FANTASTIC SERVICE! Our cabin steward was awesome always bringing us fresh towels, ice, and making our birthday cruise special. Check-in was a breeze. The ship is definitely looking older but still kept up. The best part of the cruise was ... Read more

Nothing particularly good or bad to say about this cruise. If you are a craps player I would choose another ship that has more than one table because this cruise had so many players you could not get on the table. But they have 2 roulette ... Read more

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

I chose this cruise as a first time cruise experience. My boyfriend and I went to get away and it was the perfect time for a trip due to our work and my graduation time. The cruise was horrible. I kept trying to tell myself that it was ... Read more

We planned a trip to the Eastern Caribbean with a family of 10. Some of our family had cruised before, others, like my husband and myself, had never cruised before. I have to say that now that we have experienced our first cruise, we are ... Read more

Cabin was clean, however our bathroom flooded on the last day and it spilled out and flooded the hallway as well. Also, the balcony door had a leak and our floor near the door and bed was soaked. We had a group of 8 and nearly all cabins ... 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 due to the itinerary, the three stops in the Bahamas were wonderful. The Embarkation process was relatively painless. We did not wait very long in line for security or for our boarding zone to be called, maybe about ... Read more
