This was my first cruise with the Carnival Cruise line. I had cruised 3 times before on Royal Caribbean and I can tell you it was a major difference. We were there to celebrate a friends birthday and it was 10 of us. I understood prior ... Read more

We had never been on a cruise and thought this would be a fun family vacation. There were 2 adults and 2 kids- ages 13 & 7. No problems getting on to the ship. Cabins weren't quite ready but we boarded a little earlier too. We ... Read more

First and foremost, the cruise was overall very impressive and I would sail with Carnival again! The Carnival Valor just came out of dry dock earlier this year so the ship looked brand new. There were lights everywhere and the whole ship ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we are a family of four with 2 girls ages 7 and 14 and we thought this was a good value and good length for us and Port Canaveral was very close to family for us. I wasn't expecting to enjoy this sailing as ... Read more

We were cruising to celebrate a graduation. We were offered an upgrade to a stateroom with a bigger balcony and jacuzzi tub about a week prior to our departure. The upgrade cost almost 400 dollars and was NOT worth the price! The room ... Read more

This was a great itinerary - Five night Bahamas. Atlantis excursion was worth the money. Most beautiful water we saw for the entire cruise was at their beach. Nice water park with slides that all have a little something extra. The ... Read more

We had a great time on the Pride and traveled with 19 people; our stateroom (7301) was a great size; near the elevator but very quiet. It did look like there was work done in the bathroom (wall cut out and placed back) but it was not an ... Read more

The ship was clean, the staff was friendly and attentive. Our interior cabin was comfortable and well kept. The girls (12 and 16) enjoyed their respective clubs, which gave my husband and I time alone. We all loved dinning at the Fantasy ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the convenience of sailing out of Charleston (only a 2 hour drive from our home.) We had a wonderful cruise and would cruise again on the Ecstasy and from Charleston. We are a family of four with 2 early 20's adult ... Read more

A weekend cruise out of Miami is not exactly known as the best type of cruising, especially on an older ship like the Fantasy, but given the price and the fun/relaxation I had it was well worth it. The Fantasy shows its age, but at the ... Read more

The ship was nice and the service was excellent. Not good for seafood lovers. I went for the seafood but unfortunately I got none. The pools were smaller than kids wading pools. I an 70 yrs old and wanted to enjoy a cruise for the first ... Read more

We are a family with 5 adults now and needed something that wouldn't break the bank. We have been on cruises before when our children were small and many times as a couple. We were happy with the cruise and our children who are now 19, ... Read more

Can I leave a ZERO star? I've been on carnival before, and already was not too happy about returning on a family reunion cruise. But we went with the flow and didn't cause any issues with decisions that were made by other members. ... Read more

Just returned from a 3 day cruise to the Bahamas. This was my 5th cruise, all with Carnival. I cruised each year from 2005-2008. My travel plans and family circumstance took me to other places: local beaches, Mexico, Jamaica, etc. This ... Read more

We had an amazing time being pampered on the Carnival Ecstasy! Loved the Faster to the Fun option that allowed us to bypass the longer check-in lines and exit lines. Worth the $49 dollar per room charge to have access to this level of ... Read more

I chose this cruise because no airfare or hotel was needed. Price for my husband and I was great and leaving from Baltimore is very convenient. I liked staggered checkin mainly because as we went to the lido for lunch I noticed the ... Read more

After reading many bad and some good reviews of this ship (Elation), I was determined to be open minded going into this cruise. I chose this cruise/ship because it was a fairly close port for us to drive to and the dates fit our Summer ... Read more
