I liked the covered dome as the last three days were cold. The covered area made it feel comfortable. The pizza pirate was very good and was a short wait most of the time. The black Pearl was very enjoyable. This was the first cruise we ... Read more

We are Platinum level Carnival cruisers so we've been doing this for a while - and I'm beginning to be irritated by the cuts to the level of service on Carnival to keep the prices at rock bottom. So if you're looking for a low price ... Read more

Embarkation was a simple, quick process, with plenty of helpful staff to look after us. I'm elderly, and took my 3 grandsons, aged 4, 7, and 9 on a 5 night cruise. Our stateroom was cosy but cramped for 4 people. For a longer cruise ... Read more

We booked this cruise simply to relax and spend time together. We were upsold (for $150 each) to an ocean suite just a few days prior to cruise date. We are platinum, so we got the usual free laundry, chocolates, gifts, etc; but the best ... Read more
