Old ship. Bad management. Shortage in staff!

I like going on a new year's cruise and I had experienced carnival cruises at least 6 times; this cruise was renovated in early 2017 according to their website. It's not acceptable to me how there were people smoking marijuana in the smoking area and cruise members let it happen. Tables were dirty for a long period of time and no one visible to ask to clear table: so other than my dinner table ...

First of all , let me start by saying that I have taken multiple new years cruise with carnival and other cruise line. My first impression was a worn down destroyed ship that needed a lot of work, but never thought that I would experience a horrible sewage smell throughout the floor where my cabin was at all times!! (7th floor). My cabin was kept clean by my stateroom steward , WIRAT, VERY ...

This was our first Carnival experience. I did the research on this boat far ahead of time and knew exactly what I was getting myself and my family into. Having done several DCL and RCL cruises prior we had low expectations, but even this cruise was lower than I expected. Our embarkation experience was awesome as we did the Faster to the fun upgrade. We were checked in and on board Quickly. We were ...

To celebrate anniversary and to sail with carnival which, I had not done in a year and a half. The room was nor properly cleaned there was hair in the toilet when we got to the cabin , the lido deck was not as clean as it should be and there were flies. The food was marginal could be better other cruise lined have a better dinner option than carnival's. This was my 10th cruise with carnival and ...

My wife and I went on this cruise for our 25th Anniversary. The itinerary was Grand Turk, Princess Cays and Nassau. We embarked on the ship quickly and our room was ready as soon as we boarded the ship, Our luggage was waiting for us when we boarded. The excursions were all great. We ate in the dining room most of the time we were on board the ship, but we did eat at the Burger bar and buffet a ...

Our not-Cuba cruise that became a great get away

We are a 40'ish couple from Texas traveling without our kids. We chose the cruise to get to visit Cuba and had it booked before the latest change in June that Americans cannot travel to Cuba, so cruise ships would not longer be able to stop there. Carnival offered a free cancel or a generous OBC due to the change. The airline offered no generous change option. We are not Carnival's target ...

It looks like Deon who is the star of the entire trip: is probably the hardest worker. Yes- everyone looks like they work hard but the teamwork is needed. Deon excellent with Motown event. The piano singer with beard as Elton John not good which is a shame because the other dancers/ singers are very good and devoted and better than him. I’m sure there’s a superstar within the team to replace ...

I’ve travelled on this cruise ship 3 years ago and I remember the food being so amazing and I was super excited to have that again. Unfortunate, that was not the case. Guys burgers and all those workers there 100% saved the day. We had an awesome waiter every night Herbert so amazing at what he does and so very sweet, Milovan made sure to put a smile on our faces throughout dinner and the show ...

We always have great experiences on Carnival. You could definitely tell the ship was in an older class. The paint was chipping and rusting all over the ship. That is the only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Our room steward, Leonardo was very personable and was there for all our needs. The dining was EXCELLENT whether you ate in the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was my first cruise, so I don't have anything to compare this ship to. Embarkation was fast for me. The food was decent. I didn't eat as much as I thought I would. I think the heat suppressed my appetite a little. I enjoyed the cafe, bars, comedy shows, casino, and parties. The shows in the theater were good. Most of the staff was very friendly. I think I will enjoy smaller to ...
