Me and my fiance had an absolute blast on this trip! I wasn't satisfied with the service on the outside main decks at all with the exception of the bar by the 24 hour pizza! But then we found ALCHEMY BAR near the Hollywood NightClub where ... Read more

We had a fantastic time on our cruise! I was a bit worried after reading so many negative reviews about the ship, but please be assured that this is a wonderful ship and I would gladly cruise again on this exact same boat. The boat was ... 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

Chose this itinerary (Half Moon Cay-St. Thomas-San Juan-Grand Turk) because these were all new destinations for us and it left out of our hometown: Miami, FL. PROS: Service was outstanding; ship was spotless all week; cabin ... Read more

I was not going to take Carnival Cruise to Havana. But due to late planning we had to choose Carnival or not go at all. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of service. The service from the customer service over the phone to ... Read more

For those who say: "Anything but Carnival", they should have been with us the week of July 8 on this ship and itinerary. The service, food, and entertainment were superb. We have been on over 85 cruises and have done this ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on the Carnival Triumph for our first cruise experience, but I had some hesitations at first because I had read so many bad reviews about the ship. DO NOT LISTEN TO PICKY VACATIONERS! The Triumph itself, as well as ... Read more

I can't say enough good things about the cruise my DH and I took to celebrate our 25th anniversary on the Carnival Pride. From the accommodations, to the friendly crew, to the Carnival Excursions, the entire experience was absolutely ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze with the Faster to the Fun option. We were some of the first to get on board and our luggage was there and our room was ready. Others had to wait for hours dragging their carry on bags with them everywhere. The ... Read more

My husband and I cruised out of Baltimore on the Pride to Bermuda on July 2nd. This was our second time on this ship, but it previously hadn't had the 2.0 upgrades. The ship has changed some, but most of the Renaissance decor is the same. ... Read more

We chose to do an 8 day southern Caribbean cruise with Carnival for our honeymoon because you get the best of both worlds - a luxurious, relaxing beach vacation paired with the fun and excitement of being on a cruise ship. Both embarkation ... 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

Fort Lauderdale: - I flew in the day before and stayed at the riverside hotel close to downtown (about 7 miles from the port, 5 miles from the airport, and 2 miles from the beach). The city day I used for lunch and exploration. When ... Read more

Everything was done so well. Staff was very nice and helpful. Loved our room (8280). Balcony too hot usually. The ship was always hopping and there was always good food. Alvardo in the dining room was so professional and nice. Our room ... Read more

So, the brand new ship in Carnival's line lived up to its billing. Our cruise we had 4,800 people, but you never really felt that way as the ship is large enough to disperse crowds all over the place. We had balcony room 2381, which was ... Read more

We chose the Ecstasy due to it embarking in Charleston, where we live. Getting on the ship was fast and easy. We had stateroom E244, which is at the back of the ship. The balcony was worth the extra dollars. It was spacious with 1 straight ... Read more

We had an amazing time! I didn't know what to expect. We were first time cruisers. We had mixed reviews from our friends about cruises. But this was Fantastic! We used EZ Cruise Parking in Galveston. You get a 20$ discount if you walk to ... Read more

This was our first cruise and did not know what to expect. However, we had a great crew and a great time on the Carnival Splendor! We would definitely go on the ship again. We had a smooth embarkation and disembarkation process. While on ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise on Carnival and to be honest, we were thinking about looking elsewhere after the experience of our 2016 cruise on the Fascination -- which was saved only by the amazing ports we visited. But after the experience ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the dates we were available to travel as well as the port convenience. We were highly disappointed in the food and entertainment. The comedians were terrible and simply vulgar. The piano bar pianist was ... Read more
