Having cruised multiple times on Royal C, Disney, and Celebrity we were accustomed to a certain level of service and quality. We chose this cruise solely on the fact the itinerary worked with everyone in our travel ...

Very Crowded, at all times

I went with two members of my family on this cruise near the end of August 2019. I'm late writing this review, but after a few months of thinking about our vacation, one thing became glaringly obvious: this ship is ...

The ship is nice. Crew members are very nice and pleasant. Cabin was well maintained. We have a clog in the washing sink and it was fixed quickly after reporting to the staff. Dinning and activities all met ...

Think twice before booking

I've been cruising for 40 years, starting in 1978 on the emerald seas. I've taken over 40 cruises and am a gold carnival member. We took advantage of the many hotels that offer a park and cruise program where you ...

Not Proud of the Pride

Chose this cruise because the port is 20 minutes from home. Been on many cruises and this was the 3rd time on the pride. It will be our last. The ship needs to be placed in dry dock for a complete refurbish. ...

NEVER AGAIN CARNIVAL-1st and worst cruise I've ever been on

My sister cruised aboard the Carnival Magic from September 22-28. As this was our first cruise we were excited; however, Carnival stamped out that excitement real quick! Carnival does a real good job of letting ...

Rusty ship with lukewarm food and disinterested staff

This cruise line was chosen by a family member to have a family reunion. Checking onboard in Baltimore was quick and orderly. Once onboard we explored the ship while waiting for our cabin. Once in the cabin, the ...

Not up to Carnival standards, or is this their new standard.

Due to a continuing health issue, we chose this cruise’s Eastern Caribbean schedule. I will preference this by telling you I’m a Platinum level. So how can they screw up the embarkation and disembarkation. ...

Disappointed! Carnival’s standards and quality are sinking fast!

My husband and I chose Carnival for our honeymoon cruise. This was my 5th cruise with Carnival. After this one, we most likely won’t choose it again. The worst part was other passengers who were loud and ...

Very old and dirty ship

We booked a couple months in advanced but were still able to get a balcony room. The room was still very tiny. We were on the 5th floor and out floor smelled moldy. There were holes in our curtains and the deck was ...

First Cruise. Would Not Do Carnival Again.

If I could do two and a half stars, I would. We decided to do a cruise, which was not something we had ever done before. We decided on this ship because it was well priced, out of NYC (which is where we live), ...

I was limited both with time and finances so I tried to avoid 5 plane tickets to a European port and chose this ship and cruise line. This ship came out of NYC which from the start raised a red flag. The entire ...
