We chose this cruise for a few reasons: This is our 4th year traveling at Christmas, we wanted to go somewhere warm(er), the port is 2 hours from our home, and the ship was not overly large. This was definitely a good choice. We got an ... Read more

We started with Carnival and tried others. We loved being back on Carnival because there is so much more to do, especially trivia, which some of us love. The food was excellent in the Restaurant and some of us loved the burgers and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the date and port were the most convenient for us. My expectations were not high because the last Carnival Cruise we went on had gone way down with its quality of service. This was our 8th Carnival cruise. ... Read more

This was the 3rd Carnival Cruise for DH & I. Just us, no kids. This was the first cruise after Liberty’s transfer to Port Canaveral and the ship had just come out of 2 weeks in dry dock (we had originally booked on the Valor). ... Read more

The cruise left a bad taste in my mouth before we were even on the boat. The ship was switched from the Valor to the Liberty about a month or so before the cruise was set to sail. It changed our embarkation time from early afternoon to ... Read more

where should I start? The beginning sounds like a good place to start. My family and I selected the Carnival Valor ship and was to check in at 4:00pm. A week before the sail date, we were advised our ship has been changed to the Carnival ... Read more

We did this cruise as our first (probably of many) child free cruise. We had a glitch at the beginning because nobody could access our room. It took until 4:30 (we first tried at 1:30) to get everything resolved. The room Steward ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the price was very reasonable. We were a little leery after reading so many negative reviews, but our experience was a good one. We were late boarding and leaving port, because they are remodeling the rooms on ... Read more

Great cruise on the Valor with a few exceptions. I have been on more than a dozen cruises and I can say without a doubt, that even a bad cruise beats being at work, lol!! This was meant to be a relaxing get away during the crunch of the ... Read more

We did this cruise because it was a brief getaway. With Carnival, I love the value it is while I don't feel like much is sacrificed. I know that there are more expensive cruise lines and cruises, but for the every day person, this is ... Read more
