Cruising aboard the Carnival Sunshine was truly AMAZING!! Of course no experience is perfect . Dining at the Sunset was a bit frustrating at times because the food would be cold, sometimes the meat would be over cooked as well. When we ... Read more

I Suggest You Find Another Ship or company that sails to these ports! This ship is old and very broken down! After finally getting the time away to take a cruise. I was so excited. I had been wanting to do one for some time. Then, I ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise on Carnival after loving my experience on the Dream class ships and this experience did not disappoint! I am a spa cabin aficianado, so I booked a spa balcony on the starboard side on deck 14. It was great. There ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Legend and it has been redecorated. We liked the decor! Embarkation was fine except my daughter left her passport in her suitcase. So we were put into the "trouble children" pen. (LOL) It was a ... Read more

This was a different experience and a new boat for us. I certainly learned the hard way about using gift cards to fund my sign and sail pass. Bare with me through the rant. I was short on cash this trip-and unlike the previous sailing ... Read more

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

It has been 30 years since I last sailed Carnival but I wouldn't leave it that long again. We really enjoyed ourselves. There were all ages on this ship. Young and old. We had a balcony cabin. Room was good and the bed comfy. Shower was ... 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

I like to give detailed reviews on my cruises because the more detailed it is the more helpful I think it would be for other cruisers: We went to the C. Ecstasy from Oct. 30th - Nov. 2nd/2015. FOOD: The food on the main dinning room, ... 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

We had a really wonderful vacation! Wanted to say that from the start. My partner and I always have fun on a Carnival ship. Boarding the ship was a breeze, taking us about 20 min to get on ship. I'm glad they weren't selling the faster to ... Read more

I was skeptical to take another cruise out of Galveston with Carnival. My last cruise on the Ecstasy was five nights with stops in Progreso and Cozumel in June of 2008. On that cruise, I had an obstructed ocean view and felt like a ... Read more
