Carnival, the " Motel 6" of cruise lines delivers a comfortable and inexpensive experience. The food is good, the entertainment mostly only fair, the cabin bed comfortable and the ports of call limited in time and variety. This is totally reasonable considering the cost. I would hope Carnival would pay their workers more and meet higher labor standards for the people who take care of us on board...

Loved it and want to do it again

I had a fabulous time on the cruise ship! Loved being in Mexico and wish I had more time there. Although I had fun I did think it was a bit long for us and I got so sick on the way back because of how much movement there was on the ship. All and all a great time! Favorite part on the ship was the gambling, the shows and the all adult pull and hot tub! Very great for relaxing!

The first cruise we were ever on was on Carnival.  The service,activities and food we very impressive.  This cruise was the complete opposite.  Every thing seemed to have an up charge.  The Internet connection was terrible even though you had to pay for it.  You couldn't even print your boarding pass with out having to pay for Internet time.  The food was ok but Nick and Nora's was NOT worth the $80.00 additional charge.  On the positive side your staff was most courteous and helpful.  The ship however does need some major renovations.  In our suite the drapes were so faded they should not have been even on the Windows.  The deck and furniture on it was filthy.  I do not feel the cruise was worth the price we paid.  We probably not sail on carnival again.

Wonderful First Time Experience

The cruise was amazing, with the friendliest and most helpful staff!  I loved getting a different towel animal each day, every time we came back to the room it was a surprise.  I had a lovely spa experience getting a facial, which was extremely relaxing.  The food was great, both on the Lido deck and in the dining room.  The wait staff and dining room crew were fun and personable, and had some awesome dance moves!  I loved that there was always something different going on, and Cruise Director Jaime did an A+ job on entertainment!

first days not good

I will not recommend this cruise for the decorations, customer services lack of explanations and patience, not information in other languages, no easy accessibility for seniors. I think what It made it not pleasant and smooth trip was because it was our first time in a cruise. Please ask questions if you are a first timer.

My favorite part of the cruise was that there was always something to do and something to eat!! That being said one thing I wish was a little different was how the exact same meals were repeated everyday. I understand that it would be hard to have variety for that many people but I just felt like the last couple days on the ship the food was dried out and old. I would definitely recommend this to other, I enjoyed it and can't wait to cruise again!!

Mexican Riviera

Enjoyed having two days in Cabo San Lucas. Having the two days gave us a chance to learn the port the first day and then day two, we were familiar with things and didn't waste any of  our shore time.  With that being said, I hate tendered ports.  I know they can not be helped, but 3 plus hours of our shore time on day one was dealing with getting off the ship and then getting back on the ship.  I would have liked to have been a tad better informed about how far away old town Puerto Vallarta and beach access were from the dock.  Maybe I should have studied up better on this port, but a cab was definitely a necessity. Really enjoyed that area of the town.  Overall, this was a fun and relaxing trip.

Always get a balcony--it is so relaxing to set out on the deck in private and enjoy the view!

Don't miss a night at Nick and Nora's steakhouse! If you're a couple that doesn't want to be around kids, this is not your ship. Parents with kids of all ages, enjoy! The kids will love it!
