Food Dining was the Best, the single and the dancing and the excellent service was great, Carnival need better DJ and better Comedian. The first Cruse i being on Carnival Sunrise the Comedian was Funny clean and very entertaining, This Comedian A-Train was offensive his Jokes was Flat. He ...

This was as described. Mostly Americans from the south on board. Very casual. Despite dining room dress code, people in shorts, bathing suits, and baseball hats. Lots of drinking and people complaining about being cut off after 15 drinks per day. People standing in the pools all day drinking. Hardly a mask in sight except the staff. I was not one of the smart few wearing one and I brought ...

My 8th cruise, my 5th with Carnival. I always have a balcony. Ship was being cleaned, counters being wiped down, and floors being washed, swept, you name it, it was being cleaned. Simon the cruise director was awesome. The best cruise director I have had on any of my prior cruises. The shows were spellbinding. The show 88 Keys was riverting. The casino was a lot of fun with a wide selection ...

My husband and I have cruised on Carnival 8 times and in the past we really enjoyed it. Before this last cruise we had a bad experience, this was before Covid. Because of the bad experience we chose not to cruise for awhile plus Covid happened. I felt with all the Covid shots we had received it was safe enough to cruise again. My husband has dementia and I wanted to take him on a cruise while ...

This was our first cruise -post Covid and our first on Carnival in 25 years. We chose it because Port Canaveral is only 20 miles from our home and because we had yet to visit the Turks and Caicos on a previous cruise. After sailing numerous times on Holland America and Royal Caribbean our expectations were low after reading previous reviews of Carnival Freedom. We booked an Ocean suite ...

Our recent trip on Carnival was one that I wish we never booked. The boat is older and the employee's are angry. The boat is boring and the Cruise director is not very creative. The activities were more for assisted living entertainment. The shows were very good but it you spend two days at sea and the entertainment is Trivia and Bingo. The pools are just tubs. You can't swim in them and there ...

I've been crusing since the mid 90, mostly with Carnival, NCL or RCCL. I've been on old ships, new ships, I was even on the Tropical when it was 50 years old, and I have never had a cruise like this. First let me say I'm not going to tell you everything yet because I'm still trying to give Carnival time to fix things, but each day without contact justs makes it worse. I don't know ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I purchased pix from one of the dinner night, and received a special offer with a butterfly cards which had expire date of 9/30/22 however when I went online the offer had already expired on 3/31/22. Didn't appreciate receiving invalid promo. The pictures were great if was hard to only pick one set, but they are a bit pricey and the special promos help the value but if they are invalid that is not ...

Went to amber cove and grand turk for spring break. If you go on cruises for the food this ship is definitely not for you! The buffet breakfast was just about the same everyday. Eggs were absolutely the worse eggs i have ever seen in my life. The trays with the eggs had atleast a half in of water on top of them. Previous trips on carnival were ok food wise but this one was different. Even ...

We're both 56 and have sailed 6 other cruise lines previously, the Mardi Gras was our first experience with Carnival. The other six are Princess, Disney, Celebrity, Holland America, NCL, and Royal Caribbean. Some thoughts and observations for those of you looking to sail Mardi Gras. EMBARKATION: Surprisingly smooth for the largest ship we've ever sailed, we heard 5500-5900 passengers ...
