We are a retired couple from Texas. We arranged two cruises in Florida before we stayed with family on spring break there when we returned. Seemed to make the long drive more worthwhile! We left the Conquest in Ft. Lauderdale and ... Read more

The Dream was another dream vacation for our family. Our 17 year old son and nine year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed themselves again. We buy "Faster to the Fun" when we cruise and even with the staggered embarkation we are ... Read more

this ship was a-rockin' and not in a good way. The seas weren't overly rough, but the ship rocked constantly. I have cruised before, and I know that this is not the norm. We had no trouble with embarkation, because we waited until 2 ... Read more

We were quite excited to go on the Carnival Sunshine with the new waterworks slides, ropes course and new decor as well as the itinerary, The reasons we chose this cruise did not let us down. We were thrilled with the muted colors, as ... Read more

When thinking about this cruise, my mom and I were a little bit apprehensive about going on Carnival during Spring Break. But, we easily justified it using these two reasons. 1. We survived Carnival Breeze over Christmas with 1,500 ... Read more

Great time as usual on Carnival Glory. My thirteenth cruise with Carnival, and they did an excellent job once again. Everyone was friendly and tried to make our experience the best. My wife had a couple of massages and was very pleased ... Read more

This cruise fit our spring break schedule and air travel worked. We had been to 3 of the 4 ports and knew we liked them and were excited to see the Cayman Islands which were new for us. Not that it matters at all to enjoy a cruise but, ... Read more

The Carnival Magic was indeed a magical vacation. I can’t begin to fathom the negative reviews I have read about this magnificent ship. We have been on numerous cruises, and this was our favorite ship thus far. My husband (51), 16 ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I liked the itinerary and the port. We stayed at Country Inn and Suites in Cape Canaveral and love that hotel. (I reviewed it separately). I had heard good and bad about the Sunshine but we decided to give it ... Read more

We booked a Balcony Spa cabin, because the Suites and Havanas were sold out. We talked to several fellow cruisers and to snatch one of the Havana Cabins you need to book like 1.5 years in advance, simply not possible for us. We can only ... Read more

We have been on a number of cruises in the past all Carnival. We chose Vista because it was the newest ship. I went with my wife and 2 teenage kids. I had read all the reviews starting 5 months from booking. I do this for every trip I ... Read more

We just got back - overall great, but a few things to note. Rooms - standard Carnival - all good, but seems to be less room to unpack. Never a good space to dry out bathing suits! Dining - always a great experience in the dining room ... Read more

My family and I went on the Spring Break cruise to Cozumel and Costa Maya! We had a great time (14 of us). The cruise director, Mikey was very memorable and it was an amazing cruise, but it was so rocky that I ended up sick to my stomach. ... Read more

I believe that this is our 6 or 7th cruise and third with Carnival. Our last cruise was on the magnificent Celebrity Solstice to Alaska, so the Freedom had big shoes to fill. We are family of 5 with 3 kids ages 14, 10 and 6 and we ... Read more

This trip formed part of a two week trip to the west coast of America, this being the last leg of the trip before embarking on our flight back to London. The check in onto the boat was smooth and once on board we were given our access ... Read more

Been cruising since age of four and with carnival since 1985.. The ship is pretty with several areas to relax and get away from crowds. My room steward was sweet. However, I can tell they are having to clean more rooms with less help ... Read more

This was my third cruise, and I (39-year-old woman) traveled with my 8-year-old daughter (her first) and my parents who are in their late 60s (their fourth cruise). My mother has mobility issues and has a scooter, and I have to say that ... Read more

The departure was easy.. I highly suggest to purchase the "Faster to the Fun". You board the ship faster but best of all you are the 3rd group off the ship which was at about 8am on our cruise. Food...lots to eat.. ... Read more

After walking into the atrium at embarkation and being totally unimpressed with the "cone of light" I found myself thinking that the ship looked like it was finished but was waiting for the decorator to show up. The Vista, unlike ... Read more

Let me start by setting the scene for anyone who reads this. This is my first review on this site, but not my first cruise with Carnival. I am a 28 year old man from Alabama, and I sail with my wife, Sara, who is 24. We have only ... Read more

We really enjoyed our cruise, we have been on a lot of. Rushes and the shows were wonderful during this cruise. I have to say the only disappointment is the punch line lounge, every comedy show had lines out the door and down the hallway, ... Read more
