Just back from the Carnival Breeze

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Our family of 16 people just got off of the Breeze yesterday and it did not disappoint in any way. Inspite of previous reviews of poor food quality, we enjoyed every bite. There is something for everyone. If scrambled eggs are not your choosing, the made-to-order omlette is awesome. Everyday, you can choose what you want, as much as you want, or even fried eggs cooked to order, with or without yolks. A continental breakfast might be your option in one line, while a mexican breakfast jumbo burrito made-to-order might be another option. And thats just breakfast.

For lunch, gotta try Guys Burgers. They are so yummy. With cheese or no cheese, and several toppings to choose, such as sauted onions or mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and all the condiments. These burgers are served with the tastiest seasoned fries that will have you wanting more.

Pizza is served 24 hours and it too is very tasty. Limited pizza flavor options, but Pepperoni and Margharita rank as the top More favorites.

There is a deli with hot and cold sandwiches and even all beef hot dogs. Along with the Mongolian Wok made from your choice of chicken, pork, or shrimp and various sauces and vegetables. Surely not to be missed. And don't forget about Tandoor. I believe it is Indian/Tai food, but I did not try. On sea days only, there is Fat Jimmy's BBQ and only open for a limited time, so if you snooze, you will miss this eating opportunity, which I did.

Don't forget to try the 555 Fahrenheit steakhouse. Book early for a very special dinner. Cost is $35 per person and meal can last upto 2 hours. Food is really good, but the cheesecake takes the cake. It's size is about triple what you might get in the dining room and one is more than enough to share.

And who can resist the 24 hour ice cream. Chocolate or vanilla ice cream or strawberry n vanilla frozen yogurt. All day, every day is all I have to say.

If none of these options, try room service or the dining room. Always something different or the same favorites.

The Breeze offers the Cheers card for those 21 or older. Cost is about $293 per person for the week, but limits you to 15 drinks per day. All persons in the cabin over 21 must purchase if one chooses to purchase. Bummer here as only one drinks, but might work for some families.

The seaside theater offers two great movies nightly and even popcorn is available. However, for a more interactive theater experience, try the 5D theater. Cost is $7.95 for one time or unlimited viewing for $14.95.

Flowers are a really nice gift to give and receive. However if you are going to be sending them, send them early so they can be enjoyed all week. Due to custom regulations, they have to be left behind.

There are two formal nights for your enjoyment and cruise casual the rest of the nights. Dress pants and shirts with ties work for the guys and nice pants or dresses for the ladies. They request no flip flops in the dining room and would rather not have cut-off shorts.

Pack light as you will be coming home with more than you left with. Those suitcases get heavy. Laundry facilities are available on some decks and usually are best available on port days. Your sail and sign card is used for these, so no quarters needed. $3.25 to wash and $3.25 to dry. Laundry soap boxes are also available for about $1.25 or so. You can also bring your own from the travel section of most stores too.

Best advice, bring your 12pk of water or favorite soda beverage that is allowed per person. Sure beats $1.95 per each Coke plus 15% gratuity every time.

This cruise was a very enjoyable vacation. It is what you make it. Balcony decks are awesome and can't be beat, especially when you are on the Lido/pool deck with all the activities. Less

Lido balcony deck. Awesome! And if you are cruising with friends/family, open the divider and enjoy the space.
