Carnival Breeze Preview: Branded Features For All

Contents Show

Funnel from below Some of the features on new Carnival Breeze that debuts in a few days,  were first on Carnival Magic. On sister-ship Carnival Magic, those features proved so popular that they were included in Carnival’s FunShip 2.0 initiative, a $500 million upgrade to existing ships in the fleet.  That’s all part of a branding focus that bumps up the onboard experience with 25 unique branded experiences, most all of which are included in the cruise fare.

Carnival Breeze will be the first ship in the Carnival fleet to have all elements of the line’s FunShip 2.0 initiative,  announced last October in New York.  Doug and Matt were on the scene for that announcement, Doug saw FunShip 2.0 rolled out on to Carnival Liberty a bit later and both Doug and Matt will be on board new Carnival Breeze June 15.

FunShip 2.0 (and thus, Carnival Breeze) have a variety of drinking, dining, entertainment, activity and shopping options, mostly all branded.   Here’s the list:

  1. Alchemy Bar
  2. BlueIguana Tequila Bar
