I went on this cruise with a group of girlfriends for a fun weekend. We had a great time together. BUT..... The food was pretty bad, just cheap buffet type food, even the sit down dining was just the same food put on a ... Read more

I was a little nervous about this ship at first simply because of all of the negative reviews I've read. (Only 58 percent reviewers loved this cruise!!! Really?) My thirteen year old daughter had an optimistic attitude while I was in a ... Read more

We arrived the night before and stayed at the Intercontinental. How exciting it was to wake up, look out our window and there the Vista was. She's a beauty. We were picked up at the hotel at 9:30am and got to the port at 9:45am. We ... Read more

This cruise was amazing. The Crew and everyone on the staff was excellent. The food was good everywhere we ate on the ship. The only problem we had was with the unsupervised kids running around playing on the elevators holding everything ... Read more

We chose this ship because it was the newest. Not impressed. Missed the glass elevators in the atrium - wow factor gone. I felt like that tried to jam too much on one ship. Aft pool deck was crowded with two hot tubs and big bar, but ... Read more

Embarkation: Embarkation was not as smooth as it has been on previous cruises. It was very unorganized. For the priority guests when they called diamond guests all of the priority guests went, that includes diamond, platinum, suite guests, ... Read more

The travel dates and departure port (Canaveral/Orland) met with the spring break travel time we needed to take our daughter on her graduation vacation. Considering that the Sunshine had recently come out of dry dock and been refurbished ... Read more

Though I am a Princess girl, I cruised with a friend who is a Carnival fan. She won. The dining room food was excellent, as were the waiters, but the buffet was stingy. The carver meat was always stringy, tough and overcooked. The choices ... Read more

Had a great Easter trip on this cruise. We traveled by taxi from Jacksonville airport to Jax port for $35. It was very easy transportation . As suite guests the express embarkation was a breeze. As always, the sail away party was ... Read more

My family and I decided to take a cruise for my daughter's golden birthday. We are African-American and ranged in age from 15-40. I will keep my review short, but detailed. The ship was old. There was rust everywhere. The cabin was ... Read more

We wanted a cheap cruise to get away for spring break with my 14 year old son. We knew it would not be the best ship due to age and price so had reasonable expectations. The shop overall is very easy to navigate and is in pretty good ... Read more

This is the second time I cruise out of Long Beach to Catalina Island and Ensenada, the first time being on the Ecstasy. This time I went with my best friend who is wheel-chair bound. Her father dropped us at the Long Beach cruise ... Read more

This was a girls trip for Spring Break, a much anticipated week of relaxation away from work and our husbands. Unfortunately, Carnival did not deliver. *Carnival HUB Chat didn't work most of the week *Several areas of the ship ... Read more

I chose this cruise due to the sailing dates and the ports of call. I liked the ship, but it carried a horrid sewage smell throughout the entire cruise. The entertainment was outdated and geared more for the older crowd. I would not ... Read more

We picked this cruise in order to travel with 11 family members during the kids’ spring break. Some of the family lives in New York, and the rest live in California, so we spent the night before the cruise in Miami at the Marriott ... Read more

Is was our third bi-annual Spring Break cruise with grand-kids. Sailing from Baltimore is great since the port is only 40 minutes from our home. We opted for Ocean Suites this time around since the little ones aren't so little any ... Read more

This is my second time on the Pride. We love the Pride! My husband and I were disappointed with the singers on the cruise. We felt their voices were just average (perhaps we were just spoiled from our first cruise when the entertainers ... Read more

We choose this cruise based upon the dates and location of the port. It was the kids (ages 15 & 17) spring break and being based out of Baltimore meant that we didn't have to fly. Embarkation and Disembarkation were so smooth and ... Read more

Service was not up to the usual smiling friendliness I have become used to on Carnival, or maybe I'm paying more attention to all crew. Cruisers have complained about the pink overload/décor but to me it's typical "fun" ... Read more

This was our first Carnival cruise and it exceeded our expectations. Previously, we had cruised on NCL quite a few times along with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. We chose Baltimore because it is within driving distance and significantly ... Read more

Background. We set sail on the Carnival Liberty while our four elementary school aged kids were out on Spring Break. We planned the trip in advance and took advantage of the Early Saver rate, so three of us per inside cabin amounted to ... Read more

We did a family cruise from ages 8 to 74 years old and everyone had a great time. Our son loved Camp Ocean and wanted to be there every night, most nights--even late night. The staff from Camp Ocean, our cabin steward, and our dining ... Read more
