Underwhelmed by the food and staff

This is my first cruise, and honeymoon. I spent a good amount of money on the room with the specialty dining package, drink package, and excursions. From what I’ve been told the food is really good and drinks ...

Dawn to Dusk Sun & Fun

We are loyal NCL Cruisers having sailed only with NCL. This is our 2nd time on the Dawn.... a great mid size ship..... big enough to have lots of amenities but small enough not be overwhelming. Perhaps because ...

No "Bohemian" on board this Rhapsody

Did that get your attention? Well In a Nut Shell, a Bohemian is a person living an unconventional lifestyle. This however has no significance in the title of this review although i figured it might get some ...

We have cruised the Caribbean with RCCL, Celebrity, and Princess (the best, prior to this cruise); this was our first cruise on NCL, and we chose it as it was going to Antigua, where we wanted to take a cooking ...

Overall good experience

We were with a group of 17 couples who met from across the country and cruised together for a week. This was our first experience with Carnival, but we have cruised twice before. We stayed in a Grand Suite and ...

First time cruise was a pleasant surprise.

We had never been on a cruise before and chose this ship because we felt smaller would be better plus the ports appealed to us. Admittedly we were sceptical whether cruising would be for us and though we are still ...

Don't believe everything you read.

After reading all the reviews I was VERY worried about going on this cruise. Let's be honest - they don't sound so great. Here's my take: Nothing is perfect - It's all about what you make of it. This was our second ...

Legendary Cruise 11/17/2019

We chose this cruise because we love Tampa and because my aunt and her husband recently moved to Roatan... we wanted to visit them. The price was right for the two of us (went without kids this time). We've found ...

I traveled with my husband on this cruise to celebrate a birthday. We had a porthole cabin which accommodated two, at the most. Upgrades to the Paradise with the 2018 refurbishing now includes an in-drawer ...

Somewhat disappointing

We chose this cruise because it went to two of our favorite ports: Grand Cayman and Cozumel. This was our third cruise, second time on Carnival. The first Carnival cruise was 5 1/2 years ago, to the Southern ...

Enjoyed this ship overall. One of the best casinos/dealers I’ve experienced although the drink service there was virtually non-existent. Pools need to be refurbished. Cabin was in excellent shape for an older ...

Let me preface this review by disclosing that my wife and I are Platinum Level with Princess so that is our comparison. Although we were only Ruby level, the boarding process was quick and easy we arrived for our ...

Embarkation in Tampa on the Carnival Miracle was the fastest and smoothest of our 10 cruises we have been on. We literally where on the ship enjoying buffet 15 mins after our Uber dropped us off at the port. No ...

This was our first cruise EVER with any cruise line. Our expectation when we purchased the cruise from Costco was that everything was included. Clearly not the case. Little things kept on adding up. For instance the ...
