This was the third cruise in recent years and by far our worst experience. The boat was over crowded and nearly impossible for handicapped personnel to access an elevator to move between decks particularly in conjunction with excursions, ... Read more

Getting on the ship was easy. I have difficulty with walking, so yes had to walk a bit. Food is fair and did not like the steakhouse, I cancelled my 2nd night. Food quality has come down a notch or two. Surprised you had to pay for ... Read more

The "Magic" is a very large ship, but easy to get around. Very clean, well maintained. We had a great cabin (ocean view) with TWO windows and two bath areas. One had a TUB and was separate from the other. More closet space ... Read more

This cruise was planned because of the port of Bermuda. However it should have been scheduled for a different day as Bermuda stores were closed the first day there. We toured the island and took a sunset sail that evening. It is a ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Legend and it has been redecorated. We liked the decor! Embarkation was fine except my daughter left her passport in her suitcase. So we were put into the "trouble children" pen. (LOL) It was a ... Read more

Our 9th Carnival cruise and we have always been satisfied but this time things were a little different....the food was mediocre and NO lobster. Always had lobster regardless of length of cruise. The ship is clean, personnel friendly, the ... Read more

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 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

Chose cruise because the VISTA was a new ship and believed it would be an uplifting experience. Had cruised with Carnival twice before and both times it was great. Cruised on the Breeze across the Atlantic ocean. Cruise was probably the ... Read more

We love Carnival. Great service and great food. So many places to sit. Never without a chair. We always get a balcony to enjoy the quite beauty of the sea. The staff went out of their way to welcome us. Also let me say that 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

From Trieste, Italy to Barcelona, Spain. Over all, the Vista is arguably quite beautiful though not the most elegant ship, plainly decorated in certain areas but very well in certain areas. It is unlike the other gaudy Carnival ships. ... Read more

embarkation was a chaotic; late sailing need 3 tugs to get out of the port. Needed arms like Popeyes to open cabin and balcony doors. Balcony door has to be shut at all times or alarm sounds. Cruise with the balcony door open is a ... Read more

We choose this cruise because the port of Tampa is a 1 1/2 hours drive from home. We have cruised several times. This was the worse. Room was tattered and ragged. No ice bucket, room service menu, no blow dryer no mini fridge. Room ... Read more
