  3. Carnival Breeze
We enjoy Carnival. Love the caribbean. Cozumel is our favorite place on the planet. We love getting around town with the locals and making friends, The beach however is our happy place. "With our toes in the sand, a cold drink in our hand, a warm breeze on our face, we're in our happy place." The beaches in Cozumel and Roatan are always wonderful. I did some snorkeling along the reef in Roatan,which is always fascinating. Belize is not one of our favorite places unless I go snorkeling there but the others with us do not snorkel and I did not want to leave them. But the wives went shopping while the fellas spent some time at the husband day care at The Wet Lizard; met some nice folks from the ship and enjoyed our day there. As far as the Breeze is concerned, it was decorated nicely. Very tropical which is an improvement over some of the awful decorating on some other Carnival ships. We enjoyed the food and the service. That was all fine. HOWEVER, the entertainment was just terrible. Violins in the atrium were boring, with more empty seats than filled ones. The few that were there were looking at their cell phone are talking, paying no attention to the music. We have always looked for some nice music to listen to after dinner and on sea days to relax and enjoy. We have followed bands around to wherever they were on the ship; "Music Degree; Bluelypso; Black Jack Band; Resting Beach Face" We looked and there was no good music on this cruise. Comedians were poor. We found ourselves going to bed at 9pm with nothing else to do. This was enough to cause us to think seriously about Carnival Cruises in the future, We have another cruise booked but not with Carnival.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 9304
We always get a balcony and it was fine. Love getting early morning room service and having coffee on the balcony watching the sun come up. Our room steward was good but we have never had a bad one. We have had inside, window, balcony and mini suite and balcony is the way to go for us.
