BEST CRUISE EVER

Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

Before I cruised I searched for reviews to ease my mind during this crazy time we are in with Covid and found very little. So I want to share my experience…… Although these are my least favorite ports of the 25+ cruises I’ve been on, the ship and the experience I had last week is five star. It was the first week of fall break and due to teachers in my family, I’ve cruised during many fall ...

We cruised on the Vista in 2019 and had an extended aft cabin and loved it. This time we booked a spa cabin on 14 since the afts were booked.. Occupancy was 40-50% and you could feel the difference. There were no lines and getting on and off the ship was a breeze. We made our appointment at CVS and did the one hour antigen test, screen shot it and printed it. We did early dining and always ...

AMAZING cruise…. Ship was clean and cleaned continuously. Food very acceptable… steakhouse so good we ate there twice. Stayed on deck 11 in spa suite… that’s the ONE thing, but first with the positive. The Carnival Vista Rock Band absolutely a must see… we spent lots of time listening and dancing… Amazing group. The Country duo where really great also we split our time and made as many ...

This was a test cruise for Covid-19 cruising. Masks were definitely worn by everyone, they really check your physical vaccine card, and the Covid test verification for your name to match your passport, vaccine card, and test. We knew they weren’t going to have priority boarding, but they easily could have, at least for Diamond level, there were only 23 of us and some were already on board. ...

Carnival Panorama, Sept 18, 2021 - Back Home on the Water AT LAST

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited we were, after 18 long, lonely months of sitting and twiddling our thumbs to finally be headed out to cruise again. Despite the long, arduous drive ahead, which invariably requires recuperation immediately after, we were totally stoked for the entire journey before us. Leaving our abode in Glendale, AZ, the temperatures had leveled off at ...

I like the Carnival cruise line and have cruised with them before. Most of the cruises have been just amazing, however, this one was really different. Besides all of the COVID testing etc. that has to be done, the ship was sailing at 50% capacity. There were no lines! Getting on and off were easy, the new way to do the safety briefing was so much better, you go to your muster station and they ...

Chose this cruise because the last minute fare was great and it was my first time to sail out of the west coast and to the Mexican Riviera. Ship was built in 2019 and had not sailed very many times before so it was like new. The staff was great in all aspects and since the ship was only about half full we got great service. Very clean, no lines, quick drinks, etc etc etc Felt very safe ...

Review for Carnival Mardi Gras to Caribbean - Western

We were on the 9/4 sailing on Mardi Gras. The lead up to the cruise was stressful with getting covid tests but it was so worth it!. We loved the ship and wearing masks wasn't a big deal to us. The many different dining areas were great. We liked that Guys has its own area now. We had dinner in the main dining room 4 nights. One night we dined in Cucina which was free right now. It was SO good - ...

We were on the Mardi Gras with only 60% capacity. I have been on large ships before and the Mardi Gras does not have the space for a lot of people. The Center Stage area was spacious and beautiful, but it was still too small for some of the events /crowds. For Bingo, there was standing room only even if you got there 1/2 hr before the start time. They did have clip boards in the front/stage ...

To start, embarkation was not all that great. We had a 10:30 arrival time. When we arrived I provided our paper boarding passes and was immediately given an attitude because they were printed 2-sided, we had to wait for a supervisor to come and print us new ones. Testing for the little ones went smoothly, after the results were ready we were transferred over to the main check-in area. Once we were ...
