We chose this cruise because it fit our time constraint. The boarding process was a bit chaotic, especially since we travelled with my 77 year old mother and her wheel chair escort did not know what to do or where to go, he kept asking us: ... Read more

Just off the Valor this morning. Had a great 5-day cruise with my wife and son. The ship was very clean and the staff worked hard keeping it this way. Our ocean-view stateroom (#2355) was bigger than expected. The drapes were a bit ... Read more

This may be the best ship in the Carnival fleet, but it still has it's shortfalls. For a ship that just came out of drydock, there seemed to be quite a bit of small items that needed fixing, like stair skids. Why were they not all new? ... Read more

I will not cruise out of Galveston in July ever again. Too hot. Too many kids. Although I did say that two years ago after a cruise on the Magic. There were 8 of us in three cabins; two suites and a balcony room all in a row. We ... Read more

We have cruised 9 times with Carnival and NCL on many ships. Freedom is one of my favorite ships for amenities offered, layout, and the Cruise Director and his team. From Guys Burgers and Blue Iguana Cantina to Red Frog Pub, from Camp ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise (3rd with Carnival.) And our most disappointing. The food and service in dining room was nothing to get excited about and we ate in the buffet more than on any other cruise. And although there were signs asking ... Read more

I'm a first time cruiser, so I have nothing to compare my cruise to. Having said that, I have not a single complaint. The Breeze is clean and beautiful. My room steward, Sam, was attentive and warm. Embarkation and disembarkation went ... Read more

I traveled with a group of co-workers. Food was good, not great, with a few inspired items, like the rabbit appetizer or strawberry bisque in the dining room or the apple cake on buffet. Plenty of activities. The port at Cozumel is ... Read more

The Carnival Breeze has a LOT to offer! Plenty of entertainment options with the Thrill Theater, Ovation Theater, and Limelight Lounge. The waterslides were a HUGE hit with my 6 year old daughter! Can't wait to go on the Breeze again! ... Read more
