Ship Facts: Carnival Breeze Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Breeze Deck Plans
THE BREEZE LET US DOWN.
We went on the Easter Caribbean cruise leaving out of Miami Feb 2nd for 8 nights. I will make this simple and list the pro's and con's after embarkation. Which was a Breeze! We walked in, went thru security in a flash. Went to a holding area for about 15 minutes then on the ship. Had our luggage by 3:00.

Pro's

LOVED Guys burger joint! The burger and the workers there were AWESOME!

Loved the Blue Iguana where they make the BEST breakfast and lunch wraps.

The Rum Bar was So Yummy and fun workers.

The ship decor is very pretty and inviting.

The Piano Bar with Ron was the highlight of the ship! He is so personable, Hilarious and talented!

Had to visit the Infirmary. The DR was WONDERFUL!!!!

the Italian Restaurant has FREE lunch and it was good! They don't advertise it.

Bought the drink package. Was well worth it with both alcohol and non-alcohol drinks and they DO NOT water the drinks down. They are VERY STRONG!!

We had the BEST room steward!! He was so sweet and always happy to chat with us.

Con's

Our door would not lock. Took 2 days of calls to get it fixed.

Our sink clogged 2 times.

The beds are so HARD!! We both had neck/back issues all week they were that bad! One night in a hotel and we were good as new!

Security was called to 2 rooms(one across and one next to us for MAJOR Disputes in the middle of the night) took them a half hour to get there!!

There is NO Adult Pool. ALL THREE are kid friendly! Seriously if they have the slides area and main pool why is the back pool NOT adults only??

Serenity is right above the kiddie area....hence the kid noise all day.

If you are not up by 6:30 a.m. you wont get a chair anywhere but on deck 5 where the extra chairs are.

We had a balcony. The noise from the hot tubs and restaurants/ bars was non stop!! Not to mention the smoke from the BBQ on sea days.

For the ENTIRE ship there is 2 towel stations. 1 by main pool with one person working and one in serenity.

Being on Deck 9 we had so much noise all night long from the buffet area above us.

Dinning room (BLUSH) was pretty and the singer great. The food was awful and the service was worse. You got offered bread and water ONCE!! We ordered wine and it would show up with dessert. We went 4 times in hopes of it getting better and never learned our servers names or even chatted with them. I was tables of 9-12 in rows or round tables and like a fast serve cafeteria.

The Lobby bar was no only so packed after 5 that you could not get a seat but also impossible to get a drink.

The Mezzanine was so packed every night that it was unbearable. It was horrible!!

VERY small casino that you had to walk thru to get to other end of ship.

The gym was half the size of the gyms I have been to on much smaller ships.

Stood in line for 35 min to get BBQ and finally left with out food.

VERY VERY few Bar servers walking around the pool/serenity areas during the day. Just got up and got our own drinks.

Spoke with so many up happy people on this ship and workers that talked about not liking the big ship and the people were more rude. The workers are over worked and if they are not happy no one is happy!

We are happy on most any cruise but Carnival has failed on this ship. It is 20% larger than the Freedom of the Seas RCCL and MORE people and less workers. This left us with a bad taste for carnival and wont be sailing with them anytime soon.

As for Ports...Tortola and Antigua were AMAZING!! WE have been to ST Thomas before and Nassau had 5 ships in port. It was as packed as the Breeze!

We like to have a fun and relaxing vacation and this was far from it. Do your own research but I would not recommend the Breeze to any one I know!

Carnival is trying to get more people onto the ships and it is causing the lack of enjoyment, service ect!
