This was mine and DH's first cruise, and we couldn't have had a nicer time. The only reason for the 4 out of 5 was due to the food, which I'll get to in a minute. We embarked out of Baltimore, because we live in the state, about an hour ... Read more

The buffet was very crowded when the dinig room wasn't open. There was not enough seating. I think if they added Guy's Burgers and Blue Iguana grills! This would relieve the buffet crowd. We enjoyed these venues on the Carnival Breeze ... Read more

We had an overall good time on the Elation. This was me and my wife’s first cruise. It started out rough because Carnival misplaced my extremely large suitcase in someone else’s on the first day. We arrived on the ship at ... Read more

I will keep this short and sweet. The Carnival vista is an excellent ship which has been designed very well with something for everyone. Embarkation was fast, smooth and efficient. The cabin was large and kept spotlessly clean. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the great value that we get from CCL. We are VIFP and enjoy the expeditious embark/disembark procedures. We were on this ship several years ago when it was fairly new. The 2.0 upgrade that it has ... Read more

We had a nice time on this cruise. The ship, although smaller than the Magic and some of the other larger ones used for 7 day cruises, was very nice and clean. The nighttime shows were good, but the male lead singer left a lot to be ... Read more

The ship was clean, the staff was friendly and attentive. Our interior cabin was comfortable and well kept. The girls (12 and 16) enjoyed their respective clubs, which gave my husband and I time alone. We all loved dinning at the Fantasy ... Read more
