We chose this trip due to being close to Charleston and having been on the Ecstasy in October, 2016. It was also a celebration of our tenth anniversary. When we arrived in Charleston, the line to park cars was non-existent. It went ... Read more

In Oct we ran into Hurricane Matthew and didn't make it to Carribbean! So with an extra incentive from Carnival we decided to sail on the newest ship The Vista and treat ourselves to a Havana Balcony. It will be hard to go back to a ... Read more

My main focus when choosing this cruise was the ship. I am a huge craft beer person and the second I heard about the RedFrog Pub & Brewery, I knew my next cruise HAD to be on the Vista - and it did not disappoint! We flew into ... Read more

I have traveled on many different cruise lines and only picked this cruise because of the ports of call and it fitting in with our schedule. I knew when I booked it not to expect very much. I only saw this as a means of transportation ... Read more

Don't get me wrong, we had fun, but we had to be flexible and patient and drink a lot of Maria's martini's to do so. We have cruised multiple times before on multiple cruiselines, including Carnival and so we read all the reviews ahead of ... Read more

This was our first time on a cruise. We researched it for a LONG time before choosing. We had a budget and with it being our first time we didn't want to be gone too long. I am prone to motion sickness (pretty bad) and was not sure that ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on Glory. We do not care for a lot of partying or adult themed atmosphere but once we realized we didn't have to be around all of that we really had a great time. There is so much to do beyond these activities ... Read more

This was my first cruise so take that into account of my experiences. The boarding process was rather painless. We stood in line for around 30 minutes, but their was air conditioning and not a big deal. Once we were on board our room was ... Read more

We live in Charleston, SC, so we picked the Ecstasy for the pure convenience of not having to travel to the departure port. We have previously cruised on Princess and Royal Caribbean, so I admit I was a little nervous about trying ... Read more

This cruise started badly when Carnival changed the port itinerary a few weeks prior to departure and didn't have the courtesy to inform us. We found out by accident that the visited ports had changed, and we had to dig through the news to ... Read more

We chose this cruise to get away for a long weekend. What a mistake. Food was bland and we found hair in our food TWICE! Yes, we reported it. Drunk people running up and down the hallways at 2am every night. This is what happens when ... Read more
