This was a family cruise during April vacation. We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary--Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Curacao and Aruba - because we wanted to go to places we hadn't been to before. Embarkation was ... Read more

Ship Pros: Having been on an older, non-refurbished Carnival ship (Victory, in 2011), I was happy to see that the Breeze had a new, less tacky design. Different areas of the ship had fun and appropriate theming, such as the Piano Bar, ... Read more

Embarkation was perfect...no line no waiting. Only issue was the guys taking your bags in the very beginning begging for additional tip money after tipping them. Keep in mind this was my very first cruise ever! So i was excited and ready ... Read more

This was my 4th cruise with Carnival and we have always had a great vacation. I am not impressed with this ship, bigger is not always better. I was unaware when I booked this cruise that it was spring break and there was going to be 1000 ... Read more

This ship was perfect and way better decor than any other Carnival ship. It's a BIG ship, but I love it. It's a nice way to burn that cruise weight. If you didn't like Carnival because of the ship design, try the Breeze. Embarkation ... Read more

We chose the Carnival Sensation because the dates worked with our work schedule and the fact that the ship was going to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and it also included Nassau as a port of call. From the minute we set foot on the ship we ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise on the Carnival Line. We select Carnival mainly for the price and what we hear of other cruise lines. This was our first sail on the Splendor. I was a little leary of taking her as I'd read several reviews on her. I ... Read more

My overall impression of this cruise is that it is ok if you are a spring breaker. That is, if you will be too drunk to notice all that is iffy about this ship. My husband and I decided to take my parents on a short cruise to celebrate ... Read more
