This was a family vacation that was awesome. The family did not want to go back to the real world. The cruise personnel especially our steward and formal dinning staff were the best. We loved them as family. The only negative thing I can say is that there was a group of 20 young adults on the same cruise that were not supervised as they should have been and not enough time docked in Victoria, Canada. They threw sporting balls overboard and were very rudely. Other than that the cruise was awesome and would definitely do it again.
First time cruising on Carnival, pleasantly surprised with the ship, room, food, crew, entertainment and side trips. You have to be there to experience the views, pictures do no do them justice. Will surely think of them the next time I cruise.
Overall the cruise was good but having to buy 2 drinking packages because of your rules sucks. My husband drinks and because we are over 21 and shared the same room I had to buy a package also to the tune of 805.00. For what? I don't drink. And I think Carnival cruise line "nickels and dimes" you to death. Probably will choose a different cruise line next time.
Alaska on Carnival is a great cruise. There were lots of fun things to do on the ship and even more great things to see in the glacier fjord and ports of call. The care we received from the staff on the ship was beyond our very high expectations.
I enjoyed every minute of my cruise. I thought everything was well organized and planned. Jen was amazing with the amount of energy that she projected. The entertainers performed amazingly and the comedians kept us in stitches. The Alaskan ports of call were all provided amazing sights that I will never forget.
favorite part of the cruise was niceness of the staff. Almost everyone said hello all day long. The rooms were kept very clean by the stewards. The restaurant service at the sitdown meals and the buffets was outstanding.
Things to improve would be the diversity of things to do on the sea days. My kids said the camp on the ship was just ok although they did not spend a lot of time in there.
i would definitely recommend this cruise. Well worth the $.
My husband and I took my mom on this cruise - and we had a blast! Loved the scenery, people, staff and excursions. We were a little concerned about the size of the room with three people, but it worked out great and the balcony was fantastic to see the wildlife and scenery. The staff was wonderful - our cabin steward and dining room waiter always knew ours names and were amazing!
The port stays and excursions were spectacular. The visit to Victoria B.C. was too short, but still a lovely stop.
We are all thrilled to have checked this adventure off our "bucket list"!
