I gave my wife for Christmas a cruise gift which it was Carnival Liberty on 1/28/18 we have a 8 month old baby which unfortunately got sick on the first day of the cruise took him to the doctor that is at Carnival Liberty he had a rash and the doctor said it was measles he told us to stay in the room and don't take them out of the room until we got back to the port in Cape Canaveral we were stuck in a room for two and a half days after the first day I complaint didn't get a call or asked if we need it anyting it's a shame that they were worried of my son getting everybody on the ship sick which I Emma wife understood but they did not care about us they just stuck us in a room to fend for ourselves it's a real shame that the only ones that really tried to help it was two gentlemen from housekeeping and as soon as we got back to Cape Canaveral we were one of the first ones to get escorted out of the ship took my son to the hospital and ended up that was not the measles on top of that they sent Health Services of Orange County to my house it's a real shame what was supposed to be nice trip especially for my wife that's been a great mother it wasn't don't want any money or free Cruise from Carnival but kindness and caring for other people goes a long way Read Less

This was a good short cruise to Moreton Island. There were heaps of first time cruisers on the ship which was good to see. I didn't even bother getting off the ship when we got there so I had the ship to myself. Was able to do mini golf without heaps of kids and could hang out in Serenity without heaps of people there. Was even able to win a couple of rounds of Trivia due to most of the people getting off the ship. I took full advantage of the SPA so that I could have a bamboo/stone massage. Pro's - Good value for money and yummy cocktails. Con's - People taking their kids out of school to do a cruise, but that happens a lot these days. Best part is they showed the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics so I was able to see some of that before I went off to see a show. Read Less

First cruise ever and what a disappointment it was. Started as soon as we got to our room we paid extra for a suite didn't realize a working toilet was extra. Rang housekeeping 3 times to get it fix and someone showed up 24 hr later. When the boat was in port or travelling at low speed there was the worst vibration in the room so bad that you could not sleep at night. Life boat drill was just as bad, crew sent us the wrong way, PA system not working. some of the lifts where broken the food in the pantry or restaurant was bland and had no tast had breakfast in the room on morning ordered the big breeky,stone cold not even a hint of warmth. condom on the pool deck from the night before and this was about 12 pm the comedy show was excellent sadly the boat has passed it use by date and needs to be given to the refugees FIRST AND LAST CRUISE WITH P&O Read Less

We chose this cruise because the price was unbelievably cheap and it turned out to be a very good cruise. I was surprised how nice the ship was after reading some of the comments on Cruise Critic tearing the ship apart saying the ship looks old, cabins look outdated etc. But I found the cabin that I was in to be quite large and it was an inside cabin at that and very modern, the rest of the ship looked quite good and plush. I especially liked the lookout lounge in the Dome it was fantastic and it took me back to when I used to travel on the old Oriana and I would sit in the lookout lounge in the late afternoon watching the sun set and sipping on a Bourbon and Coke waiting for dinner. Pacific Eden took me back to my younger days and they even had a great piano player playing songs and people sitting around the piano singing or just getting into the beat and dancing same as the Oriana. The piano was in the the mix bar. I found this ship to be quite modern and stylish even for her age. The ship is not too big and not too small just the right size with a comfortable amount of passengers. I found the Pantry was small with less tables than the Pacific Explorer but the Eden didn't have the same amount of passengers either but to my surprise there was never any problem getting a table in the Pantry and the other passengers on board where very polite and not reserving tables and I think this made a difference. The food in the Pantry quite nice and they had different items on each day. The Main Dining Room was very nice but the menu there needs a bit more selection. I came across some passengers who reckoned the food was not as good as the food on the RCL, Princess and QE. and I tried to explain that they were comparing a 3 star ship to 5 and six star ships and the price difference too. There is entertainment all night long and so yes it is a funship. Read Less

ust got off our cruise on the Ecstasy out of Charleston, and I thought I'd share a few notes with you all. The embarkation went faster that we had hoped in Charleston. We arrived at the port at 11am and were onboard and in our cabin by 11:30. Eating lunch 10 minutes later. Having FTTF helped. Guys Burgers were great, as were the tacos and burritos at Blue Iguana, pizza at Pizza Pirate, and sandwiches from the deli. All great. Not so great were the Lido buffet each night. This was our 11th cruise with Carnival and the first time we've felt the buffet food quality has declined. But with the above mentioned options were we well fed every day. One positive note: The deli was still making sandwiches to order. No premade sandwiches stacked on shelves like other ships have gone to. Never had a problem finding a table or chairs on Lido deck to sit and eat or relax. Never waited longer than a few minutes for food at any of the eateries. That's always been one of the perks of the smaller ships for us. Princess Cay was very nice. Enjoyed our time there. Nassau was Nassau. We walked around downtown and in the Straw Market. Souvenir prices have gotten outrageous there, and also on Princess Cay. The ship itself is showing considerable wear. Had a couple of issues with our stateroom. One was fixed asap (loose toilet seat about to come off), and the other issue they said they couldn't fix (very low water pressure in the shower). They suggested showering at off hours when not so many were also showering. Tried that. Didn't matter. We made the best of it. A few holes in the cabin curtains, a very hard bed, but nothing we couldn't deal with. Debarkation went just as fast as embarkation for us. With FTTF we walked off the ship at 8am with no wait. In our car and heading out at 8:30. All in all a good time, but I think we will pass on the Ecstasy for future sailings. Regards, Oletruckdude Read Less

Wanted to get some 'warm time' in the middle of winter. Oceania does an excellent job of staff training. We did not meet or pass a crew member who did not have a friendly greeting. This was our third sailing with them and two more already booked. Food and service is excellent. Our butler for the suite could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. Housekeeping is top notch and cannot do enough to please.The entertainment is somewhat weak but that's not what is all about on this type of cruise. We thought that some of the cast shows were somewhat ambitious productions. They do try very hard to please. We did think that the cruise director was difficult to understand when he speaks. The welcome aboard party and the Captain's party for returnees is a nice touch with free drinks and hors d'oeuvres . All in all you cannot go wrong with Oceania. Read Less

We chose this cruise because of the gospel celebration going on...everything was great.. Getting on the ship was no problem at all...our departure was delayed due to fog about 5 hours because port was closed, that is how bad it was....but the staff was great during that time, they kept serving food and set up games to play , gave all of us a deck of cards...overall met all our needs. The food was delicious everywhere and the restaurant staff were cheerful and helpful... Enjoyed the entertainment.... our cabin was very nice and alway kept clean and we got a sweet towel animal on our bed each day...our room steward was great.. The ports were nice, and thank you Carnival Cruise line for the barbecue lunch, very thoughtful. We would definitely cruise again with the Elation and are planning a cruise next year. It was a great time to relax and forget about everything else Read Less

Returning to ship from Key West, the staff was not ready. Water was empty and line were too long. Not enough staff for the return. Any time some making was making a presentation from center on level 4, it was hard to hear. We were sitting on level four 30 away and could not under what we being said. People around us all agreed. We are all asking each what was said. Very poor accoustics!!!(sound) (sp). Your director, Michele was good, but she thinks she better than everyone else. She sounded that nothing would have happen without her!! We ate the Chop House. Nothing special. Tables were only about 15% full and felt rushed to get out of the place. I had problem with bar staff on first day. Our bar staff jump ahead of other staffer to get the order. Once we got the order, we waited on two other people. When I came time for me to sign the bill, he look at me for about 30 seconds before giving me the slip. He must have realized at that time given my card to someone else. I did not realize I had the wrong card until the mustard drill.When to customers service as soon as could after the drill. Customers service was closed. Told to come back in 30 to 60 minutes. Came back, line was about 30 minutes long. I do not waste my vacation time standing in line waiting to solve a problem caused by YOUR staff. Enjoy the stop at Key West, but not listed for comments.
