Great Cruise!

As a prior passenger commented, we were also somewhat concerned about the incident that took place, a week before our cruise, whereby an elevator repair man tragically lost his life. As if that wasn't enough, we ...

Family Celebration

Our trip included our family of 4 including our son and daughter who were 4 and 6 at the time of the cruise. Before the trip began, it didn't start off well. We booked over the phone with Carnival and were told we ...

First Time Cruiser Impressions

Were are recent "Empty Nesters" and travel frequently, just never did the cruise thing. Boarding was better than we anticipated and really easy but we sprung for priority boarding - worth the extra $50 for us. ...

Not sure what the bad reviews are about

Cabin was extremely clean as was the rest of the ship. Staff was very attentive to making sure all needs were being met. Staff was all around ship cleaning. We were asked if we wanted room cleaned in morning or ...

Blood on Sheets, Mold, Bugs, Horrible Service, and More

I don't even know where to begin. First let me start by saying, typically we only cruise on royal caribbean (one of the most amazing cruise lines) but we decided to give carnival a shot. I can say 100% they blew ...

Overall Very Nice for an Inexpensive Long Weekend

This cruise was very inexpensive so our expectations were a little lower than they normally would be. But the staff overall offered service that was above and beyond. We were traveling with our two small children. ...

What the heck others experienced?

This was my first cruise and I was terrified about the trip, I have read the other reviews and I didn't experience anything other than fun and entertainment. Maybe they picked the wrong time of year to cruise. I'm ...

Cruise was OK, still had lots of fun.

I like to give detailed reviews on my cruises because the more detailed it is the more helpful I think it would be for other cruisers: We went to the C. Ecstasy from Oct. 30th - Nov. 2nd/2015. FOOD: The food ...

A little too rowdy

My first cruise. Husband and I wanted a quiet weekend away that was budget-friendly and many friends had suggested cruising; we chose Carnival because it was the cheapest of the lines leaving the weekend we needed ...

Fun Getaway Weekend!

I live in Fort Myers, FL so the drive over to Miami is only about 2 1/2 hours for me. For that reason we booked this as a fun, family weekend getaway and an opportunity to take our 7 year old son on his first ...

This is the last time, Carnival.

While planning a girl's weekend recently, the bride picked Carnival because she had heard about the "younger" crowd and wanted to have a good time where the cruise was geared toward younger people. Apparently it was ...

Great Cruise...As Always

I will say right up front that we are Carnival people through and through. We have tried all the other major lines and, for our money, Carnival is the only way to go. We work hard for our money, and we believe in ...

I've previously been on a Carnival cruise, and had a decent experience- good, friendly service, overall good food, a clean room with no issues in it. The cheaper Carnival cruises all seem to be budget cruises- small ...
