we loved our cruise on the carnival breeze. the ship has a lot of activities, great crew and good food choices. crew- the staff was great. our room steward was very helpful. the cruise director and entertainment team were really good. food- we enjoyed all of the included food venues. loved Tandoor, Blue Iguana, and the wok. the food in the MDR was also really good. the only issue was some days the service was really slow (2 hours for dinner) deck 5- nice location with additional whirlpools (others deck 10) and lounging chairs and chess. also, the bbq restaurant is on this deck. pools- the pools were a bit small and always crowded. embarkation- it was really quick and easy. very impressed with the efficient process at galveston. entertainment/ activities- comedy shows were good. but, the limelight lounge is really small and many shows were standing room only. the playlist shows were pretty good not great. the clue murder mystery was ok, but, not that great. we could've skipped it since there is only 1 winner. we enjoyed the sports area- ping pong, pool, track, bball, and track. ports- cozumel, roatan, belize. all ports were fun. tendering in belize creates some issues because it limits time for the excursion.

We primarily cruise Royal Caribbean (RC) but this was our son's senior trip and we thought we would try the "Fun Ship". They have the O2 club for 15-17 year olds. My son and his friend did not really want to go....but I insisted they try it out. They ended up going there every evening! We kept comparing RC to Carnival. There are pros and cons. The embarkation was smooth. There were many elderly staff who were just thrilled to be there and guide you. The same goes for debarkation. No problems. Their muster drill was better too. We didn't have to put on the life jacket and go stand by the boats. Instead you are assigned to a designated area and they scan your card. If you're not there, they call your name over the PA system. Everyone had to be accounted for....then they demonstrated the life jackets and gave a brief presentation. Quick and easy. After we found our rooms. My husband and I went looking for the "main area" of the ship.....only to find out that we entered the ship on the main area! Very small compared to RC. I read other reviews about the deck lounge chairs and I agree......people hoarded them. I swear there were chairs with towels on them......and I never saw people there using them! Pools were small and always filled with young children. The adult "Serenity" area was nice...but only hot tubs. Also it was right by the large water works area....so not so serene with kids screaming. I feel that the ship was clean. There was also staff cleaning the bathrooms and picking up trash. We actually feel that our service was superb. I did read that others did not have the same experience. Our room attendant cleaned it 2x per day. Loved the towel animals. We had late dinner at 8:15pm. Our 3 servers were attentive to our needs. Found out that we like lemon wedges with our water and from then on they were always on the table when we got there. They also called us by our names which was nice. It terms of others saying there were small portions....did you know that you can order 2 or more of anything? My son ordered 2 appetizers and 2 main courses. Yes....I even ordered 2 desserts! All of us thought the food was great! The Mongolian Wok was good....but I had to wait 30 minutes in line to get it. One staff cooking with 3 woks for a ship of 4,800 people? Anything in the food area was a wait.......the Deli....breakfast or lunch buffet.....burgers. Long lines were frustrating. The "Fun Crew" made it fun with games and trivia. We played an adult game of Quest. You would never see that on RC. We laughed a lot! The entertainment shows consisted of the same 6-8 crew members. They tried their best. But I think it's not easy to dance and sing on key at the same time. The cruise director was great (Lee). He was all over the ship. We wondered how he was everywhere all the time. His announcement were appreciated but you did have to open your cabin door to hear them. Most likely it's because people might be sleeping/relaxing and they don't want to disturb you. We had to walk through the casino to get to parts of the ship. It actually made me feel sick to smell all the smoke from the smokers! There weren't many areas for them to smoke so I think they all were there.....lots of them. Also another review had stated the aft (back) of the ship smelled like sewage......I agree! It did! But after the first few minutes....you kinda got used to it and didn't smell it anymore. The comedian was excellent. Better than RC! Warning! Don't buy the discounted Invicta watches. We bought 3! One retailed $295 we purchased for $79.99.....found it on amazon for $50. Another retailed $495 purchased for $120 on amazon for $68...the last retailed $695 purchased for $140 and was $75 on amazon. We were thinking that Carnival would not try to "scam" people....what I learned after the fact was that the shops are independently ran by Starboard Cruise Services....(but we received a Carnival receipt).....we were caught up in the moment...there was a frenzy of people buying. We will know better next time. The actual crowd on Carnival was different from RC. A little more "rough around the edges". .. The photographers on the ship did an awesome job. They seemed to be professional photographers and posed you for the pictures. On RC it was click and done...just someone with a camera. So.....would we do Carnival again.....yes for the right price. But I still prefer Royal Caribbean. Read Less

This was our third time on the Breeze. Love the layout of the ship. Food is just average. Entertainment, just average to slightly below average. Still an overall good family vacation. The Embankment out of Galveston TX was much smoother and the personnel much friendly then when we sailed out of Miami on the Breeze. I thought the entertainment was below average and the food was nothing to write home about. Food menu has not changed much in three years and from night to night. The ship is overall clean and the staff work hard to be provide excellent service. We enjoyed the different ports of call (Cozumel, Belize and Honduras) this time then from Miami. I think Carnival provides good value for cruising, however if you are looking for superior food, service and amenities, you won't find it with carnival, it all depends on your budget and what your expectations are.

This date and sailing were chosen for a family trip with three generations from 70 to 3 yrs of age. It was just close to PERFECT. Lee, the cruise director, was a key factor in creating a happiness environment. And the whole cast of entertainers and musicians and dancers was just wonderful. The two of us older ones were involved in nearly every activity possible and up till past 12:30 every night. The band, The Midas Touch, were wonderful (xoxo to Brandon- the lead male vocalist), The Calverts were super (would have only liked more selections suitable for slower dancing), MoTown show-- great, dancing on the Lido deck also great (even if we were the oldest there), the many opportunities for line dancing.... all these activities kept us moving and having FUN. Our steward, Fidel, was wonderful and so kind and efficient. The whole crew on the ship from the ropes course to the dining services to the guest service desk-- everyone was warm and friendly. WE were just amazed at the personal interactions and their ability to remember us BY NAME starting with day one! We enjoyed all the dining-- from buffet to Sapphire. We won a dinner for two to Farenheit Steak House and it was superior! We would not have chosen to go, but did and it was truly luxurious and exceptionally great food and service. This was our second cruise- first on Carnival- and our cabin was great-- spacious, loads of storage, wonderful window (far superior on all counts to our cruise on a different line and with same cabin grade. We will choose Carnival AGAIN! Loved all the activities for kids so parents could have their own time! Our grandkids LOVED going to the Kids clubs and the Night Owl. The HUB is an absolute must even if traveling alone because the ability to have a map or list of activities at touch was great! And for us, as a family of 9, we could communicate via chat and find each other. **INVESTIGATE WHAT YOUR INSURANCE WILL OR WILL NOT COVER MEDICALLY IF ON SHIP IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS. Our new friends across the hall had a medical emergency and all costs were put on her sign and sail card-- they would accept no insurance even for the ICU portion of their time in medical! OUCH! About the only points I have to offer for improvement are the following: 1. the internet purchase (the mid range plan) was useless. I could virtually never get on or stay on. 2. the Serenity Area (adults only) needs a system of having a check out system for the beds, chairs, and hammock ,etc... because there were people that got up there early and literally camped out in the accommodations for the whole day... never letting others have a chance. Some system of getting a hang tag that allows you one hour per item per person.... 3. the craft activity on the third sea day was completely age inappropriate for almost any of the kids... and it was described as cutting, pasting, etc-- for kids. It was an embroidery project that for most participants meant learning a new skill and one that could not be completed in the 45 minutes before we had to clear the area for a new activity. 4. The cost of drinks was reasonable... but the cost of bottled alcohol was out of sight. 5. have ice available on each floor.... or have ice buckets that can go to the room from the Lido Beverage station. 6. personally, we all learned that three days of shore excursions in a row is very exhausting... better to select an itinerary with a break in there somewhere. We loved the two sea days in a row. Read Less

We had a balcony and inside room and compared to Norwegian, these were large. Old Tv and very slow service on the tv. The employees were very nice. The steak and seafood restaurant are to die for. Order the oysters at the seafood restaurant and the artwork desert. Very cool presentation. We traveled with 4 teenagers 15-17 and they were bored a large portion of the time. Not enough for them to do. Pools were too full and the water slide lines extremely long. They close the basketball court from 530-1130 daily and all the games are 18+ (for dodgeball??) there was a bad smell a good portion of the time off the back of the boat. Massage was $180 and pedicure $85 before tip. Buffet had the same food each day which got old fast. The shows were good but Hasbro for example, was all about small children. My teens got bored quickly. Would recommend another boat or cruise line for traveling with teenagers. Read Less

This was my second cruise (both Carnival), and after enjoying the first so much, I was greatly looking forward to being on an even bigger, newer ship. The experience, unfortunately, was pretty lackluster. Embarkation and debarkation went smoothly--much more so than my last visit a few years ago, so I was happy with that. There was standing in long lines, yes, but the lines moved pretty quickly and we got cycled through in about thirty minutes. Ship: The ship is beautiful and has nice interior decoration--it's not over-the-top or gaudy like some of the older ships. Everywhere we went though, especially decks 10, 11, and 12 where people like to lay out and watch the ocean, were PACKED. My husband and I tried many times to find open lounge chairs, doing full laps of all decks, and none were available. So many people "claimed" loungers with their towels or other items, then left. There simply aren't enough chairs for everyone to claim one all day, or even hours at a time. Cabin: This was my first time having a balcony. I was on deck nine, mid-ship. In the future, I'll go lower! The room felt like it was rocking most of the time. Having a balcony made the room seem so much bigger (I mean, it WAS bigger than an interior room, but a lot of it had to do with the light coming in). During this sailing, the wind was so strong that we weren't often able to enjoy the deck, but there were a few days we were able to sit out there together and enjoy it. I think in the future I'd rather put the extra money of a balcony cabin toward something else, but I'm glad to have tried it! Dining: I was really let down by the food. Breakfast in the main dining room and Lido were pretty good--no complaints there, food-wise (okay, except the eggs). There was a pretty good selection of the usual fare--fruit, yogurt, milk, cereal, eggs (powdered and pretty awful), bacon, some version of sausage or ham, and usually either pancakes, french toast, or waffles. The coffee is just terrible, and the hot chocolate machines didn't seem to be mixing the hot water with the chocolate powder right; often, the hot chocolate was nothing more than hot water with a very slight brownish haze. Lunch in Lido had decent variety, but the food quality usually wasn't very good. Guy's Burgers is good, I didn't care for Pizza Pirate at all, Pig and Anchor was alright, and the deli counter that served sandwiches was slow but good. I only ate dinner in the main dining room once. I ordered a steak, medium-well, and received a briquette. I don't mind a little char, but it was pretty much charcoal through and through. Fahrenheit 555 is nice. I'm a gal with simple tastes, so some of the things were a little fancy for me, but I managed to find things in every course that sounded good, and my husband (much more adventurous than me where food is concerned) loved the opportunity to try beef tartare. The steaks were HUGE and well-cooked. Well worth the $35 pp charge. Cucina del Capitano was also really good, and a good value. The fare there comes with far less presentation than the steakhouse, but that suited me just fine. $15 pp, and money well spent. Dinner in Lido is... awful. There was a single line worth of selection (okay, technically two, but it mirrored the first line, so there wasn't anything different). I think Carnival is really pushing their specialty dining by not offering much in the buffet area. By dinner time, Guy's Burgers is closed, so several times I opted for a sandwich. It was a little disappointing. The dessert bar featured good, fresh fruit (pineapple, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew), but the desserts themselves were hit and miss. Often, things touted as "cake" were more like a gelatin dessert. The cheesecake, when available, was good. The chocolate cake was more frosting than cake though :-/ Entertainment and Activities: The show "Flick" was really, really good.There were comedians every night, usually performing two shows, and though I only made it to one performance, it was really good. I didn't even mind standing up in the back--but I recommend arriving early for those who do! Cruise Director Lee is funny and personable. There's lots of evening/night entertainment. Morning/afternoon entertainment, on the other hand, is lacking. This ship just seemed to have too many people on it, so for the few activities during the day that didn't feature a sales pitch, there were a ton of people. Daytime activities were things along the lines of trivia, bingo, and lots and lots of things to try and get you to buy and spend. Being a non-gambler meant I had a lot of free time during the day, and since there was no space to sit outside and enjoy the day or a book or my husband's company, we were often left roaming, bored, looking for things to do.

This was my first cruise. My wife and I decided to plan a trip for our son that is graduating this year. We booked well in advance along with several other families, 25 people in all. Carnival made it very easy to book our rooms and be in close proxmity. We selected the early dining time of 6:00 PM. The first night at dinner we where scattered across 4 tables. We mentioned this to the staff and for the rest of the trip we all were upgraded to Saphire Room and all 25 sat at one table for the rest of the cruise. The rooms and ammenities of the ship surpassed all my expectations. There is so much to do and see on the ship that we had to make it a point to check in with our travel companions or you could go several days without bumping into each other. Our cruise visited three ports on the trip; Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. Montego Bay, Jamaica. Jamaica was the biggest disappointment of our entire trip; within 10 minutes of leaving port our bus driver stopped the bus and his assistant requested 25 dollars per person to guarantee our safety as the area was currently in a "State of Emergency". The bus continued and eventually stopped in a shopping district. At this point we requested to be let off and the bus driver closed the door on us, our group was rather large and we were able to force our way off the buss and paid to enter a private resort near the bus. The Grand Cayman's surpassed all our expectations and hope to return in the future. We never felt pressured on the Island and everyone in our group participated in a snorkeling trip. We couldn't have been more impressed by the people and the beauty. Cozumel was also fun as we rented Jeeps and felt completely safe on our own and the people there and awesome. We did do some snorkeling and enjoyed shopping. I would book this trip and recommend it to all my friends with the one suggestion that they DON'T GET OFF THE SHIP IN JAMAICA. Read Less

Nearly impossible to not enjoy a cruise. Loved the ship and the shows. The playlist cast were wonderful and my favorite was Flick. We got to meet the cast at an after party and they were genuinely sweet and patient, posing for pics and answering questions. Stacey and Amber were British dolls and Michael was my favorite overall. He had great stories to tell. Wasn’t too impressed with our dining room staff. Very nice but seemed very disorganized. Often had to ask more than once for refills or ordered items. We also had an odor problem on 8 aft, both in hallway and our room. Our steward Jessie did his best to mitigate the smell but it kept coming back. Very sewer smelling. Guest services tried to make things right but haven’t seen the credit yet . We did our own vow renewal on the ship during Jamaica port and did a Dreams Studio photo shoot. Would have loved more outdoor pics but Luca did a good job. Attended the Cruise Critic meet and mingle and were the only ones who showed. Met Courtney and Monroe as well as two officers. All were very nice and kind. Courtney even had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room. As well, Mr John Heald also had strawberries and champagne delivered to our room. Thank you. Overall a good time and looking forward to amour next cruise after Thanksgiving. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, and port locations. I made the mistake of thinking all "spring breaks" would be over this last week of March. I was wrong. Note to everyone, do not cruise in March, unless you have kids and love kids. I was shocked how many kids were on this cruise. The lack of parenting was atrocious. Ship is just like the "Magic" with a little different decor and a few different restaurant choices. Entertainment wasn't that great. However, The "Lip Sync Battle" final production on Saturday was fun to watch. Bar Service was great. Smile, be nice, be patient and you will get good service. Reverse all that and I can assure you, you will not get good service. Cruise director Lee was good. We enjoyed his antics. I have to give a shout out to "Laz" from England. He was on the "Fun Staff" He should and deserves to be a Cruise Director. He was fantastic and very entertaining. Always had a huge, happy crowd at his activities. Also, Miss "Iowa" .... was superb as well. Sorry I can't remember her name. Thank you Galveston for changing the 'embarkation' procedures. it is much easier to get thru the process and onto the ship now, especially if you have 'Faster to the Fun' or are a V.I.P. Platinum, or Diamond member. I will say this though..... the Luggage guys could care less if you have the FTTF tags. they come and get delivered with all the other luggage. No priority, separation, or faster delivery. I think we are just burnt out on cruises, we've been on 5 in the last 4 years. Would I go again? Not anytime soon..... probably not Carnival either.

Our family of five has wanted to sail on the Breeze since sailing on her sister ship, the Carnival Magic, for a NYE cruise a few years ago. We drove down to the Port of Galveston for spring break with our three school-age children, ages 13, 10 and 7. Embarkation was very quick. I dropped off my husband and kids with our luggage at the porters, then parked the car at the Port of Galveston lot and took the shuttle over to meet them. They had waited for me in line at embarkation, and it went very quickly once I arrived. I would definitely recommend arriving after lunch, within your chosen arrival time. This made it go much faster for us! We had no trouble with fog sailing out of Galveston, and we left right on schedule. We did encounter some fog after we'd already left the port, but it didn't effect us at all, aside from hearing the fog horn going off a time or two. We had two connecting balcony staterooms on deck 8 forward, one with a king bed, and the other with three twins. The rooms seemed small at first, but we had plenty of space for everything that travels with a family of five, and having two bathrooms (toilets!) was a wonderful thing! Our stateroom attendant introduced himself to us, and gave us his card. He had me fill out a sheet about when I wanted to have our room serviced, in the morning, evening or both. I had heard about this before, but our last two spring break cruises (on the Elation and then the Vista), we were never asked which we prefer, and we had our room serviced twice. So, this was our first experience with the one-time service. It wasn't terrible, and I understand why they do it, but there is a little magic lost receiving the towel animal at 10am, and no Fun Times and chocolates left on your bed at night. Like I said, it's nothing to whine about, but I did miss it a smidge. Our stewards were very friendly, and did a nice job keeping up our rooms. They cleaned and left the towel animals, but did nothing above and beyond like our previous stewards have done, like putting hats and sunglasses on the kids' towel animals, or incorporating the kids' stuffed animals into the presentation. I ended up doing this during the day because my youngest still very much enjoys the surprise. We ate in the MDR three of the seven nights, and the service was wonderful. With so many other things we'd like to do on board, we just couldn't justify spending an hour and a half on a meal every night, but the nights we were there is was very nice. We happened to be in the MDR on the first sea day night (elegant night), and a legit fight broke out. It was...interesting... to watch. I felt badly for the passengers seated nearby the action, but the Carnival staff handled it well, and removed those involved as quickly as they could. When we weren't eating in the MDR, we were usually up on the Lido eating from the deli (we ordered from the deli a LOT!! love the tomato and mozzarella sandwich and fries...mmmm...those deli fries...), Pizza Pirate, and we ate once or twice from the actual buffet. My boys had Guy's burgers a few times, too. We had lunch at the Italian restaurant once, and it was very good, however, one woman on the wait staff was a bit rude to us because we didn't turn in the order forms for our table all at the same time. : / oops. We ate at Bonsai Sushi once, too. The couple seated next to us order a giant boat sampler and it was so cool! I wish my kids were more adventurous so we could have tried that! Maybe in a few years... We had Sea Day brunch twice, and the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast on our last morning. Highly recommend both. All in all, the food was good. My husband bought coffee every morning at the Java Blue Cafe, right at 7am when they opened. We went through 3 loyalty cards! He always got an iced latte, but I tried a variety of coffees, mostly lattes and mochas, and they were all effective (I have found the Lido deck coffee to not "work" on me? Maybe it's weak, or the cups are too small for me. Not sure. But the lattes woke me up!). The staff at the coffee shop is always – always! – so busy, but they are also some of the sweetest ladies on board. Our kids tried the milkshakes and frappes there, too. 3 out of 3 would recommend! As for on board experiences, we tried to do as much as we could from the morning show to the evening comedy, and my kids really enjoy interacting with the staff. Speaking of the staff, we cruised with Lee Mason as our CD and he is so. much. fun!!! You can tell he really enjoys his job; he brings so much energy and enthusiasm to every event. The other members of the Fun Squad were also fantastic, noteably Las, Lindsey and Ryan. This was really a dream team, dedicated to making it a very fun week for their guests. We played Bingo (my 10-year-old's aka "Bingo Boy" favorite), saw 4-5 different comedians preform (always a winner), and highly recommend checking out the Lip Synch Battle throughout the week and concluding with the showdown at the end of the week. So fun! We arrived early for Hasboro the Game Show because my 10-year-old was determined to play, and luckily he was chosen in round one and got to be part of the team that played Yatzee Bowling. His team didn't win, but he was happy to have finally been able to get up on stage (on our last two cruises he missed out, so third time was a charm!). We also went to a bunch of trivia's – my 13-year-old won one fo the trivia in Red Frog Pub (LOL! Ryan couldn't give him the huge tube of beer as his prize, so he found a ship on a stick for him. Thanks so much, Ryan!). My two youngest two spent a lot of time in the pool and on the waterslides. I hear the orange one is very fast and fun! And, as always we spent a lot of time in the Sports Square playing mini golf, pool, and ping pong. This year the boys tried the ropes course for the first time and it was a definite highlight! My youngest now only wants to sail on ships with a ropes course, he loved it that much. I had a great time hanging out by the aft pool. The kids would play in the pool, or head up to the waterslides, and I was able to sit and relax with a book or a magazine (and a drink!). LOVE it. Would go back and do that today if I could! I also want to mention that Carnival has a staff member watching the pools. Like a Life Guard, but not called out as a life guard. I believe their shirts read Staff Member. But a Staff Member was standing in the water, watching the pool the entire time. There was also a Staff Member at the mid ship pool. I was glad to see this. Our ports were Cozumel, Belize and Mahogany Bay. We've been on this exact cruise before, so we knew what to expect. We always love a visit to Mr. Sanchos in Cozumel, and we had a great day there. In Belize we did the Snorkeling the Wonders of the Barrier Reef excursion through Carnival. I had read many great reviews about this excursion, and I was really excited for the snorkeling. However, it was an incredibly disappointing experience, start to finish. I would not recommend it until there is word that Carnival has gotten the vendor to improve the dependability of their watercraft. On our trip to the island we were marooned at sea for about 30 minutes because of an engine break down, then on our return trip, we had to putter back to the ship in the lowest gear because of another faulty engine. We took 3 different boats to and from Rendezvous Cay on this excursion, and 2 of 3 broke down. I'm not exaggerating when I say most of our time in Belize was spent on faulty watercraft. So frustrating, and such a waste of time! What little time we did get to snorkel the Barrier Reef was super cool. But buyer beware with that excursion! In Mahogany Bay we wanted an easy beach day, so I pre-purchased two of the Relax on the Beach with Kayak packages for our family of five. We all five rode the magic chairs over to the beach, then upon arrival we were set up with our two clams shells, four loungers and two tables between them. The package also came with four floating mats. We ate and drank at Fat Tuesday's (the quesadillas were so good!), and four of us went kayaking. It was a perfect day for us, and we'd probably do the same thing all over again on our next visit. I think the Breeze may have been the only ship in port this day because the beach wasn't crowded at all. We sailed with a lot of families from Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas and Arkansas – the majority of us on spring break. Only one group of college age travelers that stood out, but not in a terrible or obnoxious way, and my husband and I enjoyed watching them throughout the week. Overall it was a fantastic week on the Breeze, and we are already looking forward to next spring break's cruise! Read Less
