I have always wanted to see the Panama Canal and it did not disappoint .My girls and my Grand daughter decided to to an all girl Cruise. The Crew was all amazing. My Stateroom Steward Aris was the best. As was the people he worked with always with a smile and a greeting. The ship was clean and well laid out. The entertainment was the best the singers and dancers were the best and when you seen ...

Our first Carnival cruise that my TA set up for us almost 2 years ago. We had the Grand Suite, which was more than we ever imagined! The service was excellent and always courteous. The foods and entertainment especially Polaris I could listen for hours was beautiful! Chef's Table was outstanding and totally worth it. Veterans appreciation and Veterans Tea gatherings was a nice touch too. Loved my ...

Could have been a great cruise except for the noise volume everywhere.

I've started writing this while still on board with a few days yet to go on our cruise so that everything is fresh in mind, and will finish after we leave the ship. My wife and I booked a Mini Suite and with it came some special offers which we accepted. Don't feel for a moment that what you are paying for your 'Guest Fare' is anywhere near your total expense. Here what was on our ...

We chose this cruise to sail with friends and because t was a good time to be away from Illinois. We love cruising on NCL and this cruise was no exception. There was plenty of room by the pool if you wanted sun, or no sun. We enjoyed the entertainment, as well. We never experienced a problem with service, of any kind. We found the bartenders were were very attentive. I was pleased with the ...

We went on this Cruise because it was the itinerary we wanted for the Panama canal but we will never go on carnival again! We will be sticking to Royal Caribbean. The shore excursions were great but pretty much anything having to do with onboard sucked! The shows were so loud I couldn't stay for any of them, the food was not good, I ordered breakfast to my room every morning with extra cereal ...

Enjoyed this cruise, but there were some negatives which NCL need to take onboard. Embarkation - we stayed overnight with NCL and got an organised bus to the terminal, which allowed us to skip the long lines outside. Inside was still a trial. NCL have outsourced to Intercruise, who don't appear to be geared-up to handle the known number of passengers. Cruise Director - English girl who would ...

Second time I cruised with Norwegian. My only three "real" complaints are : 1. the public rooms are very COLD. The Library felt like a meat locker. I think the cause is the staff is so "fully dressed." 2. I don't think the "specialty" restaurants are worth the price, $120 for a very average French meal, and $80 for Italian, and my wife's was inedible. 3. The theater talent and shows were ...

Disappointment with accommodations

Chose cruise based on itinerary, date and price. Our inside cabin 11579 was little more than a closet. No chair or anywhere to sit except bed. I was embarrassed as friends could not visit as No standing room either. No bathroom ammenties included and the worst toilet tissue ever, we bought our own. We felt like second class persons on this cruise while many of our friends enjoyed upgrades to ...

Used to cruise Carnival all the time. Have cruised other boats in past few years. Will not go back to Carnival again after this experience. This boat needs to be completely redone or drydocked right away. It is dated, it is not maintained. It is dirty, dated and dull. Also, Carnival really missed the boat (pun intended) on the Panama Canal. They had no information leading up to the ...

We chose this cruise because we had always wanted to go through the Panama Canal. We only could take two weeks off from work, so this was the cruise we chose. This was a repositioning cruise for the Miracle, but Carnival also billed it as a Panama Canal cruise. PROS: Our stateroom (an obstructed view balcony) was large enough for two people and kept well cleaned and stocked by our ...
