Not so exotic

I chose this cruise to go visit Cuba and Key West with my husband. Carnival has found a way to nickel and dime you even when you pay for all such as drink package. No bartenders except in serenity that were eager to ...

Our group of 5 made a last-minute decision to book this cruise, and we grabbed what seemed to be one of the last 2 or 3 cabins available about 2 weeks before departure. A few days later, we then added another cabin ...

We chose this cruise for two reasons: we wanted to visit Cuba, and the ship was sailing out of Tampa, a short drive from my home. Just for a point of reference, I've previously taken 20 or so cruises on many ...

Cruise to Cozumel and Cuba

This was our 12th cruise, 11th on Carnival. All of the others have been on either the Destiny, Triumph or Conquest Class. There is a huge difference in those classes and the Fantasy Class. We had 63 VIFP days and ...

Mystery Cruise

We took this cruise to see Cuba. When we arrived at the dock a rep told us that Carnival was not sure if the Paradise would goto Cuba because of hurricane Irma. Many passengers stayed out waiting to see if the ...

Cuba was the trip of a lifetime. The staff was wonderful to us and really only had one issue with a bartender at the comedy lounge. Fortunately our normal bartender came in and helped out and cut him off as he was ...
