This review will mostly be positive, but to be completely honest, there were a few glitches. The beginning of the cruise was chaos. We had a transfer from LAX to the Port of Long Beach and we were told because of some issues we would not ... Read more

We have just returned from a repositioning cruise on the Miracle. We had great fun and met great people. The staff, especially dinner crew and room stewards were great. The dining room looked like disco meets bordello disaster! What was ... Read more

My husband and I and our 16 month old son went on this cruise in April 2013 and we don't have anything good to say about this cruise. Primarily because the travel agent we unfortunately came across, misrepresented a lot of things to us ... Read more

First time cruising with Carnival, we were very sceptical in the beginning especially because of the so many things happening to Carnival ships in the past few weeks. Embarkation in Long Beach was good but they can improve on it. ... Read more

We are experiencd cruisers, almost always on Carnival, so knew what to expect. In 2008 we were on the first cruise on Splendor so knew the ship well. On the plus side, our cabin was a SPA balcony, and this was our second time in that ... Read more

I had been planning this Cruise for a year and was looking forward to not only the 5 days in Hawaii, but the 8 days at sea, sitting back, sun bathing, and relaxing with a good book by a pool and refreshing water to take a dip in once in a ... Read more

I'd just recently sailed on the Carnival Splendor on 01/19/2013 for a 15-day cruise to Hawaii with my girlfriend, Sylvia. There were some positive things and there were some negative things about the cruise. So, I would like to start off ... Read more

Boarding at Vancouver was a breeze. As the length of the cruise was twelve nights additional supplies had to be taken on board that delayed departure but the time was easily made up. Five full days at sea to start the cruise was going ... Read more

Where should I start? First, I want to say this is MY review and ONLY my account will be in it. Nobody else had any input or review of it so if it is badly written it is all my fault. This cruise was memorable to say the least. I will ... Read more
