Carnival Western Caribbean Cruise Reviews

Here is a screenshot of the listed open time for Guy's Burger Bar that they suddenly removed after I went back and forth with Guest Services and back and forth to Guy's Burger Bar when they stated on the app and Guest Services that they were open, but then was told by a crew member after waiting 10 minutes for him to address me that they were not open at that time.
Ministry of Magic (Atrium).
This is the entire buffet
Very small buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner

Worst cruise ever!!

Review for Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western

We just got back from sailing on the Carnival Breeze June 16th with our family of 5. The embarkation was great but that is the only positive thing about this cruise ship. The food was absolutely terrible. Pigs Anchor is only open from 11:30-1:30. Blue Iguana is only open 2 hours for breakfast and 2 hours for lunch. The food in the main dining room is already precooked so they just warm it up ...

. VERY disappointed. One and done with an awful smell (smells like a wet dog) which is being generous.

The Paradise ship is very outdated, not ADA compliant in all areas and has an awful odor. (Smelled like wet dog or throw up). I was VERY disappointed! This was on my 82 yr old mom’s bucket list so you can imagine my dissatisfaction. The dinners each night were ok but nothing to brag about. Very small portions and seconds were not offered. The excursions are pricey and not anything special. ...

Just returned from 4 night cruise to Cozumel on the Valor from New Orleans. This was my 4th Carnival cruise. The 1st 3 were wonderful but I was very disappointed with this one. I’m a 45y/o woman traveling with 3 teenagers celebrating their high school graduation. My biggest complaint was the lack of air conditioning in our cabin. We were on the 8th deck with a balcony. We noticed the heat as ...

WORST Cruise Experience EVER!

This was my husband's first ever cruise and it was my 5th cruise. This was the worst cruise experience I have ever had and an absolutely terrible experience for my first time cruiser husband. Some of the items on this extensive list may be nitpicky to some, but as one thing after another went wrong or were well below expectations due to previous cruises with Carnival and other cruise lines, we ...

SHAME ON YOU CARNIVAL! WHERE WERE THE HEALTH PRECAUTIONS?

While the actual cruise was very good, i was apalled when i arrived at terminal 3 in tampa and saw the hundreds of passengers crowded into the terminal with no distance and about 1/3 (if that, and that included the staff) wearing masks and that was for the 11:00 am arrival time. How did that time frame be for all the people that were in the terminal? While i do realize that we now do not have ...

We decided to go on this Cruise as a family ,nine of us went together, the ship was not what we expected there was not really much to do they did have some shows and things but for the most part while we were on the water it was boring they did offer a lot of food but the food in the dining room and in the buffet area honestly was kind of nasty some of it was good but a lot of it was not very good ...

BE WARNED - YOU WILL SPEND YOUR WHOLE CRUISE IN LINE FOR FOOD

I normally would never take the time to go and complain about a cruise but I WISH someone would have warned me about the food situation on this boat. THERE ARE ONLY 2 BUFFET LINES FOR THE ENTIRE BOAT. Granted there are other venues but even these lines are just ABSURD. Twice we just settled on the pay for meals restaurants so we could ACTUALLY EAT. PS The Bonsai Sushi is REALLY GOOD AND WORTH ...

Overcrowed, Covid-Clustered, No Working Air

Review for Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Western

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

While the crew were kind and gracious, this simply could not make up for the lack of functional air conditioning for DAYS on end and the fact that the ship was absolutely packed so there was no relief from the sweltered overcrowding. I am from Arizona - so I was looking forward to a COOL, ocean vacation. This simply did not happen with this ship. Moreover, due to the number of people on board, ...

Horrible cruise line…

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Our room smelled like smoke, and we contacted Pande our stateroom attendant three different days of the five day cruise. The burgers and pizza was fine but the FINE restaurant food was total joke. People dressing up for food that’s like the western sizzler…please. Definitely not up scale at all. If your in to quantity of food it’s your cruise but if you want quality… this is definitely not it. ...

A different approach to cruising

Review for Carnival Mardi Gras to Caribbean - Western

This was my 23rd cruise, with Carnival being a third of those. I haven't cruised with Carnival in about 5 years and the concept of cruising that Mardi Gras presents is a welcome change (mostly). Embarkation went fairly smooth in Carnival's newest terminal at Port Canaveral. Usual wait times, about an hour overall from dropping bags to stepping on board. Not bad for these days of Covid. Tip: ...
