I chose this cruise based on price and destination. I am not a big fan of Carnival because the boats are smashed full of people. However, I will say that Carnival keeps people returning based on price and delicious food. That is why I ... Read more

We have cruised Carnival 3 times and this was our second time on Pride. I was looking forward to booking on board for next summer. Our first time on Pride was so good, I knew even if it did the same old Bahama run, we could do this ship ... Read more

We are used to sailing Sensation, Fascination and Fantasy so familiar with the class. We had a good idea of what to expect on the E. On board ship, most everything we liked. Service, room steward, bar service was all great. The ... Read more

We chose to set sail out of Charleston SC. Mainly because we have never been there and it was a shorter drive. No problem with getting on or off the ship. Everything went smooth with that. The Cabin was small as to be expected. Pillows ... Read more

I am a 3rd-timer with Carnival. Last trip was a while back, but my husband and I had the privilege of cruising on the Freedom in 2009, just 2 years after it's inaugural sail in 2007. Negative: The Conquest (built in 2002 or 2003) by stark ... Read more

Chose this cruise for a quick relaxing get away before the upcoming holidays. Sailed Fasination twice before out of Jax and this ship is not much different. First FTTF was a good investment for us. Embarcation was a breeze. Went right to ... Read more

Sudana, our stateroom steward, was great! Our room was kept very clean, and he always greeted us with a smile and by our first and last names. We never had a chance to mess up the cabin because he was always right behind us cleaning and ... Read more

To sum up my review of this cruise in only 150 words is merely impossible. My experience with Carnival Victory ruined my cruise experience and has left me highly disappointed in the experience I thought I would get. To sum my trip, here's ... Read more

I went on this cruise as an office retreat. Let's just say if this was the first cruise I'd ever gone on I'd never cruise again! Disembarking was not good we were supposed to board at 12:30 we didn't get on the boat until after 1:30. The ... Read more

I will start by saying that I am a seasoned cruiser. And I have to agree with others that the Sensation is an old and tired ship. We Thought the crew was fantastic. And we also thought the food was very good. But the ship itself is not a ... Read more
