Carnival Port Canaveral (Orlando) Cruise Reviews

Here is a screenshot of the listed open time for Guy's Burger Bar that they suddenly removed after I went back and forth with Guest Services and back and forth to Guy's Burger Bar when they stated on the app and Guest Services that they were open, but then was told by a crew member after waiting 10 minutes for him to address me that they were not open at that time.
Ministry of Magic (Atrium).
This is the entire buffet
Very small buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner

We wanted a cruise that was close to Port Canavaral because my sister lived near Orlando. We wanted to bring our family and this cruise offered affordable options, with balconies for 3 out of 4 staterooms we purchased. It also had two destinations we were interested in as Amber Cove and Grand Turk. The rooms and beds were clean and comfortable -our room attendant Ronald was incredibly friendly, ...

This was my 8th cruise and my 5th with Carnival. This was my husband’s 3rd cruise, all with Carnival. We sailed on June 11, 2022 out of Port Canaveral. If you don’t want to read all the details, I will start by saying this cruise was a huge disappointment and we regret booking this trip. I could actually cry thinking about the money wasted. Embarkation - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ One highlight of ...

I have been on over 40 cruises . The Mardi Gras is a fantastic ship. One of the 2 best I have been on. The most variety in dining one could ask for on any ship.. The upscale Restaurants were better than Royal Caribbean. The ship was very clean and the service was excellent throughout. Entertainment was adequate but not quite as good as Royal Caribbean. They would do well to adopt the large ship ...

Been on 12 cruise though this ship might be to big. I was wrong easy to figure out. I’m 59yrs old and got around quite easily. Staff was awesome very friendly. Take your time and walk the ship lots to do and see on board. Will definitely do this cruise again. Getting off and on boat was easy. The shows were just like most shows, very entertaining. Lots of restaurants with many food options. Tried ...

Good ship for a quick 4 day getaway. Room wasn't quite clean and had to get steward to come in and dust and clean a bit. Food was good but not as good as the last cruise in December on the Valor. Really have no major complaint except for the loud next door neighbors. The first night the neighbors were obnoxiously loud and I finally fell asleep sometime after 3 am. The 2nd night called ...

For being Carnival's newest flagship with all the bells and whistles, I was expecting more. Unfortunately, my family and I ended our trip feeling less than impressed. If I had one word to describe my cruise, the word I would use is: eh. From the horrible embarkation process which took two hours in the pouring rain, we had a feeling this was a sign of the times to come. Embarkation: I've ...

A different approach to cruising

This was my 23rd cruise, with Carnival being a third of those. I haven't cruised with Carnival in about 5 years and the concept of cruising that Mardi Gras presents is a welcome change (mostly). Embarkation went fairly smooth in Carnival's newest terminal at Port Canaveral. Usual wait times, about an hour overall from dropping bags to stepping on board. Not bad for these days of Covid. Tip: ...

Not clean.

First let me say that this review is basically about the cleanliness of eating areas. I just went on Celebrity in November and I’m comparing it to that which I thought was excellent. Celebrity had staff waiting with hand sanitizer in all eating locations. No guest were allowed to touch anything to keep things sterile. I will also say that in my November sailing they were at 50% capacity. I found ...

This 5.21.22 cruise was super crowded. The Elevators were a covid trap, so small for a ship that big. The rooms/bathroom were very small. Napkins were like Auto repair rags. Lido deck too small for 6000 passengers food at buffet was awful. Not enough Hand sanitizer stations for so many people. The Pools were very small for the ship size. I didn't sleep right every night. The pillows were worst ...
