Tale of two cruises, most was fantastically wonderful, some was fantastically disappointing.

This cruise was an anniversary gift from my wife, our fourth cruise together, all aboard Carnival Cruise Lines, and all leaving from Galveston, Texas. She chose this cruise because neither of us had ever been to Key West or the Bahamas so the destinations were high on our priority list. They cancelled the Key West stop a few weeks before we left. I know it wasn't Carnival's fault, but it wasn't ...

This was the worst Carnival cruise I have been on. The embarkation process was a little long, but I think that is the same for most cruises. Once on board, everything seemed to be perfect. We put our belongings away and headed to the muster station for the safety drill. We then changed into swimsuits and headed to the pool, ready for a cocktail and some R&R. When we ordered our drinks, we were ...

We cruised on the Vista in 2019 and had an extended aft cabin and loved it. This time we booked a spa cabin on 14 since the afts were booked.. Occupancy was 40-50% and you could feel the difference. There were no lines and getting on and off the ship was a breeze. We made our appointment at CVS and did the one hour antigen test, screen shot it and printed it. We did early dining and always ...

AMAZING cruise…. Ship was clean and cleaned continuously. Food very acceptable… steakhouse so good we ate there twice. Stayed on deck 11 in spa suite… that’s the ONE thing, but first with the positive. The Carnival Vista Rock Band absolutely a must see… we spent lots of time listening and dancing… Amazing group. The Country duo where really great also we split our time and made as many ...

Focusing on Covid precautions, Diamond/Platinum check in, and a little other stuff

This was a test cruise for Covid-19 cruising. Masks were definitely worn by everyone, they really check your physical vaccine card, and the Covid test verification for your name to match your passport, vaccine card, and test. We knew they weren’t going to have priority boarding, but they easily could have, at least for Diamond level, there were only 23 of us and some were already on board. ...

I like the Carnival cruise line and have cruised with them before. Most of the cruises have been just amazing, however, this one was really different. Besides all of the COVID testing etc. that has to be done, the ship was sailing at 50% capacity. There were no lines! Getting on and off were easy, the new way to do the safety briefing was so much better, you go to your muster station and they ...

We joined our friends on this cruise and booked over a year in advance during the pandemic not knowing if we will ever go. It was very relaxing with only approximately 50% capacity. No long lines and not crowded. Quick to get Guy's Burgers or Blue Iguana. The only hassle was getting tested in advance. Testing availability was limited and they changed it to 2-days prior. Since we have to ...

Great overall experience. Kyndall Fire was an awesome cruise director and kept things fun. Fun was Carnival typical. Staff on the ship was friendliest and most welcoming of any cruise I have been on - they went out of their way to engage and say hi, etc. Room was well kept. Servers in main dining room very efficient and attentive. Entertainment was good. Loved Allure of the Seas electric ...

All of the important parts of this cruise were great: embarkation and debarkation were fast and easy, weather was hot and mostly sunny, all the ports were open, the food was nice as always, and the service was excellent. We had an aft balcony cabin (#7465 - worth the small added cost for the extra space) and our steward was attentive and genuinely friendly. The new shows are wonderful, the double ...
