We enjoyed our cruise. We had not cruised for 2 years and found some of the changes to be good. We appreciated being able to change our dining time to Anytime. We had a great room steward named Gede. Our room was always quickly made ... Read more

The cruise fitted in with the timing of our holiday in USA and was during our time in Florida. Our OV cabin on deck 1 was clean and comfortable and close enough to the lifts for convenience but far enough away for noise reduction. The ... Read more

Do not travel or trust carnival cruises. They do not honor their "Best Price Garuantee." I found a cheaper price and followed the process but never heard back from them - ever! My room was filthy; chewing gum stuck under the ... Read more

What should have been a relaxing and enjoyable vacation celebrating our anniversary was unfortunately the worst vacation that myself or my significant other have ever had the displeasure of enduring. Upon boarding the Imagination, my ... Read more

Embarkation: We were traveling with my father, who is temporarily in a wheelchair. Embarkation was very easy. They took us to a special check in desk for disabled people. We waited maybe 10 minutes, then headed up and were on board. ... Read more

Our group of 6 girlfriends had a fantastic cruise! We met so many nice people and genuinely had a great time. Note - when picking a boarding time, go early. Our flight was in early and we got there early and then had to stand around ... Read more

Embarkation was perfect...no line no waiting. Only issue was the guys taking your bags in the very beginning begging for additional tip money after tipping them. Keep in mind this was my very first cruise ever! So i was excited and ready ... Read more

We sailed on the Carnival Breeze for spring break in April 2016. (This was our 13th cruise overall, 6th on Carnival, and 2nd on the Breeze.) Embarkation – The port workers were strictly enforcing the entrance time on your boarding ... Read more

Just home from the 6 night Breeze out of Tampa. The cruise exceeded my expectations greatly! I had read many so-so reviews on here about the ship and Carnival in general, I was not expecting the fabulous time we ended up having. FTTF ... Read more

This ship was perfect and way better decor than any other Carnival ship. It's a BIG ship, but I love it. It's a nice way to burn that cruise weight. If you didn't like Carnival because of the ship design, try the Breeze. Embarkation ... Read more

We were a family of 5 - two adults, 2 kids (6 & 7), and a grandparent. We booked this specific cruise primarily because we loved Half Moon Cay so much the first time, and we had been on 3 previous Carnival cruises. We understand that ... Read more

I guess I was spoiled by the supreme food and service of a Celebrity Panama Canal cruise. This was my 3rd cruise. They only get an average 3 star rating from me. Food was not that great in dining room or in the buffet. In the dining room ... Read more

After reading all the negative reviews, we were surprised. Yes, the Miracle is an older ship and need a facelift, but overall it was nice and we had a good time. We arrived the day before our cruise and was at the pier by 11 am and ... Read more
