From DJ Irie’s musical vision to create atmosphere throughout the ship, to Playlist Productions blowing passengers away with their talented performances on a state-of-the-art stage, Carnival Breeze offered the best line up of entertainment I have experienced thus far on a ship.
A big call, yes, but the calibre of performances was second-to-none and truly involved the audience on so many levels.
The high-energy “Motor City”, “The Brits”, “Divas” and “Latin Nights” were shown regularly throughout our voyage to ensure that passengers had the greatest chance possible to experience the all-new productions offered by Carnival Cruise Lines.
A cast of seven sang and danced their way through production numbers that were further enhanced by large sliding high definition LCD screens, Broadway calibre lighting and staging and costumes that perfectly reflected the eras being performed.
Several shows including “Latin Nights” and “Motor City” involved the audience by starting a theatre-wide conga line at the end of the performance that guided passengers into the lobby to the dance floor.
A floating stage housed DJ Alx who spun tunes for the cast and audience to dance to.
Who needs a standing ovation when you can show your appreciation in dance?
Punchliner Comedy Club
The Limelight Lounge turned into the Punchliner Comedy Club hosted by George Lopez with six comedians taking to the stage during our voyage.
Family friendly comedy made way for adults only laughs late at night at shows that were often “standing room only”.
This cruiser’s favourite comedians, Jason Blanchard and Smiley Joe Wiley were a welcome reprieve from the not-so-funny Austin Night and Tom Pepper who were not really my cup of tea…that’s the best thing about the variety offered aboard Breeze there were so many comedians on offer over the two weeks that there was certain to be a comedian for every passenger!
Hasbro The Game Show
Ever wanted to be a part of a television game show? Or even part of the studio audience? Then you need to sail aboard Carnival Breeze!
Partnering with Hasbro to bring such games as Connect 4, Monopoly and Simon Flash to life on stage, cruise director Butch embodied the perfect game show host in the packed out Ovation Theatre.
Encouraging the audience to get involved, contestants are chosen via a range of Trivial Pursuit questions…and a lot of jumping in the air.
Even the commercial breaks were factored in with old-school ads for Hasbro games shown on the big screens above the stage.
With board game packs as prizes, this show was a hit cruisers of all ages and was only shown on sea days.
