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

My third and likely last Carnival cruise. Let's stars with boarding... going thru security and check-in were painless. And then we were sent to stand packed a waiting room for quite a long time before we could board... I mean come ... 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

For a company that depends on pinpoint accuracy in navigating the sea, it sure seems to have lost it's way in where they are heading. If you're used to even a glimmer of perks as Gold member or just a loyal customer get ready for a course ... Read more

The checking and boarding process made getting on a plane look like going through a McDonald's drive through. I suggest getting there early and having a carry on bag that will get you through the first day. i.e. suntan lotion, book, ... Read more

This was my third carnival cruise. Most of my cruises have been taken with Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) and I've always been very pleased with that experience. What made this cruise a no-brainer to go on was that I received a free-cruise ... Read more

The cabins were a good size bigger than I had thought. The staff was real helpful with my mom who had arrived in a wheelchair and need a cooler for her insulin. The excursions where a bit pricey but the guarantee that the ship won't ... Read more
