Excellent Cruise on one of Carnival's largest ships!

My wife and I decided to finally go on one of Carnival's newest ships and we loved it. We never felt like we were with 4,000 other cruisers. The layout of the ship makes it very accessible and easy to get around. ...

Just a few quick thoughts about this cruise. The ship is very new very clean and modern. Getting on and off this ship is a breeze. Probably cruise number 17 or 18 and this is by far the fastest and best. A ...

Beautiful Ship - Some Hits and Misses

We chose this cruise because of the affordable price. Maybe you get what you pay for as we struggled a little with other guests at times. Too many drunks, so maybe folks spent their savings on the all you can ...

Three hotels and a hurricane

Port of Miami would not let passengers board the ship on our sail date. Totally NOT Carnival’s fault. Carnival wants nothing more than their ship sailing the full length of time and packed with passengers. We ...

Always check cabin reviews before you book. Most dissappointing cruise.

Outside of carnivals scope, we had a great trip. The weather was perfect for us, all the excursions were fun, and we had no issues in the ports. We booked a spa cabin for a treat (regret choice of the cabin but not ...
