Default Wow Breeze reviews stopped me from going

I made my reservations for a back to back in September and had put them on 24 hour hold.Started to look over reviews and wow were they negative. I couldn't believe how negative they were for a relatively new ship. Needless to say this is going to be a pass on this cruise.

People will post more negative then they will post positive. I have sailed the Breeze and I have to say it is my favorite Carnival ship. The outdoor areas on the promenade are a true plus and it has the best pool area of any Carnival ship.

The cabins are the standard Carnival size cabin and the food was excellent.

It is not your "standard" Carnival ship and that is the basis of many of the negative reviews.

Take care,
Mike

Cruised Breeze this past May , loved , loved ,loved the ship.....ignor the reviews and go. I've read many great reviews and some bad , read the good ones. Breeze is Carnivals best ship hands down. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

First, where were you reading all these 'negative' reviews? If it's on that other forum site, it's full of people who love to complain about everything! They even complain when the water is too wet, the sun is too bright, and the beach is too sandy. So don't listen to what they have to say.

Based on my client's feedback, everything Mike said is true.

Ignore the negative comments and have a great time - after all, it is what you make it.

So much is subjective and there are many unhappy, chronic complainers out there. Attitude certainly influences perception.

I live my own live and don't pay attention to what others write.

That's quite funny Zyd... That's why you do your cruise web site; so no one will read it, or pay attention to anything you say?

BTW... I wrote the CruiseMates review of Breeze, and enjoyed it. I personally liked it better than any of the other Carnival ships.

Also, in my Blog post on the home page last week I wrote about the importance of finding a ship that fits...Cruisemates Blog See What Ship Fits ? Kuki

My website is really for me to capture my experiences and memories. I share them because I can.

If you notice, I post lots of pictures and few words on my website. I let others see my experiences and decide for themselves if it is something they might want to do (or eat) or not. There is no way I can answer that question for them.

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I have sailed "Breeze", and though she's not my favorite ship, "Breeze" is certainly a good cruise. The lovely Mrs., on the other hand, LOVED "Breeze", and has rebooked. I wouldn't hesitate to sail this Fun Ship again as well. No problems!

I'm sot sure I would let other people I don't know scare me off of a cruise I had planned..such subjective elements comprise ones review, also ones personality....
