Our favorite vacation is a Carnival cruise so we decided that's how we'd spend our 25th wedding anniversary. We can drive to Galveston in a couple days so we wanted to go out of that port. We chose this particular cruise because the diving ... Read more

To say my husband and I were highly disappointed is an understatement. The lines were long getting on the ship even though we chose a check in window. The food at the buffet was absolutely horrible and it wasn't even warm maybe if it had ... Read more

We sailed on the Carnival Liberty out of Galveston departing on May 2nd. The ship was late to arrive into port due to mechanical issues. That should have been our first clue that this trip would be a disaster. Embarkation was a bit ... Read more

This was our wedding cruise so boarding was awesome as we had priority boarding over everyone else. We had an Ocean Suite and the cabin was plenty spacious with lots of storage. We didn't even use half of the cabinet or drawer space ... Read more
