Carnival Breeze July 2012

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

We had a 12 night cruise on the Carnival Breeze from July 12st to August 2nd 2012 and loved every minute of it !

On the whole, the ship was amazing and the cruise was amazing. Few negative points :

- pools far too small
- decks very crowded on sea days (which is why we got a premium vista balcony !). The problem is made worse by very inconsiderate people racing up at 7am and "reserving" 8 chairs for the rest of their family and hardly every using them. Carnival introduced a system where chairs could be reserved for maximum of 40 min else staff removed towels and personal gear to be collected later. Certainly helped a little but it wasn't enforced with any real consistency
- shows ok - mainly just singing and dancing. Shows on other cruise lines have been much better

Other than that - quality and design of ship was incredible. Service/staff were amazing. We had a fantastic room (Premium vista balcony) but even inside cabins (that the kids had :) were a More good size. Food was outstanding.

More specifically of the ship ..http://www.flickr.com/photos/brentharlow/sets/72157631046017882/

Will definitely be cruising Carnival again - quite keen to cruise the same boat once it heads over to the Carribean Less

Cabin review: Carnival Breeze 6501

Premium vista balcony was amazing - HUGE balcony (bigger than suites) and HUGE room with sofa plus additional chair and lots of space to walk around. Could have easily fit 6+ deck chairs on balcony. Will be very hard to cruise again on smaller balcony ! Very quiet at night time, away from main public decks

Port and Shore Excursions


Ship docks right in harbour so can be in the middle of the city 10 min after stepping off boat
