We have taken several cruises on Royal Caribbean with happy results. This is our first Carnival and will definitely be our last. Most entertainment consisted of audience participation which is funny but also cost nothing to put on. ... Read more

First, I will start off by saying the crew absolutely make this experience wonderful! They went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. The environment was relaxed and casual. I really can not complain about the room or staff. ... Read more

I have been seeing a lot of negative reviews about the Breeze lately and I think those people either work for another cruise line or they are very hard to please. A few things were not perfect, as always, but we had a fantastic time. ... Read more

The cruise was not bad...the ship WAS bad. It is old and dirty and shows in many ways. I wrote the cabin review below so I will skip most of that. This ship is not kept up like it should be. I have sailed on other Carnival ships and ... Read more

I figured you get what you pay for, and I was right. This was my first Carnival cruise and I didn't expect it to be equivalent to the other cruise lines but the differences were pretty dramatic. Not to be picky, but what's up with the ... Read more

I have been on over 50 cruises on almost all the major lines. I firmly believe that you have to adjust your expectation in light of what you pay. The question is did you get good value for your money. It is not fair to say that a cruise ... Read more

We have been on 20 cruises, 10 with Carnival. Jaime Dee is by far the best CD we have ever had. She appears to be involved in everything. Talks with everyone, also spends time letting passengers take photos with her. The ship is a ... Read more

This Caribbean cruise to St-Maarten, St. Kitts, Puerto Rico and Grand Turk was my fourth cruise on Carnival. After being on other ships, I was looking forward to Carnival. This was the worst of the 8 cruises I have taken. Here is what ... Read more

We loved our 11 day journey from Galveston to San Juan. Most of the folks on the cruise were staying to do the 10 day return trip and we wish we could have done this too. We have taken 7 cruises and always on Carnival so we cannot ... Read more

SUNSHINE: MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS EVERYWHERE! I call the Sunshine the “broke, broke” ship because its distinctive feature is the high rate of things that don’t work. We had a premier 11th floor balcony cabin and dealt ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise with Carnival. We have cruised with several others but have found the "Conquest" style ships of Carnival best to fit our likes. Had an ordinary ocean view cabin that was very spacious and well equipped. ... Read more

This was by far the worst cruise I have ever taken. It started off bad and ended bad. First of all, I just getting to the ship on October 4th was a hassle. Months and weeks before the cruise, Carnival stated in their emails to plan on ... Read more
