The Gap between Carnival and Princess

Review for Carnival Radiance to Mexican Riviera

We took three Princess cruises in the last 9 months. While all these trips were enjoyable, we didn’t feel the current service level on Princess is as good as what we experienced before Covid epidemic. Since Princess is on the decline and our last Carnival cruise was almost three years ago, we were wondering what has been happening to the previous service gap between Carnival and Princess? Here is ...

NOT WORTH IT! BE PREPARED TO DO YOUR OWN MAINTENANCE IN AN OWNER'S SUITE ):

Forget spending the big bucks for the Owner's Suite unless you are ready to do your own maintenance in this suite (1300). Yes it is nice and spacious. That email you get from the concierge is for show only. Do not expect to get what you ask for. And you will be very lucky if anyone answers the phone. Don't open the sheers as the screws will come out of the railing. The TV, well - you better ...

Great Cruise but some room issues

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 ...

My family has been through a lot the past 18 months and hadn’t been on vacation together since June of 2020. When the opportunity for a short affordable local trip caught my eye, I couldn’t resist. Our prior cruises and points of comparison were on the Norwegian Pearl and the MS Westerdam. We had a great time (two adults, two teens) on Radiance for four nights. We had two ocean view cabins on ...

The Navigator is a Beautiful ship. Easy parking at the port. $20 a day. We had a balcony cabin on deck 12. Cabin 1888. Entertainment on board was Vegas quality. We loved all of the shows. Dining- Main dining was a 6/10. Service great. Food soso. But I am a spoiled by cruising higher end cruise lines. Windjammer buffet was okay. Nothing special. On deck Mexican food was ...

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, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

First time cruiser. Traveled with sister and adult married cousins. All in our 40's and 50's. Not at all impressed. The rooms seemed old. Odd smell coming from tolet upon arrival. There was a large amount of kids and 20 something year olds on ship. Lots of very drunk people everywhere. Felt very much like like a Walmart with an all you can drink bar. Too many kids in the hot tub to enjoy. ...

What happen to the continuous Schedule of events?

The beginning of the planning was soon to be misrepresented by customer service when we called to complete the reservation. The lady on the phone promised to keep our family rooms very close, since we have first time customers from outside the US. When we arrived we noticed that our rooms were on separate floors and on separate ends of the ship. (Major issue) Go back the Carnival of the old with ...

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 ...

Let me start by saying I don't think I should be treated "special", but when you are sold a Grand Suite because of all the supposed wonderful extras and ammenities, then you sort-of have a raised expectation... especially when I have sailed a suite-class on other cruise lines. And because I have often sailed with RC's sister company, Celebrity, I was Platinum level in their Crown & Anchor Society ...
