And while the pit stops will certainly play a prominent role in our coverage (Salerno had us reaching for a guidebook), we're more curious about Breeze itself, the first total embodiment of Fun Ship 2.0. For those who don't know, that's Carnival's half billion dollar initiative aimed at retooling the line vis a vis booze, burgers, burritos and George Lopez ... among other things. With no more new-builds on the docket beyond Breeze, Carnival brass are taking a hard look at tweaking what they've got. Breeze will be something of the prototype.
Internet willing, I'm shooting to publish a couple times a day on this thread. Feel free to post any questions you might have about Breeze, Fun Ship 2.0, connecting cabins (I have one) or the now-legendary John Heald (no poop-related questions, please).
We'll also be posting over on the Lido Deck Blog ("Hits & Misses," "Farcus-Free, How's It Feel?" and such), on Cruise Critic's Facebook page and on the Carnival Breeze review page.
All the content from the trip will be housed on the review page.
Editor's Note: That bit about the cocktails was just a means of enticing you to click.
