Unhappy with Management, path was blocked with hazards, food hasn't been changed

Review for Carnival Splendor to Australia & New Zealand

The embarkation was fast. The main lobby was very small, noisy and crowded. Their website says they use USD so I selected cash for my onboard account (I have only AUD bank card). I called hotline and they told me they use AUD, but I needed to get on board soon. So took 25 minutes to wait for guest service staff to fix my account (linked to AUD bank card ). I chose King bed for my dad online 2 days ...

Review for Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Western

First, the good things. My wife and I chose this cruise as a winter getaway. We generally prefer 7 day cruises but a 5 day trip departing from New Orleans looked like a good vacation. In addition we decided to stay in an oceanview cabin and it was a good value. The Valor staff were all hard working and courteous. Every employee we encountered did the best they could in their role to serve ...

Sooo I really wanted to go on an RCL cruise, but my mother picked Carnival for our mini Mother/Daughter getaway. Both had an identical itinerary option for a short weekend trip to Nassau but Carnival was a lot cheaper. I really wish we would have shelled out the extra $100 per person for RCL. (Our suite on Carnival was $100 less than a standard balcony would have been on RCL) >>>> I'll start ...

Sailed on the Carnival Breeze January 16-21 We chose this cruise kind of last minute since our cruise was cancelled at the beginning of the pandemic. My wife and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary so we took this opportunity to sail without our kids. We let the cruise line pick out room. We were assigned 7237, which is in the front of the ship but unfortunately right above the theater so ...

Review for Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

If you're in the market for a cruise vacation, the Carnival Glory is a solid choice. I recently spent seven days on the ship, and found it to be the perfect amount of time. Not too long, but long enough to fully experience all the amenities the ship has to offer. I've been on two cruises out of New Orleans, and it's my favorite departure location. The Glory is starting to show its age a bit, ...

This was a last minute cruise for my mom 83 years old, and I, 57. Cruise was fine, no real issues. Even though we had anytime dining, we never ate in the dining room. The same items were available in the buffet, and the food was fine. Not a fan of the Pizza, not much sauce and crust was like cardboard. Delicious sandwiches in the Deli area. Casino did not treat me well till the last two nights. ...

Booked this cruise with my sister to celebrate her 50th BD since our original plans were canceled in 2020. I am platinum and my sisters first cruise. Embarkment was easy, appointment was 10am and boarding A01, arrived at 9:45am and walked right in quickly to lounge and on ship 10:45am. As platinum, we can go right to room, get our keys and luggage should arrive quickly. Room not ready, ...

Review for Carnival Radiance to Mexican Riviera

So I understand this boat was “recently” remodeled to upgrade it. The finishes were quite nice. All the facilities in general was nice. Now onto the weird portions. Cabin layout: We stayed in one of the “new” rooms in the 5th deck. According to the Victory’s floor plan our room used to be the one of the Aft Lounges. Great! A new room. Except it seemed like the furniture was chosen before ...

My family and I just returned from our 3rd Carnival Cruise and I felt compelled to write a review. I was waiting for the survey they kept telling us we would get via email but it still has not come. Our extended family has been cruising with carnival for many years but this last experience was really bad. It is sad to say I was actually looking forward to getting off the ship and going home after ...

Honestly, the only reason I took this cruise is because I'm about to hit Platinum, and I wanted to get more sail days in to get to 75 a little sooner. It was an alright cruise, but I will admit the weather took "some of the wind out of my sails" (forgive the pun). Weather kept our cruise from going to Catalina Island, so we went directly to Ensenada. Three sea days on a four day cruise is a ...
