I have to say Carnival Miracle was a good experience, however, there were so many things that my husband and I did not expect, we are not sure if we would book a cruise again. The day of travel leaving from Long Beach California my ... Read more

The overall cruise was the typical Carnival experience. Nothing negative to note. Yes, the construction was still going on, with all the previous complaints Carnival made sure to give us ample opportunities to get a full refund. Each ... Read more

I've now been on 5 cruises, with this Carnival Conquest being the 5th. I have done two with Princess and two with Royal Caribbean, and those will most likely be the two that I stick with. Let me start off this review by saying that in ... Read more

I was so excited about taking our first cruise with my family. We had been planning for nearly a year, and we had a blast. There were 6 in our party and we had two connecting cabins. 2376 and 2378. It was small, but we expected that. ... Read more

Embarkation was long but very organized. Our unopened water bottles were rejected but they were accepting wine bottles. The ship was clean but a little challenging to find the different areas of interest. The elevators didn't always go ... Read more

We chose this ship because the dates worked perfectly for us, it was an EIGHT night cruise, and the price was too good to pass up. Embarkation went very smoothly. We got on a little later than expected, but were able to sit while we ... Read more

This cruise went to ports I had not previously visited. We stayed in interior cabins above the Liquid Lounge. If you have problems sleeping don't book these, it turns into a disco after the shows finish. You can hear the thump of the ... Read more

I paid for the faster to the fun which was helpful in getting us on the ship quickly. The safety brief took over an hour 1/2 to complete and was not very helpful, just a lot of waiting around. We made the mistake of going during spring ... Read more

This cruise was taken so that my daughter could get a vacation during her spring break from teaching and take my granddaughter on her 1st cruise. It started out with a letter and a phone call message letting us know that boarding would ... Read more

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

I chose this cruise because it lined up with spring break and was a decent price when we got it. There are 4 of us, 2 18's and 22, 25. We drove to the port and didn't book any excursions because they sold out. Good think we didn't though ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise out of New Orleans on the Carnival Triumph. That being said you know we must like it since we keep coming back. I am not going to be biased though in writing a review. It is important to tell the good and the ... Read more

Having sailed with Royal Caribbean and Norwegian many times before, we tried to book a last minute cruise during spring break but could not find a cabin that would accommodate 2 adults and a child. With Carnival being the last/only option ... Read more

I've been on many CCL cruises. I always loved the Breeze. My son and I took this cruise for 4 days. Worked out perfect for his spring break. What a great time. Our cabin was a Balcony 8405. Great location, and a month ago they ... Read more

We chose this cruise, primarily for two reasons; 1) we wanted to give our graduating high school seniors an end of the year gift and 2) this ship was close to our home in Mississippi. This was our first time to cruise and we went with ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a spring break family vacation. This was our first family cruise and we (the adults) were very disappointed. We felt that we spent the entire week standing in line. Whether it was waiting for mediocre food, or ... Read more

I cruise every spring break. I chose this cruise because they dates were right, the price was good, and the debarkation port is awesome (New Orleans). The food in the Scarlet dining lounge was not good, the service was even worse, ... Read more

I chose this cruise based on the ports. We had done this same cruise on the Valor 3 years ago and this being a smaller ship there were a lot of differences. I had a credit from a prior cruise that we cancelled which they applied to this ... Read more

Why chose this because of the itinerary. This is the first time we have been on Carnival (We went on the NCL Escape last year). It was a very good cruise but it lacked in Entertainment and Food. Also, the ports were ok and the shore ... Read more

Looking for a cruise scheduled for my son's birthday that stopped at Grand Turk. This one had good rates for a balcony at the time I booked. Nothing was terrible, except for the (lack of) exercise classes. But when I go on a cruise ... Read more

A 4-Day cruise for under $300 per passenger, good value for an Ocean view cabin. Port of calls were Catalina Island and Ensenada. I wasn't impressed with either port. The first day is a sea day taking a trip south down the coast into ... Read more
