I was a first time cruiser and decided on Carnival because it had good value. It's an older ship but for the most part didn't hinder me and my husband's experience. We had a great time. I also get motion sickness easily but surprisingly ... Read more

First let me say that I wanted to contact Carnival before writing this review because sometimes there are unknown circumstances that can affect any given situation. I wanted to give them the opportunity to rebut, but there is no way on ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise and my husband's 6th. By far, the Carnival Dream was our favorite ship! We had an interior state room and for the 2 of us it was perfect. There was plenty of closet space, the bathroom was the perfect layout and the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of price and it was close to home. We sailed on the Valor last year and liked the ship. We were very pleased with the upgrades. Enjoyed Guy's Burger Bar and the Blue Iguana Cantina. While we were unable ... Read more

This was a first cruise for my husband and myself. Had no idea what to expect, as we heard many less than positive reviews about Carnival cruises from friends. Yes, the port at Charleston is less than "up to date" but the ... Read more

First of all, the ship had an accident knocking out the ramp way to board the ship, so we had to enter through a small entrance at the front of the ship. They told everyone to return to the port after 1 pm because there was an incident on ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it left out of the port of Charleston and we could drive from home. Embarkation took about 2 1/2 hours because the terminal isn't really a modern terminal like Miami or Fort Lauderdale. It's basically a bunch ... Read more

I am not a huge fan of Carnival in general, and the 4-day cruise in particular is best suited to those looking for a loud party boat for a short getaway. But, I LOVE the Carnival Live concert setup, and was thrilled to see my favorite ... Read more

This was my first cruise so nothing else to compare it to, but it was an amazing trip! Pulling into the harbor at Nassau and seeing that beautiful blue water took my breath away. Went to Atlantis on Discover Tour of the aquariums and it ... Read more

Leaving from Jacksonville was smooth-parked at the Parking Mall across the highway. Cheaper than the other parking area. Embarkation was a little slow but moving. The ship was obviously decorated in the 90's, feels outdated a bit but I am ... Read more

We are a couple in our early 30s with a 4 year old. We arrived right at 1:30pm on the day of the cruise and it was a fairly simple process. If you drive, you pull up and drop off your suitcases (no need for everyone to get out of the ... Read more

This was the first sailing of the Elation out of Jacksonville and in spite of an earlier delay, the ship set sail around 7 PM. The Elation is an older ship in the Carnival line, and from appearances, is just about past its prime. I have ... Read more

We are a family of four, with two children under the age of 10. We sailed on spring break, and took the same itinerary and port last year, with the lone exception being the ship was the Carnival Fantasy, rather than the Ecstasy. This is ... Read more

The cruise fitted in with the timing of our holiday in USA and was during our time in Florida. Our OV cabin on deck 1 was clean and comfortable and close enough to the lifts for convenience but far enough away for noise reduction. The ... Read more
