Overall- very impressed by Carnival- even though this line would not have been my first choice since I don't have kids and don't need anything kid-friendly. However, we joined another couple who did have kids... so that dictated the ship ... Read more

It's about time to retire this ship. It's old, dirty and has very little to offer. Pictures are always better then reality 9 times out of 10. So disappointed by the ship. Great family trip, can't even imagine the time we would have had on ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise and probably the best ever. Every staff member bent over backwards to make our trip great! Even if we where just passing them in the hallway. The Chef's table was easily the best meal we've ever had. When the ... Read more

Why we booked this trip: I liked the initial itinerary, but I ultimately choose this time due to friends/family members vacations schedules. It was the perfect time for everyone to meet up. We had four different groups meeting up: the ... Read more

With Vista being the new, cool boat we were expecting more of a grand experience. The ship itself is horrible, terrible layout, hard to get around with no main thoroughfare from front to back of ship. Many reviews say the employees ... Read more

We have taken a number of other Carnival cruises and have been willing to accept some concession in service in return for reduced cruise fees. However, our cruise on the Carnival Glory was a disappointment. I am not certain if this is a ... Read more

So to say that I wasted my hard earned money is an understatement. The rooms are not upgraded in the least, our room had no air for the first 2 days. I literally saw no difference between this cruise and other 20 + years cruise ships ... Read more
