Upon boarding the ship, it took over 6 hours to receive our luggage only to find that every item had been removed in their search for alcohol (2 of our bags had been checked by TSA). No respect for personal property or an effort to keep ... Read more

I am glad that I bought FTTF. Checking-in at the port, using the short line at guest services, and debarking when we wanted was great. With 6 foot swells all week, this was the roughest cruise that we have been on. The swells were ... Read more

This was our 9th Carnival Cruise and one of the worst. We find that the management of the ship leads the way and customer service was very poor. We avoid the main dining room as the food is generally poor and pay the extra for the ... Read more

Have been on 25+cruises and the first thing I noticed about this ship was all the slipping and sliding guests were doing on the tile--especially on the LIDO deck. I think that I did a wild slide with arms waving for balance almost daily ... Read more
