Been retired for 8 years and decided to go back to work part-time, so I can pay for all these cruises we've been going on !!

Carnival Conquest

September 2019 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest

Typical good Carnival Cruise.

Of all of our Carnival cruises this one would rate in about the middle. We've had some better and some not as good. The biggest disappointment was the atmosphere in the evenings with the extremely low key music and entertainment (other than the stage show). This may not be an issue with some cruisers, but it was with us, as we never got in that really good partying mood. But, it was still fun with some good ports, and overall good service.

Carnival Miracle

April 2018 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Miracle

Carnival Glory

March 2017 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Glory

Carnival Valor

October 2016 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Valor

Good ship, but some issues

The ship was in drydock earlier in the year and had numerous upgrades. We've been on 6 cruises with Carnival and this one would rate about average with the other cruises. Nothing really outstanding about the cruise or no serious issues. I will give a thumbs up to the crew. We had an outstanding cabin steward and there were some exceptional bar servers and waiters.We spend a lot of time in the casino and there was a band that played nightly that was the best band we've heard on any cruise ship. As with past Carnival cruises, the food is average at best. We preferred the buffet on most nights due to quicker service and the quality of the food is about the same in our opinion. I do recommend the steakhouse. It was some of the best filet mignon I've ever had. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. We enjoy Carnival for the value and its "Fun Ship" reputation.

Carnival Miracle

Carnival Miracle

Good cruise, but not great

We always cruise with Carnival and have always been satisfied with them. The Miracle was a good cruise, especially being a smaller ship with less passengers. Although, this has an affect on the number of the crew as the bar service was slow most of the time. The shows were underwhelming, but the Comedy Club was outstanding! The ports of call were all good, especially Mahogany Bay and the beach excursion with Carnival. I would recommend the Miracle, especially if you haven't cruised on a spirit size ship with Carnival. It's a different experience.

Caribbean Cruise, Carnival Glory

The cruise was overall very good. The service on the ship was outstanding! The drink prices were less than I anticipated. The food in the main dining area was good but not great. We had dinner in the Emerald SteakHouse one night and the food there was fantastic! I was disappointed with some of the ports. I didn't care for Costa Maya or Roatan very much. Although, Cozumel and Grand Cayman were very good. There are plenty of activities onboard to keep you busy. I do think that Carnival should expand on their shows more. They have scaled down on the production since our last cruise and the shows are way too short. In conclusion, this was my second Carnival cruise and my wife's third, and we will definitely sail with Carnival again!!

Cruise tips

Miami, Florida

Miami port has always been great for us. We don't go any excursions, and usually stay in Ft. Lauderdale the night before.

Carnival Conquest

Carnival Conquest

The Conquest is still a good ship for one of the older ones in the fleet.

Carnival Miracle

Carnival Miracle

The ship is smaller than most of the rest of Carnival's fleet and less crowded. It never seemed crowded as the rest of our cruises. This was a great plus!!

Tampa, Florida

We stayed overnight in a local hotel but didn't experience the city at all.

Cozumel, Mexico

We've been here numerous times before and just enjoyed some of the local eateries/bars and shopped a lot.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

We did a beach excursion through Carnival and this was outstanding. We had a private beach with lounge chairs provided. The beach was excellent with food and drink close by and security people in the area to watch your personal belongings while you were in the water.

Carnival Valor

Carnival Valor

The ship is real nice, but the food and service in the main dining room needs to be improved upon. The staff on the ship was great and overall a good cruise. Carnival's value is the best !

Carnival Glory

Carnival Glory

Definitely check out the Serenity area on the ship, for adults only, quiet and peaceful area
