Carnival Breeze To Serve Up Two Culinary Firsts

Date Posted: 08 May 2012

Carnival Breeze — one of the most eagerly anticipated ships to arrive in 2012 — is set to introduce two culinary firsts when she debuts on 3rd June.

Carnival has announced that their 130,000 tonne flagship, which will carry 3,700 passengers, will feature the cruise line's first ever sushi restaurant and an open air barbecue. The ship will also boast Guy's Burger Joint, a venue designed by Food Network celebrity cook Guy Fieri, a comedy brunch featuring a menu heavy on Mexican food, inspired by Carnival partner George Lopez, and a New York style hotdog stand.

Bonsai will be Carnival's first venture into offering a full-on sushi experience. The restaurant will offer sushi, sashimi & rolls, as well as bento boxes and sushi ships — which I can only assume is a ship made of sushi. Though Carnival already offer sushi carts onboard other ship, Bonsai will be the first a la carte venue serving freshly made sushi, as opposed to sushi that has been rolled out the night before. The menu will vary from $1 appetizer portions through to their $15 sushi ships.

Fat Jimmy's C-Side BBQ is a fee-free venue that is bound to be popular with all onboard. The barbecue will offer grilled items like barbecued chicken breasts, kielbasa, Italian sausages and pulled pork sandwiches, along with traditional sides including baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw and mini-corn muffins. With pulled pork increasing popular in the UK — even Prèt are serving it — there is no doubt I'd be heading their for lunch!

Carnival Breeze is still having its final touches added at Italy's Fincantieri shipyard and will be the third Dream class ship in the fleet following on from the Carnival Dream — which launched in 2009 — and sister ship Carnival Magic, which arrived last year. Carnival Breeze will spend her inaugural season in the Med, sailing form Venice and Barcelona, before heading to Miami in November, where she will then offer year-round Caribbean cruises.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
