Nice cruise, bad food

|

We chose this as a last minute cruise. We booked an interior guarantee and got upgraded to a balcony (8201). A terrific financial deal. The crew was nice and it was a shorter cruise (4 days) but the food and ...

An affordable cruise experience with Highs and Lows

We chose this cruise for both the itinerary and for the low price. In retrospect, I think we would choose something different next time. With Key West's stop being just a few hours in the early morning, I think we ...

Some good things, some just ok things

We chose this cruise because it was the same itinerary from the same port we took on our honeymoon 25 years ago. Embarkation/Debarkation were both very smooth. Quickest on/off the boat we have had. Carnival's new ...

Awful septic stench in our room. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

We chose this cruise because it was on dates that fit into our inflexible travel schedule and the price was right. It was me, my wife our two young daughters (6 & 3) and my mother. We had an ocean view suite and a ...

We enjoyed parts, but buyer beware. Best Piano man ever.

They say that there's no such thing as a bad cruise. You're not at work. You're healthy and fortunate enough to afford such a luxury. But there are levels to these things. In case you don't want to read a novel ...

I wanted to love it, but

A Quick But Fun Experience

We took this cruise because it fit between two weekends in which we had big events. This became our bridge to them. It helped that I had never been to the two ports of Key West and Cozumel. I didn't have high ...

Awesome Checkin In - but that's about it!

The Carnival Victory is a ship that needs to be put out to pasture. The ship looks about as old as they get, despite Carnival's supposed "refurbishment." From what I can tell, all they did was add two fast-food ...
