Ship Facts: Carnival Breeze Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Breeze Deck Plans
Fantastic First Cruise! Stateroom #1401

We just returned from our first cruise ever on Carnival Breeze, which went to St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, and Grand Turk. This was such an amazing vacation! We could have stayed another 8 days! The ship was very clean and organized. Embarking in Miami was smooth. Two days at sea allowed us to get acquainted with the ship. There was plenty to do onboard from the casino, to the comedy club, to nightclubs, to live music, to the water park with 2 waterslides and a splash zone, to the 2 outdoor pools and numerous hot tubs. Jimmy's BBQ was available for lunch on sea days only, which was very tasty. Our head waitress, Toshi, in the Sapphire dining room was fabulous! She's so friendly and we looked forward to her excellent service every night! The food onboard was great! We had so many choices. Breakfast was always great with many selections to choose from. The omlets were made to order. Lunch was also great with Guys burgers, burritos, Mongolian, or the buffet. Dinner was amazing every night and the service was excellent. Our cruise director, Matt Mitcham was excellent! He always kept us laughing and was so energetic. Just an all around nice guy! The entire crew onboard went 'overboard' on their service. (pun intended!) Beware when you disembark on St. Kitts! You will be approached by locals with their monkeys! They're so cute, but when you take pictures of them, you will owe money to the owners! (they don't tell you until after you have taken pictures! 3 pics for $10!) But it is a beautiful place. Hiring a taxi is the best way to tour the island. St. Maarten/St. Martin is by far the most beautiful place ever! The people are extremely friendly. We did not book an excursion through Carnival for this island. Instead, we got into a taxi and toured the entire island for a lot less money and a much greater tour than you would get if you were on a big bus. In San Juan, we opted for the Carnival excursion tour of the Bacardi factory, since we were only in port from 7am til 2pm. and wanted to be guaranteed to see at least some of the island. It was a nice tour, but over priced and didn't allow for enough time to visit the town for shopping or sightseeing. Grand Turk was exquisite! We stayed on the beach at the port and visited Margaritaville and swam in the ocean nearly all day, which is something I don't like to do since you get sticky from the salt water, but this was an exception. The water was refreshing all day and no sticky feeling! Both sides of this port are Carnival owned so they provide free chairs on the beach. The only complaint I have is that the announcements are hard to hear over the loudspeakers and the cruise line doesn't tell you anything about where you are, what you are looking at, or where you're going. So it's up to you to do your homework ahead of time or watch the TV station in your cabin to let you know the course you're on. All in all, this was a fantastic first cruise!
