The new Carnival ship is made for real interactivity for kids of all ages - and not only in the virtual sense.
The SportsZone has a Rope Course, water slides, SplashZone, games, Mini-golf and more
Master cruise director and "Ambassador of Fun" at Carnival, John Heald, starts out his introductory video to Carnival Breeze by saying... "It's absolutely the right name for her. Really is incomparable, we've never done anything like this."
Okay - it seems like the "perfect" name for a description like that would be the "Carnival Prototype" or the "Nonpareil," but the point is not lost on me that Carnival Breeze is a true departure from previous Carnival ships in many ways - from interior décor to food and entertainment offerings.
To get a better idea of what's in store for the people going to Europe to sail on Breeze this summer I just perused a number of preview videos and pictures online. As I did, I was struck by a recurring theme about the new ship: real life interactivity.
The outside adult lounge is the same as the EPIC, however with the Epic it was only for people booked into VIP suites. I must say that I am very impressed with this ship, it really is the best I have seen of Carnival!
I only have just over a month before the Cruisemates Carnival Breeze Mediterranean cruise. I am really looking forward to this cruise and the ship. It will be interesting to see what these new innovations are like first hand.

I am about to book the Breeze for next May - but it is soooooooo expensive I pray it is worth it! Main reason - the ship of course but 4 ports that I've never been to. Grand Turk, Dominican Republic, Aruba and Curaceo. Can anyone tell me about these ports? I love the fact the date I'm picking is an 8 night cruise --- but I hate the fact that I don't get home until Sunday night late........only to go back to reality so early Monday (besides missing my puppies..lol). Any feedback on the ship, these ports and/or itinerary? Thanks...
The ship is big and extremely active - how expensive is it out of curiousity?
Esssentially, it is the same floor plan as the Dream and Magic ( by Carnival) which are already out, but the decor is far more subdued leading people to believe she may draw a slightly less rowdy crowd.
Grand Turk, Dominican Republic, Aruba and Curaceo...
I have found Grand Turk & Aruba to be pretty quiet, not much shopping near the port or much in the way of beaches. Curacao is the most interesting for its shopping & picture taking with its Dutch architecture. DR - it depends on where you go. If it is Samana it is also very quiet, but if it is the capital city it is active and has lots of history.
