I really like sailing on a large ship on the ocean. Okay, I haven't hit really bad weather yet, but I enjoy the sky, the wind, the ocean life, the birds, and I like watching my fellow passengers. The nearly unlimited variety of things to ... Read more

My wife and I planned this seven-day cruise on the Carnival Sunshine out of Port Canaveral for over a year, right down to the excursions. We went in early December so it was a mostly grown-ups cruise with a few children onboard. We ... Read more

Leaving from Miami was such an improvement from Galveston. I told someone in the terminal, "Ya'll have it going on in Miami!!" Even the Muster drill was smoother, they scanned our sign and sail cards and we waited in ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our honeymoon because it was a cost friendly alternative to a destination but it allowed us to visit many awesome places. It was fabulous in every way. Our room was always clean and the steward was awesome. Every ... Read more

We have been on two other cruise lines, and there certainly better options out there. The food was sub par at best. The best options where for breakfast. Problem with that was at one time or another there was no coffee. We felt that the ... Read more

The ship is very nicely lay out. Beautiful ship, making use of technology is a plus for Vista using the Hub App that's free . Embarkation however was not very organized. we arrived from airport around 1:00 pm taxi fare was $27. There was a ... Read more

Our first cruise, so there was a steep learning curve! We did enjoy ourselves on this cruise and found the ship to be just fine except for 2 things: one, there really needs to be an adults-only area. We could never get into a hot tub ... Read more

This was going to be our introduction to the New Carnival Vista, but after getting a great deal on the TA, this was our second trip. The embarkation was a mess in NYC. What I heard later was that 250 Travel agents were given the ROYAL ... 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

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
