Carnival Breeze has a new way to have fun on a cruise ship. For a small fee, passengers can buy either a one ride ticket, or the much better unlimited full cruise pass to visit the brand new 4-D Thrill Theater.
In the small theater, a short movie about 20 minutes long plays after guests don their 3-D glasses. In addition to the 3-D effects onscreen, passengers get involved in the action in more ways than one. As the action happens on the screen, the seats may move, making people feel as if that action just happened to them.
Sometimes the character on screen moves very quickly. A blast of air accompanies the action so theater goers feel as if the wind of that movement blew past them. Then perhaps that onscreen character sneezes or gets splashed. Suddenly those watching feel that wet spray too.
Short for a movie, or long for a ride, this theater really puts people into the action of these family-friendly shows. Episodes playing during our cruise included Ice Age, Happy Feet, Polar Express, Planet Earth Shallow Seas, Sponge Bob and Speed Racer.
The small fee paid for the unlimited pass was well worth getting to attend each and every show. Comparatively, at over half the price of the unlimited pass, the one ride ticket is not such a good deal.
