***Hints and Tips for the Carnival Breeze

The beautiful Carnival Breeze was launched June 3, 2012. There is a 3690 passenger double occupancy capacity. She is 1004 feet in length. I sailed on the Breeze in January 2013. I never had to wait in line or wait for a seat. Great layout. New beautiful and fresh decor. Our group had a great time. Here are some hints and tips for the Carnival Breeze.

-Visit the Relaxation Room in the Spa area. There are all types of Bigelow teas and also orange and lemon water. Relaxing music plays in the background. Great view of front of ship.  See previous post for details and pictures.

-Enjoy the Hasbro Game shows. Lots of fun. Great for families. Connect 4, Scrabble, Monopoly, Simon, Sorry…
