Somewhat disappointing


We chose this cruise because it went to two of our favorite ports: Grand Cayman and Cozumel. This was our third cruise, second time on Carnival. The first Carnival cruise was 5 1/2 years ago, to the Southern ...

5 day cruise

We chose this cruise for the destinations. We flew into Tampa. I highly recommend using Carnival's shuttle service. It's reasonable and drops you off right at the port. Tampa's port was easy to get through in a ...

Would have been Paradise except for the food.

We chose this cruise because of a great experience we had on a CARNIVAL cruise many years ago and because of the price. We have been on several cruises; some on Mega Ships and some on smaller Ships. We prefer ...

Never wowed but never dissapointed

We are an engaged couple, 29 and 27 years old for reference. We got on the ship very easily, and were told that our room was already all set up and waiting for us, since we were 'guaranteed' sailors on the bottom ...

Not the Best

This was our 4th cruise with Carnival and I would have to say that it was our least favorite out of all of them. We made the best of it and still had a good time, but we noticed a lot of differences between this ...

Budget Cruise

Just returned from a 5 day 2 stop cruise. I referred to this cruise as the "Walmart" cruise, totally no frills. The boat was super clean. The food was good and all service was very good. That's about it for the ...

Just Average

This was a cruise for my 25th wedding anniversary but Carnival did nothing special. Our 20th was on The Safire Princess (Alaska) and they went all out decorating our room and giving us a bottle of champagne so we ...

We drove down to Tampa on Friday, July 24th and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Tampa I-75 & Bruce B. Downs. Great hotel but bed was firm as a rock. Drove to the Port where we paid for the $75 parking pass ...

An honest review

I have sailed Carnival on a few occasions. The following is what to expect on the Paradise. Embarkation: Tampa has valet parking. A nice option we took advantage of for $20.00 more. We were in the grand suite so we ...

We chose this cruise because it was short, and only a 2 hour drive from our home. We had an easy commute. On Southern California freeways, this was a pleasant surprise. We arrived early so we could get a parking ...
