I booked this inaugural sailing of the Carnival Vista in December 2015. Used Carnival to book the airfare which ended up being very cost effective. They also allowed me to fly in to Venice Italy two days in advance and also allowed for ... Read more

We wanted to travel by ship instead of flying to the USA, as I can't sit for long periods of time as you do when flying. Also, our Balcony cabin cost us both only $8000 for the whole cruise, which is much less than Business Class. I was ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was going to places we hadn't been and had always wanted to go and the length of the cruise. We thought after that long relaxing we should feel as though we had been on holiday. We were not disappointed at all. ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation were fabulous. We arrived at the Sydney airport, straight onto the bus and were given priority boarding. No fuss at the cruise terminal - did the usual form filling and pretty much straight onto the ship. ... Read more

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 Yes, it is older, smaller, a little worn, a few outdated styles & can feel the waves a bit more than the bigger ships, but I enjoyed the smaller ship with less people on it.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

We're Platinum on Carnival and retired from our jobs so the longer trips are more appealing to us. We had never done a Journey cruise so that also was a positive thing, never been on the Liberty, another positive, and finally there were ... 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

The ship was very nice although the décor was a little outdated - reminded me of the 70's! We stayed in an inside cabin, was adequate. The steward was fantastic as was all the other crew members. We had early dining so that ... 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
