My wife and I are extremely disappointed with the way Carnival is going. We will not be cruising with Carnival again. As this is a new ship with most of the crew having service,security and dealing with unruly passenger experience during it's time in the Med, we expected better.
Also, being the inaugural Caribbean cruise we expected more of the passengers in as much as respect for others and respect for the ship itself. But this is Carnival, so beware. In the five sailings we've made with Carnival this was the rowdiest bunch of passengers we've ever encountered. We are VIP (joke) Gold members and received two pins, a drink voucher that could only be used in the dining rooms and an invitation to a reception with 3,000 of our closest friends held in the theater. One would have thought that a glass of champagne or some small memento, with Breeze emblazoned on it, could have been offered.
Embarkation was typical, long waits to get on board, especially if you come in a day earlier and have to vacate a hotel room before 12:00 PM.
Cabin 11240, Spa Deck, afforded us the peace and quiet we wanted during the times we chose to be in it. This outside cabin's balcony is small, 2 chairs and a table. The square footage is the same, 185 sq ft, as any other outside cabin on any other deck. It has adequate storage space for two people if you place your emptied luggage under the bed. There are upscale bathroom products and slippers and bathrobes that come with Spa accomodations.
