This was an awesome cruise. Must say I most enjoyed the cruise director, Kevin Donahue. He was hilarious and seemed to be full of energy, as he was involved with everything. Would go again just to see Kevin perform 80's music. ... Read more

It was my first experience on board. We felt that everyone worked hard to make us feel good and that everything worked perfectly, the waiters learned all our names and served us with kindness. Incredible food and service at Atlantic ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my wife and I had never been on Carnival but had been on several other cruise lines and we wanted to try the Carnival Dream. I look at the ratings up above and have to laugh. This was by far the worst experience ... Read more

This is our second time on the Carnival Pride - we took this ship five years ago on a different itinerary before some of the additions were made. We liked the Guy Fieri Burgers and the Mexican additions. We all found the food to be quite ... Read more

We chose the Vista thinking that it would offer plenty of activities to entertain our two kids (12 & 7 years old). We were very mistaken!!!! Since reviews can sometimes be a bit emotional/subjective, I've tried to compile a list of ... Read more

We really enjoyed our cruise last week on the Carnival Splendor. I was a little timid given the experience we had last time out on a different Carnival Ship but I am glad my wife talked me into giving it another chance. Let me tell you ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was closer to where we live. It was just a 5 day cruise and a good time for first time cruisers. There was 4 in our group. Getting into the port and through the traffic was fine we didn't have to wait in any ... Read more

So this is my sixth cruise, fourth cruise on Carnival and third time on the Splendor. I chose this itinerary because I love Aruba and wanted to see what Curacao was like. Grand Turk has become so commercialized. The locals are selling ... Read more

Not my first cruise but my first cruise with Carnival. The layout of the ship was awful. The casino is on deck 5 in the middle surrounded by clubs. So to get to any of the clubs you had to walk past the casino and all the cigarette smoke. ... Read more

Man, I wish I could give Carnival a better review. This was my first vacation in 2 1/2 years and was REALLY excited. My previous cruise was with Carnival as well in 2015 and it was quite good. But this one? Yuck. First of all, the Triumph ... Read more

My husband, 15-year-old daughter and I took the shorter cruise on Carnival Valor to Cozumel. We had a really outstanding time. We're not 'crowd' people and were concerned about our ability to deal with 3000 of our fellow human beings but ... Read more

I took my 16-year old granddaughter on this cruise on an unplanned whim. Our cabin was adequate but the bathroom was very small, although the balcony was great with lots of room. We liked that the Pride departed from Baltimore (we're in ... Read more

Traveled with hubby, 14 year old and 20 year old. Bought Faster to the Fun. It was well worth it. We didn't have to wait very long to embark; although our port was Baltimore, MD and I've read it's one of the more organized ports from ... Read more

Chose this ship because it went out of Baltimore which was incredibly convenient. Would love to go out of this port again for its convenience and efficiency in parking/boarding. However... this was not the best ship I've been on and it ... Read more
