"You might not know it, but when you cancel a port of call for weather, every one of the ship’s crew gets pressed into duty for the unscheduled sea day.While discussing Guest Services, I'll say that one of our (new) suitcases was damaged when it arrived to our room...."Read More

I got an opportunity to join my friend on this Carnival Magic cruise going to Grand Caymans and Jamaica. Once I paid on it I started noticing that the excursions where going to Nassau and not Grand Cayman. We call and got changed to Carnival Freedom which was a 6 day cruise. Ok cool. I CALLED Carnival prior to regarding Covid testing and was told we could take the test 72hrs prior to sailing(which ...

This ship needs to be refurbished, there is black mold all over the place especially under the staircase that is on the LIDO deck closest to the Toppings Bar for GUYS Hamburgers, the service was really poor, I asked for a tray one night because hubby did not want to go eat, so I picked up some pizzas, wanted to take desert and a drink back to the cabin, so I asked for a tray and was told, they are ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was my first cruise and probably the last one. To start with when we arrived we were not told that the bags could be checked in and taken to the rooms when it was ready later. The room was not available until 2 pm. We had a check in time of 1130-1200. The service form the start was terrible. We were not informed of any of the events that were planned for the cruise. We missed the clue game, ...

Although we have cruised many times, this was our 2 cruise with Carnival. But in short, we, as a Family, had a blast! The kids were highly entertained. Cozumel was super fun! I counted 8 Ships, but later noticed 2 more. Safe to say around 20 to 30 thousand people......The Island was packed. Everyone was having a great time. My husband and I have already booked our 33rd and 34th cruise ...

This was my first cruise. I had a good trip, even with the changes caused by the corona virus. The food was very plentiful and the varieties seemed endless. There was dinning for every type, from the burger joint to the verrrry formal. Like what you saw on pictures of the movie THE TITANIC. The restaurant staff was very polite and tables were always available. The dinning times kept your ...

The last dinner (Valentine’s Day) with my family was almost ruined by our waiter... He forgot a lot of items ordered and got most of the Entrées completely wrong. He was too busy talking to the table full of ladies instead of giving his full attention to our table. But other than that everyone (expect for the last waiter) on the ship was great. Rooms were clean, Hallways were clean, and Restrooms ...

My husband and I went on a 7 day cruise to get away from everyday life as to relax.our bathroom was very dirty,, it smelled of urine. The couch was peach in color and you could see the dirt on the edge as soon as we went into the room. I use Clorox wipes on the floor in restroom which were brown and the couch was the same. After the clean up by myself it was much better. I don’t know what kind of ...

Unfortunately the Ship, or whom-ever decided to have the "Meet N' Greet" on a strange date ( last Sea Day) and also at the 6:00 PM Dining Time. We had early dining and it was Elegant Night, with Prime Rib and Lobster ..... GUESS which one we went to . The rest of the Cruise was wonderful - with a great Cruise Director - "T.J." ........ and the Shows were the best we have ever seen on a CCL ...

My husband and I booked last minute for this cruise. We literally had the last outside Jr.Suite. The room was clean and too comfortable:) We were greeted at IAH by the Carnival transfer represented (very pleasant) and organized. Comfortable one hour bus ride(took a nap). Arrived where our luggage was taken promptly to the ship. The smoothest check in no hassles. We were greeted with champagne as ...
