This was my fifth Carnival cruise. I chose this cruise for the 3 days in port in Bermuda, which was the only port and a bucket list destination for me. We booked one year in advance. About 2 months before departure, Carnival started sending out "change of itinerary" messages. I received 6 change notices, the last one as we were departing for the port. The final result was that we ended up with about one and a half total days in Bermuda, not three. No explanation for the change was given, and no compensation was offered except for a refund of some port fees that we were owed, obviously because we were not in port. Instead, we were out sailing around in a circle to the east of Bermuda. Other than this major disappointment, the cruise was the typical Carnival experience. The food and service was O K, not great. One comedian was very funny, the other one not so much. The cruise director Deon was wonderful. The highlight of the whole cruise, other than the wonderful destination, was the ease and speed of getting on and off of the ship. Bermuda is by far the most beautiful port I've cruised to. There are many stunning beaches, lovely homes, attractions like the Crystal Caves and the Aquarium and Zoo, shopping in Hamilton, and historical attractions like forts, lighthouses, and St. George which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Bermuda has inexpensive and efficient public transportation, by bus and ferry, to all parts of the island. Everything was clean and well-run. Everyone we talked with was helpful and polite, and Bermudians are so willing to guide you and tell you all about their wonderful island. They are obviously very proud of this exceptional place and rightfully so. I am already planning to return to Bermuda, this time on an airplane. I never expected to have the port time shortened (except in the event of a hurricane), and that event has made me re-evaluate the whole cruise experience. All of the people I spoke with on the ship were disappointed that our time was cut short. We all paid for 3 days in Bermuda as offered by Carnival, and that is not what we got. We also didn't even get the courtesy of an explanation from Carnival. Read Less

Never been there before and the ship was suppose to be docked for 3 days ,. carnival estascy , cabin was noise from engines , away from couples we were traveling with ,not what we had ask for . Dining was also not what we requested due to many of party needing to have early dining we had to have it changed to anytime dining , food was most of the time prepared very good ,a few times orders were wrong or cold . Entertaiment was very good the shows are very good in the theater , activities were not as many this time as have been on other ships , i applaud the celebration for veteran days that the estascy did i am a veteran and i enjoyed it !!! Service did their best to make everyone feel at ease on a rocking ship due to rough seas and weather.the port of bermuda we had to leave a day early . For fear of wind . Bermuda was a little boring . Really feel very disappointed this cruise .but we will be cruising again!!!!!! Read Less
