I chose this cruise mainly because I wanted a reasonable priced cruise that would be good for kids. Last year we sailed the Norwegian Getaway for a week which was awesome but this year I didn't want to spend nearly that much, so I opted ... Read more

This ship seemed very well built, however starting to show signs of age and in need of updating. the Cabin was spacious, but also very worn in and more in need of updating than other areas of ship. Mini fridge did not cool items, pieces ... Read more

I chose this cruise because the traveling dates were extremely limited, and this cruise fit the bill. We were a family of 14 traveling, and we booked 4 staterooms, 2 of them suites. Embarkation was a disaster because the person that ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on price, dates and Bahamas destination. We are Florida residents so we drove to the port. We used the prepaid terminal parking and I was glad - at the bottom level they picked up our bags. Easy in and out. ... Read more

Summary – We enjoyed our four-night cruise to Freeport and Nassau. We do our research on CC before selecting a cruise and know what to expect as far as condition of the ship, food quality, etc. so we can adjust our expectations ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise and Carnival has really cut back on the entertainment. They use to have shows every night and it would be packed. The production value has really going down in the shows. They now only have a show on 2 of the 4 ... Read more

First, I have been on several cruises and this was by far the worst. Upon entering my room, i noticed 2 beds and a mattress on the floor on top of what looks to be a lawn chair type frame. I know I DID NOT pay to sleep on the FLOOR! So ... Read more

The crew is very attentive and hard working. Older ship is kept looking very good for its age. Cabins are in need of update but are o.k. some venues are too small such as jekyl and Hyde club. Overall it is what carnival advertises, a ... Read more

I have travel with carnival cruise line since 2006! I have always had a great time on all the ships, but Liberty boat was a disgrace. First the dinning room staff was not really friendly and my goodness if you ask for anything to drink ... Read more

This cruise was a family cruise, our past few have been just wife and I on newer ships and big ones. We never really felt this ship moving much which surprised me. We had a great time on Liberty too. Service was very good, the waiters ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it departed from Charleston, SC and was reasonably priced. Embarkation and disembarkation went well due to Faster to the Fun pass. I highly recommend this for anyone that has the opportunity to purchase it! We ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the location, time and price. That was a mistake. Customer service shouldn't be in their vocabulary bc they have zero. We had no ac in our stateroom for 3 full days after saying something to the attendant within ... Read more

This might sound like I didn't like the cruise, but that is not the case. We sailed out of Port Canaveral and had only one stop, Nassau, Bahamas. We were able to board quickly although we were slightly early in our arrival to the port. ... Read more

I don't usually do short cruises. This was my 29th cruise but only my second 3 day. I live in VA and to travel to Fl for a short cruise is just not worth it. The only reason we did this was it was my oldest son's birthday and he's never ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our daughter in law had never cruised before. She didn't know what to expect and was nervous about motion sickness. We advised this cruise was a good one to try her first cruise because it was only 4 days. ... Read more

Our family cruised with Carnival about 10 years ago and chose this line again because we really enjoyed it. This time we noticed that many things had changed, much to our dismay. We boarded at Port Canaveral, just as before. The agents ... Read more

Celebration for my cousin and my birthday. She lives in NC and I live in FL so Charleston was the choice. I would never take a cruise out of Charleston again. Very disorganized, took over 2 hrs to just park the car and get on board. My ... Read more
