Food was ok but almost exact same thing EVERY day on Lido. The MDR’s served the same items just a tad more formal for the vast majority of the menu… Quality/temp etc. all sub par but you could eat at Guys burgers or tacos/burritos and both were great. Cabin steward and photographers also terrific. Cruise director made a few announcements and I saw him briefly once - other than that no ...

8-day family cruise, mid-50's couple with 19yr old son. Sailed out of Miami with port stops in Aruba, Curacao, La Romana (DR), and Amber Cove (DR). This was our 10th cruise as a family. We've sailed on Disney, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian. This was our 2nd cruise on Carnival. The first Carnival cruise was likely our worst - we weren't sure we would sail Carnival again, but the itinerary and ...

Both good and bad – this was the 2023 repositioning cruise from Miami to Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao returning to Bayonne, NJ. Overall, the cruise was excellent however there are certainly some very significant highlights to mention, both pros and cons. First, we were in Aqua Class. Great location at the top of the ship Aft. No one above us and the buffet and outdoor bar below but the cabin was ...

I’ve been on over 13 cruises Carnival is the most that I’ve been on. I’ve been on Norwegian royal Caribbean carnival, but I’m looking to go on another cruise for next year again. So I’m looking for a new adventure. I enjoyed the cruise this time after Covid. I’ve noticed a lot of things have changed for the better. The signing up for the breakfast through the phone waiting on your table for the ...

Our cruise included 6 adults, 4 of witch are seniors, and 3 children, ages 6,12,15. We had an early check-in and were on the ship around 10:30. The room would be available around 2:00. The pools were available, the water slides opened at 12:00, and food was available at several places. We picked this cruise ship for a couple reasons, first activities for the kids, 2 water slides, one for young ...

We went on a 9-day caribbean cruise with our family of 4. We had 2 rooms - balcony and an outside stateroom. I'll go through the entire cruise. Embarkation Shockingly simple. We set an 11-11:30AM time to board and it went perfectly. We parked at the cruise terminal, grabbed our luggage and walked across the street to drop off our luggage. From there it was a short stop to get our seapasses ...

The room is as to be expected, small, we don't spend much time in there. Was always very clean and the staff was always pleasant. No complains with the room as I said it was as to be expected and fulfilled it's job perfectly. The food, the main dinning room hall food was horrible. They used below "Choice" grade meat which you can't even buy in your local supermarket. It's the kind of meat ...

The ship was big and there was a lot to explore, and for some background, I only have experience with Carnival, and the other ships were Magic, Dream, and Fantasy. We were lucky enough to snag "Faster to the Fun" and we believe it was worth it - even just for the embarkation/debarkation. My husband and I were excited to turn to "Gold" status on this cruise, but in actuality, the only major ...

Grandeur of the seas Welcome to 1995 Ship is old, rusty run down old bucket . Cabins desperately need refurbishing. The dining room is bearly tolerable with higher ups running around with Walky talkies very loud. The poor waiters are constantly asking you if everything is OK if you like every bite of food that you take, it’s a bit much. Classless crowd of people think nothing of ...

I traveled with my family(husband, 3 kids, sister, nephew and mother) we were in 3 different cabins and they could not accommodate us to be closer together, we were all in completely opposite sides of the ship. I was surprised to find out everything was additional (restaurants, coffee, drinks child sitting). Overall disappointed and surprised at the lack of entertainments. Needless to say the 4 ...
