My favorite part of the cruise was the feeling of being completelypampered for the entire cruise. The shows were amazing, the nightly dinning was top notch and I do believe that our Steward was a ninja, our cabin was always like it was the first time we walked into it. Had an amazing time!

Mobile to Progresso and Cozumelcamp

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship was nice.  Staff was very nice and professional as usual.  Empress deck proved to be a good fit, since we always do the stairs.  Was disappointed the dress code has been relaxed.  Jeans, t-shirts and ball caps do not add anything to a fine dining experience.  Also disappointed the steak and lobster night has been eliminated.  Seas were very calm.  Very little to do in Progresso, a very poor situation.  Cozumel  is pretty but very commercial.

We had a great time. Two days at sea with two days in port were just right. Plus 5 days meant we didn't overeat. The ship was nice and very clean. We had no complaints. Even getting off the ship was speedy when we got home.

Best Friends Trip

I was pleasantly surprised about the entire trip.  The beds were great,

 the entire staff was  unbelievable.   I don't know how they do it.  Loved the adult only area.  Spa prices were not reasonable, would have enjoyed having a massage but the prices were over the top.

Sailing with Carnival in January 2017

The ship was cold in a lot of public areas and had to wear jackets.   We had requested 6:00 seating  for dining and was given general seating having to wait in line for 30 minutes or more.   The dining room staff got my order wrong several times ( breakfast & diner).

The cruise was great. The cabin service was excellent. We looked forward every evening to dinner. There in the dining room was the best entertainment. And the food was outstanding, a great selection on the menu each night. The omelets were to die for. Guy's burgers moved you back in time. Breakfast through late night snack all were great. Our only disappointment was the entertainment, especially in the theater lounge. We did not take any excursions but stayed on board. We enjoyed the relaxing time. Overall, great cruise!

we had a wonderful time on our cruise!! All the staff on the boat was wonderful. Due to weather, we had to stay on the boat an extra night and day. Even though the ship was rocking so bad on the last day, we appreciated the captain for looking out for our safety. What we did not enjoy was the process of boarding the boat on our first day. The lines to board the shuttle on the off site parking was terrible and needs a worker to direct the lines. Also, our guy that unloaded our luggage was very rude. He commented on how we drove an nice vehicle so we should tip more than we should. Other than us boarding the ship, we had a fantastic time and loved the carnival fantasy.

Don't sail from Mobile, Alabama!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The port of mobile is totally unorganized!  We experienced a departing delay due to fog and it created chaos. There was a six hour delay in boarding ship and the Mobile port was not capable of handling this disruption. The Mobile police are in charge of directing traffic and are completely rude and incapable of directing traffic on a walking path. The entire cruise experience started out bad because of the port's total inability to organize every aspect from parking, embarkation lines and security checks. This was our first cruise and most likely our last. Every employee aboard the ship was very friendly and very good at their job. The cruise director did make some off color innuendos during family oriented shows that were not well received.
