We boarded in 30 minutes flat from shuttle to the port in Charleston to the ship. We had picked an early boarding time (11:30 a.m.) so this may have helped. We took a shuttle from our hotel with free parking for our car during the ... Read more

I regularly receive free premier cruises from Carnival and that is why we chose this particular sailing. It's tough to beat free, but if I had to pay for my Carnival cruises, I would really have to look carefully at the value vs the ... Read more

Baltimore Port could use a facelift. Arrival time should go back to 9 or earlier. Steakhouse was great as usual. Cowboy Steak for me! Best Shrimp cocktail at Carnival's steakhouses. Chianti brand changed to one not as good as the ... Read more

I paid for the faster to the fun which was helpful in getting us on the ship quickly. The safety brief took over an hour 1/2 to complete and was not very helpful, just a lot of waiting around. We made the mistake of going during spring ... Read more

This was my second Carnival cruise, but the first for my husband and kids. I was very discouraged after the switch from Valor to Liberty, and the bad Liberty reviews didn't help at all. Every week I would visit different sites hoping to ... Read more
