The Valor is a mixed bag for me, but the good outweighs the bad. The ship is difficult to navigate and (to me) has poor signage, so I often found myself frustrated and in the wrong place. Chalk some of that up to the fact that it was our ... Read more

This was our 14th cruise 12 on Carnival. My wife and I have been to the Bahama's many times before. However we thoroughly enjoyed the destination again. We saw many new places and some of the old from a different perspective. We made ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the proximity to our home. We didn't have to fly and could drive to the port. Embarkation went smooth. We had priority since we had a suite so we were one of the first group on. Room was ready with our ... Read more

We had an overall good time on the Elation. This was me and my wife’s first cruise. It started out rough because Carnival misplaced my extremely large suitcase in someone else’s on the first day. We arrived on the ship at ... Read more

Loved it! We went on this as a family cruise of 15 people and not one complaint. My kids loved our room with the balcony. So nice to sit and watch the sun rise and set over the ocean. The staff was awesome, we never had to ask twice for ... Read more

This 4 day cruise was our 5th with Carnival and 40th overall. We selected it to celebrate our 54th anniversary. Being experienced cruisers, we expect some problems and weren't disappointed. Getting onboard was no problem, about 1/2 hr ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we haven't been on a cruise in two years and were eager to return. We have used multiple cruise lines before and we know Carnival has the reputation for being the, "Mass Market Buffet" of cruising. ... Read more

We've now been on 4 cruises. The way we have originally chosen cruises was price, destination, and where it's leaving out of. Now, we are at a point where we would probably start choosing the cruise based on the boat. Went out of ... Read more

This was a family cruise of sixteen people. Our cabin was roomy, clean, cool and big enough for eight grandchildren to use as a focal point. The food was acceptable but below our previous experienced cruise. Our first carnival cruise was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was convenient and sailed out of Charleston. It only took about an hour to board and start our vacation. That was probably the smoothest embarkation we've ever had. The first thing that struck me was the ... Read more

The embarkation was full of carnival employees that seemed bothered by their job. No smiles and all seemed irritated to be working there. This seemed to be the mood of most on the ship as well. The food was sub par to the royal Caribbean ... Read more
