Carnival Conquest was a nice treat this past week. We were on her once before right after her 2.0 upgrade and really enjoyed her then. This trip was not as nice as that one was, but it was still nice. We checked in with faster to ... Read more

I loved this ship, I thought she was clean and spacious. After you get used to the decor, the ship is very beautiful. The food (except the buffet) was great. I love to et breakfast and dinner in the main dining rooms. The servers were ... Read more

8/27 to 9/3/2016 I thought the Carnival magic was one of our best cruises. I have read a lot of reviews, and Carnival must have 2 Magic ships because the reviews are total wrong. The ship is really nice. The cruise director Dr.E is off ... Read more

This was our first cruise, celebrating our 25th anniversary. I did a lot of research and found good things and bad things. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our cruise. We chose a cabin with a balcony and it was great. Mali ... Read more

Worst cruise experience ever! We booked this cruise on the Sunshine because we had a great cruise on the Conquest last November. I can't believe the difference between the two ships. 1. Food was terrible. Chicken can be compared to ... Read more

Alaska was our dream cruise for many years, a bucket list you may say. We enjoyed everything about our cruise. The staff were polite and amazing. The food I had better from other cruises, also with Carnival. I so enjoyed the beautiful ... Read more

Been on several cruises with Carnival. This was the first time we ported in New Orleans. We mostly chose this venue out of convenience for us as we live in Tennessee and did not want to travel to Florida this time. We did not like this ... Read more

I scheduled this trip for our 30 year anniversary. I think it is time carnival retires this ship. The crew does it's best to keep you having fun and comfortable, great job, but the ship is way too old. There was rust in the bathrooms, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for 2 reasons, 1, We wanted to visit Charleston and 2, we wanted to go to Half Moon Cay. Both were great! Can't say the same for the ship. Its old, made LOTS of noises, and smelled bad in the bathroom the whole time. ... Read more

We did this same itinerary last winter on the Carnival Fantasy out of Charleston, and although the Sensation is basically the same ship, Sensation provided far better service, and overall experience than the Fantasy. We chose this ... Read more

This is a short review of our cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy out of Charleston SC 8/20/2016 – 8/25/2016. I have read many reviews on this older ship, but do not agree with some of the negative comments. The Ecstasy was clean and ... Read more

We chose this ship because of the ports of call. We have always been interested in a Mediterranean cruise so when we heard about the Vista being a new ship and spending time in the Med we jumped on it! The ship was beautiful, reminded us a ... Read more

Carnival Vista is only a few months old, its pristine, the workers are constantly working on the ship doing a great job of keeping the ship clean, the cleaners do a grand job & should be applauded. I do agree as my husband said to me ... Read more

The cruise was a free "bounce back" offer from the casino. We wanted to leave from NYC so this was our only option - We did sail with an open mind, unfortunately never again on the Sunshine. This was our 19th cruise on ... Read more

This was mine and DH's first cruise, and we couldn't have had a nicer time. The only reason for the 4 out of 5 was due to the food, which I'll get to in a minute. We embarked out of Baltimore, because we live in the state, about an hour ... Read more

Just got back from a beautiful 8 day cruise off of Splendor (Aug 13 - 21, 2016). Splendor is very typical with other Carnival ships like Liberty and Legend down on the deck where the casino, clubs, piano bar is located. The ships ... Read more

First off, the cruise itself was brilliant. Good service, good rooms (which by the way, only have ONE electrical output) and great entertainment. There was always some type of event going and the servers were great, especially Rio, Thomas ... Read more

The buffet was very crowded when the dinig room wasn't open. There was not enough seating. I think if they added Guy's Burgers and Blue Iguana grills! This would relieve the buffet crowd. We enjoyed these venues on the Carnival Breeze ... Read more
