Carnival Breeze is a Dream-class cruise ship of Carnival Cruise Lines which entered service on June 3, 2012. From June to November 2012 she sailed out of Barcelona and Venice on Mediterranean cruises, and afterwards from Miami to the Caribbean and Bahamas.

Concept and construction[edit]

The vessel under construction in 2012.

Carnival Breeze is the third and last Dream-class ship, with sisters ships Carnival Dream and Carnival Magic. Fincantieri Monfalcone in Italy is the builder, and the Dream class vessels are the largest passenger ships ever built by Fincantieri.[5]

"Carnival Breeze" has the same design as her sisters, with a half-mile exterior promenade, cantilevered whirlpools, and a 23,750 sq ft (2,206 m2) wellness facility. Other features are the WaterWorks aqua park with a 300-foot (91 m)-long corkscrew water slide called Twister and another called The Drainpipe, an indoor/outdoor café with live entertainment venue called Ocean Plaza, and a range of staterooms including deluxe ocean views with two bathrooms, some of which have five berths.[1]

Highlights[edit]

Carnival Breeze and her sisters have the widest variety of activity, dining, and entertainment options of the entire fleet.[1] She features a 4D Cinema called Thrill Theater, outdoor water park, Cloud 9 Spa, jogging track, fitness center, Seaside Theater, Red Frog Pub, Winner's Luck casino and bar, the Liquid Nightclub disco, Punchliner Comedy Club, Sport-square and Hasbro: The Game Show. Other features on Carnival Breeze include the Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse (reservations and fee required), Guy's Burger Joint, which offers burgers custom-created by Food Network chef Guy Fieri, a Comedy Brunch on sea days, the Cucina del Capitano, a family-style Italian eatery with an extensive night time menu (reservations and fee required) and a free lunch time pasta bar, the BlueIguana Cantina, a burrito and taco made to order eatery for both breakfast and lunch, and on sea days an outside Fat Jimmy's C-Side BBQ.
