruise and our 2nd worst! The worst one was Holland America after Carnival bought it! Our cabin was fine as were our waiters and that's about it. The food (except for Guys and the Steakhouse) was bordering on awful. ... Read more

We chose to go on the Breeze because it was the new ship and in the same class as the Carnival Magic we had sailed on before. Reservations went great and even upgraded just a couple of days before we left port. Upon arrival to the ship it ... Read more

My husband and I have been on a lot of different Carnival ships - from small to large, old to new. However, this was our first time cruising out of Galveston. Ship: The Breeze itself is a nice ship. We stayed in a spa balcony cabin ... Read more

We stayed in Houston for a few days (Springhill Suites – Hobby airport). Had a rental car and returned it the night before the cruise. We used the Carnival transfer shuttle to get to the cruise port in Galveston – about an ... Read more

Let me start with the good parts of the ship and cruise. First, the staff – they were outstanding! From our cabin steward to the waitresses and waiters in the dining rooms, to the bartenders in the various clubs, to the guest ... Read more

This was our fifth cruise and one of the worst ones! It started off with a very unorganized and chaotic embarkation. As for the cruise itself, the food was not up to par (I cannot stand the change to the American table as there isn't a lot ... Read more

This is my 25th cruise and 2nd time on the Breeze. I didn't have a great experience on the last Carnival cruise so I was really hoping for a smooth sailing. We arrived at 12:30pm without a designated time since we are Platinum level. ... Read more

We are done with Carnival. Don't stay in any of the rooms on the first floor. We were in 1212. Waves hit the side of the ship creating a loud noise, hard to get any sleep. The mattress was old and lumpy. The bottom less bubbles program for ... Read more

This was a family cruise over our fall break. Our last cruise was on the Carnival Magic, the so named "Ebola" cruise. We are 54/49/12/11/7. Embarkation was a cake walk. Our check in time was 10:30, we spent the night before ... Read more

This was our very first cruise but we traveled with seven other family members that have cruised before. I wasn't sure I'd like the whole cruise experience but I loved every minute of it. Already planning our next adventure. We traveled ... Read more

The Galveston boarding process for us went smoothly. It was not congested as I thought it would be and the lines moved fast and quickly, which means there was enough security staff to scan luggage and get you on board. I was impressed ... Read more

We had a wonderful trip the Carnival Breeze. This is my 2nd time on this ship, but I still have so many things that I wanted to try but didn't get a chance to. The service was top notch on this ship. I loved my wait staff in the Blush ... Read more

I chose this cruise for my wife and I so we could decompress after a very long year. We moved from our home in Southern California to North Texas just over a year ago and it has been a lot of work to get ready, move and get settled. It ... Read more

This was my 11th cruise all on Carnival. I booked this cruise last September while on the Freedom. I choose a Aft Balcony, cabin 7466. For me, this was a huge mistake. While the views were outstanding and the cabin seemed larger than ... Read more

The last I I went on a cruise, was about 30 years ago. Needless to say, things have changed a bit. Carnival has the staggered embarkation with the Breeze and I guess it went pretty good. There are no real signs tell you where to go, ... Read more

I live in Houston, so it was just a short drive to the port. Waiting in the heat wasn't fun, but the outdoor waiting area is covered with ceiling fans, and the line moved pretty quickly. I used the handicap line once inside, and the ... Read more

We sailed on Carnival Breeze September 11, 2016. This time we selected an inside stateroom as we booked late and choices were few. This was my 12th cruise and my second aboard the Breeze. We dined at the Sea Side Brunch on each sea day. ... Read more

We cruised the Magic last year, so when the Breeze traded out the Magic the choice was clear! the ship is identical as the ships are sister's, but the Breeze is 2 years newer than the Magic. Well the nice thing about traveling on the same ... Read more

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
