Carnival Pride

March 2017 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Bahamas

Entertainment...what entertainment?

I was very happy with this cruise.  The service was terrific.  Cabin Steward and dining staff were the best we have had.  Food was top notch.  Very Clean for an older ship.  The main concerns were the quality of the showroom entertainers.....dancing and singing was no where near "good". The pizza line was too long all the time, and you needed a fog light to get through the casino due to the smoke.   I would go on this ship again without any hesitation. I would just not attend the showroom acts or go to the casino.  The best entertainment was the comedians. Happy

Carnival Magic

July 2016 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western

Pleasantly surprised

After the first night in the Southern Lights Restaurant, and having very poor service, we moved to the Northern Lights and it was total 180.  Service was terrific, wait staff knew our names and drinks every nite.  The experience could not have been better.  Our room steward was also terrific. We did not need to ask for anything.  Our three boys, 21,22,24 all loved the boat.  Night time entertainment was limited as far as shows go.  The illusionist and comics were great, but the magician was doing tricks i learned in middle school.  The magician was also the comedy club manager, so maybe he was just a fill in for a real magic act....  I highly recommend the Carnival magic.   I was not impressed with Belize and will probably stay on the ship next time.  We enjoyed the Paradise beach in Cozumel and the YAYA beach in Costa maya.  made an unexpected trip to Key West instead of Roatan due to a medical emergency.  We were fine with this.

Regal Princess

March 2015 - Regal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Great Upscale cruise

Great cruise. Upscale Décor. Not too many children (actually not geared towards children). Food was terrific. Cabin may be considered smaller than some, but because of the great weather we used our balcony very often. Service in the Lido Deck buffet is terrific. You don't have to worry about getting your own drinks, like on other cruises. This allows you to carry more food...  Great trip and will cruise on Princess again

Carnival Splendor

January 2014 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Bahamas

could be better

i was surprized at the lack of pride the crew members display. Except for our cabin steward, Eddie, most were unfriendly.  Dining service was terrible.  The Lido buffet restaurant was dirty and lines were too long. No sense of urgeny from the crew.

BaltimoreJerry's Tips

Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - the "at sea" brunch is not that great. The BBQ shop on 5th floor is great, just not open too often.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - Enjoyed eating from the buffet area more than the formal dining room. More variety of food.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - long buffet lines. way too expensive excursions. Photos are too expensive. Crew members were not too friendly. they would cut in front of you in halls and not say a word. Dancers appeared to be the second string choices. Juggler was the best act. Cigarette smell from casino is terrible
