Carnival Breeze Overview

Scads of fun at 130,000 tons and carrying some 3,690 passengers double occupancy, Carnival Breeze represents where Carnival Cruise Lines is headed as it executes Fun Ship 2.0 across its fleet.

Introduced in June 2012, Carnival Breeze is the newest example of the $500 million fleet enhancement program that will transform the line’s on-board experience through branded spaces and celebrity partnerships.

The initiative on Carnival Breeze includes partnerships with George Lopez, who serves as the line’s creative director for comedy to enhance the fleetwide Punchliner Comedy Clubs; and Food Network personality Guy Fieri, who developed a new free burger venue called Guy’s Burger Joint; as well as top brands such as Hasbro.

New food and beverage concepts round out the mix, such as the poolside RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar and BlueIguana Cantina, along with entertainment choices and Playlist Productions and a partnership with celebrity song master DJ IRIE.

With Carnival Breeze, Carnival executives say the company is returning to its roots of being a “Caribbean centric” cruise line, a “fun and sun brand at its core,” and the new ship’s design reflects that. That’s why Carnival is emphasizing the outer areas of Carnival Breeze, as Carnival passengers have indicated that they want to feel the essence of the sunny climates where Carnival ships sail — and not be clammed up indoors.

New Dining Venues

In designing Carnival Breeze, the company created a few more outdoor spaces. You’ll find one example at Ocean Plaza, which has the Plaza Bar, The Taste Bar and Plaza Café on deck five. The latter serves speciality coffees and teas as well as pastries and other confections.
