Beautiful ship, but room for improvement in several areas

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Venezia

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

My wife and I and my parents just returned from a 10-day Cruise on Carnival Venezia, leaving from NYC to the Caribbean. The cruise ship docks at Manhattan Cruise Terminal. We live in upstate NY, about 6 hours away. With 4 people, it’s cheaper to drive than fly. We booked 2 rooms in Fairfield Inn North Bergen. They had a Cruise Package that would let us park the car at the hotel for 10 days ...

This ship should be turned into a reef

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Carnival Freedom

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Took this ship over to Barcelona and back to Port Canaveral for the "replace the whale tale" transatlantic cruises. Wow, what a mistake! First mistake was not knowing that you don't take a cruise on a ship that's going into or out of dry dock because there will be contractors working on various aspects of the ship all during the cruise. Fortunately, we weren't bothered by this in our cabin ...

Too many issues

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Carnival Freedom

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This was our third Transatlantic cruise with Carnival and by far the worst. If this had been our first Carnival cruise we'd never set foot again on a Carnival ship. The cruise got off to the worst possible start and never really recovered to an acceptable level. It started on a sour note with Embarkation and finished on a sour note with Disembarkation, the bit inbetween was only slightly ...

Worst of the Carnival Ships

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Carnival Pride

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The menu was terrible. Repeat dishes on multiple nights. Service was terrible. Had to ask cabin steward to clean mirrors not cleaned between cruises. Found bed last night with comforter pulled up and straightened but bed had not actually been made up. Had a tremendously rude head server in the dining room. Quote when she first came to the table we asked how are you she said "extremely busy" ...

Dirty Ship food lacking

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Carnival Freedom

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I am surprised by how bad the food is and the ship is dirty. The staff are good but seemed to be trained not to give bigger than a child serving for the Buffett. The prime rib a few nights ago turned out to be a few bites of beef. They cut such small bite size pieces I felt bad for the carver. Awful. Just ruined a good prime rib why bother?? This will be my last cruise on Carnival. I really used ...

Europe Cruise

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Carnival Pride

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise due to itinerary. Boarding the ship in Rome was seamless and we were on board really quickly. Stateroom: Our first impression it was dated but functional however when we returned later that night to discover it was freezing cold and was told while there is a thermostat on the wall it doesn’t work and we had no control over the room temperature! I was freezing and ...

Overall, this cruise had it's Pros and Cons The pro's included an excellent specialty steakhouse restaurant called Farenheight 555. Of course Guy's Hamburgers are always good. Our room attendant was excellent, and most of the staff were very friendly. We also enjoyed some trivia games and "Deal or No Deal." The Fitness center was the finest I have ever sceen on a Cruise ship. Overall the ship ...

Very poor quality food, understaffed and no hygiene. Understaffed.

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Carnival Pride

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Unfortunately food has to be great, with most days, 3 meals a day on board they have to get it right. Carnival Pride, Iceland Trip, August 20, 2023, have failed miserably. This is our 9th Carnival cruise, another booked for December and our 18th cruise overall. We have not encountered worse food, and guests everywhere complaining. Doesn’t seem to matter what food it is, complaints ...

Stay away

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Venezia

Bellac32_
2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

The only good thing about this trip was our room attendant! He was on it and got everything that we needed. But everything else sucked! All I can say is stay away from this ship. Very unorganized and confusing! Staff was rude. Dinners were awful! Buffet was cafeteria food! If you had a question you couldn't get it answered! Getting off the ship was a nightmare! I will never go on carnival again! ...

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Carnival Pride

This was our first time on a Carnival cruise -and it was our last time. Never again. We have been on many other cruises. This one had no decent shows, overpriced excursions that were a complete waste of time and money, and everything was so unorganized! The photos taken by the professional photographers were very poor quality and extremely dark. When we got on the ship I went to book an ...
