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

This was the first cruise ever for my family! We were so excited and raring to go that we could hardly contain ourselves in the days leading up to the time of departure. The ship, although a little worn, was very lovely. My cabin was ... Read more

Very enjoyable cruise with friends. Third cruise on Carnival for me and 5th cruise over all. The ship itself was very nice. There were too many people at the Lido buffet for breakfast so ate in the dining room for breakfast and that was ... Read more

I chose this cruise because more than any other location I wanted to go to Half Moon Cay. This was my 3rd cruise and all have been with Carnival. Jacksonville is an 8 hour drive from where I live. I liked the idea of it taking a full night ... Read more

My fiancée and I booked this quick trip from Miami to Nassau to get away from the cold Minnesota weather in December. We cruised last New Years on the Carnival Ecstasy (I believe the oldest and smallest Carnival ships) so my ... 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

This was our first cruise, we are a couple in our mid 40's. We choose this cruise based on the date, departure port, and the cost. We had a great time! Our cabin and bathroom were plenty roomy. It was kept neat and clean by Eugene. The ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was affordable and it fit my week of scheduled vacation. Almost everything was as I expected it to be based on my last cruise. This ship had the exact same lay out as the last cruise so it was very easy to ... Read more

I love the Pride. This was my 5th cruise. However I noticed that some of the perks are no more. Examples are not all cabins get the robes (you can have them upon request) but not every room has them any longer. The complimentary ... Read more

Birthday cruise with sisters, First time I had mobility issues after 14 cruises. Staff and most of the passengers couldn't have been more helpful with my scooter anxiety. First time in a long time we stayed on Rivera Deck, my sister ... Read more

Having taken almost 30 cruises and none on Carnival, we decided to try Carnival to see if some of the negative comments we heard were true. We were pleasantly surprised, but not awed. Food was better than expected and we did not see a ... Read more

I did not make the plans for this cruise. I went with 3 girlfriends and one of them made all of the arrangements. I have cruised 3 times and this was my first on Carnival. We flew into Orlando and took the shuttle to the port. It went ... Read more

Pride is a nice size ship. The cruise is convenient from NYC and Baltimore and saves a flight from this area. Captain and crew are very friendly. Steve the cruise director runs a tight ship. I am platinium, so this makes a difference on ... Read more

Cabin nice, smaller than other ships, but location close to Spa was perfect for us. Quiet at night. Dinner quality was inconsistant with some downright poor food. Disappointed that there was no menu of what would be served at the Chef ... Read more

While I always felt like Carnival was a good value for your money in the past. I cannot give this recommendation anymore. This cruise will probably be my last on carnival. I'll start off with the positive: 1. Generally, nice staff ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose this cruise because my husband didn't want to fly. I had a good time but I would not choose a ship this small again. We are not drinkers and most of the activities centered around alcohol. The pool is ... Read more

Ninth carnival cruise, twenty fifth over all. If this is your first, have fun. If otherwise, prepare to be horrified. Menu was nursing home quality, pay up for steak or lobster, and slow. By fourth nite diningroom was half empty. Cabin ... Read more

This ship is overpriced and old. There were only families on this cruise. Being a single 30 year old female, I would like activities geared towards someone like myself instead of just families. Our room was not even serviced for the ... Read more
