Cabin: 7147. Conveniently located to the Forward lifts. Right above Pharaoh and Versailles venues and the children/teen venues so perfect in the late evening. A five minute walk to the Empire Dining Room located Aft. Only noise was the odd ... 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

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

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
