Cozumel=Progresso Family Vacation Disappointment

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

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 ...

I told my wife it was as if Carnival pulled the ship up to Walmart, lowered the gangway and shouted " Ok, get on." This is my ninth cruise, the second with my wife and the first with my twin, 12 yr old girls. We left out of NYC. I have never seen a more crowded ship in my entire life. I have no idea how Carnival can expect to accommodate 3200 guests in just two very small pools, pools no ...

I was satisfied with the food, the cheifs table was great , our room and room service was great and the comedy show was great every thing else worst the worst it was very boring the music was the worst I've ever seen on any cruise I felt like I was a senior retirement cruise everything was chartered to Caucasians. The employees were very Nonchalant. I will never visit this ship or recommend ...

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 ...

Worst managed ship I've ever been on.

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

This ship was built for 3,960 guest. After boarding we found that 4,400 guest we on board. Long lines for food, entertainment, not enough lounge chairs and we were enroute to Aruba, for 2 days. After getting back from excursion there was no food. It was a hurry up and wait for anything the entire cruise. Over crowding in the limelight lounge for music and dancing was bad but the they ...

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 ...
