Carnival takes delivery of Breeze

At a traditional maritime handover ceremony held earlier today at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, Carnival Cruise Lines took delivery of the new 130,000-ton Carnival Breeze, the 24th vessel in the line’s fleet. Carnival Breeze will depart on its inaugural cruise from Venice on June 3, operating a special 12-day Mediterranean cruise that ends in Barcelona June 15. Following a summer schedule of 12-day Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona that runs through Oct. 25, Breeze will reposition to Miami for year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning Nov. 24, becoming Carnival Cruise Lines’ largest South Florida-based ship. Carnival Breeze is the line’s first ship to feature the Thrill Theater, an immersive multi-dimensional special effects experience that makes viewers feel as if they’re part of the movie. Other highlights of the ship include WaterWorks offering “splash-tastic”water slides and a 300-gallon drenching bucket, and SportSquare, an expansive recreation area with a suspended ropes course, miniature golf course, outdoor fitness area and more. New dining options on Carnival Breeze include Bonsai Sushi, the line’s first full-service sushi restaurant, a free open-air barbecue venue called Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ, and The Comfort Kitchen, a casual poolside spot for American-style comfort food.
