Great cruise. Everyone is so nice and one thing that is for sure is that your expectations will be exceeded. Loved it. Room service was great entertainment was amazing the food was wonderful. Half moon cay is definitely the most beautiful island I have seen in my life. I definitely look foward on cruising again within the next 12 months. Will love to do it once a year and if possible twice a year.
It was our first Cruize. I had never seen such customer service before. Their entire Crew is so polite and delivery. However we faced difficulties because of very very limited options for vegetarian and we were one of them. Because nobody wants to eat same cheese pizza and fries all the time. I would like suggest them to keep some more varities specially in dinner like noodles, nan(roti/chappati), pasta, lassi, veg grilled sandwich etc. The items I suggested are not completely specific to people from particular country. Many people eat those. So Carnival can think about it and attract more vegetarians as it hard to manage dinner for 5 nights. Also please provide food info along with menu on your website if possible.
I am saying again it was great experience except vegetarian food. FYI. Non vegetarian food lovers will love Carnival.
My sister and I took our 4 teenagers and had an absolutely fantastic trip! The weather was perfect, Key West was fun although needed more time to see everything that we would have liked to and the dolphin outing in Cozumel was amazing! We enjoyed everything about the cruise experience and feel it was a good bargain for the price! We wish the pool could have been a little bigger tho!
I was not impressed with my carnival experience. Out of the cruise lines I have been on, Carnival is my least favorite. There was a lot more motion on this ship than expected and the faster to the fun process that I paid extra for was non existent.
The cruise was great, the food was excellent and the entertainment was good, except that I did not hear any Latin music on the ship. My husband and I love to dance and there was no Latin music, only american music and Caribbean music in Via Marina (deck 9). Also, I I bought 14 pictures and I paid Pixels for them to put the pictures on a flash drive and when I got back to Miami the USB had none of my pictures only pictures of all the Carnival cruise ships. I am very disappointed with the service provided by the photographers or staff from Pixels. They hardly speak English and you can hardly understand them. They are very disorganized.
I must say that I had a wonderful time. I also have an appreciation for my travel agent Amy Clark who was very helpful being that this was my first cruise. The information she provided helped me navigate through the process of going on a cruise.
This is my 5th cruise with Carnival and I am noticing that quality is slipping away. The personnel were incredible...but the food was just ordinary. I miss the days of the culinary displays and the Midnight Buffet- To see the craftsmanship of the culinary display was amazing. I was shocked to see that soda was no longer free option for the kids...not even during meal time...The food in the buffet surpassed the sit down dinner service in flavor. The shrimp cocktail was the size of shrimp salad shrimp and VERY disappointed that the culinary cuisine option was not indicative of the country or area....seriously NO Conch-it is the number one food in the Bahamas- yet we could not get it on the ship!! Very disappointed in the fact that Spin classes were extra $$ and that the "Behind the Scenes" tour was so expensive....would have liked that as an option-The Arcade became an issue and I needed to close my daughters account-games are way to expensive at 1-2$ ....its entertainment with no reward...My Blue Pool towels were used the first day and not returned until the end of the second day-after we returned to the boat after an excursion-even thou I requested new ones-so we opted to buy towels in town. I am glad that the gaming tables had $5 options and the Dealers took the time to teach the game and answer questions-However the Roulette number indicators were not operating and that caused a few arguments with some players and dealers-remove the defective number indicators to save your staff the aggravation of having to constantly explain the issue....Entertainment wise-Comedians were great-However when there is a Dance Party and games on deck---you need to get people more engaged...watching the gender war games was fun...but they only selected 10 people and there were so many others that wanted a chance to play...more interactive games for day at sea would be fun-not everyone likes to sit by the sidelines and watch....Suggestion- mini golf tournament....waterslide races...even a Limbo contest poolside...simply put...a day at sea became boring because there was no interactive activities....Fantasy has a great little stage area on deck that is totally underutilized..... NO WAY should gratuities be charges per person on boat...per room I understand--- mandatory gratuities should just be factored into the cost of the ships sale price.....I rather pay extra 35 per night upfront than get charged on my credit card on last day. I have another Carnival cruise in August-5 day...hoping the issues I had on this cruise are not systematic on all ships....already plan on cutting my excursions because of the gratuities charges...and packing my own crystal light flavor packets since only drink options are ice tea and lemonade..Not every one enjoys getting liquored up and blasted-with empty calories on vacation
