I'll start this review by saying I hadn't initially booked this sailing, originally we were booked on the Panorama for the 9th of December but due to engine problems, the ship was dry docked. That being said we paid little to nothing for this cruise nor did I have many expectations as this was my first time sailing with Carnival. For reference, my first cruise was on Harmony with Royal, which was ...

Not apples to apples! Great time with our daughter and her 3 boys ages 6, 3, 1! boys were too young to participate in some of the fun, plus the weather was on the coolish side, but that is on us. we made the best of what was lovely about the experience. my daughter chose an interior cabin for this "cruising experiment." she was amazed how well they fit...she and baby in queen bed and boys ...

First off, this ship has a very weird layout. You can’t walk from one end to the other on most decks. The layout is so odd, the Comedian headlining the weekend made a joke about it! The crew, for the most part, were outstanding. Very friendly and helpful. The bars, while always busy, got to everyone fairly quickly and the drinks were tasty. Most of the included restaurants around the ship were ...

I've cruised on Carnival Radiance 3 times so far and each time it meets basic standards. The drink package is always a must and i love having a cabin on deck 6 bringing you close to the entertainment. I made the mistake of picking a cabin in the rear of the ship and on the last day at sea it was super rocky and i got a little seasick but that was my fault. The ship is a little outdated, but it is ...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this cruise! From the customers service, the friendless, the food, the music, Polly the Cruze director, the pools and hot tub, shopping, rooms. Everyone is so personal. We exorcisms want to give a shout out to Budiarta our State room attendant. He was amazing!!! He made us feel like family. Always happy, always smiling and always friendly. The rooms are ...

To be honest, we had a great time. There were so many unsupervised kids running around. I can’t imagine why parents are not watching these kids. They sit on stairs on decks eating and leave excess food where they sit. This was a weekend and kids were not back to school after winter break. Also, several big birthdays, anniversaries and bachelorette parties. Party, party party. What ...

This was a little pre-holiday getaway on the Carnival Radiance. I wasn't expecting much, but it was better than I expected. That said, there were some good and some bad. I'll try to leave a comprehensive review. The itinerary: Just meh. Catalina was the highlight of the two ports. It looks very Mediterranean from the ship. Ensenada was less than picturesque. Neither offers much in the ...

This is my second cruise. My first experience cruising was not the best, however this time was amazing! The staff was very nice and attentive. They even new our names and addressed us as such. There can be a little wait to get a drinks, however it goes by really fast. Every food place that we tried was good. I especially enjoyed the Seafood Shack and Big Chicken as well as the Italian restaurant ...
