This is our third cruise with Carnival. I will say by far this was my favorite ship. We have sailed on the Carnival Dream and the Sunshine. The Sunshine was our least favorite. There were no seats to sit outside in the sun and it was ... Read more

This was our second cruise and first on Carnival. I was a little reluctant to book because of this ship being the oldest in the fleet. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the look and feel of this fantastic ship hence the name ... Read more

This ship is the worst ship i have been on in about 11 cruises. I booked 5 cabins for myself and family. This ship is older and the square feet of the balcony, and bath were much smaller than usual. I always book a junior suite, which was ... Read more

This cruise was a good cruise for a short cruise with only 2 port stops; Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman . This ships was good but perhaps because it is small, it did not offer the best fun experience. There was not enough service to keep the ... Read more

I like Carnival. Most of my cruises have been with them. I am Platinum member with Carnival and RCCL. Having said this, Carnival Splendor, was a huge disappointment. Decor: I liked it. You want to see ugly ships go on the Imagination or ... Read more

The boarding and debarkation was super smooth. The Carnival rep called me a few weeks prior to the cruise to upgrade at a super discount, so I got a Grand Suite for a steal and was it ever worth the few extra dollars. The staff were ... Read more

Overall Carnival offers a average cruise for an average price. The staff is overworked and under trained. it is very obvious that the cruise line cuts every corner to save money. The worst experience is walking past the casino to get to ... Read more

Me and the wife sailed on the Carnival Fantasy before and enjoyed it so we went back for our honeymoon using a balcony room. It is almost the EXACT same boat as the Fantasy. My biggest complaint is sometimes the staff were a slight bit ... Read more

We arrived at the terminal and had priority boarding due to the suite that we got. We also had "faster to the fun", which I still don't know what it does exactly. Getting on the ship and everything was easy and only took about ... Read more

This specific cruise schedule is by far the best we have been on. For a 7 day cruise, and the islands we visited, we got our money's worth! The Glory was as expected, a veteran seasoned ship, with its minor flaws, mostly visual. But it ... Read more

Like others I will agree the decor on many of the decks are dated. The carpet needs to be replaced especially around the elevators. Our balcony room was well decorated and so comfortable. It slept two adults and three children. Food ... Read more

We took this cruise mainly because it was going to the port of Bermuda. When we arrived to get on the ship, there was a lengthy delay. We were told the Splendor had gotten in later than expected. But everyone waited, very patiently, and ... Read more

This cruise was planned because of the port of Bermuda. However it should have been scheduled for a different day as Bermuda stores were closed the first day there. We toured the island and took a sunset sail that evening. It is a ... Read more
