Carnival Cruise Line has always been proud of it’s outrageous decor and feel. It usually takes a few days to adapt to the atmosphere and sometimes you never do.
A cruise line executive once told me that when passengers board a Carnival ship he wanted them to now they weren’t in their living room.
My description of a Fun Ship has always been “out there.”
Well, things are changing … beginning with the brand new Carnival Breeze. The 130,000-ton, 3,690-passenger ship has a surprising modern decor.
However, don’t expect bland. Carnival fans will be relieved that the color scheme will remain bright, including staterooms with yellow and blue striped cushions an drapes.
“Carnival Breeze has a different look and feel,” says Carnival president and CEO Gerry Cahill.“It’s a little more contemporary, a little more Caribbean.…We are a fun-and-sun brand at our core, and the new design reflects that.”
One of my Carnival pet peeves has always been the dark, closed-in feeling onboard, unlike other modern cruise lines. Carnival Breeze breaks the mold with more indoor-outdoor spaces.- including Ocean Plaza with lanais with hot tubs and indoor eateries and entertainment.
You can expect the enhancements – along with the new branded dining options – to be added to other Carnival ships over the next few years.
