First let me clairfye that this is my 9th cruise, and after being on may 7 day cruises this one obviously wasn't one of the "best" cruises but it was in fact very fun for the short time we were on the ship. Since we are from ... Read more

Embarkation was somewhat slow. After we parked our car and shuttled to the port it took almost two hours from the time we arrived (about 1230) till we boarded. The local roads surrounding the port seem inadequate for the amount of traffic ... Read more

We are first time cruisers so we picked the cruise to nowhere as a trial run to see if we would be interested in doing it again. Embarkation: We were told that we could board the ship at around 11am so we wanted to be early so we ... Read more

Booked this little two-day cruise-to-nowhere as a get away from the hustle 'n' bustle and it was just what the doctor ordered. It was me and another female friend getting away for the weekend. Our second 2-day cruise (first was a Carnival ... Read more

We came down to the piers for our ninth Carnival cruise on this new ship. We were doing a B2B so we had luggage. I found someone to assist me with our luggage on the elevator and he found a porter for me. I gave him my checked luggage. We ... Read more

This was my 11th cruise on 5 various cruise lines. Have done Carnival twice before. Love the value, the exterior lines of the ships, but not the interiors so much. Have also done 3 CTNs over the years with NCL. Traveling with me were ... Read more

Upon arrival at the NYC terminal, we got through security and check-in quickly, then there was a long line to get onto the ship. Maybe 40 minutes from the time we got to the port to being onboard which isn't bad at all. It was a bit ... Read more

This was the third Carnival Miracle cruise to nowhere that we have been on out of NYC. We choose to do this cruise every year for numerous reasons but mostly to get away and have a great time. Carnival embarkation has improved 1000% as I ... Read more

Let me start out by saying that we have cruised several times before, and even cruised on this ship once before, and overall, this is a pretty fun cruise with great value attached. Due to the Swine Flu scare in Mexico, we fell victim ... Read more

Well, first off, it was only two days - but it seemed longer, as I wasted very little time sleeping. The Carnival Splendor is an absolutely beautiful ship. Much of the commentary has been about the "Pinkness" - personally, ... Read more

This ship was 2 days late returning to port because of hurricane Gustav. As a result, at least 50% of the folks cancelled their cruise and an e-mail with a $99 last minute cruise to nowhere caught DH's eye. He called and booked right away. ... Read more

I know that is an odd statement to make when it cost us 2 days of our cruise. But we have been to Cozumel 100 times and we were not even going to get off the ship in Progresso...so we did not miss a thing!! Embarkation was very easy ... Read more

Took advantage of a hurricane special. A half cruise to nowhere for 3 nights on the Ecstasy. We paid 99 dollars plus the normal taxes and fuel surcharge. The price was certainly right but the fuel surcharge should have been reduced. ... Read more

Let me say that I have never had a "bad" cruise....but this one was sub par in almost every area. Carnival cut 2 days off our itinerary due to Hurricane Gustav. Let us know less than 24 hours prior to sailing....kinda short notice. ... Read more
