Review for Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Traveled as a Family with older children. 24, 21, 18, and 15 I would not recommend families with small children. There are not enough activities for younger children. There were too many people and not enough staff in the right places. There was little organization in the embarking and disembarking at ports and activities for the number of people on the ship. The crew did not appear happy to ...

I chose this cruise for the value it provided at the time. It was a decent price for all that was supposed to be included. However, once boarding, that value vanished. My party included my wife (32) and daughter (2) and I (31). All three of us hated it. First, our room was little more than a closet with a Queen Sized King bed which was supposed to be enough space four four people they ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

First time cruiser. Traveled with sister and adult married cousins. All in our 40's and 50's. Not at all impressed. The rooms seemed old. Odd smell coming from tolet upon arrival. There was a large amount of kids and 20 something year olds on ship. Lots of very drunk people everywhere. Felt very much like like a Walmart with an all you can drink bar. Too many kids in the hot tub to enjoy. ...

My husband and I had cruised once before on carnival. We wanted to try cruising with our boys 17 and 13 to see if they liked it with the goal of doing a European cruise next summer. This cruise I booked prior to covid and have rebooked and rescheduled many times. The food and service is exceeded expectations. We ate breakfast and dinner in the dining room all but a couple of times. There were ...

I was invited on this cruise by family it was my 1st time & I loved it. I would hear people say how small ship was but to me was huge!! The check in process was very smooth, the food was delicious, the best coffee I've ever had. The entertainment was so great. I had so much fun!! Every employee I came in contact with couldn't do enough to make sure I had everything I needed. The energy that ...

The beginning of the planning was soon to be misrepresented by customer service when we called to complete the reservation. The lady on the phone promised to keep our family rooms very close, since we have first time customers from outside the US. When we arrived we noticed that our rooms were on separate floors and on separate ends of the ship. (Major issue) Go back the Carnival of the old with ...

The positives first, the staff are hard working and friendly. Disembarkment went smooth. The burgers and Deli food were ok. So disappointed in evening dinning, did not have one good meal. It use to be nice dinning. We had 8:15 dinner and everything that was suppose to be hot was cold and everything that should be cold was hot. My table of 8 concluded that the food was prepared at same time ...

Don't do it! Pay the extra money for a better cruise line.

My family wanted a quick getaway from the Tampa port. We had high hopes but were disappointed in so many ways. Firstly, this cruise line seems to attract a certain clientele that is loud, rude and I'm going to say it...uncivilized. I would equate it to the Walmart of the high seas! Aside from my obvious snobbishness our room and balcony were disgusting. The comforter had hair on it and the ...

Absolutely the worst experience of my life. My wife, daughter and I check in at the desk ready for our cruise only to find out they do not accept Real ID like it says on their website. No one from their organization told me. Make sure you bring a Birth Certificate or Passport. That's all you can bring. My wife and daughter went on the cruise. First, it was overcrowded. There were 4300 passengers ...

Things seem pretty much back to normal onboard, except for the signs to wear masks which very few people did. Nice ship and the food at Guy's burgers and Pig and Anchor was really good. Dining room is fine but nothing incredible. The anytime dining process works really well on the app. We got different tables/servers every time which was fine, except if you're old school and like to bond with ...
