Although my personal circumstances put a huge damper on my cruise experience onboard the Carnival Miracle, I will say that there were no shortage of things to do. The staff was generally pleasant, the activities were well planned, and ... Read more

Checking in and boarding the Glory was a breeze in Miami with FTTF. Met our cabin steward, Samidi, who took awesome care of us all week long, dropped off our carry on bags and headed to the Lido for a drink, relaxing in the sun and ... Read more

Have been a frequent cruiser on Carnival and usually have had very good experiences. Carnival is not, nor does it pretend to be, an upscale or "luxury" line. You're on the fun ships, after all. What you will get is decent food, ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was a slightly bigger ship than what we've cruised on before with Carnival. I must say that we were disappointed that the shops onboard didn't offer a lot to shop for. It seemed to us that the smaller ships ... Read more

It was a cheap midwinter getaway to the Bahamas. It was our first time on Carnival. Carnival substituted ships about a month or so before the cruise and, reading the reviews of the Liberty, we had much trepidation, but we figured we could ... Read more

While this cruise/ship is not the most elegant, it certainly is a lot of value. Our cabin was quite adequate (an inside cabin) as we spend very little time in it. The food was quite good, especially in the dining ... Read more

Chose Carnival Cruise based upon itinerary, ports of call & lower price. Boarding process is a bit chaotic unless you have VIP early entry (which we did). Ship was beautiful; staff was helpful/friendly. Cloud 9 Spa Suite was ... Read more

This was our first time with Carnival and we were a little leery about cruising with them but we really wanted to see the Vista. We have been on several big ships, Epic, Allure, etc and we wanted to see how this one compared. It lived up ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise for our 20th anniversary. We sailed out of Jacksonville for a 4 day cruise. Initial first impressions of the ship were that it is older. The decor inside is a bit gaudy with all the brass and loud ... Read more

We went on a cruise with dear friends. We had been on a few cruises before but not on the Carnival Line. The product feel far short of the expectation. We truly enjoyed the shows, the bands and singers. They were all wonderful, ... Read more

My wife and I have now been on 26 cruises. I read many reviews on the Liberty while researching this past cruise. And I would have to say that most were extremely negative and very harsh. I was getting concerned on this except that I knew ... Read more

Last minute change from Valor to Liberty wasn't a problem. We were on the Valor last May and the only difference between the two boats are their names. We were traveling with another couple and wanted to keep the same cabins next to each ... Read more

We wish there were bigger portions of the meals at the brunch and dinner. Steakhouse only available times were late evening 8-9, we should have booked earlier. Men's steam and sauna were nowhere near the heat range they are supposed ... Read more

We were very excited to cruise Vista in January, 2017. We booked an interior room (6420) for the first time. I will admit that it was smaller than any stateroom we have ever booked, but it was plenty of space for the two of us and all of ... Read more
