Christmas Cruise
"Our cruise director and many entertainment staff members ended up having covid from the previous sailing so we did not have many shows and TJ was not our cruise director (Stephan stepped up and did a great job).We made it to Curacao and were allowed off the boat, but the rest of the itinerary was cancelled, and we had replacement sea days until Carnival found a way to give us a port day at Amber Cove...."Read More

Our COVID Cruise Not to the Southern Caribbean

Hello my fellow cruisers! I have broken up my review into different sections for your reading pleasure. This was my first cruise since COVID started, and I was super excited, yet admittedly nervous for my cruise vacation. Overall, I had a good experience and enjoyed my outing and isolation away from the craziness of the world, although there were some hiccups along the way. *FOOD* The food ...

We chose this cruise as a Christmas cruise for 3 adults. We booked 2 separate cabins with connecting balconies as this was a cheaper way than putting 3 in one room. We specifically chose this sailing because it went to the ABC islands. We had been to Aruba and Curacao, but it was a few years back and we have never been to Bonaire. Unfortunately, this sailing was one of the main sailings 1st ...

My wife and I cruise frequently (57 cruises to date) and cruise nearly all major lines, our preference being small ships. Carnival Freedom is not small, but was sailing with limited capacity, so we opted for this as our second Carnival cruise because friends were going. Freedom definitely falls within the "budget cruising" category, and richly deserves it. Here's why: The ship itself is quite ...

My first time on Carnival while my wife had been on other Carnival ships. All of our other cruises have been on Princess, Holland, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean plus some river cruises in Europe. We had a balcony cabin deck 7 port side and found it to be quite nice with lots of room to move around, all the storage we needed, a nice balcony and large bathroom. There was nothing to complain about in ...

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

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 ...
