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

Before I get into my gripe about all of the things we did not like about our experience on the Carnival Freedom, let me start by saying that this review does not apply to the wonderful workers - room service, housekeeping, and dinner ... Read more

Although my personal circumstances put a huge damper on my cruise experience onboard the Carnival Miracle, I will say that there were no shortage of things to do. The staff was generally pleasant, the activities were well planned, and ... 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

While this cruise/ship is not the most elegant, it certainly is a lot of value. Our cabin was quite adequate (an inside cabin) as we spend very little time in it. The food was quite good, especially in the dining ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise for our 20th anniversary. We sailed out of Jacksonville for a 4 day cruise. Initial first impressions of the ship were that it is older. The decor inside is a bit gaudy with all the brass and loud ... Read more
