It was very good. The food was excellent, except they advertised WHOLE lobster. They advertised a WHOLE lobster for additional 20 dollars. But they only served the tail. It was not worth the extra $20.00. I complained to the Maitre D and my account was credited.
I haven't cruised in five years, so my hubs and I decided to cruise for our anniversary trip. Boarding the ship was ok. Even though there were a lot of people, it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd would be. Debarking was another story. We decided to carry all of our luggage bc a piece was lost when we checked in and we'd be able to get off of ship first... mistake. It's such an unorganized process. We spent hours sitting in halls and fighting our way through an angry crowd down stairs who apparently had the same idea as we did. On my next cruise, I'll check as much luggage as possible getting off and I'll go to dining area, wait for everyone else to get off ship, then I'll disembark. About the room. I chose the cheapest option when booking which was a window room where I'd let them pick the room for me. Huge mistake! Ended up on main deck at the very very back end of the ship. Never will I do that again. Your sleeping right on top of the loud engines and the motion sickness and post cruise motion sickness is real! The bathroom wasn't clean when we first got there. But our steward Dennis cleaned it for us very well. The food was better than ok, but not great lol. Most of the staff was friendly. The spa was expensive. Drinks are what you would pay in a restaurant. Comedian wasn't good. On shore excursions were kind of pricey, but we found a reasonable one that had snorkeling included for like 60 per person. Overall experience wasn't bad. I would go again, but maybe a diff ship.
This was our tenth cruise and worst one of all. There were so many things that have deteriorated since our last cruise several years ago that we may never cruise again. Plain ship; extremely poor food service and food quality; excursions far too expensive for the value and extremely crowded to utilize. Our friends have booked there next cruise on Norwegian because of their bad experiences lately with Carnival. They even removed the evening chocolates from the pillow and doubled the prices on everything it has gotten so bad. Was a complete waste of money compared to our last nine cruises.
Every thing was excellent. Excellent food service in the main dining room.
we will be there again. I wished you would of had some kind of event in Freeport from the carnival. We had to go to the other side of the Freeport for the beach. Other wise everything was great. Thank you.
My husband and I decided to go on this Carnival Cruise for our honeymoon. With both of us being first-time cruisers, we were not sure what to expect, but Carnival definitely impressed us. Every staff member from the dining staff, to the entertainers, to housekeeping, worked to make this an incredible vacation for us. We were completely taken care of, and we did not have to lift a finger all week! We also enjoyed our ports of call (Nassau and Freeport), as we had booked two excursions that allowed us to experience the islands. Overall I would absolutely recommend a Carnival cruise. We are already looking forward to our next one!
Cruising from Jacksonville was very easy and convenient as usual. The cruise was a vey good way to relax and enjoy the sun. The amenities were great as usual and the crew were very friendly and accommodating ,seeing to every need. The only complaint was the music was excessively loud and very hard on the ears. The shows were very good but again very loud.
We had a really good time on this cruise. Nassau was great. We went to Cabbage beach which was right next to Atlantis. We paid $8 round trip per person for a taxi. Once we got to the beach we were able to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for $40 and went Jet Skiing for $60. Our belonging were safe and I did not feel uncomfortable at all.
My family enjoyed their first cruise with carnival cruise line. We went to the Bahamas for two days and a total of three days at sea. My seven year old son didn't want to come off the ship. The food was great and the service was awesome. I would sail again
Just a short drive to Jacksonville, and you can disappear over the horizon to relax and enjoy. The staff were very friendly and anticipated our needs. Nassau was just as busy as normal but still got to do some shopping, and remained on board at Half Moon Cay to have the ship to ourselves.
An enjoyable trip for our first cruse, the Ship was much nicer and cleaner than I expected, on par with any luxury hotel. The Crew and staff went out of their way to insure that everyone had a pleasant trip. The stops were very pleasant with no surprises. Overall I would say that I is something we will do again.
Purchase a (waterproof) camera! We loved capturing photos of our time onboard, as well as our excursions. When we went swimming with the dolphins and kayaking, we were able to take our camera in the water with us, giving us amazing photos and video!
Also, bring an air freshener for your cabin!
We brought our GoPro and used it for our excursions and just while sitting around the pool to take pictures and videos! They turned out amazing! I also brought a mini fan to use in the room. Best idea I had!
