This was a short four-day cruise to Catalina Island and Ensenada Mexico. Boarding in Long Beach was easy as usual, love the way that platinum and diamond guests have a special building to check-in. Inside state room U85 was ready when ... Read more

One of the reasons I booked a cruise from Baltimore was to "sail" down the Chesapeake Bay but since this cruise was delayed by 7 hours, it was dark when that part of the cruise finally happened. I leave on the West Coast now ... Read more

Even though we had done this itinerary before, it was one we were ready to do again-with a couple of days in Barbados! Because we embarked in Barbados, it was very easy. Carnival was ready for the couple of hundred people who were ... Read more

This was my 44th cruise and 12th on CCL. All I wanted was to go to the beach and this was the perfect itinerary hitting Nassau, Half Moon Cay, Amber Cove and Grand Turk. We flew in the day before and stayed at the Renaissance Marriott ... Read more

The shop was very old and outdated. There wasn't much to do with kids except the kids club and pool. The service was great but one of the staff members lost my kids sail and sign card. The food was average nothing to exciting. The arcade ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience one and decide if we would like to do it again. Additionally, we got a good deal through Costco's Travel Service. My wife and I loved it and, despite a few negative reviews that some ... Read more

We have sailed on other cruise liners in the past but prefer Carnival, in saying this we much prefer the Spirit to the Legend as it seems to have more atmosphere & is more of - as the ship says - a fun ship & there a far more ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to cruise from Port Canaveral and the RCCL ship did not have balcony rooms only suites. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smooth since we purchased the FTTF package which is well worth the ... Read more

This cruise for us and several passengers we spoke with was below average. Boarding was reasonably smooth but disembarkation was chaotic and very uncomfortable for older customers and families with small children. Having cruised with ... Read more

I've sailed "Paradise" many, many times, but sadly, the cruise has gone down hill since the last time I sailed her. Entertainment, in general, and big shows in particular, have hit rock bottom for me. Way too loud, and with ... Read more

The trip was great, the service was excellent. There were a few items that were brought to my eye. Tables in the on deck aft quarter, always felt sticky to my touch. Crumbs and dried up Ketchup was noted on more than one occasion. (always ... Read more

Carnival had a cheaper cruise to the ports than Royal Caribbean this time. I was very disappointed in the food. We spent most of our time eating at Guy's Burger Joint. We had a balcony and the windows and doors was so filthy that it was ... Read more

After 14 sailings over three years we decided to try a Carnival cruise to see why so many people say they love Carnival Cruises. After this cruise it will be difficult to find my wife and me on another Carnival cruise. The embarkation went ... Read more

We flew into San Juan a couple of days early for our Southern Caribbean cruise and stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott, Isla Verde because we wanted to stay on the beach. The room was very nice with a view of the beach. The beach area ... Read more

i would advise against purchasing the soda package as u will not be given anything but canned warm soda. There are no soda fountains on the ship and they do not cool the cans in advance . It was awful to say the least. All the ships we ... Read more
