A long-time friend of mine takes her family (her, DH, DD9, DD11) on 2 cruises a year. They have sailed DCL, RCI, and Carnival. This last Carnival cruise was a few weeks ago on the Breeze. I specifically asked her about it when she returned and they said they loved it! One thing she mentioned off-hand was that Carnival had changed the decor to be less Vegas-y, if that makes any sense. I trust her opinion--she and I have similar tastes. We don't like casinos, we don't drink much, and we want our vacations to have a certain level of classiness, for lack of a better word. I expect the rooms and public spaces to be well maintained, the staff to be courteous, to feel safe, etc. I don't want to feel like I'm in Daytona Beach for a budget Spring Break in college. Those days were fun, but now I have a family and I'd like to be pampered just a wee bit on vacation Granted, I don't expect it to be Seabourn for that price!

I say go for it! The Breeze is a brand new ship and she sails a longer itinerary--this *should* mean fewer college students in a party frame of mind. YMMV, of course. And now as I post this, my DH is asking if we can book the Breeze for his birthday cruise. As he puts it, mommy gets to pick the "expensive" DCL cruise and daddy gets to pick the "cheaper" Carnival cruise. Whatever makes him happy! Have a great cruise!
