My husband and I were first time cruisers so didn't know what to expect. We booked the cruise because we thought it was good value. We were on the Carnival Spirit that left Sydney to the South Pacific for 12 nights. We had a balcony on ... 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

This was our second cruise on the Legend and it has been redecorated. We liked the decor! Embarkation was fine except my daughter left her passport in her suitcase. So we were put into the "trouble children" pen. (LOL) It was a ... Read more

The ship was great. Not too large, not too small. I was able to learn my way around within the first 2 days. The steakhouse was really good. Tried that one night. The spa seminars were good. I attended one on weight loss. The ... Read more

I chose Carnival because of price/value for what I was looking for in a cruise. I got more bang for my buck than expected. The entire crew/staff was excellent - they went above and beyond to make sure that we all had a memorable ... 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

Just returned from a 4-night sailing on The Paradise. Wondered throughout the trip why so many do not like this ship. Embarkation was totally without any problems. Once on board the ship impressed time-and-again as to the cleanliness; ... Read more

I flew in the morning of the cruise, arrived at the Tampa Airport around 8:30A.M and easily grabbed a taxi to head to the pier. Yes, it's early I know. It was $25 flat rate from the airport to the pier. I arrived in about 25 minutes and ... Read more

I have been on the Conquest before and was pretty happy with my cruise. I am a smoker and I like that they put some chairs and tables on the deck for smokers to relax and meet people. The ashtrays are screwed to the tables so people ... Read more

I don't even know where to begin. First let me start by saying, typically we only cruise on royal caribbean (one of the most amazing cruise lines) but we decided to give carnival a shot. I can say 100% they blew there shot 110%. Very ... Read more

We embarked via New Orleans on Carnival Dream on 12-6-15. We went to Roatan, Belize & Cozumel. First of all- the process to get into the port via Security check points is long, tedious and you are standing with your carry on bags ... 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
