Carnival Glory

October 2015 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival Glory

This is my 6th time on the Glory and it has never disappointed me. Embarkation was fast and efficient  The first thing I recognized (from being on the ship in January) was the new carpeting in the elevator and stairwell areas.  Very Nice! The ship is very easy to navigate and was constantly being tended to by the dedicated cleaning members.  Elmer, my cabin steward and his team, kept the room impeccably clean. Abundant food selections for every taste.  Brian and Milos from the Alchemy Bar were very attentive, personable and entertaining.  There was plenty of on board activities for all ages. Debarkation was a breeze.  Not being a smoker, the only one negative, for me, was the smoke in the casino. It somewhat dampened my enthusiasm for playing the slots. Carnival is trying their very best with having air purifiers sitting around the room, but they did not seem to keep up with the amount of smoke in the area.  All in all, this was a very fun cruise, and I have already booked this ship for April 2016.

Carnival Fantasy

November 2014 - Carnival Fantasy to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival Fantasy 11/15/2014

I have been on 25 Carnival cruises, and this by far was my least favorite. Embarkation and debarkation at the Port of Charleston is painstaking compared to Port Canaveral, Ft Lauderdale or Miami. Stood outside in the freezing cold for about 1 hour, then sat on a bus for about another hour until the ship was ready for boarding. The 'terminal' is very small and does not lend itself to the number of passengers boarding the ship. The Fantasy itself was very clean and easy to navigate.  The food was bland, Lido salad bar was very limited and had same items every day. Main Dining room service at times was slow. The majority of the crew appeared to be in the 'training' mode. While there weren't a lot of kids on the ship, those that were thought that constantly running up and down the public walkways was their entertainment. No security to discipline. Only 1 pool, very, very crowded on sea days. Nightly entertainment lacked the high quality that some of the bigger ships have. The trivia team, Jessica, Michael, Alan and Sunny were the hi-light.  Very funny and actually acted like they really enjoyed what they were doing.  The length of stay on Turks and Caicos was way too short. Half Moon Cay is a beautiful island stop. Nassau, in my opinion, is not worth visiting. Why stop at a port that warrants alerting passengers about crime, and safety and how to avoid?  Would rather stay longer on Turks and Caicos and Half Moon Cay, and skip Nassau altogether. I realize this review is mostly negative, but as I stated 24 out of 25 of my previous Carnival cruises were 100% better, and I do have 4 more Carnival cruises already booked for 2015.

Carnival Freedom

January 2014 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival Freedom Eastern Caribbean Sail Date 1/25/2013

"Smooth Sailing" from embarkation to dis-embarkation.  Ship was very clean, but is showing a little wear and tear, Food was abundant and there was something to satisfy the most finicky eater.  Staff and Crew were always upbeat, smiling and eager to make your vacation most memorable.  Cabin steward Dedy ensured my stateroom was clean, Posh dining room staff, Miguel, Juan and Budi were very attentive and did an amazing job of serving dinner and entertaining; Laura, Lobby Bar, was a great conversationalist and very proficient at her duties. Ports of call  were a sight to behold.

Carnival Liberty

January 2013 - Carnival Liberty to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Liberty Western Caribbean

Embarkation, a breeze, ship very clean, food, so-so, majority of staff not so friendly, kudos for enforcing 'adult only' aft pool, and saving of 'lounge chairs', debarkation a nightmare.
