I have been on this cruise two other times with different family members. This time I noticed that the shows were not as good the food was lacking and Carnival has cut a lot of corners on things. The ice cream used to be 24 hours and now they open at 11:00 am. The omelette station only has a few options to choose from and they stopped serving bacon a few days into the cruise. Dinner was very ...

Once on the ship, we were told to go to our rooms. No ...

This was definitely my last Carnival cruise. The other 2 were back in 2019 and both Caribbean. I took a chance that 5 years and a different ocean could be a different experience. We did have a good cruise, but it was because we had 3 awesome excursion days. I'm not going to beat them to death here, but there was literally nothing "good" on this boat except for our team in the main dining. ...

Checking in was lines lines and more lines. They had us park off site and be bused in. Took hours. Elevators seem not to work efficiently. Internet went down so dismemberment was another cattle call nightmare. Was in line for disembarking info and tags for 2.5 hours on the day before disembarking. No more announcements for groups to disembark. None at all. We had no idea what time to get off the ...

The food was terrible. You could tell they used frozen vegetables which resulted in soggy and oddly salty vegetables. Dry and overcooked meat. Overcooked pasta and noodle. The rice was wet and crumped together. They either used instant rice or a messed up pot. The only things that are ok were pizza, burger and soft-serve ice cream. Fine dining every evening was no better as they serve similar food ...

We chose this cruise as it's only a 50 minute flight to Long Beach. The ship was very clean and I'm not sure how Carnival does it, but their staff is amazing. We took our 7 year old grandson and had a deluxe ocean view with to bathrooms. There was enty of room for the 3 of us. It was 2 hort flights to the Vista dining room. We always take my time dining as we enjoy the flexibility. The Food ...

Surprisingly Good Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We're frequent cruisers, who mainly sailed on Carnival years ago for the shorter, party itineraries. We have been mainly sailing on Celebrity since then but wanted to go on this specific itinerary and thought Carnival might be fun for our son. We didn't know what to expect and to my surprise, they nailed it, it was a surprisingly good cruise. The ship itself was beautiful, clean, and the staff was ...

Getting there Brian and I booked the Panorama to the Mexican Riviera last year for our Spring Break cruise. We took advantage of a very rare free Cheers promotion, and used it to the fullest! We took the chance of flying from Las Vegas to Long Beach the morning of the cruise. It was a little stressful, but we took the first flight in the morning, with plenty of flights throughout the day ...
