Carnival Breeze: Carnival Breeze Cruise Review by cruiserfromcal
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
As for the shopping, do not waste money on the $25, coupon book touted by the so-called professional shopper. He is a professional Salesman! You will be pushed to purchase diamonds at DI throughout the cruise and when I received a quote on a ring I burst out laughing because it is no bargain. You can do much better on the jewelry shopping channels, overstock, and Ebay. Do not More waste time on the free gifts since most are not free and require purchase. Others are similar to what you find in a dollar store. If you do buy jewelry beware of the receipt that you sign as they will give you one price then I realized upon checking my credit card statement that I was overcharged $100, only to be told via email that it was my mistake. Avoid Effy and Milano Jewelers in St. Maartin, or have them write the quote on a piece of paper and check your receipt carefully. Prices are at minimum tripled to give the indication of a discount.
Go see the islands and forget about chasing shopping deals. You can find reasonable tours at the ports that are much better than what is offered on the ship, especially in Puerto Rico. Overall great price for the cruise if it were not for the food issue.
Arrived at the port around 11am for embarkation since I had a night flight and had to wait for 2 hrs prior to boarding the ship. This process needs to be vastly improved.
Lots of kids that run up and down hallways that sound like galloping horses. Parents are to blame for this! Less
Great ship for first time crui...
Wonderful Family Vacation
2nd time around
