This was indeed a fun trip and the crew was amazing. Our grandkids had a great time. On the other hand, for the number of people, and especially kids, on board, the pools were way inadequate. They were far too small. The pools and sun ... Read more

Odd interior décor - lots of pink and gold. Staff at Casino Bar were fantastic. Ship layout was confusing as we generally got lost all the time - especially when finding restaurants (Gold and Black Pearl). Food on Lido Deck ... Read more

Liked the deportation city of New Orleans, 3 hours from our home, with family where we could spend the night before, and no need for a flight. However, very few people on the trip were from Louisiana. The ship was huge, with over 3000 ... Read more

This was my first cruise in the US. We paid 299 each for a balcony room. The room was huge compared to my cruise on Princess. There was a long bench built into the wall, and plenty of storage place. My one complaint about the room is that ... Read more

Carnival's reputation made us avoid them for 35 years, but heard a positive report recently and gave in so we could drive vs. fly. FOOD: I have always said I'm not particular about my food; that I like almost everything. Give me a cold ... Read more
