This was the absolute worse for our entire group

We had 3 rooms, a group of 10. We have sailed with Royal Caribbean and decided to give Carnival a shot this year; what a mistake. Everyone who worked on this ship looked mad all the time, employees would run you ...

Carnival Breeze

This cruise was by far the most terrible as far as customer service. Dining room room experience was awful, had to wait 15mins for water, bread was very hard and food was not at all appetizing. Attitudes were ...

1st and Worst Cruise

I chose Carnival because of my wife’s past experiences with the Cruise Line. My expectations weren’t really that high, but hers were because of her past cruises. Firstly, this was our honeymoon, a vacation ...

Triggered ---- Would Not Recommend

Very unsatisfied with this cruise. As a frequent cruiser, and more specifically Carnival brand, this Cruise was far below expectations. As a part of the gold VIFP club, traveling on 7 Carnival ships in the past, ...

Go to another cruise line and save yourself some grief.

Food was terrible. At main restaurant, the food was worse than bad. Nothing to do on ship. It should be put down and scraped for humanity. Pool is a joke. Workers were nice as you would expect. Old ...

Engine was broken in port - so we ended up in Nassau

What a complete joke of a cruise. The ship is completely outdated, the food is subpar and not being able to actually go to your destination makes it a very frustrating experience. There was a billow of black smoke ...

Terrible Customer Service

I would never recommend this cruise or Carnival as a company. We went on a cruise for our honeymoon and paid around $1100 for an upgraded jr. suit. First of all, this ship looks like it came straight out of a 1980's ...

We went to get away and relax. The boarding process did not start until almost noon. We were on deck 7. You can tell the boat is not being maintained, it's rusting and dirty. The crew is lazy and they do as little ...
