Accommodations on Carnival Breeze

Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Breeze makes its way just a bit closer to its permanent home in America every day.  Launched last June, it spent the summer cruising Europe.  After a transatlantic crossing it will take eager passengers on Caribbean cruises out of Miami.

Before taking their cruise, each passenger has to book their stateroom.  Other than those who book a minimum guaranteed category in hopes of an upgrade, people have to pick just which sort of cabin they want to spend their cruise in.  Deciding factors include price, number of people in the room, and amenities desired.  The same type of room has different category listings based on its location within the ship.

The best bargain comes in the form of a standard inside room.  It provides the necessities, a place to sleep, somewhere to put your things, and a bathroom.

Balcony rooms have similar square footage to the ocean view rooms, with the addition of a verandah for a bit of private outdoor space.  The Breeze has a new category of balcony rooms called cove balcony.  These are located on a lower deck than the other balcony rooms and the balcony is swathed in a protective solid cove rather than a full clear panel on the outer edge like the balconies on higher level rooms.

Some rooms have space for extra passengers in the form of beds that drop from the ceiling and/or couches that fold out into beds.  These features are available in a variety of room categories.

Carnival Breeze Standard Suite

Passengers willing to pay a premium for more space opt to book suites.  These grow ever larger from the standard suite offering a little more space than the balcony room, to the larger premium suites and biggest of all grand suites.

The Breeze also offers spa rooms.  These are balcony or suite cabins located near the spa and decorated in softer more soothing colors.  Use of some spa facilities completes the spa room package.

Smoking is no longer allowed on balconies.  The deck 5 public smoking area is on the port side, but on the Lido it’s on starboard so be careful where you book your balcony room if smoke bothers you. The deck 5 public smoking area allows cigars as well as cigarettes so particularly avoid booking near that area if you are sensitive to smoke.
