I chose this cruise because it lined up with spring break and was a decent price when we got it. There are 4 of us, 2 18's and 22, 25. We drove to the port and didn't book any excursions because they sold out. Good think we didn't though ... Read more

We chose this cruise out of Port Canaveral because we wanted to go to Orlando for a few days also, and this 4-day itinerary worked out great. This was the 14th cruise for my wife and I, and the 10th for our kids. We had never sailed out of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was leaving from Baltimore and the cost for us to fly to Baltimore was very reasonable. We also had never been to Baltimore and took a couple of days to visit. We choose Carnival because we like the ... Read more

Family vacation, had adjoining rooms with family, our cabin steward was inattentive, did not even know his name throughout the whole cruise. Turn down service only happened once and with a two year old, this was necessary. Dinners turned ... Read more

This was my first cruise in the US. We paid 299 each for a balcony room. The room was huge compared to my cruise on Princess. There was a long bench built into the wall, and plenty of storage place. My one complaint about the room is that ... Read more
