We took this cruise for our 40th anniversary.  The cruise was wonderful.  The staff was excellent and the food was great.  We would cruise with Carnival again.

An Amazing Experience

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The staff and crew were all outstanding hosts and hostesses. They made me and my husband feel at home and very welcome. They were very friendly and pleasant and made the cruise even better. My cabin stewards, along with the dining personnel took our cruise experience to another level because of their professionalism, personal care and excellent work. They were very dedicated to making sure our every need was taken care of and took a personal interest in caring for us. Thank you to everyone!

 

My one recommendation is that either upon arrival or departure, we be given a list of names of everyone who assisted us during the cruise. This will help us to be able to properly recognize particular individuals that deserve recognition. Unfortunately, there are a few that I would have liked to recognize personally; however, I cannot remember their names or how to spell their names properly.

Not a cruise for a foodie

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The balcony room was nice, and our steward was wonderful. Some of the other staff were not as friendly, and we were surprised at the lack of smiles and greetings from staff- particularly wait staff and those at the photo counter. The food wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. Desserts had zero flavor, Lido deck buffet uninspiring. Shows were good, comedians not so much. Getting on and off the ship at ports was quick and easy.

Alaska Tour

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

My favorite part of the cruise would be divided between the daily life on the ship & the fascinating tours.

The ship's staff was above & beyond any expectation - they were overly polite, friendly, & perfectly mannered.  Our group's dining staff - Cid, Krisdianto, & Francis - were exceptional.

The tours around the port cities & native village were very interesting.  Loved the Salmon Bake & shipped fresh salmon home.

Would definitely recommend the vacation to anyone.

Breath taking

The ship was older than I expected, looked like it needed some TLC; the lido deck food good enough.  Five Stars -- absolutely.  Our cabin steward, Lester, was outstanding.  I wanted to bring him home with me!  Our dining room service team, Fernando, Roque, Nureemung and Jamal, were absolutely wonderful. (Thanks for the dancing entertainment - you were awesome!)  All of them catered to us above and beyond.  Our excursions were well organized and provided us with unbelievable views of nature in all forms.  Already thinking of returning to experience other activities that were available.

We had a great first cruise and would definitely take another

There was so much going on on the ship and so many things to see, we thought we were going to have down time, but rarely took any.  Then realized we could 'choose to do nothing' and that was fun too.

The food was great, We ate in the formal dining room all but one night and enjoyed our tablemates and made good friendships in the process.

Our adventure was topped when the ship had a malfunction that caused it to turn suddenly at 90 degrees.  Talk about getting your adrenaline going. . . but in reality it was no worse than hitting an air pocket on a flight.  Over all a wonderful trip.Big Smile

Ship almost flipped over

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Let me just start by saying Alaska is beautiful. You will see some of the most beautiful, amazing country that you have ever seen. Skagway and Juneau are incredible.they have a postcard feel and are not short on beautiful scenery. Tracy Arm Fjord is cold but the glaciers true beauty is difficult to capture in pictures. Ketchikan is a different story. It was dirty and smelled of old urine. This would be a good stop to schedule an excursion, we did not since we had in Skagway and Juneau. The cruise was mediocre at best. The decor of the cabin was very outdated. This was our first time to cruise and we didn't know to ask where you were on the boat. It makes a difference. Also the gratuities are added to everything you buy, EVERYTHING!  The alcohol is over priced. The food on the buffet was lukewarm at best. The food in the dining room was very good and the service was top notch. The housekeeper for our room was excellent as well. While cruising to Victoria the ship had a failure of the azipod compulsion system which almost caused the boat to tip over. We were in the dinning room on the 9th floor when it happened and dishes, food, chairs and people were flying everywhere. It took the captain and the ship director a very long time to announce what was happening or even that everything would be okay. They did not send staff around to check on people it was a total mess. They also charge you $12 a day per person on top of all the other gratuity. We left the ship with over $800 in charges. This was an expensive trip. I am glad we had the extra $$$. Since this was our first cruise it will be a long while before we get back on a ship, if we do it wouldn't be carnival.

The obstructed view was very obstructed, a lot more than we were lead to believe. I would never do that again.  The incident with the cruise ship having a propulsion problem that caused it to tilt was unsettling.  Overall, though it was a decent cruise but I do have reservations about Carnival in the future.

Try to have them seat you farther into the dining room . There is a lot of traffic up by the main door.

Room Service coffee in the morning is a must, it starts the day off right.

We actually did something that we have seldom done before. We ate most of our breakfasts in the main dining room. It is really better than on the Lido deck.
