My husband and I have done many cruises and this was our third carnival cruise. The food was awful and cold breakfast and dinner regardless of eating at the tiny buffet or dining room. It seemed like there wasn't enough crew to take care of the guests on board. The ladies room on the pool deck only had two stalls and one was broken from the moment we got on board. The pool was rusted and not ...

We planned a 5 day trip to Disney and decided to take a cruise. Family of 5. My husband 40, myself 40, daughter 19, son 14, and youngest daughter 8. I had no preconceived thoughts. My first cruise. I would have rather just take the money spent on this cause and booked a week long vacation at Destin, FL. The room was spacious and it accommodated us just fine. We really enjoyed our private balcony. ...

We are experienced cruisers who generally avoid Carnival, but in this case found a price that was tough to beat and a schedule that worked perfectly. Despite boarding the ship with a questionable attitude, we found ourselves having fun more often than not. The Pros: 1. Our oceanview cabin was surprisingly attractive, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was perfectly functionable, if a ...

I chose this cruise because it had decent reviews and a very good price, however, I would have pay more, knowing what I know now. The ship is small, that' okay, but rusted, badly painted,inside and out. I could hear the upper level while trying to sleep, jumping and people screaming in the halls. When I did try to take a nap, a Very loud noise outside my window, someone sanding! I opened the ...

This was a cruise with my elderly mother, teen daughter, and her friend. I've been on about 12 cruises including NCL, HAL, Carnival, RC, and Celebrity. Embarkation was great, we walked on around 11:00 almost without stopping. Thanks Carnival! Our inside room for three on U122 was fine. Smallish but no major issues. Everything was clean and in good working order. Food overall was just OK, ...

I will start by saying we have cruised 5 different cruise lines, this was our first Carnival cruise. Yes we have heard a lot of negatives so we were prepared for the worst! However I must say the Elation is in very nice condition, refurbished and quite nicely done. The cabins are plain, yet served there purpose. Staff was nice, however the ship is understaffed and service suffered. Food was much ...

NEVER AGAIN.

We chose this cruise for what was supposed to be a honeymoon. NEVER again will we cruise with carnival. We met ONE nice bartender on this ship. The food was crappy as well as the people serving it. They were rude and acted like they hated their jobs. This line allows underaged kids to get plastered and start arguments with adults. When security is called, "it doesn't matter that they are underage ...

It was my mother's 50th birthday cruise, we had a group of approx. 34 ppl. Paulvic and Yuseph were amazing at keeping our room looking spotless. The staff was constantly cleaning so I feel like it was a sanitary environment. They even cleaned the pools nightly. My children loved camp and the staff there made me feel comfortable leaving my children with them. If a large group use walkie talkies, it ...

I choose this cruise cause I was looking for specific dates, nothing more. But the experience was awful. I will never ever repeat at lease this cruise again. The icecream here sucks, and what can I say about milkshakes, they are $4.95 and it is the worse I ever tried before, the girl from the musical coffe is not nice at all neither the people from the bars. Nicest people in the ship are the ones ...

We chose this cruise because we heard great things about Carnival and their ships. It started off great because we got on the shift fast and got our room before everyone since we had a suite. After getting to the room we went to get a soda because we had the soda package. IT was very crowded and took nearly 15 minutes to get a soda. We were not use to having to go to the bar for sodas, since we ...
