Cabins and Suites

The balcony cabins on the Carnival Breeze are light, airy, and comfortable.

Although the decor is different, the 1,845 cabins and suites on the Carnival Breeze are almost identical in type and configuration to her sister ships, the Carnival Dream and Carnival Magic.

The 719 interior staterooms are the smallest (and least expensive) on the ship, measuring 185 square-feet. For those looking for something larger and more luxurious, the Carnival Breeze has 54 suites, the largest being the Grand Penthouse Suites. Most travelers on the ship will usually choose one of the 851 Carnival Breeze balcony cabins or one of the 221 oceanview cabins without a balcony.

Carnival has added some innovative cabin categories to this class of ship. Families will enjoy the "quint" oceanview cabins, which sleep five and have two baths. Travelers who like to be closer to the water might request a "cove balcony cabin". These cabins are identical to the standard balcony cabin on the inside, but are lower on deck 2. The covered balcony is partially enclosed, making it more cozy and private. The spa cabins adjacent to the Cloud 9 spa have special amenities, and the guests staying in this class have unlimited access to the spa, priority spa appointments, and complimentary fitness classes.

Guests in all the Carnival Breeze cabins must put their key in a slot right inside the door to activate the lights. The upside of this is that you always know where your key is. The downside is that you have to remember to take it out of the slot before closing the door!

The decor of the cabin deck hallways are different than on any other Carnival ship. The doors have light wood that is painted to make them look louvered. It's very realistic and had me fooled for a minute. The wall panels between the doors have large murals of a very beachy tropical scene.
