We got back from our trip to Cozumel & Progreso on July 26, this entire cruise sucked! It was a total disappointment. From the food to the entertainment. The kids that were on the boat had more fun then the grown ups. Who wants to go ... Read more

The Dream was truly a dream cruise. I went on this cruise as a single. Carnival sat several singles together for the early dinner and we hit it off pretty well. After dinner we would go to the shows or the comedian acts or sit outside the ... Read more

This cruise was the second and last chance for Carnival, as far as I was concerned. I had sailed on the Elation out of New Orleans for my birthday back in November, and was, and this is the nicest way I can state this, overwhelmed with the ... Read more

I had always had an interest in cruising, but something or another had always prevented my from trying one. Until last month, when things aligned just right and I was able to sample this one. I'm very glad I did, for many reasons. ... Read more

Fantasy is the oldest ship in the Carnival fleet--almost 25 years old. It is a small ship, and it is a matter of preference if you like this. Most of my cruise was fine until Thursday. Two days before the end of the cruise sewage started ... Read more

Having cruised with Carnival previously on Destiny we decided to go with Carnival again for a winter break. Let me just say that cruising in the winter is VERY risky weather wise. The first day and a half it rained and was very cool out. ... Read more

The ship was small and certainly not outstanding to say the least. Very dark. I like bright decorations. I did not enjoy the lido deck on this ship either. Mostly drinkers. (kind word). I don't see the point in becoming so drunk you can't ... Read more

I went on a NYE cruise with a large singles group (~200 people). A friend of mine sailed on the Breeze in April and loved it so I signed up. Staff, though courteous, seemed sparse than in prior years (an obvious sign of Carnival's cut ... Read more
