It was our honeymoon cruise and first thought when seeing the interior of the ship.. It looked like a casino interior with Americana that vomited everywhere. Gold painted eagles on every column in the elevator waiting areas, busts ... Read more

Cruised the Sunshine out of Charleston on 11/6/16 to Nassau & Freeport. Worst embarkation EVER! Will never cruise out of Charleston again. But, despite the embarkation fiasco, it was an enjoyable cruise on the Sunshine. We had an ... Read more

Reservation/help desk was very helpful and really cheerfully answered ‘any further questions’. Two seniors sailed on the smaller friendly Carnival Freedom. This review is not for their bigger ship sailing the same day. ... Read more

Whenever there is a new different ship or itinerary out of Charleston we try to make it . Bermuda is a place you need to make sure you go when you can . It is NOT in the Caribbean . All of the island is very pretty . Having arrival times ... Read more

I chose this cruise due to trying to plan way in advance of another event while taking advantage of a reduced deposit sale. Of utmost importance to me as well was booking a HA cabin for my scooter which factored into my decision to book ... Read more

We chose the cruise because of the itinerary and we wanted to stay on Puerto Rico for a week afterwards. The taxi from the airport to the ship was only $25 for two persons with 4 bags. We had to wait a few extra minutes to get a driver ... Read more

We have sailed Carnival a few times and we wanted to try Splendor for her thermal suite/t-pool. I am happy to say that we completely enjoyed the Thermal Suite in the spa - temperature was probably a little too warm for me, but my ... Read more

My husband and I have been on a lot of different Carnival ships - from small to large, old to new. However, this was our first time cruising out of Galveston. Ship: The Breeze itself is a nice ship. We stayed in a spa balcony cabin ... Read more

We are used to sailing Sensation, Fascination and Fantasy so familiar with the class. We had a good idea of what to expect on the E. On board ship, most everything we liked. Service, room steward, bar service was all great. The ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise with Carnival. Our first in 2010 was awesome. The last two have seen a steady decline in food and service. The dining room menu is uninspired, with good service, but warm to cold servings. The food tasted ... Read more

The ship is definitely an older one, but kept up very well, it's going in to be upgraded in the fall of 2017, so I'm sure it will be brought up-to-date then, but ut was still a fun ship! Our cabin was typical, great stewardess (Richel, I ... Read more

I have cruised carnival twice before. I have also booked excursions before also. This was one of the worst cruises I have been on. First I asked for a room with a window because my husband hadn't ever cruised and I tried to think of ... Read more

I am a 3rd-timer with Carnival. Last trip was a while back, but my husband and I had the privilege of cruising on the Freedom in 2009, just 2 years after it's inaugural sail in 2007. Negative: The Conquest (built in 2002 or 2003) by stark ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the port mainly. The ship was wonderful with so much to do, I don't believe we even did everything there was to offer. Embarkation was smooth and so was disembarkation. The ship was clean, the staff was ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with Carnival, sailing from Galveston TX. We used the "faster to the fun" feature this cruise and it sure was a big advantage. We had expedited embarkation (we were in the first 100 or so people to go ... Read more
