My Stateroom Steward Aris was the best. As was the people he worked with always with a smile and a greeting. The ship was clean and well laid out. The entertainment was the best the singers and dancers were the best and when you seen ...

Our first Carnival cruise that my TA set up for us almost 2 years ago. We had the Grand Suite, which was more than we ever imagined! The service was excellent and always courteous. The foods and entertainment especially Polaris I could listen for hours was beautiful! Chef's Table was outstanding and totally worth it. Veterans appreciation and Veterans Tea gatherings was a nice touch too. Loved my ...

We went on this Cruise because it was the itinerary we wanted for the Panama canal but we will never go on carnival again! We will be sticking to Royal Caribbean. The shore excursions were great but pretty much anything having to do with onboard sucked! The shows were so loud I couldn't stay for any of them, the food was not good, I ordered breakfast to my room every morning with extra cereal ...

We wanted to go on a Panama Canal cruise leaving the west coast and traveling east. We were not disappointed. The ship was beautiful and extremely clean. Seems like someone was always cleaning and polishing. Thankfully even the window were cleaned several times on this journey. That has always been my number one complaint. Well this time those windows were spotless. They must have cleaned them ...

We have been on other Carnival Caribbean cruises, usually 7 day or short 4 day cruises. We chose this cruise because it was going through the Panama Canal in August. This is unusual, but they were repositioning the ship from Tampa to Australia. We went from Tampa to Long Beach, CA. We really enjoyed the ship. Though it has over 2000 people, we never experienced a crowd. The layout was easy. The ...

I just got back from the 4/27 sailing on the Carnival Legend. I went as a single parent with my 16-year-old son. This was my 12th carnival trip with the VIP benefits. It has been years since I went just with my son usually family or friends go along. My son was too busy with the teen club that I might as well have gone on the ship by myself. I know to bring along a friend next time. This was our ...

Background Information This was by 6th cruise (3rd Carnival, last one was in 1995). This was also the first time I had been involved in Cruise Critic Roll Calls first (what a great addition) and the first time I travelled with only a friend (no family this time). I loved the itinerary of this ship - 2 days at sea, Panama, Costa Rica, day at sea, Belize, day at sea. I happen to be a big fan of ...

We flew down to Fort Lauderdale the day we cruise to a very wet day, it seem to rain all day. This is the last time I will fly down the day of the cruise. By the time we got to the ship, I was done. There was a weather warning "BIG SNOW STORM" and it had me worried that our flight would be cancelled. Well I did not get any sleep and by the time I did sleep I was up almost 40 hours. It is a good ...
