The good- The boat was surprisingly well decorated on the inside and was pretty. The cruise director Neil was the funniest and most entertaining cruise director we have ever had. Iwayan our cabin steward was fantastic and the bed was comfy and inside cabin was spacious. Roy, Mario and David our wait staff all were excellent. The bad- I have been on 3 cruises with carnival within the last ...

This was our 25th Carnival cruise, 43rd overall. The greatest benefit of this "milestone", as Carnival calls it, is a substantial credit when we book another cruise. Once onboard and when when venturing to our room we were surprised to find a white cruise card rather than our normal silver one. White is normally provided to guests with the elite Diamond status, but it will be sometime next year ...

The employees were very Nonchalant. I will never visit this ship or recommend ...

We took this cruise as a last-minute Father's Day gift, and it was close to home. Embarkation was a disater. We had an 11:30 AM embarkation time, which was not adhered to. As we entered the terminal, we were told we must check our luggage due to the size. This never happened at the other Florida ports. Then, the lines were ridiculous and long, and very few people wore masks. Once we arrived in our ...

Amazing cruise with very friendly staff. My favorite spot was the coffee bar, which had amazing coffee and excellent service. One lady named Cherry went out of her way to make each coffee better than the next. She was super sweet to talk to as well. The food was good and the desserts were Fantastic!! If you go do NOT miss the Diva Show or the Rock Show!! it was incredibly and unforgettable. You ...

We cruised on the Elation 4/23-4/28/2022. We had read so much on social media and Cruise Critic, the positive and the negatives and I was a bit concerned. So you will see here that we enjoyed our experience very much. PRIOR to CRUISE: We stayed the night before at the Crowne Plaza Airport, which provided parking for 7 days within the total cost. $5.00 for each day thereafter. They do NOT ...

The port in Jacksonville was very easy to find and to get a park. So much better than New Orleans. No homeless people hanging out like New Orleans. The Embarking and Disembarking the ship was total chaos! We had verifly app and had a passport. We didn't get out of there until 11:30 a.m.! Having a passport did help some, but not much. Embarking and Disembarking was so much better on Carnival ...

My daughter loves Dr. Seuss, and they have cancelled it due to Covid, but they don't tell you that on the website. Get ready to COVID test your child every port and they charged $150.00. Plus the internet service I paid for didn't work. They told me because I paid in advance they couldn't refund my money $80.00 down the drain. Oh and if you have concerns don't bother talking to Guest ...

Please don't hate on me but our cruise was sad. Not sure if it was due to new port, Post-Covid, or what. I am not a complainer and usually just go with the flow, but this was pitiful. Just got off of Spirit this week. Took 3 hours to board. We actually were about 25th in a line of about 500 when a Carnival worker ( very nice older gentleman) told us to get in another line since we had all of our ...
