Cruising is a Breeze on Carnival’s New Ship

Currently sailing from Barcelona, Spain, Carnival Cruises’ new Dream Class ship, the Carnival Breeze, is the cruise line’s first ship to completely utilize the “Fun Ship 2.0” concept, a fleetwide initiative to present new food and entertainment offerings

Launched on June 3, the ship can carry up to 3,690 passengers. It has many of the favorite features of its sister ships, the Carnival Dream and the Carnival Magic, such as a WaterWorks aqua park with a corkscrew slide; an adults-only Serenity area; and Carnival’s private label beer, Thirsty Frog Red, on tap in the Red Frog Pub.

The Breeze also offers lots of new amenities, including incredible dining choices. They include Carnival’s first stand-alone sushi restaurant, Bonsai Sushi; and Guy’s Burger Joint, a product of Carnival’s partnership with Food Network personality Guy Fieri. Carnival says the joint served 1,200 beef-and-bun masterpieces on a single day during the Breeze’s inaugural cruise.

Hungry guests can also enjoy open-air dining at Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ, which serves classic barbeque favorites. On sea days, guests can visit the main dining room for the Punchliner Comedy Brunch, dreamed up by popular comedian George Lopez. The brunch combines laughs from stand-up comedy performances with a delicious, Mexican-inspired brunch.
 
Food is important on the Breeze, but there are also lots of ways to burn up a few extra vacation calories. For example, the Thrill Theater will have you jumping out of your seat with exciting 3-D films and special effects. Or, sing and dance along with Playlist Productions’ high-energy shows, featuring Motown classics, Latin dance hits and more.

 You could also reach for dessert after visiting the gym at the Cloud 9 Spa or taking on SkyCourse, a ropes course that provides a workout with great sea views. The SportSquare area invites everyone to join in a game of foosball, table tennis, basketball, soccer and more.

Long-time Carnival fans will notice something else that’s different about the Breeze – a new décor for Carnival that features fresh Caribbean colors and nature-inspired art.

 The Breeze is now sailing 12-day, round-trip itineraries from Barcelona, taking in Mediterranean ports like Marseilles, France; Rome, Venice and Messina, Italy; and Dubrovnik, Croatia. After a repositioning cruise in November, the ship will home port in Miami and sail a variety of six- and eight-night Caribbean itineraries.
