We enjoyed our cruise immensely, but not necessarily because Carnival offered such a great ship, crew or experience. We NEEDED a vacation and there would have been little, in the course of a normal cruise, to keep us from enjoying time ... Read more

Lets start here. There was 11 of us that booked with Carnival Cruises. They booked us in a hotel and shuttled us to the ship. Well let me tell you about the hotel first. We got there after an 11 hour car ride from Toronto Canada. They ... Read more

My wife and I have been on over 20 cruises on a variety of cruise lines. Never before have I ever been offered such garbage that was being disguised as food. The buffet was scattered over an area so large that by the time you were able to ... Read more

This was our first time since the upgrades. The Red Frog by the pool was our favorite spot- the bartenders were awesome. At night the Red Frog on deck 2 was a great place to hang out – they had a live band everything (one night ... Read more

We embarked on Sunday, February 28 2016 in Baltimore. We arrived at the port at about 1 PM. We waited about 30 minutes before going through security. Then we had a pretty long wait, about 45 minutes or more, to check-in. Lines were very ... Read more

Let me start by saying, we usually sail out of Florida. We're New Yorkers, so we're eager to get to the warm weather ASAP and maximize our time in the sun. However, during the school breaks, which we're restricted to, the airfare is over ... Read more

We flew to San Juan a day early and stayed at the Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel. It was very convenient - right across the street from the port. We checked out of our hotel, walked across the street and we were on the ship within 15 ... Read more

We cruised leaving Baltimore on January 17, 2016, returning February 7, 2016. We decided to give Carnival a chance after sailing with other cruise lines. I know that Carnival had a pretty bad reputation. But I thought that after all the ... Read more

Let me start by saying that I didn’t have a bad time but I could have had a much better time. The poor ranking I gave the public rooms was not a result of cleanliness. I found all public areas to be well kept. The poor ranking ... Read more

If you are someone who is sensitive to motion- BEWARE going out of Baltimore can be rough seas. This was my first time cruising and I spent a majority of the time in my room because I was so sick. I took Dramamine and it didn't help. (I ... Read more

Overall a nice cruise. Had a few issues- 1. Room was very loud. Right above the Ivory Piano Bar. Bar is noisy until "late"- about 12.30am. With smaller kids, that was a little late for so much noise. 2. Balloon drop ... Read more
