Firstly when we got onboard it smelt like poop then go to the cab and there's no water they fix that then only cold water. The crew was not the nicest. The bartenders were kind of rude when you just ordered a Coke. The food was okay nothing great not much on the buffet to choose from if you don't like seafood. The cruise director and shows were great. The amount of marijuana that was smoked on the boat with a bit too much for my liking. People were smoking it in the smoking section as young children were walking by. The pools were always overcrowded and hot tubs. The Pizza Chef was very rude. The serving staff in the dining were awesome. The guest services Workers were always very rude when you went up there. The merchandise in the shops were good priced in my opinion they are very pleasant employees. Read Less

many of my friends was talking about the carnival cruise- so for my fiance's birthday- i suggested a cruise to the bahamas. here's a rundown of our cruise: 5/4: Tagging our luggage- very nice person- he informed us where to go and where to line up at- very helpful since we informed them that we were 1st time cruisers. Lining up at Guestcare- just so that we can put a credit card on file- which later i found out that we didnt need to put one on file. stood in line for 1 hour- no biggie- we were enjoying the scenery. getting on the ship: was cool- everyone was nice and pleasant to be around- we walked around until our room was ready. After 2.5 hours- we started to go to our room- per our sheet that we got from Guestcare- PROBLEMS: someone elses luggage was there- sheet that gave us iteneraries for the day- was not US- the room was supposed to be decorated with balloons and a drink for my birthday surprise for my fiance- WAS NOT THERE OR DONE. so.....thinking - it was simple mistake- we will find our luggage the decorations must have been an oversight- no problem- BUT- when we asked our stewards about our luggage- he was not helpful- said- "they were very busy and maybe 2 hours- we can get our luggage".... or " i can go to Guestcare- soo...we decided to go to Guestcare- where there was a line of people and long and behold- our luggage was sitting on the hallway- tag has been removed from porting- so there was no way of us finding out unless we look inside the luggage- which we did and thats how we find out that was our luggage. 5/5: we asked several for room service, since our room has not been cleaned- we asked for clean towels- only to be told that - they are on thier way to cleaning the rooms... 5/7: carnival DOUBLE charge my debit card- i had to wait until 5/9 to call guestcare and talk with them so that i can have my bank release the funds- in the meantime- my account in the negative for 2 days- no money until they released it- it was exhausting- Guestcare said that they failed to tell us about the hold- ...overall- the rest of the cruise was good- carnival pushes for Guestcare and how amazing they are- but we didnt feel- it was awful experience at first. we would like to cruise again- not sure if we will use carnival this time tho- but i really liked my carnival planner- greg- tho..

Depressing and old ship, the service was terrible the bartenders and one Asian guy serving the burgers who basically through us a food we don't understand how a person like that works in a cruise. Thank God our waiter at the restaurant (Mario) was very friendly because if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have anything positive to say about the service. The quality of the food in general is horrible. There was only one show (living in America) which by the way was very good. The Latin band not organized, always starting late and didn't have a program to follow they improvised all the time. The smoking areas were in the middle of the ship in the bar next to the casino an area too big and impossible to avoid. the pool area also people smoking. We don't recommend this ship to anybody and never returning to this ship again. Read Less

This was my very first trip on Carnival and possibly my last. I was told to try other Carnival ships before avoiding them all together but I don't know if I want the hassle. The people and vibe on the ship was great, but...... First off, I was told that tea and water would be the only free non-alcoholic beverages to drink all day, so I purchased the soda and bubbles package (something like that) just to get lemonade and maybe a sprite or something if I needed to settle my stomach for any reason. I am highly pissed about spending the $6.50 per day (times two because my roommate had to buy it as well) and was not even able to use it. The lemonade and breakfast juices were free for everyone to drink all day... FREE! I spoke to the lady at the counter, no title because whatever her position was, she was not helpful at all. Whenever I tried to ask about getting a soda, it was either not registered to use with my card or given to me without swiping my card which lets me know that I was billed for no reason for drinks that were FREE. Yes, CARNIVAL, I want my money back because that purchase was misleading and a false advertisement for more money. I also prepaid gratuities and was still charged gratuity on every purchase I made. The food was just okay, nothing spectacular. The club and music was great. The ship is also pretty old and the design is poor. If a certain areas are "adults only serenity areas", then why is the entrance to the water slide in the center of the adults only area and kids are lined all the way down the stairs and running around the entire area. Really!!! Some parents even had their kids in the adults only area with them.. Unreal. There was no separation at any time for adults. The cruise manager was very energetic, but the constant announcements over the intercom became too much after a while and were annoying. I can still hear "Chhhhheeeeerrrrrriiiiiooooo!" I guess he wanted to be memorable and he was, unfortunately for me, successful. Checking out and getting off the ship was a nightmare. Only one person was at the counter to assist people in the middle of the night who were trying to avoid long lines. The self check out machines were broken and only one was up and running the last night. The morning we docked, the computer systems went down which meant that there were lines and lines of people trying to get off the ship, but could not. I was three hours late getting off the ship and almost missed my flight. No one at the port gave directions to catch the shuttle to the airport so I was running around like a crazy person trying to get to the airport as fast as I could and I just did make my flight. Yes, so over that part of the trip. Read Less

This was my third Carnival cruise and the most disappointing. The cabin decor was very old and the breakfast and lunches were cafeteria caliber food. The 24-hour pizza kiosk was the best! Hate the idea that only water and cheap lemonade are offered as beverages, sodas should be included. The day at sea did not offer many activities, that could be a plus for those wanting the vegetate and do nothing. Long lines to eat breakfast and lunch. The Cat in the Hat breakfast was a high point, only $5 per person and the food was very tasty. My granddaughter very much enjoyed the character breakfast. The Sea and See shore excursion was a joke, especially the "tour" portion which was no more than a bus ride to a shopping area, not an island tour as advertised. Not worth the $80 per person cost. The entire experience felt low class! Read Less
