I just returned from my 4th Carnival cruise. This was, however, my first time on the Sunshine. I was not impressed. The other ships I have sailed on were the Fascination, Elation, both in 2015, and several years back, the Celebration. To ... Read more

I picked this cruise because it sailed on my husband's birthday and was coming out of Cape Canaveral. Getting through the port was easy and we were signed in and on the ship in less than 1/2 hour. Deck #9 (Lido deck) was where the main ... Read more

Veteran Cruiser – Honest Review In summary: the Carnival Magic is a really nice ship. She is huge (130K tons) which is a departure from the older and smaller ships that normally take the 3 or 4 day Bahamas run from Port ... Read more

I chose this cruise to see the Magic and experience it. The ship is Beautiful. Embarkation was very smooth. Disembarkation was a nightmare. It took 2 hours priority for disembarkation. No organization. Cabin was good. Service level by ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a quick getaway with family. The ship was showing her age, considering some very outdated décor and rust. The signature whale fin funnel needed some serious cleaning. Embarkation was a little slow let to ... Read more

We (parents, 3 children ages 6, 9, and 11) have done several all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean in the past (and Disney World once a year too --just so you have our background experience), but I couldn't find an all inclusive that ... Read more

This was our 5th Cruise with Carnival - 2nd time on the Victory (1st time was 6 years ago) - just the 2 of us this time - no kids to worry about. We did Faster 2 the Fun, we have found this to be worth the $50 - you get priority boarding, ... Read more

We were looking for a fast escape from our hum-drum life (going stir crazy) and had friends already on this cruise so booked at the last minute. There were only a few balcony cabins available a week prior to sailing so I booked one and ... Read more

Picture if you will... my husband and I, first time cruisers, hear from our friends about a fantastic cruise they took with Carnival in February and how they can't wait to go back. We decide it would be a top notch idea to go on a cruise ... Read more

This ship is great for first time cruisers! It is a small ship but it is easy to navigate once you get the hang of it. We did the 5 day Bahamas cruise out of Charleston which sailed to Nassau and Freeport. We did the dolphin swim in ... Read more

Ship lacked basic amenities (i.e., no hairdryer or refrigerator in room, tiny TV), cabins were dirty and stained, passengers were loud and rude. Late one night, we had a passenger beat up his girlfriend right outside our cabin (including ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our first time because it was cheap and only 4 nights. Embarkation was smooth and our room was ready right away so we didn't have to carry our bag around for too long. The good thing about being on Riviera deck was ... Read more

From some of the reviews I read, I was very worried that the ship was going to be a huge disappointment. It was just the opposite. It only took about 30 minutes to board, and our stateroom was ready as soon as we got on the ship, at 1:30. ... Read more

I'll preface this by saying this was our first cruise. It was a belated 30th anniversary present from my husband. Living in Charleston, not needed to travel was a definite plus. With that being said, the embarkation was a challenge but ... Read more

My first cruise out of Jacksonville and they were very organized and embarkation was very easy and fast. The Fascination was strange after being used to the other ships, life boats blocked the view of the water from many places. ... Read more

I have cruised about 25 times, about half on Carnival and half Holland America. The Fascination is a nice size, and it's easy to navigate. I stayed in an inside cabin, which was clean and comfortable and had plenty of storage. It was ... Read more

This was only our second cruise so we don't have a lot of comparison, but we did note a few things. Embarkation was extremely easy and fast.....much better than our last experience in Baltimore. Once on the boat it was chaotic, which I ... Read more

We were a family of 5 - two adults, 2 kids (6 & 7), and a grandparent. We booked this specific cruise primarily because we loved Half Moon Cay so much the first time, and we had been on 3 previous Carnival cruises. We understand that ... Read more

To begin, my husband and I planned our cruise for our first anniversary and my birthday, which are just a day apart. We are far from being wealthy, but took along the $400 we had gotten together for travel expenses. After all, I had been ... Read more
