The Carnival Elation is not as bad as everyone keeps saying. Yes, it is older, smaller, a little worn, a few outdated styles & can feel the waves a bit more than the bigger ships, but I enjoyed the smaller ship with less people on it. ... Read more

The main reason for choosing this cruise was the length and itinerary. What we ended up finding were some nice upgrades to the Glory and fresh activities which included the long lost midnight buffet. If your vacation experience must ... Read more

Starting back when this ship was called the Destiny, this is our third time sailing on the same vessel. I have to admit that this time I was not overly impressed. We missed the opportunity to book "Faster to the Fun", but were ... Read more

I have been seeing a lot of negative reviews about the Breeze lately and I think those people either work for another cruise line or they are very hard to please. A few things were not perfect, as always, but we had a fantastic time. ... Read more

The crew were so nice, they always greeted us in the hallways. The food and service was very good. Cabin was perfect. Each evening the dining room had on the menu an appetizer that was a little daring. I loved the experience of eating ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we felt it would be a relaxing yet fun way to complete our two week holiday in Hawaii and we asked friends who had only cruised once before to join us. We have cruised 10+ times before and most of those cruises have ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was a great way of returning from Hawaii after exploring the "Big Island". Embarkation was swift with no hassles and we found our suite quite liveable. I had purchased a large suite (4273) as I ... Read more

Carnival Legend. What can I say? Decor: Tacky. Food: Average at best (had me wishing I could be at home to cook my own meals). Entertainment: Average to Decent. Musicals were OK, but did not appreciate the juggler joking about ... Read more

The ship was late getting to port from dry dock. Getting onto the ship in Singapore was a lengthy process just getting through the port process. We were held up for an extended period with no information as to why the delay. The gangway ... Read more

To stand and wait over 4 hours in the heat without water, food or seating to get on board was not a good start, Carnival then refunded 25% of fare, okay fair enough. Then to get a cabin where the kids running through the ship all night ... Read more

We have cruised before on Holland America which we found to be exactly to our taste, however the price of this cruise to Singapore was a little too good to be true - and we all know that you only get what you pay for. In saying this, the ... Read more
