Misleading information on their website was the very start, I should have cancelled then! It was the most ridiculous waste of money that I can remember! They make it seem like so much is included with Green Check Marks saying included, ... Read more

I choose this cruise for the easy access from my home, the destinations and the price. Both embarkation and debarkation were smooth. I checked my luggage for debarkation and should have just carried it myself. Our cabin steward, Olvin was ... Read more

We chose the Sensation because of the itinerary and the value. The three ports of call were beautiful. The only negative I have, and I believe this to be the case with most all ships, is the limited amount of time we were able to spend in ... Read more

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 reasonable amount of time. ... Read more

We sailed on the Breeze because it leaves from Galveston and is an easy drive for us. We parked right across from the terminal and that was a great choice. Embarkation had a very "third world airport" feel from the curb, but ... Read more

We chose this ship for our 30th anniversary. We had an aft balcony which was fabulous, I could sit out there all day. Only bad thing is we didn't get much sun because the floor above us came out past our balcony. If you want more sun go to ... Read more

Love, love the Serenity deck. I just wish there were more umbrellas. There was adequate attention from the bar staff and the hot tubs were great. Never had any trouble with people trying to have their kids there as I've heard before. ... Read more

We have been on 30 cruises over 4 different lines and are now Platinum on Carnival. We booked this in spite of the shaky reviews as we got a great deal on our annual kids free cruise. Embarkation took 15 minutes, as easy as it can ... Read more

We picked this 8 day on the Splendor because of the itinerary. Only San Juan was a repeat for us. At first all I saw were complaints about the decor. Really, you pick a cruise based on the decor of the ship? Yeah, it's pink all right. ... Read more

I read horrible comments about embarkation & disembarkation. We did not have the faster to fun pass and have no complaint about the process. We arrived earlier then our check in time of 2-2:30. We arrived at 1 and were on the ship with ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise. So we didn't know what to expect, outside of friends and family who have cruised before telling us...they guarantee it won't be our last cruise. They were so right. The staff was great. Super friendly, ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the dates, balcony and price. It was easy getting on and off the boat. We could bring a 12-pack of soda and two bottles of wine which helped to have in the room. Room service was minimal. We ordered two ... Read more
