This was my second Carnival cruise, but the first for my husband and kids. I was very discouraged after the switch from Valor to Liberty, and the bad Liberty reviews didn't help at all. Every week I would visit different sites hoping to ... Read more

This was my birthday cruise for turning 65. We had planned to do a European River Cruise this year but life got in the way and on the spur of the moment we decided to try something close by - Charleston, SC for a quick 5 day break to the ... Read more

I sailed on the 3/9/17 cruise to Nassau. It was a 3 day cruise that left from Port Canaveral. I am 25f and went with a group of 7 other women for my best friend's bachelorette party. Almost all of us have been on multiple Carnival ... Read more

This was my first cruise in the US. We paid 299 each for a balcony room. The room was huge compared to my cruise on Princess. There was a long bench built into the wall, and plenty of storage place. My one complaint about the room is that ... Read more

My wife and I are very experienced cruisers. This cruise was our 5th to the Bahamas, but we had never cruised out of Jacksonville before so we thought we'd give Elation (only ship out of Jacksonville) a try. Actually, Jacksonville is a ... Read more

This was the very first cruise for both my 17 year old son and I. He has moderate autism spectrum disorder and global developmental delays, so I was very anxious about our trip. We chose the 5 day cruise out of Galveston for our first one ... Read more

Good value for the money. We got an email the day before the cruise that ship would be boarding and departing late due to loading of materials. Boarding wouldn't begin until 1:30pm and departure wasn't until 6pm. We were also notified ... Read more

This was a 3 night Carnival Live cruise with a Tim McGraw concert. I wasn't sure if I would be disappointed in such a short cruise and it not being on a Dream class ship, but it turned out to be close to perfect. This is the first ... Read more

We took this cruise because of the Tim McGraw concert series. There's nothing really fancy about the ship itself. Our cabin was an inside cabin which is pretty much like any other ship in their fleet. The pool area was nicer than others ... Read more

The boat really does not have that many fun things to do, pretty much only the casino. The pools are small, the food in the dining room was AWFUL, we ate there the first night and it took a total of 2 hours. It took forever to get anything ... Read more

Me and my boyfriend (at the time) wanted to take a vacation that didn't cost us a fortune and would allow us to travel somewhere we had never been before. Of course our first thought was CRUISE! We looked into several different cruise ... Read more

I have sailed Carnival in the pas (Valor, Conquest, Freedom), but have graduated to a more premium line now that I do not cruise with small children. But, when the Carnival Live announcement came out and I saw Tim McGraw was going to do a ... Read more

We like cruising out of Charleston because it's only a 31/2 hr away from Charlotte, NC. Parking at the port was quick, and both embarkation and debarkation the same. The ship was well run and clean. Our cabin (M211) was well maintained ... Read more

This cruise is for people who are more concerned with value than luxury. This ship is older and needs to be updated. The crew was very nice and courteous and the people on the ship were very friendly. unfortunately, the food wasn't very ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my boyfriend and I wanted to get away for his birthday. He does not yet have a passport, so it was the perfect opportunity to travel out of the country and he not need one. This was his 1st cruise, but my 3rd, ... Read more

I always have cruised with Carnival and I have been on this ship 3 times now. I hardly write reviews but we felt like this is worth one. We sailed last year on a 5 night cruise and it was different this time. First off the music that was ... Read more

I was given this cruise as a gift. I enjoyed every last second of my trip! I would definitely go again however, I traveled with 1 16 year old and would take another teen with him next time to give him some company. There wasn't much on ... Read more

This was the worst and the best of cruising on Carnival. First, PLEASE believe me that I always go into every situation hoping for the best but...somehow, some way or someone turns my attitude sour. From the beginning when I got that ... Read more

We (my wife and I) took a short cruise on the Carnival Liberty to the Bahamas, which was fairly relaxing. Outwardly, the cruise was like most of the others we have taken, but apparently, Carnival has enthusiastically joined the world of ... Read more

My family and I sailed on the Carnival Liberty out of Port Canaveral and returned this morning so I thought I'd write a review before the details become too fuzzy-wuzzy and, yes, he was a bald bear. Anyway, we started out arriving at ... Read more

In September 2016, we did this very same cruise and enjoyed it greatly and thought we would try it again because we wanted to enjoy some warm weather at the end of winter. Having booked this , we asked for the very same cabin we had before ... Read more

Ship is old and in my opinion should be retired... Cabin was outdated, tiles in shower are falling off the walls and very poor air conditioning. TV might as well have been an old 1970 floor model with very few channels. Reported A/C ... Read more
