By far our favorite cruise.

This cruise was a big one for us. It was a celebration of two years of working hard to become debt free. That said, it was also the most expensive cruise we have ever taken. Let's start with the ship overall-- ...

Enjoyed the Eastern Caribbean ports San Juan, Turks, St Thomas, Amber Cove

We chose this cruise for the ports and mid winter break. The disembarkation at the ports was excellent. That could not be said for the end of the cruise at Port Canaveral. Apparently there were issues with ...

Great crew but very average ship

One of the reasons we selected this ship was that it had recently been updated and we liked the itinerary. Have absolutely no complaints about any of the crew. The two reasons we gave it the average rating was the ...

The Carnival Magic was NOT that Magical!

First and foremost let me say that Carnival has a automatic 18% tipping system built in that you can dispute at guest services but is very hard to do. Here is the issue I have with it. I may be traditional but in my ...
