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

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
