The Dream is a large ship and very much understaffed. From the check in process, to the room steward, the dining room staff, bar staff, it was about the worst service I have ever received on a cruise ship. Carnival now asks that you ... Read more

This was a group cruise. The embarkation port (New Orleans) is not equipped to accommodate cruise ships in excess of 2,000 passengers. There are no separate or expedited check-in for Platinum or diamond guests in New Orleans. The trip down ... Read more

As a first time cruiser, I had an amazing time. Embarkation was smooth and easy. Registering online helped a lot. There was a lot of traffic in the Port of Miami, but not many signs giving you directions, so plan to loop in a few circles. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the great value that we get from CCL. We are VIFP and enjoy the expeditious embark/disembark procedures. We were on this ship several years ago when it was fairly new. The 2.0 upgrade that it has ... Read more

First and foremost, the cruise was overall very impressive and I would sail with Carnival again! The Carnival Valor just came out of dry dock earlier this year so the ship looked brand new. There were lights everywhere and the whole ship ... Read more

Experienced cruiser and WAS not a big Carnival fan. I choose this sailing because of the embarkation port and the itinerary. This was my 47th cruise and my first as a solo cruiser. I was a little nervous. Drove and parked at the port, 50 ... Read more

Let me start off by telling you, I have been on over 20 cruises and this was by far the most fun I've had on a ship. With that said, Carnival really needs to step it up. We were on the ship within 45 minutes of arriving at the terminal ... Read more

I went on a singles cruise where we stopped at Grand Turk, La Romana, Curacao, and Aruba. The Breeze was a little worn, a little dirty, not really bad, but not good either. The food was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. They ... Read more

My first cruise out of Jacksonville and they were very organized and embarkation was very easy and fast. The Fascination was strange after being used to the other ships, life boats blocked the view of the water from many places. ... Read more
