The Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage on the Carnival Breeze is worthy of its name, FANTASTIC! There was so much entertainment, seminars, and other activities - You have to pace yourself in order to take in most of what is offered. The party ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze, disembarkation was a breeze. Did not have FTTF, and it still was very organized, and we did not wait long at all to embark or disembark. We choose to have the cruise line take our luggage the night before, so we ... Read more

For this ship to be one of the newer ships, it is lacking in a lot of areas. First, there is only one- very small pool for the entire ship that holds 4400 people! This very small pool was 90% full of screaming kids. I would think a ship ... Read more

Really... I do not know where to begin. I really don't. Let me preface by saying that when I booked this cruise with the Carnival Sensation, I knew going in that this was a 30+ year-old ship. I've seen photos of the ship in detail and ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise on Carnival but it has been a few years since my last. Everything was as awesome as I recalled except some of the changes in the VIFP perks. Some of the cost cutting measures seemed overly cheap like not ... Read more

Ship lacked basic amenities (i.e., no hairdryer or refrigerator in room, tiny TV), cabins were dirty and stained, passengers were loud and rude. Late one night, we had a passenger beat up his girlfriend right outside our cabin (including ... Read more

We took this particular cruise (this was our 3rd) because it was a late-breaking decision and was one of two that fit in our window of opportunity. We enjoyed the cruise although a change in course to deal with medical emergency ... Read more

This ship has hits and misses. They shows were great. The staff the first night was lacking. But the next day things went from poor to perfect! I don't know if everyone had a rough day the first night or what. Robert, our head waiter, was ... Read more
