My husband and I wanted a short break to get away between work commitments, and this was our first cruise on the Carnival line because it was the only cruise that suited both of our available dates for travel. We booked a suite at the back ... Read more

This was a short cruise to celebrate our anniversary. Unfortunately we had terrible weather which was not Carnival's fault obviously. We are in our 50s and definitely the wrong demographic for Carnival. Dining room and buffet were very ... Read more

I happened to walk into the Cruise specialist TA and ask if there were any good deals around for a cruise out of Sydney. A balcony room for 2 people for 11 nights at a total cost of $2,300 seemed like a good deal, so I accepted. ... Read more

We chose the Grand Suite (6215). Only benefit with paying top dollars was the 'Priority boarding', that's it, no priority boarding for tenders, no chocolates on bed nothing like on other cruise lines. Cabin stewards we never saw, but our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the site boasted a promising family experience with plenty on board for little ones. In actual fact if it's too cold for swimming and your little ones are too shy for the kids club then there is very little ... Read more

We were very nervous first time cruisers but we could not have been happier with our trip. Nothing was too much trouble for every staff member we came in contact with and our room was kept very clean with the minimum of fuss. Very cute ... Read more

We went on this cruise as a family group of 10 ranging in age from 2.5 years to 73. As noted in other reviews, this ship is incredibly gaudy and over the top in terms of decorations, so a little hard on the eyes! Having cruised before on ... Read more

I'd never considered going on a Carnival cruise before this trip. Perhaps the snob in me said it was too down market and there were better alternatives around. The price however was right as was the timing so we said 'why not' and I'm glad ... Read more

Very pleased with this cruise - it was a great price as we booked it online as a last minute fare. Our room which was nice - was at the front of the ship so it was very rocky. The facilities on board were excellent and everything was ... Read more

By mistake! We did not notice the "Family Friendly" statements. I have never seen so many overactive kids on any previous cruise. Families would find this ship ideal to allow their kids let their hair down while they relax in ... Read more
