Inaugural Cruise of Breeze

Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

We sailed on the inaugural cruise of the Breeze June 3rd, 2012. While I am a fan of Carnival, I cannot give this cruise very high marks.. We found the food in the main dining anything but good. The buffet was not much better. The ship was soiled within hours of its embarkation and remained that way for much of the entire cruise... While we really like the new look for Carnival, the colors seemed maybe too light for the kind of traffic a ship of this size it getting. In short, the carpet was dirty appearing the entire time even though the staff was continually trying to clean it.

We also missed our last port at Marseilles due to Carnival not being able to dock in Livorno a few days earlier, which threw the remainder of our cruise schedule in limbo.. In essence, Carnival ported at Livorno the next day so we ended up with an extra sea day and no Marseilles port.

Several people ended up with something resembling a cold with upper respiratory infections, and some said More it was a type of flu that many including the staff were all suffering.

In short, it was not one of our better cruises. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Breeze 8472

Cabin 8472 in an extended aft cabin on the Verandah deck. The cabin was a bit larger than most traditional side balcony cabins, even though Carnival will report it is the standardized 185 square feet. Of course the balcony is larger as well... and we enjoyed the cabin overall.
