I was reluctant to book a Thanksgiving cruise but it was my boyfriend's 35th birthday and I wanted to surprise him with something memorable. Both embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. Let's jump right in: The Ship: The ... Read more

This was my 29th Carnival cruise. If I was blindfolded and placed on the ship, I would not have been able to recognize it as a Carnival ship by the interior decor, which was pleasing and tasteful. But when I saw the plastic trees on Lido, ... Read more

My wife and I took our first cruise and had an excellent time on the Carnival Pride. The ship was delayed 2 hours and embarkation was not pleasant. We were given very little information and waited in line an extremely long time. We had ... Read more

This was our 15th cruise and our 2nd worst! The worst one was Holland America after Carnival bought it! Our cabin was fine as were our waiters and that's about it. The food (except for Guys and the Steakhouse) was bordering on awful. ... Read more

We originally booked a cruise on the Carnival Victory. A few months after booking we were sent notice that our cruise had been switched to the Fascination - an older and much smaller ship. For the Victory we had carefully planned where ... Read more

We were celebrating our 25 Wedding Anniversary, so we opted for an Ocean Suite on this cruise. We had priority boarding, and pretty much walked right onto the ship after parking the car. It was smooth, and quick. The Conquest is a ... Read more

We thought overall it was a very good cruise and well organized. Yes, there were some mis-cues, but once we straightened them out, the mis-cues were corrected and we carried on. I can tell you emphatically that those reviews that thought ... Read more

We chose this cruise when I received a great past guest offer. This time we did a balcony which was the best decision ever, enjoyed being out on it all the time we were in our room. We chose deck 7 in middle which was very comfortable ... Read more

It was our honeymoon cruise and first thought when seeing the interior of the ship.. It looked like a casino interior with Americana that vomited everywhere. Gold painted eagles on every column in the elevator waiting areas, busts ... Read more

Cruised the Sunshine out of Charleston on 11/6/16 to Nassau & Freeport. Worst embarkation EVER! Will never cruise out of Charleston again. But, despite the embarkation fiasco, it was an enjoyable cruise on the Sunshine. We had an ... Read more

Whenever there is a new different ship or itinerary out of Charleston we try to make it . Bermuda is a place you need to make sure you go when you can . It is NOT in the Caribbean . All of the island is very pretty . Having arrival times ... Read more

I chose this cruise due to trying to plan way in advance of another event while taking advantage of a reduced deposit sale. Of utmost importance to me as well was booking a HA cabin for my scooter which factored into my decision to book ... Read more

We chose the cruise because of the itinerary and we wanted to stay on Puerto Rico for a week afterwards. The taxi from the airport to the ship was only $25 for two persons with 4 bags. We had to wait a few extra minutes to get a driver ... Read more

We have sailed Carnival a few times and we wanted to try Splendor for her thermal suite/t-pool. I am happy to say that we completely enjoyed the Thermal Suite in the spa - temperature was probably a little too warm for me, but my ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise with Carnival. Our first in 2010 was awesome. The last two have seen a steady decline in food and service. The dining room menu is uninspired, with good service, but warm to cold servings. The food tasted ... Read more

The ship is definitely an older one, but kept up very well, it's going in to be upgraded in the fall of 2017, so I'm sure it will be brought up-to-date then, but ut was still a fun ship! Our cabin was typical, great stewardess (Richel, I ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines and we enjoy the "Fun Ships" approach to vacationing. Overall the cruise was well worth the money and we did have a lot of fun. Embarkment was delayed due to customs taking ... Read more
