  3. Carnival Breeze
This date and sailing were chosen for a family trip with three generations from 70 to 3 yrs of age. It was just close to PERFECT. Lee, the cruise director, was a key factor in creating a happiness environment. And the whole cast of entertainers and musicians and dancers was just wonderful. The two of us older ones were involved in nearly every activity possible and up till past 12:30 every night. The band, The Midas Touch, were wonderful (xoxo to Brandon- the lead male vocalist), The Calverts were super (would have only liked more selections suitable for slower dancing), MoTown show-- great, dancing on the Lido deck also great (even if we were the oldest there), the many opportunities for line dancing.... all these activities kept us moving and having FUN. Our steward, Fidel, was wonderful and so kind and efficient. The whole crew on the ship from the ropes course to the dining services to the guest service desk-- everyone was warm and friendly. WE were just amazed at the personal interactions and their ability to remember us BY NAME starting with day one! We enjoyed all the dining-- from buffet to Sapphire. We won a dinner for two to Farenheit Steak House and it was superior! We would not have chosen to go, but did and it was truly luxurious and exceptionally great food and service. This was our second cruise- first on Carnival- and our cabin was great-- spacious, loads of storage, wonderful window (far superior on all counts to our cruise on a different line and with same cabin grade. We will choose Carnival AGAIN! Loved all the activities for kids so parents could have their own time! Our grandkids LOVED going to the Kids clubs and the Night Owl. The HUB is an absolute must even if traveling alone because the ability to have a map or list of activities at touch was great! And for us, as a family of 9, we could communicate via chat and find each other. **INVESTIGATE WHAT YOUR INSURANCE WILL OR WILL NOT COVER MEDICALLY IF ON SHIP IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS. Our new friends across the hall had a medical emergency and all costs were put on her sign and sail card-- they would accept no insurance even for the ICU portion of their time in medical! OUCH! About the only points I have to offer for improvement are the following: 1. the internet purchase (the mid range plan) was useless. I could virtually never get on or stay on. 2. the Serenity Area (adults only) needs a system of having a check out system for the beds, chairs, and hammock ,etc... because there were people that got up there early and literally camped out in the accommodations for the whole day... never letting others have a chance. Some system of getting a hang tag that allows you one hour per item per person.... 3. the craft activity on the third sea day was completely age inappropriate for almost any of the kids... and it was described as cutting, pasting, etc-- for kids. It was an embroidery project that for most participants meant learning a new skill and one that could not be completed in the 45 minutes before we had to clear the area for a new activity. 4. The cost of drinks was reasonable... but the cost of bottled alcohol was out of sight. 5. have ice available on each floor.... or have ice buckets that can go to the room from the Lido Beverage station. 6. personally, we all learned that three days of shore excursions in a row is very exhausting... better to select an itinerary with a break in there somewhere. We loved the two sea days in a row.

OVERALL FANTASTIC CRUISE
