Top dining options on board
“The quintessential Carnival vibe emerged with a bang when we arrived on the Lido Deck with the main pool, crowded deck chairs, and giant movie screen. This was clearly Fun Ship Central — high volume, throbbing music with young people having a grand time, and with many older folks, like us, looking on and wondering if we should seek quieter spaces or join the gyrations.”
“Carnival Breeze is a big floating playground, carrying around 5,000 passengers when full. It has lots of facilities for young families with children, who will love the outdoor pool deck and its facilities. Serenity is an adults-only, extra-charge retreat, with two large hot tubs on deck.”
