This was our 4th cruise with Carnival and by far the worst. The destination was fantastic though. Alaska is beautiful and this was our first time visiting. The cruise itself was the problem. We have always had good to great food in the ... Read more

We just returned from a Carnival cruise on the Carnival Legend and were extremely displeased. This was our 9th Carnival Cruise and our 14th cruise overall. We are Gold members of the Carnival VIFP program and took our first ... Read more

Seattle is a small port, it is not as built up as the Florida cruise ports. You have to cart your luggage into the metal building and up to the scanner. The lines for check in were longer than other cruises these are the negatives, for ... Read more

The buffet was very crowded when the dinig room wasn't open. There was not enough seating. I think if they added Guy's Burgers and Blue Iguana grills! This would relieve the buffet crowd. We enjoyed these venues on the Carnival Breeze ... Read more

Ship older and much more worn than expected. Embarkation was smooth. No need for Faster To the Fun. Debarkation was good except that bag was put in wrong area so it had to be sent to airport. When we received back the frame had been ... Read more

Our Alaskan cruise was wonderful! The only reason I did not give the cruise full marks was the Carnival Legend ship is worn/tired and our dining service was pretty poor on the ship. The Alaskan sights were well worth the trip. Our ... Read more

I have to admit as a first time cruiser, I read and over-read some of the reviews for this cruise before hand. There were 8 of us in total in our group, some who had previously cruised (not with Carnival) and others like myself who were ... Read more

Carnival Cruise Lines provides good price point for the trip to Alaska. In this case the outside pools and sunshine were secondary to the schedule and the port. Carnival has been steady in its delivery for our family. The food is ... Read more

We had a reunion scheduled in Seattle, so we decided to follow that up by taking our two young grandsons on a cruise to Alaska. We chose the Carnival cruise because it was nearest to the reunion. Although I had cruised one time before on ... Read more
