This was my first cruise and probably the last one. To start with when we arrived we were not told that the bags could be checked in and taken to the rooms when it was ready later. The room was not available until 2 pm. We had a check in time of 1130-1200. The service form the start was terrible. We were not informed of any of the events that were planned for the cruise. We missed the clue game, ...

What a piece of junk! Needs refurbished, or at least fixed. I never thought it possible for a cruise ships food to be so terrible. The biscuits resembled hardtack not actual biscuits. The crew is either complete novices, or imbeciles. Dining service was cold and had no feeling. Food was terrible. The breakfast buffet was yesterday's leftovers, and the breakfast brunch in Washington dining ...

I have been on over 10 cruises using 5 different cruise lines over the years. We were invited on this cruise with a group. I would not have chosen it but, then I thought, how bad could it be? Dining room food was terrible. Cold, fatty, soggy, runny, undercooked, overcooked, sparse, lack luster....you name it! I was shocked at how bad the food was. I even upcharged ($20) for a steak one evening and ...

We have been on 20 or more cruises with several different cruise lines. I would not recommend this ship to anyone unless you have never been on any ship and have nothing to compare it to. Ship is old and outdated and in much need of repair and upgrading. Food is mediocre at best in MDR. Service in MDR is very good. One of the very few highlights of our trip. On the other hand, the buffet is ...

Carnival is nothing like it used to be and the Horizon was no exception. Here are some highlights. 1. If you like to smoke weed and cigarettes anywhere on the ship. This is apparently the cruise for you. I am not talking about smelling it in smoking only sections, I am talking all over the ship. We did complain to the service desk. 2. 99.9% of the staff are 0 for customer services. You ...

My daughter and her boyfriend booked this cruise on Carnival Sensation leaving Miami going to Key West and Cozumel for 4 nights and invited us to come along. We have cruised with Royal Caribbean 5 other times prior to this. This ship is in disrepair. We found rust and many things looking worn and broken. We were greeted at our expensive beautiful balcony stateroom by the overpowering smell of pot ...

Was the worst carnival experience we ever had. By day 3 I cried & wanted to come home. First night/morning we had a young intoxicated girl enter our room at 4am!! We called security and nobody could explain how she was able to enter our locked cabin. They had maintenance check key locks and door the next day to say nothing malfunctioned and they would just reprogram door. So I was worried ...

Carnival Cruise line does not care about their passengers

Let me start off by saying we chose this particular ship because of the skyride, once we got on the ship and everything was paid for we were then notified that this guy ride was down and that we would not be accommodated for it. We spoke to carnival about it and guest relations while on the ship and no one seemed to care. Also beforehand I did call and ask if my husband could bring his very ...

When I first booked my cruise on the Breeze I needed a quick get away and was happy it fit my schedule. I did very little research on the ship as I was fairly confident it would be a set up from my prior cruise on the Miracle. The final few days leading up I noticed on social media Breeze has quite the following so I allowed myself to get a excited. Unfortunately, if it weren’t for the friends I ...

Seven six day cruise from Tampa - Grand Cayman - Roatan - Beleize - Cozumel - Tampa This rust bucket of a boat shout be taken to the Mariana Trench and scuttled along with the crew. I have never had a more miserable disgusting experience in my entire life. But then again if you want a truly horrible experience with nasty crew, slop for food (brought some home for the dogs - they declined to ...
