Carnival 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

Review for Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Eastern

We wanted a cruise that was close to Port Canavaral because my sister lived near Orlando. We wanted to bring our family and this cruise offered affordable options, with balconies for 3 out of 4 staterooms we purchased. It also had two destinations we were interested in as Amber Cove and Grand Turk. The rooms and beds were clean and comfortable -our room attendant Ronald was incredibly friendly, ...

I've only cruised with Norwegian and wanted to try another line. I booked a premium balcony suite which is an aft corner cabin. Supposed to be a wrap around balcony. A bigger balcony. Decent balcony, small room. We arrived to our room and my partner asked if I smelled something. I didn't. I was outside mostly as we waited for our luggage. It arrived and we went for drinks and then to our ...

The Good, the Bad and the absolutely Nightmarish Cruise

We really looked forward to this cruise. I wish I had never gone. I love snorkeling in Grand Turk and this time was no exception. It was the best part of the cruise. Wonderful water, easy to get to the beach from the ship, really just excellent! But..the bad far outweighted the good. The food quality has really gone downhill. "Someone left the cake out in the rain" was the dessert theme. With ...

We haven't been on a cruise in 3 yrs and not a Carnival one in 5 yrs. We received a nice offer for a Suite cabin from the Players Club. Food: Guy's burger joint was very good. Two different dinner waiters were great. Casino: Dealers could use some help. Consider getting rid of your bonus bet on the craps table. 4 minutes between each roll was lame. Our cocktail server in the casino was ...

Let me first tell you that I have sailed 36 times on nine different cruise lines in eight different ports and the experience that I had in New York was the worst I have ever seen. Upon arrival at the port, it became very clear that the time they requested you to embark was a joke. We got in line just to enter the terminal and waited for an hour and a half just to get into the terminal! Once ...

Amazing Cruise Experience, Upgrades a MUST

Review for Carnival Horizon to Caribbean - Southern

This cruise exceeded any of my wildest expectations. Treating yourself to the Havana Suite is well worth it to avoid the busy pools and crowded bars. Luis at the Havana Bar is the kindest, most welcoming presence to start your cruise experience. The Cheers package is well worth it if you plan on drinking 5 or more drinks a day (water bottles included!!!). Carnival Horizon has some of the best ...

Huge disappointment

This was my 8th cruise and my 5th with Carnival. This was my husband’s 3rd cruise, all with Carnival. We sailed on June 11, 2022 out of Port Canaveral. If you don’t want to read all the details, I will start by saying this cruise was a huge disappointment and we regret booking this trip. I could actually cry thinking about the money wasted. Embarkation - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ One highlight of ...

I have been on over 40 cruises . The Mardi Gras is a fantastic ship. One of the 2 best I have been on. The most variety in dining one could ask for on any ship.. The upscale Restaurants were better than Royal Caribbean. The ship was very clean and the service was excellent throughout. Entertainment was adequate but not quite as good as Royal Caribbean. They would do well to adopt the large ship ...

Carnival Did Not Meet Expectations and we got COVID

Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We selected this cruise for several reasons 1) Casino Rate $100 pp for the week, 2) Anniversary, 3) Did not have to fly and 4) NCL doesn't sail in the summer to Mexico. We are seasoned cruisers with 70 past cruises with various lines, we are Platinum with Carnival. Embarkation - Easy checking in to the ship. We arrived 40 minutes prior to our slotted time and quickly checked in. ...

Review for Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western

We just got back from sailing on the Carnival Breeze June 16th with our family of 5. The embarkation was great but that is the only positive thing about this cruise ship. The food was absolutely terrible. Pigs Anchor is only open from 11:30-1:30. Blue Iguana is only open 2 hours for breakfast and 2 hours for lunch. The food in the main dining room is already precooked so they just warm it up ...
