Carnival Breeze - France, Italy, Croatia - 6/27/12 - 7/9/12
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
My daughter and I enjoyed our cruise, however we found ourselves continually comparing this ship to our favorite, which was INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS in the Royal Carribbean fleet. We expected this ship would be comparable due to it being new. We found that was not the case, so we were slightly disappointed.
However, there is nothing wrong with the ship and we found it adequate to have a pleasant trip. The cons of the ship were the common areas seemed small. It did not have the expansive open spaces we expected. Some of the food, while prepared fresh at the Pizza Pirate and the Mongolian Wok created long lines and lengthy delays to obtain. The cabin temperature never seemed to change despite continually adjusting it. We couldn't seem to get it cool enough at times.
The shopping seemed less abundant, but perhaps it was just not spread out as far. The beach pool was not nearly big enough to accomodate the size of the ship with respect to the number of More passengers. The Ocean Plaza on deck 5 was where a lot of activities, such as trivia were held and on sea days the doors opening on each side created crosswinds through the plaza. We were very disappointed in the 5D theater - it was extremely small, a fee applied and the show offerings were very limited. The pros of the ship were the crew, the production shows, the seaside theater (albeit old movies were shown), Fat Jimmy's C-side BBQ only available on sea days. Sail and sign kiosks made obtaining information easier than waiting in long guest services lines. You could also change large bills there. The Hasbro game shows were fun. The casino was nice size, with nice game choices. Overall, it was a nice trip, just nothing spectacular. Less

Cabin review: 4J7208 Interior with Picture Window (obstructed views)
Nice spacious accessible cabin. The location was nice for walking out onto the front of the ship. The bathroom was big and there was no step up, which was nice. The beds were adequate, but a little firm. It appears some space was given up in terms of storage for the accessible cabin size. It was difficult finding place for our belongings.Read All Interior with Picture Window (obstructed views) (4J) Reviews >>
