We chose this trip due to being close to Charleston and having been on the Ecstasy in October, 2016. It was also a celebration of our tenth anniversary. When we arrived in Charleston, the line to park cars was non-existent. It went ... Read more

Don't get me wrong, we had fun, but we had to be flexible and patient and drink a lot of Maria's martini's to do so. We have cruised multiple times before on multiple cruiselines, including Carnival and so we read all the reviews ahead of ... Read more

We live in Charleston, SC, so we picked the Ecstasy for the pure convenience of not having to travel to the departure port. We have previously cruised on Princess and Royal Caribbean, so I admit I was a little nervous about trying ... Read more

We "were" going to take a break from cruising in 2017 but . . . I caved to my wife's request to cruise if she could find something for under $100 a day. We never caught a ship out of Charleston before, so we "booked ... Read more

We chose Carnival because we had a great experience on the past 4 cruises with them. This time was far from great. I was so happy to get off the ship and back home. I took my daughter, who is 10, so we could have a mother-daughter get ... Read more

This was our second Carnival cruise, and we were very pleased, despite the negative reviews. The ship was clean and very pretty, not gaudy like the Sensation was. Our inside cabin was clean and comfortable, as was every other part of the ... Read more

Let me preface my review by sharing, that I’ve cruised a couple of times. This was a first for my SO and 2 children ages 15 & 9. I read many reviews prior to this trip, and read many negative reviews; but with that in mind I ... Read more

We boarded in 30 minutes flat from shuttle to the port in Charleston to the ship. We had picked an early boarding time (11:30 a.m.) so this may have helped. We took a shuttle from our hotel with free parking for our car during the ... Read more

We picked this cruise because we were taking our 13yo grand-daughter. It was her spring break and her first cruise. We are an 8 hour drive from Charleston (closest port to us). Disclaimer: my wife and I are not the beach people, but ... Read more

We like cruising out of Charleston because it's only a 31/2 hr away from Charlotte, NC. Parking at the port was quick, and both embarkation and debarkation the same. The ship was well run and clean. Our cabin (M211) was well maintained ... Read more

This cruise is for people who are more concerned with value than luxury. This ship is older and needs to be updated. The crew was very nice and courteous and the people on the ship were very friendly. unfortunately, the food wasn't very ... Read more
