Not what the commercials show...

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona
Our experience on the Breeze was poor. Overall the ship was over crowded and had long lines for simply everything. There are no relaxing drinks by the pool or lazy games of ping pong, just lots and lots of people all standing in line everywhere.
The lido deck has inspired the term "combat dining". In the mornings they would run out of coffee, coffee mugs and even regular cups, very frustrating. The room steward was nice but did not put the pull out bed back in the mornings (as I have seen on other cruises). The staff was overwhelmed with the number of people and service and courteousness suffered.
The excursions were like kindergarten field trips and overpriced, I did better in several ports "winging it" and got more personalized and less expensive excursions. I got very tired of the cruise director announcing over the pa he had a big day planned for me on board and it would "only cost you xxx more dollars!" My personal fav was when he said he had a big day planned for me at More the onboard gift shop.
I did enjoy the destinations and the ship is nice and new but it was just plain overcrowded and I have never been so happy to leave. I am tired of stepping out of one persons way only to be in another's, and the people were not polite. I will not purchase a cruise on Carnival again. Less

Cabin review:

Noisy room(across from elevator). Air conditioning did not work, room was hot all the time. Doors could be heard closing all the time which shook the bed.
