Review for Carnival Sunrise to Caribbean - Eastern

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Let's start with the Pros: The beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, and they keep it super clean. The Italian Restaurant was worth the extra 15 bucks.Guys Burger and Blue Iguana are pretty good. The casino isn't terrible, though a tad on the smaller side. Now for the garbage: The buffet food is horrible, and they only have two lines to accommodate everyone. The on-board entertainment is ...

Least favorite cruise ship

2-5 Cruises

This was the cruise I choose after the pandemic hit and my original cruise was canceled. The only plus was the $600 onboard credit that we received for booking and the wonderful crew (Stewarts and servers). The singers and performers tried to act and sing, and the magician was hard to understand and used beginner's tricks. There just wasn't enough entertainment provided on this ship. The ...

Like most of us, we’ve waited through numerous cancelled cruises over the past 18 months. So it was great to just be onboard and sailing again. Ship and protocols - the Carnival Magic was in excellent condition and all crew members were very attentive to sanitation and COVID protocols. There was a crew member at the entrance to every location where masks were required - with a smile and a ...

My wife and I planned this about a month ago after getting a deal for $100 per person (port hole window cabin) w/ $100 per person OBC. Our only expenses were the drink package, some specialty food, and a couples massage. Such a good deal we couldn't pass it up. This was the Valors 2nd or 3rd cruise since coming back after covid, but the ship was running flawlessly. We didn't have a single ...

We were part of the many who have booked, been canceled, canceled on our own, rebooked, been refunded,etc. over the last 20 months so when a last minute offer was emailed to me 8 weeks ago, I bit. We have sailed on Glory twice out of Miami and really enjoyed the ship. NOLA port was easily navigated. We arrived by taxi. Our check in was at 10:30. We were at check in desk around 10:25. Process ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We enjoyed the serenity deck(15), the thermal suite, cucina del Capitano restaurant, where I had the Best meal of the cruise when I ordered the short ribs. So very tender an tasty. I enjoyed being able to choose whether to relax or join an activity. We must have walked 50 miles per day on the ship alone.I didn't like the nosiness of the crew,or one staff member from the kitchen informing me that ...

Both of us are Diamonds and Casino at Sea members so we did get some perks, like free laundry and a Captains Lunch for Diamonds and Platinums. We got a great casino offer (free room and drinks in the casino) for this cruise actually had a good time in the updated two level (smoking on 5, nonsmoking on deck 4)casino. Great new games and terrific hosts there. The Good: As usual, Carnival has ...

Great service staff, lackluster shows, hit or miss food.

Review for Carnival Mardi Gras to Caribbean - Eastern

2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

This review does not come from an avid cruiser, and it has been many years since my last cruise, so should be taken with that grain of salt, but I would say, in a word, the carnival Mardi Gras was " good". Not great, not bad. I do not necessarily think it was leagues above the other carnival ships we had sailed on in the past, and I suppose this was the expectation considering that it is they're ...

check in even with covid and proof of being negative was a breeze. The port in Nassau is under major construction and i just walked around Nassau for a while and went back and ate and relaxed on the ship. Half moon caye which is Carnival's private island was not as nice as previous visits. the size of the beach is smaller probably do to it being hit by a couple of hurricanes. The beach area was ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

This cruise was the first sailing of the Valor in 18 months because of the pandemic. We had balcony stateroom. We had the earliest boarding time and our room was of course ready because the ship had been vacant for 18 months. Upon swinging open our stateroom door, we were smacked in the face by an overpowering smell of cigarette smoke. This was odd for multiple reasons: 1) the ship had been ...
