My favorite part of the cruise was my daughter enjoyed herself! That was the main purpose of the cruise!  Our bags didn't get brought to our room so we were told to go down to the customer service area which we did. When we got down there there were drinks spilled all over our bags and empty drink cup sitting on top of them. Which why wouldn't they have the luggage in a secure area?  What would stop someone else from just grabbing our bags like we did??  Then I was truly disappointed in the pictures. Not what was taken but what was charged and there was NO I mean NO deal given to you for how many you bought. They were just going to throw them away anyways (which they ended up doing with some). But to me pictures mean so much. Especially since I am sick and know tomorrow isn't promised. So I ended up spending over $700 just so I could have the pictures. The only deal they could give me was a disc with the pictures on them for $1. Really. That's it......  why don't they offer a CD with all your pictures on it for $100.00. And if they wanted the pictures printed an additional no fee or they can have them printed. Instead of print everything. People should be able to look at the pictures on a computer and click from there the ones they want. They could label the folders just like they label the walls. People found the most just fine. And they would save a ton of money by not printing all the photos and more people wouldn't purchase because it's more affordable. I was talking with one lady and she only had one photo and was trying to decide which one she wanted because she could t afford all 4. That's sad. Someone paid carnival money to go on this cruise and they can't take memories with them because of carnivals prices. And I wish when we bought the cheers package we were told that once you hit your limit of 15 you couldn't purchase any more. I had put my daughter to bed and my husband hit his limit so I gave him my card and they wouldn't let him purchase anymore drinks. That was very frustrating on our end. I am normally not one to complain and easy going but I wanted to share these with you. Whether something changes or we hear back from you guys is another story!!

i Poe you do read all of this and I have hear back. 

 

Thanks,

Melissa

disappointing experience

SadThis was our 4-th time cruising with Carnival and by far, the worse.  

Out of 4 nights, 3 - the cabin wasn't turned up for a night and the towels weren't replaced 3 times.  Out of 4 dinners 3 nights our orders were not served correctly and twice the drinks we ordered for dinner were not brought from a bar - simply forgotten. The excuse the waiter used was that "the bar was very busy at this time".  Selection of food at the breakfast buffet was by far the worse out of all of our 15 cruises that we took. The kids club was about our only positive experience on this trip. Oh, to be fair the "behind the fun" tour was excellent, too. After this trip my wife and I made a definite decision to make sure never to cruise with Carnival again and tp make sure all our family/friends know not to, as well.

The dining service was my favorite part of the cruise. they were excellent.  I was dissapointed that 2 of our girls were 17 and 2 were 18 and thye didnt have a club they could both attend. 18 is too young to be in the clubs with 40 yr old men trying to buy them drinks. they should have the club open if you are still in high school even if you are 18 . the excursion staff was rude, and the guest relations were terribel with hour or longer wait every time. Not acceptable to take that much time out of cruise for questions.

The shore excursions were terrible my daughter got attacked by chickens and she now has bruises and for 300 dollars we could have done so much more we ended up leaving the tour early due to direspectful people and we could have done something was more enjoyable for 20 dollars and another thing the gust services said I would be the only on paying the tips because I was the only one over 18 and yet they still charged my 2 year old baby along win the rest of my underage kids I am not satisfied

I was impressed with the responsive behaviors and protocols for "man overboard", we learned it was only a life vest (thank goodness) but taking action and retrieving all flotation devices what an amazing task and they did so without rocking the passengers.

An amount of small things seem to pile up. From trying to use cabin phone, inop, even had to unplug to stop from ringing. Balcony Glass was very dirty and rails sticky, Door to Balcony had faulty cover over handle almost locked me out on balcony, first morning room service coffee COLD, rest of the mornings warm-ISH at best. Breakfast eggs and potato's cold and some coffee machines not working. At times seemed like half Elevators had INOP lights lit. And what is there to do with 3 hours in the morning in Key west, and during Passover/ Easter, what even may have been open normally was closed. And Dinner started out Okay but by Thursday night, it seemed it was left over night. and also the dancing is nice but when one is waiting on food or a drink etc, seeing ones waiter dancing isn't working. and Over all appearance of ship was Messy and close to dirty. Then we are asked a good amount of ,money for weak gimmick drinks and an espresso.Surprised

Get a stateroom near the back of the ship, and close to elevators. You'll be just a few steps from most everything except the Caribbean Theater.

if you are taking a small 3 nights cruise with a day out on any port, its better to save on cabin with lower price -inside or ocean view. You hardly would have time to enjoy a suite or balcony in such short time space.

We were in the center of the ship right near the atrium...always pretty noisy, but easy to get everywhere.
