Preface: I cruise because I like to enjoy the amenities on the boat. When everyone disembarks to drink their faces off at Senor Frogs, I like having quiet shaded loungers to myself. I'm a firm believer that a cruise is what you choose to ... Read more

The entertainment and food aboard the ship were all first class. However, we had chosen this particular cruise because they advertised Texas Hold Em in the casino. Texas Hold Em was even listed on the daily shipboard activities schedule. ... Read more

This cruise had some ports we never visited before and it was a good fit for our budget, 6 people over $10,000. The embarkation took a long time. As the cruise unfolded, we found a common theme of disorganization. The following areas ... Read more

This was our 5th Carnival Cruise and although it had been five years since our last cruise, the cuts in service were definitely noticeable. We had chosen "Anytime" dining and were disappointed to see that after waiting 45 ... Read more

Traveled with a group of 40 college friends. We had a great time but that had more to do with our being together then any activities on the ship. It rained much of the time so outdoor activities were somewhat limited. The entertainment was ... Read more

We had not been on a Carnival Cruise for a few years since we noticed a definite drop in the level of service. We decided to give them another try, simply because the price was right and the cruise went to places we had not been. That ... Read more

Embarkation: We flew into Ft. Lauderdale the morning of the cruise and took a taxi directly to the Port. Do not pay for cruise line sponsored transportation in Ft. Lauderdale. The port is very close to the airport and it is much cheaper to ... Read more
