We've been on two other Carnival cruises on different ships each time. This by far was our worst experience cruising. It was our honeymoon cruise so we booked a balcony room on the 7th floor so we could enjoy the views from the balcony. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a new ship and we used to love carnival. We have not been on a cruise for several years because we built a cabin in the mountains and were spending our vacations there for a while. We remembered how we ... Read more

This will be our last cruise with Carnival. The Triumph is simply falling apart. While laying out deck the ship blew hot oil out of the smokestack onto sunbathers. The crew had to help everyone clean themselves and then shut down the ... Read more

The Carnival Pride was seemingly decorated by a team of gypsy designers. The hallways are papered in scenes of Venice from the time of the Doges - which is fine - but the rest of the place, including the ceilings, represent a ... Read more

Have been a frequent cruiser on Carnival and usually have had very good experiences. Carnival is not, nor does it pretend to be, an upscale or "luxury" line. You're on the fun ships, after all. What you will get is decent food, ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was a slightly bigger ship than what we've cruised on before with Carnival. I must say that we were disappointed that the shops onboard didn't offer a lot to shop for. It seemed to us that the smaller ships ... Read more
