Disappointed with Carnival's flagship: Carnival Breeze Cruise Review by JMF2100
Overall Member Rating
Disappointed with Carnival's flagship
Destination: Western Caribbean
On the upside, the ship's entertainment staff was fabulous. Evening deck parties were full of energy and participation with great music. The staff was out in full force participating and getting the crowd's energy worked up. The steakhouse was extremely well done and worth the added cost. Wait staff was attentive at the proper level and the food was exceptional. Less
Cabin review: 9477
Overall, the cabin was very well done. The decor of blues / greens had a fresh, relaxing feel. Gone is the over-bearing coral decor where everything was that color. The aft balcony provides a unique view and is very relaxing listening to the ship's wake. Cabin attendants were wonderful and friendly, providing ice and other requests promptly. The only issue with the cabin was the shower drain. After 3 minutes of showering, you were standing in 2" of water wondering if it was going to over-flow.
Port and Shore Excursions
Jose Cuervo Tequila Tasting and Discover Mexico
Cozumel is an over-developed tourist trap. You are not forced to walk through a duty free shop constructed on half the pier in order to get back to the ship. The Jose Cuervo tequila experience was not that great. Over half of the tour was devoted to a lecture of Mexican history. This was not disclosed in the tour description.
Great shopping within walking distance from the ship's tender point and wonderful beaches.
Purchased the Hop on Hop off shuttle pass for $19, thinking it would be a great option to explore the island at our leisure. This was not the case. The shuttles were extremely cramped with very little leg room. The shuttle takes you quite a few miles to a tourist shopping area which is very lacking in stores. It can take up to an hour to "hop on" another bus to get you back towards the ship. The "hop on/off" points lack any signage and driver's are very vague as to where you should go to pick up the next bus.
Not impressed with Carnival
