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

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

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

My friend chose this cruise and I agreed to it only because of the ports. Based on others feedback about Carnival cruises they have been on I should have known better. I was reluctant at first so I wasn't expecting much. After the long ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the itinerary as we'd never been to Belize. It is also only an hour from where we live and we looked forward to the short drive. I think my 'booking agent' (husband) said he got a pretty good price on a suite. Only ... Read more
