We embarked on a 7 day Carnival cruise on Panorama leaving Long beach. There are a lot of ways to do cruises, excursions, ect, this is how I did it and my family of 6 (4 kids 12, 13, 15, 16) had a fabulous time. First of all, we ubered from LAX to the port, no problem 67.00. We were early so we went to one of the restaurants about 10 minutes away and had lunch for 1.5 hours. Once back at port ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We went on the carnival panorama cruise for an extended family Christmas vacation. There were 3 things that were extremely frustrating as a mom of 3 children. 1. There are absolutely NO CHANGING TABLES or stations for babies around the cruise ship. Multiple times I changed my 1 1/2 year old child on the floor in a hallway or a corner of a room. The bathrooms don’t even have a small counter to ...

I’ve been sailing on Carnival Panorama since they restarted during covid. A few weeks of back to backs between Sept 2021 and now. This has to be the worst trip. The free food and service has gotten worse not better. With Camp Ocean and kids camp open more kids with no parental supervision leaves a lot to be desired. Do not stay anywhere near Camp Ocean - kids hanging out on stairwells. Yelling ...

We stayed in a Family Harbor inside cabin with 2 pullman beds for 4 people. The room itself felt spacious and our room steward was great. However, there were many issues onboard. Considering it's a newer ship it seemed pretty run down and falling apart. The Family Harbor lounge's doors kept breaking. They'd repair it and not even 12 hours later it'd be broken again. If you're staying in FH anytime ...

Very Friendly Crew, Great Amenities, but this ship needs to be renamed the Carnival Slamorama

We have cruised on many different Carnival ships over the past few years and have a broad range of experiences with different cabin classes and the amenities and layouts of both their older and newer ships. We stayed in a balcony cabin this time around and as Gold VIFP members, got the almost zero perks our class of membership gets. After sailing 50 nights over the last few years, we still have 25 ...

The only downside was the food in the main dining room was subpar. I last cruise pre-Covid in 2019 and the horizon in the food was much better almost identical layout to the panorama but the food in the panorama dining room was not good. Food and other venues was good and plentiful overall it was a very nice experience the only exception was going to the main dining room which of course you look ...

This was my first time on the Mexican Riviera Itinerary and sailing out of Long Beach. The embarkation process was overall very smooth, there were lines for each boarding time, and it progressed smoothly. Once onboard, the ship was great. The atrium is really pretty with the holographic center, but it was kind of underwhelming too compared to the older ships with the extravagant atriums. The ...

Boarding took about 2 hours from arriving at the terminal to entering our stateroom. Though organized boarding was slow. Even though I completed “VERIFLY ”, I had to produce all the documentation again at check in. I thought VERIFLY was about speeding up check in?? First impression of the Panorama was a modern color palette that still had fun elements. Not formal but still had a wow factor. ...

We sailed on Panorama July 30 – August 6. Our cruise background: Family of 4 (2 sons), aged 50, 47, 14, 12. As a family, this is our 5th cruise (with 5 others prior to kids). First Carnival cruise since our first, 20 years ago; we’ve also cruised MSC, NCL, RC, Disney – all Caribbean cruises. We had an overall excellent time on the Panorama. We enjoyed the variety of activities, food and drinks, ...

Things seem pretty much back to normal onboard, except for the signs to wear masks which very few people did. Nice ship and the food at Guy's burgers and Pig and Anchor was really good. Dining room is fine but nothing incredible. The anytime dining process works really well on the app. We got different tables/servers every time which was fine, except if you're old school and like to bond with ...
