Short and sweet…entertainment was ok nothing special, food at Lido buffet and Elation Dining Room was not very good, no flavor, meat was tough and the scrambled eggs were awful. Guy’s burger joint was good. Waiting in the omelette line took forever, only one cook. Very limited gift shop options. Mini refrigerator does not keep anything cold. Mixed drinks are super weak. Bingo was fun. Cruise ...

The first Cruse i being on Carnival Sunrise the Comedian was Funny clean and very entertaining, This Comedian A-Train was offensive his Jokes was Flat. He ...

Embarkation was fairly smooth considering a coast guard inspection delaying things for a couple hours. Even with the delay we had a drink in our hands by 2:00. Stateroom is the typical balcony stateroom, nothing new and exciting, 5 or 6 channels on the TV. Nick, Toon, Discovery, Nat Geo and Food I believe. 2 channels of continuous bad movies. Only channels available in the sports bar are ESPN ...

Just got off the Carnival Vista, 7-day cruise from Galveston to Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. We had a good time, as always, but there were a few things that bugged/perplexed me. First, the good stuff: We didn’t have to wear a mask anywhere during the entire 7 days! Hallelujah! Kendall Fyre is a super Cruise Director. She has the energy of 10 people. There are plenty of things to ...

This was as described. Mostly Americans from the south on board. Very casual. Despite dining room dress code, people in shorts, bathing suits, and baseball hats. Lots of drinking and people complaining about being cut off after 15 drinks per day. People standing in the pools all day drinking. Hardly a mask in sight except the staff. I was not one of the smart few wearing one and I brought ...

1. 3 ½ hour embarkation – standing on your feet in the sun in long line with bags 2. No food onboard upon embarkation 3. No instructions for muster 4. Safety briefing provided while guests are mustering - hence only half of the passengers get to hear them 5. Standing in line for 33 minutes to get 2 spoons of food 6. Food Manager Vikas Beri is Missing in Action 7. Location of ...

Least entertaining ship I have ever experienced.

My wife and I sailed out of Tampa for our anniversary on May 2, 2022. There is always something going on, on the ship, however, the cruise was rather boring. We are not big partiers. On our past Carnival Cruises, this was never an issue. Carnival Paradise is the smallest of the Carnival fleet. With that being said, this cruise just didn't cater to our personalities. We ended up with a ...

Great crew, great food; disembarking was a disaster

We chose this cruise because of the price and the port from which it sailed. All in all, it was a great cruise. We've been to the Bahamas four times, so the ports of call weren't anything new and we only got off at Freeport. We just wanted to cruise since it was our first time since Covid. The crew was spectacular, though it was clear the ship was understaffed. Some bars didn't open or were ...

My 8th cruise, my 5th with Carnival. I always have a balcony. Ship was being cleaned, counters being wiped down, and floors being washed, swept, you name it, it was being cleaned. Simon the cruise director was awesome. The best cruise director I have had on any of my prior cruises. The shows were spellbinding. The show 88 Keys was riverting. The casino was a lot of fun with a wide selection ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the ABC Islands. We got a really good price. The food was nothing to write home about. It was pretty well organized. Our cabin was not fully cleaned when we got there. Debarkation process took a long time. We had to wait in lines a long time. The cruise director, Donkey, was fabulous. He wants to go to Alaska but he was told he was too high energy ...
