Ship Facts: Carnival Breeze Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Breeze Deck Plans
Carnival Breeze Southern Caribbean

All in all it was a great cruise......beautiful ship....wonderful cabin stewards...great waiters....lots of fun....however these are the cons:

Food in the Blush Dining Room was not up to par. They tend to reuse the prior nights dinner with a different menu choice.

The steaks were the worst quality of meat....tough and difficult to chew. (filet mignon was excellent as well as the chateaubriand)....but the sirloin and flat iron steak (which is on the everyday menu) were very poor quality. I eat my meat rare....and others had well done...we all had the same consensus...they were like shoe leather, extremely tough.

There are not enough areas with ample chairs to sun....unless you are out on the deck by 8:30-9:00, there are no lounge chairs left.

There was also a foul odor of fish in many areas of the ship.

The shows were not times properly timed to coincide with dinners....and were extremely short. They were wonderful but were over too fast....they were only about 1/2 hour....not as they were on prior Carnival cruises.

Lastly the need to change one port in particular...Dominica.

When you pull into port there is machinery....baseball fields....dirt.....and LOTS of security.

You HAVE to purchase and excursion to go to the beaches....clearly not safe.

It's a dirty, filthy area in port.....NOT picturesque...it's a dump.

I stayed on ship because it looked very frightening....as I said....you need to be escorted by Carnival to see what may be the nicer part of the island....but how many excursions can you purchase?

They really should remove this port of call and go somewhere else..

I've always sailed with Carnival (7 cruises)....but I don't know if I'd use them again.
