Carnival Breeze Cruise Review by Tazangels: Quite Breezy!
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
Being an avid Carnival cruiser I was disappointed with the quality and attention given to common sense details on the Breeze. Beginning with the fact that when you're in port and have to return to the ship by 2:30pm there is only Guy's Burgers and Pizza available. The lines at the locations become so long that people stop being humble as they are tired and hungry from rushing through land tours. At times the hostess at the Blush restaurant seemed overworked and tired to the point they didn't even want to smile at the customers. The Waterworks is a fabulous idea; however, not having proper Carnival employees monitoring small children in the mini racers slides became a daunting task to oversee. With twin 5 year olds I needed to ensure other children weren't pushing or kicking them because the two times an employee did appear at the mini slide they were on the outside unable to facilitate the process of who goes first. When I asked the supervisor why they didn't have an employee assigned More
to the mini slide the same way they have it for the large slides her response was we can't. I love Carnival and already booked my next cruise with them, but will continue with the Conquest class where there seems to be more of a smooth set of logistics. Maybe the Breeze needs to re-visit their logistics to make common sense corrections. The evening shows with eight dancers is the worst of it's kind. They need to return to their original shows with the orchestra. Edge seemed to be the only magician hired lately as I have seen him on the Liberty, Triumph, and now Breeze. The only entertainment show worth attending was the Hasbro show. My positive review goes to Camp carnival staff which was truly amazing. Less

Excellent cabin, great views. The extra bathroom includes a tub which is helpful if traveling with family; however, it doesn't have an extra toilet simply a tub.
Port and Shore Excursions
I've travelled to Cozumel many times but this time rates have skyrocketed. Either book a tour with the ship or rent a car but be aware that entrance fees for their best beaches can run from $20-30 per person in U.S. Dollars. A cab to take you to the north part of the island will cost approx. $120.00. Not much to do but shop within walking distance. Definitely planning a spa day on the ship and skipping this port next year!
We took a cab to the club beach and it was amazing. Entrance to the beach with free wi-FI was $2.00 for adults and children under 12 free. The cab was round trip $24.00 as 5 and under ride free. The sand was like sugar and chair and umbrella rentals were $14.00 per set. Excellent port.
