Never again

Review for Carnival Celebration to Caribbean - Eastern

We just disembarked from the inaugural Caribbean cruise for the Carnival Celebration. This my first Carnival Cruise and it will likely be my last. Overall it was meh, and the food was awful and service was awful everywhere except two bars and the cabin staff. I’ll start with positives. The ship itself is physically nice as any new ship should be. The cabins are well designed and comfortable if ...

Too many short cuts

We have cruised with Carnival and Royal Caribbean for the last 18 cruises. We love cruising and consider it to be the best way to take a vacation and have a great time: however, that being said we will try to relay the happenings of what we called the worst cruise we have ever been on. Embarkation was a slow and confusing ordeal; it took the check in Person a good 10 minutes to finally get our ...

We were looking for a semi economic Thanksgiving trip to warm weather. We are driving distance from Galveston and the cruise fair was not a lot more than 5 plane tickets so we ended up taking our first cruise as a family. Overall the trip was okay. The first half day and full day at sea was very rough but we managed okay. At times some of the kids felt slightly nauseas and felt fine when we ...

This is my 6th cruise. I have previously cruised disney, RCL, and carnival. This is my honest opinion and I added in my personal helpful hints. :) This is my 2nd time on the Dream. It is beautiful ship and so easy to navigate. It was my daughter and I, 18 years old on this Thanksgiving cruise. 8 days with stops in Key West, Freeport, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau. Service: ***** AMAZING, ...

Carnival has lost a customer for now.

Just for a little background. I have sailed on the Carnival (numerous ships) as Gold Member. I have also sailed on NCL, Disney and RCL too. Pros: • Boarding. We arrived by parking offsite and taking shuttle to Port Canaveral. Getting on the ship was easy and only took a few minutes. • Room Steward: Our room attendant, Eladio was friendly, we rarely saw him, and did a great job refreshing ...

A few not so good things, but overall everything was good.

We decided on this cruise because it was going to Puerto Rico (one of our favorites) and we had never been to Grand Turk. We enjoyed our wait and housekeeping staff as they were all very friendly and helpful. Very much enjoyed the rock shows and the getaway island show. Comedians were so/so. Movie nights were nice with a great selection of movies. The one thing that really bothered us is they ...

We travelled with my daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren. This ship had everything on it to satisfy each of us. We had a blast. Several reviews commented on the size of the ship and the crowding. Our sailing was sold out, but to be honest we didn't see any problem with overcrowding. We always were able to find a lounge chair no problem. And except once we were always able to find a seat ...

Nice ship but some areas of concern with cleanliness

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose the Mardi Gras as it was a new ship (at the time of booking) and we had previous good sailings on Carnival we booked a year in advance and the ship had been sailing for about a year when our sailing occurred. Embarkation was chaotic but non eventful Lines moved quickly. We are huge fans of the new muster station check in. Be prepared There are so many people. Almost too ...

As I just got off this ship, I thought I'd leave the good, bad, and ugly. The good: getting on and off was a breeze at all ports, with the card they give you at your initial check-in, it's all you need. The food was very good and the service was outstanding. It's a big ship and there were a lot of people, but everyone was friendly and there are so many options, it is rare to not get a seat at ...

Way too many cruisers, not enough staff. Dining was ridiculous, drinks and food took forever to get or everything would be brought out at the same time. We usually love our wait staff, but this time just wants great. We were also in 3 different areas throughout our 5 nights so we didn’t keep the same wait staff like carnival usual does. The director was a little boring too, just didn’t seem very ...
