Carnival Houston 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

The Carnival Magic had very poor entertainment. One person was the MC and he was boring. Jokes were bad and you couldn't understand what he was saying half the time! The food was fair and the portions were so small that you would have to order multiple dishes just to get a few spoons full! The Ahi Tuna appetizer was a joke! It was1 inch x 1/2 inch in the middle of a plate! They only offer ...

We cruised out of houston port spring break. For those of you that dont know worst time to cruise is in march, because if their is fog they can cancel your cruise. Houston of port, first thing you need to know is you drive up drop your bags off, then drive to your designated parking lot and take a shuttle back. If you are a visabled pet, they will let you park for free. This will save you about ...

It has been years since we went on a Carnival cruise, but we liked the itinerary and have friends we wanted to visit in Texas. We've always had a good time on Carnival in the past but as we got older we weren't sure about the party reputation. We we're happily surprised with the result. The ship was spotless, the crew very friendly and helpful, the food was above average with the exception of one ...

As an experienced cruiser with probably 40 plus different cruise experiences I was disappointed in the Magic. I had not been back on a Carnival ship for almost Five years because I was very disappointed in that cruise compared to what was being offered on RCL / NCL / Princess. I was lured back because of a basically free cruise offer. I totally got my money worth out of the cruise. I felt ...

My brother (34) and I (31) took my parents (retirement aged) on this cruise for their anniversary. While my parents like to sleep late and my brother is happy laying at the pool all day, I like to do all sorts of things on the ship. I will write this review from the perspective of a younger, professional male while occasionally adding thoughts of my travelmates. Since I live in Houston, my ...

The Oct. 18th sailing was my 2nd time on the Ecstasy and 10th Carnival sailing. As usual, Carnival gave me a good vacation and a very good value for my money. I did not arrive at the Bayport Terminal until 11:30 and it was quite congested as the ship was three hours late in arriving. There was a line to get into the terminal and even a longer line to get through security. I was disappointed with ...

Not So Ectatic About The Ecstacy

Our trip started out well. We arranged a flyin/cruise package with the Springhill Suites. We arrived at Hobby, got picked up, spent the night, had a good breakfast, a quick rest and than Coach USA sent a private driver to pick us up at the hotel. Bayport Cruise Terminal is a 81 million dollar joke. It is in the middle of nowhere, has very little parking and thank goodness we had a driver or ...

Where to begin......after taking 3 or 4 days to find out if the ship was sailing, since Galveston was not an option, everything else went just fine before leaving port. Food - most of the dining room experience I would classify as not the best. The food was only adequate, but the waiters in Windsong were pretty good. The dining room was too cold, so we had to change our dining attire and then ...
