We wanted to sail on the Breeze before it leaves Galveston. We have sailed 3 times on the Dream and wanted to compare the two ships. We loved the Breeze. We always enjoy the Cove balcony rooms and room 2365 was very nice and very convenient. The entertainment was excellent-there was live music all over the ship. The Red Frog pub is lots of fun. The atrium is a great place to wait for dinner. Anytime dining was well organized and we usually had only a short wait for a table to two. The ship was packed full but the staff was always professional and helpful. Breakfast every day in the dining room was delicious. We also enjoyed very early room service for coffee on our balcony. The lido pools were very busy on sea days but the Serenity Deck was a pleasant retreat. The Cloud 9 Spa is beautiful and I enjoyed using my week long pass for the various special rooms and thermo pool. All the food was good-the pasta restaurant for lunch, the barbecue on sea days, and the convenient light meals in the Ocean Plaza. The dining room staff were excellent and made sure our food met our needs. The shows were very nice and the large Texas Crowd enjoyed the special attention they received. The Military Celebratiion was outstanding with over 75 Military and first responders being recognized. Very Patiotic and touching. Thank you Carnival for seven wonderful days. Read Less

We cruised with another couple we have cruises with previously. This time we did not bring any of our children, and we had a great time! There were plenty of kids on the ship...but thankfully we weren’t in charge of any of them. I was surprised how many kids were being served alcohol. I have never witnessed that on any of my previous cruises, and it was concerning. We upgraded to a spa interior cabin. It was a great location. I loved being up that high. We went to the spa pool a couple of times, but we didn’t really take advantage of everything the spa offered. I was disappointed that the special spa shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion weren’t restocked innour bathroom. I suppose I could have asked for more, but I don’t know if I would have been able to get more for free. My only real complaint was the smoking area. I’ve never been on a ship with a smoking area that was as large and on the Breeze. Half of deck 11 (the same desk as our cabin) allowed smoking. It was very thick and hard to breathe. Even the nonsmoking side was contaminated. There were also other smoking areas. It felt like we were always around it. Some smokers paid no attention to the designated smoking areas and smoked wherever they wanted to. I didn’t see any crew members ask them to extenguish their cigarette or move to the designated smoking areas. Read Less

We chose this cruise for my granddaughter's 18th birthday, high school graduation, and for me the end of a hectic school year. I knew the traffic from Houston to Galveston could be insanity, so we went in a day before. We used the Galveston Express service - if you use them be prepared for lots of stops (like a city bus). We stayed at the Scottish Inn in Galveston. I had read about the hotel and that you could walk over to the Ferry and ride for free. The hotel and staff were very nice, room clean, pool comfortable, and the walk to the ferry was 5 min. We rode the ferry just a little before sunset and saw dolphins and the sun set on the ocean. A perfect start to the trip. There was no food close so we had to order from a local pizza place, it took an hour for the food but it was fine. The hotel provides shuttle service to your ship for free, 10 min ride. 5 stars for the Scottish Inn. Once at the ship our board time was 11:30 am, we easily found our area to wait and were boarded by 11:00 the process took maybe 10 min start to finish. Our room would not be ready until 1:30 so we quickly found food. I MUST NOTE not only was the staff friendly, but so were the other cruisers. I have NEVER been anywhere for a week where everyone was kind to strangers and each other. It was truly a pleasant experience. Our Cabin 11220 (Spa Cabins) was bigger than I expected and OH the BEDS !!! I like a firm bed, my granddaughter likes soft - the beds were perfect for each of us and I would have brought the bed, pillows, and bedding home with me if I could have. We did some exploring and just a few feet down the hall was a port door, we went out and found the very front of the ship on the 11th deck - there was never anyone there, other than us. What a nice place to drink our coffee and plan our day. Our room steward GREG was friendly and wonderful. Our cruise director - Schwartz - was everywhere, I swear the man is a robot - every time we heard the ding on the loud speaker we knew Schwartz was going to be there with his "GOOD MORNING CARNIVAL BREEZE FAMILY....." We ate at the FARENHEIT 555 STEAK RESTAURANT the first night aboard it was amazing - it cost extra but was so worth it. I will point out for first time cruisers THERE IS NO CASH USED ON BOARD THE SHIP. Alcohol and soft drinks are also not included - the average alcoholic umbrella drink was $8, beer $5 and soft drinks $2.50 just for your planning. Of all the food on board our favorite was Guys Burgers and the buffet. The dining rooms were ok, but they were so busy that sometimes orders were not complete and some of the food way over cooked. We liked the buffets because there was a huge turn over in the food and it did not seem over cooked. We went to a show every night in the Ovation Theater and loved them all - first class entertainment. The ship it's self is beautiful. We were worried because of the immense size - but after a few days we easily found our way around and managed to get our exercise in, averaging 10,000 steps a day. There were 4713 passengers and 1400 crew on board, however, we never felt crowded except for the first excursion day and getting off the ship. SEASICKNESS - I am prone to getting the green face witrh rocking motions - the ship was very stable and there was only one time when a small storm moved in that I felt a bit green, I took my Bonine and went to bed, next day was perfect, I did feel the motion of the ship but never enough to be uncomfortable except for that one evening. There were trivia events and all kinds of contests etc. Kimberly ran the morning trivia which we found we could not miss - her energy flowed over to us all and made for a great start to the day. Be sure to look at your Fun Times every night to plan for the next day. There is a Dive-In movie theater on the Lido deck and we watched movies everynight. So much to do - so little energy do do it. Excursions - Rose Hall Jamaica was a beautiful trip but I felt was misrepresented. We thought it was a sort of haunted mansion trip, but there are only 4 items in the great house that are original and it was a bit of a disappointment, with LOTS of walking. Be sure to try the jerked chicken in the port stands - it's amazing. We gave the tour a 3 out of 5. Our 2nd excursion was Sea Safari with kayaking and stingray city - I cannot express enough how incredible this excursion was. Zack and Chris are perfect tour guides and very caring and helpful - I have some mobility issues - they worked with me and I managed to go kayaking, and swim with the sting rays - a bucket list item checked off. We gave this excursion 5+++++++ off the charts. 3rd on the tour was the Cozumel Mayan Ball Game and show. TAKE YOUR BUG SPRAY, this is in the middle of the jungle and there are no see-um bugs. This tour was wonderful and easy. We were blessed by a witch doctor, saw warriors play an interesting game, the tour provided huge fans to cool us off, and cool wet towels. Very thoughtful - it was HOT. There was tequila tasting and a lunch show. This was a long tour, we enjoyed it very much. 5 stars. NOTE: Our excursions were booked through Carnival - I found out that if you book through Carnival and you are injured - your medical requirements are covered. Not so with private company excursions. For my peace of mind I do not mind spending a few extra dollars. Last day on board - we had to be off the ship by 8:30 am, this was a surprise and it caused a bit of a transport issue. It took no more than 15 min to clear customs and debark. We did not buy alcohol or have anything to declare. Our shuttle was not due to arrive until 11:30 and it was way hot - the shuttle could not come early so we checked out a Carnival Bus - they had room and took us directly to the airport for a small fee - so worth it. NEXT TIME WE USE CARNIVAL TRANSPORT. Our cruise was far and above what we expected. For an 18 year old and a 63 year old it was the perfect choice. If you are bored on the Carnival Breeze then you are not looking out of your cabin. There is something to do for everyone. THANK YOU CARNIVAL FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE. Read Less

We loved our time on the Breeze. I am writing this review as I really enjoyed reading the reviews prior to our cruise which was the week of 5/20 so hopefully this will help anyone with an upcoming trip on the Breeze. We departed out of Galveston with an itinerary going to Montego Bay, Grand Caymen and Cozumel. The ship was beautiful. Very well- appointed. Not as gaudy as others ships which was nice. The staff was always working hard to keep it clear and refreshed. All of the staff we encountered were wonderful. We loved the entire staff at Camp Ocean, where our little one frequented often (and loved it!), Das in the Blush dining room and our stateroom attendant, Jose. They were each so wonderful and knew us by name by the 2nd day. I recommend Camp Ocean for anyone with little ones, ours is 2 and some change and it was nice to send her to camp for a couple hours each day to have some adult time. You can leave diapers, wipes, anything else they will need and your child will be fully occupied with games, songs, and activities every day. We loved the Dr. Seuss theme and participating in the parade across the ship and the story time. Definitely a ton for kids to do. One thing they didn't tell us prior though is that any child who is not yet potty trained can't swim or play on the splash pad. Understand the pool as it's sitting water but the splash pad would have been fun to play in. We paid for the chat feature on the Carnival MyHub and it was good to chat with others in your party as the ship is really big. We didn't attend and shows or anything as we had our little one with us and didn't stay out late. The food at the buffet was OK...nothing to really right home about. BUT, the food at dinner in Blush was really, really good. Some items were even great I would say! But again, the service is what makes it an all-around wonderful dining experience. We loved Guy's Burgers (I had three in 7 days...), Indian Food was surprisingly really yummy, pizza was great and the BBQ also good. Breakfast buffet got old after day 3 but there is also the option to do sit down breakfast in your assigned restaurant which we heard was great. Something to note for next time. Casino took a lot of our money but hey...whatever. Drinks were also good and the Cheers package was worth it for my husband, but not so much for me. They say 5 total drinks a day will pay for it. I barely made 5 each day.. but, again. Good to know for the future. Our interior stateroom was small, but as to be expected. Especially with a 2 year old with us... crib fit nicely next to our King bed. Will likely upgrade to a larger room next time. From peeking my head in other rooms, seems worth a little more change to have a little bit more room to move around. We didn't book any excursions in advance (again, had a 2 year old) and glad we didn't because it rained (poured, really) in both the Caymens and Cozumel. We did go to Doc's Cave Beach Club in Montego Bay, Jamaica and that was nice. Pretty beach, good service from those who work there (you can get drinks and food on the beach) but beware of a lot of people walking up and down selling things from wooden turtles to pot... We came home in a Tropical Storm so it was very rocky on the boat but the Captain and Cruise Director were sure to communicate with us and warn us it was approaching. All in all, great time!!

First of all, I think it's important to mention that I wasn't very excited about our port day in Jamaica. However, we met a local taxi driver (Rae) who was beyond helpful and took us to a magical spot- Mayfield Falls! I honestly hesitate to blast it all over the internet, because what was so special, besides the beauty, is that we didn't see one other group while we were on our tour. We had the place all to ourselves, and it was stunning! If you want a special tour, by a trustworthy local, call Rae (I'll edit this review later when I find his number)! He was beyond helpful and put in the extra effort to make sure we had a once in a lifetime experience! Actually, we were driving to Dunn's River Falls and I mentioned that I hoped it wouldn't be completely packed, he offered to turn around (we were already about 10 miles out of town) to take us to one of his personal favorite of all the falls in Jamaica. Look at the pictures below, if you want to see some photos of the gorgeous falls. Now for the rest of the cruise, it was fun. We were traveling with our 4 adult children (19, 20, 21 & 23) and they had a great time. There was plenty to keep them entertained on the "at sea" days, and they even won money in the casino! The ship is kept immaculately clean. I noticed very few signs of wear and a staff that was in a constant state of buffing and shining. My favorite deck was the Serenity Deck (15) by far. It was an oasis from the bustle of the Lido deck, and I was able to nestle myself in a private little pod (I don't really know what else to call it) and relax the day away. Completely peaceful and a knock-out view from the front of the ship! The casino was smokey, and that's literally my only complaint. The staff were cheerful and light-hearted...not like Vegas where you get your head snapped off for any little infraction. The Comedians- hilarious. We went to both the PG & the Adult shows, and found ourselves belly laughing at each one! It was one of my favorite parts of the cruise! The food, ugh. To be fair, I am allergic to wheat, like EpiPen allergic, and so my diet is pretty limited. That being said, the wait staff did their best to have me order my dinner the day before, so they would make sure to keep it wheat-free. However, and this has nothing to do with the staff, the food was mediocre at best, sometimes it was downright gross- everyone in our group felt the same way. The portions were small and the meat was seemingly not the highest grade. But, the kids like the pizza, burrito bar, and burgers. I have to make sure I say that Arnold, Camile & Tolentino were impeccable servers. They hustled and smiled and worked their tails off! Emerson, their cabin steward, was a hoot! He knew all of the kids' names, and called them accordingly. They said that they wished he could come home with us! Our cabin was roomy, and the view was amazing. I think I could hear the staff pulling chairs out at about 7 am, but I am not one to sleep in late anyway. I was hesitant to spend the extra money on the balcony, but it was totally worth it! Overall, the experience was fantastic. I wish we could do it more often! Family bonding time, eating together every night...memories made that I will treasure forever! Read Less

We had priority so Embarkation and Debarkation was very easy. The ship is very clean and easy to navigate. The cabin is adequate size for 4 people, but plenty big enough for 2 people. The crew is always amazingly nice. The shows and Comedy club are fun and hilarious. Carnival excursions are very well organized and expensive, but if you like the guarantee good experience is worth it. You can save money by searching ports on the internet. My Kids love cruising and we prefer to have them with us. We usually get them their own room so we can spread out a little more. This last cruise i went on we had the best life guards. Devin, Sanil, Tehn and Egly were awesome. They helped us have fun and deserve to be recognized. We would recommend sailing with carnival and we always port out of galveston. It is very convenient.

The Breeze is a great ship with a good crew. We stayed on the Spa Deck to take advantage of the spa perks. Love the Thallasotherapy and the Thermal suites for total relaxation. Sorry to hear that Carnivals newer ships do not have all of these features. Embarkation and debarkation out of Galveston was smooth and easy.....much better than even a year ago. We were off the ship by 8 am and that was NOT carrying our luggage off. This ship has many things to do...especially on Sea days. You are only limited by what you are interested in. Food was better than some past Carnival cruises. Glad to see that they have brought back the "Baked Alaska Parade" in the main dining room. Cabin service was fantastic as was most other services....except the photo people. They are great at taking pictures but not so much in delivery.The last 2 days we were given 4 or 5 separate times that our package we had pre-ordered would be ready......and it never was until after 10PM the night before we returned.....too late to pack in luggage that had to be out by 10. All that considered...this was a great cruise. Sorry to see the Breeze leave Galveston but bring on the Vista !! Read Less

Only disappointment (NOT with Guy’s Burger) food was bland for us. Shoutout to: Dining team: Somchai, Ben and Yuparat — always greeted by name and attentive to our needs. We ensure that we were in their section, even if we had to wait. Room Steward: Jason — always greeted us by name. Refrigerator was not working properly and Jason was able to replace. Our shower was not draining and Jason got it serviced. Fun shop: Carlos & Rehan. So helpful in making our selection in jewelry. In fact EVERY ONE in this shop was fun to be around and knowledgeable. Cherry on Top: Mel went out of his way to service us with bottle holder to take with us off the ship and had it delivered to our room. Read Less

We had such a blast on our cruise. Everyone did such a wonderful job making sure we were having a good time, entertaining us, cleaning for us and making sure our food was prepared properly. Embarkation was perfect. We never waited in any lines and our cabins were ready when we got on board. We ended up departing a bit late out of Galveston due to an electrical issue. That caused our itinerary to go in reverse order but Carnival was great about letting us use the phones and call our non-Carnival excursions. Debarkation also went very smoothly, and was well organized. My only complaint with this process was standing in line trying to get through customs for about an hour and a half. If I could give anyone a shout out it would be Schwartz. He was absolutely amazing. He was personable, he was funny, he made you want to listen to the announcements and he was accessible. Honestly, I have no idea how he managed to get to all the things he was out in the time span’s that he did. We did have a meet and greet through Cruise critic on the breeze. Not that it was anybody’s fault, but they announced the itinerary change just as the meet and greet got started which caused everybody to be more focused on their excursions and their “what now.” Carnival did a great job with this too. This was a great itinerary and one I would absolutely do again. Thanks for listening. 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

The 3 stops comzuel, Belize and roatan. It was a very lively cruise with a great cruise director, Lee. No complaints on the food and enjoyed the primer rib and Chocolate melting cake. Most people seem to be very polite. The love and marriage game was hilarious. We enjoyed all of the entertainment things that we went to in the ovation theater. We enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. My most favorite was Honduras. We enjoyed little French keys. Shopping In comzuel. The altan ha ruins in Belize. We enjoyed learning a lot about the different cultures in the other countries. Such a school and poverty levels, it's funny to me how Americans have so much poverty level that corallites with drug and smoking however in those countries it is very minimal. I really thought it was great to hear that neither Honduras or Belize have a welfare system Read Less

I had the chance to go on the Carnival Breeze cruise over the first week of April with my family. This was my first cruise and I was really impressed with how great it was. The day we boarded the boat was a little crazy and frustrating. After taking the eleven flights of stairs to our room because the elevators had a half an hour wait, we came up to our room to find that the card to our room didn’t work. So then we had the issue of getting the room keys, that were cards, to work. A couple hours later our room keys were finally fixed. Our room was so nice and had a few of the towels folded up like animals. The first two days, being sea days, was full of food and exercising. The buffets were way crowded and had just ok food. The cruise ship was really big and easy to get lost in the these first few days we were there. The gym was really difficult to find, but was well worth it. The gym had the latest and greatest exercising machines with probably over thirty treadmills all looking out the large windows facing the ocean. Our cruise director Lee Mason was the coolest guy and was constantly going from place to place doing funny shows and events. Dinner was very gorment and was served by the nicest waiters who managed to remember all our names for the whole week. The next three days we went to our destinations in central America. First stop was Cozumel, then Belize, and finally Honduras. Our first stop at Cozumel was by far my favorite. I may have got stung by a jellyfish and got a little sunburnt, but it had the best snorkeling and had the clearest water I’ve ever seen in my life. The next day was an exhausting day of zip lining and tubing through caves for our family of six. Belize was much more sketchy than I was expecting, but appeared to be under control by security. Roatan, Honduras was a very crowded beach with very strict rules. The snorkeling was really good if you managed to make it through some shallow coral to the deep drop off. The next two days were similar to the first two days, but I spent a lot more time sunbathing. The guy’s burger joint was my go to for those days last couple days on the boat. After the cruise was over and was docked in Texas the chaos started happening all over again. It took almost two hours to get on the bus and get going to the airport. The last day was a little crazy, but was well worth it since it was part of the cruise. Overall it was a great experience for me and my family. Read Less

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

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

Embarkation went very well - we were on the ship quickly and enjoying a drink of the day on the lido deck within an hour. Disembarkation was okay my group decided to take our own luggage down. The elevators are locked out on the non-called floors so you have to take the stairs. We decided to stage ourselves on the 4th floor (5 was crowded and 3 was the exit). However, we met someone that said their cleaning staff told them to just go own down and exit the boat even though the deck number hadn't been called. We followed and were allowed to leave the ship much earlier than our deck number announcement. It took us about 35 minutes to get off the boat. The ship is very impressive. For the most part, I found it to be fairly clean and well equipped with options/areas. The seas were a little rough on a couple of days and the shipped handled well both days, especially on the upper decks. I found a few things less than optimal: 1) no exclusive adult only pool, only hot tubs; 2) the floor in the buffet is very slick - I wore three different shoe types walking through there and they were all slick; 3) it was march madness and the ship could only show one game on the TVs. The pub was so crowded it wasn't even worth trying to find a spot. The cabin was small but very clean. It looked like it had never been used. The AC didn't go as low as I would have liked it, but it was comfortable. I cruised by myself, so I had the double twins pushed together to make a king bed. I found the mattresses firm, but ultimately I spent little time in the cabin and was exhausted enough to sleep outside of mattress preferences. The sheets were soft and the entire room was turned down twice a day. I paid upfront for gratuities, and I tipped the cleaner $60 at the beginning. I never met someone so happy when he saw me. We had mixed dining experiences. First, I cannot begin to tell everyone how rough the back of the ship was in the Blush dining. It was rocking pretty good a couple of days enough for a couple of us to get uncomfortable while eating. The service there was also bad. On multiple occasions, we had to pour our own water (not a big deal) and actually get refills from a station by us. I had a ceasar salad delivered warm, and cooked food delivered cold. Our group eventually asked to be relocated to the Your-Time-Dining in the Sapphire. The service there and overall experience was much better. Our servers did a great job and were extremely personable. We also appreciated the ability to eat when we wanted, not at 20:15 that conflicted with so many activities on the ship. The entertainment and activities were very very very good. I cannot begin to express how much I enjoyed my interactions with the Fun Staff and the performers. All were very personable and I had the privilege to befriend a couple of them. We had a great time with Laz and that man has a great future ahead of him in the industry. The ports of cozumel and roatan were beautiful. I didn't really care much for Belize, as the only way to safely explore the area was through an excursion. I didn't feel unsafe in any of the places, but the immediate area outside of the Belize port was questionable. Our first stop in Cozumel did not go very well. The crew had decided to open only 1 gangway to get off the ship. Lee made an announcement to wait and not crowd the stairways or elevators and would make an additional announcement when it was okay to proceed. Well, my group followed the directions and were late to the port to meet for our snorkeling excursion and the boat left without us (5 people). Instead they offered to refund it in the port, and provide us another option to a private beach - which we took. The guide there was wrong in telling us it was a cataraman, but we enjoyed the food and experience overall. Eventually, the service refunded us 10% and gave some drink coupons. To get back on the ship, they had 3 gangways open and boarding was a breeze. Read Less

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

I chose this cruise because it was happening during my spring break at work. this was my 1st cruise. i sailed with a good friend from work. The carnival breeze crew was very friendly and helpful during my seven day cruise. The crew works together to keep the ship spotless. Cabins are cleaned early morning and your bed is turned down in the evening. room service was available and delivered at the time requested. The food provided during the cruise was excellent. There was never a shortage of food and beverages. The wait staff in the blush dining room make sure passengers have breakfast and dinner served with many selections to choose from. they were all very kind and always smiling and patient. Entertainment every night was excellent except i did not enjoy racial remarks by one comedian who has been on netflix. A group of eight dancers and singers performed wonderful shows each night. their talent was superb! we left after each show so happy and amazed, wonderful music, dancing and costumes. Several bands performed nightly. my favorite was the midas touch. The singers, piano player ,drummer, bass player were excellent and entertaining. female singer had a beautiful voice but at times seemed preoccupied. the guitar player was fantastic. you could tell he really enjoyed his music. male singer has a great voice and is smiling the entire time. the group was very enjoyable. we saw them each night they played. The cruise director was named lee. anyone who crossed paths with him was so happy to see him. he was everywhere during our seven day cruise. He was hilarious! Lee's jokes were always funny and kid friendly. example: lee announced: attention breeze passengers..... To the woman who reported $3,000 bundled in a rubber band lost.....we have found your rubber band!! he made this announcement during our debarkation which takes awhile. i would say he is well loved by his crew as well and the passengers. he is always visible. we wondered when he ever went to sleep! The three excursions we went on during the week were well organized with our safety at all ports clearly the most important factor. the transportation to and from islands was easy and comfortable and we were always taken back to ship in plenty of time. Thank you carnival breeze for a fantastic week of fun and relaxation. Read Less

It was our honeymoon cruise, sailing our of Galveston. We flew in to Houston from Denver, then drove down to Galveston. We stayed in the Tremont House, about 2 blocks from the cruise terminal. The whole process of getting on the ship went really quick. I was super excited because it was my first cruise. The weeks leading up to the cruise my wife kept telling me that once your on the ship, you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want. I didnt believe her, until I got on the ship. Our cabin was awesome. We stayed on the 12th deck. Our room stewardess was super awesome. We only told her our names once and she had them memorized for the rest of the week. We were very impressed with her. We were assigned to the Blush Dining room for dinner. We loved it. Two other couples sat at our table. One of the couples was real quiet, but we became really good friends with the other couple, and this couple also happened to be staying in the room right across the hall from us So our ports of call were Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Montego Bay wasnt my favorite, but it was still super awesome. Some Jamaicans just make it really hard to want to visit. We went to Doctors Cove Beach. Just walking around the streets, I had a bad feeling, but once we got on the beach side of the buildings, it was all awesome. The next day we were in Grand Cayman. I had a completely different feeling in Grand Cayman, I felt totally safe. We went to Seven Mile Beach and loved every second. Then we went back into town and did tons of shopping. The next day we were in Cozumel. I had the same feeling in Cozumel as I did in Grand Cayman. We went to Paradise Beach, and again, loved every second. It was my first cruise and my wife's 4th. We look forward to cruising on the Breeze again and again. Read Less

This was my second cruise with Carnival, and we had a great time as expected. The service was outstanding. Most of all we want to give a shout out to several crew members: Thuthisa and Sanja-servers in the Saphire dining room, Glenn-server at the Red Frog Pub, and Arnata-our cabin host. These folks truly made our trip such a delight; we will deeply miss seeing them, and we will cherish all the memories of the laughs we shared night after night. I am not a big snob about decor so we can sum it up as clean and beautiful. The food was good. We stuck to eating mostly in the dining room, but we also tried Guy's burgers a few times, and we have no complaints. Carnival ships are all about having fun, and they do a great job of giving you the opportunity to stay engaged. As far as the cruise ports... I hated Jamicia. The Montego Bay port runs a racket for duping tourists. We asked for a cab to take us to Doctors Cove and were shown to a small bus that charged 7.00. Once on the bus and driving, we were informed that we would not be going to Doctors Cove. Instead, they were offering for 11.00 more than the 14.00 fair to a souvenir shop and back, they would take us all around to several places so that we can experience Jamicia to the fullest and we would also go to a "much more beautiful" beach than the crowded tourist destinations. At this point, you were already stuck paying 14.00, so it didn't sound so bad. What ended up happening was we stopped at a shop with a bunch of crap made in China, drove halfway up a driveway and looked at a former plantation house (but we never went up to the house), sat in a hot, crowded bus as we went through a part of town that was not safe for tourists, and ended up at a beach that we had to pay 5.00 each to get in and had broken glass everywhere and garbage strewn about. I highly recommend you book a cruise excursion. You've been warned. The Cayman Islands If you like to shop, this place is for you, but the island dollar is worth more than USD so prepare to pay a bit more for your souvenirs. The snorkeling part of our Pirate Boat excursion was canceled due to high winds, but we made the most of the open bar and had a good time nonetheless. Cozumel We had the most fun here. The locals are friendly, there is a lot of stuff to explore around the ports, and we booked a private excursion of horseback riding for over two hours through the jungle and to Mayan ruins. I can't wait to revisit Cozumel. Overall, I have no complaints about the ship or Carnival Cruise lines. As for the ports, we should have booked more excursions. Lesson learned. Read Less

Ship- Clean, nice decor, comfy feeling. All cruise ships on all cruise lines have their sea wear and tear, but overall, it was a nice ship. And they're always painting something. Cabin- 8419 Balcony Room was clean, nice and spacious. It over looked the Promenade. Our daughter, her husband and our grandson stayed in the stateroom across the hall (8421). Convenient to have them close to us. We've done that before. The Balconies are NO Smoking. There's rust on the balcony, but there is rust on all cruise ships if you're looking for it. They're at sea, therefore creating rust. But it was clean. And with the fog setting everything back 2 hours on the first day, I ended up cleaning my room myself, always travel with Clorox travel wipes. They supply shampoo, body wash, bar soap and a blow dryer. Dining- We did our own time dining and had no problem getting a table right away in the dining room on nights that weren't elegant. The buffet was good. Guys Burgers is super yummy! You can get a pizza (homemade, super yummy), ice cream or a sandwich 24 hours. We used room service for the first time in 15 cruises and it was really good, the food comes from the dining room, not the buffet. Embarkation- The day we set sail, there was fog and the port was closed to marine traffic for 2 hours putting the whole embarkation experience 2 hours behind and it was very disorganized. WE on the other hand, booked our cruise through the casino and were able to get all of 5 of us Priority VIP service, which skootched us to the front of the line. It was amazing! Entertainment- Comedians are funny. The dance group was really good. The Dr. Seuss parade was great fun for my grandson, and they have a story time after. The towel folding class is fun too and they have a story time after that as well. We also enjoyed the game room, you get tickets for playing and can buy prizes with them. Fun for a 7-year-old who wouldn't go into the Club area alone. Waterworks- the best thing about this ship, we couldn't keep our grandson out of it, even on a chillier day. they say you have to be 42" to go down the slides, but apparently that really means at the parent’s discretion. There's free mini golf, pool tables, bean bag toss, ping pong and a climber’s obstacle course, that is 48" strictly. The swimming pools were rarely full as well and clean. They supply life jackets in 3 different sizes. Ports- Montego Bay Jamaica is disgusting, DO NOT venture out alone. When you get off of the ship there is a 'Hop on- Hop off' bus provided by the cruise line and it's $19 per person and they will take you to the Doctors Cave beach. It’s an additional $5 per person to enter the beach, well worth it. When you get off of the bus, the locals are rude and very in your face about buying pot brownies and other illegal substances. Hold all children in your arms if possible. This was our 15th cruise and I've never felt more vulnerable and afraid in a port. Cozumel- Make sure you book an excursion if you want to go to the beach as they fill up. We took a taxi to a resort as we had in the past, only to return to the ship as the beach was full as there were 5 ships in port. That was a first for us. Sat at Tuesdays and had cocktails so it all worked out. Grand Cayman- Same beautiful picturesque port as always, very pricey. Things to bring for comfort- Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer wipes, a night light if you're staying in an inside stateroom, a plastic hanger with clips on each end (the kind you get when you purchase kids shorts) for hanging/drying swim wear, travel toilet paper for on the islands, a shopping bag with shoulder straps. Have fun and don't take it all too seriously, you're on vacation, you're only there for a short while. Read Less

We took a Carnival shuttle from the airport and that was by far one of the best decisions we made. We didn't know it at the time but it gave us priority boarding. We got off the bus and walked right on the boat. Had an umbrella drink in hand by 11:00 a.m. It was a long wait for elevators on embarkation day but that lessened as time went on. Still some long waits throughout the week.The crew on the Breeze was amazing. We couldn't believe how polite they all were and remembered ours names right away. We felt so pampered. The food was outstanding and the lines were relatively short for almost 5000 passengers.The different options available made it hard to decide what to eat next! Of course you can't forget the soft serve ice cream, strawberry every other day! We did an excursion through Carnival and that too went without a hitch. We were most impressed with the cleanliness on the ship! The staff did an outstanding job keeping up with all the people on vacation. We traveled with some old friends but made some great new ones as well. If you get bored it's your own fault as the entertainment and activities has something for everyone. The cabins are more than comfortable. The only changes I would like to see is the music turned down a little on the Lido deck and some adult only swimming hours. Disembarkation was just as fast embarkation. Will definitely do a second cruise with Carnival!! Read Less

The Carnival Breeze out of Galveston was a delight to be on. The crew and staff are amazing and fun. The food choices (without paying extra) are great! The main dining is a very nice place to eat with very good food (Hard to beat being asked if you want another lobster tail when you just finish one on our dress up night). We stayed in the inside cabin and that was fine, use the space under the bed to store your suitcase and the closets and drawers to store what your going to wear. The bathroom is kinda small but I think that's fairly standard. There is always things to do like the Hasbro games shows, Casino, music from multiple locations to just listen to or enjoy the view as your sailing. You can also check out the library for books, games and puzzles or just relax and eat your way into a coma while people watching. Our cruise (Dec 31 2017) didn't have much in the way of sunny weather but that didn't stop my son and I from enjoying the hot tub and checking out the Dive in movies at night. Hard to beat sitting pool side and getting treats just down the hall like cake ice cream and pizza. Or a grilled cheese if you want one. I would do this cruise again in a heartbeat but I think I would want to try the summer as I do like the heat and sun :) Read Less

Before our cruise, we went on line and explore our departure city. It was really interesting. Our disembarkation and embarkation ran very smoothly. There were no hiccups. The ship is very comfortable, smooth sailing and has a lot of amenities. There's always something to do to keep you busy. The cabins are gorgeous, clean and spacious. The dining is ipeccable, you can eat all day and night. You will never go wrong on food to choose from. I love the pool where you can relax and bathe in the sun. The children loved the activities. Room service was always available to us. Ports and shore excursions were impeccable. We visited Heritage village by Graycliff on west hill street, where you will find authentic artwork made in the Bahamas by Bahamians. There you will find a winery, chocolate factory and other good stuff. Its really cool there. We will go again. Read Less

This is my wife and my second cruise. Our first one is the whole family on 4 days Carnival Ecstasy. My wife and I decided to go on this 7 day Carnival Breeze cruise trip. The ship is beautiful, especially compared to other cruise ship at the same ports. The color scheme and design stand out, feeling modern, clean and unique. Getting on the ship is super easy. We signed up to embarkation at 1-1:30 PM and we arrived 1:30 PM exactly. After short time at sign in counter and security luggage check, we are on board. The stateroom is ready. After putting luggage in our room, we went directly to Lido buffet. So many selections, Mexican, burger, pizza, Indian, seaday buffet, etc. Food along is the best part on the cruise. We usually eat several meals a day, more than 3 of course. Burger is very popular and greasy in a good way. Pizza is 24 hours, crispy and delicious. Indian food is yummy, and spicy. Pasta is free during lunch time and very high quality. For the Lido buffet, enjoy the fish during the first several days, as they are fresh. Fruits is plenty, and just be careful with watermelon at the last couple days of the cruise. Formal dining is great with many to choose. We have 8-15 PM late dining. It is better to go over the Lido buffet. There are some exact dishes on the buffet and the dinner menu. During seaday, there is also brunch provided, with many selection to choose. We will give dining higher than perfect score. Performance at the theater is acceptable. We think they are at least well prepared. Some people say they are just so so. I didn't expect them to be too good and it isn't. Cosmetics and liquor is less expensive than in US and is duty free. Casino is busy. We have about 4300 guest and there are 400 signed up for the slot tournament. Quite several people hit jack pot when I was there ($2,000 - $15,000). Rules are not strictly enforced, blackjack min 6$ but I see people playing on $5 without any problem. Dealer are not that experienced, but more accommodating. Art auction is interesting, and Brian is experienced host with many tricks. We still feel that the price is high to us currently. Service is always great. Debarking is super fast and easy. No scan of luggage after Customs desk. Read Less
