Just returned from 4 night cruise to Cozumel on the Valor from New Orleans. This was my 4th Carnival cruise. The 1st 3 were wonderful but I was very disappointed with this one. I’m a 45y/o woman traveling with 3 teenagers celebrating their high school graduation. My biggest complaint was the lack of air conditioning in our cabin. We were on the 8th deck with a balcony. We noticed the heat as ...

My wife and I have been on 16 cruises each, inclusive of this one. We had a balcony room on Deck 6 fore. The room was excellent, although it lacked air conditioning the first two nights. They made it up by turning the room into a meat locker for the rest of the cruise. Our cabin steward was truly outstanding. We ate breakfast and lunch in the lido buffet restaurant on Deck 9 and dinner in the ...

It was time to get back to cruising - we drove this time - parking was literally above the terminal. Pre-trip testing was a worry, but the combination of eMed proctored test kits and Verifly made it easy. Take pictures of vaccine cards and test results and they review them- green check marks are good. Check in was super-fast and easy. No waiting or lines. We were avoiding packed indoor ...

We had not traveled on a Carnival cruise in about 8 years. Unfortunately, the level of service, amenities, and just plain safety concerns were much to be desired. Passengers were 'forced' to use the "Carnival Hub App" for all information. Wouldn't have been too bad if it worked. Many passengers had issues probably because of cell phone provider incompatibilities. We chose Anytime Dining and ...

I hope that the difficulties Carnival had on this cruise were the result of the pandemic period, and that time will heal these issues, but this was the worst cruise I've ever been on. So many things, large and small...the ship couldn't go to to one of the scheduled ports (my favorite port) because of mechanical problems, folks we sailed with had no hot water for about a day, food was way below ...

All the staff were lovely, and deserved better from the management who have made some awful business decisions. We've cruised with Celebrity and were keen to compare as we have never swerved from Celebrity before. As the say ' One and done'! Never book Norwegian again. And it was a similar price to Celebrity. Embarkation at NOLA was just awful....shouty officials and queues a mile long. 2 and ...

5 of us traveled on the Casinos at Sea promotions. When we arrived at the port, the wait time was over 1 1/2 hours to get to a desk to check in. There was no priority line for my mother, who was in a wheel chair, nor the Casinos at Sea invited guests. It was stifling hot in the indoor area where the line was. We finally were able to board the ship, and went straight to O'Sheehan's, which never ...

First time on Norwegian. Have cruised on Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. Had high hopes for this cruise line as they are suppose to be more “elite”. Let’s start with the positives. The STAFF is what stops this from being a completely negative review. They were all so nice, friendly and made you feel welcome. The cabin was okay. Same as other cruise lines. Unfortunately that’s ...

First look at the false advertisement NCL claimed to offer rock climbing and even currently they say this is offered on the breakaway, however you can see from my recent April 2022 photo the rock wall is gone. It was apparently removed during the covid-19 cruise stoppage period. They also closed the splash academy for child care and closed the kiddie splash pad swim area and blamed the closure on ...

The Best for Solo Cruising

NCL is the best for solo travelling - best pricing and inclusions, solo cabins if desired, great solo hosts and nightly solo gatherings at 5:30 in special bar/lounge. Host can get any number of solos into different restaurants, shows, etc and the best host I have had was this week’s Patrick. He was fantastic and as part of entertainment team, he was great for trivia and other events. Could not ...
