I'm on the Carnival Breeze... on week two of back-to-back cruises. Just before embarking on this vacation, I was fortunate enough to purchase the brand new Canon Digital Rebel T5i... which is the latest, greatest Canon DSLR to hit the market. I've been putting it to the test, and have come up with some pretty good photos. The most interesting thing to come from the camera, though, has been some time lapse videos of our departures from Nassau and and the port of Miami.

Take a look at the video of the departure from Nassau at http://youtu.be/f1T_TrNXelk
You can see both the Disney Dream and the Carnival Sensation as we head out to sea.

The Miami video is at http://youtu.be/pRcKN8YIDE8
Carnival Liberty is visible at :11 and :22
Disney Wonder is visible at :23
Check out all the small boat traffic at :51 and 1:28
Beautiful South Beach at 1:36

Of course, I also took a lot of still photos. Here are a few of my favorites:


Carnival Breeze docked in Grand Turk



Our spa balcony cabin


The beautiful decor of the ship



The new pizza... which is hugely better than the old pizza.


Take a look at LOTS more pictures at http://www.zimfamilycockers.com/CarnivalBreeze.html

Enjoy!

Wow, excellent review, and love the photos. I'd love one of those camera's too, but wow, there a bit pricy for me.
Thanks for all the info and photos. Hope you continue to have smooth sailing.

The review, which includes LOTS more photos, is at http://www.zimfamilycockers.com/CarnivalBreeze.html

And be aware that we are only halfway through our back-to-back cruises... so there WILL be updates to the web page in the coming days. Check it again from time to time for more photos and stories from the ship. We have four very interesting ports coming up this week... so there should be a lot more to add to the web page.

I am on the ship with you. Things are calming down now. We had winds up to 55 MPH this afternoon and the ship was a rockin. It is calming down now, and the winds are more reasonable. Should be a great evening.

The camera was on a tripod on deck 11, one deck above the aft pool. I was sitting in a comfy chair about 20 feet away... just keeping an eye on things, and watching people's reactions as they walked behind the camera... which appeared to be unattended and which was making a loud click of the shutter at one second intervals.

I only had to yell at one idiot, a kid about 10 years old, who thought it would be funny to lean out over the railing and put his face out in front of the camera... with tongue fully extended!

I have a lot of other videos to share... but there's some editing to do... and that will have to wait until I get back home.

Today we are in Grand Turk... and I am writing to you from poolside at Margaritaville. Life is good!

I was delighted to discover that there's free Wi-Fi here at Margaritaville. What a wonderful world!
