Beware the shops

Review for Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Buyer beware: I bought praying cards and bracelets in the store on board the ship. The prices for BOTH items rang up for more than the sticker price. It was embarrassing to hold up the line while multiple staff members figured out how to fix the charges. In the tobacco shop, I asked how many cartons of cigarettes people were allowed to bring back to the U.S. tax free and was told 8 cartons. ...

We did our first carnival cruise right before covid was a thing on the liberty. It was a wonderful experience. I saw the paradise reviews and decided to take a chance since its out of Tampa and we live close. It honestly wasn't horrible. I'll start was cons...going into the buffet area is just annoying. My husband couldnt get the drink package without me getting it too and i dont drink. And there ...

Due to delays in building and then of course Covid, after 5 rebookings we were able to get onboard the new Mardi Gras in Port Canaveral the day after the port opened due to Nicole. I don’t remember how much we paid for this cruise but it was not rock bottom due to initially paying for the maiden crossing. We had a spa balcony on deck 17; in what turned out to be a great decision. Let’s review ...

Very Friendly Crew, Great Amenities, but this ship needs to be renamed the Carnival Slamorama

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We have cruised on many different Carnival ships over the past few years and have a broad range of experiences with different cabin classes and the amenities and layouts of both their older and newer ships. We stayed in a balcony cabin this time around and as Gold VIFP members, got the almost zero perks our class of membership gets. After sailing 50 nights over the last few years, we still have 25 ...

My wife and I, who are near 70, travelled with another couple and their daughter on this cruise. We have been on approximately 14 cruises in our life and we have two more scheduled, one on HAL and the other on Celebrity. We have so far cruised on Carnival, RCL, NCL, and Princess. We have sailed on 4 cruises since the restart from the pandemic - 2 Carnival, 1 NCL and 1 RCL. We have always ...

Disappointing

Review for Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Western

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We booked this cruise for an exciting itinerary and to sail with friends. Just weeks before the sail date Carnival completely changed the itinerary citing engine issues and maintenance. A much less compelling itinerary. In talking with several crew members, the engine maintenance was scheduled months ago as part of a service contract. It feels like a bait and switch. I think Carnival ...

I recently got off the Carnival Sunrise is September, I enjoyed that cruise so much, that when I returned home, I immediately booked another Carnival Cruise. I found this 4 day cruise on the Conquest that fitted in my work schedule. My boarding group was C04, with a boarding time of 11-11:30am, I arrived at the Carnival terminal around 10:30am and immediately went to check in. It was a very ...

Overall had a great time on panorama

Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The only downside was the food in the main dining room was subpar. I last cruise pre-Covid in 2019 and the horizon in the food was much better almost identical layout to the panorama but the food in the panorama dining room was not good. Food and other venues was good and plentiful overall it was a very nice experience the only exception was going to the main dining room which of course you look ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This cruise was to celebrate my 65th birthday. I traveled with my husband and best friend. We were in a suite (don't remember the level) and this is my story. An additional factoid is I am Platinum and my husband is just shy of Platinum on Carnival. Boarding was a "Breeze" We arrived at the terminal (Galveston) at about 10:30 and were on board by 11:00. We had the quick line because we ...

On October 10th we sailed out of Galveston on the Carnival Breeze. It was our 1st post covid cruise. We have sailed on Carnival multiple times as well as several other lines. The experiences as far as general details were always pretty consistent across all cruise lines. Carnival , though not my preferred line but, we always enjoyed sailing with them and were always pleased with them over all. ...
