Lots of disappointment

My partner and I were very excited to travel on one of Carnival’s larger, “newer” ships. Our first cruise was Carnival Conquest in May 2017. This was a disappointment for both of us compared to Conquest. Dream ...

Tons of illness, trashy people, staff lack of communication

This cruise was a very last minute booking to celebrate a 70th birthday and an anniversary. No prior research was done which was out of our ordinary. We usually research, book, then research some more on any ...
