We have had 7 cruises cancelled and frankly I thought this one would be also. I booked this cruise as I was excited about going to Bimini; what a letdown. They need to develop their tourism as there isn't anything to see or do there except go to the beach. It looked like a flat "ribbon of land" island that was mostly residential and the houses looked nice and new. We walked down to the Hilton ...

The service was brilliant, entertainment was good, ship was okay, but the destinations were subpar.

This was my 7th cruise on Carnival. Although the Carnival Magic was not a bad ship, the layout was strange compared to all the others I've been on and not to my liking; most of the hot tubs were cold, the ones on the Serenity deck were always full and this was on a cruise only 70% full. The main pool was small and seemed out of place. On a positive note, it had lots for kids to do and also had ...

My wife and I selected this cruise for the price and to return to cruising even with COVID. We completed COVID testing at a CVS. Receiving our negative test, a sigh of relief...lets go cruising. Our cabin was on Lido Deck, interior. Boarding was very quick (from start to sitting waiting to board) was about 15 minutes. There were many protocols in place but none that affected our cruise. We took ...

I’d like to start off by saying how impressed I was with this ship and the staff. Granted, they were sailing at around 50% capacity making it very spacious everywhere, but the crew were more helpful than any other main cruise lines I’ve been on. Boarding from parking to sitting at a bar with my first glass of champers took 1.5 hours (this included completing the muster drill and a quick spa ...

We disembarked Mardi Gras on Saturday after a B2B – cruise number 45 for us the way we count them (we count B2B’s as a single cruise). The cruise can be summarized in one word: Wow! This is not your father’s (or grandfather’s) Carnival – it’s way better! We liked it so much that we are returning in December for another B2B! Embarkation was easy, even with the additional vaccination and ...

We flew from Georgetown, KY then rode shuttle to Cocoa Beach for our night-before cruise stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites. We really enjoyed the hotel and the staff. It is located about a 15-minute drive to the port terminal. That night, my wife's cousin took us to Gator's Seafood for dinner. It was excellent! The next morning, our shuttle from the hotel arrived at 10am and took us to the port ...

I always enjoy going on Carnival Cruise Line. I've been crusing for years, but I was disappointed that we didn't go to Bimini. Captain said bad weather but it was only raining. Guests were very disappointed and they only gave us a $15.96 credit . What an insult! The captain's english language was poor , we couldn't understand him when he made announcements. Nassau is looking pretty ruff, but they ...

My previous review was on the second ever cruise taken by the Mardi Gras. We took it again 5 weeks later and offer this updated information Embarkation - instead of taking nearly 90 min. to get on the ship this time was less than 34 min. If you show up before your assigned 30 minute window , you won't be able to even enter the terminal! If you do manage to sneak in, there's a second ...

Overall outstanding ship with lots of activities, very few public areas for lounging inside and will probably be crowded when at full capacity. We were about 58% full and the ship never felt crowded at all. Something to think about here... the listed capacity is 6500 passengers (that's with more than 2 people in many staterooms, Max capacity), while the Royal Caribbean Oasis class can carry 6700 ...
