Carnival Breeze To The Caribbean – Day 2 – At Sea

My second day aboard the Carnival Breeze began with the gentle rocking back and forth of the ship – today we were at sea.

After getting ready for the day, I made my way up to the Lido deck to find some breakfast. The Lido Marketplace offered a wide variety of breakfast favorites such as omelets, a plethora of cereals, and of course bacon. This morning was different though, I wanted to try something for breakfast that no other cruise line offers. I made my way over to the Blue Iguana Cantina, where crew members were preparing breakfast burritos. Not really knowing what I wanted, I chose to have an “everything” burrito. The burrito was filled with eggs, fried onions, grilled ham, lettuce, tomatoes, and the list continues. It was actually very delicious and a great alternative to the usual Lido spread. Plus, I was eating quicker since there was no line for the breakfast burritos.

Our day continued at sea, but the wind began to pick up. At the highest level yesterday, the wind reached somewhere of about 45 knots. Obviously, these unusual wind speeds created some hazards on the upper decks. Due to this, Carnival Waterworks and the SkyCourse were closed for  the entire day. Regardless, guests and myself found other great activities to take part in. Throughout the day, the Carnival Breeze entertainment staff were busy at work setting up Lido games, trivia contests, team challenges, and even corn hole tournaments. I chose to play a round of mini golf with my family. The mini golf is located on the Carnival Breeze’s Sports Square, which is the ship’s main activity area. Here you can find the SkyCourse, SkyTrack, outdoor table games, a basketball court, and of course – mini golf. The mini golf course found aboard the Carnival Breeze is a great improvement from some mini golf courses found on other ships. This new course features both challenging and fun holes to play. Whether it be a sand bunker or a sudden twist in the fairway, this mini golf course will sure challenge you.

As the day was coming to a close, the ship began to enter into the mode for elegant night. Guests left their posts on the Lido deck and headed to their cabins to change into their finest for elegant night. For dinner tonight, we had actually been switched to Your Time Dining, which was in the Sapphire Dining Room. We arrived for our table around 7:30 and after a short wait, we were seated in the beautifully designed dining room. Not only was it elegant night, but it was also lobster night. Obviously, lobster would be my main course. I mean, how could it not be, it’s a cruise tradition after all. Anyway, along with my lobster,  I enjoyed the strawberry bisque and alligator fritters. I’m still not sure what alligator fritters , but in the spirit of eating foods I never do at home, I don’t want to know. Knowing would ruin the experience for me, but nonetheless, it was actually quite good!

The night ended with the main show, Motor City, which as you may have guessed, is a tribute to the time of Motown. Featuring some of the most notorious songs, such as R-E-S-P-E-C-T and ABC 123, the show was a great crowd pleaser. In my opinion, the show’s experience was enhanced by 4 huge LED monitors that were constantly moving around the stage. These monitors were actually used as props and the backdrop for the show. The screens could be moved anywhere and could display any video or still image. If I’m not mistaken, this new technology was brought aboard the Carnival Breeze as a part of the Hasbro Game Show from Fun Ship 2.0. Regardless of where it came from, the new technology with the old style singing created a great, fun time for everybody aboard the Carnival Breeze.
