Hey, I keep taking Carnival; pound for pound, it's as good a (proportional) value as the high-end lines. I never find a lower price and they go where I want to go. After that, well, that's where the "good" starts sliding ... Read more

We're relatively inexperienced cruisers and chose this cruise for the opportunity to get to St Thomas and Turks & Caicos as a get acquainted type of visit. We're normally inclined to stay at resorts so that we can experience the local ... Read more

I did a back to back on the Glory before the upgrade... I was impressed with the upgrades. So I'll start with the important stuff, the FOOD!!! The Guy's Burgers / Blue Iguana are the option they chose to add. Guy's are great on any ship, ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the great destinations. We stopped at Half Moon Cay Bahamas, St Thomas, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. The Bahamas and Grand Turk were the best two locations with plenty to do as soon as you walk off the ship. ... Read more

Since we were on the Conquest before, we felt like we knew this ship since it's the same class. Had a balcony cabin, 8323, and to us, it was a perfect location. Close to everything. Just 3 decks down, you are right at the coffee bar - ... Read more

We picked the cruise based on the travel location... Once on the ship you could see that it was a little run down in places even though it had been through a refresh three years earlier. Would not recommend this ship to anyone for a ... Read more

I had an 8C balcony Cabin (7396) alone for this cruise, but I was not on the ship alone. I was traveling with my sister and her family. First, I'd like to comment on Embarkation. We flew into Miami on the morning of the cruise. We ... Read more

We are a family of four who enjoys cruising with Carnival. Embarkation was very smooth as we had an early check in time and FTTF. The ship and our cabin was in excellent condition. Excellent room stewards. Dining was fabulous. ... Read more

It always amazes me how people are able to write such detailed reviews, but I can provide general thoughts and impressions. This was my 14th cruise and 10th on Carnival so I have some basis for comparison. First, this ship even though ... Read more

We planned this cruise as a family reunion of sorts for my wife's side of the family and ended up having 21 of us ranging in age from 68 to 4! There were cousins that hadn't seen each other in 30-40 years, except thru Facebook. It was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the availability in the time frame that we wanted, and its' reasonable cost. We felt that it was a good value for the price we paid. Overall, the service was very good. Food and entertainment was very good ... Read more

First off, the cruise itself was brilliant. Good service, good rooms (which by the way, only have ONE electrical output) and great entertainment. There was always some type of event going and the servers were great, especially Rio, Thomas ... Read more

A friend got a "free" cruise for two (her and another friend) from her casino play on a previous Carnival cruise. I joined the two of them and paid the difference as well as for a balcony upgrade. This was my first cruise. It ... Read more

Worst cruise I've ever been on in 24 cruises. From the embarkation to debarkation it was very bad. The cabin was nice and roomy and the cabin steward was attentive, but the cabin was right under the Lido deck and their was noise all night ... Read more

This cruise was a celebration of my turning 50 and my daughter turning 16. This was not our first and with our Gold status we got less rather than more. We use to have chocolate covered strawberries in our room the first night. Last year ... Read more

We have cruised a number of times (about 8) on different cruise lines with and without our children. The programs for the older kids aren't that interesting and our kids (14 and 11) didn't care to spend much time participating. Will ... Read more

We had taken this cruise several years ago and had such a good time we had to do it again. The itinerary is one of our favorites. Half Moon Cay and Grand Turk are perfect for getting off the ship and going swimming. Puerto Rico and St. ... Read more

We are frequent cruisers and have cruised on most cruise lines. We have avoided Carnival previously just based upon our observations at other ports. We chose this cruise because only Carnival and Holland go to Grand Turk and we wanted to ... Read more

After spending months reading reviews and blogs after booking our first cruise, I decided I would take time to write one for other first timers. After many years of taking vacations to Disney we decided to do something a little ... Read more
