This was my second Carnival cruise, but the first for my husband and kids. I was very discouraged after the switch from Valor to Liberty, and the bad Liberty reviews didn't help at all. Every week I would visit different sites hoping to ... Read more

This was our family's first cruise and we sailed with my parents and my brother's family (group of 10, total). Ship was easy to navigate and overall very good. We were in Cabin 1236. Clean room - clean ship overall. Food was good, but ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had limited time. We had two cabins, V17 & V40. Embarkation was a "snap" - mainly because we are Platinum cruisers. Carnival treats its Platinum & Diamond members pretty well. The ... Read more

We thought we would try Carnivals newest ship the Vista. This is not a feedback to "trash" Carnival rather to simply forewarn what to expect (we are in their Platinum level and have been dedicated until now... this was our last ... Read more

We really liked our stateroom (a very dated but not worn, roomy 4J with window and large bathroom and easy access to the "secret deck"--we booked an inside GTY so this was a bonus), our stateroom attendant, Guy’s Burgers, ... Read more

This was the very first cruise for both my 17 year old son and I. He has moderate autism spectrum disorder and global developmental delays, so I was very anxious about our trip. We chose the 5 day cruise out of Galveston for our first one ... Read more

This was a great deal for the cost. Embarkation was very smooth. We had a 1:30 boarding time. Last year we had the same time and had to wait a while before boarding. This time there was no line. Our cabin was ready when we boarded. Our ... Read more
