TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE Worst Cruise I have ever been on! I am going to start with the end. The billing: I roomed with 2 other guests and our bills were completely wrong. By $120. We noticed this after we were already off the ... Read more

This is our second cruise in 2 months. We loved the last one so much that my husband and I decided that we needed a much needed "Honeymoon Redo". So what it wasn't anywhere near out anniversary which is in the middle of ... Read more

This was a different experience and a new boat for us. I certainly learned the hard way about using gift cards to fund my sign and sail pass. Bare with me through the rant. I was short on cash this trip-and unlike the previous sailing ... Read more

Let me start off by saying we had an excellent time and the cruise was wonderful! Ship: Brand New! Second sailing, very exciting to be on. I have to say I was very underwhelmed by the atrium. I am a fan of the atrium's that open up ... Read more

We have gone on several Carnival cruises and have never been disappointed. We like the value you get with Carnival as well as the great food and entertainment. This was our first time to Europe and were so excited that Carnival had a new ... Read more

This was our 12th cruise and perhaps never again on Carnival. We arrived at the port at 12:30 and waited outside in the sun until 2:30 before we moved inside. Control of the lines was poor so that people showing up at the last minute ... Read more

It was a pleasure to do this cruise, it was what we had always experienced and expected! It was like the old days, which really wasn't so long ago! This was our 15th cruise. So we will now be platinum, when we ship out this October with ... Read more

Chose the Magic as we had never sailed on this ship. We have been on over 20 cruises, mostly with Carnival, so we are seasoned cruisers. Just the 2 of us, no kids. Sailed out of Canaveral as it is such an easy port to get to. Both ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise and my husband's 6th. By far, the Carnival Dream was our favorite ship! We had an interior state room and for the 2 of us it was perfect. There was plenty of closet space, the bathroom was the perfect layout and the ... Read more

Our 5 day cruise out of Charleston , SC on the Carnival Ecstasy was so much fun. We had great weather. The ship is a smaller class but was clean and comfortable. Crew was very nice. Food was great. We only had dinner in the main dinning ... Read more

We did this cruise for our 25th wedding anniversary. We picked this cruise because 2 of our kids, not actually but we adopted them anyway, were working on this ship. We are not fans of the Western Caribbean and haven't been there in ... Read more

This was our first cruise as a couple, and as individuals so we have many people telling us what to expect. We had no idea we would love it as much as we did. From the time we stepped foot onto the boat until we left, we had a ball. The ... Read more

Another memorable trip with Carnival. This places us in the "gold" category with thirty-plus days on the water over a period of 25 years , and Carnival still can deliver a terrific experience. The embarkation effort was a bit ... Read more

We purchased this cruise on a flash sale the month before, so it was a bit of a rush, but we'd been researching Southern Caribbean, so it all worked out. A few days before we upgraded to a balcony from an interior (someone called us and ... Read more

To say my husband and I were highly disappointed is an understatement. The lines were long getting on the ship even though we chose a check in window. The food at the buffet was absolutely horrible and it wasn't even warm maybe if it had ... Read more

The food on the triumph wasn't the greatest. I remember one night having to give up on a piece of roasted duck. I say this to lead you into the following; the people and experiences were amazing. Every single person on the ship was, ... Read more

This was my 48th cruise. I absolutely love Carnival, but this was only the 3rd trip out of Port Canaveral for the Magic, coming from Galveston. They have some work to do. Attitude seemed poor from about 30% of staff. Lack of attention ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I had read all the reviews on here before the trip, which made my boyfriend and I nervous that we weren't going to have a good time. Boy was I wrong. We had an excellent time. I understand that Carnival isn't the ... Read more

I have to say I really disappointed right from the beginning of this cruise. If you can at all please avoid going out of Charleston. From the time we arrived in the parking lot to the time we got to our room it took over 3 hours. Getting ... Read more

Arrived in Charleston and was advised by security to drop off our luggage and come back out of the port to park for an hour. Upon re-entry we were told because we had Faster to the fun, we had priority boarding and should proceed to lane ... Read more

Hi, Just some word of advice, you need to be very careful before you decide to cruise with Carnival. The Spirit is in poor shape, in cabin furniture falling apart, gym equipment not working, mini golf course in tatters, broken doors and ... Read more
