Carnival Cruise Ship Resumes Service After Huge Refurbishment

Another Carnival cruise ship has completed a two-week dry dock which has added new features.

Carnival Breeze has resumed service after spending the last two weeks undergoing a major refurbishment at the Grand Bahama shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas. The ship added some new options which guests can now enjoy on its first sailing back which departed Galveston, Texas yesterday, April 30.

One of the highlights of the new additions is the new Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, an open-air free-of-charge venue offering a variety of BBQ favorites. Another popular feature added which can already be enjoyed throughout the fleet is the Alchemy Bar, a vintage cocktail “pharmacy” that’s the go-to spot for guests seeking a unique bar experience with mixologists in lab coats who “prescribe” refreshing concoctions from different elixirs and ingredients or create guests’ own custom-created libations.

The entire vessel was given an upgrade with new carpets, tiling, decor and a lot more across all hotel operations. Cruise Hive has been updating readers with the latest photos during the renovation and it’s been nice to see the process. General ship maintenance was also done and the entire ship’s hull had a fresh coat of paint.

Carnival Breeze is a Dream-class ship and two different weekly Western Caribbean itineraries. The ship is 130,000 gross tons and can carry over 3,600 passengers at double occupancy.
