We choose the carnival Breeze this year because we heard it was an incredibly ship, and it was. Our cabin Stewart was Great she was very friendly and made us feel welcomed. The lines on the lido deck were long but hey we’re on vacation, not a big problem for me. I enjoyed the chance to talk and meet new people. We Loved the 80’s Rock and Glow night, we just wished they had the 80’s trivia game the same night. We enjoy dressing up in our costumes. The ports were beautiful and breathtaking, the water was so blue. The staff was also extremely friendly and really helpful we never needed anything. Our waiters in the Dining Room were incredible, they remembered our names and what we liked to eat and drink. Thanks Carnival for the wonderful memories Read Less

We did this cruise via a casino coupon and we upgraded to a Junior suite from an inside room . Mistake but I will talk about this in my cabin review. We were two couples in our early 40's and my single friend in her early 40's. The single friend was a first time cruiser and she loved it! The rest of us have been on 5 or 6 other cruises and thought it was up there in our favorite 2. We didn't go in with huge expectations and maybe that is why we had a blast. Embarkation was a breeze. Because I upgraded to a Suite we had priority boarding which meant a really short line compared to the huge line for everyone else. They will let your non suite friends get in the short line with you. We were there at noon and on the ship by 12:20. We all bought the drink package and thank god! We like to drink and some of them got cut off by midnight because they reached their 15 drink max. But hey, drinks get warm, you set them down, you may not like one, they still count so we were glad we bought it. Lunch on the Lido deck we all chose guys burgers and fries and they were all great. We hung out all day by the pool, in the casino, walking around etc. We missed going under the sky bridge in Tampa as we were in the casino (woopsy) . Anyway this boat rocked alot more than other cruise ships I have been on. Sometimes you noticed it, but I just tried to not look out the windows as we moved and I was generally fine. I am also very sensative to sea sickness and I never heard anyone else complain about it. We met for early 6pm dinner in the main dining room Destiny. We sat the 5 of us and 3 lovely ladies from Virginia. Our two waiters were great and our drinks and apps were on the table in 5 min. All our meals in the main dining room were very good! we did all pay $20 extra one night and got the filet and lobster and it did not disappoint. Day 2- arrive in Key west at noon, I really wished we got here sooner as it is very close to Tampa???? I was confused why the itinerary didnt allow more time at this port. Anyway we had a few cocktails on board and waited for the masses to fight their way off. We walked off at 12:50 ish and no lines. It rained all day in Key West but we did a little bar hopping and had fun anyway. Irish Kevins was for sure our favorite spot with the live singer/comedian guy. Got back on the little trolly thing around 3pm and went back to the ship. I will definately be back in Key West as it wasnt nearly enough time here. Got back went to casino (after we were like 12 miles out of course) and made it to the main dining room again for dinner. I say made it because it was a long day of drinking and some people wanted to nap! Food great again! Day 3- woke up around 8am, some ate breakfast (my husband and I don't really eat breakfast) Waited for most to get off the ship in CUBA, we got off around 11 am with absolutely no one in line. Customs took 30 seconds as did money exchange. Just to give an idea of how much you will need in Cuba, most of us took our $80 US and it was too much (for what we did). First of all DO NOT get suckered into buying an excursion if you want to just walk on your own!!!! Carnival will try and tell you that you have to check off "people to people" and book an excursion. We being in Cuba last year knew to check off "support the cuban people" option and you can totally just walk off. We walked to the main square accross from the ship and you will get a few locals asking if you want to pay $1 each and they will walk you around. We said no, but one guy seemed to never leave so what the heck we let him walk us around. He took us to a local John Lennon bar (dive bar but very cool!!) we all go cubra libras (rum and cokes) and were surprised it was $10 a drink!! We had one, felt very buzzed and moved on to the next stop. We walked through beautiful streets, saw the market, other squares, local people living life. It was great. Ernest Hemingway bar right near the port was our fave as it had live cuban music and here a round of drinks for 5 people was $7.50 US. Or $7.50 CUC. Totally cheap and fun here. We danced and walked around some more. We all tipped our guy $25 US and he was more than happy I am sure. Got back on the boat and only 2 made it to dinner.... Day 4 - Cozumel- We arrived at 12:45pm to port and we chose again to wait an hour before getting off to avoid the crowd. We had booked El Cid's for the twilight day pass as our ship was here 1pm to 9pm. No other day pass resorts were offering this late day pass. It was $65 each I think?? MAKE SURE you bring the printed piece of paper with your reservation or they will make you print it at the hotel. We had drinks, food (good food) towels, pool, snokeling, all included. It was a fun day! The shopping area right a the ship is awesome, I thought it was beautiful clean and lots to do. We were back on the ship around 6 as we are wimps of the sun and apparently cannot drink too much in the sun. Day 5- day at sea, usual activities, silly games by the pool, lots of food.... I dont really know as I was burnt from Mexico and did not hang around outside. We were mostly hanging around the casino area/American bar. Now 3 of us were smokers and even as a smoker I will say that this small one side of the bar and in the casino were always VERY smoky.. The air suckers in this area seemed to not work. This was also the area that they had the trivia games which we LOVED!! So much fun. But dang do something with the smoking vents! CASINO!!!!- Ok we hung out here ALOT!!! Like every day for a long time especially at night. We usually go to Greektown Casino in our hometown near Detroit. We usually hit at greektown pretty much every time we are there so we think it is the loosest best slots in the world lol . This casino was pretty close. It is small but it pays good!!! Every single time you sat down people were hitting like crazy! My husband probably won $1000 a day on slots easily. I couldnt believe it . I loved playing roulette with our group. I won one of the pong games in the casino where they called my name and I had to throw one out of ten ping pong balls into a gift bag with money on it. I won $75 it was fun. Overall the wait staff was fantastic, you always had a drink in your hand, we never waited once at any of the bars nor in the casino. Dinner service was fast, we never waited more than 10 min for dinner. I couldn't believe we were on the same cruise that people were ripping on the slow service and crappy food. We did not think this at all. Look , don't expect Ruth's Chris style meals, expect more like outback or Texas Road House lol. Then you will not be disappointed. This boat is small and therefore you won't get lost and everything is easy to get to. Having said that it is small and can sometimes feel like there is not much to do. There is not much craziness going on near the pool, which I like sometimes. We NEVER had a problem getting a chair, there were never any big drunks partying like it was springbreak. There was no more than 20 kids on the whole ship. It was just a great cool crowd of people. Cabin review is next.... Read Less

We called ourselves "Chicks On the Run" and a group of girlfriends decided to take a three day cruise and have fun, play cards and enjoy music and laughter and girl company. Boy were we in for a negative surprise!! We chose the line and ship so that we did not have to drive eight plus hours to south Florida. First the room attendant only gave us one small bar of soap for two guests. Towels were gray and rough and even though we asked for extra towels we never received them nor did we ever get a bucket of ice in our room. Dirty glass was left for us to clean??? . Cabin was kept clean, however the vinyl couch left much to be desired and one would never want to sit on it! Dining room staff gave us terrible service; so bad that we complained at Guest Services. Wine was brought to the table after we had finished most of our meal and the table was still filled with dirty dishes while the the waiter was serving us our dessert. Steak was tough, prime rib was tough and they do not know what au jus is. We received gloppy beef gravy for the prime rib. Breakfast was not much better in the dining room, as you had to ask for every little thing, including jam, butter and little pastries, just to name a few. Lunch at the buffet was good. Guy Fierrri's burgers were the best and the line to get a burger proved it. The Mongolian Wok station was also very good, however long, long lines to have your selections cooked. Dirty floors all around the ship, lack of help all over the ship was quite obvious. Do not get the "Drink Package" as you will never get the service to order the drink and if you do, you will not receive it, way within an hour! Daylight savings time and the ships clocks were never corrected, so we got our wakeup call an hour late! Public bathrooms were nasty. Needed a luggage tag for disembarkation, go get it yourself! I am still waiting for credit for my beverage package that I was told would be credited to my account!! The best part of the cruise was being with friends! Carnival was to give us a "Cocktail Party with dry snacks and drinks. It turned out to be drinks we really did not want and not even a cracker was to be found! Desserts were good. So I guess the saying "Let Them eat cake" is the way Carnival thinks!!! Smoke was terrible wherever you walked on the public areas of the ship. Felt bad for the staff that had to inhale all the second hand smoke around them. I have sailed over 25+ cruises, including Carnival and I have never been on a ship as bad as this. Read Less

I heard the Carnival Miracle has the most elbow room on all the ships, its true, it seemed to have a lot less people all over the ship, the food and waiters / waitresses were phenomenal in the MDR, the buffet was very good for breakfast, lunch and snacks, pizza pirate never disappointed, steakhouse was worth the $35, I reserved a table for us before the price increase, Chopsticks was a tasty treat. The ship is very easy to navigate and we loved the decor throughout the ship and she is still clean even though it is a older ship, there is a little rust here and there and I expected that. Our shore excursions were faster to the fun, Deluxe Beach, Catamaran Sail & Snorkel in Cozumel and Rays & Reef Snorkel in Grand Cayman, all of these excursions we outstanding and well worth the price, in Mahogany Bay we just walked to the beautiful beach and Tiki bar were we swam then had the really delicious jerk chicken with wonderful margaritas. We took the tender to the port of Belize were we did some shopping and had drinks along the way till we went back to the ship, it was a awesome trip and we will sail on her again in the future.

Was on this cruise as part of a baseball camp/cross cultural game experience. I have cruised many times with both Carnival and Norwegian and have also cruised on Princess and Royal Caribbean. This ship has the most pleasant and accommodating staff that I have come in contact with in quite some time. They were all very welcoming throughout the course of the week unlike some ship reviews which have stated the staff appeared worn out and miserable. The food was also very tasty and the wait staff at our 8:15 seating were very accommodating. The buffets as usual were very crowded during peak times and even the dining room for breakfast had a wait. My cabin steward was excellent. Room kept in great condition, ice left as requested with towel animals further beautifying the cabin everyday. Didn’t see any of the shows in the main theatre but found the live music to be outstanding. Attended the Quest which was definitely R rated, and also experienced one comedian that was very good and another who should be fired. Arrived at around 1:30 and the lines moved briskly. Debarkation to the various ports was frustrating because people refused to follow directions and created traffic jams on the stairs and corridors as one person tried to stay a step ahead of the other person while at the same time trying to keep their group together. This brought things to a crawl. People did much better when we disembarked in Miami. The Magic as a ship is mid sized not too small but not so large that you become exhausted going from one end of the ship to the other. I would certainly go on the Magic again should it visit some ports that I have not experienced. Read Less

This is the newest Carnival Ship in fleet going to an Island I had not been to before ( St Kitts) You might miss the towering 9 story atrium but the new 3 story with the ever changing lightscape tower in the center of the Atrium bar is really cool. ONCE you master the new elevators it's a great innovation. I found that the "learning curve" for many passengers took perhaps the whole cruise. You have to hit the floor button in the waiting area as many times as there are people in your party or there may not be enough room as it's a "smart" elevator. However they need a handicap button as when a person with a wheelchair or scooter enters it's hard to fit more people in. The Comedy club venue ( Limelight Lounge deck 4 ) is small and the shows only last 30 minutes so get there early to get the best seats. Playlist productions has great shows in the forward Liquid Lounge (Decks 4 & 5) which turns into their late nite nightclub after the shows.Promenade deck 5 has many shops and bars with plenty of activity My best bartenders were: Pig & Anchor Bar = Ivana. Havana Bar = Diana, Alchemy Bar = Maria. Didn't go to the Piano bar but many said it was a great venue late after dinner. Read Less

It was a bingo bugle tournament cruise. I had a great time. My room was clean and airy and I was close to the elevator. I was on deck 2 and concerned because I had read reviews about the noise being so low down and close to elevator. The only noise was a couple of drunks one night and the dropping of the anchor early one morning.i did not go on any any excursions but did go ashore for brief periods.Found the food very good although only warm at the buffet. Dining room early seating was excellent and we had 2 wonderful wait staff that addressed me by name each time and made sure I had my Diet Coke asap Every evening close to dessert time there was entertainment in the form of dance or song by the wait staff. Simply fun..Seaday brunch was excellent. I had a bottomless bubbles package and had no problems getting my pop.definitely worth buying. Embarkation went well .very organized but lots of lines and never-ending walking. I had the best time and have booked for the tournament next year on the carnival magic. Read Less

I was on this cruise as part of a hosted singles cruise with a group of over 100 people. I had a great time and no complaints about anything to do with the ship or guest services. Had late dining and ate dinner in the main dining room six of seven nights. Have zero complaints about any of the food. Enjoyed alligator and ox tounge among the more rare things I ate. Among other food I really enjoyed the seaside BBQ and was glad I was able to get it more than one day. Tandoor indian food was a nice surprise that a friend recommended and I'm glad she did. Guys Burgers and Blue Iguana breakfast were good as is the usual. Didn't make it to any of the comedy shows, but the quest game was hilarious and I am totally doing that again. The full band playing on ocean plaza (deck 5 mid) was really good and had lots of people dancing. Received decent enough service at Casino bar, Red Frog Rum bar, and Alchemy bar. I think the very best service was at Red Frog Pub. That place with busy some nights with baseball fans watching the World Series and I still got my drinks fast pretty much every time. Sports square was a nice touch for the ship's outdoor activities, although I didn't actually do the ropes course or any of the waterslides. I love the hottubs on serenity deck with a bar right there. Our ports of call were: Amber Cove, St Thomas, San Juan, Grand Turk. Experienced no problems with any of these ports or getting on/off the ship. The Carnival Breeze seems to have something for everyone and I would totally recommend this ship for someone's first experience on Carnival. Not as hectic as the newer and larger Vista and Horizon, and not as run-down looking as some of the older Carnival ships. Had an awesome time. Read Less

We went on our first cruise with a large group of friends. We met up in Tampa and took a shuttle to the port. Embarkation was very quick (faster to the fun) and a smooth process. We enjoyed walking around the ship and getting oriented before the muster drill. The sail away party was a lot of fun and going under the bridge was quite a sight as well. We found the ship to be clean and our cabin was always maintained thanks to our steward, Wayan. He was most helpful and answered any questions we had. The activities on deck were fun to watch and we had a great time hanging out by the pool and gathering in the Alchemy Bar. Our wait staff in the Main Dining Room were amazing! Ali, our head waiter, and his team, were very knowledgeable and helped me with my choices so that I would have the best dining experience possible. Every staff member we encountered were friendly and helpful. I even saw some of the staff dealing with rude cruisers and I never heard them lose their professionalism. We missed a port in Mahogany Bay because of high winds. I was disappointed to not go on our excursion, but was glad the captain made the call and kept us safe. The other ports were great and our excursions were wonderful. We enjoyed the Altun Ha ruins in Belize and the Crystal Caves adventure in Grand Cayman. This was our first cruise but some of our group were diamond and platinum cruisers and they were just as pleased as we were. Read Less

Fiabola and Armando from the tour bus were funny and great to talk to. They gave us great recommendations. Felt safe with the tour vus as well. Ping ball ans miniature golf was so much fun. Swimming was fun. All staff on deck was excellent. Very sweet staff. I hope to see the dame staff there when I take another carnival inspiration cruise.

We are gold on Carnival and with that we can say that the Vista was a fantastic ship. We were in a suite 7370. Excellent access to all events. We are stair people, only because we don't want to make that extra 5 lbs average increase on a cruise get the better of us. So elevators issues were not a problem. We took them getting on and getting off only, since we had bags. They were as to be expected, tight and you had to go down to go up (if you know what I mean), but everyone was friendly. The ship was clean and tight. The last approximately 2 1/2 years have been good to the Vista, that is a tribute to the crew and their tireless push to keep it looking ship-shape and Bristol fashion! Shows and clubs were well attended and fun. The IMAX is completely unhooked! It in my opinion is one of the best small theaters I have ever been in, small meaning 185 people small!. Behind the Fun tour is hard to get but very very worth the effort. Sign up as soon as you enter the ship at excisions or customer service! Seeing the I-95 is amazing, that is deck zero corridor that runs the length of the ship. Also the galley, laundry, back stage, oh and the brig...it is a great behind the scene tour! They do 2 every last sea days with 16 people per tour. So they fill up fast. Nice job Carnival in bringing a truly first class ship to Texas! Read Less

I must say, this was my first cruise and all around it was AMAZING. Everyday, every moment, every seconds I loved it. But what also made my 8 days at sea so wonderful is the amazing staff I came in contact with. First these to amazing people Francisco and Thal in house keeping, always remember there pleasant and genuine smile in the mornings and evening. I should know because I LOVE people and these two they have a very gentleness and pleasant spirit towards them. I pray a special blessing upon them and their family. They were very kind. Next in Pixels is Sinisa (Serbia). He is very pleasant and does an amazing job at what he does in Pixel. He complements a girl's picture when he is in it. Must I also say, he is GORGEOUS. Just a bonus and glad he was on this ship. Now a sets of amazing waiters, Adi, William (Colombia), Esther or queen Esther (India), Edi (Indonesia) and James ( St. Vincent).... These crew made my Church sisters and I laugh so hard and was a great pleasure having them as our waiters. They made dinner in the evenings exciting and with a lot of laughter. I do pray they keep that excitement in them because they help made my first cruise very exciting and a great experience. And to top is off, Mike the cruise director, HE WAS AWESOME and FUNNY. Whatever he does he makes it very exciting and gets the crowd involved in fun and excitment. From start to finish was amazing getting on the ship was all pure excitement for me but leaving I wasn't ready. I am sure there are plenty more wonderful people on board like the few I mentioned, but I must say GREAT STAFF you have Carnival Horizon. Thanks to you and your staff especially the ones I mentioned for making my first experience a memorable one. Read Less

I choose this cruise because it was going to the Panama Canal and the port was close to home in Mobile. It was a longer cruise and like to travel on the ship. The more days, the better it is. We booked the cruise 11 month in advance because it was filling up pretty fast. Some of my friends were going and they told us about it. This was our 18th cruise on the Carnival. We like a smaller ship and the Fantasy is one of the smallest ship in the fleet. It is the oldest. We took our snorket gear with us so when we visited Rotan (Magahony Bay) we could do some snorkeling too. The water was so clear, but not many things to see in the clear water since they had rock barriers. There were a few little fish to see. The weather couln't have been any nicer. The cabin was ready when we board and we greeted our steward. He was very friendly and we wanted ice and he kept us with ice the whole trip. The dining waiters were very friendly and worked hard for our table of 10. We had people that were late every time and they just smile and took their orders, which sometimes held our meals up. Anything we needed we just call the service desk and we got all our answers and services we needed. The ports were great and we enjoyed our cruise very much. Over all the staff was great. Read Less

We had family that was booked on this cruise.. about a month out we decided to join them.. This was the first time that we had cruised with others.. and only our 5th cruise...We had a fantastic time with minor and personal disappointments.. By no means am I complaining at all.. It was great.. A few minor things.. Left out of NY. Which we have done a few times.. There was always someone at the parking pier to help with our bags.. I have COPD so its hard for me to help hubby sometimes.. Sadly no one was there to help us.. We did manage.. BUT there was a family with a few disabled children that had no help at all..When we got down stairs DH did ask that someone please go up and help this family.. There was no way they could do it alone.. We were thanked later that day by the family.. They said someone did come to help.. The Horizon is using the new elevator system.. Now this did work out for most of us after the first day.. On boarding day they do ask that you please not use the elevators until we are moving.. Go figure.. no one listened.. So it was a mess.. BUT.. How it works is simple.. and it worked great if people would listen or learn how it works. There are menu boards outside the elevators with the different floors.. They want you to press the floor you want for each person that will be using the elevator.. so if 4 people are going to floor 5 press it 4 times.. that way the elevators knows how many people will be boarding that elevator.. BUT some people would press it once and then expect to load 10 people in when we already have 7 of us waiting.. They need to stress how it works a bit louder so people understand.. When it was used correctly it was great.. Rooms.. Food.. staff.. all fantastic.. I would have preferred a better mix of music by the pools.. It was the same music everyday.. and not very entertaining.. Although the shows were great as always.. I would have liked them to mix it up a bit more..I like to do and see as much as I can.. The sitting ares outside were perfection.. I enjoyed sitting and relaxing on a few days which I never ever do. We ate in the dinning room at night and the staff was fantastic and the food was very good.. The last 2 nights I did notice that the shared bathrooms around the ship were not being cleaned as well as they had been. not sure why.. We did see some food left on th floor the next day after being cleaned.. which was also strange.. Normally the ships are very very clean.. But this was still nothing to complain about.. It was very minimal.. We did have a hurricane that was building so we had to miss a port.. but always need to be safer than not.. So now the real complaints.. I gained to much weight.. and I walked.. Enjoy your next cruise everyone.. I am already looking into ours.. Read Less

Me and my wife took the cruise for our honeymoon and first vacation ever to ourselfs. I was surprised at the selections of food they had on the cruise. Me and my wife definately did not go hungry, if anything we gained a few pounds while on our cruise. The sun decks were perfect for many people to enjoy the sun as well as other company. I enjoyed trying my hand at many games in the casino, even thou I didn't win anything. My wife enjoyed a couple of the games in the video arcade, at least the easy ones. The pool side movies were a nice touch, even thou I only got to watch one of the many they showed. The cabin was spacious for two people to share, might've been crowed if more than two had the same room. The steward we had, Junaedi, was very nice and helpful with any request. We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion we decided at the last minute to go snorkeling and eat a Mexican lunch with tequila tastings with Claudia. I would highly recommend taking the cruise with the triumph going to Cozumel, Mexico. Just make sure to bring plenty of spending cash. Read Less

The crew was great and Very HELPFUL!!!! Simon was a GREAT Cruise Director and helpful... DJ Saxy was smashing the tunes and knew how to mix the songs and not just play just another song. Jay Jay our Stateroom Steward was amazing and made sure we were taken care of in 1055. The band Nola and the Po’Boys were blazing and big shout out to I think his name was Rico(the bass player) we had great musician talk and I waiter for table 326 at the late dining was very good and remembered our names and drinks .. The Asian band was also very funky... Now would I go back??? YEP!!!! The burgers and fries was BLAZING!! Every crew memeber I seen working worked with a smile and a willing heart. The only thing I didn’t like was that I couldn’t find anything I didn’t like(Lol) but seriously, I give my hat,boots,fried chicken off to you guys.... 1 Luv!!! MB stateroom (1055) Read Less

The service on the cruise was outstanding. My waiter Ciprian or chip was amazing always made sure we had everything we needed. Everyone on the cruise was very welcoming handbags helpfu. Getting on and off the ship went very smoothly. There was 8 of us that cruises on the splendor, they always made sure to give us all the space we needed. The cruise gave us options once you got off the ship such as excursions and restaurants to go eat at or see. Entertainment on the ship was amazing. The shows on the ship they would do we’re so much fun and you could even talk to the cast afterwards. They were so sweet and fun to be around. The comedy shows we’re hilarious and they had family shows too so everyone can watch them. Certain nights they would hold deck parties and play music and just dance all night. On other nights they would hold movies out on the deck where everyone could lay out and watch them it was awesome. Read Less

I would sail with any other cruise line have tried it and Carnival is the best cruise line. The staff were very pleasant. Dustin and Michelle from Amber Palace were very entertaining. The shows were awesome. My head waiter Bebe and Roma from the Platinum Dining Room was very nice and always helped with making great meal choices. My girls 14 & 7 had a amazing time. My 7 year old loved the slides. The ports had great shopping areas. The lido is a little small not quite enough room for the deck parties. The movie notes were great on the deck. My cabin 1301 on Rivera Deck was really hot the next time I'm on this ship that is one room I prefer not to be in. I couldn't get any sleep because it was so hot. Everything else in the cabin was great. Thanks Carnival for always making our vacation fun. Read Less

I absolutely LOVE Carnival. This is my second cruise with Carnival, and was completely satisfied. The Staff is so awesome, the food is great. The entertainment is amazing. You'll never go hungry, and you'll never get bored. I cant wait for my next one. Every single one of the staff that was told my name. Always knew my name each and every time I was in their presence. I was amazed by that. I didn't matter if it was the housekeeper, or the spa staff, or the bar tenders. They always addressed me by my name. I was also very impressed by the Captain. He informed us that there was a disturbance close to the ukitan peninsula that we would be going through. And to expect 10ft. Squalls. But he actually got us through it and past it in such a timely manner that we were barely affected by it. Read Less

Keetut deck 6 room cleaner awesome guy. Mongolian walk left cook amazing food . Ringo for chef's table thank you for the inside look at the inner workings of your operations. Javed baker thanks for showing lava cake. Shout out to Donkey for all the laughter. Sid the magician at chef table rope trick red balls excellent. Overall I'm a first timer thank you for the memories. Will be back just going somewhere else with Carnival. So give my few listed friends a paid day off. Oh black dude at rock show last night go Broadway. Enjoyed hot tub movies at night. Guys burger and blue iguana cantina burrito never let me down. Loved all tax free shopping. Very easy getting on but faster getting off without any hassle. Every worker I made eye contact with greeted and smiled. Impressed on how many nationalities are on board. U.N. needs to take mental notes. Thanks agian. Read Less

Carnival Breeze has so much to do. Lots of Amazing shows. We made a lot of great friends. Had spectacular food. I don’t have anything negative to say about our 7 day cruise. This was our first cruise and I am already planning next years. We needed a much over do vacation we stayed so relaxed came home regenerated. The only thing I would highly recommend buying one of the drink packages, you really don’t realize how much your drinking not just alcoholic drinks but soft drinks also. It is well worth the money. If you have children the have teen camps and kid camps and they put on the cutest show after the doctor suess parade. We never felt any rocking so never any motion sickness for our first cruise. So if you are thinking about taking a cruise than choose Carnival wouldn’t want to go on any other cruise line. Read Less

i am just back from Carnival Horizon ship. this is my fourth cruise with Carnival and the ship is amazing. the atmosphere was so happy and cool, the service all over the ship was fantastic, food was great in the buffet as well as in the beautiful dining room. also recommnded to eat at Bonsai, we had a great time there and definitely go to the pig & anchor pub which offers 4 kinds of homemade draft beers. the rooms are large and bright, the casino was big and very active and fun was all over including the shows and the comdian which i highly recommend to go at least one night. the hamburgers are big wow!! the ice cream is unforgettable ... i didn't sail with kids but i saw so many features that they will love! skyride, waterslides, video games, IMAX and many more. well done to Carnival! it's definitely best value for money !!!
