Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

We got off the Carnival Panorama at the Long Beach port after returning to our rooms for one additional night as one passenger was Covid 19 tested and the 4000 of us had to wait for that one passengers result. Thank god the one passenger was negative but it was nerve wracking for all of us. Needless to say it was chaos for the thousands of embarking passengers since they could not get on the ship ...

Cabins: We had two cabins 2371 & 2369. 2371 was a Cove balcony which was a first for us. I now prefer the cove balcony to a regular balcony. The cove balcony has more shade and privacy and less wind. Two doors down is a "service" area, but that is only used to load and unload luggage on embarkation and debarkation days so it is quiet. 2369 is an interior upper/lower room. The configuration ...

We chose this ship because it was a new ship with 3 hours by flight. We were very excited about the fun amenities. Getting on the ship was ok. Getting off the ship was horribly long and painful. We had hoped for entertainment similar to NCL, unfortunately, 80% is comedians. We visited the casino a few times, it the smoke was so bad it made it impossible to stay very long. I would ...

On so many levels we wanted this cruise to be epic because we had my MIL and my sister with us, both first time cruisers. Having cruised on Carnival and other Cruise lines in the past we didn't sway their judgement one way or the other. We wanted their honest unbiased opinions without our input to see if we were just being too judgmental and comparing our past cruises to this one. 1. ...

Avoid Rooms on Deck 11 below the fitness center

We stayed in Suite 11221, which was a beautiful comfortable room but I would advise people to avoid this particular cabin and the ones around it unless you don't want to get any sleep. This suite was directly under the weight room in the fitness center and meatheads above us were slamming and dropping heavy weights on the floor (our ceiling) from 8 am on. The fitness center was supposed to close ...

Nothing quite like new. But really I was not terribly impressed. The ship is very crowded with very little open space. Too many lines. Main showroom was simply too small and so you better be early. Rock revolution was outstanding. The other shows were well done but not well written. Food mediocre. Breakfast boring. Dining room food pretty good at dinner. We loved the staff. Best food onboard ...

Customer service not great

The ship itself is beautiful and modern and new and everything you would expect from a brand spanking new cruise ship, however, the customer service was sub par. Some of the people were super nice, however there were a lot of people on the ship who dont know basic customer service and this is sad. I'm usually a Royal Carribean cruiser and I've had a better experience there in general. I was rushed ...

Cabin: Balcony 9th deck starboard side towards the bow - great room, room for 4 with a pull down bed from the ceiling. View is amazing. The bike ride: fantastic, ...

Upon hearing that Carnival was beginning to leave from San Diego, my family decided it would be a great first cruise for 5 year old twins. We took a New Years cruise to fit in winter break. My husband and I have cruised previously (including on Carnival). Embarking was pretty quick and straightforward. We had one of the first embarkation times and made it fairly smoothly on. Getting off the ...
