Just returned from a 4-night sailing on The Paradise. Wondered throughout the trip why so many do not like this ship. Embarkation was totally without any problems. Once on board the ship impressed time-and-again as to the cleanliness; ... Read more

My family and I have cruised on carnival before so I had some expectations about this particular cruise line. Embarkation was a breeze .. We paid extra for the faster to the fun (FTTF) and I thought it was worth the $49 per cabin. It ... Read more

I don't even know where to begin. First let me start by saying, typically we only cruise on royal caribbean (one of the most amazing cruise lines) but we decided to give carnival a shot. I can say 100% they blew there shot 110%. Very ... Read more

Just got off of our 8 night Carnival Breeze vacation yesterday on 11/15/2015. By far, this was the best cruise ever, out of my 5. This review will be very detailed, for all of those who enjoy details; however, it will not include any ... Read more

My 8 day exotic southern Caribbean itinerary on the Breeze was a dream cruise for me. This will have been my third cruise with Carnival, having had a similarly wonderful experience last November on the Magic out of Galveston. I'd done my ... Read more

This surely was a fun vacation! As everyone says, yeah it's a smaller, older ship but still VERY clean, well maintained and provides the quintessential Carnival experience! This was my second cruise and my friend's first. My first ... Read more

This is by far the best vacation that my boyfriend and I have EVER been on. The worst experience was the amount of botox it required to remove the wrinkles from laughing so much over the last week. The service is impeccable and I really ... Read more

Hubby and I have sailed on this same ship and itinerary twice. I said I wouldn't do it again, but the second time was an invite to vacation with family and friends. The reason we would not have repeated this trip is because we don't have ... Read more

First let me say I had set my expectations rather low because I have only sailed on Holland American and Disney Cruise Lines. I honestly thought that no cruise could ever match a DCL cruise. I was wrong! About us: Just married 44 and 49 ... Read more

Us: First time cruising, middle aged couple. Get ready to stand in a huge line for everything! I expected more luxury and relaxation. As others have mentioned, the ship needs an overhaul, it's outdated and smelly. The decks and pools were ... Read more
