Having cruised many times, this was my first Carnival cruise. I chose Carnival because of my grandchildren (11 & 9), thinking they would enjoy it. It was their first cruise and even they weren't particularly impressed. The decor of ... Read more

I always sail out of Miami since I live 30 minutes away from the port. I always cruise with my mother and nephew, but they couldn't make it this time. I got to port at 11:00, and was on the ship at 11:30. This has been the earliest ... Read more

This was our 5th family cruise with Carnival, and our 3rd Caribbean cruise. We decided on this cruise because it stopped in Aruba - it was a toss up as to whether we wanted to just spend a week in Aruba or stop there on a cruise. As we ... Read more

Overall Carnival offers a average cruise for an average price. The staff is overworked and under trained. it is very obvious that the cruise line cuts every corner to save money. The worst experience is walking past the casino to get to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of it fitting in prior to another cruise sailing on 5/27/16. We have sailed Carnival before and this was the worst ship yet. Employees seem unhappy and agitated. Bar tenders are rude if you correct them on a ... Read more
