We just arrived home from our 7th Carnival Cruise. We are a family of 3, (our daughter is 8 years old) What a ride! The ship is beautiful and easy to navigate. This is our second time on the Breeze and we found new places we missed the last time around. We really liked the iterary for this cruise, here is a rundown on our adventure:
*Parking: We drove from Illinois to Miami and parked at the port. I think next time we will leave our car at the hotel as the fee for the parking garage was $160.00 and some hotels will let you leave your car for free.
*Cabin: At the last minute I received a call from Carnival to upgrade from a balcony to a suite, so I did. The suite was spacious, had a larger balcony, walkin closet and spacious bathroom with a tub and dual sinks. The best part was the closet so we werent running into each other while we were trying to get ready and out the door. Well worth the extra $$. We also got express embarkation with the suite! NICE.
*Food: The food was good, but the service was a little slow in the main dining room. We didnt opt for any of the premium dining. We prefer to save the $$.
*Kids club: There were lots of activities at the kids club and our daughter made many new friends. She didn't spend a lot of time there and it is nice that you can easily drop off and pick up at your leisure and it is included in the price up untill 10 pm.
*Entertainment: As usual the shows were great, but this time they changed the schedule for the shows which I didnt like. Most of them started at 7:15 and 9:15 and we had early dinner (6pm). We could not make it out of the dining room in time to make the show so we went to the 9:15 show. That was pretty late for our 8 year old. The Hasbro game show is A LOT of fun, two of those were at 3:30 pm and it was nice to get out of the sun for a bit! There was a nice variety of musicals, juggler and comed
