Carnival Cruise Line launches new flagship

The largest ship in Carnival Cruise Line’s European fleet has entered service in the Mediterranean.

The 130,000-tonne Carnival Breeze set sail on its inaugural 12-day cruise from Venice to Barcelona yesterday with a full capacity of 3,690 passengers.

The flagship will run a series of 12-day cruises from Barcelona until October 25 when it relocates to Miami for year-round six and eight-day Caribbean cruises from November 24.

Breeze, the 24th ‘fun ship’ in the Carnival Cruise Lines fleet, includes a number of new features.

Multi-dimensional special effects that stimulate viewers’ senses to make them feel as if they are part of a film feature in the Thrill Theatre.

It is the first ship in the fleet to feature all of the entertainment elements of the line’s ‘Fun Ship 2.0’ enhancement initiative.

These include Hasbro, The Game Show, with larger than life adaptations of the brand’s board games, and Playlist Productions, which combines live performances with high-tech LED staging and special effects.

Water slides and a 300-gallon drenching bucket feature as part of the WaterWorks on deck while SportSquare includes a suspended ropes course, miniature golf course and an outdoor fitness area complete with exercise equipment and full running track.

New dining options include Bonsai Sushi, the line’s first full-service sushi restaurant, a free open-air barbecue called Fat Jimmy's C-Side BBQ, and The Comfort Kitchen, a casual poolside spot for American-style comfort food.

Other choices range from Guy’s Burger Joint, developed with American Food Network personality Guy Fieri, to the Mexican-themed BlueIguana Cantina and Cucina del Capitano, a family-style Italian restaurant.

President and chief executive Gerry Cahill said: “Carnival Breeze represents the continued evolution of our product, offering a huge array of branded experiences for our guests and inviting public spaces each with its own personality and character, all enhanced by the spirited fun that makes a Carnival cruise so memorable.”
