  3. Carnival Breeze
This was the third cruise, the previous two were on the Carnival Magic. Embarkation was seamless and quick. On board in in cabin by 12:00 without FTTF. Cabin was a cove balcony. These are wonderful, the balcony offers privacy and shade, and is close to the water, which was enjoyable. Cabin was simile in size and layout as previously experienced. No issues with too hot or too cold, no noise from the galley above. Room steward came and removed liquor from the mini refrigerator after departure. He did not clean our room on first sea day. I complained, and there was no further problems. Food is a mixed bag, from unacceptable, to superlative. The dining room was terrible on the two nights we tried. Undoubtedly the worst lobster I ever had, volf, overcooked, rubbery, along with overcooked vegetables. A bit pushy on the wine as well, I don't want to be asked repeatedly if I would like a bottle instead of a glass. Guys Burgers was good, considering the volume they produce. The burgers were fresh, as well as the buns they were served on. Good menu varety. The true star of the dining experience is Cucin Del Capitano. The ambience and service is top shelf. The house chianti is very good,and the varied menu is executed flawlessly. For the $15 upcharge you receive a great dining experience. Capitano was so good we dined thereon four different evenings. Music was quite good, with the exception of the piano bar. That performer only seemed nterested in getting drunk, at least on the first night. Never went back. Other music was really good, t he stringed trio, the country western combo, and the jazz band were all fun to listen to and waych. Entertainment seemed lacking compared to previous cruises. The night of the send port call there was no comedy or shows offered. The Thrill Theater was closed the entire trip. Overall this cruise did not measure up to previous cruises, so much so that I will consider Royal Caribbean next time.

Didn't measure up to previous cruises.

Cabin Review

Cove Balcony
Cabin 7C 2362
Balcony offered privacy and shade. Liked it better than a regular balcony and an aft balcony.
