While looking for cruises around our birthdays (my 75th) we found one that left on my wife's birthday and on my birthday. Carnival was the one. Left from Port Canaveral was the easiest embarkation we were on board in 15 minutes (priority boarding) went to lunch and checked suite out. Everything was ready. Rm 11221 spa suite. Large balcony , walk in closet , large bathroom. And access to spa . Main dining room -Sapphire was great longest wait 10 minutes on my time dining. Went on excursions at all ports and booked thru Carnival . Great guides and interesting info on country. Some good deals on larimar jewelry in Dom. Republic. Our Room Steward Sabina was almost telepathic first night asked for ice and got it in 10 minutes the next night we called again she said it was in the room already - it was and she checked to make sure. Towel animals were great. Only negative was long lines for some of the food venues.Disembarkation was chaotic used our priority status to get off in 20 minutes.Sure helped . Was a great cruise and not our first one. Looking forward to next one. Did see a lot of young children that were not being watched by parents. Surprised that they weren't more cautious even on a CLOSED environment As a retired Police Officer I felt that they needed closer supervision. We live only an hour from Port Canaveral.and go to the Cape for launches -can see them on clear days from our front yard. Did not go to see any entertainment preferred to watch new movies on tv and occasionally room service which if you choose correctly was included in cruise cost. Great snacks. Asked for cheese plates to go from supper and never refused. Wait staff knew what we had for beverages after first night ,called us by our names and had beverages waiting at table. Embarrassed both of us on birthdays by singing Happy Birthday along with other diners at dinner. Read Less

Every year a small group of us do a reunion around Thanksgiving time, usually on Carnival out of Port Canaveral which is the closest to my home (75 miles) I am Diamond status on Carnival with 49 cruises with them and 135 lifetime on all lines.Check in for luggage and Citizenship and sign and sail went quickly. the parking garage was less the 400 feet from the pier.. weather was perfect. no rough seas. all three of us elderly gentlemen , ages 85, 71 and 67 walk with canes. and had no problems with hallway obstructions. I was offered the use of wheelchair service to board and debark and was very happy with the offer. also, to go ashore in one port I had to borrow a wheelchair which one of my friends pushed for me and only had to give a $50 refundable deposit for its use and safe return. the local tender folks in Belize were also very helpful with the wheelchair as well. The dinners were all excellent, especially the night in Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse. The Chocolate buffet on the last day at sea was plentiful and tasty.. we did not go to the repeater parties. we did not buy any shore excursions. we didn't partake of any of the entertainment options as we felt they were too amplified for our taste and, honestly, we've all been "over-entertained" having grown up in NYC and Los Angeles.. Carnival corp has obviously made a deal with their cable company as there was only the Turner Networks package of tv shows and news on the in room tv. the selection of free movies was ok. they repeated the same 6 or 7 all week in rotation. the wi-fi package was only $119 for a whole week and one of us purchased it due to health issues and staying in touch with their concerned family. it worked well 98% of the time but response times on the in-house computer screens was notoriously slow like in the old 64K Dial up days.

This my 7th Carnival Cruise Just decide to write this review of my recent cruise on the Carnival Breeze out of Galveston Texas. We had the deluxe Ocean view suite mid ship 1St floor. Overall the cruise was fun, But The hallway and our room had a funky smell for the several hours, We were traveling with several members from our church and some family members from Fort Worth Texas and were all on the same hallway with our room all in a row, They also had problems with the smell. After a few Hour, we all went nose blind to the smell, by the end of the 2nd day. This the 1st trip on any of the Carnival ships that We experience really loud noise a night. We purchase the mid-price wifi service and was really disappointed It was slow. The guest services and photo employee were really busy helping cruiser installing the Carnival hub app on their cell phones a tablet, some cruiser never got connected and was given a refund. Install the Carnival hub app before you leave home to avoid the long lines at the guest service desk. Coming from central Texas I am spoiled by traditional Texas-style barbeque I was not impressed with Guy’s barbeque. The side, however, was great his Mac cheese was the bomb and the baked beans were off the chain, Slaw was just plain good. Guy’s burger was great as usual. The dining room staff was really good. Our room steward was OK. The 4x4 jeep excursion at Montego bay was good.I would not recommed this excustion to any with knee or back problems the 4x4 ride is rough.I would recommed that you gone on the 1:00 excursion to the hidden water falls when leveing the falls area late you get to see a great sun set. Plaining my next crusie on the Carnival Vista. Read Less

Carnival Breeze Cruise 01/14-21/2018 (Noted That the Breeze failed its CDC/saturation inspection in December, but after reviewing the report, we saw that most of the failures were technicalities, not really health risk problems. It seems it might indicate the staff is overworked or understaffed) Sunday 1/14 Shawn dropped me and our luggage at the cruise terminal and a porter took the 2 large bags and my walker. Shawn drove the car to EZ cruise parking then walked back to meet me (only 4 blocks). As a Platinum cruiser, also in a wheelchair, we got priority boarding. Got on at 12:30 (an hour late due to previous cruise’s debarkation delay). Helpful friendly staff and the wheelchair was quickly thru and up the ramp to the ship. Check in was extremely simple with the just checking our boarding passes then putting us thru the metal detector and out carry-ons thru the x-ray machine. New procedure on the Sail and Sign Cards which function as ID, Charge Card and Cabin key – you go straight on to cabin with cards waiting for us outside the cabin. I unpacked from our carry-ons while Shawn went to check on the deck 5 hot tubs. Starboard Promenade hot tubs were open so we put on our suits and headed down despite the chilly weather. We enjoyed the nice, warm bubbly tub until 2:30, then tried to get lunch but ALL restaurants closed early (2:50). We went to our assigned Muster Station, Upper Blush Restaurant on Deck 4, for the safety briefing and at 3:15 they announced food service WOULD BE CLOSING which irritated me because everything was already closed. The Safety Briefing was held in areas where people could sit which was a great improvement over standing out on the decks as they used to do (ad still do on other ships, according to other passengers) After the Safety briefing, they let us gimps out first but the elevators were crazy busy. Finally got to deck 5 and went to Red Frog Pub for pub grub – but there was only one server and he was overwhelmed (and possibly indifferent). Went to Lido after long elevator wait. Long lines for all food. Finally went to deli - Reuben and tuna sandwiches were yummy as were the curly fries and potato salad. Love the tasteful decor of this ship but miss the comfy couches usually found along the Promenade on other Carnival ships we’ve sailed. Back to cabin to unpack - walker finally delivered. Internet plan for one activated meaning only one of us could be online at a time. The Internet is 1Mbit/sec with a huge ping of about 1.5 seconds (very poor response). We purchased the “Value Plan” ($60) before the cruise (at a small discount) – it is supposed to be for all basic internet use which doesn’t involve streaming videos, Skype or other massive data use, but this seems slow. Some apps would timeout and fail instead of just being slow. Already had the Carnival Hub app – it includes lots of useful info like maps, what’s happening, menus, etc. We also paid for texting with other cabin mates for $5 each. Went to 3-forward atrium for a Cruiser Special rum drink and to listen to Kudos Strings - 3 violinists- excellent!! Lots of Beatles songs and song from movies. Weird sewer smell down near the elevators was yucky. Late dinner in Blush upper got our own 4 top! Servers Retno and Winaya both from Indonesia. I had corn chowder, poppers, flat iron steak and creamed spinach. Shawn had Cesar, fresh tomato soup, salmon and baked potato. The soups were hot and delicious esp. the chowder. The bread basket was varied: fresh French, rye and a cranberry walnut roll. The Caesar is good but strongly fishy. The steak was a small portion but perfect for me - cooked medium rare and served with a delish peppercorn sauce, small baked potato (perfectly cooked and great!) and 2 pieces of broccoli. Very small but good portion of creamed spinach. The salmon was fine, served with baked potato, carrots, and broccoli Caramelized phyllo for dessert was superb! I am glad they have reduced the portion sizes a bit – I like to order and try several of the numerous offerings and with smaller portions, I can enjoy them more. Back to the room for an early night. The bed was extremely comfortable!! Note: Schwartz, the cruise director, was a lively and popular character, beloved by kids and adults alike. 1/15 Monday at sea S up early to walk laps in the Promenade – did 8. Walking track around the outside of deck 5 is wonderful. Walking laps is a fun way to start the morning, and to watch the sun rise. Each lap is .387 miles The Hub app includes sunrise/set times and but not ship positions I used the slow Value internet. S took me for a lap on the Prom- windy on the pier side and 2 narrow points near the bow where the wheelchair didn’t fit. Sea day brunch at Blush started at 8:30 but they seated us early – yay! Had a coupon for a brunch drink - Breeze’s Bloody Marie’s are bloody awesome! And they do bread VERY well - the croissant was great. Had fresh squeezed orange juice (another good reason to go to Blush for brunch). Shared the fruit plate (pretty and tasty). S got pasta pappardelle “Principe di Napoli”- loved it. Delicate sauce with wide ribbon noodles, bits of ripe tomatoes and fried mozzarella. I had an omelet, cheddar grits and bacon. The omelet had spinach onions mushrooms and cheddar - 2 eggs, perfect size for my meal. Grits were creamy and tasty. Bacon was ok. Went for a tour. Spa and serenity deck were ok but $40 to have to climb stairs to the Thalassotherapy pool seems excessive. Serenity Deck has cool cubbies, chairs, hammocks and 2 hot tubs all for 21+-year-olds. Had to take Spa elevator up to 15 Serenity Deck, only stairs otherwise and no exit on 14 or 12 without stairs. The Waterworks looks fun for kids (and adults) but climbing is required. Went to Lido to cross back to the sports area but learned there is only stair access to 12 aft for the Ropes Course and mini-golf :-( so people in wheelchairs or limited mobility are apparently not welcome on that deck. Also noticed only high-top tables at the sushi restaurant making it hard for gimps like me. Loved that there are lounges as well as chairs on all the decks as well as some benches. Went to Red Frog Pub for lunch - after waiting a while, the server came by and took order for a drink but said food wouldn’t be available until 11:30 (despite all postings saying lunch 11am-midnight). Tried the Jamaican Sunrise (Skye vodka, peach Schnapps, red passion fruit, orange and cranberry juice) - very tasty! We waited until 11:40 but the server disappeared so we gave up. They were clearly understaffed. We did not return. Went to Lido and waited for Tandoor to open at noon. YUM!! Murgh Salan (chicken and chiles in peanut sauce) and beef kabob were my faves while Shawn loved the fish and the pea and tofu Paneer. The naan was great (warm and crispy) and most all the salads were interesting and tasty! One negative note: they had what looked like roasted ears of corn, but they were actually boiled & seared to look like they were grilled. Relaxed on the rear balcony for the afternoon then sat on deck 5 to see some of the Elegant Night outfits. Back to the cabin and got ready for the elegant night. Had a plate of chocolates and strawberries plus a form asking if we needed anything - asked for 2 more pillows and a bathrobe (got them when we returned from dinner), plus we let them know we only needed once-a-day room servicing – no turn-down needed. More people at Blush tonight. Shared our table with Kim and Sherry from OK. S had fried oysters (loved them), Cesar salad, wild mushroom soup (wonderful) and root veggies in a pie crust which was good but dry. I had the soup (excellent) and spaghetti carbonara which was great, with the hot Creme Brûlée for dessert - yum. Our tablemates were first-time cruisers and Kim was quite vocal about his disappointments with the cruise (many complaints) but finally seemed to realize he was being a downer and started reminiscing about his life in Austin in the 80’s. Back to cabin to divest our fancy duds. Also received a throw as a platinum gift. Really appreciated the extra pillows. Tuesday 1/16 Awakened by room service at 605 Got tray then Shawn headed out for laps - did 8. I fiddled with comp and had hot tea and toast - note: even Carnival can’t make gluten-free bread taste good. Shawn returned and I put on a swimsuit under a dress and we went to Blush at 8:10 even though they were scheduled to open at 8:30 - they opened doors at 0811 - this is a very nice departure from every other place opening late or closing early! Seated at the same table as yesterday so same servers: Natali, and Joseph We got orange juice (very diff from on Lido), iced tea, and fruit plate to share. S got pasta again (server remembered) and I ordered eggs Benedict with extra hollandaise. Nat asked if we wanted a Bloody Mary again and we agreed. It was delish and the lady who made it came by to make sure we liked it - said the secret was her magic she added! We appreciate that touch. S lived his pasta again. They brought my eggs B with 2 extra servings of sauce and it was wonderful, especially with the little serving of home fries. The small servings make sense and I appreciate them - it’s easier and better to order more if you’re still hungry than to waste food if there’s too much! Ate breakfast and went to the aft starboard Jacuzzi on the promenade. It was too sunny and had people in it, so we went to the port side Jacuzzi where it was windy but empty. The tub temperature was a little lower than the first day so we hovered over the hot jets for a half hour. Tried going back to the starboard tub, but it was no warmer so we headed to the room. Changed then headed to the excursion desk to ask about wheelchairs on the Cayman Crystal Caves Trip. They said probably wouldn’t work so they refunded the full amount. BTW passengers can’t get from aft to midship on deck 3 so plan accordingly! Up to Lido for frozen yogurt and ocean views. We were going to try the pizza but no slices were out and no one was around (despite the pizza place supposedly being open 24hrs) Wandered a bit and checked email. Waited for noon Sushi opening but they were open when we got there! Very nice, helpful server let us order to go so we didn’t have to use the high top tables. Order a Bento Box for me and Spicy Tuna roll for Shawn. (Not a place to go if you’re in a hurry) A lovely young woman brought our order and everything we needed to the table where we sat outside the Red Frog Pub. It’s worth noting that the server at RFP saw and ignored us before we ever got our food. The staff at Bonsai Sushi, on the other hand, were observant, helpful and plentiful! The Bento came with Miso soup (delish), salad with ginger dressing (nice), 6. Pc California roll with real crab, avocado, cucumber and fish eggs sprinkles, as well as 3 pc Sashimi (shrimp, tuna, and salmon) which I gave to S. Shawn had an 8 pc Spicy Tuna roll which was excellent - obviously and meticulously made by a pro! Went up to get tea and see if Tandoor had different entries - they did, so we share a piece of naan and some Peas and Fenugreek (Methi Matar Malai). Then back to the cabin. Trying to use the internet during the day is an adventure in frustration - SLOW!!! Not worth what you pay but... slightly better than having no access. The trick appears to be using it at 4 am. Since S didn’t like anything on the dinner menu, we went to Lido buffet to eat. Good shrimp and breading and the chicken Milanese were great. Afterward, we made our way to the Breeze Atrium 3 to hear Kudos Strings again - fun! 1/17 Wednesday Jamaica Up at 5:30 to get internet to work and prep for Jamaica! Room service arrived at 6 AM as requested. Actually, the food delivered was substantially different than yesterday. Despite being almost the same order, things changed. Yesterday, I got four slices of toast and two tubs of cream cheese as well as two bags of tea for the hot tea. The only difference in the order was that yesterday I ordered gluten-free bread – which was awful. Today I ordered wheat toast. I received one slice of toast, one tub of cream cheese, and one teabag though the order was for two people. Slightly disappointing. On the plus side, the Internet works well at 6 AM. S off to walk laps on Deck 5. Packed donation for Jamaican school and organized cabin for carpet cleaning (about which they notified us) Rain started so S came back from deck laps and we hit breakfast on Lido. Not many folks and no lines. Basic breakfast fare although the raisin French toast was nice as was the sausage gravy. I missed as the wonderful salsa which was available at breakfast a couple of years ago (on Liberty I think) Watched as we motored into Montego Bay. Gangplank on 0 Forward - a little hard in a wheelchair so we went to the Breeze Atrium on 3 to wait. At 930 we went to the elevators where a helpful crewman called the special elevator to deck 0 for us. S pushed me off the boat (in a good way) and onto the terminal where we were directed to our tour zone. Waited until 10 then out to a small bus with 23 passengers, Driver Seymour and guide Michelle Drove thru MoBay with running commentary. Saw markets, tons of yams, fruits, veggies. Saw cannons only ever fired by accident at Brit ship by Brit soldiers. Stopped at oldest church, Anglican or Episcopal. Bell tower is very loud when the bells ring as S found out personally. Looks like the church had not changed much at all relative to its colonial beginning, with the exception of the addition of steel-drum band equipment. Drove into the countryside on bad roads toward Kingston and stopped at Mt Olive Basic School. Kids aged 3-5. The children lined up on the stairs of the school and sang songs and spoke poetry to us. Then the tourists sat with them and took pictures. The teacher brought two over to meet me in the wheelchair and was followed by many more, so we took lots of pictures of gorgeous children being sweet. Toured the school; teaching English is a clear priority. Shawn tried to give one boy an item—big mistake. Almost started a riot, which the teacher quickly resolved by taking the item away. We gave a bag of school supplies to the teacher. The materials we provided (chalk, playdoh, and paper) seemed very appropriate, given the kids’ ages. We then drove up the road and most of the people took a walk in the rainforest up a hill to a local restaurant. I stayed on the bus because the hike was rough, but Seymour brought me a cup of coconut water to try, then he drove me up the hill to the gift shop area where peacocks roamed and a little burro posed. There was also an aviary with many different birds including a small eagle. Seymour brought me samples of all the fruits the rest of the tour group got: coconut with brown sugar, watermelon, papaya, and pineapple. Seymour and 2 men waited until our group got to the shop area then pushed me and my chair up a STEEP pathway to the restaurant area atop the hill. A little black cat was roaming but disappeared when the group started arriving. Once everyone arrived there, they offered samples of fruit punch and sugar cane, then let us go thru the buffet: sweet potato salad, yams, coleslaw, jerked chicken and pork, festival (like hush puppies), Ackee and salt fish (the national dish) and 2 homemade breads. All were delish! S loved the ackee n salt fish. Coconut drops were offered for sale $1: chopped coconut meat cooked with ginger and brown sugar - yummy! S had a Red Stripe lite beer and I had water. I was scared to let the man roll me down the ramp so I braved the stairs then rolled into the gift shop where I tried sips of rum drinks. Bought a Cuban cigar for SJ then back on the bus and eventually MoBay. Stopped at a “1/2 price gift shop” but we waited on the bus. Then back to the ship. Went to the cabin - carpets cleaned! Rested a bit then went to Red Frog on Lido for a drink. Got the Red Rum Treasure which was great! Looked for a seat with a view but it started raining so we drug a chair under the deck 12 overhang on deck 11 and enjoyed the view of Jamaica. Watched the rain and the view until the ship pulled out then had dinner on Lido- fish n chicken for Shawn and chicken and ribs for me. The desserts were lovely - some warm honey oatmeal cake and mousse for me, ice cream for S. Back to the cabin for a pain pill and to read. Fell asleep between 7-8 then went to bed at 9! Thursday 1/18 Grand Cayman Woke every 1-1.5 hours as the ship rocked and rolled. The wheelchair rolled itself across the cabin and the TV swung itself out. Got up around six and Sean tried to do laps around the deck. The driving rain at the bow drove him back to the cabin, wet and cold. Got to Cayman around seven, but the rocking and rolling continued. The rain stopped so Shawn went to do laps again while I tried to make the computer work – if Carnival wants to gift my platinum status with something for me, perhaps upgrading me to decent Internet would be the best! The wind around the bow was crazy strong—very difficult to walk against it. Captain made an announcement at about 730 that we could not safely tender into Grand Cayman, so the Breeze is headed to Cozumel early. After giving up on the internet, we went to Blush for breakfast - servers Joseph and Natali :-). J told Shawn, “No pasta today!” Shawn had smoked salmon and cream cheese on a bagel plus a yogurt and granola parfait. I ordered avocado toast with poached eggs and a broccoli cheddar scramble. Delicious. The Parfait had little yogurt and was too sweet (lots of honey, minimal yogurt) for S but I finished it for him. Back to cabin so Shawn can nap and I can get super frustrated by horrible internet. Sat on the balcony and enjoyed the ocean motion, then we went to 11 for the view and the breeze, but it was more a gale so we retreated to another spot to wait for lunch venues to open. At noon, we headed to 5 to try the Pig and Anchor but all the doors to the outside were blocked due to the wind. Finally got out an aft hatch and tried a little of everything offered at the P&A. I liked the pork butt and smoked beef and collard greens. S liked the chicken. The potato salad and Mac n cheese were ok but nothing special. Getting back indoors proved a challenge - we rounded the stern and went all the way forward to find an open hatch. Went back to Lido and made our way thru the hordes to check the kind of curry available at Tandoor. Finding a table was hard - lots of readers taking up dining spots - but finally parked at a bar table aft by the pool. Had some curry and naan then went for desert - S had ice cream and some key lime cheesecake while I had cheesecake and a mini carrot cake (which looked better than it tasted). Back to the cabin (1:30 pm and not yet cleaned) so I could warm up - lay on the balcony in the sun for a bit then went inside and got under the covers. Decided to go get pizza - asked for and received mushroom - it was good. The pizza was good, but minimalist in the extreme—very thin crust, very little sauce, and minimal toppings. That was good, though, in that it made the pizza very crispy and light, and likely minimized waste. Got a drink (Beachcomber) down at Red Frog mid ship on Lido. Heard announcements that tonight is Elegant night and saw that the comedy shows were canceled so have to rethink our plan for the night. Decided to eat buffet and not dress up - being stick-mud-people! Planned for Cozumel tomorrow. Drinking man, Sam from Missouri, with a Marvin the Martian tattoo on his calf joined us and talked for a bit after his wife pulled his chest hair. We went by the cabin to get a shirt for S and a coverup for me then down to the Breeze Atrium but no music- everyone taking portraits. We planted in the Piano Lounge to watch elegant outfits. At 6:10 we headed to Lido for dinner. I got a southwest chicken wrap from the deli while S got clam chowder, fish, and a Cesar salad. The amaretto cake was too chocolaty for either of us. Back to the cabin to rest before going to hear music in the Atrium. (Cabin STILL not cleaned) Rested for a minute and Volter came to clean so we went to the Piano Bar to read. Heard an announcement that there’s someone needing medical treatment so we are powering full steam to Cozumel - arrival 0100. At 8ish we went to The Atrium to hear Kudos Strings. Listened to faves like Stairway to Heaven, Devil went down to GA, Phantom of the Opera and more, while 2 little girls danced to the music! Back to cabin @10. 1/19 Friday Cozumel Woke at around 2 AM and we were docked. Got up at six and Shawn went for laps around the deck. My room service continental breakfast was brought at about 620 and was double or triple what was brought up the last time. It was great. NOTE: The carnival Internet is horrible. We paid for the middle – class version, the value Internet, and it is horribly, horribly slow. They advertise that their premier version is three times faster, but three times the pace of a snail is still a slow turtle so I can’t imagine that it is much better. I cannot recommend paying money for the service. Got the internet to work well enough to finish daily chores - only took 1.75 hours to do what would take 10 minutes at home. Packed up supplies for the orphanage tour. S came back from laps (40+ overall)! Went to Lido for breakfast buffet - great sausage gravy! Back to cabin to pack up, lather up (sunscreen) and ship out. Out 0 forward and saw all the other ships: Carnival Dream next to us, Regal Princess at semi- dock, 2 RC ships at piers closer to downtown. Got all the way to Three Amigos then realized I forgot the excursion tickets:-(. Shawn parked me and headed back. S back with tickets and we checked in with Give Back tour then went to the drug store. Shawn went in and found higher concentration Volteran plus Aleve gel but had to stand in line 35 minutes. Met tour guide David and got aqua happy face sticker. Ran to Pancho’s Backyard for a margarita - took too long. Got it five minutes before departure and took it with us. Back to meeting spot and group of 15-18 followed David to open-air safari bus. Climbed up the tall stairs into the bus. The bus hit the road bumps like a tank. First stop at San Jose Del Mar church. Only 26 years old, but cool stained glass windows. Not only the stations of the cross but also local history depicted. This was in sharp contrast to the church in Jamaica, which was an adopted colonial church. Then on to the City of Angels orphanage (Cuidad de Angeles) a charity of the Church of Christ which houses kids with surrogate parents in houses (2 parents to 5-10 kids per house, 6-18-year-olds). They have 5 acres of land with house-building ongoing. They are trying to raise money for that, education, healthcare, etc. Julio showed us around and gave us info. We saw only a few young people, and we did not interact with any of them. Back on the bus to Cocina Economica Los Chilangos (Chilangos which means “out of towners” because the proprietors are from Mexico City). Local food: Pasta soup, chips and green salsa (HOT), Homemade corn tortillas and a choice of entree. I had Deditas en crema chile poblano (chicken pieces). Shawn had Cerna de res entomatada (beef in tomato sauce) both with refried beans and rice. Lovely lunch then back to the pier. Went by the drug store and got then went back to Poncho’s Backyard for guacamole and rum punch. Back to the ship and a quick rest before heading to the port side to watch the drunks and late runners. Found a salt-encrusted window on deck 5 and saw a few drunks and almost no runners despite their being 30 minutes late! Schwartz the cruise director tried to chivvy them along with Chariots of Fire music but to no avail. We finally left Cozumel at about 6:10 pm. Went to 3 Atrium to hear classics by Kudos Strings. Then dinner on Lido as Guy Fieri’s burgers were closed at 6:30. We went back to the cabin to get a jacket and I wimped out. Shawn went back to hear Kudos Strings while I lay down. Read for a while - S back at 9 and to sleep. 1/20 Saturday Day at sea I slept until 6:45 while Shawn did laps. Got up but even before 0700 the internet sucks. Shawn back at 7:25 after 10 laps! Internet off and on Went to brunch in Blush and tipped Joseph (from the Philippines) and Augustina the Bloody Mary lady. I had filet and eggs with grilled tomato and home fries (extra béarnaise)- perfect! S had the pasta. Lovely meal!! Checked spa temps but both were tepid, so back to cabin to read/time Cs play, but S napped instead. Today, Volter came at 0910 of course! Said he’d come back later. He never introduced himself but knew our names. We timed Cs play then went to Lido for tea. S saw the Ropes Course was open so parked me on 11 and went up. I enjoyed the sun and breeze and ocean view. S came back as the Ropes had just closed for lunch (at 11:30) until 1:30. We went back and edited until 1:40, then Shawn went to Ropes while I fought the computer. He came back after an hour and showed me pictures of the hard vs easy sides of the course. Shawn did the easy and hard parts, which were all fun. The ‘hard’ side looked to be particularly difficult for people who were big/heavy. We went to 10 and split a burger then went by the shops for gifts before returning to the cabin. We read for a while then showered and packed up everything we could. Read a bit then went to Blush for farewell dinner. S had caprese salad, creole shrimp, and a baked potato. I had creamy mango soup as well as baked onion soup, then ricotta ravioli. S had a complimentary glass of Merlot and I had lemonade. Tipped and said bye to Winaya and Retno. Down to Atrium to hear Kudos Strings one last time: Bohemian Rhapsody, Only You (Patsy Cline), Celebration, and La Bamba. Back to cabin a little after 10. Finished packing all but the essentials and put out suitcases then to bed. 1/21 Galveston Alarm at 6. But it was 6 EST so we went back to bed a while. Up again at real 6 and Shawn went for 4 laps while I finally shed packing. Went up to Lido for breakfast but Shawn was disappointed - no gravy! Ate then back to cabin to get stuff, including walker! We were supposed to meet other priority departures in the midship restaurant at 8:15. Loaded up and headed to forward elevators which the ship announcements had said were for deck 11-12 and priorities only -ha! Waited 15 minutes because all elevators jam-packed. Finally got an empty elevator up to 12 then down to deck 3 where people were already exiting. Got right thru and got a porter to pick up luggage and take us through customs/immigration (no customs forms anymore. Porter dropped me and bags at F and Shawn went for car. Fast and easy disembark!

I chose this cruise because when I went some years ago I was on a walker and in wheel chair but on another ship. The entertainment was not good and people didn’t respect the smoking areas me and my husband has asthma and we had to keep tell the people’s that bring the drinks and if we didn’t say anything they didn’t either. My husband wanted to go in the casino but the smoke was so bad. And dI guess we where be hind the because we where speed all 6 days the ship rocked day and night until the seventh day that’s just not good at all . I’m not pleased at all with carnival Breeze. I got sick the first night and had to stay in my room for a day and they gave me credit for another cruise I have to use it in 24 months why I can’t have my money back for that day . I might not take a cruise in 24 months, my last cruise was horrible.. Read Less

Originally, this was to be a Mother-Daughter trip to celebrate my 50th birthday. We weren't sure we could afford to take the entire family. But thanks to a good tax return, we ended up booking three inside cabins for 3 adults and 3 children. My daughter and I shared a room, while my husband bunked with my oldest son, and my sister-in-law with my youngest. We ended up celebrating three birthdays - mine, my oldest son's, and my sister-in-laws. Embarkation: We arrived early at the port of Galveston, parked, and got to the terminal in plenty of time for the cruise. I had to use a walker, due to a recent back/knee injury, so we were directed to the VIP line for check-in. Here we met our first hiccup - they would allow me and my daughter (sharing my room) to go through, but not the rest of the party, because we were in separate cabins. That seems kind of odd. We eventually all went through together, but I would think that Carnival would try and keep families together, especially when we had tied our reservations together, had adjoining cabins, etc. But we got through, got checked in, and waited about 45 minutes until our group number was called. Unfortunately, they were having issues with the boarding ramp, so we ended up entering the ship on Deck 1 instead of Deck 3. No big deal - kind of an adventure getting through the terminal to the alternate entry point. At this point - we decided to find someplace to eat. We wanted to try the pasta bar at Cucina del Capitano - having read that they serve lunch on embarkation days (and every day). Again, crew told us that only the LIdo deck venues were open - the buffet, Guy's burgers, Blue Iguana Tacos, and Pizza PIrate. So we hit the buffet, along with tons of other people. My sister in law went by the restaurant - and it was open! Wish we had gone there just to check - so my tip to anyone reading is go there anyway. It's on Deck 11, just up from the main buffet area, and can be reached by elevator or stairs. Cabins: We had three inside cabins on deck 7, towards the aft of the ship. The rooms were nice, but my cabin was setup in a king size configuration instead of the twin beds. With the walker, that made it a bit cramped. Because our luggage was delivered early (yeah!) we asked the cabin steward to change it the next day. That night, we had to put the walker in front of the door (behind where the bathroom door opens). With the beds together, you need the walkway alongside the beds and at the end of the bed to get around. So it felt very cramped. Once the beds were separated, the whole room seemed bigger. I was able to park the walker at the end of my bed, between the bed and the fridge/TV cabinet. We had a nice central walkway, and plenty of room at the end of the beds for storage and people (my cabin was the gathering place for all the kids). So keep this in mind when you travel - having the beds together in an inside or outside cabin will give you less space to put things. Having the beds separated really opens up the room. Just saying... One note about the walker. I have a Rollator brand walker with four wheels and a seat. It fit through the cabin door, but just barely. So if you need a walker, you can fit it in a regular cabin with a little jiggling as you get through the doorway. Dining: My husband and sister-in -law hit the Steakhouse specialty restaurant the first night, while the three kids and I ate in the Sapphire Dining Room (your time dining plan). They liked the steakhouse, but the thing they talked about the most was the "compliments of the chef" appetizers. My husband got a slider/burger, and he said it was the best thing he has ever eaten. But the steaks were just OK - he felt. They brought me the leftovers and I enjoyed them, even though they were cold. On the second night of the cruise, we all ate dinner at Cucina del Capitano to celebrate the birthdays. We loved the singing waiters, and the food was excellent. We tried several of the appetizers - Calimari, Mozzarella/Tomato salad, anit-pasti, meatballs, and the best of the best - the Arancini. Oh my - those risotto balls are to die for! We also got bruschetta which was fantastic. My husband got the lasagne, my sister in law got the braised short ribs, I got the pasta carbonara (my favorite!), the boys got the spaghetti, and my daughter got the grilled shrimp. It was so good! We got one of each of the desserts to share - the favorite being the Lemon sorbet. I can definitely recommend Cucina del Capitano for dinner. It's only $15 per person and the experience is totally worth it. Also - Cucina is open for lunch. You can get the lasagne, or a "make your own pasta" selection, where you choose the noodles, sauce, and mix-ins and they bring it to you. I also like that you can get a half portion of the pasta. Try it for lunch - it's free then and usually half empty, so a great alternative to the Lido buffet. On the Lido, my daughter practically lived at the Mongolian Wok (only open for lunch). The boys and I loved Pizza Pirate - we would ask them to make us a pepperoni and mushroom pizza and they would make it to order, so it came out hot and fresh (tip - ask for a custom pizza to get one that is fresh). We tried Blue Iguana for both breakfast and lunch. It was OK - not my favorite flavors, but the salsas are great. Guys burgers were good, as was his Pig and Anchor BBQ (only on sea days). But we never got to the Tandoori restaurant on the Lido - too many other options, even for a 7 day cruise. We did afternoon tea on the first sea day out. They only have regular and green tea for free - all other tea flavors you have to pay for. So my tip - bring your favorite herbal or regular tea, or order the hot chocolate. They had cucumber and salmon sandwiches, two types of scones, and several cakes and desserts. Again, it's not well attended, so you can easily get a table near the window, and enjoy the string quartet playing softly in the background. Very nice change of pace for a cruise ship. Dinners were mainly in the Sapphire Dining room. Alex and his staff (Suki and iuri) were attentive and entertaining. They were patient with my six year old (who loves people) and with my 15 year old who has autism. They would often bring out extra items for us to try, since they saw us taking pictures and sharing entrees, etc. The food was pretty good in the main dining room, and it was fun to try all of the "adventurous" items like the Ox Tongue. Activities: The kids really never went to the Kids Clubs, so I can't review that. We spent most of our days in the pool in the morning, then hanging out in the Red Frog Pub or the Library with games and puzzles. We had a puzzle mat and my oldest son worked on his puzzle throughout the cruise. The Red Frog pub on deck 5 was a great place to hang out during the day - very quiet, and you could spread out games, color, or just chill. On sea days they start drink service and pub grub at 11am (definitely try the BBQ pork sliders with the spicy plantain chips!), but on port days they didn't serve until 4pm. The trivia games were always packed, so we mostly skipped those. We started the Clue game - which runs throughout the week and is connected to the Bingo games - but missed several of the "clue reveals" so never finished it. The kids loved the "dive in movies" each night, even though we had seen most of them. We were also relieved to find Tom and Jerry on Boomerang in the cabin entertainment system, for my autistic son. The one comment on the activities - the ship seemed to put the popular items in the smallest venues, so not everyone could attend. They held the cooking demo in the Steakhouse (which seats less than 100 - and there are 4000 passengers on the ship). The trivia games were in a small plaza lounge, so people were standing and sitting everywhere. But they would hold the bingo in the theatre with half of one floor attending. Very odd. Accessibility: as I said, I had to use a walker due to a recent injury. There were several of us with walkers on the ship, as well as a few people in wheelchairs and on scooters. For the most part, the ship is easy to get around for someone with mobility issues. The exceptions are the WaterWorks deck area (deck 11) and the sports deck (deck 12). While you can take an elevator to them, there are stairs you have to navigate to get to the sports deck or pool. And some of the forward viewing areas (on deck 6 and 7) also had steps and large doorways to step over. So it's not fully accessible in all places. And the handicap bathrooms aren't in the same locations on each deck. Some are forward, some mid-ships, and never where I seemed to need them. Just an observation. Overall - I did enjoy our cruise. I would definitely go back on the Carnival Breeze again. Except for the buffet area on day 1, and some of the "sea day only" food venues, it never really felt too crowded. I can definitely recommend the cruise again - and maybe this time I will get to the spa and the Serenity deck. Read Less

This was my third cruise, and I (39-year-old woman) traveled with my 8-year-old daughter (her first) and my parents who are in their late 60s (their fourth cruise). My mother has mobility issues and has a scooter, and I have to say that I was very, very impressed with all of the assistance they provided her. Embarkation and debarkation were very fast because we got to go through the special lines. During the dining room, etc, everyone was always helpful and friendly and attentive to her. I looked and looked for the "bad" things that others have said about this cruise. Crowded? Yes, in places, but I didn't find anything terrible to ruin my cruise. Bad food? No way! The dining room food was simply delicious, and the few dishes that weren't to my liking didn't hinder my experience whatsoever. The Lido buffet was very good--I found a few of the desserts to be bland, but there was always something else to try. Nothing to do? By no means! I kept missing things I wanted to do because there were often 2 things going at the same time. Dirty? Not while I was there--everything was spotless and constantly being cleaned, which was nice The service was OUTSTANDING on this cruise. We had the best waiters in the dining room, and everyone I spoke to was serviceable and friendly. My room steward was just fine, but he wasn't the best I've ever had. It certainly didn't detract from my experience, though. My daughter loved Camp Ocean and the counselors were very good. I witnessed my daughter having a meltdown as I came to pick her up (she didn't know I was watching), and saw the counselor pull her aside and calm her down. I was very impressed with how she handled the situation, and I'm glad they have this as an option on board. It certainly gave me a break from her when I needed it! . A few issues--it can get CHILLY inside of the boat in places, so bring a sweater or sweatshirt. I wasn't THAT impressed with the singers/dancers in the evening shows. The magician was pretty good, though. The guy at the piano bar was good. My parents went to hear several of the comedians and they really liked them (the PG version). Also, this boat moved more than any other I've ever been on. The last 3 days the movement was constant. LUCKILY I no longer get seasick (what a pleasant surprise!) but if you do have issues, this might not have been the cruise for you. Also, Thrill Theater was fun but not too special, and if you don't get there early you won't get to see the show. I only did it for my daughter, but for adults I'd skip it. Ports--we did the Turtle Farm Excursion in Grand Cayman, and it was VERY good for the money I spent. Very worth it. Cozumel---we did a Discover Mexico tour at a little park. It was cheap and my mother could go in her scooter, which is why we did it. It was just fine, but nothing fantastic. Great gift shop, good information if you like history, but I wouldn't do it again. All in all, a wonderful trip. My father is already planning another cruise for him and my mother, and my daughter is pestering me for our next one! Read Less

Carnival Breeze was a great ship!! Matt Mitcham is the best cruise director ever!! He has great energy, very approachable, and very funny!! The entire entertainment crew was great especially Orlando!! All the crew members were very friendly and very helpful... I had to use a scooter because I hurt my ankle prior to coming on the ship. Every time a crew member saw me in the buffet line they would take my tray and get my food for me. The food was delicious especially the lobster tail on elegant night in the dining hall, Guys Burgers, and the burritos at the Blue Iguana..... The deck parties were a blast and the shows in the Ovation theatre were great too. I had cabin 11275 which was an upper/lower handicap accessible room very spacious with a huge bathroom. Only problem which didn't bother me but I know will bother others was less closet space and the room is directly under the water works on deck 12. You actually hear the bucket dumping water right over your room. My daughter had a blast with her new friends but she said the counselor in Club O2 was boring!!! Please if you get the chance to sail on the Breeze go for it especially before Matt leaves in November 2015!!! Read Less

Let me start by saying there has been a 5 year gap in since our last cruise and some things have changed. Some for the good and some not so good. Fortunately the good out weighed the not so good by far. Embarkation: Carnivals embarkation process gets a big thumbs up. We arrived in Miami at 10:08 on the day of sailing. We picked up our luggage and low and behold not next to the carrousel was a Carnival check in station. We stood in line for approximately 10 minutes and got completely checked in including our photo sail and sign card. Next we walked to the door and jumped in a cab. The cab to the port of Miami was $25 for the three of us rather than $54 for transfers each way and there is no waiting just get in and go. When we arrived at the Carnival Cruise terminal we were sent directly to the elevator and to the welcome aboard picture and right on the ship. Our room was clean and ready so we dropped off our carry-ons and went to the Lido Deck for some long awaited food. We were almost the first ones to board and were eating by 11 am. Folks that is less than an hour from arrival to eating on the Lido. I really don't know how anyone can improve on that. The Ship: The Breeze is nicely decorated and overall a beautiful Ship. The one Change in the newer ships that I consider not a good thing is the shrinking of the atrium to accommodate more cabins I presume. It use to be breathtaking to ride the glass elevators but on the Breeze you basically are looking at a painted wall and some hanging lights until you get down to about deck 5 where it opens up and you can see the Atrium bar and staircase. This is not a great big deal I just miss the Grand Atriums and Grand staircases Not Grand. I realize downsizing the Atrium allows for more staterooms but..... That is really the only disappointment about the ship as far as the ship goes. Everything else about the ship was amazing the colors and décor was very nice not gaudy. It was more elegant. The entrance to the Blush Restaurant is a prime example. It was beautifully done. The Serenity area was so great with two hot tubs, hammocks, lounge chairs with 4 inch mattress pads, Cabana type day beds that would hold three or four people and all just for adults to relax and enjoy. You could hear a small bit of noise from the water works but it was not bothersome. Water works was a lot of fun and one of the only places to really cool off. More adults used it than kids. the temperatures were quite warm the whole cruise so cooling off was a priority. The ocean temperatures were obviously high as the salt water pools were nearly as warm as the air temperature making it hard to cool off. Deck 14 was also where you entered the slides. There was miniature golf, volley ball, Basket ball, table tennis, and many more things to do on Deck 15. All open air. Deck 5 was one of the favorite places to hang out. It had 4 large, raised whirlpool tubs that hung partially over the sea with glass walls to protect you from the wind but allowing a great view. These are located on outside deck that runs most of the length on both sides of the ship two on the port side and two on the starboard there is also a giant chess set on that deck. All along deck 5 there were tables and chairs with umbrellas on some and others in the shady recesses. There were also many lounge chairs. There were always plenty of empty chairs at any time of day. The Dining: The Blush Dining room was very nice. I was a little disappointed in the menu. They now have a two page menu. One page is the same and the other changes every day. It seems as if there were fewer choices than there use to be. There is still plenty to eat. The service at our table was not the best. Too many mistakes. I don't believe this was the fault of the wait staff. on previous cruises there was a head waiter and one helper. The Breeze has a head waiter and two helpers but they seem to be run ragged. I think they now have actually fewer wait staff that must cover more tables. They seem to be over taxed to me. The Lido buffet: Actually the buffet was not bad. The breakfast buffet was outstanding for buffet food. The pancakes and French toast were hot enough to melt butter. The lunch buffet was decent. We never ate at the dinner buffet so I can't say how it was. There were other options also on the Lido deck. There was Guy's burgers which was very popular but the line moved quickly. The burgers were good and the fries were excellent. Then there was The Blue Iguana Cantina also very popular especially their huge breakfast Burritos. Both Guy's Burgers and the Blue Iguana are on the pool deck at the entrance to the Lido Buffet. Other no cost food is available at the Pizzeria Lido aft, the Red Frog deck 5 mid ship port side and a BBQ place on deck 5 port side on the open deck. There was no problem getting enough to eat :) Our Cabin: Our cabin was a balcony cabin on deck 11 mid ship, port side. It was by far the best cabin we have ever had. Location was perfect. The cabin was beautiful in blue and cream. No more 70s pink and orange. We were in cabin 11272. We were about 20 feet from the stairs on the outside going down to the Lido pool one deck below. We could get to Blue Iguana or the buffet in about two minutes. We were also about 6 cabins away from the Atrium elevators which was perfect for my wife who is disabled. Three minutes from the cabin to the ice cream machine and back is totally awesome. The blue Iguana tequila bar is 30 seconds away. Our Itinerary: Great Itinerary. But it didn't happen quite the way it was suppose to. We were suppose to have one day at sea, Grand Turk, La Romana Dominican Republic, Curacao and Aruba. A hurricane got in the way of the Dominican republic so the captain opted to give us a fourth at sea day rather than putting us in harms way. He rebated the port charges, taxes and fees for La Romana and extended our in port time in Grand Turk and Curacao which I was very happy with as we were originally to arrive in Willamstadt at One pm and depart at 10 pm. Now we arrived at 8 am and departed at 10 pm. Great day there. I have one complaint about the Dive In movie on the Lido. They showed top first run movies but we never got to watch one. The movie started at 7 pm which was right in the middle of our early seating dinner and it ended right in the middle of the late seating folks dinner. The any time diners would have to get ready to eat before 9:30 so in essence no one could conveniently watch the movie without skipping dinner. I think this could be scheduled a little better. Debarkation was almost as good as embarkation. Our flight out was not until 6 pm so we booked an Everglades air boat tour so we went to the theater at 7:15 am. We were off the ship by 8 am and on a bus for the everglades. Our luggage was locked up on the bus and guarded while we did the tour then they took us and our luggage to Miami airport. If you have time before your flight that is the way to go. All in all the Ship is magnificent, the crew is friendly and went out of their way to make our cruise a great memory. Would we take this cruise on the Breeze again? Absolutely!!!   Read Less

I liked the Breeze so much in November that when a really good deal with no single supplement, $50 deposit & payment due 30 days prior to sailing came along I couldn"t resist! I had missed doing a lot the last time so needed to revisit her. Because I have to pay around $500 for a flight I looked for another cruise to combine with it & chose the new NCL Getaway which I'll review some day. I arrived in Miami the day before sailing & stayed at Homewood Suites near the airport. It's a great hotel with free breakfast & even supper if you're there Mon to Thursday. It's like an apartment so very spacious with a full size fridge, microwave & dishwasher. They offered a shuttle for $12 to the port so I chose to go at 11:00 am & was onboard at 11:45 so that was quick. I did have FTTF which I like to purchase in order to avoid carrying my carry arround with me.. I headed straight to Mongolian Wok which I missed out on last time. Waiting in line was smoky as others have pointed out but the food was tasty just a little too much spice for me After lunch I went on the ship's tour as I found it a good way to meet a member of the CD staff which is nice if you're travelling solo. This time the group was so big that didn't happen. I headed back to my cove balcony & sat out a while. I must say I LOVED my cove 2349 as did everyone who saw it even CC member Gambee who was also on this cruise so I was thrilled to meet him finally. After the muster in the theatre I went to the Blue Iguana to meet some of our CC roll call . This was such a great group of people & we had a lively roll call on this site & the one that shall remain nameless. I had requested a large table & was happy to see that his time there was actually people other than me dining there so that was nice. I went to some activities with the other solo female there. I was really thrilled the 1st night with the beef brisket, so tender & tasty but most of the meals were not as memorable. Thus began a whirlwind of Thrill Theatre (which I missed last time so made up for it this time). I must say sometimes the action was quite strong & I thought I might fall off my chair! It was fun tho' & I believe I saw all those movies as well as other shows in the spacious lounge, casino, trivias & comedy shows. I really liked Jaylyn Bishop who I had seen last time, best of the comedians & loved a virgin drink they served only in that location. The Cinqo de Mayo trivia was special & a lot of fun especially since my team mate & I won the coveted ship on a stick. That was more her doing than mine but I do love trivia. The eating opportunities on Breeze are plentiful & I went to a few places I missed last time but also went back to Cucina for lunch with our CC group & for dinner alone but the salad that I'd been dreaming of since Nov. didn't seem to be as I remembered it. Loved Guy's Burgers, the Taste Bar, Blue Iguana, afternoon tea & the wine machine in the library. My cabin steward Duhon was great having my cabin made up before I returned from breakfast & making cute towels animals. I had a really great time & love the Carnival experience. The pictures are great, the Bingo reasonable, you get network stations on the tv if you have time to watch. It's a really fun ship even if one doesn't drink much or use the water facilities.   Read Less
