Review for Carnival Sunrise to Caribbean - Western

Just back from our 4 nights on the Sunrise. All in all a very good trip, It is a different crowd than what we are used to but everyone was having fun and very congenial. I would go again. Oddities included, there was a dead bird on our balcony when we got there, my husband called it in, about 20 minutes later 2 ladies came and took pictures and verified it was dead, (like we would make that ...

This 5 night cruise to Nassau and Amber Cove was Carnival Elation's premier cruise following the shut down. It was one of the nicest cruises I have taken. Perhaps not the best cruise, but certainly the most welcome cruise. From start to finish it seemed that the staff was charged with one mission: to make everybody happy. Carnival wanted to get his one right, and I believe they did. On ...

Great Cruise With A Few Hang-up's

We truly loved our experience onboard the Carnival Elation last week! This was my husband's 43rd cruise and my 23rd. There were some hang up's with this trip, but the overall sailing was really nice. It was definitely much better than the MSC cruise we took almost three weeks ago. Carnival has a large fleet of ships, but Port Canaveral only has a few options at this time because a few of the ...

Cruising in the Covid era was different , not in a really bad way , it was just different. Carnival requires a negative covid test 2 days before you sail , that was extremely stressful . There's a lot of decisions to make about pre buying internet cheers packages excursions etc.. before sailing having to wait until a couple of days before or gambling on a negative test is quite a is the biggest ...

This cruise was an anniversary gift from my wife, our fourth cruise together, all aboard Carnival Cruise Lines, and all leaving from Galveston, Texas. She chose this cruise because neither of us had ever been to Key West or the Bahamas so the destinations were high on our priority list. They cancelled the Key West stop a few weeks before we left. I know it wasn't Carnival's fault, but it wasn't ...

Wonderful Cruise on Beautiful New Ship!

We just go off the most amazing new ship the Mardi Gras! The ship is beautiful and the staff was excellent! We enjoyed the Atrium on the side of the ship where they had multiple shows and music. The Serenity deck has so many places for couples to sit together, clamshells and day beds and plenty of loungers. A lot in the shade for those of us who do not want to be in direct sun all the time. ...

We''ve been on the Vista, Symphony, Adventure of the Seas and now the Mardi Gras in the past 3 years. All but the AOS (which we chose because it was the ONLY ship sailing in early July) were in their maiden years. This ship IMHO beats them all, even the SOS. Sensory overload from the second you step into the ship's Central Stage. This venue was by far our favorite, from morning to night. Just ...

This was the worst Carnival cruise I have been on. The embarkation process was a little long, but I think that is the same for most cruises. Once on board, everything seemed to be perfect. We put our belongings away and headed to the muster station for the safety drill. We then changed into swimsuits and headed to the pool, ready for a cocktail and some R&R. When we ordered our drinks, we were ...

Pretty Good, but Headed for Troubled Waters at Full Capacity

Review for Carnival Mardi Gras to Caribbean - Western

Review at a Glance (TLDR): - I would give a 3.5/5 if half ratings were possible. I rounded down because I foresee major issues as passenger numbers ramp up towards capacity. - 60% capacity (3,875 passengers) - Excursions are highlight experiences and should definitely be booked in Cozumel and Costa Maya - There is enough to do in Rotan to forego booking an excursion in favor of the ...
