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

I'm so glad I said yes to upgrade offer when Carnival called week or so before cruise and offered a balcony upgrade. Well worth the $500 for priority status. Had room V22. Quiet and great views. Note. You have divide between you and ... 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

I was impressed with just about everything. The food and the service were top notch. I was called by name from day 1. Assigned seating dining was outstanding. Open seating dining was just okay. The buffets were great with lots of variety ... Read more

We took the "7 Day Exotic Southern Caribbean" Cruise from San Juan, Puerto Rico visiting 5 ports, Sunday to Sunday. We had cabin 7326, which I choose because it was relatively close to the stair/lift well, but one removed so that we ... 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

This was my first cruise since the '70s, so I really did not know what to expect. We were exhausted the first night between flying into Fort Lauderdale, a somewhat tiring boarding process, and our luggage not to our rooms until about 6:00 ... Read more

I normally cruise for at least a week and have sailed Carnival only once before. This was 6 years ago on a different ship. First the positives: the length and convenience of the cruise (I live 2 hours from port) turned out to be perfect ... Read more

CUSTOMER SERVICE: Upon debarkation, our luggage was handled very poorly. We had bought a $50 bottle of tequila from Puerto Vallarta and had it bubble wrapped and taped and was put in our luggage. We wanted to debark by taking our own ... Read more
