LONDON, May 23, 2011 -
With Details of the Hotly Anticipated Carnival Breeze Beginning to
Appear, CruiseLineFans Takes a Closer Look at what Makes this Ship
Cruise line giant Carnival Cruise Lines recently released images of the
new décor for its cabins aboard the highly anticipated Carnival Breeze. The
artist renderings show a distinct departure from typical Carnival Cruise ship
décor and even the newly debuted Carnival Magic, but it is not just décor
that will distinguish Carnival Breeze from her sister ship. Here
CruiseLineFans (www.cruiselinefans.com/hc/) take a few moments to
delve into Carnival Breeze and what passengers can expect.
Carnival Breeze Primer
Carnival Breeze (
is a Dream-class cruise ship being built in the Fincantieri-Monfalcone
shipyards and set to hit the water for Carnival Cruise Lines (
www.carnival.com/) in June 2012. Her sister ship is another
Dream-class vessel, Carnival Magic. Her European home port will be Barcelona,
Spain and she will eventually cruise out of Miami, FL in the United States.
At 1,004 feet long, Carnival Breeze is capable of comfortably transporting
3,690 guests and 1,386 staff to destination ports all over Europe and the
Carnival Cruise Lines ships have long displayed a common colour scheme
while maintaining unique and compelling differences amongst all its Carnival
Cruise Lines ships. Joe Farcus has being involved with the aesthetic effort
behind ship design at Carnival since 1977. He's left his mark on ships as far
back as the Carnivale and Festivale and as recently as Carnival Dream. Mr.
Farcus will still be actively designing ship interiors, but with a renewed
focus on future ships at Costa Cruises.
The peach and tan interiors of the previous Dream-class Carnival Cruise
Lines ships, Carnival Magic (
) and Carnival Dream (
), will be updated to include cooler deep blue and sandstone tan accents. The
inspiration behind the colour scheme shift is inspired by the natural hues of
the Caribbean destinations Carnival Breeze will be bringing passengers to.
Artist renderings of Carnival Breeze cabins display modern yet subtle
design elements such as multi-use areas, flat screen TVs and ample closet and
We're sure the Fun Ship design team has a few surprises up their sleeve
in time for June 2012, but we do know that the Carnival Breeze will also have
the wildly popular Carnival WaterWorks, RedFrog Pub and Cloud 9 Spa which
guests and journalists have raved about while on the recent Carnival Magic
Families are still a main focus of Carnival Cruise Lines and Carnival
Breeze's facilities are geared towards several tiered age groups - Camp
Carnival for the youngest cruisers, Circle "C" for young teens and Club O2
for the hard-to-please young adults crowd. Carnival Breeze is allowing
parents some extra special late nights out together with new extended options
for supervised care until as late as 3 AM.
Carnival Breeze will start out her life on the ocean during a one-time
cruise from Venice to Barcelona on June 3, 2012. Ports of call on this unique
voyage are scheduled to include Dubrovnik, Croatia; Athens, Greece; Izmir,
Turkey; Messina (Sicily), Olbia (Sardinia), Rome (Civitavecchia), and Livorno

Upon completion of this voyage, Carnival Breeze will begin a season of
12-day Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona until October 25, 2012. These

Venice; Civitavecchia (Rome), and Messina. The June 15 and September 7
voyages visit Palma de Mallorca, Spain and the Aug. 14 and 26 voyages visit

After using Barcelona a summer home port it's off to her new home in
Miami, FL via a 15-day transatlantic crossing. Ports of call on this voyage
will include Palma de Mallorca and Malaga, Spain; Las Palmas, Canary Islands;
Antigua and St. Maarten.
Departing from Miami, FL, Carnival Breeze will host passengers on
