I have always enjoyed cruising with Carnival but this last trip has me questioning my loyalty to them. It appears that Carnival changed their standard of "house keeping" of their boats. Our Stateroom was a balcony room and we ... Read more

We cruise to be able to get away from everything and not have the phone ringing constantly, so in that aspect the cruise was excellent. However we just had the feeling during this cruise that Carnival was trying to cut so many costs ... Read more

We just got back from 4 day cruise to Bahamas out of Port Canaveral on the Victory. We had a WONDERFUL vacation. I must say was a little nervous about sailing on the victory reading so many negative comments on different forums. I am not ... Read more

This was a great cruise for us; we were part of a large group. This was my 7th cruise; all our cruises have been on Carnival; Fantasy Class, Sensation and Conquest Class. There seem to be a lot of mixed opinions on this ship. We found ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because we also wanted to visit Kennedy Space Center which is nearby. My 16 year old son and I went on the cruise together. We stayed in Cabin 8427 and could not have asked for a better experience! ... Read more

Just a get a way for the wife and myself, what a great time we had. We booked on short notice, less than two weeks before setting sail, got a nice room on the bow of the ship just below the bridge, and had a semi private deck, not known ... Read more

We typically sail on other cruiselines but thought we'd give Carnival a try based on recommendations from co-workers and friends. We were looking for a short family get-away before our kids (17,13, 6) returned to school. NEVER did we ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the size of the ship, one of the largest ships doing a short itinerary. The date we required happened to be the cheapest of the year. This was my 7th time on Carnival and i am now questioning my ... Read more

We were on this trip as an annual birthday celebration with friends. This ship is older, which we knew but we expected it to be clean - it is in need of a deep cleaning. Our balcony room and balcony were dirty - cigarette butts on balcony, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for 1) price of balcony room, 2) length of cruise, and 3) port. We booked online, without selecting a particular room, just a balcony. Was surprised when finally received our room number, it had an extended balcony ... Read more

We went on this cruise as a celebration for a group of us passing paramedic school. Boarding the ship went pretty smooth. Our interior cabin was pretty small, but expected. The crew members were all friendly and helpful. But, I found the ... Read more

We wanted to give Carnival another chance and they disappointed again. Like many, we had started out as Carnival customers and really enjoyed our first couple of cruises. Over time, we started to see a decline in service, food and ... Read more

We were cruising to celebrate a graduation. We were offered an upgrade to a stateroom with a bigger balcony and jacuzzi tub about a week prior to our departure. The upgrade cost almost 400 dollars and was NOT worth the price! The room ... Read more
