My wife and I went on this cruise out of Charleston with another couple. This was my 5th time cruising with carnival, (all in the last 5 years) and my 2nd time out of Charleston. My very first cruise was out of Charleston in 2011 on the ... 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

We chose this cruise for our grandson's 6th birthday; we got a really good price and have sailed Carnival 4 times before. We were interested to explore the larger Carnival Dream. It really is a large ship but the layout makes it seem ... Read more

The "Freedom" was an amazing ship. This was my 4th cruise and we have the best time so far. We stayed in room 2473 which is a back corner room with two windows. The extra floor space in the room was awesome. There was some ... Read more

We had a fantastic time. Total in our group were 4 in two rooms. The rooms were well appointed. Only suggestion is to have a handle for stepping in and out of the bathroom, and an electrical outlet for our toothbrush. Absolutely loved ... Read more

After reading some negative reviews of Carnival, I wasn't sure what to expect. I would have to nit pick to find fault with them. The service was great. The food was excellent. There were times that I observed guests asking for things out ... Read more

We had never been on a cruise and thought this would be a fun family vacation. There were 2 adults and 2 kids- ages 13 & 7. No problems getting on to the ship. Cabins weren't quite ready but we boarded a little earlier too. We ... Read more

First and foremost, the cruise was overall very impressive and I would sail with Carnival again! The Carnival Valor just came out of dry dock earlier this year so the ship looked brand new. There were lights everywhere and the whole ship ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we are a family of four with 2 girls ages 7 and 14 and we thought this was a good value and good length for us and Port Canaveral was very close to family for us. I wasn't expecting to enjoy this sailing as ... Read more

We were cruising to celebrate a graduation. We were offered an upgrade to a stateroom with a bigger balcony and jacuzzi tub about a week prior to our departure. The upgrade cost almost 400 dollars and was NOT worth the price! The room ... Read more

This was a great itinerary - Five night Bahamas. Atlantis excursion was worth the money. Most beautiful water we saw for the entire cruise was at their beach. Nice water park with slides that all have a little something extra. The ... Read more

We had a great time on the Pride and traveled with 19 people; our stateroom (7301) was a great size; near the elevator but very quiet. It did look like there was work done in the bathroom (wall cut out and placed back) but it was not an ... Read more

The ship was clean, the staff was friendly and attentive. Our interior cabin was comfortable and well kept. The girls (12 and 16) enjoyed their respective clubs, which gave my husband and I time alone. We all loved dinning at the Fantasy ... Read more

A weekend cruise out of Miami is not exactly known as the best type of cruising, especially on an older ship like the Fantasy, but given the price and the fun/relaxation I had it was well worth it. The Fantasy shows its age, but at the ... Read more

Can I leave a ZERO star? I've been on carnival before, and already was not too happy about returning on a family reunion cruise. But we went with the flow and didn't cause any issues with decisions that were made by other members. ... Read more
