Carnival South America Cruise Reviews

Here is a screenshot of the listed open time for Guy's Burger Bar that they suddenly removed after I went back and forth with Guest Services and back and forth to Guy's Burger Bar when they stated on the app and Guest Services that they were open, but then was told by a crew member after waiting 10 minutes for him to address me that they were not open at that time.
Ministry of Magic (Atrium).
This is the entire buffet
Very small buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner

Terrible Ship and Terrible Food

Review for Carnival Pride to South America

The food was terrible. The dining room food was cold, improperly cooked, or simply tasted terrible. I apologized to the people at the table for telling the to try frog legs when they came out in a grease filled dish falling apart with no flavor. I told them the chef had no idea what frog legs or did not care. I would have been ashamed to have called that my kitchen. Then there was having to stuff ...

Thought to write a review on our second trip on this boat to Vanuatu and Noumea on Jan 30th 2014.This 11 night trip only provided one of the stops we were hoping for out of 5 as there was rough weather off some ports and we were rediverted to Fiji and Port Denerau..We missed Vila which we liked and Lifou,and whilst we would not recommend Fiji(suva) it was brilliant to be woken(even at 6.45 am) to ...

Carnival offered a terrific deal for its Splendor repositioning cruise from the Mexican Riviera run to New York. We bit even though we knew the Splendor had a troubled past and some bad reviews. After signing up, we read a lot of bad stuff about the last cruise to Mexico and the final run to Hawaii and back. Then the Carneval Triumph took the news for weeks and friends declared us crazy. But it ...

Took the 48 day (3 back to back legs) around south America starting in Long beach California on February 3 and ending in New York City on March 2. (my points may be out of order as they happened on the cruise) First it started off in Long Beach, almost 4 hours late leaving port, inefficiency to the extreme handling the flow of people, there was also confusion as they did not seem to know how ...

I have taken 76 cruises and have never been on a bad one, some are better than others of course. This one was pretty bad from start to finish. I booked this one for the itinerary, Long Beach to Buenos Aires, two legs of a trip ( 31 days) where the third leg took passengers from Buenos Aires to New York. It took nearly 5 hours to board in Long Beach with no chairs anywhere for a generally older ...

We arrived at the pier in Long Beach at 12.00 pm. The private shuttle driver was told to unload our luggage in an area in the back where the only person in charge asked for a tip to take care of it. At 12.10 pm we stood in line, 2 hours in the full sun, 1 hour and 20 minutes in the shade. There was nobody in sight to give an explanation, no water was offered and no seats were available for some of ...

We flew non-stop across "our" beautiful country two days before we set sail to have breathing room in case of bad weather, delays, etc. Nothing was going to hamper this once in a life time adventure. We flew South West and saved a fortune on luggage fees. Packing for almost two months for several different climates was a challenge, and layering your clothes was the key. I find that I did over ...

We were attracted to this cruise by both the price and the itinerary. We had never taken a cruise down the West coast of South America, and this seemed like a a great opportunity. Although the ship was going all the way to New York from Long Beach (48 days) we had only the time to go to Santiago Chile (17 days). We were a little hesitant about taking the Splendor because of its history (caught ...

Carnival Long Beach to Santiago Chile leg 1. I just read the first review on this cruise, and was wondering if i was on the same ship. we found the cruise, with the exception of the embarkation disaster, extremely pleasant. when one cruises with Carnival , you have to expect something less than perfect. after all "you get what you pay for". Embarkation: what a disaster. we have to agree with ...

My 27th cruise and the 6th on a Carnival ship: My group comprised 7 adults: 3 married couples (55-62 yrs) and an active single 60+ lady. I selected this ship because I loved the itinerary and it was a trip I have always wanted to do. Embarkation: I was boarding (in Valparaiso) on the second leg of a 40+ day voyage so it ...
