Sail Date: 05/25/13
Returned on June 2nd from sailing 8 days aboard the Carnival Breeze.
sailed to Grand Turk, San Juan, St Marten, and St Thomas. Beautiful
islands, my favorite being the spanish flavor San Juan and St Marten.
embarkation was a BREEZE, and went straight to the LIDO deck to hit
Guy's Burger Joint and the amazing BURRITO BAR ... and a Green Iguana
drink in the other hand ... as we sailed away from Miami .. ADIOS MIAMI,
It was my 3rd Carnival Cruise .. My 1st being on the Valor and my 2nd Carnival cruise on the Liberty.
Carnival Breeze has a tropical theme .. the hallways are covered with
wallpaper of beaches and palm trees, which makes the hallway bright and
happy , and gives you the VACATION AND ISLAND FEEL ! On deck 10, where
the buffet "Market Place" is also has that tropical feel, it has palm
trees and light wood and lively colors (in the buffet). The atrium
(middle of the ship) has nice lamps hanging down, and the lively casino
which is ALWAYS packed. The bar in the casino, always packed as well,
and shows sports. When I was on board, the semi-finals for Basketball
was going on , with Miami heat and Indianna, so they played that and
everyone was watching .. and they also got the OK to play it on the lido
deck on the BIG SCREEN ! Was fun to watch, even though I dont like
Basketball .. I guess it was a special moment, since 80% of the ship was
from Florida !
Food - The dining room food is really good especially when you want a nice meal, rather than hamburgers. For dinner,
Carnival is better for its dining room .. however , the Buffet
(marketplace) is also good, but not many guests go, and there isn't a
Dessert = AMAZING .. especially the WARM CHOCOLATE MELTING
CAKE .. Carnival's signature dessert !
Entertainment - They really try to get everyone involved, have fun and a good time ! They play games, have music, contests during the day inside and outside on the Lido deck. They also have Karaoke some evenings, they have the piano bar with a singer, they have appearances from famous Comedians in the Limelight lounge (Punch liner Comedy Club by George Lopez), the sports bar on deck 5 and ofcourse LIQUID NIGHT CLUB ! .. One of my favorite Cruise Directors so far, is Butch Begovitch, who was on the Breeze.
Cabins - I had an interior cabin for 2 . I think its just perfect. Everything in the cabin is well placed to ensure you have enough space.
Debarkation - We did self assist checkout. The debarkation (last day of the cruise) was a bit of a mess .. I don't think that's Carnival's fault, I just think the guests feel like they can do what they want .. When guests go down to disembark on the last day they either go after their time or when they want, and causes the debarkation process to become slow and sloppy.
In summary, I love Carnival and already booking my next one on the Dream for Nov 17th!
