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 there shot 110%. Very outdated. Disgustingly horrific customer service. Every staff member on board was rude and and absolutely no knowledge of anything we asked and barely spoke good ...

The people at the port are rude. My mom had issues withe lost documents, they held her in a room giving her hopes that she was able to embark, one minute before they told us she couldn't embark, lots of confusion and stress created amongst the children as they gave us different directions all the time. Most of the workers do not speak English and are very rude. They do not know how to treat ...

Got a Carnival gift card with some reward points - having never been on a cruise before, decided to give Carnival a try. If I had to describe the cruise in one word, that word would be GHETTO! Most of the passengers looked like escaped convicts and one was even taken off the ship in handcuffs when we arrived back in Miami. To be honest I am surprised it was only one. Embarkation was a ...

This was my first cruise! I will not be going back on another cruise! We decided to book a cruise for our Honeymoon! We purchased Faster to the Fun passes, so we could Embark early. (Haha that was a joke, we had to wait 30 mins because they failed to have us on the list.) Nothing Luxurious about this ship! Totally outdated. Reminded me of a floating Motel 6, The only thing that was worth the ...

The customer service was terrible. I had to re-direct several staff members on their rudeness and lack of customer services. Also my room was nasty. Upon my arrival i called guest services because there was hair all over my sheets and in my shower. If my room was cleaned before my arrival there's no explanation for the hair in my shower or bed. Ewww, I got to the point where i would mark my ...

When I plan a vacation I invest a lot of time and effort.. I look at reviews I research prices. This time was not different.. I knew this was an older ship, I knew we would overnight in Nassau. I have booked cruises on other carriers on ships just as old or older. The safety procedures.. which I have done on the 5 other cruises I have been on was weird.. we were taken to the night club (our ...

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 rooms, lack of amenities in comparison to other cruise lines, less food options, and small/few pools. But this trip was particularly bad. Though budget, what I got for the cost was not ...

If I write everything about this horrible cruise it will never end so only a few of the terrible things that happen and all parents then can make their own choice. First of all when we got in the elevator was broken, then my 10 year old want it to participate in the Kids activities and the Kids Camp was close for renovation so they put all the Kids in the Stripes club and my daughter told it was ...

Everything about this cruise was rock bottom. I've cruised carnival before as well as Norwegian and royal Caribbean . The staff seem bitter and resentful. I spoke to two staff member who both told me their contracts were up soon and they couldn't wait to get off the boat. Per tipping on this boat is a huge mistake. Service overall was rude and disrespectful. And I'm talking about simple ...

Our friends are big cruisers and talked my boyfriend and I into taking our first cruise. We booked the carnival ecstasy at a good price at a great time. Embarkation was fairly flawless. We had checked in online and It was fast, easy and we were on the ship in no time. Unfortunately, our first impression of the ship was very discouraging. The atriums style was out of date 20 years ago. It was very ...
