  1. My wife got sick on the Tuesday night of this cruise and the Carnival Medical Staff on the Breeze did a great job to stabilize her. When we got to Mahogany Bay on the Wednesday, we had to air lift her back to Florida in the USA. Thanks again carnival for you help and attentions, we have been cruising from 1990 and this has never happen to us before. Embarkation:Started at 10:30am and we were on the ship by 10:50am. Port Canaveral: Is a really great port and the service there is great.I have been using this port since 2006.We always get on board between 10:45am- 11:00am, this without purchasing Fast to the Fun!!. The slowest boarding we have had is on the Sunshine last year 2018 to Bermuda and that was at 11:30am. Ship: The Carnival Breeze is a great ship,clean and well laid-out, Its just like the Magic with lighter colors. Cabin: 7325 Balcony, was fine, great room service. Dining: Was good in the dining room for our 6:00pm dinner.I saw a cut back in the lunch buffet selection. Entertainment:Was good, the adult show on Tuesday night was great and lot of activities. Services:Overall service was great ( Again I thank the medical staff for saving my wife life when she could not breathe). Ports:Did not go on excursion in Cozumel or Belize,I have visited there before on Carnival.We got of in Mahogany Bay in Honduras and air ambulance my wife back to Florida. Next cruise:I will be platinum , looking forward to that. Just a reminder when you are looking for a cruise line, make sure to check all important info including medical. This was an eye opener for us and we have been sailing from 1990, We have been on RCL and NCL also.( Age group 55) This was our 30 years Anniversary cruise too. Hope this help !!
  2. We had a family cruise on the Breeze this past week. Here is a video highlight of our trip. Happy to answer any questions
  3. Anyone know why? Looks like it should have left at 1600.
  4. Cruising on Breeze in mid October and my wife is wondering if they have introduced the white claw drinks on Carnival Cruise lines yet??? TIA 😃
  5. Does anyone know who the casino host is on the Breeze?
  6. For the first time, I am probably not getting a drink package (my mom doesn't drink so paying for two people is way out of the budget). Curious to hear about all the drink specials you all have found throughout the Breeze. Thank you!
  7. Hello All! I’m currently looking at cruise options for Spring break 2019 and I’m trying to decide between Carnival Breeze and Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas. My daughter, who will celebrate her 6th birthday on this cruise, has Celiac disease so must have a strict gluten-free diet. I have done tons of RCI research for our upcoming cruise on Oasis, so I know what to expect from them, but Carnival is new to me. My questions for you experienced cruisers: 1) How are the gluten-free kids meal options on Breeze? 2) Are the quick-service places (burger, bbq, Mexican, etc) safe for a kid with Celiac, or will she have to eat all meals in the dining room? 3) Anyone had experience ordering a GF kids birthday cake on board? Is this even an option? 4) Can anyone comment on who does Gluten free (for kids especially) better? Carnival or RCI? Or are they equal? Truly this could be the most important consideration for me as a dad when I finally decide which ship to pick. 5) Any other general advice for a child with Celiac on the ship? I’ve searched, and there is a lot of great info I've been able to find about general GF offerings but most of it has been from an adult's perspective, so any additional resources to look at this from a child's perspective would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you!
  8. Any entertainment not yet published?
  9. I will be sailing on the Breeze this November. I have had various experiences with Carnival regarding the Muster drill. On several of the ships muster was held outside standing against the wall shoulder to shoulder 5 deep, in the heat. Other times we were seated comfortably in a lounge or dining room. Just wondered what to expect on Breeze. If it matters I will have a deck 11 spa room. Any idea where it will be? Just want to be mentally prepared and not too early. We all had to wait 20 minutes for the stragglers to arrive last time before they got things started. Thanks for any info you can share on this.😉
  10. Thinking about booking this ship. How is it what are the pros & cons?
  11. A search does not reveal any specific posts for cabin 8201 on Magic (or sisters Dream and Breeze). This is the first forward Balcony next to the Bridge. Does anyone have any experience with this cabin? I am not expecting much privacy, but interested to know how much of the view will be impacted, and general noise levels. TIA!
  12. How do I order the drink package and what is the cost? I haven't been on Carnival line in a long time.
  13. Hi all - I live local to the port, we'll have a friend picking us up. Combine this with the fact that the night before we'll likely be getting our money's worth out of the Cheers program, I'd prefer to stay on board as long as possible. Does anyone know when 'last call' is for getting off the ship before they come looking for you? Does the fact that we'll have luggage put out the night before complicate matters? I haven't been on Carnival since they stopped handing out luggage tags in your room, so I'm not sure what the process is or if you can choose to be the last group off the ship or something like that. Also totally off-topic, but within the realm of the Breeze - I don't think it warrants its own thread: Is there really no more Indian food on board? We loved the Tandoor grill but I think that's been replaced with the Fish Fry. We were really looking forward to some Indian food. Thanks for your feedback!
  14. https://carnivalentertainment.com/playlist/shows doesn't show which show is where. Would anyone happen to know where I can find the current productions shows on a specific ship? Will be on the Breeze soon, and the Legend next year, and I was just curious what shows we'll get. Thanks.
  15. Hello, Does anyone have the Fun Times for the Breeze? We sail Aug 24th, 7 nights Amber Cove, ST Thomas, San Juan & Grand Turk. Thanks very much, Bob
  16. I have been on one Carnival ship so far.. on Sunshine and trying to book a cruise for next year. I have been doing an extensive research on ships for weeks and came to a conclusion that Carnival Breeze is the "overall" best/most liked ship in the fleet. Am I right? What makes Breeze special? (to a lesser extent Dream Class ships) I was somewhat surprised that their new ships Vista/Horizon have way too many negative reviews due to crowding issue. I am thinking about leaving from Florida with 2 kids and this close to book a cove balcony on Breeze... please tell me I am making a right choice! what makes Breeze so good compared to other ships? thanks!
  17. Where would you recommend eating when we get on the ship? Is one specific time better than another? Thanks!
  18. I was surprised the hear the Breeze was in port today since RCL & MSC both pulled stops in SJ. I’m not sure if any other lines pulled stops there. Surly Carnival isn’t the only line still going.
  19. Does anyone out there have copies of the dining room menus for Carnival Breeze's 7 night cruise?? TIA
  20. Tonight, I'm gonna have myself a real good time. I feel alive. And the world-I'll turn it inside out yeah. I'm floating around in ecstasy. So don’t stop me now, don’t stop me. Cause I'm having a good time, having a good time. ~Queen~ First of all, if you just sang those lyrics as you were reading, we are now play cousins!

  21. So I had asked in a post before about charging and was told some awesome information. I thought I remembered being told that usb ports tend not to be surge protected. We have a lot of people and lots of things to be plugged in and charged. I learned from Cheng which European adapter I can use and had planned on using it for our USB hub. But everyone I find says something like this: Certified Safe: Anker's MultiProtect safety system ensures complete protection for you and your devices. Does this mean it IS surge protected? I was going to use the US plug with an extension cord for my husbands CPAP , hair dryers, curlers , etc. I thought about getting a simple and cheap multi plug for that one but I think I need it to go up and down so I can use the European one as well. Does anyone know of some usb hubs only that are not surge protected? I don't want to be a hazard on the ship. I found some old posts with suggestions but when I click on the link , it isn't there. Does anyone have a picture of The Breeze plugs? It would be helpful in choosing something. I googled it but am never sure if it is a true picture on the Breeze. Thanks so much guys!!
  22. Hello, we were on the Breeze sailing date of 5/25. We had two cabins, ours was 2441 and my father in law 2439. We booked these cabins because it was a last minute decision and the cove balconies were the only balcony cabins available. Embarkation: I am platinum and my father in law is gold, we were unable to get him the FTTF as we booked this cruise last minute, but they allowed him to stay with us when we arrived in the terminal. We sat in Platinum group and got right on board right after the wedding party at 10:50. My cabin was ready with our keys at the mailbox outside our cabin and my father in laws was not as he did not have FTTF. We placed our carry on bags inside and went up to the buffet for lunch as we did not eat breakfast. Stateroom: NEVER AGAIN will we have a cove balcony!!!! Every night from 3am we would hear what sounded like pipes hitting the floor or logs hitting a metal floor, real loud and this did not stop during the night/early am. There were other types of loud noses grinding noises, doors slamming hard as well as noises I can't explain but all loud. Our cabins were right at the aft beginning of the galley, we expected this but didn't expect it all night long and as loud as it was. My other half who generally sleeps through everything was woken up so many times each night also. My elderly father in law who was next door of us could not sleep all night, he would have to go back to his room during the daytime to sleep. We were not able to use the balcony, on embarkation day because it was being painted as well the next day, on day 3 and four we still couldn't sit on the balcony as everything was wet and had oil based paint smell outside which at times we would smell inside our cabins. I gather the humidity was part of the issue. Paying for these balcony cabins was a total waste of money, our chairs had paint splattered on them too. The stateroom is the typical stateroom with plenty of closet space and hangers, there was a closet with shelves and the safe was above the desk/vanity area so we had an extra shelf space in the closet. Our luggage fit perfectly under the bed, the vanity light was too dim (but there is a make up mirror in the bathroom) and there was a stool at the vanity which was nice. We had pool towels in our cabin and received some goodies from the casino because this was a premier cruise. Our cabin steward was excellent, I needed extra pillows and wanted a couple of extra bath towels and these came right away. AC was the best out of all my other 90 cruises I ever been on, in fact, the entire ship was on the cool side, something which we rarely get on other ships. I kept the thermostat on the lowest setting with 80% of the curtains drawn each day, it always kept cool and we slept well because of that but not well with all the noise above our cabins. Normally, I can't sleep with any noise but I was surprised because I would wake up at least 70 times during the night hearing these loud noises but always went right back to sleep. (maybe something to do with going to bed at 2am each night lol) Food: Lunch Buffet- On the first day they had a meat carving, turkey which was very good but the remaining 6 days there was no meat carving at all!! People were asking where it was also. I have to say, they cut back on the hot foods in the buffet for lunch, very limited choices, salad bar was cut in half from what we had on the Elation this past February. Ice Cream was always available and good. I found the lunch buffet to be just ok in my book (you can't starve) but tried the deli once, I ordered the turkey on pretzel roll, opened up the sandwich when I got it because it appeared very soggy, the bun was saturated with sauce/butter so bad you couldn't eat it and there were only two tiny pieces of turkey on it, the tomatoes were soggy but lettuce was fine as so was the avocado. Unfortunately, there is alot of waste of food and I couldn't help it myself, although I take a tablespoon to try it and if I like it I can go back for more which only happened the one day they actually had a hot vegetable, collard greens, they really need to add a vegetable to the buffet each day. I did try guys burgers and I have to say usually I can't eat it as its full of grease, but this time it was very good actually. There wasn't much food that appealed to me on the lunch buffet but I tell you what I had instead....I don't eat sweets/cake except for holidays, but I was eating three small slices of cake everyday! Their cakes are the best out of any other cruise line, so yummy!! That basically was my lunch, but on the last day I found where you can get a better salad and a turkey wrap right in the Ocean Plaza and it was very good. The BBQ was only opened for three days, it was ok and many people enjoyed that. Breakfast Buffet- this was a HUGE problem with us and pretty much everybody that attended the buffet breakfast. The problem is the bacon which was the last thing they serve to you on the buffet. What they do is cook the bacon in the back and they had a guy serving it and all you can get is two slices of bacon, but there is a larger problem, they only put out enough bacon to give to 8-9 people then the bacon pan was empty again, and you have to wait another 15-12 minutes for them to put out more and this kept going on and on and this is what held up the buffet breakfast lines. On sea days you would literally wait 20-25 minutes to get your breakfast!! On port days they still had the problem with the lack of bacon but there are less people so it wasn't too bad but you never can get bacon and if you can you be lucky to get your two slices. The omelet station for some odd reason only had about 7 people ahead of us and they always prepared the omelets fine. A few times on the cruise we heard people saying "no bacon cruise" lol. MDR Dinner- We went here twice. It was obvious both our waiters were all overworked and had too many tables to take care of but they both did great under the circumstances. In the past when you ordered two appetizers they serve you one and take away your dish when your done and hand you the other, what they do now, is give you all your appetizers on the table at once and the same goes for the entrees. Considering the amount of people eating here at once the food was fine and I would go back again. We had my time dining and arrived both times around 7:30 and were seated promptly. Steakhouse- We went here four times and it was overall excellent!! I had the cowboy, the prime rib, the strip steak as well as two lobster tails, all very very good. I was disappointed with the desserts, so only chose ice cream once and espresso the remaining nights. Cucina del Capitano- We went here once for dinner, it was ok, nothing special, wouldn't go here again for dinner. Bonsai Sushi- Only opened for dinner time, we wanted to go there on our last evening, but thought since it was the last day and they using up what they had we chose to not go here. Shows/Comedy- We didn't do any of these, but the guy in the piano bar everybody on the ship was talking how bad he was and it was very bad (every time we past by we would cringe and give each other the look like, its bad Bands- We always loved the bands on the Carnival ships this main band was our least liked. They had a single guy singing in the Red Frog which was good, they had two duo's which were good but the nightly band in the Ocean Plaza really wasen't that good, the guy was off beat on so many songs and well they just didn't play music that people wanted to hear....you ask me why I know this, they didn't have a crowd and really nobody was dancing, but on the last evening they got their act together and everybody had a great time. BREEZE ADDITIONAL PROS: The entire staff everywhere extremely friendly (Carnival always was) Alchemy Bar the Best and the bartenders overly accomodating and entertaining especially Nicola!! Vera was very nice too. On the Elation I had the Cheers and was unable to specify particular alcohol brands to their "signature drinks" but this ship accommodated me each time to what I asked for Photography didn't bother us at all, in fact, my other half was saying no but asked them to pose and took their photo and said they find it on deck 3, they always laughed Cheers package worked extremely well for us, we also had bottled water, perrier, lattes/espresso/coffee. (we had the drinks on us card as it was a premier cruise but wanted the Cheers) The cakes on board this ship so yummy!! Embarkation and debarkation the best we ever had in all my 91 cruises Bartenders came around the pool area and never hassle you and they always showed up asking us if we needed anything else as we had drinks out there each day BREEZE ADDITIONAL NEGATIVES: Thrill theatre only was open during evening hours, this is a premier cruise so we were in the casino after dinner each night so didn't get the chance trying this, wished they were open in the day No movie was shown in the afternoon This casino was the most SMOKEY out of all my 90 other cruises, real bad issue, no ventilation that worked well, very bad. Breakfast buffet no longer had assortments of rolls, English muffins, people asked for bran or blueberry muffins these are done away with, but they did have chocolate muffins The pools on this ship are the SMALLEST I ever seen on any ship, what were they thinking! It looked like a can of sardines, people all crowded among eachother The crust on the bottom of the pizza is so thin so when you pick up a slice it bends and the cheese runs off The butter in the breakfast buffet no longer has the butter packets, they have a huge tub so many people forgot to get the butter or didn't see it and had to go back and couldn't help asking the person there if they can get some, which held up the line more and the same goes for the syrup....they really need to place these items on a separate area so they can stop adding to the hold ups of the buffet line This ship was VERY CROWDED and we found ourselves in traffic jams in so many places. They added the railings around the Ocean Plaza and Alchemy bar to mention two places which caused less space for the people to walk back and fourth and caused us feeling the ship had too many people. Even at the buffets felt the same way. We did smell "sewage smell" on our deck 2 as well as places on deck 3 the last two days When you enter any of the ladies rooms in the public areas the stalls are too tight/small, I have black and blues on the front of my left thigh due to the door always hitting me, while literally cramming myself inside next to the wall to get the door closed and open (I am 5'6" and 151 pounds, certainly not over weight) Many times the ladies room at the aft was flooded and closed. MDR difficult to get that second drink as the waiters/servers are so busy and overworked with too many tables to take care for at one time Miss the tasting bar, they did not offer this OTHER CHANGES They don't give you straws but if you ask for one they gladly give it to you and there are no longer the umbrellas in the drinks they did away with these. They no longer leave a pen in the room but a small pencil and some paper which is fine. PREMIER CRUISE- My other half came back with over 3k and I only lost $400 which is nothing since we spent most of our nights in the casino and sea day afternoons. Upon first getting our stateroom there was a bag that contained two drinks on us cards, 2 lanyards, 2 decks of cards. We also received towels each, gourmet cookies, a bottle of wine of our choice (they give you a coupon stating which types and kinds of wine we can choose and we can get it at dinner), a $75 credit to seafood shack which we did not use, 2 huge bottles of water (yes water). The casino had raffles and such but we did not win a thing. This casino host I never seen, nor did my other half see either. He was not noticeable in the casino as other cruise casino offers we had in the past. The bar staff always came up to me asking if I wanted a drink. In the past the roulette table stakes were always higher but it remained at a $5 minimum which was very nice. If you have any questions, I try to answer them. We did not get off at any of the ports, due to my needing a knee replacement and wore a knee brace. The ship overall is extremely clean and constantly you will see workers cleaning day and night. A special thank you to our new friends, Executive Chef Santos and Chef Nikon who made sure we got some special treatment and goodies in the specialty restaurants, thank you and you made us feel very special, it was nice hanging out with you a couple of evenings Chef Santosh! I have to tell everybody here one thing, my other half said to Chef Santosh you need to have your own cooking show and you know what his answer was "That would not be good, I want to be here and make people happy".
  23. Does anyone know what theme nights are on the Breeze or where to find them?
  24. Hi everyone, hoping to get some help. Our family of four (kids 9&7) are scheduled on the Breeze in February 2020 currently booked in a Spa Balcony, we are looking forward to the Spa, especially on the Breeze. However, in the past we have always had some type of Suite, the extra room is always great for the four of us. Would it be beneficial to upgrade to a Ocean Suite, at my cost? We understand that we would loose the free spa access for DH and myself. We planned on using it when the kids were at kids club anyway. Any insight would be helpful, TIA!
  25. Hi all! If we would like to be ashore relatively quickly after the Breeze is cleared at our ports of call, are we looking at long lines and back-ups to get off the ship or is it a relatively streamlined process? We we are considering plans for St.Thomas specifically on the Eastern itinerary. The ship doesn’t arrive until 11:30 AM and we will have a 6:00 dinner time back onboard, so the time on shore is somewhat limited. In a perfect world we’d just skip MDR dinner and spend more time ashore, but our daughter must eat gluten free so eating in the Dining Room really is best for us. Any insight into what it’s like getting off the Breeze in St. Thomas appreciated! Thanks!
