Ship Facts: Carnival Breeze Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Breeze Deck Plans
Carnival Breeze Lived Up to Expectations
Just got off Carnival's newest ship the Breeze. Overall we had a great time and will try to be objective.

Embarkation/Debarkation - we flew into FLL and took SAS van service to Miami pier for $15 per person well worth it. Got to terminal at 11 and boarded about 12:15, not too bad. Leaving wad easy as you could self assist off as early as 7:30 AM or as late as 10 PM.

Cabin - Spa Inside room 11217, Deck 11 perfect functional room located just below gym and spa, and just above Lido deck for buffets, water parks, Serenity deck, etc. Love the new decorating theme and of course our cabin steward was wonderful.

Gym/Spa - standard quality Carnival gym but men did not like the men's locker room from old ships as now it is way too small, few showers, no benches, and only a sauna. Huge disappointment. But that was tempered by the beautiful European Spa that came with our level of room, it was truly relaxing with aroma therapy steam rooms and pools. The Spa was worth the additional charge in our opinion.

Excursions - we zip lined in Antigua, loved it. Visited The Baths in Virgin Gorda Tortola, went caving at the beach, was truly beautiful. Just shopped in St. Thomas and Bahamas, was fun.

Overall, we loved the Breeze, we never really felt crowded or rushed, will travel with Carnival again.

Dining - the main dining room service was spotty, slow, and food was lukewarm at best. But the pay extra restaurants, Italian, Sushi, and Steakhouse were all worth their up charges. The new venues at the buffet were excellent especially Guy's mouth watering Burgers with potato sticks, the taco burrito for breakfast and lunch, thin crust pizza was surprisingly good, and the Tandoor Indian was delicious. Look for the BBQ place on deck 5 for lunch another hidden gem.

Pools/Hot Tubs - only 2 pools on the whole ship for 4200 passengers, way not enough and no pool on the Serenity deck. Hot tubs were plentiful though they were a lifesaver. The water park and slides were awesome fun and was being used by as many adults as children.

Casino/Entertainment - fun slot and blackjack tournaments, new electronic roulette was fun, shows are now 30 minutes long and while Divas and Brits were very good the Latin show needed some work. The Comedy club was a disappointment as its too small and you have to queue up on line just to get in. They need to move the comedy club back to the main showroom.
