Very Friendly Crew, Great Amenities, but this ship needs to be renamed the Carnival Slamorama

Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

We have cruised on many different Carnival ships over the past few years and have a broad range of experiences with different cabin classes and the amenities and layouts of both their older and newer ships. We stayed in a balcony cabin this time around and as Gold VIFP members, got the almost zero perks our class of membership gets. After sailing 50 nights over the last few years, we still have 25 ...

The only downside was the food in the main dining room was subpar. I last cruise pre-Covid in 2019 and the horizon in the food was much better almost identical layout to the panorama but the food in the panorama dining room was not good. Food and other venues was good and plentiful overall it was a very nice experience the only exception was going to the main dining room which of course you look ...

No so much of a 'miracle'

Chose this cruise because of the cost. Guess you get what you pay for. Stayed in balcony Cabin #8241. While the cabin was the expected size, found the TV extra small, and a lack of channels to watch. Half of channels were Carnival oriented. No good movies, and no news channels. Bathroom shower floor very slippery and no grab bars provided in the shower, which made taking a shower ...

I have been sailing with Carnival for years now just made Platinum.The last two cruise’s have been very disappointing. The food is horrible and not even free anymore if you want to eat something decent you have to pay extra. Room service cost now and the menu sucks they have you paying for pizza you can get free up stairs. Entertainment during the day was only trivia all day and music on lido ...

Background: The Carnival Radiance is a party ship. Having cruised in the past with Celebrity, NCL, and Carnival. I’ve done the 3 day weekend booze cruise to Ensenada on Inspiration, I knew what I was getting myself into. I took this trip with my 4 friends to celebrate our birthdays. We go to college in California and thought this weekend trip would be perfect (and more affordable than Vegas). We ...

The Gap between Carnival and Princess

We took three Princess cruises in the last 9 months. While all these trips were enjoyable, we didn’t feel the current service level on Princess is as good as what we experienced before Covid epidemic. Since Princess is on the decline and our last Carnival cruise was almost three years ago, we were wondering what has been happening to the previous service gap between Carnival and Princess? Here is ...

Dress code

I'm ok with Carnival, it's low cost, food is fine the staff have always been wonderful. Yeah the lack of classy types is a bit annoying, poeple bunping into you, feet up on the furniture, children running in the halls late hours. All I ask is that when the ship designates a dining room dress code they enforce it!! We like to dress for the dining experience yet look around and t-shirts, flip flops, ...

Great Cruise but some room issues

This was my first time on the Mexican Riviera Itinerary and sailing out of Long Beach. The embarkation process was overall very smooth, there were lines for each boarding time, and it progressed smoothly. Once onboard, the ship was great. The atrium is really pretty with the holographic center, but it was kind of underwhelming too compared to the older ships with the extravagant atriums. The ...

Boarding took about 2 hours from arriving at the terminal to entering our stateroom. Though organized boarding was slow. Even though I completed “VERIFLY ”, I had to produce all the documentation again at check in. I thought VERIFLY was about speeding up check in?? First impression of the Panorama was a modern color palette that still had fun elements. Not formal but still had a wow factor. ...

Good for short local cruise, you get what you pay for

My family has been through a lot the past 18 months and hadn’t been on vacation together since June of 2020. When the opportunity for a short affordable local trip caught my eye, I couldn’t resist. Our prior cruises and points of comparison were on the Norwegian Pearl and the MS Westerdam. We had a great time (two adults, two teens) on Radiance for four nights. We had two ocean view cabins on ...
