A group of friends have done this cruise every year for the last few years and we decided to join them this time. They selected the Carnival Imagination because that had the right dates that were being sought. Have to tell you it was the ... Read more

Just came back from the Mexican Riviera cruise on the Carnival Miracle. This was my first time on a Spirit class ship and I'll have to say it's now my favorite. This was a New Year's cruise leaving on December 31st. Embarkation was ... Read more

We have gone from balcony to junior suite to ocean suite. This was probably the quietest cabin we've had- except for the young elephants running down the halls, and a kid next door who loved to sing loudly on the balcony. Our steward Asih ... Read more

The ship is older than others i've traveled on, but it was clean. The cabin stewards are friendly and efficient. The entertainment was mixed- good shows;however the comedians weren't great. The band was excellent, but the solo performers ... Read more

This was the absolute worst vacation of my life. I have taken several cruises in the past and this was by far the worst ever. Room was filthy - had to call housekeeping 3 times to get it clean and point to the filth and ask for it to be ... Read more

First timer looking for a quick cruise experience. This is a nice short one. Ship was full for the Holidays with lots of families. The staff was professional and made the cruise run smoothly. It was just not the right time of year. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it sailed over Christmas. We wanted to take a Christmas vacation this year instead of spending it at home, and Carnival Inspiration filled the bill. We live in Las Vegas so a Long Beach, CA departure was as ... Read more

I chose Carnival for the price, finally receiving a special that allegedly included all the port, taxes, and any "air filter disposal fee" kind of bs nickel-and-dime hidden costs. For the most part, that was correct. THE ... Read more

I had a great cruise on the Carnival Miracle! We arrived at Long Beach around Noon to board the ship. We had Faster to the Fun, so we were able to skip most of the line boarding the ship. Be warned, if you do not have priority boarding and ... Read more

We picked this cruise because my son wanted to try Carnival. He's 14. In the end even he preferred NCL. Our room had stained carpet and upholstery, the door to the frig was broken, many dings and broken elements to the suite. We had a ... Read more

This was our family's first cruise. I read the reviews and didn't really expect much based on the ship we were sailing on. Carnival likes to charge for every little extra that they can. They charge extra for sodas and any alcoholic ... Read more

We wanted a mother and daughter getaway and the hot tub she had bought me came either with a 2 night trip to Vegas or 4 night cruise on Carnival. So naturally we chose the Carnival cruise as we had cruised Carnival before. We had an ... Read more

I have 17 cruises under my belt, three of them with Carnival. I haven't sailed Carnival since 1996 on the Jubilee. The 1996 cruise was a comparison to the Tropical that I did in 1987, the loss of quality was noticeable but not extreme. The ... Read more
