For a little background information: my husband and I are newlyweds and picked this cruise for our honeymoon because it worked with our schedule and because Charleston is relatively close to home. It was our very first cruise and we don't ... Read more

This was our 4th Carnival Cruise (previously on the Victory and twice on the Liberty) and this was by far the best ship we have been on. The size alone is a huge draw! Between not being able to feel the movement as much and ALWAYS ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it sailed out of Orlando (or what we though was Orlando). We had to drive from Pittsburgh to Atlanta to drop our kids off and wanted to travel to the closest port so that we wouldn't have to drive too much ... Read more

This was a first cruise for us and we are HOOKED! The ship was beautiful and the crew were fantastic. I know some people have commented on the amount of PINK on the ship, but I really liked it. It is an amazing vessel. It was over ... Read more

Embarkation very easy - did not pay for any extra treatment. We boarded at our given time of noon and never had to stop and stand. (This is my 17th Cruise and a cruiser of many different lines.) Balcony room was ready when we arrived ... Read more

HIGHLIGHTS First, I would like to preface my remarks by giving high marks to Francisco and Gregory (our waiters in the Posh Restaurant), as well as our steward, Ida. The Posh Restaurant was the highlight of our cruise. My husband and ... Read more

We boarded in 30 minutes flat from shuttle to the port in Charleston to the ship. We had picked an early boarding time (11:30 a.m.) so this may have helped. We took a shuttle from our hotel with free parking for our car during the ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it is known for really good value for money, a good medium size ship and had good reviews. The food was so good. There is so much to choose from as the dining room alone changes its menu every night. And it's 3 ... Read more

this ship was a-rockin' and not in a good way. The seas weren't overly rough, but the ship rocked constantly. I have cruised before, and I know that this is not the norm. We had no trouble with embarkation, because we waited until 2 ... Read more

I regularly receive free premier cruises from Carnival and that is why we chose this particular sailing. It's tough to beat free, but if I had to pay for my Carnival cruises, I would really have to look carefully at the value vs the ... Read more

Arrived at LAX about 3 hours before embarkation. Driver was at Baggage Claim and trip to the Port was much quicker than I had planned, about 30 minutes, not the hour I had planned flights around. Faster to The Fun was a great purchase, our ... Read more

This cruise went to ports I had not previously visited. We stayed in interior cabins above the Liquid Lounge. If you have problems sleeping don't book these, it turns into a disco after the shows finish. You can hear the thump of the ... Read more

Odd interior décor - lots of pink and gold. Staff at Casino Bar were fantastic. Ship layout was confusing as we generally got lost all the time - especially when finding restaurants (Gold and Black Pearl). Food on Lido Deck ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the itinerary and price. We were looking for a short cruise, not going to the Bahamas. The preferred cruiselines were going to similar destinations for a shorter time, but for more money. We took a chance.. For ... Read more
