Carnival vs Royal
"The food everywhere was good, not great, or memorable.Good location, however, the Roller Coaster was 4 decks directly above, and the cabin shook (mildly), and some noise, each time the ride ran...."Read More

Interracial couples watch out

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

Ryan Harris
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Please if you are an international couple going on one of the newer ships I recommend you don’t. I leave a detail review on the BBB but I had nothing but racist interaction from the workers and plenty from the guests. For example me and my girl was dancing and some random lady pulled her off of me and said no. Like what is the actual heck? Or when you sit down at the casino and the only black guy ...

Disappointed--bigger doesn't always mean better

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

amartyparty
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I was overall disappointed in this cruise ship, seemed they made it bigger to hold more passengers, but less about making the actual cruise experience more enjoyable for the cruiser...the ship is compartmentalized into small sections, no grand center no high ceilings, small theater, small or low ceilings in dining rooms, events had small venues had to wait in long lines if planning to ...

Carnival has gone down hill

January 13 Carnival Mardi Gras Spa Suite I usually do not have much bad to write about when it comes to our cruises over the years because I believe you can find problems with any vacation experience if you want to. My Wife and I have been Cruising Since 1987 with our original cruise on NCL Southward. We now have 28 cruises under our belts and for the most part I can say we have had some ...

Mardi Gras was large but fun

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

I was nervous about sailing on a ship with this many people. Some of the areas are definitely too small for this many guests. Specifically center stage, the Mardi Gras theater, Punchliner comedy club and the limelight lounge are all too small for this many guests. They try to alleviate this by having multiple showings of the same shows. Unfortunately the times don't always work out with how long ...

Beautiful Ship…..Nickled and Dimed!

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

The ship is fabulous! Plenty of things to do! HOWEVER!!!!!!!!! The HUB app is the WORSE and FANTASTIC at the same time. Pros is you can see your photos and it alerts what time events are happening when it’s working! The HUB has a chat feature that was always disconnected so messages didn’t go through when needed. Everyone had to pay $5 for this horrible feature. I didn’t need messages to pop ...

My 17th cruise (all but 2 are with carnival). My wife's 20th (most with carnival). My review from this cruise may be specific to the Mardi Gras...however I think Corporate Carnival policies are likely to be the baseline for my annoyances and I'm holding the Mardi Gras accountable for the following issues: - We've always loved Carnival because the guest demographic is very well rounded (has ...

First Time on Carnival's Big Ship Mardi Gras

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Although we usually cruise out of Baltimore because we live in Northern Virginia and it's a quick drive to the port - we wanted to try Carnival's big new ship, the Mardi Gras. 1. This is a huge ship with tons of bars and restaurants. You can try something new every day and still not hit everything. Although there were 6200 passengers on our cruise, for the most part crowd levels were not bad ...

2nd cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras. I moat often sail with Carnival as we love the laid back cruise style. This time I went with my sister who was a 1st time cruiser so unlike when I'm with my husband she wanted to try everything. Food great. Good choice. Chibang lovely. Italian so so. Main dining nice. Great pizza, sandwiches and burgers. Lido great choice at breakfast and lunch but ...

Not the best cruise I’ve been on

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

Sloef95
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

The ship is beautifully done, but it’s big, so be prepared to walk a lot. We went to beautiful destinations and enjoyed the ports we visited. The casino was great, the room was clean and we had a nice view from our large window. The majority of employees/if not all were wonderful. The casino was fun and I did see some decent winners. My biggest complaint about this particular ship, was the ...

Take It From Me

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Mardi Gras

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I sailed On Carnival Mardi Gras four months prior to the cruise that this comment is based upon. As outstanding as the June cruise was my October cruise was the opposite. I have sailed with Carnival for more than twenty years, so I am well aware of both the good and not so good sides of choosing to sail on Carnival cruise ships. We normally enjoy Carnival, however this cruise we the second worst ...
