I had a wonderful time on this ship, the whole crew was very friendly including Housekeeping. There was no dissatisfaction for me the whole cruise. I love Karaoke and the two people who hosted it were two women named Kelsey & Maggie, ... Read more

This was the Bloggers 10 hot cruise and I wanted to meet John. How pleased I was to also meet Mr. Radu! The American feast is not what normal Americans eat. Not much was interesting but thoroughly enjoyed the wait staff-Indrawan and ... Read more

Have cruise over 20 times with Carnival. This is my first negative review of any ship. Embarkation and debarkation in NOLA smooth as always. Ship was not clean and rotten odors throughout in passageways and public restrooms. Crew staff ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of leaving from Tampa (30 minutes from home) and the variety of ports on just a 7 day cruise. To make it even better, we were joined by 2 friends who were EXCITED about their first cruise. ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of the ports of call. Embarkation was the worst thing about the whole trip. People were backed up outside and inside. Did not go smoothly. It was supposed to be a new system with specific times to embark but ... Read more

Decided to try Carnival, even though they have had their problems in the past. Thought this might be good since the ship was new. The ship and cabins were clean and the service was very good. The meals were average and the menu was ... Read more

We've gone on several Jan cruises to escape the cold for a few days, drive down and arrive the day before. Stayed at the airport Sheridan this time, very good breakfast. Embarkation was well organized and we got on board with no ... 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

Board required standing in an incredibly long line that move at a snails pace. After getting on board, cabin was not ready for an hours and luggage did not arrive for 6 hours. The cabin was snug and the balcony was tiny. Sitting in a chair ... Read more

Our embarkation went smooth but slightly disorganized. The terminal at Tampa has people disembarking into same area as the passengers trying to board. The Pride is showing signs of ageing. The main entertainment in the Taj Mahal was not ... Read more

We took this cruise because of the ports of call, We had never been to any of these ports and wanted to see them. Everyone on the ship tried to make you feel special and comfortable. The ship though was very cold. Either the air ... Read more

My title sums it up. I thought it would be nice to have 4 days before and after visiting Hawaii. It did not think about the fact we may have to skip a port or 2. Even that did not seem too bad until it happened. In Honolulu, we were told ... Read more

This Breeze cruise was fabulous from start to finish. Food was very good (this is our 16th cruise) - except for the Indian food which was disappointing. Thrill theater was fun for all ages, hydro pool was clean and uncrowded. ... Read more

I did extensive research for a southern Caribbean cruise and opted for Carnival Fascination due to value and number of ports. This was our first cruise as I always thought cruises were too formal and stodgy. This was another reason for ... Read more

We choose the Carnival Ecstasy because it was only a 4 hour drive from our home, as opposed to going to Florida to catch a ship. We understood prior to signing up for this cruise that the Carnival Ecstasy was an old ship in need of being ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the dates and ports to visit. We always try to visit at least 1 new port every time we cruise. We had a group of 7 this time, most of us in our 50's, one 75 and 1 was 19 (our son). We had a blast and were ... Read more
