I've sailed "Paradise" many, many times, but sadly, the cruise has gone down hill since the last time I sailed her. Entertainment, in general, and big shows in particular, have hit rock bottom for me. Way too loud, and with ... Read more

I was reluctant to book my cruise on the Vista because of some of the reviews and I am so happy I went for it anyway. I just got back from a 6-day cruise that ported in Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. The ship is perfect, the crew ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it lined up with spring break and was a decent price when we got it. There are 4 of us, 2 18's and 22, 25. We drove to the port and didn't book any excursions because they sold out. Good think we didn't though ... Read more

Booked this cruise over a year and a half ago when tickets went on sail. Since having great experiences on our 7 prior Carnival cruises we were anxious to check out this new ship. It had been a year and a half since our last cruise. I ... Read more

This was my first Carnival cruise, travelling with a hosted singles group of 95, all ages. I enjoyed the cruise, but probably won't repeat on Carnival unless the itinerary is irresistible... it just didn't wow me. Embarkation at Long ... Read more

I chose this cruise specifically for the Grand Cayman port. 5 days, departing out of tampa, two ports. Sounds great! Two days before departure, I received an email that the Grand Cayman port had been cancelled due to technical issues with ... Read more

This was the worst and the best of cruising on Carnival. First, PLEASE believe me that I always go into every situation hoping for the best but...somehow, some way or someone turns my attitude sour. From the beginning when I got that ... Read more

I'm sure the cruise business is a tough one, and they need to make a buck where they can, but this ship is in need of a month or two in drydock to deal with some issues. #1 on my list would be air quality. Everyone I talked to was ... Read more

My friend chose this cruise and I agreed to it only because of the ports. Based on others feedback about Carnival cruises they have been on I should have known better. I was reluctant at first so I wasn't expecting much. After the long ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the itinerary as we'd never been to Belize. It is also only an hour from where we live and we looked forward to the short drive. I think my 'booking agent' (husband) said he got a pretty good price on a suite. Only ... Read more

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

First Off, I want to say I've went and read some reviews about the same cruise I sailed on, and I absolutely hate that my fellow cruisers did not seem to have the same experience that I did. I travel a good bit, so here is something to ... Read more
