We chose this cruise because our friends were looking at something relatively affordable and not bad of a drive. The ship is older and smaller, but some public areas are nice, especially the promenade, atrium, spa, buffet, and dinning ... Read more

We chose this trip due to being close to Charleston and having been on the Ecstasy in October, 2016. It was also a celebration of our tenth anniversary. When we arrived in Charleston, the line to park cars was non-existent. It went ... Read more

My wife and I have been on 5 previous cruises. 4 of them were Disney and one on NCL. We wanted to see how Carnival was as the port is only 15 minutes from the house. Makes it very convenient for us. Unfortunately we did not have a ... Read more

Embarking and disembarking at Port Canaveral went very simple and smoothly especially with the Faster to the Fun (FTTF) which was worth every penny. The ship being as old as it is was still in excellent condition and was beautifully ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was short and could drive to Pt. Canaveral. It was also a good value for the time and we got a nicer balcony. We didn't do much more than relax and eat. Unfortunately the food wasn't very good. Guy's ... Read more

Don't get me wrong, we had fun, but we had to be flexible and patient and drink a lot of Maria's martini's to do so. We have cruised multiple times before on multiple cruiselines, including Carnival and so we read all the reviews ahead of ... Read more

I had already prepared myself to be disappointed! But to my surprise I had a great time. Yes the rooms are "worn" but still functional! The rooms on my deck, Main, had already been renovated in the front of the ship from 101 to ... Read more

This was our first time on a cruise. We researched it for a LONG time before choosing. We had a budget and with it being our first time we didn't want to be gone too long. I am prone to motion sickness (pretty bad) and was not sure that ... Read more

This was our first cruise, and most likely our last with Carnival. The food was mostly disappointing, but there were a few exceptions that were quite good, like the melting chocolate cake in the main dining room, and the burgers at Guy's ... Read more

We live in Charleston, SC, so we picked the Ecstasy for the pure convenience of not having to travel to the departure port. We have previously cruised on Princess and Royal Caribbean, so I admit I was a little nervous about trying ... Read more

We "were" going to take a break from cruising in 2017 but . . . I caved to my wife's request to cruise if she could find something for under $100 a day. We never caught a ship out of Charleston before, so we "booked ... Read more

I was a little nervous about this ship at first simply because of all of the negative reviews I've read. (Only 58 percent reviewers loved this cruise!!! Really?) My thirteen year old daughter had an optimistic attitude while I was in a ... Read more

We chose Carnival because we had a great experience on the past 4 cruises with them. This time was far from great. I was so happy to get off the ship and back home. I took my daughter, who is 10, so we could have a mother-daughter get ... Read more

The reason for this cruise was to scatter my husband's ashes. He and I were avid cruisers and his wish was to be scattered at sea so he could be "fish food". Our favorite cruise lines were Celebrity and Holland America, but ... Read more

This was our second Carnival cruise, and we were very pleased, despite the negative reviews. The ship was clean and very pretty, not gaudy like the Sensation was. Our inside cabin was clean and comfortable, as was every other part of the ... Read more

Had a great Easter trip on this cruise. We traveled by taxi from Jacksonville airport to Jax port for $35. It was very easy transportation . As suite guests the express embarkation was a breeze. As always, the sail away party was ... Read more

The staff and crew of The Pride is just plain outstanding. Wonderful. I don't have a single complaint. After a few days you feel like old friends. The decor is a bit weird, on board entertainment is just so-so (not for lack of effort or ... Read more

Background. We set sail on the Carnival Liberty while our four elementary school aged kids were out on Spring Break. We planned the trip in advance and took advantage of the Early Saver rate, so three of us per inside cabin amounted to ... Read more
