Carnival Breeze is a Dream-class cruise ship of Carnival Cruise Line 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. As of 2016, she moved to Galveston replacing Carnival Magic
Concept and construction
Carnival Breeze is the third and last Dream-class ship, with sisters ships Carnival Dream and Carnival Magic. Costa Crociere recently took delivery of its first Dream Class ship, Costa Diadema. Fincantieri Monfalcone in Italy is the builder, and the Dream class vessels are the largest passenger ships ever built by Fincantieri.
"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.
Carnival Breeze and her sisters have the widest variety of activity, dining and entertainment options of the entire fleet. She features a 5D 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 the Tandoor Indian restaurant.
Ports of call
Carnival Breeze is currently homeported in Galveston, Texas, and alternates between 7 day Western Caribbean cruises to Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, Mexico, 7 day Western Caribbean cruises to Roatán, Belize, and Cozumel, Mexico; and 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruises to Key West, Florida, Freeport, Bahamas, and Nassau, Bahamas. She will then move to Galveston, Texas replacing the Carnival Magic. She will then begin sailing a series of Western Caribbean cruises starting May 8, 2016.
