Ship Facts: Carnival Breeze Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Breeze Deck Plans
EXPECTED SO MUCH MORE!

For a new ship, the BREEZE didn’t meet our expectations as far as the decoration and the general areas of the ship. For hosting thousands of cruisers, the areas were way below what the ‘social’ sizing should be, compared to other ships we have been on. They should have had less "walls" and created larger spaces to accommodate the larger crowds. The pool area was too small, as was the Lobby. So unluxurious! You expect a lot of “flare” when you cruise. This is our second Christmas Cruise and last year’s cruise ship made us feel the Christmas spirit everywhere: Gingerbread houses and Gingerbread men galore, buzzing decorations, Holiday music throughout…

but let’s go for the positive: the food was good [not great], the service staff was friendly but not exceptional and scarce. Exceptional was the Administrative and Naval staff. ALL friendly, polite and elegant. The Cabins were okay, the Cabin staff was friendly but not going out of their way to be ‘aware’ of details: having an up-scaled Veranda, our room was left undone if we left late but they never checked to see the [please pick-up] sign left on the door. The [Cocina del Capitano] Italian restaurant didn’t do it for us, neither the Sushi Bar ('warm' sushi that was suppose to be cold). The Buffet was fairly good (although the cleaning-up service was very, very deficient in the dining area) but the Indian Food Station was great, as was the Wok Station. The kid’s slides are very good, as was the Kid’s Club, so [at least] go for-the-kids and you will have a good time. Of the Ports-of-Call: La Romana and Curacao were the best. Would not sail the Breeze again. Deficient.
