Me and my wife sailed with Carnival on board the Breeze In November 2019 for our honeymoon. We had a room on the first floor with an ocean view. The cruise was 7 days and we enjoyed every second of it. The staff was not only amazing but by the second day they had already remembered both of our names and what we liked to order. The food was outstanding and the dining room staff was always so friendly and helpful. Every drink we ordered regardless of our location was made perfectly. The shows were always Entertaining and fun for everyone. I’ve been on 3 cruises, all with carnival and I’ve never experienced or overheard any have one negative thing to say about any of them. The staff treats everyone with the upmost respect even when some passengers don’t deserve it. Our waiter, Roberto, and his dining room staff always made us feel welcomed and at home. You can’t go wrong cruising with carnival, the have so much stuff you can do so you’re never bored, and if you want to just relax all cruise and soak up some sun, then they have plenty of areas for that too. People that complain are just looking for free stuff, staying on deck two means that there is a whole deck of cabins below you, not the engine room. And lunch lines will be longer when you go at the same time as everybody else. You have multiple locations that are all open for multiple hours. Read Less

Like the dream class because you can walk around the ship on Deck 5. Had a spa balcony on deck 12 so very quiet room. Thermal suites were never crowded. Because it was only seven days, not that many platinum and diamond members so the previous guest party was not crowded at all. Our wait staff was super nice and the food was typical Carnival. Pizza is still a great option for something quick. Special call out for the service provided by Spasua, dining room hostess. Our area of two tables for breakfast one morning did not have waiters for some reason. After a wait, we asked her for help. She got things moving and checked on us often for the rest of the cruise. Even made table reservations for our next trip on the Breeze in January. The Park West art team on this ship is led by Alan who was just recently assigned. Him and his team are one of the best we have seen after over 40 cruises. Very easy to work with, passionate and sharp. A nice combination. Also the singers and dancers on the production cast are super talented. They provided nightly entertainment in the theater every night and were consistently excellent. Don’t miss showtime. Read Less

I've been cruising for 40 years, starting in 1978 on the emerald seas. I've taken over 40 cruises and am a gold carnival member. We took advantage of the many hotels that offer a park and cruise program where you can stay the night before departure and leave your car in their parking lot and take a shuttle to the port. We swore off carnival a couple of years ago because of bad experiences, but the ports were interesting and this was the first "large" ship we sailed at 130,000 tons. Apparently Carnival has decided to attract a certain demographic that were the most disgusting group of human beings I've been locked on a ship with. Their foul language, rude behavior and no consideration for the kids and ladies was horrible. On deck 11 above the main pool area as we were sitting with new friends we met, this group next to us started fighting and yelling the MF words, F words and then one of them got up and yelled across the pool to someone saying "hey MF come over here". They kept up the foul language until I stood up and threatened to knock him out if hey didn't shut his mouth. Told him there were kids and ladies here and didn't need to talk like that. Carnival had no security around. On the last night in the atrium level 3 another gang started yelling profanities, this time the security team removed them, but they were back 30 minutes later. These groups would travel in packs and my wife was scared to move about the ship unattended. On formal or dress up night they let these gangsta's come into the dining room with baseball hats, shorts, wife beater shirts. Carnival never enforced the dress code or any behavior rules. That being said, we booked this cruise for our 17th anniversary. Embarkation was for the most part fast. They herd you like cattle, long lines for everything, there was a black long hair in my eggs, when we were at the second "formal" night our personal carnival cruise planer DJ Myrick arranged for a anniversary cake and they gave it to another couple who had no idea why they were receiving a cake. Not being deterred, they ate our cake. I gave the cabin an excellent rating because it was a outside ocean view deluxe which had plenty of room and a FULL BATH AND A HALF BATH. The picture window was big enough to watch the ocean as we sailed. if I had kids I would NEVER sail with this company until they clean up their act. One more thing, Carnival now rents scooters. Not exaggerating, there were 400 scooters running into people, clogging elevators, running into the back of your legs if you take to long in the food line, One kid was playing with a scooter, lost control and cleared out a table of people. People were so feeble our departure was delayed due to a medical emergency and when we were disembarking a lady fell out of her wheel chair clogging the only way out. They called the ship doctor and when he arrived he told the people helping that he was familiar with her. While in port at Grand Turk the sister ship Dream had a medical emergency and they had to life flight someone to St. Thomas. A cruise is not the place if you're not not able to walk and your health is such that you may have to be left in port. That's expensive and on you. What a total disaster and waste of my hard earned money. Read Less

My sister chose this ship for her 50th birthday cruise. We had a blast, loved the pool entertainment. Love and marriage and my parents of 57 years won, was best part of trip. All the food was great, and loved the anytime pizza, which I ate alot after midnight. Dine in movies was fun too. Everything was great and will go on carnaval again, The rope course was great, we had so much fun doing with our niece. Guys burgers and fries station was awesome too. We had a balony room and steward was great and always there if we needed him. Also had room service for coffee every morning and was always fresh. We had fun at all the ports and love Senior Frogs. Our excusion was canceled, because of too windy, but we had a great time at the beach. so all and all everything was great and cant wait to go on another carnival cruise. Read Less

We selected let Carnival choose your room and save money. They gave us an inside room, no window s, no seating area, 2nd. Floor above the engine room!!! We paid the same price for that room as our other friends that were on the 9th floor with a sliding glass door and balcony, plus a sitting area!!!!! This is unfair pricing!!!!!! We absolutely did. To sleep due to the noise. We complained and this fell on deaf ears. They could have cared less!!!! I was told, once I was told my room assignment a couple of days prior to departure, it was a sold out cruise. They told me the only room available would cost more t(an a $1000 more!!!! So disappointing. Bartenders on this ship were rude also. They appeared bored. Made terrible drinks!!! The buffet was poorly planned. Long lines, terrible food!!! All the food was substandard, entertainment was like watching a junior high musical. The only good thing I can say about this cruise is the cruise director seemed to be very good and talented. I WILL NEVER GO ON A CARNIVAL CRUISE AGAIN!!!!!!! Book Royal Caribbean!!!! Or, better yet, save your money and book a VIKING European cruise!!!!!! Read Less

No matter where we were or what we did on our recent Carnival Breeze cruise, the employees were superb! From our room stewards, Gusti and John Paul, (room 2221) to our waiters, I Putu, Oscar and Carson (Table 533), to the Lido staff, Zara, and the Ocean Plaza help, Ruth, the employees were amazing, friendly, helpful and happy! The "Craft with Michael's" guys, Brad and Ryan were incredibly entertaining and fun. The four comedians, Dale Jones, Jodi White, Allen Mazen and Tyler (the bow tie guy) had us laughing until we were crying, both the family and adult shows! Also, the Sea Sharps are the best band that I've ever seen on my 75+ Carnival cruise days. They performed in the Ocean Plaza which was great because we could dance, but there was standing room only; they need a bigger venue! Schwartz is a fun cruise director; does he have time to sleep?! And, thank you for the daily puzzle, which I did every day; and this cruise, I borrowed a book from the library, read it and returned it, so I didn't even have to haul a book or Kindle around while traveling to and from the ship. Finally, the embark and disembark procedures were the fastest I've ever experienced. Love you Carnival! Read Less

This was our first Journey's cruise. We did not know what to expect. Out of 3800 Passengers, 1800 were Platinum and about 100 were diamond. This means you will wait if you aren't diamond or platinum. If I had to do it over, I would have waited to become platinum before doing this cruise. The ship is awesome but I will now add cough syrup to the list. Many got an upper respiratory virus on this cruise which is not Carnival's fault; however, they could have done a better job cleaning. I noticed the Breeze did not have as many alcohol gel stations as other ships. The bathrooms often have 4 stalls and only one dryer which means people will NOT wash their hands. I hope they get this figured out. Layout was the typical "Dream" Class ship. I did notice there were not as many stewards cleaning the common areas. Our waiters in the main dining room were amazing. Esumitra, Zara, and Joaquim made us feel like we were the only ones dining. You really get to know someone when you sail for 14 days. Millicent at the coffee bar was absolutely awesome. If you haven't tried the coffee bar you are missing out! Room stewards were a bit odd on this cruise. I know Carnival has assigned them 35 rooms to be done by 11am so they always seem rushed and miss things. They were very friendly and greeted us each day in the hallway. Room Service was prompt and very courteous. Great job to the staff! Did not attend stage shows as we've seen them before. Mark Preston was very good as a walk-on performer as well as the juggler. Comedy shows were good except for 2 comedians that put the crowd to sleep. Carl Strong made everyone laugh so hard they were falling out of their chairs. CoCo was the comedy host and she was AMAZING. She is well on her way to Cruise Director. The Sea Sharps with a side of Diggity was one of the best bands I've seen on a cruise ship. When they play jazz/blues they sound like grammy award winning artists! Read Less

This cruise was a blast. I took a trip with my husband and kids and we had lots of fun. the kid area wa not not that much i would say most of the events were for adults. The room was very nice and it was a decent size. The entertament was very funny me my husband and kids enjoyed the shows. Theb food was very good and all of the staff memebers were very helpful and nice. If you were to go on this trip i would say this is a family ship or just hanging out with friends. I would love to go on a carnival cruise again with muy family and the money was worth it i loved all the activites including basketball, golf, arcade and the casiono. I would say one bad thing about the ship is that is is very old and rusty it really didn't smell too good buh overall everyone was very nice and I would like to go again. Read Less

Embarkation was great. We arrived at Cape Canaveral around 10:30 a.m. and we were able to board before noon. The Carnival Breeze is a beautiful ship. Since our cruise was in October the ship was decorated for Halloween and had several activities on board that were Halloween related. Our dining experience was not what we have experienced in the past on Carnival. We had early dining in the Sapphire dining room. The service was fair. We were not offered refills on our ice tea, we had to ask. Waiter's were friendly but seemed stressed and in a hurry to clear dishes off the table. We felt like we were being rushed to finish our food. Food was always luke warm when served. Nothing was hot. Same with the buffet on the Lido deck with the exception of Guys Burgers they were hot and delicious. The entertainment was fair. We only enjoyed 1 of the shows. One night we ended up leaving before the show was over....along with several other passengers. We ordered coffee through room service a few mornings. Service was quick and servers were very nice. We only went on 1 excursion which was in St. Thomas, the sky lift. Beautiful view at the top. We had been to all of the ports in the past and we just enjoyed walking around to different shops and restaurants. Our room steward was great.Very nice. I doubt that we will sail on the Breeze in the future due to the food not being up to our expectations.Disembarkation was well organized and quick. Read Less

This was our second year on the Breeze. We even had the same Balcony cabin on Deck 6. We love the location mid ship. I was on a cane, from Back Surgery only 8 weeks earlier, And it was mid point to anywhere on the ship and I needed to walk a lot, and location made it a comfortable walk. Our cabin was always clean and inviting. We loved our balcony and spent a lot of time on it. When we met our room Stewart we ask for extra wash cloths daily, and I requested ice in the cabin. Both years 2918-2919 we were blessed with wonderful guys who kept ice 24/7 in our room. They were both very pleasant. We ate in the dining room with the “anytime dining”. We ate in different selections of the dining room in locations that did not require a lot of steps. Our food and service was always very good. We ate breakfast most mornings on the lido deck. It worked well as I am a picky Breakfast eater and could pick and choose. My husband is a big breakfast eater and was always pleased with the selections. We ate dinner one night at the evening buffet. My husband was happy with the meal, but I prefer dinner in the dining room. We did room service a couple of days after visiting the ports. We did some shopping at Cozumel and than returned to the ship After walking around the area. In Belize we also did a short excursion, and had lunch at a recommended spot for Coconut Shrimp, we also enjoyed the colorful entertainment of the servers. Did a little shopping and visited with the locals. In Mahogany Bay, we had a planned day. But somehow missed our point of pickup for a tour to see the Read Less

The ship was not the nicest, and housekeeping should do a better job of ensuring the cleanliness of the rooms. My nephew got injured on board the ship and bled a bit on the sheets, but the bed was remade with the bloody sheets even though it was pointed out to the cleaning crew. Overall, the staff on board the Breeze were totally responsive, courteous and worthy of a four star rating. However, Carnival's customer service leaves a lot to be desired, and is pretty non-existent once you disembark from their ship. During a shore excursions with Carnival's Costa Maya partner my 13-year old son was attacked by a dog on the resort. All the staff, including the security, stood around watching but did nothing to stop the attack. The ship's doctor was very responsive when we got back on-board and recommended that we follow up with a series of rabies treatment since they did not store the medicines on board ship. On our return to the States, the county health department agreed and insisted that my son's wound be infiltrated with immunoglobulin (injections all around a 10-inch wound...lost count after the 9th shot). He then had to go back to the ER for 3 additional treatments with the rabies vaccine. Rabies is a serious disease that is almost always fatal if the proper precautions are not taken. However, since the immunoglobulin can only be administered in the emergency room in my county, the cost of treatment is not inexpensive. The savings in taking a less expensive cruise line is not far overshadow by the cost of his treatment. While I get that Carnival may not be ultimately responsible, one would think that they would have a clear means to address the safety of their customers with their partner organizations. I have asked Carnival repeatedly to direct me to the right authority. Each time, they reply with a generic message with yet another email address from which I get no response. I would caution anyone to be mindful of Carnival's callous disregard to ensuring the safety of its customers. Read Less

We had 3 rooms, a group of 10. We have sailed with Royal Caribbean and decided to give Carnival a shot this year; what a mistake. Everyone who worked on this ship looked mad all the time, employees would run you over, would not get out of your way when you were walking throughout the decks, pool areas and dining areas. The bartenders looked miserable and angry all the time, it was evident they did not want to be there. We had purchased the Cheers package, and yet the bartenders tried to limit every single thing you could order. If we ordered a drink, and didn't want bottom shelf liquor, we were told no, or just completely ignored until we had to demand the bartender to make our drink the way we wanted. After going back and forth with the bartender, we explained, per Carnival policy, you're allowed to have a drink of up to $20, therefore, allowing us to have top shelf liquor drinks. Although you are limited to 15 drinks per day, we were able to reach 11, and we stopped due to the fact they were using so much syrup, it would literally have your stomach hurting (by the way, not even tipsy off these drinks, very suspect). The Food: Absolutely horrible. The best food on this ship was the brisket from Guys BBQ and the burgers from Guys Burgers. The buffet was an absolute joke, the dine in was the same horrible food they were putting on the buffet. The pizza, well lets just say, that pizza didn't live long enough to make it to the oven, it was so dry and over cooked. Then comes desert; nobody can mess up desert, right? Well, Carnival Breeze even managed to mess up the desert, which was also disgusting. Hey, at least the Ceaser Salad was good. Instead of just hopping on here to leave a bad review, I did contact Carnival directly to inform them of our experience and also all the other passengers who were mummering about the horrible experience. I wanted to let Carnival know directly so that they could focus on what matters most. Some times, it's all about changing the small things to make big experiences matter, like a smile when you are being served, having a bartender who not only smiles, but listens to what you want. Friendliness was the main factor missing from the experience, and it was very odd that it was the entire ship. This experience just didn't feel like a 7 day vacation, it felt like we were a nuisance to everyone and really felt out of place. Unfortunately for Carnival, this will be my last cruise with them. I will gladly stick with Royal Caribbean as my experiences with Royal Caribbean are just what their name says, Royalty. Our group is also considering Norwegian as we have heard amazing things about them as well. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see the pink sand of Bermuda. Unfortunately Hurricane Jerry wanted to go there too. So it's still on our bucket list. It came as no surprise when I got the email 2 days before we sailed that the itinerary had been changed. We went to Puerto Rico , Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos. Turks and Caicos was our favorite. The color of the water was absolutely amazing. About the ship....well I think it needs a bit of a facelift. It's looking old, the public areas were very narrow. My husband has to use a scooter and at times it got very narrow. I think the worse thing was the casino. They allow smoking in the casino and it was awful. We usually play in the evening on other cruises, but the smoke was so bad we did not. For sure I would not go on this ship again. Read Less

This is my 3rd cruise on the Breeze, once in 2014 and I decided I would not sail her again. Then my sister and I were looking for a cheap getaway, the pricing was good, so with some hesitation I booked the Breeze in July. We had a great time, the food was a marked improvement, entertainment good and service excellent. Then I booked the Bermuda cruise for September 21, with another couple. The itinerary was changed because of the hurricane. No problem, weather happens. The food was just mediocre at best. The steakhouse took forever and my husband got a tough ribeye, 2 of us didn't even get the meal we ordered. The Italian restaurant I have to say was the best meal we had all week. NOTE to VEGANS very few options for you, unless you want too eat pasta all week. We had no problems with the service on board. Embarkation was quick Debarkation was a nightmare with their new procedures. Everyone complained. It took us 2 and a half hours to get off the ship. This was about my 35th cruise, I have lost count and I am a platinum member with Carnival, but at this point I will stick to other lines.. The entertainment was okay, we mostly went to the comedy club. We spent time in the casion, it was very crowded and smokey.. I found the service good, everyone was very friendly and helpful.

We typically go on 2 to 3 cruises a year. Normally, we use Norwegian and Royal Caribbean.We chose Carnival this cruise because we went with a group of 6 friends. The embarkation and entertainment were the only things on our cruise that was not a disappointment. We bought the premium drink package which is a terrible RIP off! One ounce liquor servings only. The bartenders were very slow, oftentimes rude and not willing to make anything but their standard limited menu drinks. I asked for a Sammy Sosa drink. The bartender became indignant and refused to make the drink. I asked why. He replied it had too much liquor in it and that wasn't allowed. I said it only has two liquors in it. I showed him on his drink card a rum punch Carnival was offering that had 3 liquors in it. Then I showed him a drink of the day Carnival was offering called an MF er that had 6 liquors in it. He then proceeded to tell me Carnival only serves or makes drinks that are on the drink menu. I pointed out that a multitude of drinks they were serving were not listed! Such as, seven & seven, gin & tonic, screw drivers, etc. I asked for a Jameson neat , the bartender served it in a 1 once shot glass. I asked for 2 of them, he said I had to wait 5 minutes to order another drink. Although, a man at the end of the bar( which the bartender called by name ) ordered a Jack Daniels neat and the bartender gave him a 12 ounce rock glass full of Jack Daniels! Not very classy in my opinion after all the fabrications he gave me! My wife and I went to guest services and asked to speak to the bar manager. I told him our experience with his bartender. Also,I told him, we paid $600 for 2 premium drink packages. He backed up the bartender and his disrespectful actions and proceeded to give me the run around. He said we're here to make money! I explained to him I was in the food and beverage business 50 years! I said there are approximately 34 shots in a liter. So at ounce servings and $8 per drink, Carnival allows most guests (but some special people get much more, not sure how to become one of these people) Carnival makes $ 272 per bottle which is approximately 9 times the cost of the bottle. I told him that's more than making money... that's called making a killing! He asked for our room number. Nothing ever came of that diversion! The Lido Buffet food was of poor quality with little variety. Many times reused the next day under a different name. The Sapphire restuarant service was very slow with a poor selection, hardly any better than the buffet. All 8 people in our group received cold food! Non smoking areas were not enforced. The restrooms were not very easy to locate and not cleaned very often. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it left from our usual cruise port and was going to Bermuda. The port was Canaveral which we find exceptionally efficient! Embarkation processing was as fast as we could walk. Cabins were ready by 1:30 and our luggage showed up prior to dinner (we did not have FTTF or elite status). Cabin stewards offer AM, PM, or twice a day servicing, extra pillows and towels when they come to greet you. Our steward was nice and did a pretty good job. The tide bar and blue iguana bar seemed the best at getting a drink fastest, though we never found issues with getting a drink (except in the MDR for dinner) even if the bars were busy. The buffet for lunch was different. It seemed to be busy all the time. The options for meals were pretty small (except dessert during the chocolate extravaganza - wow). Guy's burgers were awesome as always and the service fast there. The taco/burrito bar at the Blue Iguana were wonderful too. Dinner in the Steakhouse was fabulous! I highly recommend it! Our servers were Malana and Pani - Wonderful. The alchemy bar is great for martinis - Vera was the best bartender!! Red Frog Pub was fun as was the server we most often saw - Anthonie. He's hilarious and a treat all his own. We enjoyed the music of Liz & Lucas - they were really really good! Unfortunately they did not often play in the evenings when we were in the Red Frog Pub or Atrium. We'd liked to have seen more of them at night. If you get the chance to see The Sea Sharps with Surplus of Diggity - do. They are remarkable. The female singer is top notch as is the brass section! We usually enjoy the casino on cruises, but this one had such poor ventilation that we never used it at all. It's situated in the middle of deck 5 and unfortunately you must go through it to get from one end to the other - there is no walk around hall. If the doors are locked to outside (which was the case most of our trip due to winds), you have to go up/down stairs, cross over then back down/up to the other side to get across without going through the horrific smell of the casino. The one and only time we went through it we had to go back to the cabin to change clothes right away. It was rough. Our cruise stopped in Bermuda and Grand Turk. We rented a taxi for a tour in Bermuda and they did a great job. It's a very interesting and beautiful place. In Grand Turk we rented a golf cart which worked well for driving around the island. We also stopped at Jack's Shack which was fun to see. The beaches are beautiful and all open to the public to enjoy.

We chose this ship because it sailed from Port Canaveral (Orlando) to Bermuda. That was the ONLY reason. My previous experience with Carnival was "lowest common denominator". I've been on about 20 cruises with Norwegian, Holland America, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. Here are my "positive" notes: (1) fastest ever embarkation, (2) arrived at cabin 1:30PM with luggage waiting, (3) lifeboat drill used fast ship-card check in, (4) good quality balcony & deck furniture, (5) beach towels supplied in cabin, (6) cabin well lit (no struggle to read in bed), (7) excellent cake station in buffet - custom cut for you. Previous reviews have criticized the food as bland and uninteresting (and somewhere I've seen Carnival allude to their "hamburger and fried chicken" loving passengers. So I carried a bottle of Herbes de Provence which was unused after the 2nd day. We found the dinner menu quite adequate, imaginative and comparable to other cruise lines. While the Melting Chocolate Cake was the star of the dessert menu, there were other tasty selections such as a nicely done creme brulee. I was a bit disappointed in their preparation of mushrooms. We liked the layout of the buffet - relatively small "rooms" with buffet and nearby tables. No walking 50 yards around all the stations, then trying to find your seatmates. The first night we went late to the show, sat near the starboard door, something wet was dripping on my head and my partner was shivering. We left. During a talk by ship managers, a passenger remarked on the small number of Carnival shows ("on every ship"), and she would like to see more variety (as a frequent Carnival guest). The ship acknowledged the complaint, stated a new show is in the works, they are expensive to produce, and the existing ones have new personnel that bring a new look to an old show. The production shows are a big reason I cruise, so I'm not in a hurry to sail with Carnival again to see the same old thing. The band Sea Squared (if I have that right) was very good. We were particularly impressed with a string trio performing on the central stairway. A lot of talent (of course), with excellent variety., Definitely not "lowest common denominator". They were great. Debarkation went very well. We had to wait about 15 minutes with luggage in hand because the terminal got backed up. Absolutely no problem getting on elevators. We are happy!

When I first booked my cruise on the Breeze I needed a quick get away and was happy it fit my schedule. I did very little research on the ship as I was fairly confident it would be a set up from my prior cruise on the Miracle. The final few days leading up I noticed on social media Breeze has quite the following so I allowed myself to get a excited. Unfortunately, if it weren’t for the friends I vacation with my sailing on the Breeze would’ve been a complete disappointment. As a vacationer I’m pretty easy going. I enjoy relaxing and having some good meals and drinks along the way. Sadly, the Breeze failed me in each category. First, my entire group was very disappointed by the entertainment as a whole. Several members mentioned there “wasn’t much to do on the ship.” I made an effort to enjoy the Spa and while the services were decent I was amazed that Carnival were willing to charge for a day pass when a good portion of the equipment was not working correctly. Now for the most disappointing part. The food was atrocious. The buffet, when it was actually open, was of terrible quality. So bad, we all decided to skip the place all together. The pizza counter struggled to keep up with demand and served lame half pizzas that you would see at a theme park. Leaving the burger joint which admittedly was pretty decent and the main dining room as the only none up-charge meals. For me the main highlight from prior cruises are the experiences you get from the nightly dining. Well, on the Breeze the only experiences I got stained the whole trip. Every the meal took 2.5+ hours to be served. More often than not my requests would go ignored such as asking for a second appetizer. Note, I wasn’t asking for crazy quantities of food just an additional appetizer. So bad that on one occasion I was told the kitchen is closed. To top it of the food we did receive was tasteless across the board. I was so fed up I gave the sushi place a try and while it was okay the menu was ridiculously limited. Not all can be bad though right? Surely with a little booze everything will be alright. For this cruise I sprung on the drink package which is suppose to include all drinks up to $20. Without a doubt the worst decision of the cruise. It wasn’t as simple as ordering a drink and getting it. Every time it was a hassle which usually revolved around the bartender informing me what I can have not what I want. I’m sorry but for $858/2 adults your drinks shouldn’t be limited to premixed well garbage. I purchased the premium internet in order to complete a few things for work. During the 7 day sailing I was able to use the Internet well for maybe 30 minutes. It was a complete failure. Lastly, the Western Caribbean itinerary needs some reworking. Costa Maya is extremely limited as a port and the Belize tender situation is painful. I would not recommend this ship. Read Less

Embarkation was really easy with plenty of shire staff to answer questions, we didn’t have to wait long for even though we had arrived about an hour early. We chose an inside cabin as we knew we wouldn’t be in it for that long. Our Stateroom Stewart was lovely and our cabin was always kept extremely clean and well maintained, love the different towel animals left everyday. We did three organise excursions: The Secret River - very interesting and informative excursion deep under the caves in Cozumel, lovely clear, cool water and an amazing memory. Laughed a lot. Maya Ruins - Belize, quite a long bus drive on potholed roads. However the river cruise on a speed boat and then the walk to the ruins, again very informative guide who knew her history. I was amazed that e were allowed on climb up to the top - awesome view. Routan - we took a taxi/boat to Little French Key, an amazing small island that is also a rescue centre. This felt like paradise and it wasn’t very busy with lots to do. Mayan Coast - last Knute decision to go and swim with the dolphins, I was a bit apprehensive about this as I thought they might there as performers for us tourists but after enquiring they really do look after their animals with care. This was a Greta experience and so glad we did it in the end. We generally only ate breakfast and diner and I cannot complain about any of the meals and our server was extremely helpful. We only ate at the Lido area a couple of times and again nothing wrong with any of the choices we made. We had diner at the 555 Steakhouse one night and this was lovely, although the steak in the main dining area was just as good, it was much more personal and luxurious in the atmosphere. The entertainment was outstanding and the main playlist production theatre shows were amazing, I understand that due to the stage manager having an accident that two of the main production shows had to be changed to concert shows but rather than cancelling the cast put on a last minute show for us - well done guys. I loved the fact that there was live music at different parts of the ship and they didn’t overwhelm each other, from the country singers, trio of violinists, the High Seas group, piano man, comedy club...I loved it all.

I was on the Carnival Breeze this past August for a family and friends vacation and I am concerned about the decisions of some members of the security crew... My 17 and 20 year old daughters had to make a complaint because some teenagers were doing prank calls and knocking on their cabin door in the middle of the night. During debarkation they were both hold back on the ship by security. Since I walked out a few persons before my daugthers I waited a little further on the bridge leading to the terminal. Not seeing them arrive I was very worried so I am glad I was able to make my way back to the exit of the ship and wait with them (note here that nobody wanted to tell us why my daugthers where not allowed to leave the ship). As per Carnival's web site "Guests Under the Age of 21 MUST travel with a relative or guardian of 25 years of age or older". How come security was allowed to hold my daugthers without even notifying the parent or guardian (aka me in this case)? Are they so important that they can pass over parental authority? I called Carnival when I got home and apparently there's nothing wrong with that situation... I even sent a message to John Heald who replied that "because there was a 20-year-old sister with her that she was considered to be an appropriate adult". That being said, eveything else was as great as usual. The cruise director MarQ was really energetic and enthusiastic. Our cabin steward Korn and MDR waiter Alex were exceptional. They were always making everything they could to be ahead of our needs. My husband and I took the "behind the fun" tour. It was absolutely fantastic! I do recommend this tour to everybody. Since we were cruising just ahead of the hurricane Dorian, the captain did multiple announcements to inform the passengers about the situation. He made sure to keep us safe at all time. Read Less

My wife and I took our daughters (ages 15 and 11) on the Carnival Breeze out of Port Canaveral (August 17, 2019 sailing). We've cruised on Carnival before (Pride, Vista), as well as Norwegian (Getaway) and Royal Caribbean (Harmony). Like all of our previous cruises, we had a terrific time on the Breeze and I just don't get the negative reviews. We flew into Orlando the night before our cruise. We rented a car at MCO and stayed at the Courtyard in Lake Nona and highly recommend that property (new, clean, spacious, free parking, free breakfast). We drove to Port Canaveral the next morning, after making a pit stop at the liquor store to get some wine (Carnival allows 1 bottle/stateroom (1 less than Royal!)). I dropped my wife and daughters off at the terminal and then returned the rental car which was nearby on Mullet Street. The rental shuttle was dropping off folks from the ships, but would not take folks to the ship until it got clearance. As we arrived early, I just took a short Uber ride back to the terminal and met the family. Even though we arrived very early, we were still required to wait for our assigned boarding group. As soon as we boarded, we went straight to the Excursion Desk so I could sign my daughter and me up for the "Behind the Fun Ultimate Tour." They typically only have two groups of 16 for this tour and you have to sign up on board - no advance reservations. The tour on the Breeze was $95/person (it varies on ships). As it was my daughter's birthday gift, I'm glad we were able to get in (we were #16 and 17). The ship was very nice - yes, there are some signs of wear, but the ship has been in service since 2012 (and it did have a refurb since). This Dream-class ship was very similar to the Vista-class, and I think I prefer it to the Vista-class (especially the main theater). We grabbed lunch at Cucina del Capitano (complimentary for lunch) and Guy's Pig & Anchor (awesome) as there is no way we would go to the crazy Marketplace Lido. As promised, our rooms were available at 1:30 PM. We had a balcony and our girls were in the interior directly across the hall - just get extra keys so everyone can have access to the rooms. Like on Harmony of the Seas, I discovered that booking two rooms is cheaper than us all staying in the balcony room - crazy, right? Twice the space, bathrooms, etc. - so much better! After unpacking and the muster drill, we were enjoying vacation! First day was a sea day and we enjoyed the pool and waterpark. We never had a problem getting 4 chairs together close to the pool and we didn't get there especially early. There was always ample chairs available (even if you had to go up a deck). Amber Cove was OK. We just went to the Carnival area (pool, zip lines, slide, etc.). The shore excursions didn't particularly excite us and we just wanted to relax. The zip lines are $20/person (maybe $10 for child?) but we've zip-lined previously so we just did the slides and pool. This was my least favorite port. We didn't venture out ourselves, especially given the issues on the D.R. with tourists. St. Thomas is always nice. We got tickets for the cable car to Paradise Point. We were going to do it on our own as it is very close to the dock, but I saw the shore excursion through Carnival was actually cheaper (and you still just do it on your own). Have always wanted to see the view up there and it was nice. We didn't stay up there very long - all there is is a restaurant/bar and some shops. We returned to the ship for lunch and then took a cab to Emerald Beach (right near the airport). This was the third time we've been to St. Thomas with our girls, so we tried a different beach than Magens Bay. I very much recommend Emerald Beach - not at all crowded and there were facilities, a restaurant, and a bar. San Juan - as we docked right in Old San Juan, we walked around Old San Juan and the fortresses (we didn't actually go into them). We were disappointed the umbrellas were taken down from Fortaleza Street, but that was from the political protests. After our walk, we took a taxi to Isla Verde for the beach (right near the Embassy Suites). Another nice beach - not crowded, facilities, food choices, etc. This beach was recommended by a local driver - we were actually planning to go to Condado Beach but was told it was much rougher there. Grand Turk was probably my favorite day. We rented a golf cart from Omar. We did not make a reservation; we just got off the ship as soon as possible and briskly walked there (walk through the shops and parking lot) and I asked where Omar was and he was right ahead! We paid $75 for a 4-person cart. Not sure if folks with reservations got screwed as there did not seem to be a whole lot of golf carts there, but we got one! Just get his number before you leave in case of any mechanical issue. There was a very basic map on the cart, but it was minimally helpful. We planned to go to Pillory Beach and sort of went too far, but we were eventually able to find it and it did not disappoint! This is a great beach with a resort right there (again, facilities, food, drinks) and the water was crystal clear and amazing. There was a gentleman with a horse (Black Shadow) and we paid only $20 (each) for our girls to get a horseback ride along the beach and in the water (and it was a decent amount of time/distance) - so much cheaper than any excursion where you pay way more than that! Pillory Beach is so much better than the beach right there where the ship docks - way overcrowded! We then took the golf cart to Governor's Beach, which was much smaller (just beyond the beach where the ship docks) - just look for the rusted shipwreck. We did go to an area beyond it and we were the only people there, but it was rocky (but still beautiful). We returned the golf cart (we had to put just a little bit of gas in it to return it full) and spent about 10 minutes in the pool at Margaritaville. It was just about 5:30 (all aboard time) and we got back on the ship. We did late seating in the Blush Restaurant. Our table was in a lousy location (between a wall where the service station was and a window (but it was dark at dinner time)), so we requested a change and the next night we had a great table location between the aft windows and the main open area. Our servers (Ruben and Larry) were fantastic! We have found the food on Carnival to surpass that on NCL and Royal. The entertainment was good. Comedy shows in the Limelight were just OK - I've been to better - it just depends what comedians are on the ship that week. We always enjoy the guitar player (mainly in the Red Frog Pub - Dave) on the ships. We went to 88 Keys and Flick in the Ovation Theater - better than I expected (Royal and NCL do better production shows) - still enjoyable. We went to Hasbro the Game Show (again, we couldn't get selected to participate - darn!) and Lip Sync Battle (it was great the week we were there). MarQ was a great Cruise Director - I found him as good as Matt Mitchum. The Fun Squad were all great. We enjoyed the ropes course. My wife and I were able to negotiate a good deal for a couple's massage (I had never done that before and it was quite great). The "Behind the Fun Ultimate Tour" was worth the money - it is on the last sea day and you get some gifts with it (including a group photo on the ship's bow, and a group photo in the bridge with the Captain). We accessed the galley, bridge (met the Captain - Captain Rocco Lubrano - he was our captain on the Vista in 2017!), crew mess, crew lounge, engine control room, laundry room, HR room (with photos of crew quarters), back stage of the theater. Our room steward (Jason) was fantastic - we requested service two times a day and the rooms were always well taken care of. Please be sure to tip your room steward and waiters extra on the last day of the cruise - they work so hard! We had an extra dinner one night at Bonsai Sushi and it was excellent and had a great atmosphere. Guy's Burgers are addictive (although I think I only had 1!), and the BlueIguana has outstanding burritos/bowls/tacos (and a breakfast burrito). We had breakfast in the dining room every morning and it was great. The Sea Day brunches are also incredible. While we like Norwegian's freestyle cruising philosophy, and Royal has the most innovative ships, Carnival, in our opinion, has the best food, the most fun (great Cruise Directors and activities, etc.), and gives the best value. In the end, it comes to what date works for a cruise and the price. The Breeze worked for us and we had a wonderful cruise. We did have an issue with our shower (water pressure and drainage) - we reported it and it was resolved almost immediately - great service. Disembarkation was a bit delayed so we just hung out in the Limelight - not Carnival's fault. We rented a car again (as we drove down to West Palm Beach to visit family) from Alamo (same as before). I took the shuttle to the building and got the car quickly and picked up the family at the terminal. We were sad to see the Breeze disappear in the rear view mirror . . . Read Less

This cruise was amazing! Ports were Amber Cove, St. Virgin Island, PR, and Grand Turk. It took only 45 minutes to get abroad the ship. People were very friendly. The workers are great and always speaking. Not one employee was on a cell phone the entire cruise unless they were high in authority. They work extremely hard. The food was good all over except the dining room food quality food appeared not top notch, which was fine. Plenty of other places to eat...and guess what you can try everything on the menu! The comedy shows were great....Just June and Billy Washington, were funny as heck! There were always plenty of deck chairs on the Lido deck and it was 3742 guest aboard the ship. Our cruise Director MarQ, was great and funny as heck! Some people did not care for him, but heck, who can make up jokes in a second, so kudos to him! From the all white party, to the Serenity Adult Only section, to the "Chicken Sandwich" at the deli, I thought I was eating a Popeye's chicken sandwich that everyone is going crazy over! I will say there were children, but many played in the waterpark and it was not an issue. I just believe Carnival should make the public pools alittle larger and create an adult only pool. They now have lifeguards at each pool which is a plus. The best excursions were St. Thomas, Kon Tik Tik Tour, was great...water was BEAUTIFUl and plenty of rum punch. We opted to take a tour on Grand Turk with a beach excursion and so glad we did, which allowed us to go to a private beach. They served us their island spice cake which was good and complimentary water. A bus was present to take any persons back to the ship when they were ready. I am a beach girl, so I stayed! I loved the Carnival Breeze and is in the process of booking again in August 2021 for a girls trip. However I will say Disembarkation was a mess...only TWO customs workers for 4000 persons....trick...get a porter to handle you luggage...lines move quicker! Great ship, people, food, entertainment, excursions, casinos, movies outside with movie blankets and popcorn! Read Less

We have cruised with Carnival, Royal Caribbean and NCL in the past and chose this cruise base on price. This was our second Carnival cruise and was a lot better than our first experience on the Dream. I had a lot of reservations before boarding based on reviews I read here but we did not experience any of the issues I read about. Embarkation was easy and we were on board by 1130. Our cabin was nice and clean and everything worked as it should. Saw a lot of complaints about the air not being cold enough, but our was working great and would cool the room down as much as we needed it to. Our room steward was awesome. One of the best we have had in our handful of cruises. He always made sure the room was clean and stocked with towels and was apologetic anytime we came back and the room was not done up yet. Not that we were concerned, but it was nice to hear he was and tool pride in making sure he did his job well. The ship itself was really nice and didnt experience any issue. The shows we were to were excellent, the comedy club was fun. The pools, even though small, did not seem to be overly crowded whenever we went, even on sea days much to our surprise. The same for the water park as well. The only disappointment we had was to food selection, especially for kids. It was not obvious that you could get chicken nuggets in the Lido. You had to ask for them instead of them having a dedicated area for kid friendly foods like we have experienced on other cruise lines. The Sapphire restaurant was great and the food selection there was nice. We experienced the steakhouse for the first time on this cruise and it was nice as well. Our head server in the Sapphire was awesome. Took care of my kids and made sure they were happy with what they had. We have always been skeptical of Carnival as they have the reputation of being the party boat, but we did not experience this on this cruise for the most part and we really enjoyed it. We have young kids and dont want to deal with all the drunk people all the time. Although there was one night at 2am we were woken up by a group of drunks walking down the hallway screaming and yelling, but thats it. All in all we were really happy with this cruise and will be looking for future Carnival cruises now based on this experience. I guess my advice for those that read this is dont let the negative review ruin your cruise or swade you from trying out Carnival or any other cruise for the first time. You can make you own experience and have your own fun in your own way. Read Less

We, my wife and I, really enjoyed all aspects of this ship.. It's a larger ship, (130,000 Gross Tons), but so very easy to find your way around. It follows the "lay out" of most Carnival ships. Our cabin (balcony) was excellent. We prefer the forward cabins on the larger ships as it is easier disembarking. We try to get next to an elevator and then just catch it down to disembark. . The dining was very enjoyable. Our "team" knew us by name and our preferences, after the first night. Most of our entertainment was done in the casino, which was one of the best run we have experienced. All the "Hosts", including the Premier Hosts were attentive and very helpful !! We did take an excursion in Amber Cove, D.R., "The Outback Dominican Experience". Well worth the money.. We would enjoy cruising on the Breeze again... Please look for it. Read Less

My family and I had 3 balcony cabins (9235, 9231, and 9227) on the Breeze last week that we paid a quite a bit of money for, considering what we typically pay for a balcony on Carnival.  1. Embarkation was a Breeze - no pun intended 2. Food -  I am by no means a "foodie" but I paid a couple days to buy food at the Red Frog Pub and the sushi restaurant for the following reasons. The food quality on the Lido deck was horrible- a sloppy mess of a display and the food looked like something you would "throw out in the yard to feed the farm animals".  The pre-made sandwiches as opposed to the made to order ones of the past was disappointing and even the pizza was mediocre at best on this ship. The dining room basically has the same ole menu for the past 20 years and let's not forget the absolutely tasteless desserts.  3. Internet - no complimentary or at least minute packaged internet service just for airline check in on the last day of the cruise (once again this used to work for me in the past). 4. Entertainment - what happened to the orchestra/band in the main auditorium for major productions? The playlist used in more recent years "waters down" the shows. Comedy is subjective so you'll have to be the judge of that yourself. Shows were typical. 5. Platinum gift - Carnival should be embarrassed to give it's platinum and diamond guests that cheap little lanyard that isn't even as nice as the ones they were selling for $6.95 on embarkation day.  This is by far the cheapest "gift" they have given and although it's a "gift", I would rather they cut it out completely than to receive a dollar store trinket as a thank you for being a loyal customer.  Please, if they can save themselves a few dollars by not insulting guests with something like a sub-par lanyard, just stop this now!  Maybe it's just me and I am being ungrateful but you can't give out relatively decent gifts for years to your platinum and diamond customers who spend thousands of dollars with you, and then switch to a cheap little piece of junk, and expect not to raise a few eyebrows. 6. Serenity deck was nice, nothing special. 7. Ports of Call a. Amber Cove - stayed right in the port are and had a great time. Water slide was fast and fun, Next time I think I'll leave that to the "kids" as it was a bit too much for me lol My family paid $20 for the zip line and did it a couple times. we ordered bottled beverages and I don't think we ordered any food.   b. St. Thomas - had a great day at Coki beach. Rented chairs and umbrellas ($20 for 2 chairs and 1 umbrella). c. San Juan - walked around and shopped in old San Juan. Wanted to see the "umbrella" street but we were told that the umbrellas were taken down as the street was the idea of the wife of the much hated governor. d. Grand Turk - stayed at the pool area at Margaritta ville. It was fun for a while before it turned really "rachet" and seedy with all the twerking and grinding etc. going on. It was definitely not a kid friendly scene and there were plenty of kids there to which some of the "adults" who thought they were in a strip club, totally ignored. 8. On the plus side, our cabin steward, Brian and guest services manager, Mirella were both, accommodating, helpful and very professional.  Kudos to them. 9. Debarkation was a Breeze as well. Now for my real complaint!  We paid good money for 3 balcony cabins for this 7 day cruise.  Unfortunately, we lost 2.5 days of balcony use due to maintenance and extremely strong paint smells.  This really amounts to poor planning by the Carnival team and my family and I had to suffer the consequences.  Guest services called us one night and asked if it was OK if they performed some maintenance on our balconies on the next port day.  We agreed to this as we were going to be in port and figured they'd be done by the time we got back on the ship.  Needless to say, that was not the case and we couldn't use the balcony that evening and the next day they were at it again.  It seemed that the first day, they primed the balcony and the next day they did the actual painting.  On the second day of our non-balcony usage, when we got back on the ship, the crew was still on the balcony and when they left, a couple hours later, the paint smell was so strong that we couldn't even open the balcony door for the entire night.  We pay for a balcony so we can enjoy the fresh ocean air and not only do we spend a great deal of time sitting on the balcony ready during the day, we sleep with the door open at night.  We lost precious time enjoying our balconies and I find it really bad business that the only compensation my family and I received (after consistently calling and voicing our concerns) was a free dinner.  If we didn't care about using the balcony, we could have saved quite a bit of money by booking 3 interior cabins instead of 3 balconies.  This is probably the first time in years that I gave a mostly negative review. I always have fun with my family and this cruise didn't change that. These are just my observations and hopefully it will give you a little insight and help you with your planning process. Read Less
