Cruise Ship Carnival Breeze

Carnival Cruise lines will have a new ship called Carnival Breeze next year. Although the ship's length (269.2 meters) is shorter than Oasis of the Seas - the largest cruise ship in the world at the moment - which is operated by the Royal Caribbean International, it provides more spaces for various activities that travelers can enjoy while sailing with this new vessel. Having a gross tonnage of 128,500 tons, this vessel is going to have 1,845 cabins that will be used to accommodate 3,690 passengers in double occupancy arrangement. A total of 1,386 staff will run the ship. According to Wikipedia, this cruise ship will enter service in June 2012. European ports which the cruise ship will make as her port of calls are Venice, Messina (Sicily), Athens, Izmir, Olibia (Sardinia), Marseilles, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Las Palmas, Barcelona, Monaco, Livorno, Rome, Naples, and Dubrovnik.

As the European home port for the cruise ship, Barcelona has been famous for its art and culture heritage. There are a number of interesting museums and art galleries which travelers can visit. If what they want are things outside the conventional tourist destinations, activities such as camping on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, diving at Alguer del Berruguell algae reserve and dining at The Beach Club La Raspa are recommended alternatives. For cruise itineraries in the Caribbean islands, she will make Miami as her home port.
Carnival Breeze is the third vessel of the Dream Class cruise ship besides Carnival Dream and Carnival Magic that are now operated by Carnival Cruise Lines. It is being built by Fincantieri - an Italian shipbuilder whose shipyards have been constructing cruise ships since early 1900s.
From the official website of, itineraries for the Caribbean islands have been offered to holiday makers. The duration of the tours ranges from 2 to 8 days where the ports of call will be Nassau, the Bahamas, Grand turk, Falmouth - Jamaica, St. Thomas, Antiqua, Tortola - BVI. With secluded white sandy beaches, coral reef and tropical resorts, Caribbean islands have long been in the top choice of cruising destinations among holiday makers. There are a wide range of activities travelers can enjoy on board this luxurious cruise ship from reading while sunbathing to swimming, and to gambling at the ship's casino. The interior of the staterooms has new decoration that is equipped with television, full bathroom with showers and supported by a 24-hour stateroom service.
In recent years more cruise ships are now sailing in the Caribbean waters. Yet, the number of the ships that is needed to cater the increasing number of tourists coming from new industrialized countries such as China, India, and the Asean countries is still not enough if itineraries for European and Carribean tours are aggressively promoted there. by Charles Roring
