Onboard Carnival Cruise Line’s new Carnival Breeze, we have received a barrage of questions about everything from dining options to which side of the cabin is the sofa located on. Those booked on the new ship as well as those considering bookings are looking for detailed information like never before. Today, let’s get going with one of the most frequently asked questions.
Ronald J from Falls City, Nebraska writes, “I know this is a dream class boat and have sailed on the Carnival Dream. Is it laid out about the same?”
Ronald, first of all, thanks for your city of Falls City. Many years ago I drove there from my then home of Kansas City when I turned 19 to buy hard liquor for all my friends who were not. It was one of the few times in my life when I could buy popularity and it worked marvelously.
Yes, the Breeze is a Dream class vessel and like other Carnival ships, you’ll feel right at home here with many of the major features located in similar areas. The big showroom is in the front, the one the cruise line is occasionally not sure what to do with is located in the back. On the way we find a piano bar, dance/disco venue and other features in about the same areas as they have been as far back as the Fantasy class vessels.
Still, there are a number of new features that we have discussed here as part of this ship and part of Carnival’s Funship 2.0 initiative, currently being rolled out to the rest of the fleet in one form or another. That’s going to be the big difference and one that this frequent Carnival guest is giddy about. Other past guests I talked to also share that viewpoint and most commonly say, “I wish all the ships could be like this” or “this is like a dream come true”
The differences in layout have brought new life to spaces that were probably doing OK as they were and upgraded existing dream/fleet signature venues too. The Serenity area is one great example of this.
Every other “adults-only” Serenity area I have ever been on commonly had kids running through it from time to time, pretty much blowing the “adults-only” promise. On this ship, there is so much for kids to do via the Sports Square, kid-specific areas like Club O2 and the like, that kids are rarely seen high up in the Serenity area.
Basically, if you liked Carnival Dream, you are going to be head over heels in love with Carnival Breeze. You mentioned that you are booked on Breeze after she arrives in Miami. Let us know how that goes for you. I think you will be impressed.
Another great source of information is the Carnival Cruise Line’s website, where all things Breeze are on display including accurate deck plans (there are some out there that are not) and a variety of interesting information.
