Ship Says, "Help Me."

This boat is just plain tired. There is paint on top of paint, curtains don't fit, windows need work, carpet is bad, etc. I realize it takes on a heavy load every week but it is just screaming for some decent ...

Disappointing cruise on the Breeze

We chose this cruise because of the ports of call and the fact the Breeze was sailing from Port Canaveral. Embarkation went very well and we managed to get on the ship within 30 minutes of arriving at the port. ...

NOT the same Carnival anymore

I have taken 6 Carnival cruises since 2011. My wife is a platinum member so our embarkation and debarkation were fast and nice. Our room was average, the room stewards were friendly. We found an unopened yogurt in ...

Horrible stench and flooded suite

We were excited to sail on one of Carnival's newest ships but the maintenance issues and poor guest service left us extremely disappointed. First, we paid the additional fee for priority boarding. When we arrived ...

I first want to say I have never written a negative review in my life. But we work very hard to save for our vacations and I know others do too. I simply want to let people know that the Vista is not the average ...

Old, bad food selection

This cruise was chosen for a group traveling together by an agent. The ship was old and in disrepair and had several items not working one of which was the water which flowed dark brown in the middle of the cruise. ...

Food in the dining room was excellent as usual, but the buffet was not nearly as good as it usually is. Desserts on the buffet were tasteless and lacked variety. Cookies were hard as rocks. Breakfast at the buffet ...

Avoid this ship at all costs

We chose this cruise as we have cruised over 15 times with Carnival in the past and had never experienced their larger mega ship class. The negatives first: the layout of the ship in regards to pools, restaurants, ...

Disappointing

Chose the cruise due to the western Caribbean destinations(Grand Cayman, curaçao, Belize and Cozumel). The conquest, although less than 20 years old, was old and tired. Very few fun activities to do on deck. ...

4000 Hoopleheads that dont' know how to shut a door

Only reason I sail from Galveston is it's only a four hour drive. Other than that it's the worst cruise terminal in the world. After traffic was backed up for a mile Galveston P.D. finally decided to get someone ...
