I enjoyed the on board activities, but the substitute cruise director should be changed. Mikey wasn't there, and I didn't care for his substitute. There were a few others that I felt would do a much better job. D.J. Surge, and Tara were both wonderful, and I am not sure why one of them could not be utilized. The Caribbean sounds on the Lido deck was too loud, with too much treble. Hated walking through there, much less to sit out there. Also, the seams in the water slide make it painful to go down. The food was mediocre. That being said, I thought the staff friendly, and everything seemed to be clean. I enjoyed my cruise.

Fabulous trip

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We decided to take this trip to celebrate our anniversary!  We received an added bonus of being able to bring in the New Year on this cruise as well. We really enjoyed all of the entertainment onboard. We managed to book an excursion thru this site as well.  The electric bike ride in Cozumel was more than we expected. The guide was great and well worth the little cost. We will definitely consider using this site in the future. We highly recommend it to all.

Our Vacation

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

New Year's Eve party was our favorite event...on top of the daily entertainment.  The housekeeper was very nice and professional!! Everyone was very helpful, except the formal dinners, they were nice but very slow to serve the table.  Photo's were very expensive!!! We spent almost 300 of pictures, no discounts or photo packages.

Overall Ok Cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was ok. Cruise director was high energy and really great. The ship was entirely too cold. I was wishing for my winter coat at dinner each night. They did not have enough options for meals/food availability after shore excursions. The lines were unbelievable since so few options were available. The food was mediocre. The staff was great. We really enjoyed our cruise but felt they nickle and dime you around every corner. There were many limitations to the CHEERS beverage program which was very different than our experience on another cruise line. There were extra charges for almost everything. Its fine as long as you have set your expectations ahead of time.

Grand old ship

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Because this is an older Ship Without a lot of balcony rooms the public areas are very nice lots of outdoor spaces and Decks that you can walk on and view the beautiful ocean. I really enjoyed that aspect of the ship.  The shows were very good.  The food was nice and hot - this can be a problem on some Carnival ships but not this one.  The only reason I am not giving this Cruise 5 Stars is due to some minor issues with the elevators.  Which I hope has been fixed.  Happy

Gorgeous weather and relaxing cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very much enjoyed this cruise; the staff was all energetic, friendly and accommodating.  Ship was in good shape, our room was spacious and we really enjoyed having 2 portholes in the room.    

Both ports of call were appealing; with Cozumel obviously being more touristy and tasteful than Progresso.  Friendly people everywhere; we were never bothered or harassed.  

The weather was sunny, warm, and the perfect amount of humidity to freshen up the Northerners from Winter Blues.  

The only thing we would like to have been aware of beforehand were two service charges added to our bill at the end of the cruise.  We definitely appreciated the staff's hard work and planned to reward them accordingly; however a surprise 100+$ on the bill was a shock.  

Overall a great vacation.  Shout out to the cruise director Mikey who really put in his all and united the "Carnival Fantasy Family".

This was an excellent cruise.  The Cruise Director "Mickey" made it the most memorable cruise of all and I have had 10 + cruises in my life.

 

All was great.

Carnival Junior Suite

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Poor food quality, older ship & not enough signs for new cruisers.  Priority members are not treated fairly.  We were present to leave ship 20 minutes early with all paperwork in hand.  The staff told us they already took the other cruisers to the dock and we had to leave with the non-priority cruisers.  This means we paid for a suite, but was unable to use any benefits due to the staff.  Also, excursions were cancelled due to not enough cruisers booking and we booked a last minute excursion.  IT WAS HORRIBLE.  WILL NEVER USE CARNIVAL AGAIN!
