Ship Facts: Carnival Breeze Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Breeze Deck Plans
Best ship we've been on

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on the Carnival Breeze. We were upgraded to an Ocean Suite cabin, (7363) and were very happy with our stateroom. It wasn't huge, but was far bigger than any cabin we've had on a dozen or so cruises.  The balcony was bigger, but not impressively so. From the door to the rail was still only about 4 1/2 feet, but it was long enough for 2 deck chairs, a small table, and a lounge chair.  The bathroom was a very nice size, but we really didn't use the whirlpool tub much. The twin sinks also used up space that we would rather have had on the deck. The walk-in closet was great. We used it as a 'his and hers' type set up. The sitting area with the sofa, extra chair and coffee table was nice, but since we didn't entertain guests at all, didn't do us much good. I think our biggest complaint was the position of the TV. It was positioned so that one person on the bed could not see the entire screen. If you sat on the sofa, then the TV was 90 degrees to your left so that wasn't comfortable either. Now, we didn't watch TV much, but used it to check out dinner menus and keep an eye on our account. So no matter what the TV was used for, it was NOT in a great place.

Another big plus for the cabin was location. It was extremely quiet, and very close to the midship elevators. It did overlook the BBQ area, but that was only open on sea days and never at night so it didn't add any noise to our cabin.

We filled out a review with Carnival and told them that the quality of food and food service has been on a steady decline since we've been cruising. The food on this cruise was average, at best. The variety was very limited and the food service extremely slow in the main dining room.

We were also a bit disappointed in the musical shows. The talent of the singers and dancers also seems to be on the decline compared to some of our past cruises. The Breeze, being a newer ship, has some real state of the art technology. The problem with the technology is that they relied too much on the 'gee whiz' stuff and we thought it took away from the show. For example, "The Brits" is a show we had seen before, but on the Breeze there was so much cartoony technology additions that we didn't really enjoy the show as much as on the Freedom.
