I admit I am not an avid cruiser, but I have been on several cruises before. However, this is my first Carnival cruise. In the past, I have cruised Disney and Royal Caribbean. I chose this Carnival for this trip because it fit the time frame we had to take our grandchildren on a cruise. I didn't expect Carnival to compare with Disney or RC. HOWEVER, we had a GREAT experience on the Carnival ...

New Year's Eve was fun. Champagne was flowing on the top deck. Below deck, masks were worn in public areas. Covid didn't stop people from having fun. Carnival wasn't great about having people wash before eating/elevators and they allowed people to serve themselves at buffets. People were respectful and spaced out on deck and sat with their family/friends as much as possible during ...

Let's start with the Pros: The beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, and they keep it super clean. The Italian Restaurant was worth the extra 15 bucks.Guys Burger and Blue Iguana are pretty good. The casino isn't terrible, though a tad on the smaller side. Now for the garbage: The buffet food is horrible, and they only have two lines to accommodate everyone. The on-board entertainment is ...

We have not been on Carnival in many years, and I booked this because the date fit our needs and NCL didn't have anything with this exact date. This was the ship's 3rd trip out since Covid. The staff are still learning the ship, learning their jobs, but all were happy to be back. Masks were required and for the most part worn. We sometimes forgot to put them on when getting up from eating, but ...

I usually cruise in Carnival Cruise Line because I refer to them as the fun, party ships. I had a great time. This was the first shop I’ve every sailed where the DJ played music for all race and ethnicity. The enter for me was five star. I’m African American and I went to the Latino event and had a blast. The entertainment on this cruise was amazing. Every night it was something for me to ...

We sailed Feb 22-26/2020. We had been on this ship when it was the Triumph a few years ago.This was somewhat of a compromise vacation. My husband wanted to do an all inclusive and be on the beach and I wanted to cruise. So we chose a 5 day cruise and then stayed on the beach in Florida afterwards for a week. We chose this cruise because Grand Turk is one island we had not seen (been on all the ...

Second time on the Sunrise with a different itinerary. The CD was Erin and she cannot compete with the energy level Chris the Flying Scotsman had on our 1st cruise. The weather was bad the first two days, so some of the shows could only do the singing part of their performance. High winds & rough seas are no fault of the cruise line, so we took our Dramamine and enjoyed ourselves. There are so ...

We were told the ocean view cabin were big enough for 3 adults. What they did not tell us is you get 2 twin size beds and 1 sofa bed that is as hard as the floor and does not open to a full length twin bed. I am only 5.3 and I was not able to lay straight for 5 nights. This is my 10th carnival cruise. The 3rd bed has always been a pullout or a bunk bed. When I went to guest services she said ...

The bad things are the night time it is ...

Took the Carnival Sunrise with my two - year old son, GF, her mom, her brother, my sister, and two friends. We all had an amazing time, and I'm happy to report we now have two more people hooked to cruising! The ship itself, as I'm sure you know by now is the retrofitted Carnival Triumph, which probably was due for a rebranding after its well - publicized issues. Let me start with THIS ...
