First cruise ever, never again on Carnival

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Conquest

Captain72
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Shows this cruise because it fit my schedule and the price was reasonable. However, the food at the Monet dining room. Very good food I give the food at the Monet dining room along with the service five stars. The ship does show its age it’s got rusted out parts on the ship, we can see holes nothing would make it see worthy. The reason why I will never go on Carnival again is because they ...

A trip to remember..

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Conquest

Fri
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Astonishing service all around. Maurice went above and beyond ensuring we had an amazing dinning experience. The servers Mike, Eko, and James were very attentive, and awesome. Their level of detail was excellent. We loved them being part of our experience, and we’re grateful to them. The food was delicious, fresh and tasty. We loved the menu and verity of options. Also, Jophet the stateroom ...

Worst Cruise in 31 Years of Cruising

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Daisyjakedingo
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We are Platinum status with Carnival, so we've sailed with them frequently. This cruise was the worst of any -- Carnival or other cruiselines -- that we've ever been on. The ship was SO CROWDED!! The two hot tubs on Lido deck were always completely full; I counted 17 people in one hot tub!! And the music on the Lido deck was so loud you could feel the vibrations. WHY do they think people want ...

Solid B for the Celebration

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Celebration

MelMcGhie
10+ Cruises • Age 40s

We were invited to attend a friend’s wedding onboard Carnival Celebration so we booked and are happy we did. Loved our cabin (ocean suite) with comfortable bed and 2 tvs. Spacious bathroom and balcony. Lots of activities and shows onboard. We especially enjoyed the comedy shows at Punchliner Comedy Club and the nightclub atmosphere at Limelight Lounge. DJ Copey kept the hits playing and people ...

Awful

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Vista

User272837379292
First Time Cruiser • Age Under 20

My first cruise ever and I never want to cruise again… at least on carnival. 600 staff members short, and about 2k too many people for the ships size. My family and I ate in the main dining room on Monday night, and I had the worst steak I’ve ever had in my life. It was halfway to being leather. I would never recommend this cruise line.. or at least this ship. Do some research before you book, or ...

Carnival hates Senior Citizens

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Spirit

Jamesbond44
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The last cruise was horrible: 1-Instead of Platinum priority, we were told there were too many Platinum members aboard 2-Anytime dining was a disaster over and over, our phones would not let us make a reservation, and the folks out front were not pleased (after the fourth day they would reserve a table for us) 3-Brunch over an hour to get food while people after us got served quickly ...

Could have been better!!

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Carnival Radiance

RF001
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

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 ...

Tried again, won't be fooled three times.

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Vista

CherylFlorida
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

After a disastrous cruise on Liberty in July 2023, I swore off Carnival. However, I found a VERY cheap 3 day (changed to 2 at last minute) trip on Vista for my birthday celebration right out of my home port (Orlando) and decided to give them another try. On a positive note: the ship was fresh out of dry dock so the smells and broken disrepair of the Liberty were not present. However, I do believe ...

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Elation

Ladybug155
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I read several reviews that mentioned this was a good option for a first time cruiser so we decided to try it out for our 25th anniversary. I brought a sign to decorate my door but it did not stick to the door so it appears they are not metal and I would suggest an adhesive hook for anyone considering door decorations. We were fortunate that our room was kind of in a corner so we didn't have ...

The best trip ever is going on a cruise across sea

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Elation

Marco27
First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

I had an wonderful time, and would love to cruise again. The food, clubs, comedy, and drinks are the all good. The staff is the best and I would prefer everyone to go try it out. The captain handle the ship very nice, and Lance the comedian had me laughing. My best part of the cruise was the app they had to help guide you with different activities going on. There was a lot of things you can do on, ...
