Carnival Breeze is a Dream-class cruise ship of Carnival Cruise Line which was laid down on 20 November 2008, launched on 16 September 2011 and completed on 3 June 2012.[4]

Concept and construction[edit]

Carnival Breeze is the third and last Dream-class ship built for Carnival but Costa Crociere also operates a Dream Class ship. Fincantieri Monfalcone of Italy is the builder; the Dream class vessels were the largest passenger ships ever built by Fincantieri[5] at the time of their construction.

The ship's godmother is Tracy Wilson Mourning, a motivational speaker and founder of the Honey Shine girls' empowerment charity.[6]

Areas of operation[edit]

From June to November 2012 she sailed out of Barcelona and Venice on Mediterranean cruises, and afterwards from Miami to the Caribbean and Bahamas. In May 2016, she moved to Galveston. In April 2017 the Carnival Breeze entered dry dock, at the Grand Bahamas Shipyard, for the first time since entering service in 2012. Carnival Breeze is currently homeported in Port Canaveral, Fl after moving from Galveston, Texas in September 2018, she continues cruising to the Caribbean.[7]
