Review of Carnival Breeze

Launched in 2012, Carnival Breeze is the 3rd Dream class vessel in the Carnival Cruise Lines fleet, together with Carnival Dream (debuted in September 2009) and Carnival Magic (debuted in May 2011).

History - construction and ownership

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is an US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner). CCL was founded in 1972 as independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian). Carnival Cruise Lines has Corporation's largest fleet as both number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). CCL has over 1/5 of cruise industry's worldwide market.

Carnival Breeze cruise ship

The 130,000-ton, 3,690-passenger cruise ship Carnival Breeze was launched on June 3, 2012. This ship introduced the line's first complete "Fun Ship 2.0" concept. It is a fleetwide initiative concentrated on food, drink and amusement, allowing Carnival cruise passengers to tour, taste and laugh their way through new onboard places. Breeze is the first Fun Ship in decades that was not constructed by Joe Farcus - the man that dreamed in neon and polished marble. Much of what is found on the Carnival ships Dream and Magic is on the Breeze too.

Cruise itinerary program

Carnival Breeze cruise liner spent its ianugural cruise season in Europe, starting with a 12-night maiden voyage on June 3, 2012. Followed a set of 12-night itineraries in the Mediterranean Sea out of Barcelona Spain (through Oct 25, 2012). Next was the 13-night Transatlantic cruise (Nov 6 – Nov 21) to Miami, where the ship was home-porte for year-round, alternating 6- and 8-night Caribbean cruises from Miami FL.

The current Carnival Breeze itinerary program is based on departures from Port of Miami Florida. On its Florida round-trips, the ship visits popular islands and ports of call in the Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean. Starting December 2016, the ship will be leaving from Port of Galveston Texas to Western Caribbean and Florida-­Bahamas ports of call.

Cabins

Carnival Breeze has a total number of 1845 cabins (of which 54 Suites, 851 Balcony rooms, 368 adjoining) in 34 grades. Most Carnival Breeze staterooms are 185-220-sq.foot insides (719), oceanview (221) and balcony (851, with verandas of 35-75 sq.feet). Breeze also has the "cove balcony" rooms. Located on Deck 2, these 185-sq.foot cabins are made intimate as they are shielded from overlookers by the ship's lifeboats. Largest accommodations on the ship are the Grand Suites located on deck 7.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Breeze is the line's first Carnival cruise vessel to feature a stand-alone sushi restaurant - Bonsai Sushi. It is decked out with koi kites, Bonsai trees and artwork made by graffiti painters Erni Vales. The restaurant offers sushi, sashimi and rolls along with bento boxes and "sushi vessel".
