Nice Winter Getaway

|

We drove to the Port as we are from the Midwest. We parked at Lighthouse parking and have the last few times we have sailed from Galveston. It is much smaller, but I've never had to wait a long time for a shuttle. ...

Retirement celebration

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 ...

Our cruise was very nice, and we loved the Breeze.

This was our second year on the Breeze. We even had the same Balcony cabin on Deck 6. We love the location mid ship. I was on a cane, from Back Surgery only 8 weeks earlier, And it was mid point to anywhere ...

Best Carnival Ship So Far

We selected this cruise so that we could revisit Cozumel, Belize and Roatan. The Breeze was resently refurbised and the decor was far nicer that any Carnival ship that we have been on. It had muted and tasteful ...

Good Experience on the Sensation

We chose this cruise based on price and sail dates. It was Thursday-Monday which made getting off work much easier. I was concerned about the boat after some of the reviews but soon realized it was much better. I ...

Very, very good cruise. Could've been great...

Embarkation/debarkation. No complaints. New Orleans has this down pat. Carnival should take what NOLA does and clone it for all their other ports. Ship. Before I go further, I must make it clear I am a fan of the ...

Spa room cruise on the Vista

Be sure and arrive at your designated time, you don’t want to get in the longer early or late line. If you bring on a small ice chest, no ice or water allowed, bring freezer packs. Cans only is the rule now ...

CARNIVAL PARADISE - pretty, pretty, pretty good ship!

Disclosure, we "overpaid" for three cabins on the Paradise that departed Tampa on 12/26. Of course it was supply and demand market pricing, but I felt like this (older) ship was going to have an uphill battle to ...
