Yeah, that's a joke. This was not a terrible cruise, but to explain the title, know that those saying Carnival is going downhill (like most everything) are right. Mostly first-world complaints: Poorer food quality. Fewer options on the ... Read more

The Dream is a large ship and very much understaffed. From the check in process, to the room steward, the dining room staff, bar staff, it was about the worst service I have ever received on a cruise ship. Carnival now asks that you ... 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
