The biggest waste of money

Review for Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western

Our family decided to take a cruise together. I personally travel for a living. This is absolutely worst experience I have ever had on a trip. The bed in my cabin had trash from previous guests underneath it. My fridge didn’t work and the T.V. would stop working every evening while I was in the winding down from the day. The food was horrible. I added cash to my account at a kiosk. When I went to ...

We just disembarked from the inaugural Caribbean cruise for the Carnival Celebration. This my first Carnival Cruise and it will likely be my last. Overall it was meh, and the food was awful and service was awful everywhere except two bars and the cabin staff. I’ll start with positives. The ship itself is physically nice as any new ship should be. The cabins are well designed and comfortable if ...

We have cruised with Carnival and Royal Caribbean for the last 18 cruises. We love cruising and consider it to be the best way to take a vacation and have a great time: however, that being said we will try to relay the happenings of what we called the worst cruise we have ever been on. Embarkation was a slow and confusing ordeal; it took the check in Person a good 10 minutes to finally get our ...

We chose this cruise because we have cruised 6 times with Carnival and have always had a wonderful time. They called to offer us some special deals on upcoming cruises and we said “Why not do something different for Thanksgiving this year?” and we went for it. We always cruise out of Baltimore or NYC because we live in CT and we prefer to drive as opposed to flying. No cruises out of NYC this ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

We were looking for a semi economic Thanksgiving trip to warm weather. We are driving distance from Galveston and the cruise fair was not a lot more than 5 plane tickets so we ended up taking our first cruise as a family. Overall the trip was okay. The first half day and full day at sea was very rough but we managed okay. At times some of the kids felt slightly nauseas and felt fine when we ...

Thanksgiving cruise underwhelming

Review for Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Western

This was our 6th cruise and our least favorite experience. The ship had some design flaws, i.e. the Liquid Lounge has horrible seating the rows are not elevated enough to see over people, the aisles are to narrow to walk, the ground floor is just common dining chairs with NO elevation at all. Plus the actual entertainment was underwhelming. Most singers were so off-key it was painful to listen to. ...

Just for a little background. I have sailed on the Carnival (numerous ships) as Gold Member. I have also sailed on NCL, Disney and RCL too. Pros: • Boarding. We arrived by parking offsite and taking shuttle to Port Canaveral. Getting on the ship was easy and only took a few minutes. • Room Steward: Our room attendant, Eladio was friendly, we rarely saw him, and did a great job refreshing ...

This is my 6th cruise. I have previously cruised disney, RCL, and carnival. This is my honest opinion and I added in my personal helpful hints. :) This is my 2nd time on the Dream. It is beautiful ship and so easy to navigate. It was my daughter and I, 18 years old on this Thanksgiving cruise. 8 days with stops in Key West, Freeport, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau. Service: ***** AMAZING, ...

Beware the shops

Review for Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Buyer beware: I bought praying cards and bracelets in the store on board the ship. The prices for BOTH items rang up for more than the sticker price. It was embarrassing to hold up the line while multiple staff members figured out how to fix the charges. In the tobacco shop, I asked how many cartons of cigarettes people were allowed to bring back to the U.S. tax free and was told 8 cartons. ...

We did our first carnival cruise right before covid was a thing on the liberty. It was a wonderful experience. I saw the paradise reviews and decided to take a chance since its out of Tampa and we live close. It honestly wasn't horrible. I'll start was cons...going into the buffet area is just annoying. My husband couldnt get the drink package without me getting it too and i dont drink. And there ...
